Free Sugar Parade slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Sugar Parade slot is yet another game with an infantile theme, this time revolving around the subjects of sweet treats. It follows a number of games on a similar theme, including Quickspin's Sugar Trail and Playtech's Sweet Party to name a few. You open the slot to some immediately infuriating cartoon marching music and the transparent reels lie over a cartoon fantasy scene of sweet planets and clouds with ridiculous characters on them. One can only hope things improve from here once I've turned the volume down in order to retain my sanity, but will playing Sugar Parade leave us feeling sweet or sour?
On the reels...
You pay 15 coins for the 15 pay lines over 5 reels of 3 rows each. The icons are all single and your best pay will be for a 5-of-a-kind Wild which is 500x bet should you be lucky, and 5 scatters will award 400x too. These are the exceptions though and your realistic wins will be the various characters formed from candy - Queens or Mice pay 33x, the Cone? 17x, Boy 8x, Blue Thing or Ace 7x and the others are also card values either King or Queen for 5x for the full line win. No random features but two bonus rounds can be won.
If you see three or more Candy Princesses on a winning line left to right you will be taken to a screen with 12 sweets of 2 different designs. You simply get a pick for each symbol that triggered it and for a 15-coin stake the wins are capped at a pitiful 20x bet for 3 picks, 27x bet for 4 and 33x stake for 5 picks. Utterly pointless and usually you will be far short of those caps!
If you see 3 or more of a weird-looking bald female with long eyelashes and a what appears to be a trumpet sticking out of her shoulder, 10 free games are yours at 3x multiplier. You can retrigger them and this is where you'd want to see 5 Wilds in a line as that would pay 1500x bet, but bear in mind most other pays are small and aside from Wilds you have little potential here. You can trigger the Sweet Picks bonus in the free games.
Sugar Parade slot is one of the most irritating games I've played, which is saying something! I had to mute the inane music and sounds very quickly, but I could not escape the sickly sweet gameplay. The character icons appear to have been created by someone during a hallucinogenic trip and like the rest of it all completely bizarre, but not in a good way. The volatility is quite low and although the RTP is a decent 96.35% I doubt you'd see much of a profit from it due to the math model. It simply isn't worth it plugging away in the hope of seeing a Wild line - go elsewhere for your sugar rush...
