Now, we’re not trying to advocate an unhealthy lifestyle, but who can resist gorging on a big box of doughnuts every now and again? Soft dough, sweet sticky glaze and an irresistibly delicious layer of icing – we’re drooling a la Homer Simpson just thinking about it! This novelty 3-reel slot machine won’t do you any favours if you’re feeling peckish – or if you’re trying to go on a diet – but it does make for some tasty spins with its unique doughnut theme.
The reels of the game are decorated with a delicious assortment of doughy items, including some strawberry iced doughnuts, a range of colourfully sprinkled BAR icons and a trio of 7-shaped doughs complete with blackberry, apple and lemon flavoured icing. All of these icons are designed in a simple yet eye-catching way, ensuring that players will be hungry for some retro spins as well as some sugary treats! All in all, the game’s appearance is more than satisfactory. In fact, it could easily be classed as one of the better designed slot machines from the 3-reel genre.
Place Your Bets
Most punters might think that a 3-reel slot machine means simple and straightforward gameplay but that isn’t always the case. Dollars to Donuts is an example of a retro style slot that offers some intricate betting action, with 5 paylines across the 3 reels and a range of betting options that will affect the overall payout potential of the slot.
Punters can trigger any number of paylines between 1 and 5, although playing with all 5 is obviously going to make for more winning possibility. Once the paylines are set, spinners then have to choose the value of the coin that they wish to place on each active payline along with the number of coins on each payline. The smallest coin value available in 0.01 with a maximum value of 5.00 credits. From a glance at the slot’s paytable which appears on the left hand side of the game screen, players will notice that there are different prizes on offer when 1x, 2x or 3x coins are placed on a spin, with most payouts increasing proportionally to return the same prize in ratio to the total bet that was placed. For example, finding three doughnut icons on the reels will effective double the overall stake no matter if 1x, 2x or 3x coins are in play.
The only instance in which it is more potentially lucrative to play with 3x coins is when it comes to the game’s most valuable icon – the “Dollars to Donuts” logo symbol. That is because this symbol will pay out a 1,500x multiplier when 1x coin is in play, a 3,000x multiplier when 2x coins are active and a 5,000x multiplier when 3x coins are wagered. As you can see, this makes for a slightly more valuable jackpot return since the 3x coin jackpot is more than triple the 1x coin jackpot. This logo icon also acts as the wild icon, meaning that it will replace other symbols on the reels.
You might be surprised to discover that there are actually quite a few slots online which take inspiration from the mighty doughnut! Such games include titles such as Cops and Donuts by IGT software, Awesome Supreme Donut Blitz by Ebony Burwell and Donut Cookies & Sweet Jam by 777 Jackpot Journey. That makes for a lot of doughnut themed spinning action; you’d better loosen your belt!
Doughnut Miss This Slot
Unfortunately, this 3-reel slot machine won’t literally turn your dollars into doughnuts but it will hopefully turn your money into even more money with its medium volatility level and 5,000x coin multiplier jackpot. With that in mind, punters will potentially be able to buy all of the doughnuts that they could possibly eat! That said, if you are used to playing 5-reel video slots with big bonus gameplay features, then you might be a bit underwhelmed by the lack of bonus features in this Rival Gaming slot.
