Chinese Kitchen is an online slot machine game created by Microgaming. It is known for its highly unique art style, reflecting an eccentric Asian chef in a kitchen, as well as for being one of the few slots games that allows payouts for none matching sequences.
The game system is three reels and eight pay lines, and is also unique and unusual in its layout. All in all Chinese Kitchen is a game that stands apart for taking many risks in its design, and ultimately will be a refreshing experience for those looking for something a little different.
The game can be played for real money or for fun, and is available on home computer, laptop, mobile phone and laptop. Due to the bold nature of its graphics the game is perfect for mobile phones that have a smaller screen. Download the game now and give it a try yourself.
The traditional rules of a slot machine still apply to Chinese Kitchen, meaning that a player must make an initial bet, select the number of lines to bet on, and spin the reels in hopes of making a winning match.
The difference in this game comes in what is referred to as an ingredient system. This means that the game allows matches for food ingredients that would apparently go well together in a meal. For example, two crab symbols may match with a roasted duck symbol, and will payout reasonably high. This comes into play extra well in this game, being as matches are allowed to occur in any direction in the play area, which is another unique aspect of the play style. Hence, diagonal, up, down, left, and right are all play lines, with matches being formed for all directions during any one spin. This can get confusing, but makes a lot of sense after getting used to the idea.
The symbols of the game are all, as mentioned, ingredients, with the turtle being the most valuable, and offering huge payouts. Octopus is the least valuable, and although matching with many other ingredients, is itself not a valuable symbol. Some of the other symbols include starfish, fish, caterpillar, snail, and duck.
Interestingly Chinese kitchen has no extra bonus features or symbols of any kind. There are no wild symbols, no scatter bonus, and no mini-games; the whole experience is only what can be achieved with the multi-directional play system. The only extra control the player has is raising or lowering the bet lines, which will eliminate the diagonal and up or down play system.
The real money casino bet may also obviously be raised or lowered between spins. In order to make these adjustments, see the buttons located at the bottom of the screen, which control betting lines and bet amount. Note also the bet max button, which will set all bets to the maximum for the next spin. There is also an all lines button, which will open up all betting lines and raise the bet accordingly. It is important to keep in mind that the more bet lines open the greater the chance of making a matching sequence, but the higher the initial upfront bet required.
