Microgaming rolled out a Chinese-themed video slots named Win Sum Dim Sum with 9 paylines and 5 reels. Win Sum Dim Sum, captures the essence of Chinese food culture in one spicy package.
If you’re wondering what Dim Sum is it’s one of China’s most popular foods. The ingredients in this famous dish contains red lotus rice, har gow, chicken feet and shao mai, the same symbols can be will appear across the reels along with generic card icons from 10 to Ace.
There are a few aspects of the game that worth a spin for me; it offers a house edge of 4% a return to player (RTP) of 96% and it pays a massive top jackpot prize of £30,000. If you’re in the mood for a bit of Chinese food I’m sure this one will get the old taste buds tingling. The game is playable on all mobile devices and PC, it in the free mode or for real cash.
The wild symbol is the Bamboo Steamer, when it shows a winning combination it replaces the other icons adjacent to it except the scatter.
During the main game if it shows up on the centre reel it expands granting you an entire wild reel.
It goes without saying the icon that’s responsible for the fat payouts during the base game is the wild.
The biggest cash prize that can be won here is 1,222 your stake.
The scatter symbol is the teapot, when 3 or more of them show, it triggers the Free Spins feature rewarding you with 15 free spins.
The free spins mode can be re-triggered if an additional 3 or more scatters pop up during the free spins-up to 30 free spins can be won during this feature.
Since there are no multiplier wins attached to each free spin, the wild expands when it appears on reels 2, 3 or 4.
I’ve managed a win of up to 50x my stake but I have to say, it doesn’t come around much.
The only real minus for me is for Win Sum Dim Sum is the fact that the theme not so impressive.
However, as said, it makes a great starter slot; you will be able to learn the basics of slot machines through it before you continue your gaming experience.
Win Sum Dim Sum may not be the only first Chinese food themed slot on the net, but it is (at the moment, at least), the most outstanding of them.
