Chillipop slot is a Mexican-themed game launched by Betsoft in November 2018. It uses the Cluster Pays mechanics and more than one way to scoop up some hefty prizes. Benefit from Wild Substitutions and a Free Spins round where up to 26 free spins are up for grabs. Colourful graphics, neat animations and a Mariachi soundtrack will lift your spirits while a solid RTP of 95.38% will provide balanced gameplay.
Chillipop is played on a 5x3 reel set with bets between $0.50 and $50 per spin. Since there are no traditional paylines, you receive payouts when at least 3 matching symbols appear on adjacent reels anywhere on the grid. Winning icons burst and new ones fall down to replace them and potentially award additional prizes. Before pressing Spin to start the game, choose a coin size ranging from $0.01 to $1.00. To keep the reels spinning automatically, initiate Autoplay.
Jolly-looking vegetables of all sorts occupy the reels and pay per symbol in a cluster. Red and yellow chillies represent two top-paying symbols awarding 12x the bet per icon. Onion, an orange and a red bell pepper deliver 7x, 6x and 5x the bet respectively for each symbol in a win combo. A green bell pepper, tomato and scallions depict low-value icons providing prizes of 2x the bet each. A Pinata represents Wild, replacing all other icons except for Scatter. Every win with Wild in it is multiplied by the number of Pinatas +1. Filling the entire grid with Wilds awards a bonus of 2,500 coins. During Free Spins, up to 64 Pinatas can land to award a massive win of 50,000 coins.
To trigger the Free Spins round, 3 or more Mule symbols representing Scatter should land. Depending on the number of triggering Scatters, you can receive between 5 and 26 free spins. Additional Scatters landing during the feature are collected and will cause the grid to expand up to an 8x8 layout, significantly increasing your chances of mega prizes. To spice things up even more, a Double up game is available, so you can gamble half or all your winnings at any time. Furthermore, if you are impatient to activate free spins, you can buy 10 free spins for 2,450 coins.
The design and playing mechanisms in Chillipop deliver a fun and rewarding gaming experience with the base game offering lucrative payouts. However, the Free Spins feature holds the greatest winning potential.
