Ninja Chef Slot
The Ninja Chef in the title of the slot looks for all the world like any other Ninja, with the trademark black outfit, including the mask and the samurai sword strapped across his back. However, the little white hat on top of his head tells you that he also likes to cook! This slot is effectively a visit to his restaurant where you’ll find a wide variety of different food stuff on the reels. The restaurant is clearly big on seafood, with sushi, lobster, a fish and seafood soup on the reels, although meat eaters are catered for too with a nice looking steak. The highlight of the game is the free spins round and you’ll also find multiplying wilds and a scatter symbol.
The slot has an uncomplicated look, the reels having a simple peach background which the symbols sit upon. In comparison to many slots found today, this slot is a little weak graphically, many of the symbols simply drawn and lacking in animation. The only highpoint is the Ninja himself who is drawn in a cartoon style. It’s only when you hit the feature round that the slot really takes off – the graphics here much improved and bringing the game to life. Accompanying the slot is a very apt soundtrack to the Ninja Chef theme.
Setup and Play for Ninja Chef Slot
Like the majority of iSoftbet slot you’ll find five reels each with three rows. This particular game has 30 win lines, although you have the option of playing fewer if you choose. You’ll also choose the coin value and the line bet amount (between 1 and 10) which will set your total stake for each spin.
To win you’ll need to land at least three consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The highest paying of the symbols is the puffer fish and you’ll win 1,000 coins if landing this symbol five times in a row. This is by far the biggest paying symbol, the steak and the sushi coming in next at 300 coins. The seafood soup and the lobster pay 120 coins for a full house and the symbols are completed by the playing card symbols from Jack to Ace.
The title symbol of the slot is a scatter symbol which will give a win if appearing three or more times across the reels. Should you receive 5 scatters you’ll win 25x your total bet, while wins of 10x and 5x will be gained for 4 or 3 scatters respectively.
The wild symbol is the word ‘wild’ written in flames. This is not your usual wild, as although it will replace any other symbol at the slot (apart from the scatter and bonus) you’ll find multipliers attached on occasions. There are four different wilds – one without a multiplier, the others with a 2x, 3x and 5x multipliers. This means that any win gained using the wild will be subject to that multiplier.
The final symbol in the game is the Ninja Chef himself. This is another scatter symbol which will activate the bonus free spins round if appearing three or more times across the reels.
Ninja Chef Slot Bonus Round
This is certainly a free spins round with a difference. You’ll start by heading to an arcade style game where various items from the menu will fly through the air, you pointing your mouse to slice them in two (if you’ve ever played the popular game ‘Fruit Ninja’ you’ll know exactly how this works). Whichever symbol you slice three times will give you a different free spins round. If you slice three fish in two you’ll 15 free spins with no multiplier. Three sliced steaks give you 8 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Finally, 3 sliced sushi gives you 5 free spins with a 6x multiplier. This actually adds an element of strategy to the feature as you may have your eye on one of the rounds. As an added bonus during the feature, each free spin will see expanded wilds taking up an entire reel.
Ninja Chef Slot Conclusion
This is certainly a slot with two halves. If I was to base my judgement of the slot on the action on the reels themselves, I’d say it was something of a disappointment. However, once you land the feature the slot jumps into action and offers a truly original game. This is a feature that you’ll certainly want to strive to land again and again and changes the game from an average one to a good one.
