Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped is a 7×7 cluster pays low to medium variance 3D slots from Betsoft that pays a non-progressive jackpot of 28,305 coins. The RTP (Average Return to Player Percentage) is 96.42% or an edge to the house of 3.58%.
The slots is playable on mobile phones and on PC desktops with a minimum coin value of 0.01 up to 1.00. The slot machine is quite similar to Candy Crush, it’s also the sequel to Sugar Pop – one of Betsoft’s most popular online slot releases to date. The game mechanic features cluster wins and all different types of candies that explode in a cascade across the reels resulting in bigger wins.
The visual side of the slots is a bright affair featuring candy of all colors of the rainbow. Betsoft says: ”Don’t get too comfortable, because things are about to change. In Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped, everything has been reinvented, from leveling to the candies themselves.”
The free spins feature is triggered by a special cluster of candy, up to 27 free spins can be awarded because it’s a re-triggerable free spins mode an indefinite amount can be won. When a larger cluster of candies appear during the free spins it leaves a wild on the reels which increases payline wins by a hefty degree.
There’s also a special Candy Bomb feature with a special meter to the right of the reels. Paying symbols on the reels are the Gumdrop, Caramel Chew, Candy Cane, Lollipop, Fizzypop Candy, Jellybean Cannon, Morphing Golden Wild, Sweet Hammer and loads of other different candy. All winning symbols explode while the remaining symbols drop down to fill the empty space. The net result is successive wins can occur from a single spin.
If you plan on playing Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped for a long session the Auto Play feature spins the reels from 5 to 100x automatically for you. There’s a Double Up button that doubles your wins if you’ve picked the right one: ”Heads or ”Tails”. If you’re feeling lucky you can gamble all your wins but we don’t recommend it.
The Candy Bomb is triggered by 5 or more clusters – the more clusters that pitch the more powerful the bomb, up to 20 symbols can be effected by the bomb. Once the Bomb has been placed it explodes. It works like this:
- 5x Winning clusters affects an area of 6 candies.
- 6x Winnings clusters affects an area of 9 candies.
- 7x Winning clusters affects an area of 12 candies.
- 8x and 9x Winnings clusters affects an area of 16 candies.
- 10x Winning clusters affects an area of 20 candies.
Another interesting snippet about the ‘Candy Bomb’ bonus game is that 5 or more winning symbols in a cluster generates a wild symbol that stays behind after the cluster exploded. The wild symbols substitutes other symbols adjacent to it bar the Free Spins and Level-Up symbols.
When the Level-Up symbol appears special candy symbols are unlocked. To the right of the game screen is the ‘Level-Up Trail’, every time the Level-Up symbol appears the meter fills up.
Level Up Special Candies
The special candies appear on the reels as a giant chocolate surprise egg. Once a cluster win is awarded the egg breaks open revealing one of several special candies. For instance a Morphing Wild candy will shift and take on the shape as any other candy near it. Jelly beans are fired into the air by the Jellybean Cannon, candy symbols are removed from the reels when they land on them. The Sweet Hammer takes out all the other candies when it slams on them. Each cluster win features a unique mechanic making Super Pop 2: Double Dipped an exciting slots to play.
The free spins feature is played when a cluster of 4 or more ‘FS’ symbols appear – 5 free spins will be awarded. The amount of ‘FS’ symbol that appear are proportionate to the free spins awarded. For example, 5x FS symbols award 7 free spins while 15 of them awards 27 free spins. The nice bit about the free spins bonus is that an unlimited amount of free spins can be won. Two extra free spins will be awarded for each symbol in a cluster. A Candy Bomb will be left behind clearing a large portion of the reels when more than 5 clusters resolve in a turn, this results in massive wins!
Sugar Pop 2 is more than just a ‘Sugary Slots’ although it’s one of the more ‘complicated’ games we’ve played in a while. Players can start leveling up from the very first spin. For every new level you reach a new candy is unlocked which adds the player to a ‘spacial candy’ list.
The trick of the game is its level up feature – the higher the level the bigger the rewards. It plays more like a video game than a slots and it’s Candy Crush to us all over again which we enjoyed immensely by the way.
