LolliPop is a candy themed online video slot from Avatar UX that’s played on a five reel, three row grid. An explosion of pink and purple sits behind the reels alongside jars of sweets as if in a sweet shop. A synthetic but catchy tune plays merrily while you spin. Avatar UX are not the first slot developer to take on the candy theme, IGT did the same with Candy Bars.
There are ten regular symbols in this game. The four lowest paying of these include a purple jelly bean, a blue gummy, pink chews and an orange sweet. Then we have the higher paying gummy bears, cakes, muffins, hearts, stars and candy canes, the last of which can pay 4 X for five in a payline. LolliPops does not use wilds, but there is a free spins scatter which has a lollipop on it and is the tasty treat that unlocks the free spins bonus round.
Because this is a PopWins slot, when winning symbols hit, they pop off of the screen and are replaced by new symbols on the same vertical reels. Each successful win increases the number of possible combinations on the following spin. All reels on a PopWins slot can expand up to a maximum height of seven symbols. Initially, you will have five reels and 486 ways to win, but because of the PopWins mechanic, the number of win ways can reach 33,614.

How To Play LolliPop
How to Set Your Stake

LolliPop Bonus Features
When you land a winning combination of at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from either the left or right, the StickyPop feature will be triggered. The winning symbols plus those that match them will disappear while all other positions remain in view. This pattern repeats until there are no new winning combinations made. Winning symbols will also expand by one position up to a maximum of five high in the base game to increase the number of ways to win. In addition, each winning symbol will create two empty positions in its place for new symbols to move into.
When a reel reaches its maximum height in the base game, a 2 X win multiplier is awarded for the first reel which increases by one for each additional extended reel. When the respins are over, the final winning total is increased by the win multiplier.
The free spins bonus feature is triggered in the game when you land three, four or five scatters. Before the round gets underway, you will be presented with a gamble option. This is played on a gamble wheel and can only be done twice. Be warned though, losing means you lose your free spins. However, should you win and increase your number of rows then it’s very much game on.
The bonus round starts on empty set of reels where only scatter reward symbols or hearts will appear. Scatter rewards land with a cash value displayed on them, while hearts add up to two more free spins. Both have the ability to lock to the reels when they land, and scatters add one position to their reel up to seven rows high. Landing the right combination of scatter reward symbols upgrades them to the next value and when a reel reaches its full height, any scatters on it are doubled in value. Expanded reels will not reset between free spins.
21.co.uk Review Of LolliPop
The candy coated action in LolliPop might seem a little sickly sweet but if you have enjoyed previous PopWins slots then you are bound to like this one too. Designers Avatar UX have added free spins which represent something new for PopWins.
