Extra Chilli is the sequel of BTG’s most popular slot Bonanza. Naturally, it is a video slot machine that features the MegaWays™ mechanics, which is played on 6 reels and gives you up to 117,649 ways to win.
While Bonanza featured a mining theme, Extra Chilli takes you to a food fair, where instead of precious stones, you get to spice things up with different types of chilli peppers.
Read our review to see why Extra Chilli is more than a decent sequel to the epic Bonanza, with special features even more intense than in the original slot.
Stop at the Chilli Stand
The game takes you to a Mexican food fair. You will see that the reels represent a chilli stand, where on both sides of the game area you can see peppers and garlic hanging, and at the bottom, you will see two jars of chilli sauce. In the background, you will see many other different food stands, all presented with vivid colours, and you will hear a typical mariachi sound, fittingly implemented in the slot’s theme.
On the reels, you will see that card symbols are used for the lowest-paying symbols, just like in Bonanza, but instead of precious stones for the highest paying symbols, here you get purple, red, blue and green chilli peppers. Similarly, the Scatter is presented with letters, and you’ll need to land the H, O, T letters in order to trigger the bonus game. During the bonus game, the Scatter turns into a pot of chillies. Instead of the Dynamite used in Bonanza as the Wild, in Extra Chilli, the Wild is presented with three Fireworks.
Let’s Make an Enchilada Sauce
You will instantly notice the Extra Reel, at the bottom of the main game area. This reel adds one symbol to the reel it is below, basically to reels 2 through 5. Similarly to the gameplay in Bonanza, you trigger Reactions where by forming winning combos, the winning symbols are removed and replaced by other symbols that come from above or from the right in the extra reel.
The Fireworks Wild replaces for all symbols except for the Scatter in both the base and the bonus game. As soon as the 3 Scatters H, O, and T land on the reels, you trigger 8 Free Spins, where each additional Scatter gives you additional Free Spins.
The Free Spins come with an increasing Multiplier that starts at 1x but increases with each Reaction you make. The earlier mentioned Scatter presented with the pot of chillies appears only on the Extra Reel. Having 3 present, you get 4 additional Free Spins, having 4 present, you get 8 additional Free Spins.
As in most fairs, the fair in Extra Chilli in addition to feeding you wants also to entertain you. So, after you trigger the Free Spins, you'll see a Free Spins Gamble Wheel appearing in the middle of the game area. You can either take the gamble or collect the Free Spins you have been awarded depending on the number of Scatters you landed.
If you take the gamble, you will get to spin the Wheel. A successful spin can give you 4 additional Free Spins and another chance to spin the Wheel again, where you can win 24 Free Spins top. An unsuccessful, however, which lands on the black field, can have zero Free Spins for you and end the feature for you.
The greatest difference between Bonanza and its sequel is that Extra Chilli also gives you the opportunity to buy your way into the Feature Drop, which costs 50x the bet. So if you’re impatient and want to spice things up faster, this is your chance.
Your betting starts at 0.20 credits in Extra Chilli but goes up to 40 credits. The RTP the game has increases from 96.15% to 96.82%, depending on the bets placed and the number of ways to win active. The number of ways to win can grow up to 117,649.
The most valuable Purple Chilli can give you 50x the stake for 6 symbols in the winning combo. Other symbols give lower payouts, but the game promises a potential of 50,000x the stake.
For the max bet, this means that this big win video game can deliver 2,000,000 credits if everything goes well. Talk about an extremely rewarding payout! So, wait no more and find a casino that features BTG slots to play Extra Chilli for real money bets. You cannot miss the chance to win some extraordinary prizes!
