Gameplay review of Chilli Heat Slot

Something that almost all of us forget these days is how lucky we are to be able fairly effortlessly try cuisine from all around the world, especially in the UK. It is almost as if people have forgotten that not even a century ago it would be exceedingly difficult to try, say, Lebanese or Thai food from the comfort of your own town or city. Back a few hundred years ago you would actively have to go on an expedition to the far reaches of the Earth to try these things, nowadays all it takes is an expedition down your local high street. It is amazing, and one of the cuisines to take off the most around the world is undeniably the monumentally exciting world of Mexican cooking.

Oh yes, there is no arguing with this, as the Mexican food market is probably the biggest in the world right now. Just look at the amount of high street restaurants selling everything from nachos to burritos, all the way through to enchiladas and quesadillas. And anyway, a few bites of some of this outrageously tasty food and you will realise exactly why it has become so popular. The Mexicans manage to wed the intense flavour of things like chilli peppers with the warm comforting embrace of melted cheese and refried beans – it really is a match made in heaven, no denying that! As always with the online slot industry the crowd of developers aren’t exactly ones to sit around and let these wonderful thematic opportunities go by, precisely why new kids on the block Pragmatic Play have decided to conjure their new Chilli Heat slot game. You can judge the theme from the title, but this slot has a hell of a lot more to offer than tasty Mexican food. Read ahead for a lowdown.

About Chilli Heat and its Aesthetic

When we first heard about Chilli Heat we naturally assumed it would take Mexican cuisine as its main focus, with a special emphasis on those wonderfully intense chilli plants. The game’s logo also aids this assumption, with a chilli plant making up the “C” of the slot’s title, and a fiery looking sun face appearing behind it. In actuality, however, Chilli Heat pays homage to all aspects of the wonderful Mexican culture, not just its food. As such the slot background is made to look like the main square of a small Latin American town, one in which there is a fun and friendly fiesta going on in the middle. To make things even more exciting there is a crowd of locals enjoying the festivities, and these people will shout and cheer whenever you stumble across a nice winning combination on the standard 3×5 reel grid matrix configuration.

As for the symbols themselves, it doesn’t take a genius to work out what these will look like. Everything that can pop up on the reels is directly symbolic of various aspects of Mexican culture, something that perfectly complements the slot setting we are introduced to right at the start of the game. As such you can expect to find things like Tabasco, mariachis, tequila, peppers and smiling Chihuahuas on the reels. Of course, as with the vast majority of online slots these days, there are also a range of high value playing cards that make up the low paying icons during Chilli Heat – something that won’t be at all suprising to experienced online slot players. We really enjoyed the aesthetic Pragmatic Play have gone for here, especially the game background of a lively Mexican village fiesta, it makes for a very exciting play indeed! We should also mention that the graphics here are absolutely top-notch, with everything rendered in perfect 3D.

About Chilli Heat and its Bonus Features

A game with the name Chilli Heat really ought to have some fiery bonus features included too, something that Pragmatic Play have more than made sure of. The first thing to mention is Chilli Heat’s wild symbol, and this takes the shape of the game logo itself, ensuring that it is very hard to miss. The wild symbol here can substitute with any other icons other than the bonus and scatters, and will help create some juicy wins on the 3×5 reel matrix. A nice touch here is that they will regularly appear as stacked on a full reel, something that can result in quite the pay out, even when you weren’t expecting anything from it. Next up is the scorching sun icon, which acts much like a scatter does in many other online slots. If you have the luck of finding a few of these you will be rewarded with 8 free spins, and the nice thing here is that all low paying symbols disappear from the reels. Not bad, eh?

Chilli Heat also possesses a dedicated bonus symbol, something that sets it apart from many other online slots on the market these days. These take the shape of big money bags, and finding 6 of them on the screen will trigger the Money Re-Spin bonus, a feature that can prove highly lucrative indeed. All other icons will disappear from the reels, leaving only a variety of moneybags remaining. Here you will be given 3 re-spins, and every time a new money bag locks into position you will be awarded a further 3 re-spins. A truly stupendous bonus round!
