Chocolates is a brand-new release created by Big Time Gaming (BTG) in a partnership with slot developer giant, Microgaming. The game is based around the story of a famous chocolatier, Jose Cavadore, who dishes out golden tickets and the chance to win big. Other popular slot game titles from Big Time Gaming include Slot Vegas, Star Clusters, Survivor, and Royal Mint. The fact that BTG has partnered with Microgaming for this game is really exciting as it puts both companies’ industry-leading experience into one game.
Chocolates is played across a 4×4 grid of reels with 2401 ways to win in the base game which can quickly increase up to a maximum of 65,536 ways to win as you unlock the bonus features. The gameplay is world-class, and you can expect to find free spins, wild symbols, expanded reels, and much more. If that’s not enough, how about the chance to win up to 30,000x your stake?! There’s so much to play for in this new game from BTG, read the rest of the review to find out the details.
Graphics and Theme
If you’re a fan of Swiss chocolate, the graphics will have you drooling over your screen. The backdrop to the reels is a grassy, mountain top setting, reminiscent of the swiss alps. You’ll see grassy fields and green shrubs either side of the reels with huge snowy mountains in the background which creates a relaxing view. The reels themselves are encased in a colourful wooden birdhouse with a cuckoo nest at the top. The wooden cogs either side of the reels start spinning with the reels every time you take your turn.
The soundtrack is just as calming as the graphics. You’ll hear birds singing, twittering and cuckooing which together creates a tranquil bird song that will keep you nice and relaxed as you hit spin. When you hit spin, you’ll hear the reels flicker until they stop one by one with an arcade noise running in the background. When you land a winning combo, you’ll hear a satisfying cha-ching noise.
The low paying symbols include the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. Four aces are worth 0.2x your stake. The high paying symbols are four wrapped chocolates. There’s a bar of green chocolate, a bar of blue chocolate, a bar of red chocolate and a bar of purple chocolate. The purple chocolate is the most valuable paying 1x your stake for a combo of four.
There is also a wild symbol and scatter symbol which unlocks exciting bonus features.
Golden ticket wild symbols
Regular wilds and golden ticket wilds can only appear on reels two to four and can substitute for any of the symbols except for the scatter. If you land a golden ticket wild and it is used as part of a winning combo, your win will be multiplied by 6x. This is an excellent opportunity to turbocharge your winnings.
Chocolate boxes will appear randomly on your screen. When the reels stop spinning the chocolate boxes will open and show up to four chocolates of the same colour. Every revealed chocolate adds to the total number of symbols on that reel. So, one reel could have a maximum of 16 symbols. This creates additional ways to win and increases your chances of landing cash prizes.
Free spins round
To trigger the free spins round, you need to land three or four scatters to unlock seven or ten free spins. Scatters do not appear during the free spins round so you cannot retrigger free spins. However, during the free spins round, all chocolate boxes become sticky and hold their reel positions when they land on your screen. If you fill up a reel full of boxes, you will be awarded an additional three free spins. Every scatter symbol that triggered the free spins round will automatically turn into a sticky chocolate box to get you started.
Game How to Play
Like with all online video slots, the first thing you need to do before playing is to decide on your betting value. In this game, you can start betting from £0.10 per spin, up to a maximum of £25 per spin. After that, you will need to hit spin manually or let the auto spin feature perform up to 100 spins for you. The game is played across a 4×4 grid of reels with an expanding feature that can create up to 65,536 ways to win. To win, you need to land symbols on adjacent reels from left to right. However, the scatter pays out no matter where it lands on your screen. The biggest wins in the game are made from landing chocolate boxes and multiplier wilds simultaneously.
