Hell’s Kitchen is a popular TV show that has been broadcasted since 2005 and is still running. And that TV show also spawned a very popular restaurant in Las Vegas. The TV show is presented by Gordon Ramsay and he also owns the restaurant as one of the best known chefs.
In 2014 NetEnt released a new slot game with this theme, Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen.
Hell’s Kitchen comes with 20 lines on 5 reels, each 3 symbols high. Symbols consist of several popular dishes, like the Beef Wellington, which always plays a big part in the TV show and regular slot symbols. It also features wild symbols on all reels and scatter symbols on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5.
Before or after any normal spin this feature might randomly trigger. Between 5 and 7 random wild symbols are added to the reels after which you are paid your possible winnings.
They have really made a nice looking feature with this, with pans, knives or plates being thrown to the spots on the reels. And a voice over by Gordon Ramsay.
Getting 3 or 4 scatter symbols will award 10 or 15 free spins.
Before free spins start pick if you think the red team or the blue team will win the most money.
After this two reel sets will come into play. One for the red team and one for the blue team. Each with 5 reels, 2o lines.
Below the reels special upgrades will appear in red or blue. This might be multipliers or random wild symbols. These bonuses are added to the reel set of the same color.
After the free spins end you will get the total reward from both reel sets. But if the team you picked to win collected the most money, or of there is a tie, you will get an additional bonus game.
Pick menus to reveal 2, 3 or 5 times your bet or multipliers of x2 or x3. Or X symbols. Keep picking until you find three X symbols. After this you are awarded the total sum found multiplied by the multipliers found.
I really like Hell’s Kitchen slot game. I used to watch the show, which I don’t anymore. But it does make the slot game feel very familiar.
Ramsay’s Wild Feature seems to appear pretty often and most of the time will award wins of 20 or 30 times your bet. Sometimes even more.
And also the free spins feature is a great bonus. It plays on two slot games and you will win the amounts from both of them, which isn’t always the case with these bonuses. The extra picking bonus is also a nice addition, but if you don’t trigger this, the free spins are fun enough.
Overall I really think a lot of players will enjoy Hell’s Kitchen and I think it’s a great addition to the NetEnt slot catalog.
