The Chilli Pop game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. The game does not use paylines and instead pays in symbol clusters. A symbol cluster is made up of 3 more identical symbols that connect either vertically or horizontally.
Wild – The “Pinata” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols other than the “Mule” symbol. Wins are multiplied by the number of “Pinata” symbols that make up a cluster. A board filled with “Pinata” symbols will award a bonus win.
Free Spins –The “Mule” symbol is the game’s Free Spins symbol, triggering the feature when you reveal 3 of them anywhere on the reels.
Exploding Wins – After a winning combination, the symbols that have formed that cluster will disappear and new symbols will drop into place, giving you another chance to win on a single spin. The process continues until you do not reveal a winning combination.
Free Spins – The number of Free Spins you are awarded is determined by the number of “Mule” symbols that you reveal. You can trigger a minimum of 5 Free Spins with 3 “Mule” symbols right up to a maximum of 26 Free Spins with 15 “Mule” symbols.
During the Free Spins feature the “Mule” symbol no longer triggers free spins, instead they increase the size of the grid that you play on. If you can collect up to 70 “Mule” symbols then you can play on a grid that is 8×8. The grid will slowly increase in size and the bigger the grid gets the more “Mule” symbols you need to collect. Exploding Wins will remain in play for an additional cascade per spin during this feature.
Double Up – After any win you can risk what you have earned by pressing the Double Up button. You bet 50% of your winnings and will win based on the toss of a coin. You can attempt to double up as often as you like.
Buy Feature – You can skip straight to the Free Spins feature and be awarded 10 free spins if you are willing to spend cash on the “Buy Feature”. The amount you will have to spend is displayed on the button.
