Online slots with a low volatility and high hit-rate seem to never go out of style, and that's because there is an overwhelming number of players who prefer this particular type of gameplay. Super Sumo by Fantasma Games takes advantage of that by giving players this particular gameplay style in conjunction with great graphics and a funny sumo wrestler character. You'll see him go through a range of emotions and even dance on the reels in this game, and he's very entertaining.

Format and Layout

Players get a normal enough layout here with five reels and three rows. There are 25 paylines that you'll be playing on, and this gives you enough ways to win to keep things interesting without it being so overwhelming like what you'll sometimes find with games that have a lot more lines to win on. Betting is set up based on a single wager per payline, and those wagers range from $0.01 to $1. This leaves you with a total bet size of $0.25 on the minimum end and $25 per spin on the maximum end, which is a pretty solid selection that will cover all players pretty well.

Free Spins Bonus Feature

The first place to start with this game is the free spins mode. There is a Super Sumo slot symbol that's in red with red and white letters, and it acts as the scattered free spins symbol. It appears on the first, third and fifth rows only, and if you get all three on the reels at once, then you are given a set of 10 free spins. There aren't any extra goodies added to these free spins, and that might seem like a drag at first, but it's a part of the overall theme of keeping the volatility down as much as reasonably possible.

Wild Sumo Wrestler Symbol

The sumo wrestler can show up on every reel while happy and dancing, and he'll have a golden glow over him. He's the wild symbol when this happens, and he has some pretty strong payouts. You can win 500x for five of a kind, and it drops to 120x for four. Three of a kind is still worth a 30x payout. While this guy does show up on all reels, he can expand to cover an entire reel at random as well.

Re-spin Feature With Sticky Wilds

If you get at least two wild symbols on the reels, then you'll initiate a re-spin feature. All of the wilds will hold in place, and the reels will spin once again. The idea here is for players to get an extra chance of hitting winnings, but there's more to it than that. If you get at least one more wild on your re-spin, then you'll get any payouts you're owed along with yet another re-spin. This process continues until no new wilds show up, and this is a great feature that adds a lot of value to the regular gameplay by giving you extra payouts.

The Four Sumo Symbols

The same hilarious sumo wrestler who appears as the wild is also the four main symbols in this game. When he appears with a red glow around him, he's angry, and he'll pay out 200x for five of a kind. He appears in three other states as well. When he's blue, he's sad. When he's purple, he's showing fear. When he's green, he's showing disgust. The blue, purple and green versions all pay out 100x for five of a kind, which are pretty reasonable wins.

Card Rank Symbols

Five card rank symbols round out the bottom end of the pay table. The pays for these symbols isn't particularly high, but it's isn't super-low either, so we think it falls right in the middle, which is great for preserving the low volatility that this game is centered around.

The five card rank symbols are the yellow A, the red K, the purple Q, the green J and the blue 10. All five of these pay 60x for five of a kind, and they are all stylized in a Japanese-inspired font that looks great and fits perfectly with the rest of the game.

Our Thoughts

Super Sumo by Fantasma Games has really great graphics with a hilarious sumo wrestler character who shows up in five different ways on the reels. Players will get a kick out of watching him dance to celebrate the wild symbols showing up. Aside from the visual appeal, the gameplay is also solid with a low-volatility focus and a very balanced pay table. This isn't a groundbreaking slot by any means, but it's a good example of a few simple features and awesome graphics helping to produce a solid, low-volatility gameplay experience that appeals to a fairly large audience.
