Sushi Bar is a November 2012 culinary arts-oriented product of Betsoft Gaming. This oriental html5 video slot adaptation of the Japanese hospitality industry showcases the fictitious Chef Haru’s mastery of the Japanese cuisine named sushi. It is luck-themed too. Sushi Bar’s only lookalike in Betsoft’s portfolio is titled Dim Sum Prize (September 2020).
Thematically similar games from rival developers: So Much Sushi (September 2014) from Microgaming, Sushi (December 2014) from Endorphina, and Hey Sushi (June 2020) from Habanero. Five symbols (hand fan, tea ceremony, chopping board, makisu table mat, and A) require two, three, four, or five combinations. Four symbols (K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Sushi Bar Game Characteristics
Sushi Bar is set in an izakaya (Japanese food joint), where chef Haru is also the counter attendant. Its partitioned 5X3 grid is embedded on a wooden, cream drafting board. It has 25 left-to-right fixed paylines (thirteen options), ten symbols, eleven coin sizes, five bet levels, 715 total bets, a win multiplier, free games, no side game, and regularly pays from $0.05 to $5000.00.
Sushi Bar has two special symbols and eight ordinary symbols. Special symbols: exclusive to the second and forth reels, the substituting wild is tempura sauce in a bottle and sauce dish; and the free games-unlocking scatter is a Japanese cherry-based uchiwa hand fan.
Ordinary symbols: Japanese tea ceremony; chopping board with knives and raw salmon; makisu table mat alongside paired chopsticks; five different sushi food presentations—red A-shaped varied sushi servings; orange K-shaped sushi rice garnished with parsley; green Q-shaped sushi rice served with salmon; red J-shaped oshizushi; and purple 10-shaped sushi rice alongside salmon.

Three hand fans offer eight free games, four hand fans offer 12 free games, and five hand fans offer 20 free games whose winning combinations get X2 win multipliers. Sushi Bar’s non-progressive jackpot is $450000.00.
