The Chilli Heat slot game can be found at casinos offering Pragmatic Play software. Pragmatic Play are one of the newer slots game developers on the market but their products are polished and professional in feel and operation. As a standard Pragmatic Play do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game help file. For a provider that are not currently licensed within the UK market and therefore are under no obligation to publish these figures this is a significantly progressive move. The House Edge of Chilli Heat is 5.01%.
Can you take the heat?
Chilli Heat is a 5 reel game with 25 paylines and you can bet up to 10 coins on each payline.
The ‘Chilli Heat Logo’ symbol is Wild.
There are two bonus features when playing Chilli Heat. The first bonus feature is triggered when you receive the ‘Sun’ bonus symbol anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4. When this happens you will be awarded 8 free spins. During the free spins low symbols – J, Q, K and A – are removed from the reels. Free spins are played on an alternative set of reels. Free spins can be retriggered.
The second bonus feature is activated when you receive 6 or more of the ‘Money Bag’ symbol on any spin. Each spin each Money Bag symbol will show either a random cash prize or the name of one of the jackpot prizes shown at the top of the reels. When you receive 6 or more of the Money Bag symbol any wins will be paid, the Money Bag symbols will be locked in place and all other symbols will be respun on reels that only contain Money Bag symbols and empty spaces. You receive a total of 3 respins. Each respin, if you receive an additional Money Bag symbol that symbol will be locked in place and your total respins will be reset to 3. When you run out of free spins or all 15 symbols are Money bags the feature ends. At the end of the feature all prizes visible on the reels will be added up and awarded. If any symbol shows the ‘Grande Jackpot’ or all 15 symbols are Money Bags you will also win the Grande Jackpot.
While Chilli Heat is pretty enough graphically, its bonus features are not nearly exciting enough to justify what would be considered a high House Edge in today’s market. You could easily find far more diverse and entertaining slots games for significantly less than a 5% House Edge with alternative software providers. We wouldn’t describe Chilli Heat as a market leader.
