Sweet Bonanza Candyland is a Live Casino game that was released in 2021 by Pragmatic Play. It is based on the hugely popular online pokie that the same company released in 2019, and it takes place in an idyllic world where everything is made out of candy and other sweet treats.
However, instead of only spinning pokie reels as in the original game, in Sweet Bonanza Candyland Live you mostly spin a wheel to win prizes and participate in bonus features.

Sweet Bonanza Candyland Facts & Info
Presentation and Format
Sweet Bonanza Candyland Live is a wheel-based game that will be familiar to anyone who has played similar games like Evolution's Dream Catcher or Playtech's Adventures Beyond Wonderland. This game takes place against a deliciously sweet landscape background, and the presenters are dressed in suitably candy-style colours.
The wheel at the heart of the game has 54 segments. Each segment contains either a number or the name of a special feature, as follows:
Segments that show a number pay a cash prize to those who have bet on it. The cash prize is the number shown multiplied by the stake. Segments that show the name of a special feature will allows those who have bet on the feature to play it. We will discuss each of the features very shortly.
The aim of this game is to bet on which type of segment you think will be indicated as the winner on the next spin of the wheel. You can make bets by placing chips on a simple betting layout at the bottom of the screen, and you can make as few or as many bets as you like.
When the betting phase ends, the wheel will be spun. When it comes to rest, the segment indicated by the arrow in the 12 o'clock position will be declared the winner. If the segment shows a number, anyone who has bet on that number will win a cash prize equal to that number multiplied by their stake.
If the segment shows a special feature, the game proceeds straight to that feature. Those who have bet on it get to participate in it, while others enjoy it as spectators.
There are four special features that can be triggered in this game. Here's what's involved in each one:
When this feature hits, a random multiplier will be shown. This can be anything from 2x to 10x, and it will be followed by another spin of the reel, with all bets being carried over. Anyone who wins on the next spin will have their prize multiplied accordingly.
This feature game drops three candies into a vertical board that contains obstacles and multipliers. Your job is to pick one of the candies. As the candy you have selected drops through the board, it will collect multipliers as it goes. When it reaches the bottom of the board, its final value will be the one that is applied to your stake.
This feature spins a single-reel pokie to determine what prize will be given to those who have bet on it. Prizes can be a cash prize of 5, 10, or 25 times the stake, or the triggering of the Candy Drop or Sweet Spins features.
This is a massive pokie with six reels and five rows that fans of the original Sweet Bonanza game will love. You'll start with 10 free spins and more can be won by landing lollipop scatter symbols. A tumble feature makes it possible to win several times from a single spin, and Sugar Bombs are in play to add multiplier excitement to proceedings.
