Review of Chilli Heat
Many online slots are based on grand ole' Mexico, and there is no shortage of well-made ones out there either. Whenever we see a new game in this popular genre, it is always interesting to see what it can come up with, and Chili Heat does a pretty good job of making a good first impression with its happy vibe and mariachi soundtrack. There is a Money Respin feature in this game, as well as 3 different fixed jackpots as well as a bonus round with the chance of endless retriggers that are available.
Across five reels, three rows and 25 ways to win, you will see a typical Mexican street, filled with chilies, cacti and houses in a typical Mexican style, and the reels are set on a typical street. This is a medium-volatile game that is mainly aimed at casual players as this game allows you to place bets ranging from 25p to £125 per spin across all platforms and devices.
Despite being slightly above the industry average, this game offers a 96.5 % return on investment, and the house edge is only 3.5 %, which leaves you with a home advantage of 3.5 %. If you happen to land the biggest jackpot, you can win up to 1,000x your stake, and this will only happen when the Money Respins feature is activated. There are quite a few bonus features in this game, and they are nicely balanced between the base game and the free spins bonus round in order to make it quite entertaining all the way through.
What symbols are there?
This game features a cheerful guitar-playing hombre as its highest value symbol, however there isn't a much difference between the high and low value symbols. There are a number of well-known Mexican items represented by the symbols, and there are also low value royals as well. In this article, you will see the paytable for Chilli Heat:
-Guitar-playing hombre - Pays 8x for 5 on a payline
-Chihuahua - Pays 6x for 5 on a payline
-Tabasco sauce - Pays 5x for 5 on a payline
-Tequila shot - Pays 4x for 5 on a payline
-Royal symbols - All pay 2x for 5 on a payline
What are the bonus features?
It should be noted that the logo of the game here can act as the wild symbol, which will replace all regular symbols in such a way that your winnings will be maximized. However, it cannot replace the scatter or the money bag symbols, which we will address in the next section.
Money Respins can be triggered when you land at least six money bag symbols anywhere on the reels at the same time, and you will be placed on a new reel set where all of the triggering money bags will be sticky, and thus frozen into place while the respins are taking place.
It will then give you three respins during which you can only land blank symbols or money bags. As long as you keep adding money bags to the winning cluster, or until the entire screen is filled with money symbols, this feature will continue until you add no more money bags to the winning cluster. Each new money bag you land becomes sticky, and you get 3 more respins.
Spins for free on Chilli Heat
To trigger the game's free spins bonus round, you will need to land three sunshine scatter symbols on the same spin, and they must only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels. If you get three scatters in a row, you will get eight free spins to start with, and if you land 3 scatters again, you will receive a retrigger of the feature with no upper limit.
Moreover, you will also be able to reap the rewards of the fact that only higher value symbols are in play, since the royals have been removed from the game. Additionally, you will be able to trigger the Money Respins feature from within the bonus round, which can really help you to increase your total payout.
How much is the jackpot (maximum win)?
In the Money Respins feature, if you manage to complete the entire screen (all 15 positions) with nothing but money bag symbols, you will gain not only the amount of money collected, but you will also win the Grand Jackpot displayed above the reels, which is a fixed jackpot of 1,000x your stake.
You can also win two other fixed jackpots here, namely the Major Jackpot of 100x and the Mini Jackpot of 30x. There is a possibility that the money bag symbol will land all the time during the base game as well, and sometimes that symbol will land with a Mini or Major jackpot attached to it instead of the money prize. In this way, you can win these 2 smaller jackpots during the gameplay as well.
