When playing Stumpy McDoodles slot, you have a pay table with 10 standard symbols. The symbols are playing cards - Ace, Jack, Queen, King, and 10. There’s also different characters and items - a jug of ale, a shamrock, Penny McDoodles, and Stumpy McDoodles as well as the wild symbol. There’s also the pot of gold which is the scatter symbol.
The playing card 10 has the lowest multiplier - if you land 3x of this symbol, you get a bet per line multiplier of 10x. Alternatively, Stumpy McDoodles is the highest paying standard symbol in the basic game. When landing 5x of this symbol, you get a bet per line multiplier of 250x.

This video slot is packed with bonus features including random wilds, Stumpy McDoodles free spins, the rainbow respin, and unique Foxify feature.
Firstly, there are the random wilds. These can activate randomly on any basic spin. During the spin, a pot of lucky gold appears and will give a random multiplier between 2x and 5x. Also, between 3 and 8 wild symbols are added to the reels! The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatter.
Next we have the Rainbow Respin. This is awarded if you land 2 (but not 3) scatter symbols on the reels, during the base game. This will lock 4 of the reels, and respin one reel that doesn’t have a scatter symbol - this is effectively giving you a second chance at winning free spins.
We think the best Stumpy McDoodles bonus feature is the scatter symbol and free spins. If you get 3x scatter symbols during the base game, you are awarded 5 Stumpy McDoodles free spins! The free spins are played at the bet value that was active when the spins were won.
During the bonus rounds, there is a coin collection feature. Collecting lucky coins will increase the multipliers, unlock shifting wilds and additional free spins!
Finally, the free spins also have a progressive multiplier feature. The multiplier starts at 1x at the beginning of the bonus round and can increase as the feature progresses. During the spins, a random pot of gold with a multiplier can appear. This is added to the pool and then all the multipliers are added together at the end of the free spins.
The Stumpy McDoodles RTP is 96.26% - this seems to be consistent with other Foxium games like Lucky Bakery that all have an RTP above the expected average of 95%. This Irish inspired slot offers medium volatility - The biggest wins will come from the respins, and the free spin games.
