A four-reel, four-row, high-variance (i.e. high-risk) slot from Big Time Gaming (BTG), Donuts Slots is a follow-up to the likes of Bonanza and Extra Chili, and offers plenty in the way of sweet treats! The design has a strongly American vibe, with its desert highway background (surrounded by cacti and rock stacks) and a huge, 1950-style donut shop and diner to the side. There’s a madcap feel, and thousands of ways to win – so get stuck in!
The gameplay focuses on a 4×4 format, and the base game awards wins of up to 15x your original wager. Meanwhile, Donuts Slots also offers the chance for unlimited free spins plus collectable multipliers leading to potentially vast wins if you strike it lucky. Enjoy it across all devices.
How to play
Four donuts with various toppings are the sweeter, higher-value icons, and they’re red, blue, green and purple. The purple one is the premium icon, awarding you a 15x win if you bag four of them.
Meanwhile, Jack, King, Queen and Ace make up the lower values, alongside the numbers 9 and 10.
Other symbols include donut boxes, glazed donuts, a jukebox and playing cards.
Donuts Slots Special Symbols
The Wild symbol takes the form of a jukebox, and will only show up on Reels 2 and 4.
Meanwhile, the Scatter symbol is a golden donut, which makes a heavy sound when it drops. (This may be familiar to you from other BTG offerings.)
Launch this one when you land two, three or four of the gold donut Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. This earns you 10, 20 or 30 free whirls respectively, which you play on a set of reels containing only blank spaces and golden donuts.
This feature triggers when there are three straight spins in a row or once the Scatter symbols have filled up every 1×1 reel.
Should a donut box land on the reels, it will open to show up to four donuts, which extends the Paylines. Alternatively, you may get a Wild with a multiplier factor of two or four.
Bag a Bonus Round
This triggers when three or four gold donut Scatters land anywhere on the reels. It means you get 12 or 20 free spins respectively. Note, this is different from the free spins round which follows this bonus one and which we mention above.
During this bonus round, you’ll see 16 1×1 reels, each either drawing a blank or revealing a gold donut Scatter icon for every spin.
It kicks off with three spins. Each Scatter which lands on the reels increases the free spins multiplier between one and 50 times. It also resets the spins to the starting number of three.
Return to Player (RTP)
The RTP is perfectly fine with this game, set at a standard 96.54%.
Donuts joins the likes of other BTFG games in offering something innovative and a little out of the ordinary, with some clever gameplay, a pleasing theme and a generally ‘feel-good’ vibe.
Admittedly some reviewers have found the design ‘cartoonish’ or ‘not high-quality’. But the two-stage bonus round helps retain interest for longer than some other games and Donuts is set to be a popular addition to Big Time Gaming’s portfolio, while its free spins are definitely worth chasing.
