Based on the delicious Japanese cuisine, Kitchen Drama: Sushi Mania is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Nolimit City. Played using a collapsing reels game engine, it comes with cloning wilds, extra collapses and a free spins round with extra wilds. Play this medium variance game on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The design in Kitchen Drama: Sushi Mania is done cartoon style and works rather well. The reels are set within a chopping board. There you’ll find 4 lower value condiment symbols as well as 4 higher value food symbols. The best of these is the salmon which pays 25 times your stake if you land 5 in combination.

The game is played using collapsing reels – after a winning combination hits, the successful symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. These keep on coming as long as a new winner is created. There are a number of extras to get stuck into here.

Bunshin Wilds feature – look out for the ninja style symbols that land on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game only. Each 1 of these wilds that hits clones itself and spreads onto 2 new positions. A new symbol collapse then follows. If a new collapse occurs but no new winner is created, these wilds drop down 1 position at a time.

Kamisabi Second Chance feature – land 3 collapsing reel wins in succession and you’ll receive extra collapses which gives you more opportunities to create a winner and hopefully trigger the below feature.

Wild Sushi Free Spins feature – those free spins are triggered by landing winners made up of the salmon, rice and soy sauce symbols in the same set of reel collapses. You’ll then receive 10 free spins. Once triggered, the sushi ingredient symbols can turn into sushi wilds.

Kitchen Drama: Sushi Mania is quite an unusual game. It’s a well-designed one though. The cartoon imagery is nicely done and the soundtrack has just a hint of Japan. It all comes together well. It’s a similar story with the gameplay – the cloning wilds land regularly and deliver plenty of action.

We found the Wild Sushi Free Spins feature harder to come by. The extra wilds in play can make it worth the wait though. The variance here is in the medium range with top payouts of 697 times your stake on each spin/free spin.

We enjoyed Kitchen Drama: Sushi Mania. Combining classy sound and visuals with some entertaining gameplay, it’s a tasty all-round performer. If you’re feeling peckish, I recommend you try Nolimit City’s 2nd slot from the series, Kitchen Drama: BBQ Frenzy, which offers big potential wins of 1,050 times your stake on every free spin.
