This slot features a collection of sweets spanning seven rows of seven reels. For some people, this is heaven; for others, it is hell, especially when you add Christmas bells.
Cluster pays instead of paylines make things more exciting. If you read our full Candy Clash slot review below, we will explain an intriguing set of bonus features triggered by different groups of symbols. Mancala Gaming has been pretty clever in designing Candy Clash.
Theme, graphics & soundtrack
Just the title ‘Candy Clash’ makes our teeth ache. It promises bright colours and sugary sweetness, the kind of thing we dreamed of when we were children and can finally indulge in as adults. It is certainly very different from the Tombstone RIP free slot.
Candy Clash varies from other slots with a similar theme by setting its reels full of sweets in a snow scene. Christmas lights, an animated 3D reindeer and a Santa hat perched on a button are vivid and lively against an otherwise muted background. You can even hear sleighbells ringing.
Candy Clash RTP and variance
When a slot adds potential one way, such as by increasing the ways to win, it often offsets it elsewhere, such as by lowering the RTP. This explains the 95 per cent RTP in the Candy Clash slot.
It is especially difficult when Mancala Gaming hasn’t revealed the variance. This is where free casino slots come into their own, with no real money on the line.
How to play Candy Clash
You might need to brush your teeth afterwards:
- In the top corner you will find the menu next to the volume and full-screen buttons. In the menu are links to the paytable, your game history, and language options.
- Free casino slots, like other online slots, require a bet to start. Adjust the amount using the plus and minus symbols.
- Alternatively, if you like risk and have the budget to back it up, click the max bet button.
- Just below the spin button is a turbo option to speed things up, although possibly by sacrificing some graphics quality.
- Click the spin button and the reels spin once. Hold it down and there are up to 100 automatic spins.
- Stay alert, whether you choose one spin or 100. Set win and loss limits, and stick to them. In this way, the game should stay fun. Take advantage of the timeout and self-exclusion functions if necessary.
Bet & win sizes
The bet range of this slot starts at 20.00 and ends at 4000.00, even when played amongst our free casino slots.
Most online slots without seven reels require you to match symbols from left to right. The Candy Clash online slot is different, with cluster pays awarding payouts for five symbols in any direction. The biggest prizes are for at least 25 symbols:
- Blue heart = 100.00
- Pink swirl = 140.00
- Stripey blue = 400.00
- Stripey pink = 500.00
- Orange pentagon, orange teardrop = 1,000.00
- Blue lollipop = 1,500.00
- Pink hexagon = 2,000.00
- Wild (need 49) = 2,000.00
Candy Clash bonus features
Some of these bonuses may seem familiar if you have experience in online slots. Others, such as symbols being split into different coloured groups, are highly original.
Before you start splitting your symbols into groups, see how they disappear after every winning spin. New symbols rush to fill the gaps, meaning you basically have a free respin.
To trigger the Group A feature, you need a cluster of light blue candy. This removes all the light blue candy symbols from the reels. Do the same with the dark blue candy, without any Group B cluster wins between. One of the remaining Group B symbols, either red or pink, will turn blue and expand to fill more spaces, potentially meaning a mega cluster win.
The Group B feature is triggered in a similar way, this time by finding and removing pink symbols and then red symbols. The randomly chosen symbol will be either orange, yellow, frozen pink, or a blue lollipop.
These are basically free spins, triggered by three scatter symbols. You will be awarded seven free drops, during which all scatters disappear. You will see five multipliers of 2x scattered across the reels, increasing the value of any combination they touch.
Candy Clash review: our verdict
If you don’t have a sweet tooth, you may find Candy Clash a little much, but we are always happy to see a slot break from the traditional 5x3 format. Cascading symbols are another always-welcome feature that is as fun to watch as it is to win, whilst the split into Group A and Group B features is interesting if a little complicated at first.

What is the RTP of Candy Clash?
If you go through the recently released Mancala Gaming slots, you will see that most, including Candy Clash, have an RTP set at 95 per cent. If you compare this with modern slots by other developers, which frequently pass the 96 per cent mark, this seems low; however, it is only a theoretical guideline.
What are Group A and Group B symbols in Candy Clash?
Group A symbols come in light and dark blue, Group B in red and pink. Collect them in the right order and remove them from the reels. One of the remaining symbols is then randomly selected to expand over multiple positions, which could lead to some pretty large cluster wins.
Does Candy Clash have a free spins round?
They may be called free drops, which is a reflection of how the reels move, but they are basically free spins. You win seven of them if you find three scatter symbols. The best thing is that the free drops round comes with additional multipliers spread across the reels, potentially doubling your wins or increasing them even more.
