With many of the familiar flavourful symbols that you would associate with a Mexican themed slot, Chilli Gold, spices up your gaming experience with the 5-reel, 4-row and 40 fixed paylines slot from Lightning Box that has up to a 5,000 coins on a payline!
It's getting hot in here!
Set in the hot Mexican sun, the reels explode with symbols that scream Mexico to vary degrees but all help to set the stage for a fun slot. From top to bottom you will find the sombrero wearing Mexican armed with a chilli pepper, donkey, parrot, maracas and guitar symbols. Beneath these in the payout table are the admittedly less thematic 9, 10, J, A and K poker symbols. The graphics are bright and colourful drawn in a cartoon style that makes them amusing. The music for this slot is mainly limited to triggered features with a distinctively recognizable Mexican them. The sound effects are also more prevalent during triggered features with the sound of a talking Mexican or hee-hawing donkey for some amusement.
Red-hot chilli wild and gold chilli wild
The slot features two different wilds whose appearance depends on whether you're playing normal games or free games. During normal games the red-hot chilli wild will replace all symbols when appearing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels and may appear as stacked. Free spins can be unlocked with the appearance of this symbol in numbers of 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 giving you a sizzling 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 or 21 free games. The alternative gold wild symbol will appear on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th reels for a greater chance at winning larger prizes.
Feel the heat!
Chilli Gold allows wagers of anywhere from €0.40 to €200 and is optimised for mobile so you can play it on your iOS or Android device if you choose. Payline wins are calculated by taking the coin value multiplied by the number of coins as indicated in the pay table. The top payline win is 25x, but the next best is 6.25x and lower from there so expect that you will need to win simultaneous paylines during the normal games to make the slot worth playing which is why it is important that the game offers 40 paylines. I found that I was able to trigger the free games on occasion and it is here they you are most likely to win prizes of any significant size because of the possibility of more stacked wild symbols. The variance is closer to a medium since you will likely win less often, and anything large is much more difficult to come by. Overall, the theme is fun and the best thing is that you can try the game for free beforehand to see if the slot feels right to you.
