Game of the Week – Candy Tower
If you like mobile games like Candy Crush, then you may like Candy Tower. It is the latest 5-Reel Cluster Pays pokie from Habanero. The game has the look and feel of popular mobile match games along with fun features that can win you massive prizes.
Candy Tower A Sweet New Pokie Experience
Candy Tower is the latest Cluster Pays pokie game from Habanero. The game requires clusters of 7 symbols to make a payout. There are only six symbols. The lower paying symbols are the yellow, blue, and purple candies. The green and red candies are the higher paying symbols. The wild symbol is also a paying symbol in clusters of 7 or more. Payouts for wilds are equal to payouts for the red candies.
Like most Cluster Pays pokies, you have to land a single large cluster combination or multiple clusters to turn a profit on a single spin. However, there are multiple features in this game that can help you score some massive wins.
Wild Drop Feature
Prior to any spin, the Wild Drop Feature can trigger at random. If this happens, a hot air candy balloon will float across the screen and drop from 3 to 10 wild symbols on rows 3 through 5. This can happen during the base game and free spins game.
This feature triggered three times for me during testing. The first time I got 5 wilds and won about 12x my initial bet. The other times I got the minimum of three.
Free Spins Game
The Scatter symbol will trigger the free games feature. Get 10, 15, 50, or 250 free spins based on catching 3 to 6 scatters. During the base game, there are five candy collection counters that can fill. They are tied to the free spins game. Below are the features that will activate during the free spins game if they are filled.
Vertical Boost – Land 5 or more yellow candy winning combinations to trigger this feature. Any wild symbol that lands during the free spins game will expand to cover three symbols vertically.
Horizontal Boost – Triggers when 5 or more blue candy winning combinations hit during the base game. Wild symbols expand to cover three symbols horizontally.
Cash Boost – Triggers when you land 25 or more purple candy winning combinations in base game. During each free spin, an instant cash prize will appear on three to 10 symbols. These are multipliers of the bet levels. You will get a 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x, 18x, 28x, 58x, 88x, 188x, 288x, 588x, or a 888x prize.
Roaming Boost – Triggers when you land 30 or more green candy winning combinations in the base game. At the start of the free spins game, a single wild will appear in a random position. For each subsequent spin, the symbol will move a position in any direction.
Multiplier Boost – Triggers when 35 or more red candy combinations land in the base game. All prizes won during the free games are doubled.
After each feature is triggered, you will have a random piece added to the candy tower.
Note, if you activate all five features before you trigger the free spins, you will automatically get 15 free spins for three scatters instead of 10. All collectors are reset to zero after the free spins feature is completed.
I was able to trigger the free spins game twice. I had the vertical and horizontal boosts activated the first time and the second time the free spins triggered before I was able to trigger any features. Both times I won about 20x my initial bet.
Candy Tower Crushes The Competition
To say that I like Candy Tower is an understatement. This game is a fun and addictive game similar to Candy Crush, but with the opportunity to win some serious prizes. With an RTP of 96.73%, you will have a solid chance of scoring some big wins.
