Endorphina’s brilliant dev team brings you Sugar Glider. A five-reel, ten-payline sticky toffee treat, this fruit-inspired slot stars a fluffy ninja dude on a mission to protect the forest from large, less-than-pleasant mantis. Cosy up to our warrior for the chance to bag some greet wins and heaps of entertaining quirks.
How to play it
It’s a bright and colourful game, really giving off some good-time vibes. Here is a brief rundown from the developer on the main ways to get the very best from the slot:
In the upper left corner is the Credits bar which will help you increase or decrease coins size, and show the total balance left.
In the lower right corner is the Bet button which will help level up or down your total bet.
Auto is used to start the reels turning without interruption for the preset number of times.
Spin will set the reels in motion once you set your betting range, and you can use Turbo to get them spinning faster or slower.
Take Win and Take Risk buttons appear after you land a win, and they allow you to start the gamble feature.
What’s it got?
This game has a certain entertainment quality which negates it from needing to be too flash, and that’s a good job really, because features wise it’s lacking. Get the Sugar Glider and the Praying Mantis together on the reels and see the start of one of its only features. They’ll turn into Expanding Wilds, ultimately covering the adjacent reels.
In true Endorphina form there’s a gamble feature. You’ll get shown a card, with four further cards face down. This is the basis for the hi-lo game which follows: you choose one of the four hidden cards and hope it is higher than that shown. If it is you’ll win and have the choice to collect, if it is the same you can go again with that round, if it’s lower you go back to the base game.
Now, if fighting an evil praying mantis is your thing, or you have a thing for ninjas (the furrier and more cute the better) and you can’t really be fussed with bells and whistles features, then this is so your game.
Benefitting from a wide betting range, having a great Free Spins feature and having that wonderful nostalgic nod to the fruit machines that started this whole party off, we reckon this one’s a goer and heartily recommend.
