Big Time Gaming steps up its production with another creative online slot. It’s called Donuts and, have no doubt, it will make your mouth water. The slot is themed on donuts, those sweet, soft sugary delights with holes in them. No matter how ridiculous they may look, they taste heavenly and there’s not a person in the world that doesn’t enjoy a good donut. Donuts is a unique slot that runs on a 4x4 grid and features up to 2,401 ways to win.
Set in a desert landscape, Donuts shows a typical American drive-in ‘joint’ that specializes in donuts and creamy sweets. Hence the name ‘321 Donuts’. The reels are presented in a drive-in menu style and as soon as you pull over you can take your order of fresh wins.
Icons such as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values. Higher payouts are assigned to four donuts with different toppings. But that’s not where the paytable ends. It also features two special symbols, a multilayered chocolate cake Wild and golden donut Scatters. The stakes can go from as low as $0.05 to as high as $10. The Wild lands only on reels 2 and 4 and has the ability to replace all other icons, except for the golden donut Scatter. Autoplay is available, allowing you to observe from 5 to 100 automatic spins without interruption, at a set stake. You can also set the loss and single win limit.
The special features of Donuts are quite intricate, attractive and creative, but they are not as easy to trigger as we’d want them to. For one, there’s the Boxes feature. Boxes of donuts lad on the reels and increase your winning potential. How? They will open and reveal up to 4 donuts or a Wild with a multiplier assigned to it, a 2x, 3x or 4x multiplier. Thanks to the Boxes feature, Donuts counts on 2,401 ways to win.
The Free Spins feature is triggered by landing 3 or 4 golden donuts anywhere in view. You can receive 12 or 20 freebies. It becomes nighttime and a special set of reels appears. The free spins are played with only golden donuts and blank positions. You will notice a 3-2-1 countdown; each golden donut resets the countdown back to three and allows more golden donuts to add multipliers to upcoming free spins wins. The multipliers range from 1x to 50x the stake. Once the multiplier is acquired, the free spins begin. The round can be retriggered up to an unlimited number of times. Two golden donuts will bring 10 extra spins, three of them will add 20 more and 4 Scatters will introduce a total of 30 gratis spins into the feature.
It may take you more than a thousand spin on Donuts before you activate the bonus. It is how the game’s mechanism was built. But once you trigger it, your balance will receive a sizeable boost, for sure. A lot is going on across an unusual set of reels, so Donuts may not be the best fit for beginners. It comes with an RTP of 96.54% and a recommendation from Homer Simpson.
