About Chocolates Slot
Chocolates from Big Time Gaming is another food-related slot in a similar style to Donuts – just a bite more sophisticated. Both have the 4×4 grid layout and tasty symbols, but instead of the basic desert landscape background, Chocolates transports players to a sunny alpine scene where a wooden cuckoo clock takes centre stage.
You’ll find a range of chocs on the reels, mostly pyramid-style like the Swiss Toblerone, which goes rather nicely with the whole Alps vibe. During the game, the background scene changes to nightfall if you trigger the Free Spins round, while other fun elements include the clock characters appearing along the bottom of the reels on big wins.
Chocolates has an RTP of 96.6%, a 10p minimum bet and a high variance slot rating. This means although low rollers can enjoy a low-cost spin, it’s higher rollers who are best suited to the riskier play offered by this sweet treat. You’re likely to see some long lean spells, although when the rewards do roll in, they could give a sugary high with a max payout of 65,536x stake.
Symbols and Paytable
The 4×4 grid is filled with pyramid-shaped chocolates in colourful wrappers, including magenta, turquoise, emerald green, and red polka dot. The magenta chocolate pays the most with 1x your bet for 4 matches, while the red polka dot, turquoise and green chocolates pay up to 0.5x, 0.4x and 0.3x your bet respectively. Although these base rewards are disappointing, the bonus features can boost them considerably.
Other symbols in this game include the Wild chocolate boxes with BTG stamped on the top, and the golden ticket Wild, which is a bar of chocolate with rainbow lettering. There is also a Scatter symbol, which is the clock face with rotating hands. All these symbols award their own bonus features.
On any big win you’ll see little characters appear in the doors at the bottom of the cuckoo clock to help celebrate. There’s a lady with a cauldron, a gent with a wheelbarrow and children on a seesaw. Along with the cuckoo, these quirks all add to the charm of Chocolates.
Gameplay and Features
Golden Ticket Wild
The golden ticket Wild appears on reels 2 to 4 and if it forms part of a winning combination, it awards a 6x Multiplier. If you manage to find 3 of these together, you’ll receive a whopping 216x Multiplier.
Chocolate Box Wild
The Wild chocolate box with BTG stamped on top is another Wild. It can open to reveal up to 4 premium chocolate symbols. Spinning these symbols also increases the win ways. For example, two chocolate boxes containing 4 symbols each will give another 8 ways to win.
Scattered Clock Hands
The clock face with the rotating hands is the Scatter. If you land 3 or 4 of these, you can trigger 7 or 10 Free Spins. The Scatters can turn into Sticky Boxes and lock into place for the duration of the Free Spins round. If you manage to add a reel of Sticky Boxes, you’ll receive another 3 Free Spins. They can also boost your pay ways with up to 65,656 ways to win.
Chocolates is a cheerful slot with its attractive wooden cuckoo clock design, pleasant alpine backdrop and colourful choco symbols. It’s very similar in style and gameplay to Donuts, but with extra features and added sophistication. Chocolates is highly volatile, much like its sweet dessert twin, which gives an exciting edge to the game. The base game can be uneventful, so you’re always looking for the bonus features to jazz it up. When the Wilds and Free Spins start it can get a bit crazy and this is certainly a great one for high volatility specialists. We like the dramatic changes in the win ways, while your payouts can also be boosted substantially by the Wild Multipliers. If you can handle the ups and downs of this sweet-toothed slot, it’s definitely one to try this autumn.
