Spend some time with the chef in his kitchen preparing some delicious dishes. As you help him, you may also find numerous free spins, huge payout multipliers, and possibly even a progressive jackpot.
What’s Cooking is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and up to 30 paylines. The reels are set against a background of a chef’s kitchen and you can just about make out pots and pans piled up on either side. The symbols are all theme related and include a flaming frying pan, something watery on some kitchen scales, a green saucepan, a steak, an egg, an onion, a tomato and a lettuce.
The oven is the wild symbol, it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the scatter and bonus symbols, to help and form winning combinations.
The chef is the scatter symbol while the bonus symbol is a cookbook.
When the bonus cookbook symbol lands on reels one and five simultaneously the bonus game begins. First, you need to choose from the meats on display in order to determine how many free spins you receive and then you need to choose from some sauces to determine the payout multiplier. The free spins will then begin. You can retrigger the free spins and the choices will then be made automatically.
If you are playing through the casino software then you can also opt in to the Dollar Ball Progressive Jackpot game. To be in with a chance of winning the jackpot you will need to place a side bet with each spin. Then you need to choose five numbers between one and forty-nine. With each spin of the reels a lottery style draw will take place and you will win prizes depending upon how many numbers you have matched. Matching between one, two or three numbers awards you a fixed payout of 1x, 2x and 25x respectively, matching four numbers awards you with 1% of the progressive jackpot and matching all five numbers wins you the entire jackpot.
