Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Game
Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Introduction
Aussie developer Big Time Gaming (BTG for short) unleashed their proprietary Megaways mechanic on an unsuspecting gaming world in 2016. The game that did it was Dragon Born. This was followed by their sophomore effort Bonanza Megaways in the same year. After that, there was no going back. The engine was so popular and revolutionary that BTG was soon licensing it out to other developers. Meanwhile, the team got to work on expanding their catalogue of Megaways-powered online casino slots, including the game we’re talking about today, Extra Chilli Megaways.

Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Game Background
Released in April 2018, Extra Chilli Megaways is the direct sequel to Bonanza Megaways, and the thrills and excitement are spicier than ever! The slot ups the ante with its bonuses, features and potentially big payouts. Normally, developers take a pre-existing slot game and revamp it using the Megaways engine. That didn’t happen with Extra Chilli Megaways, as there was no original Extra Chilli slot to overhaul with their proprietary game engine. As a standalone Megaways slot, Extra Chilli Megaways features 117,649 paylines alongside exciting features and design mechanics, just like its direct predecessor.
Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Game Design
Extra Chilli Megaways is a 6-reel online slot game with anywhere between 2 - 7 rows, depending on the on-screen action and the size of the symbols in view. As is also usual in Megaways slot, the game has an extra horizontal reel that sits below the main game grid rather than above it. In terms of paylines, the slot offers the standard 117,649 ways to win, alongside a potential maximum payout of 20,00x the stake.
The whole game takes place in a beautiful Mexican food market setting, and the amount of care and attention paid to it is simply staggering. The background - a riot of colour - is rich in detail and comprises a church with a bell tower, food stalls filled with luscious and delicious produce, treetops, a villa, bunting, clear blue skies, and more: a visual feast for the eyes. So it will come as no surprise to learn that the slot's primary colour scheme is warm and earthy. The game grid is set against the front of one of the food stalls. Hanging from the ceiling on either side are strands of garlic and red chilli peppers. Completing the atmosphere are ambient sounds that perfectly capture the hustle and bustle of a busy Mexican marketplace and an upbeat mariachi soundtrack when spinning the reels. The only thing that prevents the marketplace setting from truly coming to life is the lack of any real animations apart from the occasional flutter of the bunting. That aside, this is a very beautiful-looking slot.
Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Mobile
Extra Chilli Megaways can be played at home on a desktop PC or the go via all mobile platforms, including tablet, Android and Apple. You can also download the Lottomart app for even greater portability via a stable internet connection or mobile data.
Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Symbols
The game has a total of 13 symbols; we’ll start from the bottom and work our way up.
- 9 - A royal playing card symbols = these have a payout of between 0.8x - 1.75x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Green and blue chilli symbols = these have a payout of 2x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Red chilli symbol = this has a payout of 7.5x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Purple chilli symbol = this has a payout of 50x the stake for 6-of-a-kind on the reels. Not bad for a Megaways game, where the payouts tend to be on the smaller size to compensate for the added ways-to-win.
- Wild symbol = represented by a trio of fireworks tied together by a band with the world WILD on it. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols apart from the Scatter.
- Scatter symbol = represented by a gold letter that can be either H, O or T. Landing the 3 gold letters together awards 8 Free Spins. Every extra Scatter symbol in view awards an additional 4 Free Spins.
- Free Spin Scatter symbol = represented by a large pot full of hot, flaming red peppers. This symbol can appear in the extra horizontal reel during the Free Spins bonus round. Landing 3 symbols awards 4 extra spins, and landing 4 awards 8 extra spins.
Extra Chilli Megaways Slot Bonus Features
Extra Chilli Megaways offers a few spicy bonuses and features sure to get the excitement going to mouth-watering levels!
If you’ve played other Megaways slots, you’ll be familiar with the Avalanche or Cascading Reels feature. Here it’s called the Reactions feature, but the idea is the same. All symbols (apart from the Scatter) in winning combinations disappear from the reels, creating space for other symbols to fall into the recently vacated positions. These new symbols are the same size as the ones they replaced. Reactions continue until no more winning combinations appear as a result.
Free Spins Feature
The next feature of note in this UK casino game is the Free Spins bonus round, which is triggered by landing at least 3 Scatter symbols on the reels; this awards an initial 8 Free Spins. Every extra Scatter symbol that lands awards a further 4 Free Spins. The Free Spins Scatter (the pot of red chilli peppers) can also award Free Spins depending on how many land during the feature.
Free Spins Gamble Feature
A Free Spins Gamble feature - giving players the chance to win up to 24 Free Spins - is triggered during the bonus round, and they can choose to COLLECT or GAMBLE. With the former players start the bonus round with the original number of awarded Free Spins. With the latter, they spin a fortune wheel; every successful gamble awards 4 additional Free Spins, plus players get the opportunity to gamble for further spins. An unsuccessful gamble awards the number of Free Spins displayed in the black segment of the wheel. If that number is zero, the feature ends.
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 the maximum 117,649 ways to win!
