With 5 reels, 10 paylines, a high RTP of 97.16% and a low minimum bet of 0.05 a spin, what could possibly go wrong with this Dim Sum Prize slot? Read our review to find out.
We really thought this Betsoft slot game would be the one to break the trend of the studio creating middling to poor machines that no one cares about.
Dim Sum Prize has 5 reels and 10 paylines, with a beautiful Cantonese brunch-themed slot, filled with teatime wild that give you a free re-spin of the reels, and a free spin features with sticky wilds.
It had all the elements of a great game, the first of which is a beautiful theme where you can almost smell the Pork Bao. Prettier than the Win Sum Dim sum slot by Microgaming, that’s for sure.
Nothing makes you have some Dim Sum as a cart offering you free tea with each one of those lovely little Chinese snacks.
And that’s exactly what you get, because the Tea set is the wild symbol and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. And when it does, you’ll get a free re-spin of the reels for each wild you catch, up to 9 re-spins.
It’s incredibly good fun to watch, and even more fun if you manage to catch 3 scatters and 5 free spins. Because in the free spins, you automatically get 3 wild sticky on screen each time, and any extra wilds will also stay for the whole Dim Sum Prize slot bonus round.
The problem is with the Dim Sum Prize paytable, which is poor at best. The biggest win you can hope to hit is somewhere upwards of 300x your bet, which is nothing in this day and age of mobile casino slots.
If we look at more recent medium variance machines (which this game claims to be), the top prizes are way more impressive. You can win up to 2,200x your bet in the Ghost Glyph slot, for example. Even NetEnt offers you 2,000x your bet win on the 3 reel Disco Danny slot review.
So straight out of the gates, this Dim Sum Prize slot isn’t competing on the same level as new slot releases, and no matter how much fun we had playing with all those sticky wilds and re-spins, we couldn’t in good conscience, recommend it.

Wilds and Re-spins: The tea set is the wild symbol, and anytime it appears on the reel it will award you with 1 free re-spin with the wild sticky on screen. Any additional teatime wilds that show up or are on screen will give you an additional free re-spin and also stay on screen. You can get a maximum of 9 free re-spins, as the wilds only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols on this 10 paylines slot machine game, except the scatter symbols.
Bamboo Basket Surprise: The bamboo basket is the mystery symbol, and when it appears will randomly transform into either a scatter or wild, and trigger the respective feature if it's possible.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 Crimson coupon symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 will trigger 5 free spins. During these free spins, you have 3 sticky wilds on screen at all time, randomly on the middle reels. Any wild symbols that show up on screen will give you an additional re-spin much like in the base game, but will then also stay sticky on screen.
As sumptuous as this Dim Sum Prize slot on mobile may look, it can't hide that it suffers from a fairly middling paytable.
Despite that high RTP of 97.18% the maximum amount you can win here is a middling 300x your bet, which isn't enough to get us out of bed on most mornings, no matter how tempting the Cha siu bao.
Which is a shame, cause if Betsoft had been a little more generous there are some fun mechanics here, with lots of re-spins and sticky wilds bringing excitement to the screen.
