Extra Chilli Megaways is a 6 reel slots game that is 3 symbols high. However, the number of symbols that make up a reel can change at random, with the potential for each reel to contain 7 symbols. The game does not use traditional paylines, instead it operates with a maximum of 117,649 different possible “megaways”, playing from left to right.
Extra Reel– Below the reels there is an additional set of symbols. This adds a symbol to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to help create additional wins.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Fireworks”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters.
Scatters – The “Hot” symbols are Scatters. To trigger the game’s Free Spins feature you need to spell out “H”, “O”, “T”, across the reels, with the Scatter symbols. When you do so you will be granted 8 Free Spins with 4 additional Free Spins for every extra Scatter symbol that you land.
Feature Drop Symbol – Each time the “Feature Drop” symbol appears on the reels it will reduce the amount you have to spend to trigger the Feature Drop. The amount can reduce by 2, 1, 0.5, 0.4, 0.3 or 0.2, if you are betting 1 Euro per spin.
Reactions – Every time you land a winning combination the symbols involved will explode and are replaced by a new set of symbols, giving you an additional chance to win. Reactions will continue until you fail to land a winning combination.
Free Spins – During the Free Spins feature, for each reaction that you land you will be awarded a win multiplier, which will increase by one after each reaction.
Free Spin Scatter – The Free Spin Scatters are carts filled with gold and will only appear in the carts set above the reels. 3 Scatters will win you an additional 4 Free Spins and 4 Scatters will win you an additional 8 Free Spins.
Free Spins Gamble – After trigger the Free Spins feature you can gamble your 8 spins in an attempt to win more. You land on a green section you will increase your free spins to 12 but if you land on a black section you will lose free spins, possibly even them all. You then get the chance to do so again and can win up to 24 free spins in the process. If you drop to zero free spins the feature will end.
Feature Drop – At any point during the game you can pay to play the Free Spins feature. When this happens you will be awarded 8 Free Spins. You will need to pay 50 times your bet to trigger the Feature Drop and jump straight into the Free Spins.
Extra Chilli Megaways sees you enter deep into the heart of chilli country, which one can only assume, given the music that accompanies the game, is Mexico. The game looks great with a vibrantly coloured market place acting as the background, whilst the symbols are equally bright in colour and well detailed. The game comes with a number of interesting features, including a free spins gamble and a pay to play option. Both of these are high risk features and could cost you big. If you choose to play them, you have to take this into account. There are free spins, cascading wins and shifting reel formations, all to keep you engaged as you play. As for the house edge, at less than 4% it is offering decent value for money, making this a game we would recommend.
