Extra Chilli is a 6 reel slot and the follow up game to the impressive and popular Bonanza. Players have a wide range of options when it comes to choosing what stake to play at, and you can roll the reels for as low as €0.20 cents. You're sure to find a stake that matches your budget before reaching the max stake of €40.00 per spin.
The Megaways™ format has proven to be a winner with slot players, and Extra Chilli has been given that winning formula to spice up the gameplay even more in this Mexican themed slot.
To hit all of the winning ways, you need each reel to hold its maximum amount of symbols. Reels 1 and 6 can both hold a maximum of 7 symbols, and reels 2 through to 5 can hold a maximum of 6 symbols, if you achieve that set up then the bonus reel at the bottom of the screen increases reels 2 - 5 an extra position and you have the 117,649 ways.
You can see the set up for this in the picture below.
The cascading reels or reactions as Big Time Gaming call them, can lead to some impressive wins coming your way, especially if you get the all the ways set up. Each time you land a winning combination, those symbols will be taken away and new symbols will replace them, this process will keep happening until there is no longer a win on the reels.
This is again exactly the same as Bonanza and Diamond Mine and keep a look out for Extra Chilli dropping in two scatter symbols and then giving you the chance to trigger the feature from the following cascade.
The feature is triggered on Extra Chilli by the letters HOT landing anywhere in view on the reels, if this happens then you will be awarded 8 free spins. +4 symbols can also land in or drop in from any cascades you might also have, each one that you get will add an additional 4 free spins to your amount.
Unlike most slot features, Extra Chilli now gives you the opportunity to gamble your free spins, these gambles are as follows.
Choosing to gamble your free spins on Extra Chilli can be a very risky business indeed. On the first pie gamble there are 5 winning sections and 5 losing sections. Making it past this point will theoretically put the odds in your favour, as all further pie gambles have 6 winning sections and 4 losing sections.
Losing on the first or second pie gamble will result in you losing all of your free spins, make it past these and if you then lose you will receive some consolation free spins. The following scenarios can occur.
Once you have decided how many free spins to take you can then begin the free spins feature. This is exactly the same as the base game, but each time you achieve a win, it will increase your multiplier by x1.
If you can get a good run going on the cascades then you can build up a serious multiplier, this gives you the opportunity to land yourself a massive multiple of your stake if the reels drop you in a good set up.
You can re-trigger the free spins feature by 3 or 4 pots of chilli rolling in on the bottom reel. 3 pots will add 4 more free spins, and 4 pots will add 8 more free spins.
The feature buy option first appeared on White Rabbit, and BTG have decided to add it to Extra Chilli as well. This gives players the choice of whether they would like to buy a feature at the cost of 50x their stake, this option was 100x your stake on White Rabbit.
During your play on the base game you will notice BTG coins randomly landing on the reels, these coins have different values depending on their size, and each will reduce the amount it costs to buy the feature.
If the value to buy the feature reaches €0.00 then the feature will automatically drop in, and the feature buy price will return to its original amount.
Don't worry if you accidently change stake or decide you want to play at a higher or lower amount, the feature buy price will stay as you left it on each individual stake, this also applies if you bust out or decide you want to play another day.
After the roaring success of Bonanza we couldn't wait to play on Extra Chilli, and it didn't disappoint. With how the bonus round works and the way you can build up a higher multiplier, you know there is always a chance of unlocking the huge potential and hitting a massive multiple of your stake.
We again found that with these high volatility slots, that you don't have to be playing on a high stake at all to get some really good sized wins, and that certainly makes it appealing to all kinds of players.
As with any gambling it should be done responsibly, and caution should be taken if choosing to gamble your free spins.
Overall a fantastic slot from Big Time Gaming and a big hit with online players.
