Kitchen Drama: BBQ Frenzy
NoLimit City, one of the shooting stars among the software developers, presents us with Kitchen Drama: BBQ Frenzy, a slot machine, which is the second slot in a kitchen series. This is actually very unusual, as the developer has only ten slots at the time of writing this review. However, we got use to unusual approach of the Swedish-Maltese company anyway. Since its inception, NoLimit City slots have caused quite a stir in the online casino industry.

Kitchen Drama: BBQ Frenzy review
Playing the first part, Kitchen Drama: Sushi Mania – we had a lot of fun. Since most of us enjoy BBQ more than eating chopsticks, it is hardly surprising that we were already very excited about these slot machines in advance. BBQ Frenzy continues where Sushi Mania left off. This time we are not on the dulcimer of a sushi chef, but on the green meadow and views from above the grill. The grill grate represents the reels. There are 5 of them, each showing three symbols. There are a total of 20 paylines which are made up of the different symbols.
Thankfully, NoLimit City has completely dispensed with the boring card symbols and offers us relatively funny barbecues signs, which are also nicely animated. From a technical point of view, slot loads quickly and runs smoothly like on all different platforms, directly in the browser. No app to download is required. Sound effects are used rather rare and there is no annoying music, only a little banjo-jingle which fits well into nature and does not disturb. On the left and right you will find Wild BBQ Meter and the Fiery Chili Meter.
Kitchen Drama: BBQ Frenzy RTP
As already mentioned, settings are relatively simple. You can bet there for as little as one pens per payline. Since the 20 lines are always played all at once, the minimum bet per spin is 20 pens. You can risk a maximum of 100 Pounds per spin. Despite the many extra features, the slot is really quick to learn. Nor can we complain about a theoretical payout ratio of 96.7% (RTP).
After you set the bet, all you have to do is press the start button. If everything goes slowly, the reels can also roll faster and shorten the lap time. With the Autoplay settings it is possible to generate automatically between 5 and 100 spins. You can also tune these settings by entering a stop-loss or stop-win. All 20 paylines are scored from the left and at least three of a kind are required on one line in a row to receive a payout.
Options are at the bottom of the screen and are just as simple. On the left there is the bet per round meter, in the middle the start button, as well as the auto-play function and on the right the account balance. The complete layout of the playing field is clear and unambiguous. The contrast is good and even playing Kitchen Drama BBQ Frenzy on your mobile phone is as much fun as playing on your PC at home.
For the low winnings 3 different grim looking pieces of charcoal are required. Chanterelle, aubergine and paprika are medium profits, while the corn on the cob, the steak and the Chili Indians really let the money roll.
What makes the machines really exciting are the extra features. Besides the Chili Wild there are of course some other special functions and interesting extra features.
- Sheriff Badge Wild – the Sheriff Star triggers the Gunsmoke feature which instantly activates the Chili Spirit Spins. Symbol can also replace all other symbols at the same time.
- Sheriff Wild – when the steak is promoted to sheriff it takes on the function of a sticky. This feature is only available in the Wild BBQ Spins. The Sheriff Wild symbol then appears on the reels and jumps one field further to the left with each spin until it reaches the first reel. Meanwhile, the Sheriff has a normal wild function and can replace all other symbols. 2 Sheriffs mean a 2x multiplier, 3x a triple up to a maximum of 15 times.
- Fiery Chili Spirit Spin – on the right side of the field is the Fiery Chili Meter. This is fed with the winnings during a normal game round. If you win three times in a row, this feature is activated. A symbol activates an additional game which is placed several times on the playing field.
- Wild BBQ Spins – whoever wins with the steak, the pepper or the chanterelle in the basic game, triggers the Wild BBQ Spins. That means 5 extra spins, where the steak becomes Sheriff game.
- Wild BBQ Bounty – this feature is triggered randomly. One or three ingredients are thrown onto the barbecue, which can make a profit, or even wild BBQ spins are triggered.
BBQ Frenzy by NoLimit City is a slot machine with a fast gameplay that is simply fun. With a maximum stake of 100 Pounds and rather mediocre winnings, high rollers are probably not addressed, but “normal players” will find everything they could wish for.
