So Much Sushi is a five-reel 25-payline online video slot with a slightly unusual theme centred on traditional Japanese cuisine. Although it is quite uncomplicated, it does take a unique approach to its free spins feature and the concept of multipliers.
The coin values in So Much Sushi range from 0.01 to 0.20 credits and players may wager up to 20 coins per line. It is important to note that all 25 lines must be played. Once players are comfortable with their wager settings, they have the option to sit back and relax while the Autoplay function does the spinning for them.
So Much Sushi on the Menu
The theme and symbols of So Much Sushi are a visual smorgasbord for any sushi lover. The game is set inside a dimly lit Japanese restaurant, with the reels appearing in-front of a wood-panelled wall.
There’s no chance of being overwhelmed by the symbols included in So Much Sushi because there aren’t very many. In keeping with the theme, the five high symbols include servings of Makizushi, Nigiri, Kani, Gunkan and Uromaki.
The So Much Sushi Logo is Wild
The So Much Sushi logo is the game’s wild symbol so, whenever it appears on a payline, it can be used to stand in for other symbols to complete winning combinations. The only symbol that the So Much Sushi wild cannot replace is the scatter.
Anyone for Seconds… or Thirds…?
How about a 25-piece platter? Thanks to the unique 25x Split Symbol Reward, there is really so much sushi on this video slot. All the high-value symbols have the unusual ability to split into more symbols whenever three or more matching items of sushi appear on the same payline. Each symbol can split into up to five more symbols, effectively increasing the number of matching symbols on the line.
In fact, if five matching pieces of sushi appear on a single payline and each of these splits into five, the payline with grow to 25 matching symbols in length. When the snack in question is the top-value Makizushi – better known as a California roll – the base game jackpot of 64 000 coins is paid out.
Because of this, the So Much Sushi wild can sometimes get in the way because, although it can replace sushi symbols, it cannot split like they can.
16 Soya-Flavoured Free Spins
In So Much Sushi, the soya sauce serves as the scatter symbol and, in addition to paying out for two or more of a kind anywhere on the reels, it can unlock up to 16 free spins with multipliers.
Free spins are awarded when three or more scatters are landed anywhere on the reels. How many free spins are awarded depends on the player, who must select one of the five high symbols to replace all other high symbols during free spins.
Each of these awards the same Split Symbol Rewards as always but each comes with a different number of free spins – which decrease as the symbol value and multiplier number increase. So, if players want a shot at the So Much Sushi 320 000 coin jackpot, they’ll have to settle for just eight free spins.
Same Game, Different Theme
Since people tend to either love or hate the idea of rice and raw fish, Microgaming released two other online pokies along with So Much Sushi that are identical in every way except for their themes. So Much Candy and So Many Monsters may be interesting alternatives for players who find this theme a little too fishy.
