Big Time Gaming got us used to some impressive slot machines, and Extra Chilli is no different. Not only is this a slot with a spicy Mexican theme, but it pays accordingly as well, and it’s got a unique layout that you’re going to find only in Big Time Gaming releases.
The game relies on 6 reels, which can have as many as 117,649 ways to win active. You can play it cheaply enough, but if you do go to its maximum bet setting, you could potentially win as much as $1,000,000 during certain features. Speaking of features, you have free spins, the fireworks wild, expanding multipliers and symbol drops. Expect a game with high volatility.
Betting and Prizes
Don’t worry about that large number of ways to win. Extra Chilli delivers them all to you in exchange for bets as small as $0.20 per round. If you want to win more, you can set up bets of up to $50. No matter how many ways to win you get, the wager will be the one you choose.
If we’re looking at the biggest rewards that the slot delivers, then we have to go directly to the free spins, which are capable of paying up to 20,000x the total stake. This can be turned into a $1,000,000 jackpot, a very impressive top prize that only a few slot machines can ever deliver.
Extra Chilli Slot Features
Obviously, this isn’t your standard slot machine. You get more reels than usual, 6, and each one can have a different number of symbols on it. You could end up with a couple of hundred ways to win, or you might get as many as 117,649 in one round.
Once a winning combination forms, the symbols involved are taken out and others are brought in to hopefully create new wins for you, all from the same initial paid spin.
Fireworks Wilds are present and they are used in the game as substitutes. With so many potential ways to win, having this feature active is more helpful than in any other title.
Sometimes, the reels will get symbols with gold letters on them, which together will spell HOT. You need the three letters on the reels, to get access to free spins. The feature starts off with 8 rounds, but each additional letter from the word HOT will give you an extra 4 spins. The free spins get an extra feature as well, one that increases the multiplier for each new drop of the symbols that occurs as part of the same round. The multiplier will reset to 1x once you finish getting winning drops.
Another feature that is connected to the free spins will see a bowl of chillies appear on the screen, during regular spins. When you get 3-4, the total number of free spins goes up by 4 or 8. There is a Free Spins Gamble available here, which can help you get up to 24 free spins, or you could end up with zero.
Theme & Design
The Mexican Chilli theme is not a new one, and yet developers continue to use it in new slots, so it’s probably quite popular with players. For the game’s symbols, they chose fireworks, gold letter symbols (H, O and T), multiple symbols with chillies in them, plus six standard playing cards.
I think that most players will consider Extra Chilli to be a very enjoyable release, provided that high-volatility slot machines are fun for them.
