Red Tiger, an internationally recognized developer of HTML5 casino games based in Malta, has officially launched Sugar Monster, a candy-themed slot where players meet a sugar-loving sugar monster and join him on his adventures.
True to its name, the main theme of the slot is the aforementioned sugar monster. In the background of the reels, players may see various candy dispersed on the floor, where sugar monsters actively looking for sweet sugar.
The scatter pays mechanic is applied here, where wins are made when players make a combinations of 12 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels on a dynamic 6×6 grid, which further triggers a cascading feature. Also, the game is available on all devices, has high volatility, a default RTP of 95.72% and a maximum win of 10,806x a player’s bet.
The basic low-value symbols are red, orange, green, purple and yellow caramels, while the high-value bonus symbols are orange, yellow, green, purple and pink cakes. A combination of 20 or more low-value symbols is worth between 4x to 12x, increasing to 16x to 50x a player’s bet for the combination of 20 or more high-value bonus symbols.
Cascade – when players make a winning combination, this feature is triggered. Upon activation, each symbol that was part of said winning combination will disappear from the reels, and then new ones will appear descending to fill the empty spaces. This feature stops when there are no more winning combinations in sight.
Sugar Monster – throughout players spins, the sugar monster may appear randomly and represents 1×1 Wild symbol which assist in making additional winning combinations by replacing other paying symbols. However, it will not vanish if it is involved in the aforementioned winning combinations, and players may just land one sugar monster per round.
When wins are made, the sugar monster will devour symbols included in the winning combination, further contributing to the filling of the progress bar, further triggering cascading feature. Additionally, this has 4 levels, and every cascade that the aforementioned sugar monster devours will fill 1 level. But, if players fill up all 4 levels throughout the same spin, a bonus round, aka free spins, will be triggered.
Cotton Multipliers – each time the sugar monster devours symbols, it may randomly produce a maximum of 3 cotton candy multipliers, with values of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x and 100x. When the spin ends, those multipliers will be added up and applied to the overall win throughout the current spin.
Free Spins – if players fill the progress bar and come to the level 4, this one is triggered. Upon activation, players are rewarded with 10 free spins, and at the beginning, the sugar monster will transform into a 2×2 Wild that locks in the middle position. However, players will get 3 additional free spins if the sugar monster devours 4 consecutive wins. Additionally, the sugar monster will once again have the opportunity to create cotton candy multipliers, and its multiplier progress will remain throughout the entire feature. The multiplier will only be applied when the latest cotton multiplier lands.
If players possess a multiplier when the feature is triggered, it will be reset after it is applied to that current win.
Bonus Buy – in order to trigger this feature, the player should want to get to the Free Spins immediately. There are 2 options:
- 3x – players will participate in a spin where a sugar monster wild will appear;
- 80x – players will trigger the free spins feature.
