One of my favourite new online pokies I can recommend checking out when you next play at Casino.com or 888 Casino is the new Chilli Picante Megaways online pokie from Blueprint Gaming. If you hadn’t already guessed by the title, it has a Mexican Food/Spicy Chillies theme, and it comes with 6 reels and up to 117,649 Megaways.
The game was released simultaneously on desktop and mobile in April 2022, and it takes just seconds to launch in most web browsers, no download required. The top coin prize up for grabs on any lucky spin is worth up to a mouth-watering 50,000x times your total stake, and you can enjoy playing either in the real money mode or free play demo mode from as little as NZ$0.10 per spin up to a maximum of NZ$10.00 per spin.
The game’s main bonus feature is a Free Spins Bonus, which instantly kicks into action each time 3 or more Golden Chilli Bonus Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin, plus there’s also a Chilli Hot Cashpot feature that awards an instant cash prize each time 3 or more Blue Chilli Symbols land anywhere in view on the same spin. Let’s start by taking a quick look at the Chilli Hot Cashpot feature.
If you look next to the leftmost reel, you will notice there is a table of cash prizes that are otherwise known as Cashpots. To win one of these prizes, all you need to do is land 3 or more Blue Chillies anywhere in view. For example, if you were to land a minimum of 3 Blue Chillies, you would instantly be awarded the smallest Cashpot, which is worth just 1x times your total stake.
Landing 4 Blue Chillies would get you 5X times your stake, and landing 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 Blue Chillies at the same time would get you an instant Cashpot worth 10X, 40X, 100X, 250X, or 1,000X times your stake. To trigger a minimum guaranteed bonus of 10 Free Spins, you would need to land just 3 Bonus Symbols on the reels at the same time, whereas landing 4, 5, or 6 of them would get you 15, 20, or 25 Free Spins.
During the feature, the special Wild Senor/Mariachi Symbol is added to the reels, and then each time he shows up during the feature, he will automatically collect all cash prizes that are in view (attached to the Red and Blue Chillies) and add them to your Free Spins winnings. You can also unlock even more Free Spins and a bigger Win Multiplier for every fourth special Wild Symbol collected throughout the feature.
For example, after you’ve collected your first 4 Senor/Mariachi Wild Symbols, you will receive another 10 Free Spins and a 2X Win Multiplier. Collect another 4 to unlock a further 10 Free Spins + 3X Win Multiplier, and collect another 4 to unlock the final 10 Free Spins with a 5X Win Multiplier.
