Ninja Chef is a mobile slot powered by iSoftBet that has quite a unique theme. It’s a part-ninja, part-Asian cuisine theme, and you’ll see what we mean by that as soon as you log in to play. The graphics are above-average, and the theme stands out quite a bit, but the gameplay is top-notch with a high-action approach that’s perfect for the shorter sessions that players tend to have in mobile games.
The format uses with Ninja Chef has five reels and three rows, like most video slots, but there are 30 paylines, which is somewhat atypical. Coins start at just £0.01 apiece, so you’ll only need £0.30 per spin with all paylines activated, and that’s not exactly breaking the bank. There are other coin sizes and the ability to bet up to 10 coins per payline, so higher stakes players will have plenty of betting options as well.
While the game has a solid hit-rate on its own, the wild multiplier feature adds a lot of value to that hit-rate. Wilds show up, and wins that use these wilds can be affected by multipliers listed on the wild symbols worth up to 5x. What’s more is that you can get more than one wild multiplier in the same winning combination, and they multiply together to give you really big wins. For example, a 5x multiplier with a 3x multiplier wouldn’t add together to give you 8x; instead, they would multiply together to give you an incredible 15x multiplier.
Five of the blowfish earns a 1,000x payout, the best in the game. Five of the steak pays 300x, and so does five of the fish wrapped around rice (ie: sushi). The bowl of soup and lobster both pay 120x for five of a kind. The A, K, Q and J symbols are the minor symbols in Ninja Chef, and they pay 80x to 60x for five. Note that all of these can be hit with the multipliers listed above to give you even larger wins.
Three or more of the ninja wearing the chef’s hat gets you a bonus feature. You’ll get between five and 15 free spins, and you’ll get a wild extender feature during these free spins that put more wilds on the reels and that give you more value.
Overall, Ninja Chef is a really creative mobile slot that has gameplay that’s perfect for the mobile interface. When you add in the free spins and huge wild multipliers, it’s easy to see that this is a title that has action written all over it, even if the theme itself is a little atypical.
