What a sweet treat as Sweet Alchemy 2 slot gives you cluster pays, expanding reels and some volatile reels that hide 10,000x your bet max wins.
This sequel doesn’t stray far from the original Sweet Alchemy slot theme – you have sweets and chocolates as high and low-paying symbols, with a wide-eyed witch by the side as your guide to these candy-filled lands.
The Sweet Alchemy 2 mobile slot starts as a 5×5 grid, but every win destroys the chocolate blocks around the grid, potentially opening up 56 extra spaces for wins and triggering the free spin bonus.
Collecting symbols in the free spins bonus could see you win huge multipliers, though never forget that this is a mid to high-variance machine – use the min bet of 0.10 a spin wisely and build up (up to 100 a spin) your spin budget slowly and carefully.
4 stars is a great review. It says that we loved the cutesy theme, the graphic and animations were smooth on our top mobile casinos, the mechanics were fun, and the win was decent.
But the first of these Play’n GO slots got 5 stars. So what has changed? Namely the volatility.
The first embraced its quick win low variance – lots of wins, lots of features, lots of actions and very little damage to your wallet. It was reassuring and fun.
Sweet Alchemy, however, is a medium to high variance slot that has a huge top win of 10,000x your bet, which means that getting the feature is just a little harder. You’ll need patience and experience to survive these potions.
Thankfully, if you’ve never played the original, you won’t care because there’s plenty here to love in this Sweet Alchemy 2 video slot.
For one, you have two wild symbols, one that can stick around for up to 5 avalanching wins, and the other destroys entire rows and columns, adding more space for more symbols.
For two, you have a bonus within a bonus: the free spins can easily retrigger as the chocolate blocks don’t reset between spins, and as you collect symbols, you can win big multipliers.
Getting to those bonuses won’t be easy, but if you’ve ever enjoyed Play’n GO grid games like the Viking Runecraft slot or the Gold Volcano review, you now have a new game to play on rotation.

Cluster Pays and Avalanching Wins: When 4 or more symbols touch horizontally/vertically, you get a cluster of wins. These symbols explode, and more come down to replace them, giving you an avalanche of wins. This continues until no more wins are found on the reels.
Chocolate Blocks: When you get a winning cluster, an equal amount of chocolate blocks will also be removed, expanding the grid and number of symbols available to play.
Gobstopper Wild: These are wild symbols and will substitute for all other symbols to create a cluster of wins. When it lands, it can have up to 5 lives and stays on screen for as many lives as it has during multiple avalanching clusters. The wild goes away on the next paying spin.
Stripped Wild: This strip candy substitutes for all other symbols and removes the full row and column when used in a win.
Free Spins Bonus: If you manage to destroy all the chocolate blocks in one avalanching spin, you trigger 4 free spins with 2x2 mega symbols now added to the spins, and the chocolate blocks' destruction does not reset between spins.
If you destroy all 56 chocolate blocks again, you'll get an extra 4 free spins with the mega blocks increased to 3x3. A third retrigger gives you 4 free spins with mega blocks of 4x4. The max number of free spins you can play is 12 free spins.
Bonus Wheel Game: During the free spin bonus, two random symbols are chosen to be collected as you spin. Depending on how many of these symbols you collect will define if you get the bonus and how many spins you get on the wheel.
The Bonus game consists of a wheel with 5 rings. Land on a multiplier value, win the multiplier on your bet size, and spring to the next ring below. If you land on a blank spot, you lose a life. If you have an extra spin, you get to spin again.
The game ends when you lose all your lives or you get the max multiplier.
Sweet Alchemy 2 is a 5x5 video slot with cluster pays and avalanching wins that can increase to a 9x9 grid for up to 10,000x your bet max win.
If you love grid slots, you'll love this sequel. If you don't, this slot game won't change your mind.
It's sweet but volatile, with many random features keeping you engaged and two bonus features that are hard to catch. But when you do, it feels like a real treat.
Sweet Alchemy 2 slot isn't quite as enticing as the original, mostly because the fun of the original was its quick-win nature. Still, not a bad way to spend a Friday night at your favourite online casino.
