The Candyways Bonanza Megaways slot doesn’t have 117,649 ways to win, but only 512 ways to win – so can it compete with other Megaways machines?
Yes. Yes, it can. If the 4-star slot review didn’t give it away, we had a great time playing on this Candyways Bonanza Megaways mobile slot, and mostly because it’s only 3 reels.
On any spins this Candyways game can show anything from 2 to 8 symbols on any one of the reels, giving you as little as 6 ways to win all the way to 512.
It’s not as much as the original Bonanza Megaways slot, that’s for sure, but that just makes Candyways more accessible to those who aren’t used to the Megaways mechanics.
Don’t think that because you have fewer reels it means you have less chance to win. StakeLogic studios have still managed to give you the chance to win big thanks to huge multipliers on the win.
Get 3 scatters and you’ll trigger 10 free spins. Only during the free spins, any bonus symbols that land could have anything from a 2x to 100x multiplier. And no, it’s not a multiplier on a win, it’s a multiplier you collect and is then applied to all further wins on the free spins in the Candyways bonus games.
For example, if you get a 100x multiplier on that first spin, every win for the following 9 spins will have a 100x multiplier. If you get a further 100x scatter, you’ll then have a 200x multiplier on all further spins.
All the big wins are in the free spins and the free spins can be hugely disappointing. Let’s not forget that this is still a Megaways, meaning it’s a very volatile machine – getting 100x multipliers is rare, mostly you’ll be lucky if you get 50x multiplier.
But with 512 ways to win, even 20x multiplier can give you huge wins, ranging up to 1,000x your bet. So don’t despair, but be careful with your budget.
If you can afford it, it’s worth turning on the super stake button which doubles your chances of getting the scatters and the Candyways Bonanza Megaways slot bonus. But it will cost you half your bet again, and can quickly drain your budget.
As for buying the free spins bonus, at 150x your bet, its’ a very expensive gamble that won’t always pay off. But that’s true of most buy free spin bonuses, as with the Vikings Unleashed Megaways slot and many others. Better left as a last hail mary.

Megaways: On any spin, you can get anything from 2 to 8 symbols appear on any of the 3 reels, giving you up to 512 ways to win.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 bonus symbols and you'll trigger 10 free spins. The bonus symbols in the Candyways Bonanza Megaways free spins have a multiplier value of between x2 and x100. Only one bonus symbol can land on each reel. These bonus symbols multipliers are added together and applied to wins on each free spin. You can re-trigger and get a further 10 spins.
Buy Free Spins: For 150x your bet you can buy and trigger the free spins bonus.
Super Stake: For an additional bet (so on the minimum bet of 0.10, adding the super stake will increase the bet to 0.15, or a 1 spin bet will be increased to 1.50).
Gamble Feature: You can choose the colour or suit of the next card in a pack and win either 2x or 4x your win. If you guess wrong, you lose your win.
We weren't sure we'd enjoy a 3 reel Megaways slot game, but it turns out that this was a revelation. It makes the game a little simpler and a little more accessible to all players, whilst still keeping wins of over 20,000x your bet.
Candyways Bonanza Megaways slot is all about biding your time and getting to the free spins where you can add up multipliers after multipliers, giving you huge wins.
Or just lets you spin happily and appreciate all those changing rows of symbols spin to spin. Just be careful with the super stake or the free spin buying, as both can quickly drain your wallet.
