For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chinese food, Dim Sum is a style of Chinese Canton cuisine in which dishes are served in bite-sized portions – usually three or four that are presented on small plates or in bamboo steamer baskets. Originally created for sale in the teahouses of ancient China, Dim Sum is now popular in Chinese restaurants and take-away outlets all over the world.
Win Sum Dim Sum is a five-reel slots title which draws on all of that background to deliver a gaming experience which is quite literally mouth-watering. Symbols include the playing card ranks 10, J, Q, K and A, various Dim Sum delicacies, a steamer basket and a tea pot.
The steamer basket symbol is Wild, and when it appears on the third reel it will expand to fill the whole of that reel, helping players to secure bigger wins than would be possible without it. The teapot symbol is a Scatter, and when three or more of those appear on the reels at the same time, they will trigger a Free Spins round. This gives players 15 free spins that can be re-triggered, and in this part of the game, Wild symbols will expand on the second, third and fourth reels.
The graphics in this game are clean and crisp, with white reels contrasting nicely against a general colour scheme of red and gold – colours that, in Chinese culture, represent prosperity and good fortune. Audio is also impressive, with a traditional Eastern soundtrack playing throughout. Add in the chance to win up to 75,000 credits and Win Sum Dim Sum is definitely a game to savour.
