Naughty but nice, actually very nice indeed. There are tempting delights galore waiting for you on Baker’s Treat from game provider Play’n GO. With a theme based on several tasty-looking sweet treats as well as boasting not just one but five base game features as well as a pay-both ways mechanic, stacked wilds and not to forget the Bake Off free spins round, the opportunity for mega wins truly awaits those hungry players.
Bakers Treat is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 15 fixed pay lines. Very low-roller friendly in that you can spin away from as little as 0.15 credits per spin but also for the more risky players who can choose to bet up to 75 credits per spin. Carrying an RTP of 96.04% and a maximum win of 5,000 times your stake, this slot falls in to the medium volatility range, albeit trending towards high variance.
Visually, the game has a very soft and gentle appearance with the background drawn around a kitchen environment and a lush flower garden visible through the kitchen window. The reel strips are shown over a typical baking table cloth. Symbol collection displays are placed on top of the game window, which will come into play once three of the respective symbols are accumulated. A pleasing but slightly repetitive soundtrack might convince some players to mute it after a while.
Don’t expect the usual card suits as pay symbols on Baker’s Treat as they are a variety of cakes, macaroons and other sweet treats. The low-paying symbols are five differently coloured macaroons, paying two times the stake for five of a kind. The high-value symbols include a cup cake, a blueberry pie slice, a carrot cake, a lemon cheesecake and finally a strawberry sponge, which is the highest paying symbol with 40x the stake for a five of a kind. The wild symbol is a large party cake, paying the same as the strawberry sponge.
There are no scatter symbols on this slot as the free spins are triggered by landing one collectible symbol on each reel. All premium symbols can appear stacked in the base game and free spins, while the wild appears stacked during the bonus features only.
The Flour Power Spins
Baker’s Treat has five base game features that are triggered by collecting high-value pay symbols in the displays on top of the game window. Each of the five high-value symbols has one collection meter. To fill up the meter, a player needs to land a full stack of the respective symbol on the same reel where its collection meter is placed. Three Flour Power spins with different reel modifiers are awarded once three of one type are accumulated. Multiple features can be triggered in the same spin.
- Cupcake Power – Two reels are linked, guaranteeing matching symbols
- Blueberry Pie Power – One reel is a stacked wild
- Carrot Cake Power – All carrot cake symbols are upgraded to wild symbols
- Lemon Cheesecake Power – All regular wilds will expand to cover the entire reel.
- Strawberry Sponge – All macaroons are converted into a common macaroon symbol.
The Bake Off Free Spins Feature
This is the moment to show off your best baking skills as the free spins feature has the best potential to score the maximum win on Baker’s Treat. The feature is triggered when the five cake symbols land on their corresponding collection reel in one spin. Five free spins are awarded with one extra spin for each of the symbols landing in a full stack on the triggering spin. The maximum is 10 free spins, which cannot be retriggered.
During the free spins, the five Flour Power features are activated consecutively, leading to all reel modifiers being active on spin five. No doubt the best moment to hit the maximum win in a single spin of 600 times your stake. The overall win potential in the free spins peaks at 5,000x the bet.
Are we all going to be bakers after playing on this Play’n GO slot? Given the volatility level of this game, it actually plays quite well with regular smallish wins and frequent triggers of the base game features. We scored even some mega wins just from one base game feature. The big money is though in the Bake Off free spins round where the reel modifiers are all activated on the final spin. Overall, an entertaining game that can pay really big on a lucky day.
