A candy-loving witch can conjure up some very tasty treats in Sweet Alchemy, the latest video slot from Play ’N Go to hit the online casino shelves.
Played using a 5 reel, 5 row game engine, winning combinations are created by landing clusters of at least 4 matching sweetie symbols. The best of the standard symbol is the red heart which will get you a payout of 20 times your bet if you build a cluster of 8 or more symbols.
Sweet Alchemy is played using a cascading reels game engine – winning symbols are removed from play and new ones replace them. The cascades continue until there’s one where no new winner is created. Every time you land a winner, the successful sweet symbols are added to a meter. Once the sweet meter passes specific amounts, extra goodies are brought into play.
When the sweet meter reaches 6, a pair of standard symbols are replaced by wilds. Collect 13 symbols in the meter and you’ll add a pair of striped wilds where all of the symbols on the same reel or row are replaced when they form a winner and are added to the meter.
Dotted wilds are added after you collect 25 symbols. These remove all matching symbols anywhere on the reels and put them in the meter. Fill all 38 positions in the meter and you’ll trigger the Mix The Elixir Free Games.
This round is played on an expanded 9×9 grid. Look out here for the spells which can shuffle symbols to create new winning combinations, add between 7 and 12 wilds or destroy up to 15 symbols and create a new cascade. The free spins are played out over 3 levels. Finish all of them and you’ll head to the Map feature where even more prizes can be won.
Many cascading reels video slots are simple affairs. Play ’N Go has packed in some different features here rather than the standard expanding multipliers. What is consistent with many games from this developer is that Sweet Alchemy is a very high variance offering with potential payouts of 3,000 times your bet.
If you’re looking for a game that combines sugary visuals, cascading reels and super high volatility then you should find Sweet Alchemy to be a sweet treat. I recommend you play Sweet Alchemy at ComeOn Casino.
