It’s always good to be educated while you’re playing online slots and so we particularly like the Fun Facts which appear by the side of Sumo Kitty. Here we learn that there are no weight divisions in Sumo wrestling but that it is not uncommon for a 200 pound competitor to beat someone twice their size. Back to business though and the theme of this Bally technology slot is a Sumo wrestling cat.
Sumo Kitty is a five reel slot with four rows. There is no payline structure and winning combos can be formed as long as you and matching symbols from left to right. The reels occupy a fairly small portion of screen space, underneath the chubby cat waiting to fight.
The main symbols are a lotus flower, a bonsai tree, a Koi carp, a ball of wool and the cat himself. 9, 10, J, Q, K and A are the low value symbols.
Special symbols include the ‘Wild’ wild and the ‘Sumo’ logo which activates the main feature.
Bally called them Hot Zones but we’re inclined to refer to them as Tetris pieces. These are irregular groups of blocks which occasionally appear on the reels and turn everything within them wild. Watch them in action in the video above.
The Sumo scatter symbols appears on reels one, three and five and if you can land it in all three places in one spin you will trigger the spins. You will now get to pick from the following:
- Five spins + wins with a wild multiplied by 10x, 12x or 20x
- Ten spins + wins with a wild multiplied by 5x, 7x or 10x
- Twenty spins + wins with a wild multiplied by 2x, 3x or 5x
The Tetris pieces are in effect here of course and act as in the base game. Landing three more scatter symbols will award five more free spins.
Sumo Kitty Online Slot Playing Tips
We prefer going down the middle when choosing the number of spins; it probably won’t pay out any more in the long term but it last longer than five spins and you get better multipliers than the twenty spins.
This is a high quality slot with an amusing theme and plenty to recommend it. We like the Hot Zone/Tetris feature and the ability to select the number of free spins.
