Sweet Alchemy 2 Info and Facts
Welcome to Candy's Land
Sweet Alchemy 2 is a grid pokie that takes place in a world made of all kinds of sweet treats. The game focuses on the antics of a character called Candy the Witch, and there's nothing that she likes better than using her magic to make mouthwateringly sweet treats.
The game starts as a 5x5 grid set in the middle of a 9x9 grid of chocolate blocks, and all of this is presented against a candy landscape background. Candy the Witch stands, spellbook in hand, to the right of the grid.
This is a cluster pays pokie, so you will win a prize when you get a cluster of four or more matching symbols in adjacent positions. The most symbols you get in a cluster, the more you will win.
Visuals in this game have a colourful anime style that will be familiar to any fan of candy-themed pokies even if you haven't played the original Sweet Alchemy. At the same time, the original soundtrack is full of magickal flourishes that really help to pull you into the game.
The symbols in Sweet Alchemy 2 are candies of various shapes and colours. These include a turquoise doughnut, a purple cone, a green crescent, a blue cube, a red macaroon, a pink drop, a red heart and a yellow star. If you're a fan of candy-themed games, then this game will be right up your alley.
We've said that the game starts as a 5x5 grid on a 9x9 grid of chocolate blocks. When you land a winning cluster, the number of symbols in that cluster will be checked and the same number of chocolate blocks will be removed to increase the playing field. A cascade will then occur and symbols will drop into the spaces that have been created.
The more cascades you get, the bigger the playing area becomes. Should you manage to clear all of the chocolate blocks, you will trigger the Free Spins feature.
In addition to the candy symbols mentioned earlier, you can also land two different types of wild symbols on the grid. These are referred to as Gobstopper Wilds and Striped Wilds, and each type has its own alchemical power, as follows:
When you manage to clear all of the chocolate blocks you will trigger a Free Spins feature. You will be given 4 free spins, to begin with, and two special mega symbols measuring 2x2 will be in play, making it easier to win.
If you manage to clear the chocolate blocks again, you will be awarded another 4 free spins and the mega symbols will increase in size to 3x3. Repeat the clearance again for another 4 spins and mega symbols measuring 4x4.
Sweet Alchemy 2 - RTP
Sweet Alchemy has a variable RTP of up to 96.20%. The maximum payout that you can win is 10,000 times your bet, which is substantially higher than the 3,000x boasted by the first Sweet Alchemy pokie.
Sweet Alchemy 2: Our Verdict
We waited for five years for this sequel, but boy, it was worth every minute. Sweet Alchemy 2 delivers everything that a fan of the original game could want, and more with fun bonus features.
We love the expanding grid mechanic, the enchanted candy landscape background and the new wild symbols. What we particularly like is that Sweet Alchemy 2 feels quite different to the first title, so there's still a reason for us to play both.
If you're a fan of sweet treats and alchemy, or simply the chance to win up to 10,000 times your bet, play Sweet Alchemy 2.
