Video Slot Review – Donuts - BTG
Big Time Gaming (BTG) have been very quiet about this slot since we first saw a tiny preview during ICE in London this January. The rumours are spreading and we’ve been able to get our hands on a selection of screen-shots that we’ll share with you guys today. Donuts Slot has a 4x4 grid of symbols and 2401 ways to win. The higher paying symbols are all doughnuts in different colours. They come alone or up to three together on a paper plate. As for the lower paying ones we find the standard 9-A symbols. The theme of the game is doughnuts, cakes and everything sweet. Nick Robinson, CEO of BTG tells us “....this game has huge, huge potential, hence the €12.50 max bet” so we can safely assume you’ll find a highly volatile game, with a potentially unlimited re-triggers of the free-spins.
Regarding special features, you will find wilds, scatters and a potential of unlimited free-spins!
Design and Symbols
Donuts from BTG is all about the sweet treat itself. In the background, find something that looks like a roadside doughnut shop in the middle of the desert. All symbols are very colourful, in good BTG style. There’s not much to say about the music, as it is very generic. That said when you hit a win, or a special symbol appears on the reels, you will be rewarded with a nice jingle.
BTG have created some of the most interesting new features and mechanics for online video slots these last couple of years, and Donuts slot is no exception. Here we find the Cake boxes hiding anything from multiplying Wilds, to symbols granting additional ways to win. In addition, we find the regular wild and scatter symbols granting free-spins.
To activate free-spins, you have to land three or four golden doughnuts during the base game. You will receive 12 or 20 spins respectively. Initially, you will be taken to the bonus round, where you will accumulate multipliers during your free spins.
- You have three rounds in the bonus game to begin with.
- For each round it will count down.
- If you get Golden Doughnuts during, the counter will reset.
- The free-spins round commences as soon as the Bonus Countdown reaches zero.
- During the free spins, the accrued multiplier will apply to all spins.
In classic BTG style, we will find the potential of unlimited re-triggers during free spins.
The boxes in Donuts slot carry more than just sweets. Here you will find up to four extra ways to win with the higher paying symbols. Not only that, but you will also find wilds with up to 4x multipliers. These lands on the reels both during the free spins rounds and the base game.
Our thoughts on Donuts
With the potentially unlimited re-triggers during free spins, this game will create some proper winnings moments for sure. That said, with the missing feature buy, there are still some things left to be desired. We’ve gotten used to buying our bonus rounds from BTG.
The build-up for the free spin rounds during the bonus game really caught our attention. The fact that it counts down, and gets reset for every golden doughnut that appears keeps you on edge all the way to the free-spins.
