Chilli Heat was a slot game by Pragmatic Play that was released somewhere in 2018. And has been received pretty well.
Now Pragmatic Play has released a new Megaways version of this slot game.
Chilli Heat Megaways comes with 6 reels which can be a total of 7 symbols high and 4 symbols on top of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. So you can get up to 200.704 ways.
Chilli Heat comes with cascading symbols during normal spins. Meaning all winning combinations are removed and new symbols fall on top for the option of another win.
During any normal spin wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. And there are also special money bag symbols which appear on all reels and have a cash prize on them.
Re-spin and collect feature
If you get 6 or more money bag symbols during any normal spin you will trigger the bonus.
You will start with 3 re-spins and all money bag symbols already triggering the bonus will stay on the reels. Also reels 1 and 6 are now locked and have to be opened to also start spinning.
Each time a new money bag symbols appears, it is held and the re-spins reset to three.
On the special reel of 4 symbols above the reels you can now receive special bonus symbols that will increase your wins in different ways.
- Lock symbol will open reel 1
- Lock symbol will open reel 6
- Up en down arrows will make the corresponding reel 7 symbols high
- Round down arrow will collect all money bag prizes on the corresponding reel and adds it to your total
- Square down arrow will collect all money bag prizes on the screen and add it to your total
- Round X will multiply all money bag prizes on the corresponding reel by x2, x3, x5 or x10
- Square X will multiply all money bag prizes on screen by x2, x3, x5 or x10
The bonus ends when you fill the entire screen or when the re-spins are done.
If you know the original Chilli Heat slot game you might notice that the free spins feature is now gone. Which I think a lot of players won’t like.
I don’t mind it that much. I think the re-spin and collect feature is a lot of fun. Of course it’s nothing new, we’ve seen a lot of games now featuring this type of bonus, but I like it.
I think the modifiers on the top reel make the game just a little more fun than a normal re-spin and collect bonus.
Overall, the game is not very original and also really nothing new. But the game is colorful and offers a fun bonus feature. So check the game out for yourself and see what you think.
