Oh to be a 16 again! Whether it’s sweet 16 and never been kissed or sweet 16 and never missed a kiss, Realtime Gaming’s Sweet 16 will appeal to players of all shapes and sizes, much like the superb collection of candy depicted on the slot’s reels.
16 was also the last age at which I was able to eat a box filled to overflowing with candy without getting fat. I’m sure most players would agree with me on that one! Candy was sweet, desirable and pure comfort-food back then, and it still is. Even players with no sweet tooth to speak of will enjoy Realtime Gaming’s Sweet 16 slot because ultimately, it has much more to offer than a colourful collection of sugary teats.
How Popular is Sweet 16 Slot in New Zealand?
New Zealanders are renowned for having some of the sweetest teeth in the world! We love just about anything even vaguely resembling a sweet treat. Also, our nation consists of fat people as well as of skinny people and really, nobody really cares what anyone else looks like. Our culture of acceptance of body image has had one nasty side effect on us as a people. We are now very much, by and large, a candy loving nation. We love candy of all sorts and shapes and flavours. We can’t help ourselves.
Which is most probably why Realtime’s Sweet 16 slot is such a hit among all of the Kiwi’s that I know who regularly play online slots. What better theme for a slot game than a collection of sweets, all right there for the taking.
My Experience with Sweet 16 Slot
I don’t think it’s necessary for me to at this point continue to describe just how much I love candy. The theme was what had captured by heart and my sweet tooth even before I had spun away at the game’s reels for the first time. For me, it was very much love at first sight.
But I digress. I really enjoyed the basic design of the various symbols, each created in their own special way. Everything imaginable makes an appearance on Sweet 16 slot’s reels. Gobstoppers, lollipops, gumdrops, jelly beans and chocolate; you name it, and it’s there. The pieces of candy are colourful and appear to be protruding from the reels.
Bonuses, Gameplay, Variance
The free spins feature awards up to 16 free spins, which I thought was quite clever indeed. The lollipop symbols is the game’s scatter, and three or more in any which position on the reels will trigger the free spins round.
The game also features a wild symbol, and one that is particularly eager to make a regular appearance on the reels in order to fulfill its substitution duties. The wild symbol is the Sweet 16 heart shaped logo symbol.
Gameplay is a smooth and seamless experience and everything just tends to flow naturally. All of my favourite keyboard shortcuts have been incorporated, including spinning by tapping the space bar.
My ultimate takeaway from playing this slot is that it features such a simple but superb theme. Candy themed slots are a big hit among players from New Zealand and I’m not in the least bit surprised as to why we would find these mouthwatering themes so very attractive. Especially since there’s real money to won with which real candy can be bought.
