Chilli Heat Review
Anyone who has tried chilli peppers knows just how spicy they can get. As such, Chilli Heat’s flaming logo certainly feels appropriate!
Pragmatic Play have set the stage for a hot-blooded online slot that only the bravest will face off against. Can this game live up to those expectations?
- Three fixed jackpots
- Lucrative Money Re-spin bonus
- Medium variance with a great payout
Everything is a little bit spicier in Mexico. They have spicy sauce. Spicy tequila. Spicily cute Chihuahua dogs! Yet, none of it compares to the king of spice itself: the chilli pepper.
Players can fool around with free spins and the money re-spin special features. Both are good, but only the latter has the potential to unlock some incredible wins.
Get particularly lucky and you will win the 1000x jackpot on top of all your other prizes!
Theme, Graphics and Sounds
The background image is gorgeous. Pragmatic Play makes sure you feel the heat of this small Mexican town. The sun’s powerful shine would blind us if the reels were not in the way.
We see a couple of cacti sitting around, with two buildings next to them. We are quite satisfied with the visuals overall. Our only complaint is the sun Scatter. It just looks a little… weird. Something about those soulless eyes.
Furthermore this release has five reels and three rows. The playing field consists of twenty-five paylines which cannot be toggled on or off at all.
Three or more matching symbols in adjacent positions starting with the leftmost reel grant the win. All wins have to follow an active payline, or else they will fail to unlock the relevant cash prize.
Find three Scatters on reels two, three and four to win eight free spins. During free spins, playing card royals are removed from the board.
That means only high value icons, Wilds, Scatters and money symbols can appear on the board. This has a double benefit.
First, it makes higher value wins more likely to appear. Second, it makes finding three more Scatters easier to do! Which in turn makes it easier to win eight more free spins. There is no limit to how many times free spins can be retriggered.
Money icons can appear on all reels, during both normal gameplay and free spins. Each symbol will have an attached cash prize.
The cash prize draws from a pool of pre-selected values. It can also match the mini or major fixed jackpot. However, you cannot gain these prizes normally.
You need to trigger the Money Re-spin bonus first! How do you do that, you ask? Simply find six or more money icons anywhere on the board.
All winning combinations are paid before the re-spins begin. Any symbol that is not a money icon is removed from the board.
A re-spin is then played. Only money symbols and blank spaces can appear during this special feature. Players get three re-spins.
During that time, you need to draw another money icon on the playing field. Successfully doing so resets the number of re-spins back to three.
The round continues until one of two things happens. Players can run out of re-spins. Alternatively, all fifteen positions can be covered by money symbols.
In both cases, the cash prizes of all money icons are added together and are granted as a single prize. If you cover the board with money symbols, you will also receive the 1000x fixed Grande jackpot.
Where To Play Chilli Heat?
RTP, bet sizes and volatility
The RTP for Chilli Heat is 96.5%. This is above the current industry average of 96%. However, it is quite standard for Pragmatic Play slots.
ou can bet between $0.25 and $125 on each spin. To change your bet, use the plus and minus buttons on each side of the spin button.
This is an excellent range of bets, which will please both casual casino members and high rollers.
The maximum win multiplier in this is game is a whopping 2,512x! This is more than we expect from a medium variance release!
A trip to Pragmatic Play’s Chilli Heat is just what you need to warm up. We initially expected a higher volatility slot with an impossible jackpot.
Fortunately, the developers managed to subvert our expectations in a good way. None of the special features in this game are unique.
That did not stop them from being fun or lucrative, though. We rate the release 3 out of 5 stars.
The title has some minor flaws but it lived up to our high expectations.
