Wild Hot Wasabi Slot Review

Wowza! Check out this spicy hot video slot from Lightning Games. Wild Hot Wasabi has an RTP of 96.11% and has up to 1296 different winning possibilities.

Wild Hot Wasabi is basically a 5×3 slot, with a twist. The third reel is a 4×4 grid with 16 symbols “the Reelflecta” to maximize your chances of hitting something.

You can use any of those 16 symbols when making a combo. Combos pay starting from the first reel going left to right any three or more of the same symbol.

The base symbols, in order of highest value to least, are the Japanese lady, the squid, the shrimp, the blowfish, the snake, and then A, K, Q, and J. There is also a Wild Man that substitutes for any of the base symbols and appears only on reels 2 and 4.

During respins, he may multiply up to 10x. There is also a wild wasabi symbol that can also be any base symbol. The wasabi wild only appears on the Reelfecta. Finally, you have the HOT bonus scatter. Six or more of these will trigger up respins.

Respin Action

During the respins, with each spin, it either adds an additional fixed wasabi wild or the extinguisher comes out and ends the spin. A wild respin wasabi grants an additional respin and then turns into a wild locked wasabi. If you make it to twelve squares, this triggers the megaspin.

The background of the slot is a sushi restaurant, and most of the symbols look like they would be pretty tasty with the right preparation.

The girl symbol is probably a waitress, or maybe she is there to enjoy a delicious sushi meal. And of course, the central character is the spicy wasabi mustard, a crucial ingredient for any sushi meal. The only thing missing is the pickled ginger.

Sushi may have originated in Japan, but it is popular the world over. Sushi chefs must carefully prepare the raw fish in order to ensure there are no parasites.

Graphics And Gameplay

Wild hot sushi has pretty decent graphics. The Reelfecta aspect is kind of cool, you have 16 different ways to hit that reel. And the bonus game is fun.

The theme is an interesting one and the symbols and graphical effects that accompany big wins like the man chasing the fish across the screen are pretty cool.


We’re certainly ready to bite into Wild Hot Wasabi. Definitely one of the better games we have seen lately, combining a great theme with excellent graphics and reasonable gameplay.

The Reelfecta is a novel invention, and it seems like the medium-sized jackpots aren’t that hard to hit. Overall this is a really well-designed slot and a ton of fun to play.
