Ninja Chef – Slashing Food For Money!
Anything Ninja related was all the hype in the late 2000’s. Think Fruit Ninja, Ninjump and the likes of those. Soon after, games and movies designed after Ninja themes started to gradually die down and was consequently replaced by the vampire and zombie genre.
Apparently, people loved scary stuff more… With iSoftbet’s Ninja Chef, this theme is back in action, and it is packed with more action than anyone can ask for. As the title suggests, this game involves a little more than just Ninjas. Here you will witness lots of food slashing, as you did expect, the more food you slash, the more money you win!
Ho Ho Tower Mobile Slot Gameplay
Ninja Chef by iSoftBet is a five reel game that is paired with 30 paylines. Of course, being a food game, you will find tons of delicious and appetizing food on your reels. Symbols are made of a variety of Japanese food such as sushi salmon, miso soup, lobsters, beef and even a fat puffer fish. The highest paying symbol in this game and the one you should be looking out for is the portly fish – it pays a staggering 1,000 times your spin wager when you get five of them in a winning payline.
Should you decide to join the slashing with Ninja Chef, you may wager anything from 30p to £6 per spin. High rollers are not going to have a good time here with the limited wagering range, but otherwise, £6 per spin is plenty for average gamers like us.
Here’s some good news for us all – this slot pays extremely frequently. Set as a low variance game, you can expect to easily maintain your bank balance with the frequent payouts. Granted the payout amounts are lower, but so are the risks. You can play this game knowing that you will not be breaking the bank.
Satisfied with the gameplay of Ninja Chef, we proceeded to put the bonus features of this slot under our expert tests. In total, there are two unique bonus features in this game including the Wilds. Speaking of which, the Wilds in this game come in the form of the explosive symbol and as usual, they will replace all other symbols (except scatters) to complete winning paylines.
We are not finished – whenever they appear in the base game, they might even come with multipliers as high as 5x. They also stack on one another, meaning that when you get two or more of the Wilds, you can get up to 25x in multipliers!
Last but not least are the anticipated and profitable extra spins feature. To trigger this feature you will need a minimum of three Ninja Chef symbols anywhere on your reels. Once activated, the game will give you three options and ask you to slash one. Don’t be in a hurry to pick though, more options will be thrown your way and we recommend that you take your time to pick. The following are the details of your extra spins based on the type of food that you slash.
- Salmon Sushi Extra Spins: Truth be told, the Salmon Sushi spins are the riskiest. Here, you will only be rewarded 5 spins but with a 6x win multiplier on each spin. It’s simple really, you either walk home with loads of money, or you go home with nothing
- Steaks Extra Spins: You will be awarded 8 extra spins with win multipliers of 3x. Risks are a bit lower, but you are being short-changed here. We did the math, and to be worth it, the game would have to give you at least 10 spins
- Blowfish Extra Spins: Picking this option will award you with 15 extra spins with NO multiplier. Your only saving grace here will be the expanded Wilds
User Interface And Gaming Experience
We don’t get the opportunity to play many of iSoftBet’s games, but oh boy, they did execute Ninja Chef perfectly. Right from the start we loved the colourful theme of this slot and how animated it was. Visually, all the food symbols in this game has been designed with great resemblance to the real dish and the slicing animations every now and then add tons of action to the gameplay. This game is highly mobile optimised too – it is compatible with all types of mobile devices and runs beautifully on small screens.
The Ninja Chef slot will beautifully and tastefully hit all of your sweet spots at the right time. Usually we would be grumbling to the lack of features in a game, but Ninja Chef has compensated sufficiently in other places. We loved how players could choose for themselves on which set of extra spins to take based on their preference and gaming strategy. Move past that and you will be treated with tons of win multipliers that may result in payouts up to a staggering 263x your spin wager.
