Three Candy Based Titles with Linked Progressive Jackpots
You could be looking at some sweet wins with the Sugar Hit Jackpots. This is a 5-level progressive, linked between three titles in the ‘Sugar Hits’ range. These are ‘Cool, I Scooped it Again’, ‘Rich Rich Chocolate Respins’ and ‘Reel Sweet Stacks’.
These three pokies all feature bright, bold candy designs. Think lollipops, chocolate bars and wrapped boiled sweets covering the reels. Not only are the designs over the top, there is some entertaining game-play too. Stacked reels, fairies that change symbols and frozen reel respins are involved. Now you can win 5 progressive jackpots by hitting stacks of special symbols on the reels.
Time for a Sugar Rush?
Each title has variations in the candies featured and the game-play. Here are the key elements to look out for:
What I like best about this jackpot system is that you can win on any spin. Instead of a separate bonus wheel or picks game, you need to line up stacked jackpot symbols.
These appear on all of the Sugar Hit pokies, and to win you simply need to cover two or more reels. If you want to win the biggest jackpot, you need to cover the entire set of reels with special jackpot symbols. This can happen in either the base game or free spins bonus round. When those jackpot symbols land, you’ll see a big message pop up telling you which of the 5-level progressives is yours. Get one of the bigger ones, and you’ll enjoy a waterfall effect of candies, with the regular Aristocrat coin fountain in front.
I’m not sure if this is the Tooth Fairy. Though whatever her title, you’ll be pleased to see her over the reels in any of the Sugar Hits pokie titles.
This lady will wave a wand, which will turn stacked symbols into high paying ones. These will tend to link up winning combinations (though will not always lead to big wins). What I like best here is that the fairy can also turn symbols into wild stacks. This can trigger a Sugar Hit jackpot win on a spin where you thought that you had missed.
As well as the linked jackpots and fairy features, you’ll find different extras depending on which of the games you choose.
In Rich Rich Chocolate Respins there is a respin feature. This holds the stacked jackpot in place, and gives you 3 spins of the other reels. Any chocolates are held in place, with the remaining reels spinning. You have a shot at covering the entire 5×4 grid in this high paying symbol.
The other titles feature free spins bonus games. All the features from the base game are active, and you will have 8 spins to make the most sweet cash you can.
In contrast to how lively the game-play and visual effects are, the setup of these poker machines is simple. There is a 5-reel, 4 row grid for the reels. 40 win-lines cross this, with bets starting at just 1c per line.
Wild symbols are in play, and you can cover entire reels with them. Winning symbols vary from title to title. Lollipops with a rag-doll ending are used for bonus symbols.
If there is one thing all 3 titles have in common, it is a cacophony of bright, clashing colours. There are swirls of red on orange sweets, sparking gold of wrapped sweets and bright dollops of ice-cream. With the fairy, bold jackpot symbols and plenty of winning animations, this pokie can best be described as over-the-top!
These are popular casino pokies, and with good reason. They stand out among the many serious themed games – and have a ton to offer in terms of visual effects and lively game-play.
Stacked symbols (including wilds) means that triggering many of the 40 win-lines, or even all of them, is possible every time you spin. Add to this the simple way you can win progressive jackpot prizes, plus individual features for each title – and you have a combination which could lead to a sweet pokies session.
