Are you an aspiring chef who loves to put together the best ingredients possible in order to create the most delicious meal possible? If so, then there is a very good chance that the Big Chef slot from Microgaming is the perfect game for you.
Big Chef is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot that pays homage to the world of French chefs, complete with some great looking appetisers, main courses, and deserts. The game's theme puts you right in the centre of a French restaurant and gives you the following symbols: the big and robust French Chef, the beautiful blonde sous chef, a crab dish, steak, turkey, soup, soufflé, the stuck up waiter, and the lowly busboy.
Feature wise the game includes free spins that are set off when the bell arrives on the fifth reel of the game. Inside of that game is a second feature that allows players to score big through the rising wilds feature. The rising wild sees any wild symbol that appears on the reels to rise and make the symbols on top of it wild as well. This can pay off in a huge way, especially if you get several wild symbols on the reels during these free spin rounds. Other features in the game include win multipliers, standard wild symbols, and scatter symbols that end up setting off the free spin rounds.
During personal play sessions I found the game to be a bit of the standard Microgaming video slot bill. Things don't exactly knock your socks off in terms of presentation or features, but the sum of all of Big Chef's parts are very well done and I feel that the game is enjoyable and is certainly worth your time and money, especially if you are the kind of punter that enjoys cooking or food themes in your games.
