Win Sum Dim Sum Slot Machine
It seems there must be an Oriental food theme constantly flying around at the moment in the offices of Microgaming. Clearly takeaway fans, the game design team there are following up on the insane themed So Much Sushi slot with an equally pretty and very much just as weird new 5 reel online game which hopes to do the same for Chinese cooking in the online slot world as the last creation did for Japanese cuisine. Maybe there is an office bet as to how many food types they can get into games this year over at Microgaming?
Win Sum Dim Sum sounds a bit like you may hit or you may not, which might be fitting for a medium variance game with only 15 pay-lines rather than a 243 or more ways pay format. Though, quite what is fitting or not on a game themed around one of China’s favourite snack dishes, Dim Sum, is beyond even us so we better have a play and find out what all this is about. Will we be leaving a tip? Or heading over to the nearest burger joint?
This game takes place loosely in a Chinese restaurant, I chose the word loosely on purpose as sadly the reel set is so big, no matter how good the backdrop is you simply won’t see much of it as it is largely obscured. It’s a small thing though as the vibrant red’s and golds couldn’t possibly leave you in any doubt that this is a Chinese slot, even without the pay symbols and music.
Reel icons reinforce the theme well, with Har-Gow, Lotus rice, chicken feet (gross we know, and Shao-Mai all making an appearance, backed up by a traditional low-key Chinese theme tune as the backing music and some cymbal based sound effects. The visuals aren’t out of this world but they are solid, and players who enjoyed the Sushi game will find a similar level of quality at this banquet table. They have sadly used playing card icons for the low pay symbols, but, given nearly everybody does, I’m not going to be avoiding this restaurant for that reason alone.
With a 0.09 to 22.50 credit bet arrangement, this isn’t really one for high stakes players, which is almost a shame as the game has a little spice to it. With medium volatility and an RTP percentage of nearly 97%, this can clearly deliver some serious cash wins to the lucky player who hits the right combinations.
Your main weapon is the famed Chinese bamboo steamer, which Dim Sum is traditionally served in. This symbol acts as the game’s sole wild, but don’t dismay, as with the item it represents, this wild is what really brings all the ingredients together. On reels 1/2/4 & 5 it is a standard fixed wild, but on reel 3 it becomes an expanded wild, having that happen on possibly the best reel for it, can really rack up those wins. In the free spins round, it can expand on any of the three middle reels, truly appetizing!
If the base game is the starter, the free spins on this game serve as the main meal, where fortune may favor you with up to 3333x your bet vs 1222 in the normal game round, that’s the real deal, no fortune cookie fables here! You get 15 spins for your three scatters in this game, they can’t be retriggered but we think that is more than fair given the potential culinary delights on offer.
As with all Microgaming titles, this is perfectly produced and plays well on all devices, it’s optimised for both desktop and mobile play and the reels and effects flow seamlessly. It’s a real Goldilocks slot this one, plays brilliantly, has a unique theme and offers plenty of real cash rewards.
