Gordon Ramsay is one of the most famous celebrity chefs in the world, not least thanks to his Hell’s Kitchen reality TV series. NetEnt brings the foul-mouthed culinarian to life in its Hell’s Kitchen slot. The latest in an illustrious list of food-themed slots from a variety of slots developers and one of a number of branded online slots in NetEnt’s recent release slate. Though NetEnt didn’t hold back with expletives in its Motörhead slot, the Gordon we see here is more reserved than his TV persona.
That said, he does throw knives, crockery and utensils at the reels in the randomly triggered Ramsay’s Wilds feature, so he does vent some of his frustration as you would expect. Expect Gordon’s dulcet tones to utter snippets of wisdom throughout the game-play, adding that personal touch for which he is famous. Clinking glasses and crockery plays over, along with muzak you might expect to find in Gordon’s restaurant in Vegas.

How to Play
NetEnt retains its classic betting interface for the Hell’s Kitchen slot, with the bet toggle situated to the left of the spin button and accessed via the coin stack. Once you have selected your bet level simply press the spin button to set the reels in motion. Unlike NetEnt’s Fruit Shop Megaways™ slot, another food-based slot game.
Hell’s Kitchen utilises a traditional 20 payline system that awards payouts for matching symbols left-to-right on the game’s set paylines. At any point you can randomly trigger the Ramsay’s Wilds feature, which sees Gordon throw knives, crockery and cookware onto the reels. Whichever symbols they land on transform into Wilds, substituting for all symbols except Scatters. Trigger the Team Challenge Free Spins by landing three of Gordon’s flaming faces anywhere across the reels.
The Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces that make up the game’s lower-paying symbols are styled right from the Hell’s Kitchen restaurant, and payout x0.75-1.5 your stake for landing five across any of the game’s 20 paylines. Gourmet menu selections make up the medium-high paying symbols and give The Finer Reels of Life slot a run for its sumptuous money, with Gordon’s signature Beef Wellington taking top billing and paying out x10 your stake for landing five on a payline. The HK logo acts as the game’s Wild, both during the base game and the bonus feature, and substitutes for all symbols except Scatters. Gordon himself acts as the game’s Scatter symbol, appearing like an on-message devil with a flaming background and menacing eyes.
The Hell’s Kitchen slot features three bonus features, one of which can only be triggered from within the Team Challenge Free Spins.
