This Asian delight may get good presentation points, but the Sushi Bar mobile slot lacks real substance. Chance’s are you’ll walk away from this one with an empty belly.
Though we are fans of sushi, we are not sure it makes for the best theme. Don’t get us wrong, the details on all the graphics look beautiful, and your stereotypical Japanese chef makes it certain that you know you’ve just walked into an authentic Sushi Bar.
However, the different symbols on the five reels are almost too well done, giving a chaotic feel to the theme and making it hard to follow a potential win. The sounds, at least, are slightly more unusual, adding to the Asian flavour.
So far, so… meh.
This little beauty is the reason why Sushi Bar slot game on mobile doesn’t only get one star. The wins here come often. All too often in fact, each time reminding you how little you are really winning as your budget slowly decreases. We’ve had five of a kind wins where we ONLY got our bet back. Disappointing is not the word we’d use.
Thank-fully, the one symbol that can almost remedy the boredom of nothing much happening on the screen is the wild symbol which comes with a 2x multiplier. This does, sometimes, give you enough to hope that maybe you could get more than uncooked money out of the deal.
Though you’ll see that we’ve put that you can get up to 20 free spins on this mobile slot machine, expect 8 as getting more than three scatters is hard. You’d think that as you get so few free spins you’ll 1. get them often and 2. come with more than 2x multiplier.
But no, because this Betsoft Gaming mobile slot decided that fun was reserved for their other slots only, like the Madder Scientist slot and Rook’s Revenge slot game. Maybe they reached their quota for the year when it came to releasing this Sushi Bar slot?
We’ve rarely walked away with more than about 10x our bet on the free spins feature and to be honest, we got bored of trying after an hour or so.

Wilds: The soya sauce is the wild symbol and comes with a 2x multiplier if used in any winning combination. It replaces all symbols except the scatter.
Scatters & Free Spins: The japanese fan is the scatter symbol with 3, 4 or 5 symbols anywhere on the reels triggering 8, 12 or 20 free spins. All the free spins come with a 2x multiplier.
If this was actual sushi it would look beautiful until you got close enough to smell a whiff of something off. That whiff is the fact that there is little entertainment to be found in this Sushi Bar video slot and the free spins are hard to get and disappointing.
Thank god for a multiplier on the wild symbol that livened things up from time to time, with a few in game wins and the fact that it works great as an Android slot or an iPad / iPhone slot. Because we believe in looking at the bright side of life when get food poisoning.
