- Super Sumo is the debut release from Swedish developer, Fantasma Games
- Delivers plenty of opportunities to win, fast-paced action and slick animation
When it comes to online slot developers, there’s a new kid on the block: Fantasma Games. The Swedish software developer have just launched its debut slot and it’s a biggie – a super-sized, button-popping beast of a game. Super Sumo is the name and the slot is every bit as big as its name suggests.
The 25-payline game is inspired by Japan’s legendary wrestlers and, in-keeping with the action they take part in in the ring, Fantasma promises that Super Sumo will bring players fast-paced and highly rewarding action.
Playing the game
Five different sumo wrestler symbols will appear on the 5×3 board, with the reels set against a stylized background complete with pagodas, ornamental trees and more. Alongside the eponymous wrestlers, other symbols include numbers and figures typically found on playing cards; there are also wilds and bonus symbols.
When it comes to gameplay Super Sumo is one for those players that enjoy plenty of opportunities to win. For starters, matching three or more symbols is enough to net you some cash.
And if that’s not enough Fantasma has also added features such as sticky wilds, re-spins, bonus scatter symbols and a super free spins round. And, just to encourage you, the wrestlers will let out the occasional cry of “Yatta” – Japanese for “We did it”!
Playing Super Sumo will cause you to run through the whole gamut of emotions – quite possibly the very same emotions being worn on the faces of the wrestlers themselves; as you play you’ll see them smiling, looking frustrated and even dancing.
The developer has applied particular care to the look and feel of the game too. The wrestlers provide an exciting, and fun, visual theme – the animation is cutting-edge – and an entertaining soundtrack accompanies every spin of the reels. A jaunty Japanese ditty keeps things ticking over at a foot-tapping pace while you have the fun of focusing on scooping up as many wilds and bonus symbols as possible.
“We are very happy to launch our first slot which we hope should add a great gambling experience to users and which is based on something that we like and believe in.”
Fredrik Johansson, Fantasma Gaming’s co-founder
Ways to win
If you get a chance to grapple with Super Sumo – and here’s hoping you do – here are a few insider tips on getting the most out of the game.
The grinning sumo wrestler is the game’s wild symbol and will substitute for all regular symbols except for scatter. Land two or more wilds in a single spin and a respin will be triggered, with the wilds becoming sticky, just to further boost your chances of winning. Land another wild during the process and you’ll earn another re-spin.
With a respectable RTP of 95.18% and HTML5 compatibility, making the game suited to mobile play, there’s a lot to love about Super Sumo. On this evidence, Sweden’s Fantasma Games look like one to watch. Welcome, and can we have more games like this please?
It’s always exciting to see a new developer enter the market, and when they do it with the confidence seen in a game like Super Sumo, it’s an added bonus. Fantasma has clearly pulled out the stops for its debut slot launch, delivering a game that is big on action, big on wins and that looks pretty slick too. Another point that’s worth noting is that, as well as giving you a top-notch playing experience the game delivers on another, simpler level: it’s fun. There’s a cartoon-like feel to the animated wrestlers that dance across the screen, one that makes the game entertaining to play. It’s a bold first release and one that’s sure to keep players looking out for what comes next.
