The original Sweet Alchemy came out in 2018 and was quite popular among players. A lot of time has passed since then but Play’n GO just released the sequel and it’s a good one.
Providers can sometimes try to throw us off by giving sequels a different name, in an attempt to disguise the fact that it’s a sequel. Play’n GO on the other hand, doesn’t mess around like that and keeps things real by giving it the proper name – Sweet Alchemy 2.
Before you start playing, I recommend making sure your sweet tooth is taken care of or you will soon be off on a snack run to the nearest 7 Eleven. I’m serious when I say staring at the chocolate blocks for too long can make you start salivating and even go a bit cray-cray.
Brand New Look
I had to go back to the original game to see if Play’n GO used chocolate back then as well but they did not. It’s a completely upgraded and different look this time around and I do wonder why they decided to use this much of a chocolate reference.
Explosions All Around
I love the laser or flash effect when you line up winning combinations that include the striped Wild candy symbol. It will get rid of both a column and the row.
Paylines: Cluster Pays
Volatility: Very High
How to Get to the Bonus Round
Finishing an entire block of chocolate at home isn’t exactly a proud moment and it certainly doesn’t give you any type of reward or bonus. In Sweet Alchemy 2 on the other hand, cleaning house means you will be granted entrance to the Free Spin round.
Where Is the Rest of My Free Spins?
Destroying all the chocolate blocks will trigger 4 Free Spins. I was a bit surprised that there are only 4 spins as I was definitely expecting more of them. Disappointment strikes again!
Get Your Mega Symbols
With your Free Spins in hand, you can now look forward to Mega symbols entering the equation. Your mission doesn’t change and the goal is to get rid of all the chocolate once again. You will see the 2×2 Mega symbols in the mix and hopefully they can help you get the job done.
Step up Your Game and Get to the Next Level
When you once again clean house and remove all pieces of chocolate, you can look forward to the next step in your Free Spin adventure. Not only will you get another 4 Free Spins, your Mega symbols will also grow to 3×3.
If you can pull it off once more, you will get another 4 Free Spins (for a total of 12) and this time the Mega symbols will reach a size of 4×4.
Embarrassing Free Spin Results
Unfortunately I never got that far. As a matter of fact my own run ended so fast that I barely had time to realize what just happened. I mean, just look at that monstrous payout in the image above. I don’t see how that is supposed to help me get even a tiny Snickers or Mars bar.
Collect a Bonus
I didn’t experience this myself but there is a bonus feature. The way to get to it is by collecting certain symbols during your Free Spins. You can see which ones they are in the bottom right corner, below the witch or whatever she is supposed to be.
This will set you up in front of a bonus wheel of multipliers. With a bit of luck you can score a win multiplier of up to 25x.
Sweet Alchemy 2 – Not a Bad Sequel
We all know that sequels don’t have a good reputation and it’s far from guaranteed that they are better than the original. I’m prepared to say that Sweet Alchemy 2 is much better than the first version.
Sweet Alchemy 2 looks both fun and inviting and you will have a cute voice pushing you towards a great performance. I’m not fully sold on the features as it’s basically just the Free Spins, which only gives you 4 of them initially. With that said, it’s a pretty good game and I think it will attract some attention from players.
