Donuts slot REVIEW

Donuts ReviewAustralian slot developers Big Time Gaming presents Donuts, a delicious highly volatile 4x4 reel video slot with 2401 ways to win with a selection of feature-rich toppings that are too tempting to resist.

A quick glance at the game logo or lobby button, and one could easily mistake this game for a Simpsons branded slot. The striking red and yellow logo, the white clouds in a blue summer sky and the giant donut with pink icing with multi-coloured sprinkles certainly hint at a Simpson-esque theme. There is no doubt Homer Simpson’s favourite snack provided the sweet inspiration for this slot ... Mmmmm donuts!

The game is set against a cartoon-style American desert highway background, with a colourful retro roadside diner dominating the landscape. Cleary, donuts are on the menu! The reel action plays out on a chrome 4x4 grid, reminiscent of a 1950s jukebox or gasoline pump. While the artwork is decent but certainly not high-end, the sounds feel like an after-thought; a muddled mashup of contemporary electronic music, 50s rockabilly, and classical overtures. Fortunately, the game sounds can be muted in the game settings.

A betting range of 0.05 coins to 10.00 coins will suit most players. Autoplay allows players to set their preferred number of spins, as well as specify their win and loss limits.

The base game is pretty much standard fare, however, playing a 4x4 slot is a little unusual. The low-paying symbols will only payout for 4 symbols in a winning combination, while the high-paying symbols pay for 3 or 4 symbols in a winning combination.

The Donut Boxes are the standout feature in the base game. These are essentially mystery symbols in the form of a closed donut box. If a box lands on any of the reels, it opens to reveal up to 4 Donut Symbols, or a Wild Symbol with a 2x, 3x or 4x Multiplier. The extra 2, 3 or 4 donuts can help to complete a winning combination, and they increase the number of ways to win to a maximum of 2401 ways.

3 or 4 Gold Donut Symbols will trigger the Bonus Round and award 12 or 20 Free Spins respectively. We'll discuss the Free Spins Bonus in detail shortly, so keep reading!

Game Symbols

The purple, red, blue and green donuts are the high-paying symbols, with the Purple Donut being the most valuable at 15x your bet for 4 of a kind.

The low-value card ranks are hardly worth mentioning, as they pay a meagre 0.2x to 0.6x your bet for 4 symbols in a winning combination.

The Cake Wild Symbol appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and substitutes for all symbols except the Scatter.

What could be better than a box full of delicious glazed donuts? Gold donuts of course! 3 or 4 Gold Donut Scatters will trigger the Bonus Round and award 12 or 20 Free Spins respectively.

The payout values for 4 symbols in a winning combination are as follows:

Purple Donut – 15x bet

Red Donut – 2x bet

Blue Donut – 1x bet

Green Donut – 1x bet

Ace - 0.6x bet

King, Queen – 0.4x bet

Jack, 10, 9 - 0.2x bet

Free Spins in Donuts

Landing 3 or 4 Gold Donut Scatters anywhere on the reels will trigger the Bonus Feature and award 12 or 20 Free Spins respectively.

The Bonus Round will determine the value of the multiplier that is applied to all wins in the Free Spins Bonus. The Bonus Countdown begins with 3 spins, and Gold Donuts can appear randomly in any of the 16 positions on the reels. Each Golden Donut represents a multiplier value of 1x to 50x. The more Golden Donuts you collect, the higher the value of multiplier applied to all wins in the Free Spins Bonus.

If a Gold Donut appears on the grid, the Bonus Countdown is reset to 3, and when the Bonus Countdown reaches 0, the Free Spins will initiate. The accrued multiplier is applied to all wins during the Free Spins Bonus. As we enter the Free Spins Bonus the colourful Donut Diner inexplicably turns into a space rocket because ... reasons!

2, 3, or 4 Gold Donut Scatters award 10, 20, or 30 extra Free Spins respectively, so the combination of massive multipliers and retriggers means the Free Spins Bonus offers some huge win potential.

It's worth noting the mystery Donut Box is not available during Free Spins.

What is the jackpot (max win)?

Donuts is a high volatility (variance) game, with a Return To Player (RTP) of 96.54%. Theoretically, the Free Spins Bonus and retrigger indefinitely, couple that with a massive win multiplier and you have some astronomical winnings. BTG has not published any official stats, however, we have been told (unofficially) the game has been capped at a maximum of 100 000 coins.

SlotCatalog verdict

We've come to expect high volatility action from Big Time Gaming, and Donuts is no exception. In our gameplay session, the base game felt slow and dry and didn't seem to offer any real win potential. However if you have the bankroll and the stamina to trigger the Bonus, the combination of massive multipliers and retriggers could see you reaping some very sweet rewards. BTG's signature Feature Drop (bonus buyout) is not available in Donuts, so you'll have to trigger the Bonus Round organically via the Base Game. Donuts probably won't reach the soaring heights of Extra Chilli or Bonanza, but it certainly is worth a spin. β€˜Do nut’ miss this one!

Pros

Fun and quirky retro theme

Affordable 0.05 minimum bet

Potentially massive accumulating multipliers in Free Spins

Unlimited Free Spins retriggers

Cons

Free Spins Bonus takes some time to trigger

Base game feels dry and wins are not particularly exciting

Sounds are annoying
