Sugar Monster Slot Review
Are you looking for a sweet game diversion with toothsome features? If yes, then you will be absolutely satisfied by the Sugar Monster video slot, which is highly rich in tasty cakes and lucrative features, including tumble feature, lucky Sugar Monster Wild, free spins, and, at last, multipliers up to x100.
Besides elaborated bonus feature mechanics, there is also definitely worth mentioning visual & music compounds, which make playing this game an easy-to-enjoy and engaging process. There are a lot of perfect-looking animations that, too, add some delightful freshness to the gameplay decoration.
Since this is another High-volatility video slot, it tends to make large cash prizes but mostly rarely. On the other hand, they are really worth waiting for. There are no pay lines here because of the Scatter Pays feature integrated.

Sugar Monster Bonus Features
There are a few lucrative features, which we are glad to present to you in more detail. Among them are special symbols, free spins, multipliers, and so on. Let’s discuss them all one by one.
First, we want to highlight that traditional pay lines are absent here. So, all you need to get a prize is at least 12 symbols of the same type on the screen when the spin ends. The win amount corresponds with the current number of pics in the winning combination. The maximum cash prize is granted for 20 identical pictures on the reels.
The tumble feature is the next one that needs to mention the hallmark of Sugar Monster. It's easy to explain since there is nothing more in it than just disappearing all the winning symbols from the screen. Their place, in turn, takes those above. New ones are immediately falling down the reels, filling the playfield up again. The cascading triggerings amount isn't limited and depends only on the quantity of those landed winning combinations.
It is the only special symbol in this slot machine that reveals Sugar Monster just after landing on the playfield. The last one eats all the sweet symbols from the winning combinations and substitutes for all the payable pics. It is allowed to hit just one Wild on the screen.
Two other bonus features tied to the Sugar Monster are multipliers and FS round activating. The first ones are produced periodically by Sugar Monster, increasing the overall win per single spin. There is also a right-located 4-level scale, which triggers free spins when filled up. Every Cascade feature activated within a single spin round makes the FS scale one more. But every new spin starting resets it to the initial state. Be aware — that FS scale is working for the bonus game triggering only when Sugar Monster is on the reels.
As we said, those are randomly spitted out by the Sugar Monster just after it hungrily devours all the winning symbols. There could be up to 3 of them at a time. Within the base game, they are summarized by the end of the spin to multiply the overall cash prize. During the free spins, all multipliers are summarized, too, but this time, its amount doesn't reset, as in the base game, but increases all the time until the FS round ends, multiplying wins by the current value of the resulting multiplier. Single multipliers can take one of those values: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, 100x.
Free Spins Round
When the FS scale is filled up, 10 free spins are unlocked. To fill the scale out, you need to fulfill one strict condition. Sugar Monster has to take part in at least four consecutive cascade triggers within a single base game spin round, greedily devouring all sweet symbols of winning combinations. Under similar circumstances, but during the bonus game, there are 3 extra free spins that you will surely get. Another distinction is in the Sugar Monster, which gets 2x2 size and sticks right in the middle of the playfield.
Buy Free Spins
The last feature is quite a simple one. It lets you rather than wait for free spins to buy them. That will cost you x80 to the current stake. Also, there is an advantageous offer to purchase the guaranteed Sugar Monster revealing during the next spin. That pleasure is much cheaper — just x3 of your bet.
Our Experience Playing Sugar Monster
But what about real playing experience? We have had some, making 300 spins with €200 on the balance (€1 per spin). So, let us share it with you.
The first win happened already on the fourth spin, making us €0,8. After that, there were wins, ranging from €0,3 to €8. Overall number of those during the first 100 spins amounted to 39. Free spins within the first third of our playing are never triggered. Wilds are landing in a quite often manner. During these spins, we saw 27 of them. Cotton multipliers weren’t such frequent visitors on the playfield since they are standardly produced by the Sugar Monster only after munching him sweets and, sadly, not that every time. So, there were just four times when we took advantage of their appearing on the reels. But every single time, that was a pair of them. The highest sum of them was x10, which helped us earn the most valuable cash prize of this gaming part of €8. Generally, the most profit base wins happened due to the multipliers appearing on the playing field. Up to now, those were €7 and €8. The final game balance at the end of the first 100 spins was €143.3.
One of the most generous base rounds of the second hundred spins happened already on the 9th spin — during it, there were five consecutive wins, which brought us €6 per single spin. The total number of wins we got during these 100 spins amounted to 58 — even more than within the previous hundred spins. Wilds, too, have appeared more frequently (31 times) and produced 16 multipliers, 6 of which were triple. During the base game, the minimum win amounted to just €0.4, while the maximum — to €12 thanks to the x10 multiplier. What was the best — at last, triggered the FS round, which brought us €54.5. Also, there were as many as two heartbreaking incidents when we failed to launch one more FS game for lack of one last (4th) cascade. One of them happened during the bonus game. As a result, the eventual balance was €172.2.
So, all our hopes for making at least something above our initial money were on the last 100 spins. This time, the most impressive cascading sequence happened on the 69th spin, which presented us with five consecutive cascades, which, along with the multiplier of x2, gave us €7.8. Also, that was our last FS triggering in this game session due to the completely filled-up upstairs scale. Free spins earned us a total €64.2, which resulted in the best balance value of all time playing — €223.3. During those 100 final spins, we got 58 wins, the most impressive of which within the base game was €16.2 (with x9 multiplier), €12.6 (with x6 multiplier), and €8. Also, there were 26 Wilds and 12 multipliers, 6 of which turned pairs. Multiplier triples never landed this time. The highest base game multiplier was x9 (X3 + x6). Also, we have had two other almost FS triggers when we lacked just one last cascade to start the bonus game. The final balance was €200.8. Despite almost nothing earned, we lost anything, too. The final statistic for 300 spins is just like that:
Sugar Monster Verdict
The final verdict about this gambling game is mostly complimented since based on its overall good-quality performance, including graphics & sounds, as well as on a variety of proposed abilities of prizes issuing and their amount increasing. Moreover, although сhosen for this video slot theme isn’t that unique, its realization looks original and fresh.
Despite Scatter's absence, Sugar Monster Wild successfully does the job on his own, getting pleasure not only from eating cakes and candies but also from substituting symbols for the sake of extra wins, producing multipliers, and beginning free spins. As of our practice experience, it lands on the reels quite often, even without needing to use the Buy feature to do this. As a result, that also increases the chances of FS round triggerings. Up to 3 multipliers, every one of which can be up to x100, also is one of the brightest advantages of this slot, especially when it comes to the bonus game with its accumulated value multiplier.
The biggest shortcoming of the Sugar Monster video slot is not that generous minimal payouts, especially for the low-price symbol combinations. Not rarely prizes don't repay even the bet amount per spin. As a result, long waits for free spins could greatly decrease your game balance. Another disadvantage is the wide range of slot RTP for different game versions. To easily bypass that issue, make sure you are playing the best one with the highest value. The last not-so-big con is that when Sugar Monster eats two different winning symbol combinations that fell on the reels simultaneously, that elevates the FS scale only one more level, but not two, as if those land in sequence. In our mind, it would be fair to count every single cascade, no matter if they happened one at once or in turn. That guaranteed more FS triggers, even without any other changes in the game.
