Extra Chilli Megaways™ can now be added to the list of Tequila, Margaritas, and even Carlos Santana as being great things that have a Mexican theme. This Megaways™ video slot from Big Time Gaming is the follow on slot from Bonanza, and with the reel modifying Megaways™ mechanic in action this game can produce up to 117,649 ways to win across its 6 reel and 7 row format.

It's a colourful affair with Extra Chilli Megaways™ as BTG have gone for a full on Mexican theme, and boy have they made a good job of it. The game is encased in a market barrow and with the sounds in the background further setting the scene you can almost smell the chilli and spices.
The lower half of the paytable consists of royal card symbols 9 through to the ace with pays as low as 0.1x, and as high as 1.75x when wins are formed. The premium pays are all chilli symbols which are coloured green, blue, red, and purple, with a 6 of a kind win paying 2x, 2x, 7.5x, and 50x respectively.
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 on Extra Chilli Megaways™, with the highest bet coming in at €40 a play. There are a total of 9 bet sizes to play at that range from €2 down to the minimum stake, this is impressive on BTG's behalf as the average amount of stakes within this range tends to be 6. We feel a large selection in this area is key to supplying the player a stake they are both comfortable with, and one that is equal to their bankroll.
FEATURE TEASE FROM THE CASCADING REELS ON EXTRA CHILLI SLOT
FEATURE TRIGGERED VIA THE CASCADING REELS ON EXTRA CHILLI MEGAWAYS™
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 the 117,649 ways set up. Each time you land a winning combination with this reel mechanic, the symbols involved in that win 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 Megaways™, so 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.
EXTRA CHILLI MEGAWAYS™ SLOT FREE SPINS FEATURE
FEATURE TRIGGERED FROM HOT LANDING ANYWHERE IN VIEW ON THE REELS ON EXTRA CHILLI MEGAWAYS™
8 FREE SPINS AWARDED FOR A BASIC FEATURE TRIGGER ON EXTRA CHILLI SLOT
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 slot now gives you the opportunity to gamble your free spins, these gambles are as follows.
GAMBLE 8 SPINS ON EXTRA CHILLI TO WIN 12
GAMBLE 12 SPINS TO WIN 16 ON EXTRA CHILLI
GAMBLE 16 SPINS TO WIN 20 ON EXTRA CHILLI
GAMBLE 20 SPINS TO WIN 24 ON EXTRA CHILLI
Choosing to gamble your free spins on Extra Chilli Megaways™ 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.
Initial pie gamble - 8 free spins - win and receive 12, lose and the feature is over.
2nd pie gamble - 12 free spins - win and receive 16, lose and the feature is over.
3rd pie gamble - 16 free spins - win and receive 20, lose and receive 8.
4th pie gamble - 20 free spins - win and receive 24, lose and receive 12.
EACH WINNING CASCADE WILL ADD X1 TO YOUR MULTIPLIER DURING THE FEATURE
MULTIPLIER INCREASING AFTER A WIN
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.
BTG COINS LAND IN THE BASE GAME TO REDUCE THE FEATURE BUY COST
FEATURE CAN BE BOUGHT FOR 50X YOUR STAKE ON EXTRA CHILLI SLOT
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.
Players from the United Kingdom should note that the feature buy on this, or any other slot is no longer available.
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. Play Extra chilli slot demo for yourself and see what you make of this exciting and nail biting game.
