Overview: Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen Slot
One of the hottest new online slots for 2021 is Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen. Created by NetEnt, this branded slot game is based around the popular TV chef who’s known for his somewhat fiery temper as much as he is for his culinary creations. The British chef and TV personality’s perhaps most famous for his show Hell’s Kitchen, an American reality competition series that’s been running since 2005.
The Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen slot features a host of delectable dishes and, off course, the chef himself, who delivers some sassy catchphrases as you play. The theming and design are both of a high standard – if you’ve seen the Hell’s Kitchen show before, the slot should look familiar to you. The slot’s volatility is low, so payouts should be frequent and small, and the RTP is a decent 96.07%.
The range of bet sizes is quite high, going from 0.20 all the way up to 400.00. Big spenders should find the slot’s higher bet sizes appealing, while those who are on a tight budget and don’t have much to spend may find the minimum bet size a bit too high.
Symbols and Payouts
The slot’s symbols include playing card royals and a range of restaurant classics: there’s a burger, a cocktail, a sticky toffee pudding and a beef Wellington. For a top payout of 10x your bet, land five beef Wellington symbols on any one of the slot’s twenty paylines. Helping you to win is the wild, which is represented as the slot’s logo and substitutes for all of the standard symbols.
As usual, you win by lining up three to five matching symbols on one of the slot’s paylines. The symbols have to be on adjacent reels, starting from the far left reel, to count as a winning combination and for you to get paid.
The Ramsay’s Wilds feature can activate at any time and when it does, various things such as plates, pots and even knives are thrown onto the reels. You end up with five to seven wilds being added to the reels in random positions.
Then there’s the Team Challenge Free Spins feature, which is the slot’s main bonus round. Landing three or four scatters triggers the feature and gives you ten or fifteen free spins respectively. Before you starting using these, pick either the red team or the blue team. The feature then plays out, but with two grids instead of one. There’s one grid for the red team and one for the blue team.
As you use the free spins, multipliers and wilds can be added to either one of the grids. Once all free spins have been used up, you’re paid the winnings earned from both grids. If the team you chose wins the most money, or if it’s a tie, you’ll get to play Gordon’s Bonus Game. If your chosen team lost, you’ll return to the base game. The free spins round can’t be retriggered, but with two grids it has the potential to give you some decent payouts.
As for Gordon’s Bonus Game, it’s a pick-me game where there are fifteen menus on the screen and you get to win cash prizes of 2x, 3x or 5x your bet and 2x and 3x multipliers. Keep on picking menus and once you’ve revealed three Xs, the feature ends and you’re awarded all of the prizes you’ve won. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll manage to earn all twelve rewards before revealing the third and final X.
Gordon Ramsay: Hell’s Kitchen is an impressive new online slot game that brings Gordon Ramsay’s acerbic wit, hasty put-downs and infectious sass to the world of online casinos – not forgetting his taste for fine food. The slot is closely based on his hugely popular and long-running reality TV gameshow Hell’s Kitchen and is sure to please anyone who’s seen the show and is a fan of the chef and his short temper – don’t worry, you won’t hear any swear words as you play!
