Donuts is a 5 reel slots game that is 4 symbols high. The game does not use traditional paylines, instead offering wins for combinations of 3 matching adjacent symbols, playing from left to right. There are 2401 different winways in total.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Multicoloured Cake”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters. Wild symbols will only appear on reels 2 and 4.
Free Spins/Bonus – The Free Spins symbol is the “Golden Donut”. The “Golden Donut” is a Scatter symbol, meaning it can trigger the Free Spins feature without having to form part of a winning payline. It will also trigger the game’s Bonus feature.
Boxes – Donut “Boxes” can increase the number of ways that you can win by adding up to 4 additional donut symbols to the reels. Alternatively, that can also add Wilds to the reels containing between x2 and x4 multipliers.
Bonus – The Bonus Feature will begin automatically before the Free Spins start. During it 16 individual symbols are displayed, each of which can reveal either a blank result or a “Gold Donut”. The round will begin with the countdown at 3. Each “Gold Donut” resets the countdown to 3 and increases the multiplier that you take into the Free Spins between 1 and 50 times the bet. The Bonus round ends when the countdown reaches zero.
Free Spins – If you trigger the Free Spins feature by landing 3 or 4 “Golden Donut” symbols anywhere on the reels during one spin then you will be granted 12 or 20 Free Spins respectively. 2, 3 or 4 “Golden Donuts” recommence the Bonus feature and award 10, 20 or 30 additional Free Spins respectively.
Donuts is a simple looking game that comes with plenty of features to keep you coming back for more of those sweet treats. Given the somewhat modest theme on offer this is not a game that is going to blow you away with its visual qualities. The background is of a desert because that’s clearly the best place to stop and eat some donuts. Your symbols are simple because they are pretty much all donuts. There are a few features to keep you engaged, with free spins and a bonus round, along with wilds and a random additional symbol generator. The house edge is very encouraging, sitting at what we would consider to be good value for money. To sum up, this is a solid game, with a few decent features offering good value for money.
