Sumo Kitty is a video slots game by Bally Technologies, with a theme featuring a sumo-wrestling kitty. The kitty is featured at the top of the reels, and is known to jump or stomp, which causes the reels to shake. The top of the reels also features an oriental archway and details on the special features.
The reels below are slightly smaller, featured on a black background and offering symbols of both a classic Asian nature as well as standard poker value playing cards.
Some of these symbols include the game’s logo, the sumo kitty, a golden carp, bonsai tree, and a lotus flowers. The game offers multipliers, free spins, and a special wild hot zones feature.
The Game Basics
Sumo Kitty does not operate on standard pay lines, but, instead, offers a 1024 ways of winning feature. Matching three or more symbols on adjacent reels from left to right will be counted as a winning combination.
There are four rows on each reel. Wins are generally between five to ten times the bet placed for landing five matching symbols, but they happen frequently. For winning combinations of five matching symbols, players will be treated to a short animation sequence.
Also, the game allows for the addition of a wild symbol. The wild symbol in Sumo Kitty will be able to substitute any of the other symbols and thereby help players complete winning pay lines and make up the best possible winning combinations with the highest payouts. Wild symbols also appear in hot zones.
In order to begin playing, players will have to select their bet level, with a maximum of fifty coins that can be placed, much like on Canadian slots machines and other territories have to offer.
The Sumo Kitty Hot Zones
The Sumo Kitty video slots game includes a special wild symbol feature known as hot zones. Here, Tetris-like puzzle symbols will fall on to the reels, with the symbols they land on turning into wild symbols.
This feature helps players complete more winning combinations and receive frequent payouts. The hot zones may fall over the entire reel or they may only fall on to part of the reel.
The Free Spins Feature
Players will be able to access the free spins feature in Sumo Kitty by landing three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. The scatter symbol is represented by the logo, and can only land on the first, third, and fifth reels. Once this feature has been activated, players will be able to choose one of three free game options.
They may either be rewarded with twenty free spins that have a two, three, or five time multiplier, ten free spins that come with a five, seven, or ten time multiplier, or, finally, five free spins that come with a ten, twelve, or twenty time multiplier.
The free spins round also features additional multipliers that may appear in certain hot zones. The free spins feature may be re-triggered, and gain landing three or more of the logo symbols will reward players with an additional five spins with the same multiplier as initially chosen.
