The sweet goodies on the reels of the Baker's Treat slot, available at Play'n Go casinos, might make you want to lick your screen. However, as hungry as they may make you, what you're really going to be impressed with in this game is how in-depth and innovative the features are. It's designed around a long style of gameplay, and along these lines, the replay value of this title is substantial. It's the kind of game that players will want to come back to over and over again.
The basic format for this title has 15 paylines that go around five reels and three horizontal rows. These paylines pay in both directions, however, and this becomes an important point in some of the features, which we'll describe below. To keep the betting simple, all 15 paylines are forced to be on at all times, and you can also pick from bet sizes that start at $0.15 per turn and that go up to $75 apiece. This is a betting range that includes enough flexibility that you won't have to worry about not having bet sizes that work for you no matter what stakes you're comfortable with.
Note that all of the pays in this game that we describe are going to be based on a bet size of $1.50. If you choose a smaller or larger size, your pays will scale appropriately.
Wild Cake Symbol
The large, stacked cake is the highest-paying regular symbol as the wild. Five of a kind earns 60x, and you can pick up 12x for four of a kind as well. With just three, you'll still earn 3x. Note that you'll be paid for the best payout available on the payline overall, so if you have three wilds paired with a symbol that will give you a larger win for four of a kind of that extra symbol, then you'll be given that payout instead of the pay for three wilds. This gives you the best value available on a consistent basis so that there is no confusion.
Bake Off Feature
You'll notice that each of the five reels has its own cake associated with it. If you get one of each respective cake on the reels at the same time, then you'll trigger the Bake Off feature. In this feature, you'll get up to 10 free turns in addition to an instant win worth 80 times your total payout. You'll get the extra features described below with the Cake Collection features during this set of free spins as well for added value.
Cake Collection Features
You'll notice meters above the reels for each of the five respective cakes. Getting a reel full of that cake adds one to the meter, and when you get the meter full with three symbols, you'll trigger a short set of free spins called Flour Power spins. The cupcake is the first reel, which gets you three free spins with two reels linked together. The blueberry pie on the second reel earns three free spins with a wild reel.
Carrot cake on the third reel gives you three free spins with extra wilds, and the lemon cheesecake on the first reel gives three free turns with expanding wilds. Finally, the strawberry sponge power of the fifth reel earns three free spins where all of the macaron symbols convert into one color for better payouts.
Prizes and Symbol Sets
The top level of payouts is determined by the five treats that trigger the Cake Collection features. The red symbol gets 60x for five of a kind, and you can make that 30x for five of the yellow. The orange earns 18x for five, and five of the purple on a payline gets you a 15x win. You can also pick up 9x for five of the green cupcake. These symbols look amazing, and it goes to show what Play'n Go can do with their graphics when you walk away from this game much hungrier than you were before.
The bottom pays are all macarons in different colors. They all pay 3x for five of a kind.
The Baker's Treat video slot is a great example of using a food motif in a way that builds up the gameplay and that looks amazing. This is definitely the kind of game that a lot of different players will like, and it's no wonder considering how tasty the treats are that you'll find on the reels. However, the gameplay and features definitely help the situation a lot as well.
