Slashimi Base Game and Features
Slashimi is a 3-reel slot with up to 1,000 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Slashimi has a theoretical RTP of 96.00% and a max win cap of 5,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Sushi with a Green background, followed by the Sushi with Purple, Blue, and Brown backgrounds. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten. Wilds substitute for all other symbols except Scatters.
During the base game, with each new spin, the Chef will choose a High or Low-paying symbol at random before each spin to become the Two-for-One symbol.
Each time an instance of the chosen symbol lands in view, it will automatically split into two. The number of ways to win will increase, up to a maximum of 1,000 ways.
Slashimi Free Spins
Landing 3 Wasabi Scatters across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 4 Free Spins.
Before the Free Spins round begins, you will be able to pick your Two-for-One symbol which is your Splitting symbol for the duration of the Free Spins round.
In addition to splitting in two, your Two-for-One symbol will also lock onto the reels in the position they landed in until the end of the Free Spins round.
Landing a Scatter symbol during this time will award an additional +1 Free Spin, up to a maximum of 25 in total.
Slashimi: Our Verdict
If you weren’t hungry before this, you certainly will be now! Slashimi is a brilliantly designed slot with adorable sushi symbols and a clever Two-for-One feature in play.
Sushi is an acquired taste and a lot like marmite in some respects, you either love it or hate it, and the same can be said for sushi-themed slots like this one.
The Two-for-One feature is a great way to achieve frequent wins and bigger hits, which is made a lot easier thanks to the ways to win mechanic Play’n GO has opted for here.
The Free Spins round amplifies the Two-for-One feature by giving players a menu of High-paying symbols to choose from to become your splitting symbol.
To further complement Free Spins, Play’n GO has made sure that the 5,000x max win is more achievable by making the Two-for-One symbol sticky during this time, but is it capable of such a figure?
With only 4 Free Spins to start, you don’t get much of a chance to achieve this, and you find yourself relying on extra Scatters to land.
All in all, Slashimi didn’t quite deliver the 5-star service we had hoped for, but it did deliver some entertaining moments and a few cheeky wins here and there.
