Amaya Gaming Serves up Sushi Express Jackpot Slot
Going with a surprisingly strong trend in online slots, Amaya Gaming presents a five-reel 30-payline video slot with an oriental sushi theme. The quirky culinary reel spinner has been given the fitting title: Sushi Express.
One of the most appealing features is the Sushi Express jackpot, which is progressive and so can accumulate to become a rather hefty sum given enough time. But the progressive Sushi Express jackpot isn’t this slot’s only major payout; the top standard Sushi Express jackpot is 1 000 times the base wager, which can total up to 10 000 credits if the largest possible bet has been placed.
Other items to lookout for beyond the Sushi Express jackpot are wild and scatter symbols, as well as a special Sushi Express bonus round with pick-em feature.
The Tasty Sushi Express Jackpot Theme
Amaya has gone all out with the theme for Sushi Express Jackpot, which is a colourful feast for the eyes – especially if they’re fans of Japanese cuisine. Symbols to expect on the Sushi Express Jackpot reels include various sushi dishes – such as Temarizushi, Mazikushi, Gunkanmaki and Nigirizushi – as well as a bottle of soy sauce, some wasabi, crabs, shrimp, puffer fish, and tuna.
The Sushi Express Jackpot reels are clearly set in a modern sushi bar, with a conveyor belt bearing various dishes encircling the slot.
The soundtrack of Sushi Express Jackpot, meanwhile, complements the graphics very nicely, with kung fu film sound effects and oriental melodies playing in the background as the reels are spinning.
The Sushi Express Jackpot Octopus Chef
The wild symbol in Sushi Express Jackpot is the large purple octopus, who also happens to be the head sushi chef. As the Sushi Express Jackpot wild, the purple octopus can stand in for any other symbol – with the exception of the scatter – to complete winning payline combinations.
When this does happen, the Sushi Express Jackpot octopus wild becomes amusingly animated and starts chopping up some fresh sushi.
The Sushi Express Jackpot wild is also the most directly valuable symbol in the game, as the slot’s to payout – excluding the progressive jackpot – of 1000 coins is paid out for five of a kind on a single active payline.
The Progressive Sushi Express Jackpot
But the prize that Sushi Express players are really after is the progressive Sushi Express jackpot. The progressive Sushi Express jackpot differs slightly from other progressives in that it is not entirely random and players do not have to wager the max bet in order to qualify.
Golden Fish Scatters and a Bonus Round
The other very valuable symbol in Sushi Express Jackpot is the icon of two golden fishes. This symbol is the game’s scatter, although it doesn’t perform the usual scatter function of paying out regardless of where it appears on the reels.
Instead, the Sushi Express Jackpot golden fish symbol grants players access to the game’s bonus round – when three or more land on the reels. Note that this symbol only appears on the three middle reels.
Sushi Express Jackpot players are then taken to a new screen, where they must choose sushi items from the conveyor belt to receive either free spins or credit payouts.
Thereafter, during the free spins round, all the symbols, except the soy sauce and sushi, fade away after each free spin. Once again, players must choose between the symbols to receive either a cash prize or the chance to pick again.
The progressive Sushi Express jackpot is also in the offing in this round.
