Dim Sum Prize Game Characteristics
Dim Sum Prize is set in a wooden corner food stand that is located among Chinese market stalls. Its non-partitioned 5X3 grid is embedded on the food stand’s counter. There are ten left-to-right fixed paylines, ten symbols, eleven total bets, transforming and locked symbols, free games, free re-spin, no side game, and pays from $0.01 to $562.50.
Dim Sum Prize has three special symbols and seven ordinary symbols. Special symbols: the substituting wild is a tea serving—a red tray consisting of a steaming blue teapot, blue cup, and a bamboo teaspoon—that offers free re-spins; the retriggerable free games-triggering scatter is a red “coupon” tag; and special symbol-revealing feature is a golden bamboo dumpling steamer.
Ordinary symbols: rice bowl topped with sardines; chicken feet; rice noodle rolls; prawns; dumplings; three boiled eggs; and green cabbage rolls.
These are the Dim Sum Prize bet sizes: $0.05 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.40, $1.25, $2.50, $3.75, $6.25, $8.75, $12.50, $17.50, and $22.50 (maximum bet).
The $22.50 bet offers these Dim Sum Prize payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Rice bowl pays $45.00, $225.00, and $562.50. Chicken feet pay $22.50, $67.50, and $180.00. Rice noodle rolls pay $22.50, $45.00, and $90.00.

Contrary, the wild tea serving is locked for one free re-spin only after each appearance in the regular game. Drawn bamboo dumpling steamers do burst to reveal coupons or tea servings.
