Few summertime pleasures compare to the aromas, sizzles and general camaraderie of the great British barbecue. Of course, the UK’s weather somewhat limits the number of al fresco eating opportunities. But thanks to the slot Ultimate Grill Thrills, you can enjoy more of the fun, more of the time.
With five reels and 20 Paylines, all backed by a cheery, summery soundtrack, this is one of the more straightforward offerings from Random Logic Games. It’s aimed at novice gamers and old hands alike.
Look forward to a progressive jackpot plus Cash Kebab, the great bonus game that stops you feeling peckish!
How to play
Visually, Ultimate Grill Thrills may not be the most stunning slot you’ve ever played, but it has a nice light-hearted feel to it, and it’s certainly not tacky. The background behind the reels shows a garden complete with some bangers sizzling on the grill, plus empty beer bottles strewn around the grass.
The base game offers little in the way of surprises. Enjoy on desktop or mobile, with coin sizes ranging from £1 to £200.
All the regular icons are related to the open-air dining theme, from barbecue mitts to grills, sauces, mustard, beer cans and forks – all of which are among the lower-paying symbols. In the level above, you’ll find a skewer, golden sweetcorn, grilled fish a burger and a hot dog. Landing five of these can yield up to 2,000 coins as mini-jackpots.
As usual, there are prizes once you land three of the same symbol on an active Payline.
In Ultimate Grill Thrills, the Wild is the naughty family dog running off with a string of sausages. Able to replace all standard symbols apart from the Scatter and bonus ones, the Wild also unlocks the progressive jackpot when you get five on an active Payline.
A blonde bikini-clad girl enjoying a drink is the Scatter, a grinning chef, the bonus symbol.
Ultimate Grill Thrills special features
Cash Kebab bonus game
The Cash Kebab bonus game, to be enjoyed once the reels have fired up, is the highlight of Ultimate Grill Thrills. It’s triggered when you land at least three of the bonus symbols. Five rounds then follow, in which you have to pick the meat and vegetable ingredients for a tasty skewer kebab to reveal a cash prize.
Collect a prize for each ingredient revealed, but the game ends when you uncover the Game Over symbol or reach the end of the five rounds.
If this round goes well, you can build on your winnings from the base game pretty easily.
Return to Player (RTP)
At 93.59%, this is below the industry standard, but we’d hope the general enjoyability of Ultimate Grill Thrills would more than makeup for that.
