Mexican themed online slots are perhaps as popular as Mexican food, and we all know how popular Mexican food is. Just as there is no city in the world without a Mexican restaurant, there isn’t an online casino that doesn’t feature at least one Mexican themed game. And Chilli Gold slot is one of the top Mexican themed slots available at Secret Slots. If you are a fan of Mexican culture you will definitely enjoy playing a game like Chilli Gold slot.
The game is both colourful and playful, yet quite simple. Although there are lot of colours and different types of symbols appearing on the reels, the overall design of the game as a whole, and especially the control panel is rather minimalist.
Chilli Gold Overview
You will notice a smiling donkey looking over the reels, standing on the left and a Mexican gentleman with a tiny moustache standing on the right, and the two cacti on both sides of the reels are there to remind you that the action takes places in the Mexican desert, where cacti are some of the very few plants that can grow successfully.
The creators of Chilli Gold slots decided to stick to the ‘less is more’ maxim when it comes to sounds. You will only hear a short clicking sound after each reel stops spinning and a somewhat larger sound sequence after every successful spin. However, while the reels are not spinning, the music is a lot more lively and vivid, you’ll almost feel like you are at a concert of a great mariachi band.
When it comes to visual effects, the symbols are drawn nicely, in a colourful way and the animations are simple, yet catchy and aesthetically appealing. All in all, this game looks like a completed product and its overall appeal is great.
How To Play Chilli Gold Slot
Once the game loads you will notice that there is nothing but the reels and two buttons on each side of the reels. On the right you will notice the spin, or the play button and you probably already know what that button is for, even if you have never played this game before, or any online slot for that matter.
The button located on the left of the reels is the options button, and once you click on it the control panel will be prompted. Here you can choose whether you wish to active the sound effects, or you’d rather play the game in silence, but there are plenty of other options as well.
This game has forty paylines and you have to play with all of them, i.e. you don’t have the liberty to set the number of active paylines yourself. The minimum wager is a penny per payline, which makes an overall minimum of 40p.
You will need to activate the settings window in order to alter your stake and starting from the minimum of 40p, you can wager up to as much as £200. You can get up to £200 if you set the wager per coin at £1 and place a maximum of five coins per line. There is also an auto spin option and this option can also be activated from the game settings panel. The maximum number of auto spins is 100.
How To Win Chilli Gold
You will need a minimum of three symbols across a payline to activate a winning combination and the payout depends on the number of credits that you wager per line. So, let’s for now assume that you’re playing with one credit per line, and just know that two credits per line would generate a prize double than the prize generated by one credit.
The standard card symbols are the symbols of low value in Chilli Gold slots. Unlike most slots that feature card symbols up to the Ace, in Chilli Gold slots you will find card symbols from 9 up to the King. You will receive five coins for a combination of three of the same card symbols, whereas four card symbols yield 20 coins. Finally, with five symbols you will get a 100-coin prize.
The more valuable symbols in this game include a guitar, traditional Mexican percussion, a parrot, a donkey and a Mexican holding a chilli pepper. The Mexican also plays the role of a wild symbol and it is the only symbol which generates a payout with just two instances across a payline. All combinations have to be arranged from the leftmost towards the rightmost reel, otherwise a payout won’t be activated. The Mexican who also acts as a wild is the most valuable symbol and a combination of five symbols across a payline pays 1,000 coins.
Chilli Gold Slot Bonus Features
In addition to the Mexican who plays the role of a wild, there are also two additional wild symbols, a golden chilli pepper and a red chilli. The gold chilli acts only as a wild that appears during free spins and it can be a substitute for all other symbols except for the red chilli.
The red chilli is both a wild and a scatter symbol and it can appear only on the second, the third and the fourth reel. The free games, or the free spins bonus in Chilli Gold slots can be activated by the red chilli scatter and you can get up to a maximum of 21 free spins, whereas the minimum possible amount of games that can be awarded is three. A minimum of six scatters can appear on the reels, whereas the maximum is a dozen. The number of scatters determines the number of awarded free spins.
The free spins bonus can be reactivated, and it is possible for stacked gold wild chilli symbols to appear on the second, the third, the fourth and the fifth reels to appear.
