NetEnt’s Hell’s Kitchen slot is the third and for now last slot to cross online gambling with a popular brand. The low volatility 5 reel slot based around Gordon Ramsay’s TV show mimics it in some ways and pits players against chef in the free spins.
Hell’s Kitchen slot machine review
After Trillionaire and Street Fighter 2, NetEnt has now released its third slot that takes a brand as its model or implements it as a slot. In this case, it is Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen TV Show. The Hell’s Kitchen slot is aimed primarily at fans of the popular show and appeals to all players who care about good food.
A spoiler right away: Hell’s Kitchen is a low-volatility slot that serves purely as a pastime and good entertainment. You should not expect high winnings. However, this does not have a negative impact on our Hell’s Kitchen slot machine rating. The slot itself is kept in a red tone that suggests dimmed light. There are lamps above the 5 reels and the winning symbols consist of various dishes that make your mouth water.
The card symbols J to A are followed by caramel pudding, a cocktail, a burger and the classic English dish Beef Wellington. There’s a dish to suit every budget. You can eat in this restaurant for as little as 10 cents, or spend 400 euros on an exclusive dinner.
The windows to the right and left of the grid have red and blue glasses, respectively, which you will notice at the latest when the free spins start. Then you have to choose whether you want to cook in Team Blue or Team Red, just like in the TV show. Fun Fact: Not only the popular TV show is called Hell’s Kitchen, but also a restaurant in Las Vegas, which is located right next to the big gambling halls. Seen in this light, the restaurant becomes its own slot. The name of the slot could not have been more fitting.
Hell’s Kitchen Slot Bonus Features
Two Hell’s Kitchen Bonus Features await you, of which the Ramsay’s Wilds Feature gives you random Wilds in the base game. During the free spins, you get a real TV show feeling when you play in one of two teams and are also rewarded with Gordon’s Bonus Game as the winner.
The Wild symbol is represented by the HK symbol and substitutes for all other regular winning symbols.
Scatters can land on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 and trigger the free spins when three or four land at the same time.
The first feature you will encounter is the Ramsay’s Wilds feature and serves you 5 to 7 wilds on random positions of the grid. You will witness a funny animation in the form of flying knives, while Ramsay himself speaks a few words about it.
Land three or four scatters on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 to receive 10 or 15 free spins respectively. During Hell’s Kitchen free spins, the screen splits you into two 5×3 grids with the red team on the left and the blue team on the right. Before the free spins start, you can choose the colour. Then the game starts and below the two grids on a large table, different symbols appear with each spin in the form of exquisite food: x2 or x3 multipliers or wilds in one of the two colours. These bonuses are credited to the corresponding team.
At the end of the feature, you receive the winnings of both teams. However, if you chose the team that won more at the beginning of the feature or if there was a tie, you receive an extra bonus, the Gordon’s Bonus Game. This is a Pick Me Bonus. 15 different dishes appear on the screen, behind which you can find cash prizes worth 2x, 3x or 5x, but also x2 or x3 multipliers or rivets in the form of an X. You can keep choosing dishes until you have won more. You can keep choosing dishes until you have revealed 3 Xs, then the game ends.
Hell’s Kitchen Jackpot
There is no Hell’s Kitchen jackpot. However, this low-volatility slot is not aimed at winning a jackpot, but rather serves as entertainment.
Payout Ratio (RTP) and Volatility
The Hell’s Kitchen payout ratio is 96.07%, which is a good payout for a slot with low volatility. It is no wonder that the Hell’s Kitchen volatility is rated low, as the slot based around the popular TV format is meant to entertain cooking fans and provide a relaxing evening. Thanks to the good Hell’s Kitchen RTP and the features, however, the winnings still don’t come up short.
Play for free
We will inform you here if we find Hell’s Kitchen free spins in casinos with free spins as a gift after the release of the slot. Those who know the show will probably be able to do without the slot demo, for all others we recommend testing the game without obligation on our site.
