About Candy Cottage Slots

Featuring a chubby Hansel and Gretel looking to eat their fill of a witch’s house, Candy Cottage is a colourful slot from Rival Gaming that throws up a few surprises of its own.

The graphics are nothing special on Candy Cottage, and at times they can feel a little cluttered and a little too colourful. Visuals aside though, the basics of this game are solid, retuning as much as 750 times the line bet for symbols of both Hansel and Gretel, with others paying 250x and 400x. There is also an expanding wild feature which comes in the shape of the oven, and a wild symbol paying 2500x, which comes via the witch. Don’t get your hopes up though, because whilst this wild packs a punch, it only appears on the third reel, which severely limits its impact.


Bonus Feature

The biggest bonus round here in terms of return is the free spins round, which is unlocked when you get three or more of the gingerbread house symbols. You will unlock upwards of 10 free spins with this round, all of which come with a 3x multiplier attached. The base game is fairly generous, so these spins certainly come in handy and on average you should be looking at a return of at least 20x per round, although this can be a lot less on some occasions and a lot more on others.

There is also a bonus round, but this is very simple and the return that it generates is usually very disappointing, certainly when compared to the free spins round. This bonus round is unlocked when you get three or more of the cage symbols, and the mini-game it triggers sends you right back into the Hansel and Gretel story, picking up when the intro cutscene left off. We all know how that one ended though, so don’t get too attached to them.

Summary

Candy Cottage is not a advanced game. There are no 3D visuals here and the graphics also seem a little “off” in places, looking more akin to a 90’s MS Paint project than anything developed for the modern age. Still, putting those to one side, there are several high paying symbols, including the witch and the two children, and the free spins round is fantastic if you’re lucky enough to land it. The same can’t be said for the main bonus round though and that, combined with the aesthetics of the game, is why we can only score Candy Cottage a 7 out of 10. To be fair to Candy Cottage, this is not a new game and maybe if it was created today it would be a little more appealing, but even then, this is not that old and the technology was hardly out of reach when it was developed just 5 years ago.
