2018 was the year Big Time Gaming released their honey glazed and sticky-fingered slot called Donuts. It comes with sweeteners including free spins with win multiplier, wilds and the Donut Boxes feature for the chance of up to 20,000x bet!
Homer Simpson Reference?
Donuts has an unmistakable simple charm with a 4×4 (reels/rows) playing area atop a black asphalt road winding its way through a desert landscape. We could not help but be reminded of another brilliant slot from this developer called Bonanza.
Seemingly improper among the huge rocks is a roadside donut shop called ‘321 DONUTS’ with a giant pink sprinkled donut on its roof. Although we’ll never know for sure, this donut might be a playful reference to Homer from the Simpsons who can be found eating ones just like it! The 4 top-paying symbols are what else but doughnuts with a purple, red, blue, and green glaze followed by 6, ace down to 9 playing card numbers/letters. The slot enjoys standard sound effects which include some that amuse and others that build suspense.
The wild symbol looks like a rainbow cake sliced down the middle. It appears on reels 2-4 and substitutes for all the other regular symbols.
During play, donut boxes may open to present up to 4 donut symbols or wilds with 2x-4x multipliers.
Bonus Round & Free Spins
The gold donut scatter appearing in sets of 3 or 4 trigger the Bonus Round followed by 12 or 20 free spins, respectively. During the bonus round, each of the 16 spaces become independent reels displaying either a blank space or a gold donut. A timer, beginning at 3, counts down until it reaches 0 but resets to 3 when a gold donut appears. These doughnuts become sticky until the end of the feature, increasing the multiplier by 1x-50x. The multiplier will be applied to wins during the free games.
The free spins start only after the bonus round has ended. Here, 2-4 gold donut scatters will re-trigger the bonus round awarding a further 10, 20 or 30 free spins, respectively.
Donuts: Game Summary
Donuts slot has an RTP of 96.52% with bets of 0.05 to 5. The game is optimised for play on tablet/smartphone and desktop platforms, so you can play on the move with an Android/iOS device or from home on your Windows OS.
Donuts slot game represents another high volatility slot from BTG, which has become known for them. The game is rich in features, but the bonus round plus free spins have a low drop rate. It’s a pity because it’s here that you’ll likely do the most damage if you manage to trigger them, which we never managed to do after a few hundred spins. Try as we did, our best pay-out was 46x bet in the main game.
Still, a little patience with this 2,401 ways to win slot may go a long way. Satisfy more than just your sweet tooth by visiting a casino today!
