Donuts. Are these deep fat fried dough balls not the very best invention ever?
Who can resist such a delicious, colourful and sticky sweet treat? Not us, that’s for sure. The more donuts, the better. Preferably with sprinkles. Or filled with jam. Not there is ever anything wrong with a plain, sugared donut.
Big Time Gaming has once again released a stunner of a high variance slot with Donuts, that can make you an astounding amount of money.
How does the Donuts slot work?
Donuts is played with 4 reels with 4 rows of symbols. This is a configuration we haven’t seen very often.
There are no fixed paylines, but this slot operates with the win all ways mechanism. There are 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 = 256 ways to win.
The minimum bet is only $€ 0.05, while the maximum bet is capped at $€ 10, per spin. This is in part to protect online casinos from having to pay out many hundreds of thousands of $’s or €’s, something that would be entirely possible if higher maximum limits would be in place.
The theoretical payout rate is an excellent 96.54%.
This is, however, a very high variance slot, which may lead to lots of highs and lows in your casino balance.
Symbols and payouts
The donuts are worth the most. They come in 4 delicious varieties.
The purple donut with the sprinkles is worth the most: 15 x the total bet with every 4-of-a-kind. Red, blue and green donuts are valued between 1 x and 2 x the bet.
The card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are only worth between 0.2 and 0.6 x the bet.
Donuts already payout with a 3-of-a-kind, but the card symbols only pay out on 4-of-a-kinds.
The wild symbols replace all other symbols, except the scatters and can also contain multipliers.
The mystery boxes have donuts in them (up to 4) or wild symbols.
Free spin bonus
Big Time Gaming or more scatters (the golden donut) will get you the free spin bonus: 12 free spins with 3 scatters and 20 free spins with 4 scatters.
First, before you obtain these free spins, the multiplier has to be determined. This is done in a re-spin round with 3 re-spins, wherein you have to gather as many donuts as possible. Every time you spin a doughnut the re-spin counter is reset again to 3.
The maximum multiplier that you can save up is an astronomical 50 x.
This multiplier is valid for all free spins. Retriggering the free spins is possible.
The potential of this free spin bonus is truly enormous through the combination of the win all ways, wilds and mystery boxes.
Our verdict on the Donuts video slot
Big Time Gaming has released with Donuts a pretty simple, but lots of fun slot. Alas, the Feature Drop™ element, which allows you to buy direct access into the bonus rounds, has not been added here.
If you do manage to win the free spin bonus round, your balance can take off and simply sky-rocket.
The graphics in this game came together really well: the donuts look yummy!
The background music is surprisingly tranquil for a Big Time Gaming slot, known for its slightly hysterical tunes.
4 out of 5 stars.
