The wombat says: Yum yum Dim Sum – this Wombat’s favourite! For those of you who’ve never heard of it, Dim Sum is a style of Chinese food that’s served in bite-sized portions in small baskets – not dissimilar to Spanish tapas.
But there’s no paella to be found in these tiny little baskets (for big baskets head to our Sweet Harvest slot machine by the way). Oh no no no. These ingredients are far more interesting and usually include stuff like Pork Siu Mai (pork with fish roe), Har Gow (steamed dumpling prawns), Fung Zao (fried steamed chicken feet) Shao Mai (garlic and crab) and other yummy dumpling-type treats.
Hailing from the Canton province, chowing down on a spot of Dim Sum is a weekly ritual for families in Southern China, and in Hong Kong too -which is the city that first made Dim Sum famous.
So will you scoop bite-sized wins in this Microgaming slot? Is it as steamy as the Playboy Slot? Or will your jackpot be more of a main course kind of affair? Open those baskets, and let’s play!
Microgaming have launched this Chinese cuisine themed slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines. OK, the graphics aren’t best we’ve seen, but that’s not everything in a slot, and the symbols on the reels really do look good enough to eat. There’s a calming soundtrack to the game that’s not a million miles away from the ditty in the Koi Princess slot. However, that’s got a Japanese theme: they’re ain’t no sushi in Win Sum Dim Sum!
They start with the usual playing card icons 10, J, Q, K & A as your low pay symbols, while the dumpling, the chicken feet, the rice parcel and the won-ton make up your tasty-looking high ballers – with the dumpling being the real delicacy on the dining table. Land 5 of these delicious Dim Sums and you’ll get 1000 coins to add to your coffers.
The Wild in Win Sum Dim Sum slot is the Bamboo Steamer basket. And aside from its usual job to substitute for all other symbols on the reels, they also expand from time to time during game play. Land a Wild symbol on reel 3 along a winning payline, and the little beauty will expand to fill all the reel’s positions – which means more combos and possible cash for you!
And it gets even better, you Wombat Foodies; during the Free Spins Bonus the Bamboo Steamer Wild will also come in handy by expanding across reels 2, 3 and 4.
Scatter and Free Spins
Land 3x or more of the Teapot symbols anywhere at all on the reels, and you’ll set off the Free Spins Bonus feature giving you a generous 15 extra gos. The Free Spins can also be re-triggered (which is always a bonus as far as we’re concerned), by getting another 3x or more of the Scatter Teapots during the round.
If you’re in the mood for a Chinese takeaway, then the game will definitely get your taste buds tingling – this wombat had to start spinning after his dinner! Overall we like Microgaming’s Win Sum Dim Sum slot -the lack of Free Spin Multiplier is made up for by the Expanding Wilds in the bonus round, and we can’t help but love the tinkly harp soundtrack. Grab your chopsticks, it’s time head to the Far East!
Wombat score: 3.5/5
