Sweet Alchemy Slot Machine

Sweet Alchemy, a Play'N Go game, is the sort of release where you can get a lot of features and a gameplay style that doesn’t feel natural for a slot machine, with multiple levels to go through and hopefully with good payouts as well. It’s a candy themed design, the likes of which we’ve seen quite a few times already.

You get the 5x5 reels of Sweet Alchemy with a cluster system in place, so you’re not using the usual ways to win or pay lines. You get paid even as much as 3,000x as you play it, and along the way you can expect to find three types of wilds inside, along with a Sugar Rush Meter which delivers free spins at the right times. We know what the game’s RTP is as well, 96.50%, which makes it a good pick for anyone that’s looking for this sort of complicated gameplay.

Betting and Prizes

Anyone looking to play Sweet Alchemy doesn’t have to worry about individual lines and the amount that goes to each one. Instead, you decide on the total amount to use in the game, varying from $0.10 to $100, and that is the value taken into consideration when payouts are decided.

Clusters of symbols will decide the payouts, and on average the slot will pay at a 96.50% rate back to players. There are rewards reaching 3,000x, which could mean $300,000 out of a single round even.

Sweet Alchemy Slot Features

When it comes to feature symbols, only wilds are going to be available inside, but they do come in three variants. There is the regular wild for one, the symbol that you get to use as a substitute. Next, you have Striped Wilds, symbols that can take over entire columns or rows if they can contribute to wins this way. Finally, there are the Dotted Wilds, which pick one random symbol and then replace all instances of it on the reels, and this also happens only if wins can be triggered this way.

Creating winning combinations in Sweet Alchemy requires that you have at least four symbols of the same type touching. This not only pays you, but also increases the slot’s Sugar Rush Meter.

Get this meter filled with a total of 6 symbols in a single round, and 2 wilds will be placed in two random positions, so that new wins can be formed. 13 symbols in the meter will add a feature with 2 striped wilds, which modify two rows or columns. Once again, the symbols that are removed will be added to the meter. 25 symbols added to the meter gets you 2 Dotted Wilds for the round. Moving on, you can also have 38 symbols in that meter, in which case you get a free round called Mix the Elixir.

Mix the Elixir involves a free round with 9x9 symbols in play. The round features Candy Spells, and it ends once there are no more to be used. You can get Mixed Candy, Sweet Surprise or Sugar Bombs.

Theme & Design

The design is the one that we’ve seen in other cluster slots in the past, particularly the ones with candy for symbols. That’s what we’re getting in this game as well, with images on the reels being of doughnuts, cones, beans, cubes, pastille, nuts, hearts and stars. It’s a cute looking game, even though it’s not particularly unique anymore.


Sweet Alchemy can be a fairly interesting game, with a huge number of features available inside and with cute graphics. It pays about as well as a regular slot machine, so play it if you want something unique.
