This title is quite a tattle tale and you may have already guessed what the slot is about – hot and sunny Mexico and all the chili you could possibly eat! The background of the slot is very rich in details, and the theme deserves nothing less – set against a picturesque Mexican pueblo, the reels are actually a part of the market stand and the symbols are a clever cross between the classic gems and actual chilies.
With unique design comes unique structure – Extra Chilli is one of the developer's MegaWays slots which means that the number of paylines is massive and changes on every single spin, reaching up to 117649 ways to win! Ay ay ay!
Play Extra Chili
Purple, red, blue and green gem chilies are the highest paying symbols and your will be particularly glad to see the purple symbols in the combination of 2 to 6. With the maximum number of Purple Chili on the reels, the stake is increased 50x. The Red Chili increases the stake by 7.5x, and the Blue and Green will double the bet.
How to Play
The slot has an extra reel that's placed underneath the main slot columns – each time the players click on the spin button, four extra symbols will appear on the lower reel and potentially form additional winning combinations with all the icons on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. When that happens, all of the symbols that are a part of the winning string will be removed from the screen and new icons will take their place.
The bets are manually selected, ranging from £0.20 to £40, and, if after all that spinning and budget managing you feel like taking a siesta, Auto Play feature can activate up to 100 spins.
The good news is that you do not have to interrupt your snooze to stop the auto mode – just enter the loss or single win limit and leave it to the machine.
Strategy & Tips
A great thing about Extra Chilli is that the player will not always have to wait around for the feature to be unlocked – those who are willing to cash out will be able to actually buy the feature.
The Scatter icons are the three letter icons H, O, and T; when all three appear on the screen, the player will trigger 8 Free Spins. If a new Scatter icon lands during the Feature, 4 additional rounds will be added to the total number of spins.
Winning streaks are, of course, always welcome, but consecutive spins are particularly generous in Extra Chilli since the multiplier will increase with every next win for as long as the valid combinations are formed.
The Free Spins wheel will pop up after the Free Spins are already triggered, offering the player a chance to win more freebies or collect the one that's already awarded. If you select “Collect”, the feature will start immediately, while the “Gamble” option will grant extra spins and a new chance to spin the wheel.
Feature Drop option enables the players to buy the feature at a certain price instead of waiting for their luck to take its natural course.
Big Time has definitely made an effort with Extra Chilli, starting with the design and graphics, all the way to the bonus features and a dandy RTP of 96.82%. The slot can be played across multiple platforms – mobile and PC – and the element of surprise introduced with MegaWays is quite refreshing, not to mention that you are free to purchase the bonus feature if need be.
