How To Play Cupcakes
The Cupcakes slot is also available to play on mobile devices.
The game controls are at the bottom of the screen. So, start by going through the paytable to familiarise yourself with the different payouts available. You can do this via the (i) button.
Use the Coins icon to set your preferred bet value between £0.10 and £5 per spin.
Spin the reels and wait for them to stop to see the outcome. Cupcakes is a Scatter Pays slot, so winning symbols don’t need to appear in ways, lines, or adjacent for a win to form. It just takes at least 8 matching symbols anywhere on the board for a win to process.
The game uses the Avalanche mechanic, so if winning spins land, the successful symbols disappear, allowing space for new symbols to drop and fill the gaps.
Special symbols include the scatter symbol. Scatters can trigger the Free Spins round. Unfortunately, there is no wild symbol available.
Between 1 and 4 special cupcake symbols can appear during a base game spin or a Free Spin round. If they do, they occupy a 2x2 area at the bottom of reels 1 and 2, 3 and 4, or 5 and 6. Each symbol can have random multiplier values from 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x, 25x, 30x, 50x, or 100x attached. However, cupcake symbols can’t land during Avalanches or feature in scatter wins.
Gumdrops can appear in any position and can feature in Scatter Pays - unlike cupcakes. But, if a certain type of gumdrop forms a winning scatter with a matching cupcake present, the cupcake collects the gumdrop. If the cupcake collects 10 gumdrops, it disappears from the reels and awards its respective multiplier.
The Crush feature may randomly trigger in the base game or in Free Spins if 5 or more Gumdrops feature in a single winning combination across two reels but with 2 or more Gumdrops on both reels. A cupcake falls onto the gumdrops and removes them as a result. The Crush feature can randomly trigger during a spin but won’t under these circumstances;
- A scatter appears in the reel pair.
- The reel pair has two cupcake symbols.
- There are already 4 cupcake symbols on the reels.
Free Spins Feature
You can trigger the Cupcakes Free Spins round if 3 or more scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels on one spin. So, 3, 4, or 5 scatters can trigger 10, 13, or 16 Free Spins, respectively. In addition, if 3, 4, or 5 extra scatters land during the feature, they can trigger 3, 6, or 9 additional Free Spins, respectively. The difference is that the multiplier can reset during the base game spins but won’t during the bonus round.
Return To Player (RTP): 96.05%.
The RTP is a theoretical value and is shown as a percentage. It’s used to describe the percentage of money wagered a particular casino game may pay back to players over a certain period of time.
For example, if a game had a RTP of 92%, in theory, this would mean that for every £100 wagered, the game could return £92 back to players in potential winnings. However, it is important to note that winnings are completely random, and players are not guaranteed to receive this.
