Betsoft Gaming, a leading supplier of casino entertainment software, has announced a brand new slot, Phở Sho. It’s a food-themed slot machine that the company claims delivers an “overload.” Phở Sho comes with a collection of features, including Wilds, Free Spins, and the trending Hold & Win feature, which debuted on the Golden Dragon Inferno slot.
This thrilling gameplay happens on a 5×4 game board with up to 20 winning lines. Forming a win is relatively easy, with the 10-A card icons created using chopsticks being the low-paying symbols. They can reward you with 0.5x to 7.5x the stake for matching at least three of them on a bet line.
Players can also find fresh foods at the busy street stall, including limes, chillis, spring onions, noodles, and beef. These high-value icons reward players with 1x to 200x the stake. Remember, the tied noodles can reward you with 1x the stake for matching only two on a bet line.
The chef is the game’s wild symbol and will be busy cooking tasty treats for players. When he lands on the reels, he can replace all other paying symbols and comes with a similar payout to the noodles. This automatically increases your winning chances even further.
As the food action continues to gather steam, the Gold coin bonus icons can appear anywhere on a reel. These represent the start of the thrilling Hold & Win bonus game, with prizes ranging from 2.00 to 1,000. Remember, the Hold & Win bonus game starts when six or more coins appear on the reels.
When the bonus coins lock into place, players receive three respins. Each respin can add more bonus coins to the reels, with the coins becoming sticky. And yes, the respins will reset back to three whenever you land more coins.
The bonus game ends if players don’t have any respins left or the bonus coins cover the entire reels. Then, the game will reward players with some of the hottest winnings by adding the coin values. Additionally, players can trigger the lucrative Hold & Win mechanic during the base and bonus games.
Betsoft Gaming adds more ingredients to the unique flavour by including the Free Spins feature. You can unlock this feature by landing at least three exquisitely prepared bowls of scatters on the reels. If this happens, the game will reward you with up to nine free spins. Even better, players can retrigger the Free Spins and Hold & Win during the bonus rounds.
Phở Sho has an average return to player (RTP) of 96.20%, slightly above the standard value of 96%. The maximum payout in this game is 4,000x the stake.
Anastasia Bauer, Betsoft’s Head of Account Management, commented: “The Hold & Win bonus game has proved to be a big hit with players across all demographics. Phở Sho uses this feature beautifully but adds so much more to the experience. By including Free Spins, the high chance of the features overlapping each other puts Phở Sho into a league of its own. We are anticipating very positive feedback from our clients.”
