Wasabi San is the title of a Microgaming online slot game with a Japanese sushi restaurant theme. Wasabi is a Japanese plant whose root is used in cookery; it has a very strong horseradish-type taste and is often used within sauce to accompany raw fish. This fast-paced game features 5 reels and 15 pay lines, plenty of Japanese imagery and a fitting soundtrack, as well as two decent bonus features to keep you entertained.

The reel symbols feature a Bonsai plant, a Japanese man and a Japanese lady (the more valuable icons), alongside 5 varieties of sushi dishes consisting of raw fish, seaweed, rice and vegetables (the lower win symbols). The close up symbol of the green chef is the wild, and he will substitute all symbols within Wasabi San slot apart from the scatter and bonus symbols. Watch out for an impressive animation featuring the rather menacing-looking green chef, whenever he creates a winning combination by way of substitution.

The bonus symbol is the yellow puffer fish. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of these on an active pay line from left to right will activate the Fish Market Bonus. During this bonus, you must three fish from the fish market; each one will reveal a prize.

The scatter is the Wasabi symbol and these will reward with free spins if you land 3, 4 or 5 of them anywhere on the reels. This round consists of 10 free spins with all wins tripled, and the great news is that not only can these free spins be retriggered, but the Fish Market Bonus can also be triggered during the free spins session. If this occurs, you’re bound to be in for a big win!

Verdict

I really enjoyed playing Wasabi San, with its unusual theme and good bonus features. I found that I managed to trigger the free spins bonus round very frequently – which was great – however, the Fish Market Bonus was much more difficult to activate. Nevertheless, this is an entertaining game and I particularly enjoyed the animations when landing enough wilds or scatters to kick off the two bonus games.
