This very well presented slot has 5 rows and 5 columns of candy stationed in the center of a factory that seems built with marshmallows in the middle of a valley that seems as if it were taken from the tale of Hansel and Gretel, with green meadows and many giant candy canes and lollipops. To make a winning, you need to connect 4 or more symbols, and glancing at the paytable you might think that not worth giving a chance to this slot, which by the way, symbols do not spin but collapse, and if a line is formed, they disappear to let more symbols to fall and possibly get more hits, and it is also highly known that this kind of games usually have lower payouts because several hits can occur within a single turn.
The most exciting of this game are its special features, which flow vigorously throughout the game, and they are:
- Free Spins: randomly and in the middle, often it appears a lollipop, which is recorded in a type of meter located to the right side, which automatically triggers a round of free spins when you've raised a total of 5 lollipops; the number of spins you get is random, in my case, always I got between 8 and 20 free spins, and on one occasion I was close to re-trigger this round since during free spins I got four lollipops, anyway after finishing my spins, the last lollipop appeared very quickly.
- Bonus: This is perhaps the most difficult feature to be activated, since it needs to get three bonus symbols simultaneously in any position, and that is not a common occurrence here. Once activated, you can enjoy one of three events: boat race, exploding Candy, and Candy train, apparently all these rounds grant very good prizes, but the truth is I cannot talk much about them as I had not the pleasure of playing them.
- Instant win: an instant random award may happen after any candy ends of sliding. This feature appears more or less frequently and it’s one of my favorites along with free spins round.
I have to say that overall, I really like the work of Cayetano Gaming, and although I do not always win in its games, most often I have a lot of fun, and fortunately, with "Candy Factory", I could get both, fun and some profits, what more could you ask for!
