Developer NetEnt has announced the launch of its brand-new video slot, Cupcakes.
The new casino game is based on cupcakes, and it utilises a colourful sweet theme with the slot’s reels set within a cupcake-themed world.
The game uses a 6×7 grid layout with a cluster pays mechanic, and it has an RTP of 96.05% with high variance, so you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins when playing.
Cupcakes require a bet of between £0.10 and £200, and its symbols include various coloured gumdrops as well as scatter and cupcake symbols.
The Cupcakes slot is available at most mobile casinos, including PlayOJO, SlotsMillion, 44Aces, Playjango, SpinGenie, and more brands.
Like most NetEnt slots, Cupcakes comes with several special features, although no Wild symbols. One of the main mechanics in the game is its Avalanche feature, in which winning clusters of eight or more symbols are removed from the reels and new symbols added. New symbols can form more wins, which continues the reaction until no more wins are made.
Alongside the above, winning symbols are collected by cupcakes, which appear on any spin and occupy the bottom of any two reels on the playing grid. When cupcake symbols collect ten or more gumdrops, they award their respective Multiplier and are removed from the reels.
There’s also a Crush feature, which is randomly triggered during the main game or the free spins mode when five or more gumdrop symbols from one of the reel pairs become part of a winning combination. When triggered, all gumdrop symbols are removed, and a cupcake symbol is added in their place.
Finally, the game has a Free Spins mode, which is triggered by landing three or more Scatter symbols. The Multiplier is reset at the beginning of the feature, and at the end of every free spin, the win from the spin is multiplied by the current Multiplier. More spins can be won by landing additional Scatter symbols.
Gionata La Torre, the Chief Executive Office Europe at Evolution, said in a statement: “Gumdrop symbols stockpiling on giant cupcakes for multipliers is an engaging concept created by the teams to bring additional excitement into this delicious-looking game.
“This novelty comes in addition to the well-known Avalanche mechanic, when the symbols disappear on payout and the empty places are filled with new characters. Cupcakes will surely be a mesmerising title for all the cake enthusiasts and gum candy aficionados.”
