    How to Play

    Word Candy is a multi-stake (£1, £2, £3, £4 and £5) instant win scratch card game, with relative Jackpots from £20k to £100k.  The theme is 'chocolatey' using a crossword mechanic. A secondary wheel bonus is awarded when the player reveals three-of-a-kind ‘Cherries’.

    Set Your Stake
    Set the stake value by selecting one of the stake options shown on the introduction screen. Once the stake value is chosen, it is deducted from the current balance, located bottom left of the scratch card interface.

    Game Rules

    Once a game has started, the user picks 18 chocolate squares containing letters from the 27 available. The player can both use the ‘Auto Pick’ function which randomly picks 18 letters or scroll through the pick interface and select letters that way. As each chocolate square is selected, a letter is revealed, if that letter matches a letter contained within the crossword then this starts filling in the crossword.  Any letters found are activated and are shown to the player on the crossword grid.  The aim of the game is to fill in words on the crossword grid.  Each fully activated word will advance the player towards winning a cash prize.  Only 3+ words start to win cash, the values of each word threshold are displayed to the left of the crossword grid on a paytable.

    If the player fails to fill 3+ words during the 18 picks then it’s game over. In the event of a loss (no 3+ revealed words), an ‘UNLUCKY Better Luck Next Time’ pop-up is displayed briefly centrally on the scratch card interface.

    If the player finds 3+ words within the 18 picks then the value/s of those words is paid to the player. In the event of a win (once the 18 letter picks are complete), the total win value from all the revealed words are displayed briefly in a pop-up centrally on the scratch card interface. The total win value is also displayed in the ‘TOTAL WIN’ field located bottom centre of the scratch card interface.

    At the end of each game, after the win or no win panels have been displayed, the ‘default’ buttons return to allow the user to play again. Pressing the ‘BUY CARD’ button will start a new game.

    Occasionally the player will be presented by a ‘Golden Ticket’ when the player presses ‘Buy Card’. The ‘Golden Ticket’ is a guaranteed win at least x10 the card stake.  The ‘Golden Ticket’ will move to from the chocolate bar to the bottom of the screen to remind the player this is a high paying card, although the actual win value will vary

    Special Bonus Feature
    During the game play, if the player reveals a cherry it moves into a cherry pot at the bottom of the screen. Finding 3 cherries unlocks the bonus feature. When 3 cherries have been revealed the cherries glow and stay in-play until all 18 chocolate letter picks have been used. If there is a win then the ‘WIN’ meter will be credited and the cherries at the bottom activate and the screen will transform into the bonus screen.

    On the bonus screen there is a lollipop and a three tier cake.  On the cake there are three words containing 5, 6 and 7 letters. The player is prompted to press Spin three times, each of which activates the lollipop spinning. On every spin, letters will spill out and the lollipop will settle on three letters.  If there are any matching letters then these will fill the letters in the words on the cake tiers.  Any of the three filled-in words awards the bonus cash values displayed on each tier.

    Please note: The player can reveal three cherries without having achieved a win on the chocolate crossword.
