Play’N Go’s Sweet Alchemy game is an online slot featuring five reels. The slot features colourful sweets of different shapes and sizes and plays similar to Candy Crush.
How to Play
Before players start, they should adjust their bet by clicking the ‘+/-‘ buttons at the bottom of the screen. They can also decide whether or not they want the autoplay feature on. When this is all done, players can click the ‘Spin’ button to begin the game.
Sweet Alchemy doesn’t feature paylines, instead, players are required to match clusters of four or more symbols just like Candy Crush. However, the game also features wild and scatter symbols.
Wild symbols are represented by the striped candy and can remove an entire row or column when it forms a winning combination. There are also chocolate-sprinkled sweet symbols which act as wilds, removing all instances of a random symbol when part of a win.
To the right of the screen is the Sugar Rush Meter which fills up with every winning symbol. It resets at the end of each round but filling it completely will result in special Wilds being added to the reels.
Mix the Elixir Bonus
If players land 38 winning symbols in one round and manage to fill the Super Rush Meter completely, they trigger the Mix the Elixir bonus round which features three different candy spells. This feature is played on a 9×9 grid and the player is asked to specific symbols by forming winning clusters around them.
In the feature, players are given three candy spells with a total of seven on offer. When spinning in the Mix the Elixir bonus round, the Alchemist will cast candy spells to help you win. The three base spells are:
Mixed Candy: Symbols on the grid shuffle to give players better wins.
Sweet Surprise: Between seven and 12 wild symbols are randomly added to the grid.
Sugar Bombs: Between 7 and 15 normal symbols are destroyed and replaced by different symbols.
The feature consists of three levels and players can access each level by forming wins of the required symbols. Completing the first level rewards the player with the Elixir of Power feature in which players are tasked with selecting chocolate tiles and matching three together to reveal magic elixirs.
In level one, players can win three or five times their stake or two to three times their total win from the extra spins. In level two, players can win ten times their stake or five times their total win from the extra spins. In level three, players can win up to ten times their stake or ten times their total win from the extra spins. In addition to this, players can also win a x10 multiplier after completing the third level.
There’s also a map feature in the game and every time you complete the Elixir of Power Bonus feature, the players move one position on the map. After moving three spaces on the map, players are rewarded with Treasure Chests which offer players 15% of winnings from the base game.
Sweet Alchemy is a colourful and entertaining slot. It borrows heavily from Candy Crush but features some great gameplay mechanics and bonus features such as the Mix the Elixir bonus round.
We really enjoyed this game and recommend it to anyone who hasn’t given it a go.
