Sugar Trail – Diabetes-Inducing Video Slot
With a theme more child-friendly than a Barney the Dinosaur-led painting class, this candy-bashing health warning of a slot hits you like a tonne of fluffy pillows. Only adults can indulge in this Care Bear incarnation, which makes you wonder at the thinking behind it. But, nevertheless, developer Quickspin has recently been stocking the virtual shelves of online casinos far and wide with this game, which makes it ripe for a review. Play the free demo version below to add a drop of context.

Real Money Casinos Where You Can Play Sugar Trail
An Overview of the Rules and Features
Sugar Trail follows the path set by the recent explosion of candy-themed extravaganzas, a theme dictated by the obscenely successful match-three mobile game, Candy Crush. It was a money-making machine that this slot tries to emulate as closely as possible while still remaining a slot machine. The game has five-reels and each rotates symbols adorned by gummy bears, wine gums, toffees and the bastard child of confectionary, liquorice.
There are free spins to be had. These are triggered by three pink King Gummy Bear scatter symbols, which appear on the first three reels only. More free spins can be gained by getting the +1 Spin symbol during free spins. There’s also a Flying Wild to contend with. It floats around willy-nilly, without a care in the world between each spin, its random settling point determining your fate. The green Queen Gummy Bear scatters will trigger the Respins bonus, if you get three of her. Locked Wild symbols will stay in place for the duration of the respins. Get three of the blue Prince Gummy Bear symbols and you get a shot at the Sugar Cash Bonus, which awards cash and multipliers. This slot features forty fixed paylines paying from left to right.

Conclusion – As Simple As ‘Hari-no’
We’re not sure how slots with these types of themes navigate the regulatory framework, but we suppose it might have something to do with adults also liking confectionery. With that resolved, let’s look at the overall picture. Sugar Trail’s graphics are neat and tidy. The sound is playful and annoying, like an uncle who won’t put away his keyboard at Christmas time while you are trying to play board games; he’s learning a new tune but gets stuck repeating the first few notes. Gameplay is fast and fluid, comparable to the best slots on the market. The mixture of bonus features including free spins, respins and multipliers keeps things interesting, and payouts are regular enough to keep you entertained. All things considered, it’s worth a punt. We just wish they’d be more socially responsible and base their games on salad from now on. Is that too controversial? Let us know using the form below.
