Online slot of the year

Winner: Pragmatic Play – Sugar Rush

Sugar Rush has quickly established itself as a leading slot in Pragmatic Play’s game arsenal, becoming a staple for operators and players alike.  

The concept behind the game was to delight the audience with fast-paced gameplay, in which with just one spin, the player can discover a rich slot packed with huge win potential through its increasing multipliers that appear during cascading wins.  

The high volatility, cluster-pays title features a 7x7 grid filled with sugary icons, with five or more matching symbols required to build a winning cluster. These must be connected to each other in either a horizontal or vertical direction, with a max win potential of 5,000x. 

Wins also trigger the tumble feature, with certain areas of the reels marked as Multiplier Spots, which ensures that when a winning symbol explodes, it leaves a wrapper in its position on the grid.  

When another symbol explodes on the reels in the same spot as the wrapper, a multiplier is added, with the value doubling each time another explodes in its place until the maximum multiplier worth 128x the bet is reached. This huge multiplier potential is a key feature of Sugar Rush, with multiple cascading wins quickly turning one spin into one of staggering possibilities.  

Landing three or more scatters unlocks the Free Spins bonus round, awarding several free spins depending on how many scatters landed to trigger the feature.  

During this mode, the multipliers that land on successful scatters remain sticky on the reels, ensuring that huge wins can occur with every single spin as the sticky multipliers continue to rise, further driving player engagement as players can see their chances of incredible rewards fill the reels. The game has continued to prove to be a true player favourite, with its success culminating in an award at the recently held Global Gaming Awards London.
