Where to play?
Pragmatic Play have been on a mission of late. That mission has been to produce a surplus of new slot machines. Ordinarily, you might expect so many slots being released in such a short time to mean that some are below par. That doesn’t appear to have been the case, though, if Chilli Heat is anything to go by.
There is a very cheesy, very predictable Mexican theme to this video slot, and whilst that doesn’t do much for originality, the three-tier progressive jackpot prizes that the game carries, and Money Re-spin feature which runs alongside a standard free spin bonus certainly show that the developers have put a lot of thought into this title.
How to play
You won’t have to try too hard to get to grips with the wagering menus in this game. Simple and efficient are the best words to describe them. You can use the plus and minus buttons to alter your stake on this 5-reel, 25-line slot, with bets stemming from a floor of just $0.25 per spin, up to no more than $125 per spin.
Wild symbol: This game uses its logo as its wild icon. Wild symbols can understandably replace all other icons in the game, save for the two bonus symbols which feature in this slot: the money bag (bonus) and sun (scatter) icons.
Money Re-spin bonus: This feature requires players to land at least 6 of the money bag icons on the reels. That sounds complicated, but they appear far more frequently than you think. When the bonus is triggered, only money bags and empty spaces will appear on the reels (with your initial money bag icons remaining frozen in place). Players get 3 free spins, but once a new money bag icon appears on the reels, the number of spins you have resets back to 3. Once no new money bags appear, the feature ends. Players can potentially win progressive jackpots, and instant cash prizes, depending on how many bags appear on the reels at the end.
Free spin bonus: Free spins are triggered when players land 3 of the sun icons (yes, the ones which moustaches) on the three central reels, so the second, third and fourth reels. This will initiate a bonus round which offers a total of 8 free games. During those spins, the high playing card icons are removed, giving players better chances to land sizeable wins. The feature can also be retriggered by landing more scatters on the reels.
To get their hands on the Grande Jackpot, players are going to need to land all 15 money bags on the reels of the Money Re-Spin bonus. Landing anything less will dish out instant win cash prizes. However, the Mini and Major progressives are won in the base game with the same money bag icons. Standard wins in the base game are petite, and seldom worth more than 8x your total bet.
Okay, so the non-progressive jackpot prizes aren’t worth much, but the progressives certainly are. The features in this Mexican-themed slot rock, and although the theme is stereotypical and predictable, the game is genuinely enjoyable and feels original. Chilli Heat has some kick to it, and players are likely to be eager to play this red-hot slot.Play With $200 + 200 Free Spins - CLICK HERE
