Chilli Heat has lifted our spirits for some tacos and possibly a shot of tequila (or two) over the years. Unfortunately, in 2021, the Tabasco sauce of this slot no longer seems so spicy, so the wise Pragmatic Play created a younger Megaways-style brother for it. Honestly, we are glad that they made such a decision, because now players have a chance to dance to Mariachi’s music at Pragmatic Play casino again!
Viva Las Chillies!
This is the epic rebirth of the original Chilli Heat, which became a hit, and we’re going to see if it does just as well. But keep in mind that our attitude will be biased, as Megaways mechanics never disappoint.
We need to head south to Mexico, where food burns the tongue and Mariachi cheers up. However, we need to be very careful because Chilli Heat Megaways is highly volatile!
The provider did not change the theme, did not touch the design and the soundtrack, so in terms of the audiovisual presentation, nothing has changed here. This is probably for the best, because the slot looks colorful and carefree. It reminds us of the popular Spinata Grande, but with its own charm.
Spice things up!
Let’s head out onto the streets of Mexico and see what’s new. Here, not only the number of reels and paylines has changed, which have increased due to the Megaways mechanics, but also the volatility. The sequel is highly volatile, with 6 reels and up to 200,704 paylines.
The base game has tumbling reels that give us a chance of multiple wins tied together in a single spin with consecutive tumbles and wins.
Wilds are presented in the form of a flaming logo and can replace standard symbols as they usually do. The Scatters are Money symbols, and the Respins Bonus Round is typical for Hold & Win. You get 3 respins with 1 type of symbols that stick to the reels when you land and reset your respins back. The round also offers a few special symbols that add flavor to the whole thing.
The RTP is set at 96.50%, which is slightly above the industry average. Another thing that provider has included is the ability to buy the bonus feature or double your chances of winning a feature – use it or not? The ball is in your court!
Pragmatic Play recently paid out € 50,000 to the lucky one and surprised us again today! In their new game there is, albeit not everything, but a lot to revive the forgotten original, and if you close your eyes to a weak mathematical model, then it can be advised to all fans of Megaways.
