Big Time Gaming satisfied our sweet tooth this week as its cocoa confectionary-themed title Chocolates claims our Slot of the Week.

The title, which was exclusive to Microgaming from October 12, made its general release yesterday with players now able to claim golden tickets, which offer a path to riches. 

Big Time Gaming CEO, Nik Robinson, said: “Chocolates is one of my favorite games yet and it’s got all the hallmarks of a hit. We work hard to make each release more engaging and exciting than the last, and fans will love this vibrant new offering.”

During the base game, Chocolate Boxes increase the player’s payline, with up to 65,536 during the free spins round. Boxes open to reveal up to four Chocolate symbols. 

Meanwhile, all Boxes become Sticky Boxes during the free spins and one or more triggering scatters turn into Sticky Boxes. Each reel with four Sticky symbols awards an additional three free spins and up to 12 extra free spins can be awarded in total.

Regular Wilds and Golden Ticket Wilds substitute for every symbol except Scatters and Boxes. A win is multiplied by six for each Golden Ticket Wild that substitutes within it.

Leon Thomas, commercial director at Microgaming, added: “Big Time Gaming’s slots are always fresh, innovative and popular with players, and we are delighted to collaborate with Nick and his team on this exclusive launch. 

“Chocolates is another great game from a company that keeps on delivering, and we look forward to treating our customers and their players with exclusive early access to this exciting, feature-rich title.”

Earlier this month, the title for its first ‘real-money experience’ when it was live-streamed, courtesy of 32Red, by slot streamer Hideous Slots, real name Will Barnes. 

Barnes was the first person to play the new title which he streamed exclusively to his Twitch and YouTube channels on October 12. 

Will Barnes at Hideous Slots, said: “I’ve been salivating over Chocolates since I saw the first pictures. I can’t wait to taste this Big Time Gaming confectionary with real money!”

Commenting on the collaboration with 32Red and Hideous Slots, Robinson noted: “We’re really pleased to be collaborating with 32Red for this sweet launch! Will Barnes is one the UK’s most up and coming streamers, combining slot play with “Little Britain” style comedy sketches, he’s likely to become one of the UK’s top slot streamers.”
