Sugar Rush Xmas

by Pragmatic Play

Sugar Rush came to our screens back in June of 2022 with a fairly typical blast of sweetness and a clever Cluster Pays mechanic. Will Sugar Rush Xmas simply be a rehash of this saccharine-coated treat with a Santa hat on? Let's take a look at how this slot with free spins, multipliers and a top win of 5,000x pans out.

Sugar Rush Xmas Features

Features 

A large sugary chunk of the action comes thanks to the Cluster Pays winline mechanic. This means that a group of 5+ matching symbols can be recorded anywhere on the screen as long as they are touching horizontally or vertically. Naturally, the bigger the cluster, the bigger the payout!

Winning symbols are removed and are replaced by new ones. As this happens, a spot is left behind and if the next symbol creates part of a win on the same spot, then a multiplier is added to that space. This will continue doubling the multiplier with each subsequent win up until a maximum of x128.

There isn't an awful lot more to mention during the Base game and the next stage of the entertainment begins with 3+ Scatter symbols landing on the reels.

It's possible to acquire between three and seven Scatter symbols and this will reward you with up to 30 free spins. Unlike the Base game, spots and their multipliers will now stay in place for the duration regardless of another win happening straight away.

Sugar Rush Xmas - Multiplier Spots

Multiplier Spots

When a symbol is removed as part of a winning combo it leaves behind a spot. The next symbol to do the same, in the same sequence, will add a multiplier to that spot. This can continue up to x128.

Sugar Rush Xmas - Free Spins

Free Spins

Between three and seven Scatters earn you between 10 and 30 free spins. Spots and multipliers now stay in play between winning spins.

Sugar Rush Xmas Review

As Christmas comes around, the influx of festive slots intensifies and you can bet your bottom dollar that at least 50% of them will be reboots of an old game with a little bit of tinsel and the odd snowflake. It's nice when a developer goes above and beyond and creates a completely new Christmas-themed game, but that isn't the case this time.

Design

The symbols and everything else are pretty much carbon copies of the original game, except the word sugar now wears a Santa hat and there's a lot more snow to enjoy. Fairly typically, the theme tune now includes the mandatory sleigh bells that are working hard to put us in the festive spirit.

Gameplay

The Base game does include the potential to grab some decent wins thanks to the multipliers but having them reset between non-winning spins can make this journey feel a little arduous. Thankfully, this restriction is removed during the Bonus game and this helps to create bigger wins and a far more pleasant experience at the same time.

Win Potential

As with the original sugary offering, 5,000x is the top win available and a few trips to the Free Spins Bonus will be necessary to achieve this. Some players outside the UK will have access to buy directly into the bonus. The RTP is 96.50% at its maximum and the volatility is high.

My Verdict

The original Sugar Rush game didn't exactly tickle me pink but it did have a certain appeal for anyone who enjoys grid slots and clever multipliers. It's an odd theme that I've never fully understood but some players love it! Will Sugar Rush Xmas offer you anything that it couldn't before? No, but it's Christmas so why not give it a go?
