Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen™ Video Slot
Hell’s Kitchen is the popular TV show fronted by top chef Gordon Ramsay, who pitted two teams of chefs against one another in the arena of one his very own working restaurants.
The show was as popular for Ramsay’s unique style of mentoring as it was for the food that was on the show, and now there is a slot that captures the essence of Hell’s Kitchen and instils it into reels, paylines, and symbols.
The Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen™ slot is a low-to-medium volatility game, that operates across a total of 5 reels and 3 rows.
Foodies and budding chefs are well catered for on the slot’s 20 fixed bet lines, because the most valuable symbols in the game are those that show off the special dishes that Ramsay built his reputation around. This means that beef wellington makes an appearance, as do spicy burgers, and sticky toffee pudding.
Just as any proficient chef needs an array of ingredients, condiments, and cooking apparatuses on hand in order to create the best dishes possible, players of slots appreciate a range of special features. One selection served up by Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen™ are Ramsay’s Wilds. These come about in the main game, when Gordon throws cutlery or cooking utensils at the reels, which then transform into Wilds. Players can receive 5 to 7 Ramsay’s Wild symbols on any reel during the game rounds. The Wilds will substitute for all symbols except for Scatter symbols.
The gourmet meals that dominated Hell’s Kitchen are also present in this slot’s symbols and icons
Another spicy feature is the Team Challenge Free Spins round, triggered when three or more Scatter symbols appear in the main game. Borrowing from the format of the TV show, players must choose whether to join forces with the blue team or the red team before the round begins. During each spin, red and blue Order Up features triggering Multipliers and Team Wilds features will be randomly activated for the specific teams. At the end of the round, the team with the biggest total win will be the winner of the cooking competition. The good news is that no matter which team a player decides to join, the winnings accrued by both teams are combined and credited.
The one main benefit of a player’s team coming out on top in the Team Challenge is that they are then taken forward into what is known as Gordon’s Bonus Game. Here players are required to choose from a selection of 15 menus, with 12 of them baring prizes and 3 of them sending players back to the main game to cook up a storm from scratch.
While the special features in this game are inventive and true to Hell’s Kitchen, there are also many other aspects of the game that add extra flavour as well. Some of these are the voiceover commands and congratulatory remarks that punctuate the game, all spoken by Ramsay himself, which leave players genuinely feeling as though they are in the midst of a busy dinner service at the real restaurant.
Accompanying Ramsay’s voice is music from the hit show. The slot’s background graphics are also adorned with the Hell’s Kitchen logo as well as being furnished in the sort of décor that viewers came to expect from the restaurant’s dining area.
