Chimney Sweep is an August 2014 soot damage cleanup-inspired video slot developed by Endorphina. Themes include: house cleaning, unseasoned wood burning, luck, kitchen ventilation, fairytale, wood smoke, and creosote buildup. An incomparable slot game in Endorphina’s portfolio, its rival games include Chimney Stacks from Bally Technologies, Courier Sweeper (December 2019) from Evoplay Entertainment, and Weed Whacker from Pragmatic Play.
The slot’s name is borrowed from the noun “chimney sweep”, which refers to a worker who specializes in soot clean-up from smoke vents, especially chimneys. Five symbols (blonde chimney sweep, pig, bird, 9, and fireplace) require two, three, four, or five winning combinations. Eight symbols (horseshoe, rainbow, weathercock, A, K, Q, J, and 10) require three, four, or five winning combinations.

The animated 3D graphics include: the chimney sweep exhaling soot, fireplace zooming in then a tongue of fire segueing into a shooting star over a medieval cityscape, flying crow, sparkle effect, clover-chewing pig, and a rainbow tracking a glittering tracer.
