Bonuses and Features

In this section, we will take a closer look at the different features Donuts has to offer.

Wild Symbol 

The wild symbol in Donuts is easy to spot with a wild ribbon wrapped around multicoloured sugary treat. Wilds can only appear on reels 2 and 4. The wild symbol will be used to replace any symbol except the scatter. 

Donut Boxes 

Donut boxes can appear on all reels and will spit out up to 4 Donuts or a wild with up to a 4x multiplier. If a Donut box appears with 4 Donuts inside it will pay 4 ways for 1 symbol.

Golden Donuts 

The golden Donuts in this slot are used as the bonus symbols. Getting 3 bonus symbols on the screen will give you 12 free spins, getting 4 will give you 20.  

Bonus Round

After receiving 3 or 4 scatter symbols in the base game you will be rewarded with a 2 stage bonus. The first stage is the multiplier builder. On the same 4x4 grid you will start with 3 spins. On at least 1 of the 3 spins, you must land a golden Donut in 1 of the empty spaces. If golden Donut land, then your spin counter is reset to 3, this process repeats until you have 3 spins in a row without a Donut landing. With each Donut that lands in the grid it will add a random multiplier to your total between 1x and 50x. 

After you have completed stage 1 and built up your multiplier it is time to start the free spins. Big wins in the bonus game will be accompanied by the famous ‘slow spins’ from BTG’s popular White Rabbit. If the sounds change and the reels start to slow down then there are some nice payouts headed your way. 

The bonus game in Donuts can retrigger an unlimited number of times, with 2, 3 or 4 Scatters award 10, 20 or 30 free spins respectively and also putting you back onto the multiplier board. 

Our Verdict

Donuts: A game of 2 halves. 

After a while, the base game can start to feel extremely dry, with long runs of dead spins and even when the game does manage to muster up a win, it really struggles to return your original stake. 

From time to time, you will be rewarded with a few lines of purple doughnuts, which can give you a much-needed boost to your balance and will to live. 

But then... After what can feel like an eternity. The bonus symbols land, transforming this dusty desert diner into a spectacle worthy of the Las Vegas strip. This is where the true,  mouth-watering potential of these colourful doughnuts can shine. 

As slot players we expect highly volatile games to be a little lacklustre most of the time, waiting for that big hit. But the base game on Donuts really has nothing going for it, the low payouts on almost every symbol leave you looking out for just the purple doughnuts. 

Thank the confectionary gods that the bonus round makes up for the glorified bagel that is the base game. But as Oscar Wilde said, “The optimist sees the doughnut, the pessimist sees the hole.” Let’s just hope the hole is in the Donuts, not in your balance. Donuts slot can be enjoyed on well-known casinos such as Casoola, Wildz and many more!
