“Donuts. Is there anything they can’t do?” – Homer Simpson
Get ready to devour Homer’s favourite treat on the reels of this video slot from Big Time Gaming in a 4×4 format with up to 2,401 ways to win. Sounds strange? Yes indeed, and it might take some time to get used to the format as the creative team at BTG is stretching our imagination to a new level on how a game with only 4 reels can produce wins of up to 40,000x stake. These donuts sure are mighty tempting.
Donuts is a video slot with four reels, four rows and up to 2,401 ways to win. How is that possible might be the next question. The answer is wild multipliers of up to x4 and mystery donut boxes revealing up to 4 donuts or more multipliers that will transform single line wins into super mega multi-line wins. Give Donuts a spin from just 0.05 credits up to a maximum of 12.50 credits. The RTP of this highly volatile game is set at a rather generous 96.54%. The reel format makes it perfect for play on mobile devices but looks equally good on a desktop computer.
Get a feel of Americana when you open the game with a game window set against a desert highway with a giant Donut drive-in diner on the side. The reels are dominated by donuts in various flavours and icing colours. A rather serene soundtrack in the base game is dramatically interrupted by thumping sounds from scatters or mystery donut boxes landing on the reels. It turns to a racier beat in the free spins round.
BTG once again stuck to its standard pay symbol set and colour palette. At the low end are the usual card royals from 9s to As, followed at the medium level by donuts with green, blue and red icing. The top symbol is a sprinkled purple donut. Pays for a single four of a kind range from 0.2x to 15x the stake. A typical 60s jukebox is the wild symbol which can appear as single wild or with a win multiplier of up to x4. A golden donut is the scatter symbol with minimum three needed to trigger the free spins. Mystery Donut boxes can land on any reel in the base game only and will reveal either two to four donuts of one colour or a multiplier of up to x4.
Looking for some extra thrill? Then hit three or four Golden Donut scatters to trigger 12 or 20 Free Spins. But first the kicker, the round starts with a Bonus Countdown awarding three spins where only scatters are on the reels, each revealing a multiplier from x1 to x50. Any further scatter landing will reveal more multipliers and reset the counter to three spins. At the end, the accumulated multiplier will be in play for the entire Free Spins. Expect to see them going occasionally well over x100. And that’s not all yet as the Free Spins can be indefinitely retriggered. Two, three or four scatters landing on a free spin will award 10, 20 or 30 free spins respectively. Each retrigger will also lead back to the golden donut reel set with the same mechanic that will award additional multipliers.
Well, is it time to say ‘bye, bye diet’ or avoid tasty temptation? In line with Homer’s phrase, there is hardly anything these donuts on this slot can’t do. Given the high volatility nature of Donuts and the ultra-low bet availability, along with not just big but massive win potential, it may be well worth satisfying that sweet tooth after all.
