If you’re looking for a bite to eat, then checkout this Microgaming offering, available on Jackpot City and other top online casinos. Big Chef is a culinary feast in pokie form, with some aesthetics reminiscent of Pixar classics and a few fun features thrown in for good measure.
The theme is not polished, but it works and it looks good. There is a high variance on the base game and some high paying symbols, with the big chef himself returning 50x your total stake if you get 5 of him in a single payline. Whilst impressive, that doesn’t come close to the wild, as you will get a return of 333x your total stake if you land 5 of the wild symbols in a payline.
This 5 reel pokie has just 15 paylines, and you play these with coins, which you attach a value to prior to pressing the “play” button. This value ranges from just $0.15, all of the way up to $7.50.
The main bonus round on this pokie is a free spins round, with an initial 10 free spins and a 3x multiplier going your way. There are also a couple of additional features that are triggered during the free spins round and serve to boost your return during this round. There are no other features, but this feature is fairly common and you won’t be left wanting after an extended session.
This is a fun pokie, but whilst the free spins round is common enough to satisfy, it doesn’t do much for the game’s longevity and after an extended session you might find that you have played all you can play, never returning again. The sign of a good pokie is one that can hook you for hours on end, which this does, but the sign of a great pokie is one you will keep returning to, and this definitely doesn’t do that.
