Chilli Heat Megaways Slot Guide
Join a colourful Mexican Mariachi man with his Chihuahua dog on the reels in the Pragmatic Play Chilli Heat Megaways slot machine.
The original Chilli Heat slot machine was first released in January 2018 and it was quite a popular pokie using a Mexicana festival theme. Much has changed for the sequel in Chilli Heat Megaways which was released in August 2021.
The graphics are much better in this version and the background vibe is more dominant visually plus you have many more features in this game that has a whopping up-to 200,704 ways to win plus a bonus buy and ante bet feature that is also is available for most countries – (bonus buys not available for UK players).
Pragmatic Play has recycled and used the original Mariachi music which is common at events and celebrations in Latin American countries. While going for an ultra-fun vibe on the reels and background you will see pleasing pastel colours like pink, purple, green and orange used predominately in the theme and symbols. The game is set on a Mexican village street during a local festival event so the vibe is one of music and fun.
Wagering and Ways to Win
The Chilli Heat Megaways can be enjoyed on any mobile device or desktop and you can wager stakes from £/€/$0.20 to £/€/$125 per spin if you like livin’ it large.
With every spin you get a different amount of symbols dropped onto the reel set. You will have from 2 to 7 on the main reel set and 4 on the very top horizontal reel set. This itself is the standard formula of the Megaways mechanic in general.
This means the ways to win changes constantly with up to 200,704 winning ways on just one spin. You will need left to right matching adjacent game symbols from the very first reel to form a winning pay.
The RTP is a constant 96.5%, no matter if you are playing in the base game, the Ante Bet or buying the bonus mode.
Look out for the premium symbols on the reels like the Mexican man, the dog or the chilli sauce bottle to win 10 times the stake made. The wild is the Chilli Heat symbol with no real value, but they substitute for all regular pays. The wild symbols will appear only on reels 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Volatility of the Game
Volatility is at a very high level and rated 5 out of 5 on Pragmatic’s lightning strike meter so it’s a win big or go broke game just like most Megaways games are.
The symbols used are A, K, Q, J, 10, 9 cards for the low pays, then the Mexican Mariachi man, a Chihuahua, a chilli sauce bottle and a tequila shot are the big paying symbols in that order.
