Kanpai Banzai Slot (Playtech)
Playtech seems to be tapping in unfamiliar territory, with their latest sushi-themed slot machine. From the look of things, Kanpai Banzai borrows a lot of inspiration from the Japanese culture.
The slot is 5x4 reels with a massive 1024 ways to win. I like the creativity that Playtech has applied to this slot, and especially the features that are well sprinkled across the game.
Some of these features include cascading reels, wild reels, scatters, and some multipliers. The highest payout potential that you can expect with Kanpai Banzai is 10,000x the stake.
Betting and Prizes
Kanpai Banzai has something for everyone when it comes to betting prizes. For example, you only need as little as $0.10 to activate the 1024 ways to win that area available. However, if you are a heavy wager like me, Playtech allows you to use as much as $500 per spin.
Payouts are very good in Kanpai Banzai, or at least the game’s potential is on the high side. There is no guarantee, especially with slots that can pay a lot, but here we’re looking at rewards of up to 10,240x the stake.
I like the RTP of 96.10% that Playtech has offered for this slot game.
Kanpai Banzai Slot Features
It is becoming quite common for modern slot games to use Cascading Reels. This is the same style that Kanpai Banzai uses.
It works by removing any winning symbols and replacing them with new ones. In case there are additional wins that come as a result, then the game triggers additional cascades. This goes on until there are no more combos to form. Each new cascade means improved features.
The game starts you off with a regular spin, but afterward, you start getting some wild reels. As you continue getting more cascades, you will finally get to the 7th cascade where you will be awarded two wild reels.
From the 10th cascade, the game allows you to play permanently on the 2nd and 4th reel wild. Additionally, all wins get a 2x multiplier which helps in boosting your winnings.
A Pot Wild (a more regular wild) will appear on the 2nd or 4th reels.
Kanpai Banzai has a bonus game as well which is referred to as the Tasty Fish. This bonus game can be triggered via the help of the slot’s scatter symbols.
Theme & Design
The slot game uses the Sushi theme which is more synonymous with the Japanese people. This is a unique theme that I haven’t seen on a lot of modern slots, but Playtech was able to pull it out so well.
The Royals appear first, followed by some sushi dishes, Golden Koi scatter, and the pot wilds.
I enjoyed playing Kanpai Banzai, and the slot game seems to have very good potential, especially with the use of the wilds and Cascading Reels.
The RTP is within what is offered by other modern slots, and the top payout is not as bad even for high rollers.
