Details about Detective Donut

1. Popiplay has a reputation for incorporating engaging narratives into its slot games. What inspired the unique combination of detective and donut themes in Detective Donut, and how do you believe it boosts the player's experience?

Well, here at Popiplay - we're all about keeping things fresh and funky. When brainstorming for Detective Donut, we wanted to blend two seemingly unrelated elements - the intrigue of a detective story and the irresistible allure of donuts. As for boosting the player's experience, well, let's just say it's like adding extra sprinkles to an already awesome treat. It's not just about spinning reels anymore: it's about diving headfirst into a world where every spin brings you closer to solving the next big mystery.

2. The Detective Donut slot game introduces players to an intriguing crime-solving adventure. What inspired the theme, and why was a detective narrative chosen for this slot?

The idea actually popped up during one of our team's late-night donut runs. We were brainstorming ideas for a new game and one of our game designers thought: 'Why not mix the thrill of a detective story with the joy of sinking your teeth into a delicious donut?'. It's like combining Sherlock Holmes with Homer Simpson - a quirky combo that's just too good to resist!

3. How does Popiplay make sure that both the story and the game in Detective Donut are fun for players?

We make sure that every aspect of the game, from the storyline to the gameplay itself, is highly entertaining. That's why we sprinkled in different sorts of exciting features and bonuses to keep players on the edge of their seats. From cash collection to sweet respin free spins, we make sure that players have exciting bonuses to choose from that serve up a great gaming experience.

Detective Donut slot by Popiplay With an RTP of 97.22% and a max. win of 25,000x, the Detective Donut slot is definitely worth spinning the reels!

4. What steps did your team take to make Detective Donut easy and enjoyable for new players? Looking ahead, can you give us a sneak peek into future projects from Popiplay? Are there plans to further explore narrative-driven slots or introduce new game mechanics?

First things first, we kept the gameplay nice and straightforward. Not many complicated rules or convoluted mechanics! Just fire up the game, adjust your bet size, and hit that spin button. When it comes to our future projects, we have many cool releases to look forward to. One of them is Area 69, that’s planned to be released in June. I’m sure that game is going to be as successful as Detective Donut, if not even more.

As for future endeavors, we're continuously exploring opportunities to deepen the narrative-driven aspects of our games. We're committed to delivering experiences that not only entertain but also immerse players in dynamic worlds that they'll want to revisit time and time again.


Along with salt and pepper, or macaroni and cheese, detectives and donuts are a cliche that people often associate. So it makes sense that Popiplay has brought the two together in a quirky and exciting slot. This tongue-in-cheek game is colourful, fun to play and offers mystery-solving thrills with every spin.
