Extra Chilli Megaways is the perfect slot for all players seeking high RTP, lots of action and cool features. The slot is the second Megaways slot from Big Time Gaming and although it’s somewhat of a sequel of the mega hit Bonanza, it has no problems standing on its own two feet.
As is to be expected from a Megaways slot, Extra Chilli offers countless paylines, big winnings, an endless multiplier and the opportunity to buy free spins if you just don’t want to wait for the scatter symbol to show up. With up to 117,649 paylines, an RTP of nearly 97% and cascading reels, Big Time Gaming’s Extra Chilli lives up to its name.
This is a slot that really gets the blood pumping and it almost gets to the point where you can feel the heat spreading throughout your body as you spin the wheels.
Just like on the first ever Megaways slot, Bonanza, Extra Chilli features cascading reels with symbol drops which replaces winning symbols with new ones, so the feature can result in a long line of repetitive wins. The total amount of active paylines changes for every spin depending on the size of the symbols.
Landing a lot of big symbols can see you playing with as little as 1,024 paylines, whereas 6 reels of small symbols can increase the amount of lines to a whopping 117,649!
The scatter symbol on Extra Chilli is three symbols in gold that collectively spell “HOT”. If you land all three on a spin, you win 8 free spins with a multiplier that starts at one, but increases every time you land a win. Thanks to cascading reels, this feature can in theory keep you going indefinitely and the multiplier increases for each win until you run out of free spins.
Extra Chilli is the perfect slot on days when you’re feeling a bit down. Not only does it offer up plenty of Free Spins, but it lets you buy as many as you like. Just click on the “Buy” button whenever you want.
Now, buying free spins doesn’t come cheap, but the price will be reduced with the more coin symbols you land. These symbols don’t give any money prizes on their own, but they can reduce the price of free spins significantly.
Much of the reason why thousands of us play online slots every day is to add a little extra spice in our everyday life. Sometimes you just have to take a break and get some excitement in your life and Extra Chilli is absolutely perfect to do just that. Set against a backdrop of a Mexican market, it’s easy to let your mind wander off to Mexico and festivals like Día de los Muertos.
That said, the design and graphics are a bit disappointing. Extra Chilli is a very busy slot and unfortunately, the background is too big and steals a lot of attention from the reels. It all looks great and colorful, but there is not enough separation between reels, background and the menu. It all sort of blurs into one.
We Love Megaways slots and we will forever be grateful to Big Time Gaming for coming up with the concept, but we have to say that even though Extra Chilli is a great slot, it’s nowhere near the likes of Bonanza.
