The regular symbols are all delicious fruit.
The lucky 7 scatters trigger free spins and the heart-shaped macaroons trigger respins, while the card and parfait bonus symbols activate unique bonuses.
Doki Doki Parfait is unusually feature-packed for a 3-reel title with free spins, respins, and a couple of intriguing bonus rounds.
When 3 respin symbols appear on a payline, they will activate a heart-shaped respin token above the reels and trigger a respin. This gives you the chance to land more respin tokens, and if you activate 3 tokens, you will enter the free spins or the card bonus round.
As mentioned above, you can trigger free spins via the respins bonus. Alternatively, the bonus round will also trigger if you land 3 scatter symbols on the reels. You will get to choose from 3 free spins options. If you retrigger the feature by landing more scatters, you can select from 7, 12, or 14 starting spins with a possible extra 6, 5, or 4 free spins. Landing an ice cream bowl symbol while this feature is active will give you an extra 2 free spins and launch the Parfait Bonus mini-game. One of the waitresses will present you with a delicious-looking parfait. You tap on the desert to eat it, and you will claim an instant prize.
Aside from the respins, you can also trigger the card bonus when one card symbol appears on the reels. Here a waitress will have you choose one of 4 cards that will give you a cash prize or a scatter to help you trigger free spins.
Doki Doki Parfait slot signals that Microgaming is here to stay with a unique and exciting gameplay experience. This is an unexpected and bold effort from the iGaming giant and capitalises on the rising popularity of Anime culture. The game’s visuals are as well-drawn as any high-end manga, particularly the girls who have animated reactions to your wins.
As a 3-reel slot, this differs greatly from the classic Break da Bank which only has a wild symbol as its sole bonus feature and a cash-heavy theme. As far as similar games go, there aren’t many with an anime theme, but if you’re a fan of the combination of cuteness and confectionaries, Sugar Parade might be the title for you with its cute-faced baked goodies as symbols.
I got a lot of enjoyment from the gameplay, particularly how both the card bonus and respins helped me activate the free spins bonus round that had yet another surprise hidden within it. One of the more enticing aspects of this title is it’s large top wining potential of $1,000 000.
