ChilliPop is a slot game oozing with Mexican culture. Fun graphics, a unique five-reel setup with cluster combinations, and a bubbling theme, complete with mariachi background music, all add to a spicy slot playing experience from Betsoft.
Overview of ChilliPop
There are few traditional slot elements in ChilliPop. The game entices players to bet and bet again through the potential winning combinations across the reels and there is potential to win big on a single spin by matching at least three symbols horizontally or vertically.
Explosive wilds, pack mules, and high multiplying vegetables including peppers, spring onions, and a crazy-eyed chilli pepper add to the excitement of this Mexican explosion.
How to Play ChilliPop
To place a bet on ChilliPop, players use the increase and decrease toggles at the bottom of the screen to set their wager. The lowest amount is 0.01 coins while the highest is 1.00. Auto-play options are available where players can set their preferred coin amount and number of spins on a recurring basis.
Once the coin amount and number of spins has been chosen, players can spin. Rather than revolving reels, in ChilliPop, the symbols fall off the screen and are replaced by new symbols from the top of the screen. Any winning clusters will explode on screen and the winning amount will be added to the player’s balance immediately.
In-game preferences can be set by players by using the settings control where sound effects, music, and turbo play can be turned on and off if a player wishes to speed up their playing experience.
Bonus Features for ChilliPop
The mule symbol will provide players with free bets. When three mules appear anywhere on the reels, three free spins are awarded – but as many as 26 free spins can be provided if 15 mules cover the screen. A Trail Tracking feature also keeps the score of how many mules a player gains throughout the game, which expands the playing screen from 5×3 to 8×8 – increasing the chances of matching winning clusters.
The ready to pop pinata acts as the wild in ChilliPop and replaces any of the ingredient symbols, except for the spin wielding mule. Pinatas can be stacked and they reward players by multiplying any original winnings a player has by the number of pinatas a player has.
Players have the opportunity to skip the spinning process and can use the Buy Feature, which bypasses the symbols and gives players 10 free spins to use immediately. The cost of the Buy Feature is displayed above the button in the bottom right corner of the screen and can vary throughout the game.
A Double Up control also comes into play once a player has received winnings from the game. This provides the option to gamble 50% or double the amount of an existing pot on the flip of a coin.
Compatibility of ChilliPop
ChilliPop is available to play on both mobile and desktop devices. Betsoft estimates that the game runs faster on mobile – 18 seconds at 3G speeds – rather than on desktop – 26 seconds on 5 mbps speeds.
A big difference between ChilliPop and other slot games is the absence of steady winnings. While players may slowly build their pot on other slot games, ChilliPop offers a more concentrated payout, whereby winnings are paid out through big multipliers and cluster wins as opposed to matching symbols across multiple paylines.
