Sumo Spins arrived in May 2018, as a slot machine that was created by Red Tiger Gaming. The developer, an increasingly popular one by all accounts, is offering here an Asian theme that will take quite a bit from Japanese culture. This is evident from the symbols and the Sumo inspired characters themselves.
There will be a bigger than average game area to play in, which features 4 symbols for each of the 5 reels, while 40 active lines are always going to be in play for them. There are rewards of 1,000x, or up to $12,500, to be won inside, but the features involved are not to be ignored either. Those include nudged reels, power rolls, respins and a Sumo Showdown with three different wilds on the reels.
Betting and Prizes
Nothing has changed in the way of betting, for this slot machine from Red Tiger Gaming. As does every other game of theirs, the range will be $0.20 to $500 for the full bet, though the line bets do vary in value based on the layout that was chosen. In Sumo Spins, with 40 active lines, the line bet should have a maximum value of $12.50.
Moving on to prizes offered, it’s a reward of 1,000x that can be obtained during the best parts of the game. Given the line bet available, that’s a $12,500 jackpot that we’re looking at for Sumo Spins.
Sumo Spins Slot Features
The Sumo Wrestlers are the ones that will bring you the various cool features offered by the game. To do that, they need to appear on the reels and apply their own powers to the current round.
Red Rikishi: this sumo wrestler has a red outfit and he’s going to use his ability to nudge the reels, so that winning symbols are pushed into the right positions. You will get a chance at some big wins with its help.
Blue Rikishi: his ability is to roll around on the reels, bringing you a guaranteed win for the round.
Green Rikishi: he will award multiple respins, for the round in which it appears on the reels.
Sumo Showdown is the feature that you trigger when at least two Rikishi characters appear in a single round. The three characters now serve as wild symbols, in a free spins feature that could prove quite valuable to you.
Theme & Design
Sumo Spins will feature its very own brand of theme, an Asian inspired design and images of multiple Sumo wrestlers and various Japanese inspired objects. The graphics are high-end, as I expect to see in any release that’s making its way from Red Tiger Gaming’s studios. Besides the three very rare images of the Sumo Wrestlers that may appear on the reels, others include images of paper, bowls of food, buckets of water, tags with Japanese writing on them or bowls of rice.
Behind the five reels, you see an image of a dojo, a place where the Sumo wrestlers can train in a special ring which is shown at the bottom. I think that you will enjoy the graphics in this new Red Tiger Gaming slot, it’s something they always seem to do very well at.
Sumo Spins is a fairly interesting release, an Oriental themed game with unique features and excellent graphics that you’re going to enjoy.
