In the online gaming industry’s constant search for slots to appeal to wider and wider groups of players one of the most obvious may have been staring them in the face for many years before they finally caught on. For a clue, you only need to look to the name of the traditional game that’s been enjoyed long before the internet was invented – the fruit machine.
But now the penny has well and truly dropped and more and more food-themed slots are starting to appear with a distinct appeal to the older generation of online gamers. Here’s a guide to four that more than deserve a Michelin star.
This game’s unusual in that it’s a 5-reeler but with 9 line pay lines and the ways that you can win are a little out of the ordinary too. For example if you can make a whole ice cream by combining cone, ice cream and topping you’ll go into a bonus round. For an even bigger chance to win, put together a cherry pie from the ingredients and, best of all, you get to throw pies at people in the section that gives the game its name.
For an alternative to the classic pay line slot. Why not try Snack Time? A game exclusive to the 888casino slots lobby which also features food favourites like Freaky Fruit, Fruit Shop and Oktoberfest Spins. Unusually for a slots game it has five reels but no pay lines. That’s because prizes are awarded according to the combinations achieved in the vending machine-style layout. There are various levels of these combinations featuring symbols like lollipops, crisps and cola – with the lollipops leading to the biggest prizes.
The ultimate level is the Super-Mega Combo which occurs when you get four or more standard combos in one spin and means three free re-spins. Plus, there are two active jackpots too.
Wasabi San Slot
A must for fans of sushi and Japanese delicacies in general, the Wasabi San Slot is pretty hot stuff indeed. It features a range of different symbols including sushi rolls, salmon roe and even the fiery Japanese drink, sake. The one to really look out for when you’re playing is the Sushi Chef who is the wild and can take the place of any of the other symbols apart from the Wasabi San scatter icon and the Puffer Fish bonus symbols.
Get three of the latter in any combination on active pay lines and this sometimes deadly delicacy will get you into the Fish Market Bonus Game with the potential to boost your winnings.
Maybe closest to the original fruit machine but given a fresh new twist is the Fruit Smoothies slot. It features bright colours and exciting sound effects as well as fun and fruity icons. It also harks back to the old school machines with retro features like holds, nudges and “shifta” features all designed to make playing a more fun and interactive experience.
There’s also a fixed jackpot as well a free spins bonus game and a gamble feature that’s activated after a win. So there you have it, a four-course meal of deliciously fun slots – and, if you win big on any of them, why not treat yourself to a slap-up meal for real?
