Focus on Don’t Eat the Candy slot

NetEnt’s Don’t Eat the Candy suits the season’s theme as the reels spin in a high volatility game with 96.13% RTP on five reels and three rows—or four rows if you manage to trigger the Reel Expansion feature. The symbols may match on 25 winning lines, which may expand to 50 lines if the moon’s shadows cast success on your endeavours. If the spirit of Halloween, in the form of lost souls, smiles on you, your maximum win multiplier may reach a staggering 3,110.6x. Are you ready to befriend the ghosts of the dusk?

Betting Rules

As the Pumpkin’s eyes go ablaze, you can bet with specific amounts of 0.10 to 150 to release dark action on the reels—and guaranteed goosebumps!

NetEnt’s Sticky Win™ debuts in this borderline cutesy and scary game, keeping the winning symbols in place for a respin to increase your potential to win. As the reels spin, the wild symbol lurks behind specific reels to replace paying symbols. The Pumpkin special symbol may randomly haunt the reels for bone-chilling features, such as multipliers, expanded reels, and symbol upgrades. During Free Spins, the special Pumpkin symbol is ready to roll berserk. Gather your courage and face the monstrous symbols.

Sticky Win™

Sticky Win™ is a brand new NetEnt respin mechanic, where at least three symbols on a winning line, or at least three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, activate this innovation. The symbols lock into their places on the reels and a respin starts, potentially increasing your winning chances.

If new symbols are added to the winning lines or new scatters arrive during the respin, they are locked with the already present symbols, and yet another respin triggers. You may continue this mind-bending cascade until the whole gaming grid fills with winning symbols—or until you stop landing them. 

Once respins end, all wins pay out.


Wild symbols substitute for all paying symbols, bar the scatters. The wilds can land on Reels 2, 3, and 4.  

Pumpkin Features

When the Pumpkin special symbol randomly lands anywhere on the reels, it activates one of the three spine-bending features. During the main game, these features remain active for only the spin when they are activated.

  • The Multiplier triggers a global multiplier of 2x.
  • The Reels Expand grows the number of rows from three to four, resulting in a gaming grid of five reels and four rows for the spin.
  • The Replace Symbol randomly selects low-win symbols and upgrades them with higher-win peers.

Free Spins

At least five howling ghost scatters trigger the Free Spins and pay out 3x of the original stake. In the bonus round, you receive ten free spins, while each additional scatter to the minimum five adds three more free spins to the tally. No retriggers can happen during Free Spins.

The Pumpkin Features become ferocious in Free Spins. They randomly activate and follow the sequence of Multiplier, Reels Expand, and Replace Symbols. The first Pumpkin brings a global multiplier of 2x, and the second Pumpkin expands the gaming grid from 5×3 to 5×4. Furthermore, each time the Pumpkin symbol appears, one of the low-win symbols is replaced with the next one in line based on its payout value.

All the triggered features remain active for every spin during the entire Free Spins session.

Theme and Symbols

Ghouls and playfully evil spirits hold the reels in a tight embrace as the dark dusk descends with mist on the gaming grid.

The low-win symbols are foul-looking candies: a blue jellybean, a purple candy, a red and white cream candy, a red-white-blue-yellow spiral candy, and the smudgy candy corn. Don’t eat them!

The high-win symbols freeze the blood in your veins: a rotten apple inhabited by an angry worm, a bottle of poison-soaked eyeball, a patch-work voodoo doll with a needle pierced in their hand, and a skull holding a burning candle.

The wild is a lantern, fire glowing through a ‘W’-shaped window as stray souls flee from the cracks.

A triad of howling ghosts represents the Free Spins Scatter.

The special symbol is an evil-smiling Pumpkin, a scary gourd-head with fire-blazing eyes.


No familiarity with the occult can guarantee wins in NetEnt’s Don’t Eat the Candy, just like in our other video slots. However, the new NetEnt Sticky Win™ mechanic and the grinning Pumpkin’s thrilling features shake up the gameplay for a foreboding night of fun.
NetEnt’s Don’t Eat the Candy allows you to go trick-or-treating for free. However, you may decide to bet an odd cent every now and then to give this high volatility 96.13% RTP game a daring spin.
