The Hot Chilli 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 for Hot Chilli is 3.48%.
Hot Chilli is a 3 reel slot that is 3 symbols high. The game uses 9 standard paylines, playing from left to right.
Wild – The “Flaming Chilli” is the slot’s Wild, which will substitute for all symbols other than the Tofu. The “Flaming Chilli” symbols can also come with a multiplier, between x2 and x5.
Tofu – The Tofu always will pay out, even is you only land one on a single spin. The symbol is not high paying but if you can land three of them on a winning payline then you will make a return on your bet.
Combinations – You can form winning combinations, not just by landing identical symbols across a payline, but also combinations. One combination is the Sweetcorn, Mushrooms and Tuna combination. If you land any of these symbols together on a winning payline then you will form a winning combination that will return part of your bet. Another combination is the Rolled Meat and the Shrimp. A combination involving three of these symbols across a winning payline will award you with a win.
This slot is all about a bubbling bowl of Szechwan soup and riches that can be plucked from within. The reels are that bowl and the ingredients are your symbols. Every time you form a winning combination three sets of chopsticks will dive into the bowl and retrieve the winning ingredients. This is a simple game but one that has been well designed. There are Wilds and they can come with a multiplier and there is the chance to mix and match certain symbols into winning combinations but there is nothing else going on here. No Free Spins and no bonus. One thing that is worth mentioning is the house edge, which at less the 3.5% is offering excellent value for money.
