Sugar Pop 2 Double Dipped Slots

We hope you’re in the mood for something sweet, because this game is bound to give you a sugar rush. If you’re a candy lover, this is as close as you’ll get to winning a trip to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Cut out the somewhat creepy parts and add to that the possibility of actually taking home a win or two yourself and this sweet sensation gets a sprinkle of chocolate on top of it all. Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped is played on a 7x7 playing field, with cluster wins instead of paylines. Rather than following a set payline, anytime four or more of the same icon are connected, they act as a win. It also incorporates rolling reels, which means that winning combinations disappear, and other icons drop to fill in their spot. With a lot of luck, you could chain a few wins this way. And if those two weren’t enough for your sweet tooth, there’s also a relatively simple progression system inside this Betsoft’s release. Yellow stars act as level up icons, and you can track your progress on the soda bottle to the right. Once you level up, you will unlock additional candies that can alter the way the game plays. And trust us, there are a whole lot of them.

How to Play

Visually, we quite like it. Bubbling, fizzy soda, clouds made out of cotton candy, and various hard candies all over the reels for your enjoyment. If you’re on a diet, chances are, this is a game you might want to skip. The user interface is also done in a relatively interesting manner, with pipelines attached to the side of the reels, allowing several elements to hang in the air, such as your level, and scores for a single level and the game as a whole, letting you keep track of how much you have won. Other things sit at the bottom where you expect them to be. On the gameplay side of things, Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped handles itself very well. The progression system is a lot more interesting than it lets on at first, and there are a lot of bonuses, which incentivises you to play more and more to unlock everything. Of course, we can’t help but feel like they’ve gone a bit too far with it. Somewhat naturally, levelling up slows as you reach higher levels, and unless you’re really lucky with the symbol drops, getting to level 29 seems like something you’d have to keep the game running for to ever reach. We like it as an idea, but we feel a small level squish wouldn’t be a bad idea.

Betting Options and Payout

You can play Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped for as little as $0.50 up to $250 per spin. There’s really not much you can do to boost your odds of winning beyond playing longer, which activates bonuses to help you score more wins. There are some bonuses which can also be beneficial, such as free spins and candy bombs. It offers gamblers a 96.42% RTP and its relatively safe to call it a medium to high variance title. The Betsoft’s release doesn’t shy away from being generous when it wants to be, just as much as it can be stingy after a big win.

Symbols and Extra Features

While we’d like to talk a lot about the icons, there are a whole lot of them and they all follow the core theme of being candy. The ordinary ones which you see plenty of aren’t that interesting, but ones you get from levelling up have a super cool design. Our favourite would undoubtedly be the Sweet Hammer and the Jelly Bean Cannon. Free spins symbols appear on the reels alongside regular symbols. Winning four in a cluster gets you five free spins, and for each additional free spin icon, you win two more free spins. So six free spin symbols are nine free spins, but seven give you eleven extra turns. Candy bombs appear when you have a winning cluster of five or more symbols. It blows up in an area around the bomb, and the radius increases with the size of the winning combination up to a certain point. Alongside this, it will also leave a Candy Wild that’s left behind after the explosion.

Our Verdict

We came into it not knowing what to expect and ended up having a blast. We’re big fans of cluster pays and rolling reels, so it’s no surprise that we enjoyed our time with Sugar Pop 2: Double Dipped. If you want a sweet experience, look no further than this Betsoft’s release. Just be careful not to eat too many candies – it can’t be good for you.
