What is “Sugar Pop” mobile slot about?
Sugar Pop, by Betsoft, is a mobile slot app of which can be accessed through iPhones/smartphones or tablets that run iOS/Android operating systems. There is no downloadable app required as it uses HTML5; this means that it can be accessed from mobile web browsers.
Sugar Pop is themed on candies; the slot consists of 5 reels and uses the ‘all ways pay’ method (discussed later). The coins range from $0.01 to $1.00 and a minimum bet of $0.50 is required (250 coins max). This reel is a tumbling reel and so winning combinations will vanish and give potential for new combinations to be created. There is no real jackpot prize in this game as the highest win varies so much but can reach up to 2,500 (quite rare) for a 50 coin bet. Sugar Pop offers so many bonus games and a free spin feature but there are no wilds/scatters.
Look & Feel
Sugar Pop feels quite similar to other popular ‘match 3’ games and Betsoft have used light, feminine colours for this game. The symbols are quite basic but look nice. The game’s backdrop features fluffy clouds and a lot of pink/blue. The game sounds are quite unique and the spin animation and sound effects are quite interesting as they don’t take the conventional spin animations that most mobile slots have taken.
Game and Winnings
Sugar Pop is a tumble reel and any winning combination will disappear and give potential for new winning combinations to be created. The game requires a player to play at least 50 coins as a minimum (maximum 250 coins) and each coin must have a denomination between $0.01 and $1.00. The pay table will give all of the information needed for all the wins as, unlike most conventional slots, this game grants pay outs based on adjacent shapes (with each shape having a different pay-out). In order to win a pay-out, at least 3 of the same shapes must be touching on any side to be awarded with a pay-out according to the pay table and diagonally touching will not count.
A ‘level meter’ will appear on the right hand side of the slot and playing spins will increase your level. As the levels increase, different special candies will appear of which each will have different properties; examples of special candy properties include a ‘colour bomb’ of which occurs when 5 adjacent candies match and if this combines with matching candies before the next spin, all of those candies on the reel will explode and pay out. The rest of the special candies can be seen on the pay table and there are 12 special candies and Sugar Pop offers up to 5 worlds and 30 levels to play. A bonus pattern will appear on the right-hand side of the reel and exploding candies in the position of the pattern given will award you up to 600 points to your level meter.
Special candies can randomly occur after each spin but for the most part, normal candies will be on the reels. These candies have symbols of which include a red sphere, a blue oblong, a green hexagon, a yellow teardrop, an orange square, a pink heart and a purple triangle (in descending order of value).
