Sweet Alchemy is not going to be a completely unique slot machine, but even the way it forms its combinations is going to be fairly rare among today’s games, so the features will help take it a step further. This is a slot machine from Play’n Go, which relies on the cluster system and on a Sugar Rush Meter mechanic.
5 reels of 5 symbols will constitute the playing field for Sweet Alchemy. The cluster pay system, along with the cascading reels, the Sugar Rush Meter, three variants of wild symbols and free rounds will be the major features that you can expect from it. Payout wise, it can apparently deliver up to 3,000x, which should mean payouts of up to $300,000.
Betting and Prizes
There is no need to worry about the lines or ways to win here. You only get the total amount to choose, and the range is a standard one, going from $0.10 to $100. The total bet is the one considered when the payout is calculated.
Based on what we know right now, the game is capable of paying 3,000x the stake in the best-case scenario, so with the right bet you could potentially win $300,000 from a single round. The RTP is at a standard percentage, of 96.50%, but this can be lower in certain jurisdictions, so check for yourself if you’re playing at a Play’n Go casino.
Sweet Alchemy Features
This is not the first game from Play’n Go to offer this type of action, with the symbols forming their wins when they appear grouped. The clusters need to have a minimum of four matching symbols in them. When the combination forms, it removes the winning symbols, so that others can occupy those positions and form extra wins.
Three wild symbols are in use, starting with the regular version, continuing with striped wilds and dotted wilds. The last two are not typical for a slot, with the former removing a column or row when it’s included in a win, while the latter chooses a symbol and removes all its instances.
The focus seems to be on the Sugar Rush Meter here, which you fill with winning symbols that are obtained from a single round. Depending on the number of symbols that reach the meter, different outcomes can occur.
6 symbols in the Meter will trigger a feature where 2 wilds are placed on the reels, to replace 2 symbols.
13 symbols that reach the Meter will add 2 striped wilds in the place of 2 symbols, the action being the one I mentioned above.
25 symbols use 2 dotted wilds in the place of 2 symbols, and once again there is that special type of action taking place.
38 symbols on the Meter constitute the best possible outcome that you can expect, and it will trigger a free round called Mix the Elixir.
Mix the Elixir will have 3 Candy Spells initially, with the chance to get up to 4 extra. The grid of the free round is bigger, with 9×9 symbols. Candy Spells can be turned into Mixed Candy, Sweet Surprise (7-12 wilds) or Sugar Bombs (7-15 symbols destroyed).
Theme & Design
It’s a game that’s all about candy that is being destroyed, so the idea seems to be to copy the Candy Crush Saga franchise and a lot of other games that have appeared since then. The quality of the design is excellent, but typical for this sort of slot machine. An Anime girl is your constant companion, to the right side of the game area.
It’s a good game, but very complex and not every player will have the patience to learn everything about it. The quality is there though, and if you’re tired of simple slots this might be for you.
