A sweet filled Microgaming game, this Candy Dreams mobile slot promises lots of wins thanks to its 720 ways to win and low volatility.
This Candy Dreams slot however, follows along the lines of the more recent Pollen Party game, using the same game engine and providing you with adjacent wins across a 3 x 4 x 5 x 4 x 3 reel layout.
Due to this Candy Dreams game being on the lower variance side, plus it having a high return to player rate of between 96 and 97%, you generally get of little wins, often.
That’s thanks in part to the wild symbol which shows up on almost every spin and comes stacked.
Basically, it rewards you with 4x or 5x times your total bet every few spins, with some bigger 10 – 15x your bet wins every 20 spins or so.
The adjacent symbol wins from left to right also help in creating these wins, all to keep you spinning in the hope of triggering the two bonus features.
We’re not going to lie; during our review testing this Candy Dreams video slot it took us quite a while to trigger either of the two bonus features.
Which is a shame, because as nice as the frequent wins are, they don’t keep your balance topped up quick enough, and you can quickly get bored.
When the free spins do hit though, you will be rewarded with 12 free games where if you find a wild on reel 3, you’ll get up to 3 extra wilds across the reels in the hope for bigger wins.
Don’t get your hopes up though; even though this Microgaming slot has potential wins up to 110,000 in cash, you’re more likely to walk away with 20 – 40x your bet if you’re lucky.
And then there’s the Candy Planet pick me bonus, which is just as elusive as the Candy Dreams free spins, but offers you a small mini game where you get to pick planets to reveal cash prizes.
Simple and rewarding, but again, by the time you get there, you’re exciting will have probably waned.
On the bright side, it’s far more fun than the So Much Candy slot by the same provider, so bonus points for improving on the theme.

Wilds: The Candy Dreams slot logo is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except the scatters. It also comes stacked across the five reels.
Scatters: The multi coloured lolly and the big round pick-me candy with stars are the scatters, which help trigger the bonus free spins and pick me bonus.
Candy Planet Bonus: Find 3, 4, or 5 of the pink lolly scatters and you'll trigger the bonus game.
Here you get to pick from 20 planets to reveal cash prizes until you reveal a pop. You can also reveal a pop blocker which will save you from a pop and lets you continue picking.
Candy Dreams Free Spins: Find 3, 4, or 5 of the multi coloured swirl lollies and you'll trigger 12 free spins.
The bonus games have special wild that can show up on the centre reel and reward you with up to 3 extra wilds across the reels. This, in turn, can create some bigger wins, but only if you're lucky.
Unfortunately these can't be re-triggered and you can't trigger the Candy Planet bonus from within the free spins.
A bright and colourful game, this Candy Dreams slot on mobile will appeal to those looking for some light hearted, frequent wins fun.
With a betting range of 0.50 up to 250, it gives those with a wide range of budgets the chance at a spin, but just be careful.
Those bonus games don't hit frequently and the base game wins aren't always big enough to keep your balance on top.
If you're after a sweet slot theme then this is worth a look, but Microgaming's Fruit Vs Candy mobile slot also provides a goodie bag full of bonus delights.
