Ninja Chef — Intro
Is it a ninja? Is it a chef? No, it’s Ninja Chef! Powered by iSoftBet, and inspired by the legendary Fruit Ninja game that almost the whole world was hooked on to, Ninja Chef has become the talk of the town. Well, is it as good as we remember Fruit Ninja to be? No it’s not. It’s better! Like miles better.
Not only does it retain the immense fun from the actions of slicing food in order to get points (now money), it also comes with many new bonus features that elevates your gaming experience to a whole new level. What iSoftbet has literally done is combine an amazing mobile slot with an all-time favourite mobile game.
If you thought that the fun ends there, you can’t be more mistaken. With Ninja Chef, the stakes have been dramatically raised… You won’t just be playing for some worthless points that you can use as bragging rights. In fact, you will be playing for the biggest prize of 1,000x your wager that are up for grabs!
About The Slot
Before we get on to some slicing and dicing of food across your reels, lets quickly get through the basic game mechanics in Ninja Chef. For starters, Ninja Chef is a 5 reel slot that is mated with 30 fixed paylines. Economics wise, Ninja Chef offers bet sizes from a mere 30p to a huge £300 per spin.
That said, this mobile slot will be of interest to both casual players and more serious players just the same. The flexible wager customization options will also assist you to stick within your budget without much trouble. The game also offers the auto-play function on which you can set the number of spins, and win/loss limits.
Most of the symbols on Ninja Chef are designed after the Japanese cuisine, so those of you who are into Japanese food are in for an eye feast. Payouts are somewhat frequent in this game; you can expect a win in every three to four spins, and the win amounts aren’t that shabby either.
Maintaining your bank balance would prove to be a little difficult from the base game alone, so a little patience will be required before you are able to trigger the bonus features. Oh, keep an eye for the puffer fish as it is the highest paying symbol in the game. Get five in a winning payline and you could be going home with 1,000x your wager!
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
Visually, Ninja Chef is a little funky in nature, and completely fits the theme at hand. The unique symbols, fonts and cute ninja characters around your reels will grab your attention right away. The visuals are further enhanced by the frequent appearance of the Wild symbols. Their transitions in and out of your reels are just a sight to behold. The game is smooth throughout, on all types of devices regardless of platforms. I loved how Ninja Chef performed perfectly on my three year old Android phone without any lags.
One commendable feature in Ninja Chef is the soundtrack that accompanies the gameplay. It adds to the fun of playing this game by uplifting the mood with its beats, and it’s especially entertaining when you are rewarded with multipliers. Unlike many others slots that take the easy way out and just have the same tune on loop over and over again, Ninja Chef offers one that is genuine and works in tandem with the bonus features and gameplay of this game.

Game Features: Win Multipliers, Extra Spins!
This department is where Ninja Chef truly shines. The variety of features are methodically designed in order to deliver the highest possible payouts on top of working hand in hand with the theme of this game. For starters, there are the Wilds. Similar to other slots, the Wilds in Ninja Chef will replace all other symbols, except the scatters to complete winning paylines.
The base game also features a whole range of win multipliers that will be spinning alongside other symbols on your reels. The multipliers range from 2x to 5x, and in the event that you get more than one on your reels, they will be stacked to give you colossal wins!
Next up are the extra spins. To trigger this feature you will need a minimum of three Ninja Chef Bonus symbols anywhere on your reels. Once this feature is activated, you will be given a board of different foods that you will have to slice from. Once you have sliced three of the same type, you may be rewarded any one of the three variations of extra spins. The details are as follows:
- Puffer fish extra spins: You will be rewarded 15 extra spins with higher chances for the wilds and expanded wilds to appear during gameplay; unfortunately, there will not be any win multipliers
- Beef Steak extra spins: You will be rewarded eight extra spins that come with a 3x multiplier that is applied to all wins
- Salmon Sushi extra spins: You will be rewarded five extra spins that come with a staggering 6x multiplier that is applied to all wins
While the three different extra spins look the same, albeit different characteristics, it is important that you know that the win potentials are vary drastically from one to another. From calculations, the Salmon Sushi extra spins sports the highest potential even though it comes with the least spins. Put it this way, every spin you win in the Salmon Sushi is subject to a 6x multiplier, which means you will need to win six rounds in the Puffer Fish extra spins just to earn the same amount!
Ninja Chef — Lots Of Slicing!
Ninja Chef is one of the tastiest mobile slots around at the moment. Compared to iSoftBet’s other titles, this slot is extremely unique in its own right. To be honest, it doesn’t even feel like an iSoftBet production. In my opinion, the developers of this game have decided to leave their comfort zone of producing safe games and have ventured into making innovative slots that take on the very best in the industry.
In Ninja Chef, it’s the detail to attention that has made it as successful as it is. Look closely, and you will realise how this game takes on after the legendary Fruit Ninja game we used to enjoy a while back. Besides that, it’s the little wins that are thrown in your way when you are least expecting it and the massive multipliers that randomly appear on your reels that make this game really fun to play.
