Enjoy some hot and spicy Mexican-themed action in Extra Chilli, a super volatile video slot from Big Time Gaming. This trip south of the Rio Grande is played using a 6 reel game engine where the number of ways to win can reach a massive 117,649. You’ll also find symbol drop respins and a feature round where you can win up to 50 free spins with dynamic multipliers. Play this super-hot video slot on all devices from between 20p and £50 per spin.
The action takes place in a Mexican street market with the reels flanked by garlic bulbs and rows of red-hot chillies. Joining the usual lower value A to 9 symbols are 4 more rewarding chilli symbols. The purple chilli is the best of the quartet, awarding 50 times your bet if you land 6 on adjacent reels. There’s also a wild that replaces all of the standard symbols.
This video slot uses a symbol drop game engine so winning symbols are removed and new ones drop in and replace them. The continue as long as a new winner is created. This is known as the Reactions feature. The MegaWays engine means that the number of symbols on each row changes with each spin. The number of ways to win changes too. At their maximum they can offer 117,649 ways to win.
Hope to see a trio of golden letters that spell out the word HOT as this triggers the game’s Free Spins feature. You’ll then go on to play 8 free spins. Each extra letter on the triggering spin awards another 4 free spins. Once the bonus is triggered, you can try and gamble and land even more free spins. If you’re feeling lucky the bonus wheel can offer up to 24 free spins. Lose the gamble and you’ll lose all your free spins.
Helping your winning chances when the feature actually begins is a dynamic multiplier. This increases by 1 with each successive symbol drop win you land. A winless symbol drop sees the multiplier revert back to its standard 1x. Keep an eye out for the bowls of chilli that can appear under the reels during the feature. Landing 3 or 4 of them on the same spin deliver an extra 4 or 8 free spins.
If you like, you can use the Feature Drop feature which costs you about 50 times your bet – the price is displayed to the left of the reel set.
We’d hope that a video slot called Extra Chilli would be volatile and it doesn’t disappoint on that score. This is as fiery as you’d expect and the variance is very high. You can win 20,000 times your bet on each spin or free spin though! It doesn’t have the visual polish of the MegaWays video slots from say Blueprint Gaming, but Extra Chilli has its charms.
The mariachi-style soundtrack is a real toe-tapper and the features offer enough variety to keep things moving along nicely. This fiery Mexican-themed video slot isn’t a thing of beauty but if delivers some pretty hot action if you like volatile play. I would recommend you try ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers or Thunderkick’s Esqueleto Explosivo if you want a taste of Mexico.
