Tasty Street slot review
Tasty Street slot is a double-take on the interpretation of the word 'tasty' as at first glance you see items of food on the reels, which are set over a picturesque and colourful street scene full of cafes and food bars. If you've ever seen Netent's Koi Princess which appears to represent some kind of Japanese Hentai Porn in theme, well that's how we get the alternative definition here as we are faced with attractive 'tasty' young cartoon girls, and even worse when they form any wins you get very authentic sounding giggles and moans of ecstasy! So warnings aside, will this tasty street have a healthy effect on our balance or leave us with a sickly sweet taste?
On the reels...
Tasty Street is quite a simple game and despite the questionable subject matter the graphics and animations are quite decent, with gentle soothing music as we play. All the icons are single with the exception of the top-paying Yellow Girl who gives us 33.33x bet (1000 coins) for a 5-of-a-kind win thus would pay 1000x bet for the full screen.
There are Wilds on all reels and these not only double all wins they appear in but pay a sizeable 133.33x bet (4000 coins) for the full line of 5. The other symbols are the Red Girl awarding 800 coins for your 30-coin stake, Green Girl 600, Blue Girl 400 and Pink Girl 200. No card values here as we have Shrimp at 100 coins, Sponges at 80, Fish Steak at 60, Pastry Balls 40 and finally Chillis at 30 for the full line.
There are scatters on all reels and be warned that when 2 or more appear you get a pay and the girl shakes her breasts, giggles and seductively puts a skewer of suspiciously-shaped red food into her mouth. Yes, this game is quite near the knuckle I'm afraid. Anyway, 3 or more will trigger 10 free games at 2x multiplier and another enhancement - the Wilds appear stacked on all reels now too. This means that not only are Wild wins multiplied by 4x effectively now, but if you got a full screen of them you would get 30 lines x 4000 coins x 2 which to give you the quick answer means a staggering 8,000 x stake win! Oh yes, you can retrigger them too.
Tasty Street slot; well let's just say I usually bemoan juvenile themes and graphics, but this has gone far too far the other way in my view! If your wife/husband or significant other hears you playing this game at the wrong moment then they would likely think you're up to no good and looking at some dodgy websites - seriously. So now let's forget the graphics and animations (which are actually quite good disregarding my concerns) and look at the mechanics. You get guaranteed free spins unlike some recent Microgaming slots such as Tarzan, you get decent hits on the reels due to large line values and there is colossal potential in the free games so we have some volatility for a change.
The RTP is over 96.3% and the bonus is exciting knowing the possibilities, so the game itself is quite good especially as you're really playing a clone of their popular and proven Deck The Halls game. This street might resemble Japan's version of Hamburg's infamous Reeperbahn, but you could get a tasty wedge added to your bankroll should you venture along it...
