According to the official NetEnt website, the hotly anticipated new Hell’s Kitchen online slot machine is officially set to arrive on desktop and mobile on Thursday, March 25th, 2021. It has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, and you will soon be able to take one spin of the reels from as little as £0.20 up to a maximum of £100.00 per spin. It looks as though the top coin prize that you can play to win during the main bonus feature is worth up to 1,000x times your total stake.

The game is based on the long-running television show of the same name, and the good news is that there are a couple of fun ways to win prizes. The two most important symbols to keep an eye out for as you spin the reels are the Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols. The Wild Symbol is the Hell’s Kitchen (HK) Logo, and it can land in any position across the reels. The Wild Symbol will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Gordon Ramsay Character Symbol Scatter, which can only ever land on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 (so never on the middle reel).

One of the in-play features that you can look forward to is the Ramsay’s Wild feature, which can randomly trigger on any lucky spin. Once triggered, all you have to do is watch as Gordon throws plates of knives onto random symbol positions on the reels, turning anywhere from 5 to 7 symbols into Wild Symbols, which will hopefully generate some kind of new winning combo for you.

The most exciting thing about this game is the Free Spins Bonus (called the Team Challenge Free Spins Bonus feature), which will instantly trigger when 3 or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin. If just 3 Scatter Symbols triggered the feature, then you would receive just 10 Free Spins, whereas 4 Scatter Symbols triggering the bonus would get you 15 Free Spins.

The feature is played with two sets of reels that spin simultaneously next to each other. You have the Red Team (the red set of reels) on the left and the Blue Team (the blue set of reels) on the right. On each Free Spin throughout the bonus, 1 to 3 in-play features (aka modifiers) known as ‘Order Up’ features will randomly trigger.

They include the 2X Multiplier feature (where all line wins that are in view are automatically doubled), the 3X Multiplier feature (where any wins that are in view are tripled), and the Team Wilds feature (where 3 to 8 new Wild Symbols are added to random symbol positions on the reels). These Order Up features are either Red Team or Blue Team features, which means that they will apply to the left or right set of reels.

This new NetEnt slot also has a fun picking bonus to win prizes from, which will play out at the end of the feature if you chose the winning team (the set of reels that wins the most cash during the Free Spins Bonus). You will be presented with 15 menus, and all you need to do is click on them to reveal cash prizes and multipliers. The feature will only end after you have found 3 ‘X’ symbols.

Don’t forget to check out the new Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen online slot as soon as it arrives next month. Some of the other popular NetEnt slots that I can recommend keeping an eye out for in the meantime include Planet of the Apes, Ozzy Osbourne, Narcos, Vikings, Twin Spin Megaways, and Gonzo’s Quest Megaways.
