Extra Chilli Review
Extra Chilli can actually be seen as a new variant of the hugely popular game Bonanza, which is why it is sometimes called Bonanza 2. On the whole the slots are very similar, and Extra Chilli is a kind of accelerated variant. In addition, Extra Chilli still offers a high variance, a higher RTP, and an endless amount of possible ways to win! Keep reading if you want to know everything about this game.
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game can vary between 96,15% and 96,82%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
Extra Chilli is set in a cheerful Mexican village. It concerns a slot machine with 6 reels and a number of rows that alternate per spin, so that the number of possible ways to win varies per spin. These possible ways to win are also known as ‘megaways’. A further 4 symbols appear per spin below the playing field. All options / settings are on the right side of the playing field. From top to bottom: The ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature, your bet, the settings, autoplay, and the ‘spin’ button.
How does Extra Chilli work?
So there is a different number of megaways per spin. This can be up to a total of 117,649 ways to win as there are 6 reels and a maximum of 7 rows (7x7x7x7x7x7). Combinations can be formed from the first roll, but it does not matter how they are formed. Hope for nice combinations with as many equal symbols as possible, so that the prices rise quickly! You can also unlock a free spin bonus by spinning 3 or more scatter symbols in 1 spin (H, O, and T symbol), but you can also buy this bonus round directly. They have also added a so-called ‘Gamble feature’ so that you can try to increase your free spins.
How do you play Extra Chilli?
As always, you will need to determine your stake first. This bet can take on different values between 0.20 euros and 40 euros. After this you have to try to make nice combinations with equal symbols or to reach the bonus round.
The basic symbols consist of the 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. The premium symbols consist of different types of pepper, namely a red, blue, green, and purple pepper! The wild symbol has the usual function in which it can take on any other symbol to help you complete combinations in this way. It looks like a pot with flares. The last symbol that we highlight here is the scatter symbol. This can be an H, an O or a T.
The prices depend on the symbol and the amount of that symbol with which you form the combination. The basic symbols from the card game can pay you 0.8x to 1.75x your bet. The green, blue, and red pepper pay out between 2x and 7.5x your bet for a 6 of a kind. The purple pepper is by far the most valuable pepper. For six of the same you get 50x your bet!
One of the more famous features is the Cascading Reels feature. This feature ensures that participating symbols of winning combinations disappear from the playing field. In its place will be new symbols. This gives you a chance to win new winnings within your same bet. This process continues as long as you keep making a winning combination.
So the goal is to collect 3 scatters or more to unlock the free spin bonus! With 3 scatter symbols you are entitled to 8 free spins, and for each extra scatter symbol you get 4 extra spins! Each combination yields a +1 for the multiplier! As a result, prices can of course increase enormously! The high volatility of the game is best reflected in this bonus round. The prizes can be really high, but you can also just win nothing.
The gamble feature gives you the opportunity to increase the number of free spins. However, you also run the risk of a much lower number of free spins. So be careful!
Buy a bonus feature
With the ‘Feature Drop’ you can buy the bonus round directly, so you can skip the basic game. Unfortunately, this costs you 50x your bet, so you will not easily make a profit. However, the price may be even lower if you spin BTG symbols during the Feature Drop!
Max win & Rating
A fun fact about this game: The maximum winnings are unlimited! So it can be gigantic! In addition, the game scores 4/5 stars.
This game is also based on another game (Bonanza), but it is certainly no less good. By using the fun features of that game in combination with new features they come a long way. In addition, the game works great and huge prizes can be won.
