Big Chef is a video slot that comes to us from Microgaming and takes place inside the kitchen of a busy French restaurant. This is a 5-reel, 25-payline game that can be played with as little as 15p a spin up to £7.50 per spin. The game has great fun graphics depicting all kinds of things that take place in a cartoon style French restaurant.
Features of Big Chef slot: free spins and rising wilds!
There is an interesting Rising Wilds feature in the main game plus Free Spins. If a wild symbol pops up it will rise up like bread does, to the row just above and remain there for your next spin. This keeps going until all the wilds run out. When playing the Free Spins feature you win 10 free spins and your wins are doubled to a maximum possible payout of 10,000X your stake! The low-value symbols are depicted as yummy dishes like tender steaks and thick hearty soups. Servers and expert chefs represent the high-value symbols. The soundtrack reminds you of a busy vibrant café, with the sound of an accordion in the background playing a French sounding waltz tune.
A new feature is introduced in the Big Chef main game’s Free Spins feature so look for the Cloche scatter on reel 5, which will award you instantly with a free spin. The wild symbol rises upwards, landing on the row above with each spin, which creates a trail going up. If it gets to the highest row, the wilds remain for your next spin. This continues on until no more wild symbols are on the reels.
This feature is called the Rising Wilds, and also applies to the Free Spins, which gets triggered if 3 or more Menu scatters pop up on the reels. When this happens you win 10 fee spins that come with a 2X multiplier. If a wild pops up on row 2 or row 3, it expands up to give you additional opportunities to land even more wild wins when you spin next. The only problem with the Free Spins is you are not able to trigger additional free spins.
Review of Big Chef Slot Machine
Big Chef is a very entertaining and fun medium variance slot game. In the main game you can win up to 466X your stake, but in the Free Spins feature you can win as much as 10,000X your stake! The trick is to have enough Rising Wilds to garner some really big wins. As far as Microgaming slots go, I give this a really high rating but my preference is for a more volatile game like Ariana, which they released at the very same time as Big Chef.
