Sugar Land is the kind of game that’s got a design so sweet, that you can feel a tooth ache just by looking at it. Wherever you look in this new release from Playtech, you will discover candy, coming in dozens of different variants, though not all of them made it to the reels, as symbols.
Sugar Land’s 5x4 reels are big enough that they can accommodate 50 lines with ease. You can count on the game paying at an RTP of 96.19% in the long run, with rewards of up to 500 coins being mentioned as well. The features that were prepared for this slot include a wild symbol, a scatter and the free spins, a pretty average mix, all things considered.
Betting and Prizes
The bets of Sugar Land will begin from a minimum of $0.50, in which case you are covering the 50 lines with individual bets of $0.01. The maximum bet can apparently reach a top value of $100, where the line bet would be set to $2.
It’s 500 coins that you’re going after when you’re playing Sugar Land. That’s the best payout that a single combo of symbols can offer you, and if the denomination is set to $2, then the prize would be worth $1,000. Don’t worry though, the RTP of 96.19% guarantees that the slot will pay about as well as most slots that are considered modern right now.
Sugar Land Slot Features
I didn’t find the list of features in Sugar Land to be particularly impressive. It starts off with a wild symbol, shown as a round chocolate ball with candy sticking out of it. This substitute is a reliable way to get a new combo formed, with other matching symbols contributing along with the wild if they are on the same active line. Wild symbols do not pay you directly, since they can’t form their own wins. They are limited to appearances on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels. The scattered Chocolate Bar will not be replaceable with a wild, but any other type of symbol will.
You only need three scatters in view, to get access to free spins, but the problem is that those are the only ones that can appear anyway. Only the reels 2, 3 and 4 can get scatters to show up on them. The image of the scatter shows a Chocolate Bar and a logo.
10 free spins can be activated at this point. You can collect Gravy Boats from the reels when they appear, and in exchange the game will transform candy symbols into additional wilds, while also adding to the free spins.
With 3 Gravy Boats, you get the Red Candy to turn into a Wild. With 7 collected, the Orange Candy will do the same, plus you also trigger 3 additional spins. Finally, with 12 Gravy Boats collected, you transform the Green Candy into a wild, while adding 2 free spins to the total.
Theme & Design
The theme of Sugar Land has everything to do with candy, no matter in what shape or form it comes. The background image is filled with mountains of sugary confections, and about the same thing can be expected from the symbols shown on the reels. Chocolate bars, round candy, gummy bears and all sorts of other delicious sweets are used as images for them.
Sugar Land is not alone in this category, of slot machines that offer a sugar and candy inspired theme, and most of them are as colorful and as sickeningly sweet looking as this one. Its RTP might prove an advantage over some of the others though.
