Donuts Slot Review
“Donuts! Is there anything that they can’t do?” said Homer Simpson and it would appear that he’s right. Big Time Gaming, the guys who are more well known for unleashing Megaways on the slot world have launched a new slot called Donuts. The BGT folk don’t like to do “normal” slots and Donuts has all sorts of quirky things going on. For example the game is played on a 4×4 grid rather than the usual 3 rows and 5 columns. The big question is does Donuts as a slot serve up some tasty treats?
How To Play Donuts
Donuts is set on a backdrop of an American Diner location. A huge iced pink donut sits on top of the 3-2-1 Donuts store and it wouldn’t look out of place in The Simpsons. The 4×4 slots sits to the right of the diner and the 4×4 grid looks to have a kind of 60s jukebox style. Win lines are created by symbols appearing adjacent to each other from left to right. To play you simply need to choose a wager which can be changed from 5p up to £10. An Autoplay option is available and this also allows you to set loss limits and single win limits.
On the grid are a bunch of tasty looking donuts – purple, red, blue and green iced treats and these make up the high paying symbols. Four purple donuts will get you a x15 win whilst it’s just x2 for red donuts. Donuts also pay out for 3 of a kind on a win line. The playing card symbols of A, K, J, 10 and 9 make up the lower end of the pay table. Note that you only get a win for 4 of a kind of the low paying symbols. Donut boxes may appear on the reels and these increase your chances to win by increasing paylines, revealing wilds or multipliers.
Donuts Free Spins
Additionally you’ll find wilds on the reels and these substitute all symbols except scatter. Wilds only appear on reels 2 to 4! The scatter symbol is the golden donut. Get 3 or 4 of these on the reels to trigger 12 or 20 free spins. The bonus round starts with a golden donut round to determine a multiplier that will apply to all wins on your free spins. The 3-2-1 numbers will countdown to zero to complete this pre-bonus round. The countdown resets to three when a golden donut is revealed. The golden donut also increases that multiplier.

If you head to Jackpotjoy and select ‘demo play’ then you can try the slot for free. This is worth doing before wagering any money as it gives you an idea of the mechanic and gameplay.

The Spin On Donuts
To coin a phrase: “Big Time Gaming! Is there anything they can’t do?”. They’ve taken the humble donut and elevated it into an exciting and intriguing slot game. Although there’s an air of simplicity about the game it maintains interest through several spins. Wins were surprisingly fairly frequent and the bonus round did pop up once during our trial play. The bonus round is decent for big wins as are the donut boxes which are where BGT smuggle in a few more win lines. Overall an enjoyable slot that if nothing else makes you want to go straight to Krispy Kreme! The game has an RTP of 96.52%.
