This French cafe only offers the most sumptuous of desserts, and hiding within this A La Carte mobile slot are some truly sumptuous wins.
Wander the streets of Paris and, down a little-cobbled alley, you’ll find the Cafe Gourmand, whose (Italian? Right? He looks Italian. But maybe French.) chef will whip you up some brilliantly sweet treat for a coffee break.
This Fuga A La Carte slot game is pretty enough. Possibly it could have been prettier if they had removed the Ace to J symbols which do nothing to add to these 5×4 reels; would it had been so hard to make it all desserts like in Play’n GO’s Bakers Treat?
Those are the two main slot features that will bring you into this little French cafe, far more than the so-so Food slot theme.
And there are some pretty good wins to be had: the top win here is 1,000 times your bet if you get the whole screen full of cakes.
That might seem difficult, and it is, but except for those respins and free games which give you mega symbols.
There are two ways of getting mega symbols. The first is by getting 4 to 6 identical symbols in the middle of the screen, which then turns into a mega symbol and you get a re-spin. You are guaranteed to get at least a 6x cluster pay.
The second way is in the free spin games, where you only get 5 spins, but you get a high paying mega symbol in the middle of the screen and that symbols replacing all other high paying symbols.
So each free spins Guarantees you a 6x cluster win, which gets you an easy 30x to 40x your bet win each time.
The re-spins come often. And so does the wheel of fortune Coffee break instant win game.
But the free spins are damn hard to catch. Maybe we were unlucky but we played for 2 hours and only got the feature once.
It was a good free spin slot feature and one that can clearly pays really well, but it’s rarely worth chasing as you might never catch them – and that’s where you get the big 1,000 times your bet potential.
To be honest, this A La Carte slot is a solid choice as a little coffee break, but we wouldn’t stick around for dinner; we’d probably head to Sizzling Spins game instead.

Wilds: The Chef is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols to create a win of clusters of 6 or more symbols. It does not substitute for the Coffee Break symbol.
Cluster Pays: Symbols become part of a cluster if adjacent to the same symbol horizontally or vertically. This can be from 6 to 20 symbols.
Mega Symbol Re-spins: 4 to 6 identical symbols (without a wild) in the middle of the reels will transfer into a mega symbol that fills all 6 spaces.
You then get a re-spin of the rest of the reels around them, and hope to catch more symbols - but you are guaranteed to get at least a 6x cluster pay.
Mega Symbol Free Spins: 3 to 5 dessert symbols, or wilds, stopped in the middle bonus zone will start 5 free spins.
On each free spin, you get one mega symbol in the bonus central zone. You start with the lowest paid dessert, and only that dessert will now be in play for that spin.
On each spin, the mega symbol and dessert will get higher in the pay ranking, giving you basically 5 free spins where you are guaranteed a 6x cluster win on each spin.
Which only guarantees about 7x your bet, but is no much less than the guaranteed minimum win in games like Raging Rhino slot.
Coffee Break Bonus: 2, 3, or 4 Coffee Break symbols stopped on the corner of the game field start a wheel of fortune bonus.
Those symbols now turn into a pointer for the wheel of fortune. You get 3 spins if you land on a cash prize, which then disappears for the next spin. If a pointer lands on a blank space, the pointer then disappears.
The bonus ends when you have no pointer or no spins left.
We actually quite liked this A La Carte game, it has some fun free spins, some great mega symbols and some decent wins.
Our main problem is that those free spins are way too difficult to find, and the wins don't come as easy as you might think, especially when 20 symbols 'only' pays 1,000 times your bet.
It's a good sum, but mostly you'll get a cluster of 6 to 8 symbols that only pay a little. We just wish it had been a little sweeter to us.
