Spin that reel – Donuts slot review
Fancy a donut? Donuts is the latest four reel slot with four rows and a potential 2401 ways to win by Bit Time Gaming. The backdrop of the game has a desert with a gigantic donut shop by the side of the road surrounded by rock stacks and cactuses. We can’t really put our finger on it, but the whole design looks a bit cheap to us, but don’t let this put you off because this game can pay when it is on a roll. The game just does not look as balanced as for example Bonanza or Danger! High Voltage.
There are four donuts with different toppings that represent the higher value symbols – purple, red, blue and green. Obviously the 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. The multicolour wild appears only on reels two and four and it will replace all others to form winning combinations except for the golden donut scatter symbol.
If a donut box lands on the reels it will open to reveal up to four donuts a wild with a multiplier of 2x, 3x or 4x; in this manner it’s possible to create up to 2401 paylines which can result in some serious wins.
Free Spins Golden Donut
Free Spins are triggered by landing three or four of the golden donut scatter symbols anywhere in view. You will receive 12 or 20 free spins respectively; these spins are played on a set of reels containing only golden donuts and blank spaces. Once the 3-2-1 countdown runs out this first stage is over but a gold donut landing will reset it to three – it can increase the multiplier for any wins during the free spins up to a maximum of 50x so you have to get that multiplier up as high as possible to prepare for some incoming big wins.
When that’s done the actual free spins will start with that multiplier applicable to all wins; two, three or four golden donuts landing during this stage will award 10, 20 or a whopping 30 free spins respectively. And when the reels start to slow spin in a Big Time Game you know you could be in for a big win.
As we said at the beginning, this game feels a bit out of balance to us. Of course we are used to the Big Time Gaming games being a bit different and Donuts is no exception, but it just does not really do it for us. However, the gameplay is clever and the two stage bonus round will keep things interesting for a little longer. It’s good fun and comes with an RTP of 96.54% you should definitely give it a go. For us it is just not the best Big Time Gaming title we have ever seen, but that does not win it can’t pay big!
