The Chinese Kitchen slot is a good looking classic slot machine from Playtech that leaves you hungry for the basics.
The Chinese Kitchen mobile slot has no wilds. No free spins, no jackpots, no mini-games or click me features. What it does have is a scatter. An angry looking crab that pays in any position on an active payline and multiplies the win by the line bet. One lonely scatter.
Most 3 reel slots are about the joy of the simplicity of the spin, and this mobile slot hits the right boxes for what we look for in a classic slot. After all, during lunch time and commutes, sometimes you need to spin a few reels without the fear of hitting a bonus and missing out.
So why are we being so forgiving to what seems like a fairly standard mobile slot? First of all, the graphics are sublime. You won’t find egg fried noodles amongst the beautiful dishes this Chinese chef is preparing. Granted, he doesn’t appear to have killed the poor critters he is serving you up on each spin, but at least he is not being boring.
Caterpillar salad, blue octopus soup, starfish rice and a live frog that appears to come with it’s own club (presumably so you can eat it fresh?) all represent some of the different symbols on the board. The fact that you can see the chef prepare, chop and boil the food on the screen as it flies on the shelves is pretty refreshing from the usual classic slots that assume that ‘classics’ means ‘visually uninteresting’.
Where the fun really kicks in with this slot is the fact that it has an unusually high payout rate for a Playtech game, at 96.92% the hits come often enough to keep your player balance happy and spinning. Add to that the fact that if you get 3 turtles on an active payline you’ll win 1000 times your bet and what we have here is a simple slot with a decent maximum win.
Best of all the betting range makes it an ideal slot for beginners and those wanting to move on from your classic one liners but are not ready to jump straight into a 5 reel video slot. At 0.01 per line bet, you can start small at 0.08 to 8 coins a spin.

Scatter: The Crab is the scatter symbol and the only feature in this slot other than the classic spin and win. The scatter symbol pays in any position on an active payline. The payout for a scatter win is multiplied by the line bet and added to other payline wins.
This is a fun graphically original slot that will appeal to players who want to have a few spins on short journeys or bet conservatively. With a decent return to player rate, Chinese Kitchen mobile slot won't make you a millionaire but it will keep you spinning and your budget lasting longer than expected.
High rollers looking for a classic slot that has a similar game play to this Chinese Kitchen slot should look elsewhere as the betting limit is only £/€/$8 a spin with a maximum win of £/€/$8,000. We recommend Gold Rally with a decent progressive jackpot.
