A name like Chilli Heat can mean only one thing, yes, we’re off to Mexico in this 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Pragmatic Play. It comes with a streak spin-style re-spin feature as well as a Free Spins feature that can award unlimited free spins. Play on all devices from between 25p and £125 per spin.
Set against a street scene backdrop including cactus plants and chillies, the reels include lower value A to J symbols alongside glasses of Tequila, Tabasco sauce and a Chihuahua dog. The best paying standard symbol is the guitar-playing hombre who awards 8 times your total stake if you land 5 on a payline.
The Chilli Heat logo is wild, replacing everything bar the scatter and money sack symbols. These unusual money sacks each have a monetary value on them and are central to 1 of the 2 features on offer in Chilli Heat.
Money Respin feature – this is triggered when you land 6 or money piñatas symbols on the same spin. You’ll then be taken to a new set of reels. The money piñatas from the triggering spin will be locked in position and you’ll be awarded 3 respins. The reels here are made up of blanks or sacks – land a sack and it joins the cluster and you’ll receive 3 more re-spins. The feature continues until you run out of respins or you fill the reels with money sacks.
Free Spins feature – the second bonus offering is a straightforward free spins round. You’ll receive 8 free spins if you land the sunshine scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin. The lower value playing card symbols are removed during the feature. You can re-trigger more free spins infinitely or land the Money Respin feature from within the free spins too.
Chilli Heat is a jolly old slot. The design is bright and bold and the brass-heavy, mariachi soundtrack works very well. We enjoyed the features too, especially the Re-spin feature which has the potential to deliver some top action. The variance here is in the medium range.
It might not offer scorching hot volatility but Chilli Heat can still deliver a kick. We really liked this game – well designed and offering 2 fine features, this Mexican adventure serves up some spicy entertainment. If you like Mexican themed offerings, Taco Brothers from ELK Studios and Grim Muerto by Play ‘N Go are recommended.
