Here I introduce the Win Sum Dim Sum Slot game. You would have to be Inspector Clouseau not to see where this is heading. Microgaming have clearly enjoyed a fair few Chinese meals at their development HQ in the Isle of Man, for the legendary slots developers have turned their gastronomic favourites into this enjoyable five reel, 9 payline online slot.
Hang on…is this the same developer that brought us So Much Sushi and So Much Candy? We’re beginning to notice a theme! Well, this Dim Sum sure looks tasty, but as the saying goes the proof of the dim sum is in the eating.
Microgaming have gone to town in what can only be described as an ode to dim sum. Delicious-looking steamed dumplings and dishes of various kinds form our high symbols across the reels, while Oriental-styled 10s through Aces make up our low-paying symbols. The gameplay is accompanied by a soft Chinese soundtrack that will have us seeking Zen from the comfort of our dim sum. The Game Logo Wild, emblazoned on a stack of bamboo steaming pots, is the game’s Wild symbol and expands like a dim sum in a belly to substitute for all other symbols and complete winning paylines.
But wait…are we really going to take away winnings in steamed Chinese dumplings? No, not really. All our winnings will be formed from coins as normal. Phew! Win Sum Dim Sum‘s betting interface is funnily enough not in our faces. Clicking on the coins tab brings up a box containing our betting options such as lines played, coins per bet and coin value. Our minimum bet is therefore €/$/£0.01 while our maximum is €/$/£22.50. Not a high stakes game, which is kind of ironic when I think of some of the dim sums I’ve eaten in some Chinese restaurants I’ve been in.
While the Win Sum Dim Sum Slot racks up an impressive RTP of 95%, it is in the game’s main bonus feature that we will become true slots masters. When we land three ornate Teapot Scatters – presumably with which we will wash down our dim sum – we trigger the Free Spins bonus feature that will see us earn 15 free shots at the dumplings. It might sound like the only way to pass the time if you’re in the navy, but it’s our best shot at big wins here. The good news, unless it’s the navy game we’re talking about, is that the re-spins can be re-triggered.
All in all a potential 75,000 coin jackpot is not to be sneezed at, though that probably depends whether or not we’re having some Szechuan sauce with our dim sum. And after rejoicing the fact our winnings won’t be paid in dumplings, we may well find ourselves a little peckish. Do Microgaming also own a chain of
