There are many different slots available, bite-sized games, snack-sized slots and even a full blown feast of a fruity, but you won’t have enjoyed a sumptuous supper quite like what the Big Chef slot is set to serve when it is released across Microgaming casinos in May.
Big Chef offers 5×3 reels with 15 fixed paylines on each spin and spinning the reels won’t set you back a small fortune, with spins available from just 0.15 per spin. Add into that the fact that you could take home a 75,000 coin jackpot and there’s a lot on this menu to digest.
What makes this pokie so appealing however is not just its French restaurant theme, nor the delicious dishes that populate the wheels, but the number of innovative features, some of them never seen on a slot before, which form part of the pokie machine.
First up is a brand new base game bonus. The base game free spin. Land a Cloche scatter symbol on the fifth reel at any point in the base game and you get a free spin immediately.
You can land more free spins by landing 3 or more Stove scatters across the reels. If you manage to do so then you’ll win 10 free spins, which cannot be retriggered, but which do come with a guaranteed 2x multiplier meaning that all the wins you have in free spins are immediately doubled.
When you land free spins, or the base game free spin, then you could also see another feature, rising wilds. When a wild lands on row two or three across the reels, it will turn other symbols wild and slowly rise up the reels on subsequent spins before disappearing off the top of the reel.
This new feature ensures more chances of a winning payline on every free spin.
