A Live Casino Pokie Based on the Classic ‘Candy Land’ Children’s Board Game
The game ‘Candy Land’ first appeared in the 1940’s. The game involves picking cards of various colours to move along the game board, with an overall aim of finding King Kandy, the lost king of Candy Land. Now Candy Land has hit the casino, where the pokie remains faithful to the original game – the only difference being that instead of the cards, you’ll spin a wheel to find your colour. The winding board game takes place in the bonus feature.
Why Play the Live Casino Version of Candy Land?
Candy Land is a highly playable and nostalgic game that will transport you back to your childhood, with the following features:
You’ll enter the main bonus feature of the game when you land the bonus symbol in the centre position on the middle reel in the base game. You’ll now find yourself in the middle of the very colourful bonus feature, with the gingerbread man moving along the game board. To travel along the board, you’ll spin the lower of the game wheels which contain a series of colours. You’ll move along to the next instance of that colour on the board. Some of the coloured segments have a line through the middle and landing these will count as two instances of that colour.
Each spot in the path has a credit amount attached to it and you’ll be awarded these amounts cumulatively. In addition, you’ll also occasionally move through segments featuring entry into the following further bonus features:
Princess Lolly’s Lollipop Bonus Feature – This is a pick me feature where you’ll choose from five different coloured lollipops. Each of the lollipops will feature a cash prize and you’ll continue picking until you land the ‘collect’ lollipop. During the feature you might ‘advance’ to the next round, featuring bigger and better prizes and receive a ‘bonus boost’ which will throw a multiplier into the mix.
King Kandy’s Wheel Bonus – Landing this feature will see you look up to the very top of the cabinet, where another spinning wheel awaits. This wheel contains a series of large cash prizes, so you’ll hope the pointer stops on a big number. A nice surprise can await too, as your win amount could be on the end of a nice multiplier. The two biggest segments on the wheel state ‘sweet’ or ‘tasty’ which award the two progressive bonuses.
Queen Frosline’s Free Spins – This interesting feature awards you five free spins. Any time you win, the winning symbols are then frozen, and you’ll be awarded up to 3 free re-spins as long as the wins keep improving. Expect some very big wins in this feature.
This Aristocrat designed pokie has an unusual 5×5 reel set up, with each of the 25 symbols spinning independently. In total there are 45 win-lines across the unique configuration, while the reels feature a whole host of colourful characters and candy. During the base game you might even encounter chocolate-like ‘gloopy wilds’, which add a series of wilds to the reels. If you’re lucky, these added wilds will stick around for another spin.
Candy Land does a fantastic job of recreating the original board game within a live casino gambling machine. This pokie features a fantastic array of colourful characters, while all the bonus features are full of bright reds, yellows, greens and blues. If you thought Candy Crush was full of colour, you’ve not played this game. This pokie is ideal for the nostalgic amongst us, while those with a liking for candy will also find appeal – others might want to wear sunglasses or brush their teeth after playing!
This board game themed pokie is a fine addition to the casino floor. While the overly colourful design might have a ‘love it or hate it’ effect, it can’t be denied that the gameplay is fantastic. The crux of the game is the Candy Land bonus, which as well as awarding some fine wins, will enable the additional bonus features. With all this variety in one place, this game will have a lasting appeal.
