Sumo Kitty Slot
The Sumo Kitty online slot is a 5-reel, 1,024 pay line (yes, really!) slot game from Bally. This game is an online version of one of Bally's most popular land-based casino slots. The star the slot is – as you might have guessed – a rather portly pussy cat who seems up for a bout or two of Sumo. If you're not sure what Sumo is, it's a Japanese form of wrestling involving very large men, a lot of chalk and some very unfetching nappies. Two men at a time go at it until one of them falls over or pushes his opponent out of the ring.
The symbols in Sumo Kitty are playing card values from nine to ace, and other symbols associated with the far east, such as bonsai trees and koi carp. Unusually, the playing screen in Sumo Kitty consists of a 5 x 4 grid, and not 5 x 3 as is standard on most 5-reel slot games. All possible pay lines are in play, giving (4x4x4x4x4=) 1,024 winning lines. You start the game by selecting your wager from 0.01 to £16.00. Your total stake is always x50 your wager. Hit 'Spin' when you're ready.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts start at 5x for three nines, tens, jacks or queens, to 250x for five 'Sumo Kitty' symbols.
The 'Sumo' symbol acts as the 'Scatter' symbol and pays 100x if you land three or more anywhere on the reels. This also triggers the free spins feature. A player has the choice of 20 free games with 2x, 3x and 5x wild multipliers, 10 free games with 5x, 7x and 10x multipliers, or 5 free games with 10x, 12x or 20x multipliers.
Sumo Kitty has a unique 'Hot Zone' bonus feature. As the reels spin, random geometric shapes similar to those found in Tetris fall from above the playing screen. If, when the reels stop, any part of a shape lands on the playing screen, any symbols within the shape turn into 'wild' symbols. A wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols aside from the Scatter symbol.
The Sumo Kitty online slot really is a great little game, and the 'Hot Zone' bonus feature really does add to the excitement. The graphics have a nice cartoon feel and are not completely OTT, although if you do manage to land the free spins feature all hell breaks loose. In short, Sumo Kitty is likely to have you purring with pleasure!
