Waiting for some Chinese take-out? The Win Sum Dim Sum mobile slot will make you hungry for more, but probably won’t satisfy as much as the real thing.
However, we’ve never been fans of the generic ‘put food items in a machine’ theme. Which is all this is. There’s Dim Sum in the reels, some Chinese tea pots and generic card symbols.
Add the red, and it almost feels a little lazy – like the theme in the So Much Sushi slot game.
Are we supposed to be hungry, or was the only inspiration they could find in the closest restaurant brochure they could find?
For a 9 payline slot, you actually see a fair amount of action whilst playing on this online Microgaming game.
That’s because, whilst the wild only expands on reel 3, the Win Sum Dim Sum slot is packed full of wilds. Meaning you actually get a full reel on the centre of the game fairly often.
It keeps things fairly lively, even if the wins are rarely much to shout about.
In the Win Sum Dim Sum slot free spins things spice up a little as the expanded wilds not come on reel 2, 3 and 4.
That said, you’d think with all the wilds in the base game, you’d have at least 2 wilds on screen at all times. In reality, it just moves the expanded wild from being always in the centre of the reel, to moving around a little.
You do get more wins, and we’ve had 40x our bet in a single spin, but it’s hard to get excited about steamed pork dumplings, even if this Microgaming mobile slot promises a top win of over 3,000 times your bet in this Win Sum Dim Sum video slot.
Not bad, but as far as 9 payline games go, we’d probably still head to the original Thunderstruck machine.

Wilds: The steamers are the wild symbols and substitute for all symbols except scatter. When it shows up on reel 3 during the base game, it will expand to cover the whole reel.
Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more scatter symbols in this Win Sum Dim Sum slot game and you'll trigger 15 free spins.
What makes them special is that now the wild symbol can expand on reels 2, 3 and 4. Meaning you can, theoretically, get 3 expanded wilds on screen - though you rarely get more than one.
Still, it shows up often enough that you can get a few decent wins during the free spins.
This Win Sum Dim Sum mobile slot isn't bad, per say, but the theme, animations and sounds feel lazy and uninspired.
It's not even like the food looks that tasty, it's more the dumplings you'd find on the back of a cart at 3pm on your way home through Chinatown.
There's a few decent 5 of a kind wins, which the expanded wilds give you a chance to get, and it's perfect if you're in the mood for Chinese, but your other half forces you to order pizza instead.
It's a kind of quiet rebellion, right?
Personally, we'd head to the Wild Orient slot for a little more originality.
Or you can play Win Sum Dim Sum at one of these mobile casinos:
