Brand new from Microgaming is this food-related online slot which will make you feel hungry despite your best efforts to ignore the tempting array on offer. It’s called Big Chef and it’s revolves around the day to day activities in a posh French restaurant. It has two separate bonus features so feel free to peruse the following review to find out how it all works.
Big Chef is a five reel slot with three rows and fifteen fixed paylines; the purple lights of a kitchen illuminate the background and the reels themselves spin inside a giant menu. Cheesy French music provides the slightly annoying ambiance.
All the symbols are related to the theme and are either employees – the chef, a female chef, a waiter, a kitchen hand – or meals including crab, a steak, chicken and soup.
The Big Chef logo is wild and there are two scatters – the cloche and the blue menu – which trigger separate features.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the menu scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive ten free spins with all wins subject to a 2x multiplier.
There’s an additional aspect to this round called Rising Wilds and each time you land a wild symbol it will extend upwards on each spin, leaving a trail behind it. This can result in plenty of wilds on the reels and consequently to some big wins. When it reaches the top of the screen it disappears. A wild which covers all positions on a reel is revealed to be a big oven.
If you can land the cloche serving plate on reel five during the base game you will receive one free spin; if a wild lands on that spin it will start the Rising Wilds feature and award more spins until it reaches the top of the screen.
Big Chef is good fun and well worth some of your slot-playing time; it seems relatively easy to trigger the main feature and this of course is where the bigger wins are.
