Some call them daredevils, others call them idiots, but we all know someone that won’t think twice about chowing down on a Carolina Reaper or Ghost Pepper. Don’t get us wrong, we love spicy food, but that’s just suicidal.
Hot sauces are a different animal and we are about to pop a few bottles and dig into the sizzling action of Red Tiger’s latest release – Hot Hot Chilli Pot slot. It’s like rubbing bottles to release the genie, except this particular genie can not only burn a hole in your intestines, it can also get you some solid payouts.
Grab an apron, hold onto your wigs and let’s see what this beast is made out of!
If You Can’t Stand the Heat
First impression actually makes us a bit hungry because you’re looking at a big pot of boiling chili, with more tasty ingredients waiting to be added. You can hear the sizzling sound and almost smell the yumminess that’s on the stove. The graphics are really great and with a big 7×7 grid, we expect good things.
It’s all about creating clusters of at least 5 symbols. Beans, avocados, chips, onions, carrots, cucumbers and meat are ready to be added to the pot with the yellow chili as the highest valued symbol. It has the warm welcoming vibe of your granny’s kitchen.
The game has medium to high volatility, a 95.76% RTP and a pretty good €50 bet limit. Unfortunately, the highest multiplier is only 1,000x, resulting in a low €50,000 max win.
The game uses the cascading reels mechanic, which is pretty common these days. All symbols that are part of a winning combo will be replaced and give you a re-spin. If this leads to another win you’ll get another re-spin until you get a winless one. It might be a cheesy feature but we like it.
Add the Whole Bottle
If you know how to cook, you also know to be careful with hot sauce. When a chilli wild is part of a winning combo, an entire bottle will fall into the pot and set it on fire. Known as the Armageddon feature, it will trigger a rainfall of hot sauce bottles.
Seeing as there are different colored chillies, they have their own specialty.
- Green Chilli – This guy will give you a win multiplier as high as 10x your stake.
- Red Chilli – All lower value symbols will be removed, giving you a chance at even bigger wins.
- Yellow Chilli – Prepare for a bunch of fire wilds to be added to your reels.
What’s the Verdict?
As great as the Hot Hot Chilli Pot slot looks and sounds, we are not completely sold on its greatness. Yes, it can be fun when the wilds and multipliers kick in but considering there are no free spins or other big money-makers, the game is simply missing some spice.
Unfortunately, you can’t taste the actual dish and the game does leave you hungry for more in more ways than one. Is it worth a few spins? For sure! Is it a new favorite? We’re not convinced.
