Stars from almost all aspects of our life, ranging from musicians through movie stars up to scientists, are not always refraining from gaming and gambling. Just to give a hint, Paul Allen, who owes his fortune to Microsoft, glides on the waters of the Atlantic on his fabulous luxury yacht called Octopus. It also has games rooms, wellness and spa baths, as well as a music studio, swimming pool and cinema. Renowned as the head of Apple, Steve Jobs owned one of the most beautiful yachts, the Venus, where a small casino is also found (and the list goes on and on, Ben Affleck, Matt Demon or Charlie Sheen are the examples of men who like to be in casinos).
Celebrities have been affecting generations in many ways by being inspiration, thought-provoking sources for think our lives over. When it comes to online slot games, celebrities-themed ones are on fire (think for instance of Sylvester Stallone’s Expendables movie and the slot build around it). Let’s just have a look at one of those firing ones, firing at least from another aspect, at Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen.
Gordon Ramsay – Hell’s Kitchen slot
Gordon Ramsey gained notoriety as early as the late 1990s and was known for his fiery temperament and scathing critique. His television programs like “Hells Kitchen” and “Kitchen Nightmares” have brought him great success worldwide. So, what better recipe for success than NetEnt’s collaboration with him in this 5-reel, 3-row video slot?
The game has an RTP value of 96.07% coupled with a relatively low volatility. The slot has 20 bet lines (fixed) and different bet values, coin values, and bet levels designed tastily. As you might guess, Gordon’s signature dishes manifest in the highest paying symbols along the slot, such as the beef Wellington. Of course, spicy burger has also a salient value.
The game’s wild logo can land on all reels both in the base game and during the bonus round. It is used for all regular pay symbols, as wilds normally do. The wilds function of a Ramsay can be triggered at random times and distribute 5 to 7 wilds that are randomly placed on the reels. This may sound like standard footage, but all of the features are enhanced by Gordon’s lively action commentary and raw animation.
With its gourmet graphics, you can look forward to a two-reel Team Challenge bonus round with plenty of side dishes. You trigger the function by landing at least 3 burning Gordon Ramsay scatters in sight. The scatters can land on all reels except the center reel, and you get 10 or 15 free spins if you land 3 or 4 in sight, you will then see the screen split into two separate 5×3 reel sets, one for that red team and one for the blue team. Before the bonus round begins, you can decide which team you would like to root for. Each Free Spins contains 1 to 3 Order Up features that are slid under the reels in the form of fancy-looking dishes, these features are 2x and 3x multipliers and 3 to 8 wilds that are randomly placed on the corresponding set of reels. The main courses are available in either red or blue and only benefit the team / roles with the matching colour. If you get more than one multiplier of the same colour, the multiplier values are added together.
Since the test of a pudding is eating, let’s try Ramsey’s Kitchen!
