Extra Chilli Slot
- A spicy slot from Big Time Gaming
- Unique reel layout helps set the game apart
- Big focus on free spins but not much else
Extra Chilli slot is a spicy new game from Big Time Gaming with a South American theme that’s set in a very pleasant marketplace. The focus of the slot is obviously chillies, which seems a bit random but works nonetheless. One of the more interesting features of this slot is the Megaways game engine which offers a maximum of 117,649 ways to win, a very large number indeed.
Moving on to the gameplay, we have an unusual 6×5 layout as well as an additional smaller reel that sits underneath the others which I’ll go into more shortly. You can play Extra Chilli slot for a minimum of 20p a spin, up to a relatively low maximum of £50. Just bear in mind this is a pretty volatile slot with a maximum win potential of 20,000 your original stake, one of the highest payouts we’ve seen in a while. In order to play this slot, you must spin the reels and try and get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 (lowest value)
- Green Pepper
- Blue Pepper
- Red Pepper
- Purple Pepper (most valuable)
Additionally, there is a Wild symbol which substitutes for all of the above symbols in a winning combination. There is also an extra reel that this slot features, having symbols that are below reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Every winning symbol is part of a reaction and is replaced by symbols coming from above on the reels and from the right in the extra reel.
Extra Chilli Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. 3 Scatter symbols, spelling the word HOT, will award you with 8 free spins. For every additional scatter symbol another 4 free spins are awarded. During the free spins, you will be awarded with a multiplier that starts at 1 and increases after every reaction. Furthermore, a free spins Scatter symbol can appear on the extra reel appearing as a big bag of chillies, with 3 of these giving 4 extra free spins and 4 giving an extra 8 free spins.
Free Spins Gamble. This will present the free spins gamble wheel, giving you a chance to win up to 24 free spins. You will have the option to collect or gamble. If you collect, you will start the Free Spins Bonus with the current number of free spins awarded, however, if you gamble, the wheel will spin with a 50/50 chance of winning another 4 free spins. You can continue to do this up to a maximum of 24 free spins. If you land on a slot which has the number 0, you won’t win any free spins.
Feature Drop. This gives you an opportunity to buy the feature at any time, with the price of the feature showing on top of the Feature Drop button. If the price is reduced to zero then the feature will automatically trigger. Feature Drop symbols may appear in the reels at any time and this will reduce the price of the Feature.
I think Extra Chilli slot is a fairly standard slot despite having a more unique reel setup. It has a clear focus on free spins which for many is great, but for those who prefer some more in-depth and unique features, you might prefer other games such as Rocket Men slot. The design of the game is quite nice, although a little bit cluttered for my liking but the colours look vibrant and the setting is pleasant. The gameplay, as I said, is focused on free games with the added option to buy the feature with the price coming down as Feature Drop symbols appear during the game. While I quite like this idea, I think this slot from Big Time Gaming could have really benefited from something a bit different to help it stand out but for those who like their free games, it’s probably worth checking out, especially when you consider that a whopping 20,000x win is up for grabs!
