Sushi Bar Game Information
Betsoft Gaming continue to release unique themed games and their latest is no exception. Sushi Bar is a Japanese-themed online slot focusing on Sushi. It is based in a Sushi Bar and there is a 3D animated character on screen throughout gameplay – Chef Haru, who performs various actions for our amusement while spinning the reels. The slot is also accompanied with oriental background music which really adds to the theme of the game.
Of course, this is not the first food-themed online slot machine to be released by Betsoft Gaming. Another popular game is the Mamma Mia slot and this contains many more bonus features than Sushi Bar does – which we found got pretty boring after a few spins as it lacked the vast bonus features we have come to expect from every 3D slot from Betsoft.
Sushi Bar Gameplay & Symbols
The Sushi Bar slot machine is available at all online casinos powered by Betsoft Gaming. It contains a total of 5 reels and 25 paylines. The coin denominations available are 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.25 and 0.50 and between one and ten coins can be bet on every payline. This means the game can be played on all paylines for a minimum bet of $2.50, up to a maximum bet of $62.50, each spin.
Not only are there less bonus features in this slot than usual, but there are also less symbols, which helps make it pretty straightforward. There is a Wild (Soy Sauce) and Scatter (Fan) as well as Teapot, Chopping Baord, and Sushi Plate symbols. These are joined by Ace to Ten symbols, however rather than using plain old boring playing card icons, Betsoft have designed them in the shape of a Sushi Plate and each is very detailed. The highest value standard symbol is the Teapot with five paying out 1,000 credits, while the Ten playing card symbol is the lowest value and five pay out just 20 credits.
Sushi Bar Bonus Features
As we mentioned above, Sushi Bar lacks the bonus features which we have come to expect from Betsoft Gaming 3D slots. Usually there are four or five features in every slot and perhaps we have just been spoilt, but Sushi Bar only features a Wild and a Free Spins mode – though granted the Free Spins mode often proves to be very rewarding.
Wild – Let’s face it, almost every Betsoft Gaming slot contains a Wild symbol, so what is so special about the Wild in Sushi Bar? Aside from substituting for all other symbols in the game in order to achieve the highest payout possible, all wins the Wild contributes to are doubled – and this occurs very frequently which is a pleasant surprise.
Free Spins – In order for the free spins feature to begin players first need to land three or more Scatter (Soy Sauce) symbols, though everytime you fall short and only land two you win 50 credits. Should you be lucky enough to land four or five Scatter symbols the number of free spins increases, as follows:
2 Scatter Symbols: 50 credits
3 Scatter Symbols: 8 free spins
4 Scatter Symbols: 12 free spins
5 Scatter Symbols: 20 free spins
The opportunity to receive 20 free spins makes this one of the best free spins features of any Betsoft Gaming slot machine to be released yet, and we found that even three Scatter symbols land pretty often to keep player engaged.
