Chilli Heat Megaways Slot Game Background
Pragmatic Play is the studio responsible for developing classics like Big Bass Bonanza Megaways. Like that slot game, Chilli Heat Megaways is a follow-up to an earlier slot, in this case Chilli Heat. The original boasts a 5-reel, 3-row set-up and a standard 25 paylines. With the sequel, they went above and beyond by adding an expanded game grid, updated audio-visual presentation and even more bonus features.
Chilli Heat Megaways Game Design
Chilli Heat Megaways is a 6-reel online casino game with anywhere between 2 - 8 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. The slot also offers an above-average (for a Megaways slot) of 200,704 paylines and a potential maximum payout of 5,000x the stake. Like most Megaways slots, Chilli Heat Megaways has an extra horizontal reel that sits above the main game grid.
The slot is set in a colourful Mexican street, with the sun streaming behind the game grid and bathing the street in light. The left side of the screen reveals a blue building with a zig-zag pattern and a cactus poking out of the bottom-left corner. The right-hand side shows an orange building with a triangle pattern around the door frame. In front of this stands a cactus pot, while a bunch of red chillies hang from a bracket in the top-right. The reels contain several paying and bonus symbols. The title’s logo sits squarely on the top left of the screen. Meanwhile, the Megaways counter is positioned in the top-right of the screen.
Finally, the music in Chilli Heat Megaways plays on the traditional Mariachi theme, particularly when spinning the reels.
Chilli Heat Megaways Mobile
Chilli Heat Megaways can be played on desktops, tablets, and mobile platforms like Android and Apple with a stable internet connection or mobile data. Players can also download the Lottomart app for the best slot experience possible.
Chilli Heat Megaways Slot Symbols
The royal playing cards comprise the slot’s lowest-paying symbols. Each number/letter appears in vibrant piñata colours. The 9 and 10 cards have a payout of 1.2x the stake, while the J has a slightly higher value of 1.5x the stake. Meanwhile, the Q and K have a 2x payout. The highest payout in this category belongs to the A, with a payout of 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
The remaining symbols better fit the slot’s theme. The shot glass is worth 3x the stake for 6-of-a-kind, the chilli sauce 7.5x the stake and the chihuahua 12.5x the stake. The mariachi singer has the highest payout of 20x the stake for 6-of-a-kind.
The Money symbol looks like a golden money bag and is involved in the slot’s Respin feature. The Wild symbol takes the form of the game’s logo and appears only on reels 2 - 5, substituting for all other symbols except the Money one.
Chilli Heat Megaways Bonus Features
Chilli Heat Megaways brings a street party’s worth of exciting bonuses and features to the table!
After a winning combination gets paid out, all symbols that participated in the said win disappear. The remaining ones fall to the bottom of the screen, and the empty positions are replaced with new symbols from above. This continues until it's no longer possible to land winning combinations.
Pragmatic Play may have done away with the Free Spins feature in Chilli Heat Megaways; however, the developer has replaced it with a multi-layered Respin feature.
The feature begins with the Money symbol. It appears on all the reels except the top horizontal one. It takes on a random value from a predetermined set: 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x, 10x, 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x, 75x, 100x or 250x the stake.
The Respin feature itself is activated by landing 6 Money symbols on the reels. Any winning combinations are paid, and all normal symbols are removed from the reels, leaving only the Money symbols that triggered the feature. The normal reels are replaced with special reels that contain the same number of symbols as the normal reels did when the feature started. These contain Money symbols and empty spaces. Meanwhile, the top horizontal gains a special set of symbols. Reels 1 and 6 are locked at the start of the feature and only unlocked by landing special symbols.
The feature itself starts with 3 respins. Any Money symbols that land during a respin remain on-screen until the round ends. The respin counter resets to 3 when a Money symbol lands on the reels. The bonus round ends when (a) all 3 respins are used up or (b) all positions are filled with Money symbols.
The special symbols that can land in the top horizontal reel comprise:
- Right leaning padlock = unlocks reel 1.
- Left leaning padlock = unlocks reel 6.
- Up and down arrows = extends the possible number of symbols on the reel below to 7 for as long as the round lasts.
- Circular down arrow = collects Money symbol amounts from the reel below it and adds them to the total win.
- Square down arrow = collects all Money symbol amounts currently on-screen and adds it to the total win.
- Circular X = all Money symbol amounts on the reel below are multiplied by either 2x, 3x, 5x or 10x.
- Square X = all Money symbol amounts currently on-screen are multiplied by either 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x.
The values of all the symbols on-screen (Money or otherwise) are collected and then awarded to the player.
The incorporation of the Megaways engine means that each reel can reveal a certain number of symbols in view. Landing consecutive symbols on all reels after a spin could lead to a maximum of 200,704 ways to win.
Chilli Heat Megaways Slot Summary
Chilli Heat Megaways is a spicy slot treat for fans of the Mexican fiesta theme and players who like bright, vibrant slots with unique and exciting bonus features. Pragmatic may not have included a Free Spins bonus round. However, the studio makes up for it with a deep, multi-layered respin feature involving Money and special symbols plus the increased payouts and ways to win that only the Megaways game engine can provide.
