The Big Chef online slot by Microgaming features a French kitchen theme with some unusual features that make it a unique game. In the online casino world, the fact of the matter is that a lot of themes have been done to death. Some people feel like if they see one more Egyptian or wealth-based theme that they’re going to have a fit, and that’s because it’s boring to see the same old thing over and over again.
With the Big Chef slot by Microgaming, you don’t have that problem because it’s a specific theme that hasn’t been done to death, and it has some special features that really make it stand out. On top of that, it has a high level of visual appeal. As Big Chef has been taken offline, we can recommend Baker’s Treat by Play ‘N Go and Ninja Chef a slot by iSoftBet.
Update! Unfortunately Microgaming has deleted this slot!
Layout of the Big Chef Slot
The format of the Big Chef Slot uses 15 paylines spread across five reels and three rows. When a lower number of paylines is used like this on a relatively new game by Microgaming, it’s usually because they have a feature they’re using that has such a large amount of value that they have to limit it to some degree to keep the value from getting out of hand, and that’s the case here. Coin sizes start at €/$0,01 apiece to put the minimum bet size at €/$0,15 per spin. An autoplay options is also available.
Symbols and Payouts
The main symbol is the chef, and five of him will get you a 4,000x jackpot. A 3,000x secondary jackpot is available for five of the female sous chef, and five of the maitre’d will get you a 2,500x payout. Something that’s worth pointing out here is that this game has a very flat payout structure at the top end, and this helps players to have more chances of winning sizable payouts. This is a lot different than most games with one large jackpot and then a huge dropoff to the second-highest win. The Big Chef logo is also wild.
Pick up three or more of the scattered menu symbol to get 10 free spins. A multiplier of 2x is added to all of your wins, but that’s not all of the extra value you get. When you pick up a wild in this game, it’ll stay in place and rise to expand to the place above it with the Rising Wilds feature. This happens until it hits the top of the reels. This gives you a lot of extra value, and it’s an atypical twist on a wild feature in the free spins.
What do we think of the Big Chef Slot?
If you are looking for a slot with funny moments and gourmet meals then Big chef is worth a try. With an RTP of 97% and a max payout of €/$75,000 this is definitely one of Microgaming’s big payout slots.
Big Chef was released in 2015 so the visual aspects are somewhat outdated. If you prefer slots with more paylines then Jurassic world springs to mind.
