Online slot review: Wild Hot Wasabi
If you like sushi and you like online slots, then we’ve got a game we know you’ll love – Wild Hot Wasabi, fresh from Lightning Box! With its slick Japanese theme and fun cartoon design, it’s a slot that’s bursting with innovation and energy – and wildness and heat, if its name is to be believed. If you’re someone who’s put too much wasabi on their sushi before, you’ll know just how hot it can get, so expect just as much fire from this slot… with perhaps less damage to your taste buds this time round.
Putting you right in the centre of the action from the word go, Wild Hot Wasabi takes place in a Japanese restaurant, so we hope you’re hungry for big wins! It’s also a slot that doesn’t take itself too seriously, so if you’re looking for full-on entertainment with a little humour as well, you’ve come to exactly the right place.
As far as symbols go, you’ll find a range of Japanese-inspired icons, from snakes and octopuses to puffer fish and two different wilds as well. If the idea of two wilds is new to you, then get ready for the reels to blow your mind, because this is no ordinary game area. While Wild Hot Wasabi does offer a 5 reel format, its middle reel is a game area all its own, with 16 spaces for symbols in a 4×4 formation. That’s the Reelfecta system at work, and it’s one that’ll give you 1,296 ways to win, and a top payout of 2,128x your original bet, or $212,800 in cash! Add to that respins, scatters and multipliers, along with the two wilds, and you’ll see why this slot isn’t just hot, it’s wild as well!
Want to order from this deliciously thrilling menu? Then a bet anywhere between $0.20 and $100 will get those reels rolling! Start by looking out for either of the two wilds – the man wild, that’ll show up on either reels 2 or 4, or the wasabi wild, that’ll show up on the expanded middle reel. Both substitute for other symbols in order to create winning combos, so the more wilds you find on every spin, the more exciting your slots play will be!
There’s more fire where that came from – in the form of the hot bonus logo. Find 6 of these anywhere on the reels, and you’ll instantly trigger respins for yourself. Once you do, the slot will select one of the 4×4 positions from the middle reel, and frame it in yellow. This frame will move around during your respins round, either bringing up an extinguisher, or the wasabi wild. Get the wild wasabi icon, and it’ll instantly become sticky, giving you another respin in the process. Get up to 12 of these, and you’ll earn a megaspin for yourself, which will see all 16 spaces on the middle reel covered by wilds.
It’s not just the wasabi wild that’ll bring you extra luck during the respins round – the man wild will too. Find this symbol on reel 2 during your respins, and you’ll find a multiplier of up to 10x at the same time, helping to increase your winning total. Now that’s wild!
If you’ve got a taste for winning, satisfy your appetite with Wild Hot Wasabi. Who knows, it could bring you just the jackpot you’ve been craving!
Happy Spinning 🙂
