Sweet 27 is a game which seems inspired by the world of sweets, yet on its reels you’re going to notice mostly fruits that have a little bit of extra sweetness added to them, in the form of toppings. This is one of the more modern looking classic slots that you will see these days, and the graphics are excellent if you compare them with any other game in its category. This is also a game that was released by Play N Go. The game’s title refers to the theme and to the layout of the slot. You are getting 27 ways to win, through a setup with 3x3 reels. It’s a classic looking game, but the features consist of things like wilds, rolling wilds and free spins, things that you will often miss even in modern slots. The jackpot for Sweet 27 will get to a value of $500.
One of the things that you will find unusual about Sweet 27 is the way the bets are handled. With 27 ways to win to cover, the slot appears to give you 10 actual lines to use for your wagers. You have a betting range with predetermined total bets, which start at $0.10 and can go as high as $100. Placing a bet is easy enough, since you have bet values to click on at the bottom. Use the arrows on the sides, to reach bets that are higher or lower than those currently visible (you see five out of fifteen possible bet value at any one time).
Sweet 27 has a very sweet looking theme indeed, especially if you focus on the background graphics, and not on the actual symbols that appear on the reels. The sweet part you can see in the piles of candy shown in the background, all of it pink by the looks of it, while huge candy canes and lollipops are sticking out of them. The three reels of this classic slot machine are in the middle, and they have a border surrounding them that looks a bit like that of a 50s jukebox. The slot actually seems to borrow a little from that 50s retro style, and it helps make it even more attractive. When it comes to actual symbols that we’re offered, they went with fruits mostly, but they chose to add various toppings on them, so they do look like deserts. The images that you are shown as symbols are those of the Bar logo, the candy striped 7, blueberries, strawberries, orange slices and cherries. The feature symbol has the logo of the wild, placed against a round piece of candy. There is no question about it, this is one of the more attractive 3 reel slot machines that you will find anywhere. Play N Go did a superb job with the design, even though they relied solely on classic icons for the regular symbols.
First of all, you should keep in mind that the combinations that you form in Sweet 27 are through its 27 ways to win, not through regular lines. As long as you have three matching symbols on the three reels, you will get paid that round. There is only one symbol with an extra ability, a feature, and it is the wild that does it for this slot. These wild symbols can be combined with any regulars, to form some new combination, but they can also pay you directly, up to $500. If the wild happens to appear on reel 3, then it will give you 2 free spins, during which it will roll to the next reel, one position during each round. If you end up landing an extra wild on the 3rd reel at this point, then you will reset the number of free spins to 2 rounds. You will get 1 or 2 extra free spins basically, along with an increased multiplier. The highest multiplier that you can get is 3x, and that’s if you have wilds appear in that reel twice, retriggering the feature the same number of times. Apparently, you can retrigger this feature as many as 9 times.
For the jackpot of Sweet 27, you are going to get at most $500 during the regular spins, and as much as $1,500 during the free ones, provided that the multiplier has gone to the maximum value of 3x. The average RTP for Sweet 27 is announced as being over 96%, which is a very good number of a classic title.
Fans of classic slot machines should definitely give this one a go, and the players that usually prefer modern titles will find that it might appeal to them just as easily.
