It’s the 1950s and you’ve just walked into an all-American diner for the most famous of all sweet snacks in this Donuts mobile slot.
It’s certainly eye-catching though (perhaps) a little messy, with mostly Ace to 10 symbols littering the reels and only four high paying donuts symbols.
That last fact is important in creating those multiple ways to win.
The Donut box symbol acts as a mystery symbol; except unlike games like Fortunium slot where they come stacked here you get the occasional one or two on the reels.
This donut box will hide… well, Donuts, mostly, but in sets of 2, 3s or 4s. So if you find four donuts on reel 2, and reel one has that same donut, you get an instant 5 of a kind win.
And that’s how you get 2,401 ways to win in this Donuts slot machine. Using those special symbols. They even give you wilds with multipliers! Pretty exciting hey?
This Donuts video slot is a bit like heading into an American Diner. At first, you think it’s wonderfully nostalgic and cool, but then you realise the food rarely lives up to expectations.
Which is how this whole game felt. The mystery symbols were few and far between, the high paying symbols are even fewer, the wild symbols only show up on 2 reels, and even the free spins (with promises of big multipliers) rarely give you more than 20x your bet.
Don’t get us wrong, there’s big potential here and multipliers up to 18x, which is why this slot game gets more than 1 stars.
But only just. Personally, we’d prefer the simpler Swipe and Roll slot by NetEnt.

Wilds: The radio is the wild symbol and will replace all other symbols on the reels to create ways to win.
Boxes Symbols: The boxes will hide donuts in sets of 2s, 3s, and 4s, which count towards the ways to win.
It also hides wilds which will have a 2x or 4x multiplier - but they are very rare.
Scatters and Bonus Rounds: 3 or 4 golden Donuts symbols will trigger 12 or 30 free spins.
But before that, you play a simple game where you spin to collect more golden doughnuts and with it, multipliers on the free spins.
You start with 3x and generally end up with somewhere around 10x multiplier, up to 18x (that we've seen).
It tells you something about the base game wins that even a 14 multiplier doesn't get you much more than 20x your bet.
This Donut slot on mobile certainly looks good, but much like the sweet treat, you can have too much of a good thing.
And this Big Time Gaming betting slot is a good thing, or at least it has all the right elements.
It's unique, it's trying to do something different and there's big multiplier to be had with many ways to win.
It just doesn't do all the elements well enough to make it exciting for more than a few rounds, especially as you need several of the bonus features to come together to get anything close to over 30x your bet.
