Donuts Slot Review – Big Time Gaming

Big Time Gaming is a well known Australian studio, with some of the most popular slots in the casino industry and still shocking us with new innovative ideas. The studio does not release every month like others, instead of around 1 – 2 months to really focus on perfecting games. Today we go back to 2018 to learn all about ‘Donuts‘, which was originally released 4th July 2018.

Donuts Slot Review Casino Big Time Gaming Visuals Base Game

Donuts has a cartoon style theme, with an American diner on a highway in the desert. There are big white clouds which move in the blue sky, there are mountains in the distance and a road. There are also other small details such as cactus, grass and the diner with colourful cars parked outside. I love the visuals for this game and think Big Time Gaming did a fantastic job.

This game has a setup of 4 reels by 4 rows, this includes 256 pay lines. This game is high variance with a set RTP of 96.54% and max win capped at 20,000x. You can bet from £0.05 – £10.

There are 12 symbols in total, this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by 9,10, J, Q, K, A in that order of lowest to highest. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by green, blue, red and purple donuts. In addition to these regular symbols is a rainbow cake wild and golden donut bonus scatter. The highest paying symbol is the purple donut premium, which pays 15x for 15 across all reels. Wilds substitute for all symbols except the scatter, wilds appear on reels 2 – 4 only.

Donuts Slot Review Features

In the base, game boxes will randomly land on all reels. These boxes will increase your wins as they will contain a random donut symbol. But each will contain 2-4 of the symbol. Each donut in each box represents a multiplier. Essentially they act as symbol wilds. So a box of 4 is a 4x multiplier. You will just have to hope these boxes of mystery will line up with the right symbols to potentially win big. These extra multipliers could really help boost your balance but could just keep missing. Normal wilds can help connect these boxes up which helps out a lot in the base game.

Landing 3 scatters will trigger the ‘Free Spins‘ feature, this will award 12 free spins. If you land 4 scatters for the initial trigger you be awarded 20 free spins. You will first have bonus countdown spins.  So the reels will spin but will only contain golden donut symbols with random multipliers between 1-50x. For each one, you collect you will add them all up at the end of these spins. After each spin that you land a multiplier, the spins will reset to 3. So if you have already used 2 spins but didn’t land any symbols, but then land on your last spin you will go back to 3 spins. When you have had 3 spins without a multiplier symbol landing, the free spins will start with your multiplier added and applied to your free spins.

The multiplier you have collected is applied to all wins in free spins. You can get unlimited retriggers with 2,3 or 4 scatters. 2 Scatters Award = 10 additional spins, 3 Scatters Awards = 20 additional spins and 4 Scatters Award = 30 extra free spins.


Overall, I really love the visual aspect of Donuts and detail. The theme is unique and Big Time Gaming did a fantastic job creating visuals. This game offers high variance with a max win capped at 20,000x and set RTP of 96.54%. Be sure to try the game for yourself if you haven’t already.
