About So Much Sushi
Microgaming’s So Much Sushi might pack in some clever behind the scenes thinking, but at the front end this is nothing less than a slot that is administered in a classic casino look. There is a slight far Eastern tinge to the graphics creating a cohesive look that fits in with the game-play. The animations are fast and furious and there are plenty of sign posts and different banners and announcements that help you out with the action on the reels.
Musically So Much Sushi is actually a little more reminiscent of Microgaming slots like Break Da Bank Again and even a little suggestive of Mega Fortune. It moves away from the sombre, dull tones that you can experience in Thunderstruck II and the Untamed series of games giving you a club style sonic palette that features high end pianos, sophisticated drum fills and a very upbeat mood. This is complimented by the win sounds on the reels that punctuate and accentuate the game-play in perfect fashion.
The base game in So Much Sushi plays out over a standard five reel casino slot set up with twenty five lines of action. This uses a fixed grid set up where you do not have the option to adjust the number of lines on which you are betting, but you are allowed to vary your coin size to find the perfect wager amount. The game features two special symbols in the form of the soy sauce scatter that holds the key to the free spin round and the signature wild, which operates in the normal fashion.
There is a special mechanism at play in So Much Sushi. This is the split symbol feature. Any of the sushi symbols on the reels can appear in special split symbols that can act as if they are actually a number of symbols – between one and five – in one. This gives you the ability to make combinations that can feature as many as twenty five symbols in one string running from left to right on the base game grid. Needless to say this can pay out some absolutely whopping prizes that have the ability to fire up your bankroll in spectacular fashion.
In addition to the split symbols there is a rather exciting little bonus round on So Much Sushi in the form of the free spin round. This is activated when you hit three of the special soy sauce scatters anywhere on the reels. Here you’re first invited to pick a free spin round from a second screen sub game where you have a choice of spins and max prizes. The more spins you take, the lower the max prizes – and vice versa – so make sure you choose carefully selecting between a high variance style and a safer risk.
