The most important stats to keep in mind simply relate to how the bets work. Let’s explain.
As you probably know, the outcome of every round is determined by which segment of the wheel the pointer lands on after the wheel stops spinning. Much like competing games like Evolution Crazy Time, the wheel is divided into 54 segments.
Importantly, every segment of the wheel has an equally high chance of landing on the pointer in every spin. Specifically, it has a 1-in-54 chance, which translates to 1.85%.
As such, the most important Sweet Bonanza Candyland stats answer the question – how likely is a certain bet to win? And you can find the answer quite easily.
Simply take the number of segments relating to that particular bet and multiply it by 1.85%.
For example, the number 5 with a 5:1 payout covers 7 segments of the wheel. In every round, the probability of winning this bet is:
7 x 1.85 = 12.95%
You can calculate all Sweet Bonanza Candyland bet statistics and probabilities using this simple equation.
Sweet Bonanza Candyland RTP
Return to player (RTP), or expected value, is a crucial term to understand while playing live casino games. Basically, it tells you how much of every bet you can expect to make while playing.
According to official data from Pragmatic Play, Sweet Bonanza Candyland RTP is 96.95% at the highest. However, this number does not apply to all bets in the game. In fact, it’s merely the highest possible value, while the lowest is 91.59%.
As you can see, that’s a significant difference. Unfortunately, though, Pragmatic does not specify which bets have which RTP rates. Due to how live casino game shows like this one work, we know for a fact that different bets in Sweet Bonanza Candyland have different RTP values. We just don’t know what those values are.
We can make a few assumptions based on Money Wheel game strategies, though.
- The safest, simplest bets generally have the highest RTP. For instance, the maximum 96.95% RTP probably applies to bets like 1. Also, compared to games like Crazy Time, the RTP for wagers 1 and 2 is stronger because the bets cover more segments but pay the same.
- Playtech Adventures Beyond Wonderland has a 2:1 bet covering 15 out of 54 segments, just like here. Its RTP is 96.95%, marking it as an optimal bet in Sweet Bonanza Candyland.
- The 5 bet covers 7 segments with a 5:1 payout, which is identical to some similar games. We can conclude that the RTP for this bet is 95.78%.
- The highly volatile bonus bets, unfortunately, have the lowest RTP. This doesn’t really surprise us, but it’s disappointing because they’re the most fun.
What About the Sugar Bomb?
The sugar bomb does not work like the other bets. It is an optional bet you can switch on or off. If you turn it on, you pay an additional 25% fee on all of your bets. If the wheel then lands on the Sugar Bomb, the wheel will spin again with a multiplier of between 2x and 10x applied to any subsequent bet winnings.
Importantly, you can’t bet on only the Sugar Bomb. It has to combine with another winning bet in the following spin.
More importantly, is the Sugar Bomb in Sweet Bonanza Candyland worth it?
To be frank, our assumption is that keeping this option on will decrease the overall RTP for all bets. We don’t have any maths to back that up, though, so we won’t claim anything for certain.
We can use common sense, though. The chances of you winning both the Sugar Bomb and one subsequent bet are very small, even in the case of ‘safe’ options such as 1. On the flip side, 25% is a fairly big increase in the stake. The worst part about this is that it decreases the value of all of your bets, even though the Bomb has only 5.55% of hitting.
Also, the maximum payout in Sweet Bonanza Candyland is fixed at 20,000x or $500,000. This is true regardless of whether you’re receiving Sugar Bomb multipliers or not. In other words – the maximum win remains the same even though your stake is increased substantially. It’s easier to get to such large amounts with the Bomb, of course, but all of that is still a huge downside.
Sweet Bonanza Candyland Stats Table
We’ve summed up all of this info in this handy table. We chose not to include bet RTP because:
- We don’t have RTP data for all the bets in Sweet Bonanza Candyland
- The RTP values we do have were extrapolated from other games and are not necessarily true in this case
|up to 20,000x
|up to 20,000x
|up to 20,000x
|2x – 10x
Note that the Sugar Bomb can trigger multiple times, essentially doubling itself every time that happens.
Sweet Bonanza Candyland Trackers
Sweet Bonanza Candyland trackers are web apps that simply track the results of rounds of the game as they are played through.
Now you must be thinking – but doesn’t the game itself have a built-in feature that essentially does the same?
Yes – yes it does. Some third-party Sweet Bonanza Candyland stat trackers may have a longer memory than the one Pragmatic included. Others also track how many rounds a certain result hasn’t occurred (such as a bonus round) and compare the theoretical and actual hit frequency of wheel segments.
They can be valuable as an insight into the game’s probabilities. However, in the long run, they won’t do much else than confirm the Sweet Bonanza Candyland statistics we outlined above.
Can You Predict Results in Sweet Bonanza Candyland?
The problem begins when some of these services claim that these results can be used to predict the outcome of future rounds.
For example, some may claim that a bonus round is “due” because it hasn’t appeared for X number of rounds. Others may claim that a result is less probable because it recently appeared, or appeared several times in quick succession. That’s simply not true.
The probability of any outcome in Sweet Bonanza Candyland is the same in every spin, regardless of previous or future rounds. To reiterate, one segment has a 1.85% chance of hitting in every single round.
Claiming otherwise is a common gambling myth called the Gambler’s Fallacy. Don’t get sucked into it.
