With shows like the Great British Bake-off continuing to prove popular with TV viewers, it is hardly a shock to find that a leading casino software developer like Play ‘n Go have tried to bring cakes and desserts to the casino world.
Baker’s Treat is the result, and this mobile pokie is certainly sweet, offering delicious features, even if its petite non-progressive jackpot may leave a bit of a bad taste in your mouth.
How to play
As you will no doubt have noticed, there are just 15 paylines spread over the mobile pokie’s 5 reels. None of those can be adjusted, though bets can rise from $0.15 per spin at the floor, to £75 at the ceiling. The reels themselves are portrayed as sections of a tablecloth, upon which sit a series of delicious treats, masquerading as symbols. Even if the payline structure and prizes leave you hungry for more, in terms of special features, all the ingredients are there to make this a top mobile pokie.
Wild symbols: The triple-layer dessert acts as a wild. This symbol is standard fare for any pokie nowadays, and it can substitute for any other icons barring scatter symbols.
Cake Collection feature: Players will note that above each of the reels in the game are a set of counters, each one designated to a type of dessert or cake. When players land stacked cake symbols on the correct reel, they will fill up sections of those counters. One a metre is full, the Cake Collection bonus for that counter will begin. These are free spins and are known as Flour Power Spins.
Flour Power Spins: Players who complete a collection will land 3 free spins and the Flour Power bonus for that collection. The green cupcake collection offers two locked reels showing the same icons, while blueberry pie and carrot cake collections offer a wild reel, and carrot cake wilds, respectively. The lemon cheesecake and strawberry sponge collections promise expanding wilds, and all macaroons are turned into high-paying symbols, respectively. Remember each of these Flour Power Spin bonuses offer 3 free games for you to use those features on.
Bake-Off Spins: If you wish to enjoy a proper free spin feature, though, you’ll need to trigger the Bake-Off Spins bonus. This is only activated when players land a correct cake symbol on each reel at the same time. In this bonus, players get a total of 5 free games with one of the Flour Power/Cake Collection bonuses being added to each spin.
As mentioned, the RTP and non-progressive prizes in this game aren’t much to write home about. Players are not particularly going to be impressed with the 94.04% RTP (return to player) rate, nor are they going to jump for joy at the non-progressive prize which is worth just 40x your total bet.
Play ‘N Go’s Baker’s Treat mobile pokie delivers an exciting and exhilarating gameplay experience. It can also be commonly found in most major online casinos. However, don’t expect to win life-changing sums of cash in this game, as it simply won’t happen.
