Those that love Chinese food will be happy to hear that they have yet another game dedicated to this theme, and it comes from Microgaming. Win Sum Dim Sum is an online slot that has a bit of a focus on dim sum and on other similar dishes. You will find them all on the reels, along with recipes that involve octopus, lots of rice and even tea pots. The game’s features give you an expanding wild, scatter symbols and free spins. Payouts can be rather impressive, reaching $100,000 even. It’s a slot with just 9 lines and 5 reels.
Betting and Prizes
The individual lines, only 9 of them available, can be selected as the player needs them, between 1 and 9 active each round. The line bet varies between $0.01 and $10, the maximum amount using 5 coins of $2. You can spend as much as $90 for one round of the game.
To get the really big prize, look out for the wild symbol, which will offer up to 10,000x the line bet, which could mean $100,000 cash in this slot. It’s a very generous top prize, a lot of games giving away a lot less.
Win Sum Dim Sum Slot Features
The wild symbol, which has the Win Sum Dim Sum logo, can be expected to form its own combinations, and it will pay handsomely when it manages this. However, it is also very useful when it is just a substitute. An expanding wild, it will take over entire reels and will try to help with as many wins as possible. The expansion occurs only on reel 3 during the base game, but it happens on reels 2, 3 and 4 during free spins. A wild symbol will not substitute for the scatter symbol, but it will be very helpful with the regular ones.
Speaking of those free spins, to get them you will need to land between 3 and 5 scatter symbols, recognizable thanks to the Teapot image that they show. 2 to 5 of these Teapots also deliver instant wins, which vary from 2 to 100 times the wager of that round. 15 free spins will be activated if the requirements are met, and the chance to retrigger them will be there as well. As I mentioned above, there are three reels which can get expanding wilds during free spins.
Theme & Design
The overall look of Win Sum Dim Sum slot does appear to be Chinese inspired. You have an abstract dark red background image behind the reels, with the logo placed at the top of the screen. Among the symbols, there are low paying Royals at first, and pretty ugly ones at that. Next, we have the high paying symbols, which are the ones that are actually themed. Things like tea pots, dim sum, rice dishes and steaming recipients are shown.
Win Sum Dim Sum seems to be a pretty simple game, not well enough designed considering the year it comes out, but at least it manages to do well feature and payout wise.
