Mexican culture is heralded as being amongst the brightest and liveliest in the world.

It is this love affair that is brought to the fore in Extra Chilli.

Review of Extra Chilli

Big Time Gaming’s latest video slot, Extra Chilli, is guaranteed to brighten up your life as you spin to win in a gorgeous Mexican marketplace surrounded by all thing fresh and flavourful! Nothing says hot and spicy like a Mexican fiesta!

Theme and Background of Extra Chilli

The day is hot and dry, the air filled with the light joyful banter of friends and neighbours. Everywhere you look your eyes are drawn to strings of fiery chilli, crunchy garlic and the other fresh aromatic foods that Mexico is known for. Welcome to the Extra Chilli online slot. In addition to the gorgeous colours taking a moment to listen to Extra Chilli will reveal the time and attention Big Time Gaming’s gave to servicing the theme. The world is filled with locals chatting and bargaining while the Mariachi’s play for everyone and no one at the same time.

The sense of being outdoors is heightened by the addition of birds chirping and the occasional toll of the local church bell. The setting for Extra Chilli is immediately recognisable and immersive. Designing the reels to look like a market stall was a fantastic way to weave the slots symbols into the overall theme and setting created by the visual and sound designers.

Game Mechanics of Extra Chilli

Besides a great setting, Big Time Gaming created an entertaining online slots experience to compliment the effort and energy of their design team. Extra Chilli is played out on a 6 Reel grid with a twist.

The base game consists of a 6 reel grid, with an added Row containing symbols exclusively for Reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Those of you who have played the Bonanza slot will recognise this as the way in which Carts worked. In Extra Chilli the front display marquee of the market stall holds these special additional symbols. Extra Chilli offers punters an amazing 117,649 ways to win thanks to the addition of these additional symbols and the custom Big Time Gaming Megaways engine.

With so many ways to win and the fact that Extra Chilli is a medium to high volatility slot machine, it is important to actively manage your bet limits. Big Time Gaming has made this possible through an easy to use Stake button. Simply click left or right to drop your Stake as low as €0.20 or raise it as high as €40.00 per spin.

Slot Features on Extra Chilli

With such a rich and colourful theme the selection of slot symbols, while no surprise is extremely limited, focusing almost exclusively on multi-coloured chillies. The highest paying of these surprisingly is not the smoking hot Red Chilli but the Purple Chilli. The standard playing card A, K, Q and J symbols are used to complete the low-value symbol set.
The final symbols available on the reels are the Wilds and Scatters. The Wild is represented by a grouping of lit firework rockets which adds value to the festive nature of Extra Chilli. The Scatter is made up of gold symbols containing the letters H, O and T.

Dual Reactions

Extra Chilli is a cascading reel slot, where winning symbols are exploded to remove them from the reels, and new symbols cascade down to take their place opening up new winning combinations. These are what Big Time Gaming call Reactions. However to make things interesting while the base game symbols cascade down, any symbols removed from the extra Row due to a Reaction will be replaced by the symbols moving from right to left thus creating a Dual Reaction on the reels.


The fireworks Wild will stand-in for any low or high-value symbol needed to complete a winning combination except for a Scatter symbol.

HOT Free Spins

Spelling out the word HOT across the gold Scatter symbols will launch the Free Spins feature. Here you will be awarded 8 Free Spins. Each winning combination on the reels during Free Spins will increase the base win multiplier by an additional 1x. Best of all there is no maximum cap so you are effectively playing with and for an Unlimited Win Multiplier! Eight free spins are not the largest number of spins to play however it is possible to increase your free spins tally. Landing additional Free Spins Scatters on the extra 4 symbol Reel will provide up to 8 extra Free Spins per round. The alternative is to use the Free Spins Gamble mini-game where you bet your 8 free spins in the hope of winning up to 24!

Feature Drop

Big Time Gaming have included Feature Drop in Extra Chilli which allows you to buy the activation of the Free Spins feature. Buyer beware this might seem like a useful tool however the starting price to immediately activate Free Spins will be 50x your current stake! They do randomly drop BTG Coins on the reels which reduce the cost Feature Drop however it only does so at a marginal rate.

A Final Word on Extra Chilli

Extra Chilli is a fantastically designed online slot. The graphics are crisp and colourful, capturing the feel of a Mexican outdoor market. The sound design is superb and immediately immerses you in this otherworldly environment so far removed the hustle and bustle of daily life. While it has some fun features Extra Chilli does not do enough to entertain you during those long stretches between organically acquired Free Spins rounds. Extra Chilli is definitely a slot for mature gamblers, newer gamblers will most likely find it heavy on their budget and with offering too little excitement on the reels.
