Sushi Yum Yum mobile slot is simply adorable. But much like a high end sushi restaurant, you’ll have to pay for the good stuff.
Sushi Yum Yum Extra Wasabi, to give this mobile phone slot its full name, is only available to play on the go. You won’t find it on any IGT online casinos.
Which surprised us. Sushi Yum Yum slot is beautifully well done, with the kind of Japanese kawaii that makes you want to hug every single symbol on screen.
From the fan waving cat, to the sneaky octopus wearing sushi, or the roe sticking its tongue out, every symbol has a little animation that’s makes you smile and works perfectly on any size screen.
So we don’t know why IGT release the Sushi Yum Yum Extra Wasabi slot game on mobile only. Because they didn’t sacrifice on the graphics, sounds, or the big wins.
We’re just glad we get to play.
That said, as soon as we opened and played a few rounds, we recognised what machine we were playing. This is basically a copy of the 720 ways to win Siberian Storm slot.
But whilst the original at least had the decency to warn you, with those great big white tigers, that the game was dangerous, the Sushi Yum Yum video slot eases you into thinking that… hey, we’re cute. We won’t hurt.
And that will be the last mistake you’ll make.
On a bad round we’ve played 100 spins with nothing to show for it than being 100 rounds poorer.
And then, out of nowhere, we’ll get a stack of wasabi wilds on screen and it brought us back from the brink of despair.
Who knew sushi could be such a dangerous pastime?
We are talking wins of 50 to 100 times our bet, out of the blue. It’s like having an all you can eat sushi buffet in front of you, but having to walk up a tall mountain to get to it.
Bet low, and budget wisely, is our advice.
Because what you are budgeting for is the free spins. And whilst getting the maximum amount of 150 free spins is fairly rare, because of the way these hexagonal reels are placed, getting a few stacked bonus symbol isn’t.
Mostly you’ll get 5, maybe 10. But the more you get, the better as during the free spins bonuses the reels are richer and full of stacked wild wasabi symbols.
And trust us that when you get a couple of reels full of wasabi symbols, leading to a whole increase in multiplier over these 720 ways to win slot machine.
This Sushi Yum Yum Android and iOS slot is the dark horse of IGT mobile games. Worthy to be made into a MegaJackpots like Siberian Storm.

Wilds: The little green wasabi turd (come on, you were thinking it) is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols except scatter and bonus.
Scatters: The little sushi dragon is scatter and any two pays 2x your total bet, 4 will pay 10 times and 5 will pay 50 times.
Multi-Way Extra Wins: Sushi Yum Yum pays both ways and is the reason it has a total of 720 ways to win.
The way this works is slightly more complicated than usual, but leads to some nice action on the reels and the possibility of some fairly large multipliers.
Basically you multiply the number of symbols on each reel.
So say you have 1 sushi roe symbol on reel 1, 2 on reel 2, 3 on reel 3 and 1 on reel 4.
Free Spin Bonus: This is triggered by getting the 'wave' bonus symbol in any position on five consecutive reels. Not easy, but not as hard as you might think.
Usually within 100 to 200 spins or so.
However, for every extra bonus symbol on the reels, you'll get an additional 5 free spins. The maximum you can trigger at first is 60.
That said, there is the potential to re-trigger the free spins within the bonus game, up to a maximum of 150 free spins in total.
Get that many and you'll be buying sushi dinners for the rest of the year as these free spins reels are richer, with more wins and stacked wilds.
So the result is usually very nice indeed.
Sushi Yum Yum mobile slot may not be completely original, but we pretty much fell in love the moment we opened it up.
It's hard to find a mobile casino game more adorable and yet with the possibility of winning huge.
If you think this one might be too much to handle and want a something that's equally cute but without risking as much of your budget, then we'd recommend the Balloonies slot.
However you'll find us climbing that mountain heading straight up to the sushi buffet.
