The symbols are rather basic and boy do they make your mouth water. If you play a fair number of slot games from Microgaming then you’ll be familiar with its style. The background is a decorated red surface, not spectacular in the least. Symbols include some Chinese delicacies you’re probably used to ordering after a night in the pub. They include sushi and dum sum, chicken feet and Lotus rice. All delightful I’m sure though I’m more of a fish and chips and steak and kidney pudding guy myself.
We also get the ten to Ace playing card symbols. At least they get into the theme a little bit by having a Chinese symbol included, for example the King has a dragon on it.
The wild symbol in this game is a stack of dum sums. A tasty symbol indeed as it has the ability to substitute for other symbols to help get you some winning combinations. That may well be completing wins for the lower paying symbols but that at least keeps your account balance ticking over. Look out for the wild symbol appearing on the third reel when playing the base game. If it makes an appearance there then it will expand to fill all the positions on that reel if doing so will create a winning combination for you.
It isn’t able to substitute for the teapot symbol which is the scatter in this game and helps get you into the bonus game.
This is a fairly straightforward game to play. All the control buttons are down at the bottom of the screen so it’s easy to set the stake for each spin. There’s also an autoplay button that can be used if you fancy a break from the screen. Perhaps that Chinese takeaway you ordered has just arrived. The game also has a paytable which is ideal for finding out more about the rules of the game and how much each winning combination pays. Have some free games too and you’ll be full of knowledge about this slot before risking real cash on it.
Spin those Dishes
Three or more of the teapot scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger the free spins bonus round. You are given a total of 15 free spins to play with which is a reasonable amount to be given. It can get better because if three or more scatter symbols appear again, then that number is re-triggered.
There’s no multiplier attached to any wins you get which is a shame but you can’t have everything can you? Look out for the wild symbol though as during the free spins round they can expand on the second, third and fourth reels.
The style of this game really does resemble a fair share of Microgaming releases. That’s not a bad thing though, if you have a successful formula then stick to it I guess. It’s entertaining to play, the theme is a good one, though you might need to get some wins to pay for the Chinese meals you’ll be craving. The expanding wild can certainly help get you winning combinations, especially in the bonus game so this is definitely worth giving a go.
