Extra Chilli Review
Extra Chilli is an absolutely fantastic Megaways slot that’s a direct sequel to Bonanza Megaways (which might seem a little odd considering the theme).
All of the best features that made its predecessor so great have been retained, whilst a handful of new additions ensure that this hot game is one of the most enjoyable sequels out there.
Extra Chilli is an absolutely gorgeous, vibrant online slot that is awash with colour. The game is set in a beautiful Mexican market that’s filled to the brim with fruit, vegetables, musical instruments and bright bunting.
Why exactly the series has gone from being about mining to chilli peppers is beyond us, but from what we understand the Miner in Bonanza Megaways wanted to make a new life for himself, and selling chillies from a quaint cart in Mexico just worked!
The symbols in Extra Chilli are chillies (surprise surprise)! The high paying symbols are purple, red, blue and green chillies whilst the low paying symbols are A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9.
Inbetween spins players can hear the lively chatter of the marketplace as birds tweet and church bells ring. During spins the game plays lively Mariachi music, as you would expect!
In terms of gameplay, there’s actually very little that differentiates Extra Chilli from Bonanza.
There are 6 reels with an additional reel at the bottom of the screen that adds extra symbols to reels two, three, four and five. Each spin sees a random number of symbols (a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 7) land on the reels.
Whenever a win is registered the symbols are removed and new ones fall into place creating what is known as a reaction. All wins are registered from left to right.
As with all Megaways titles, the number of paylines varies dramatically on each and every spin and can reach a maximum of 117,649.
Despite having a higher max win (20,000x your initial stake) and slightly better RTP of 96.82% the win potential in Extra Chilli isn’t quite as impressive as Bonanza. This is because most of your winnings come from the bonus free spin round, and Extra Chilli just doesn’t hand out as many as its predecessor unless you get very lucky with the gamble wheel.
Extra Chilli Megaways is a great slot filled with exciting and innovative features, however, when compared to its predecessor Bonanza Megaways, there really isn’t too much to set them apart. All in all, It’s an enjoyable game, but if you’re expecting a huge improvement on Bonanza then we’re afraid you’re going to go away disappointed.
