If you have ever played any slot games by the developer Lightning Box, then there is a chance you may have played the Mexican-themed Chilli Gold. The game enjoyed moderate success and became a popular title for Lightning Box. As a result, the developers have since developed a sequel known as Chilli Gold 2 which attempts to improve on the original. It looks like a lot of fun with some extremely hot features and jackpots. The music will definitely remind you of the country, and there appears to be a good range of additional bonus features to enjoy. If you fancy playing, then read our review for all the facts.
Chilli Gold 2 builds on the features that made the original such a hit and managed to create a sequel that is memorable and enjoyable. The bonus features are fun, and the theme is light-hearted and will put a smile on your face. We love the symbols and the background of the game. There are a healthy 40 paylines to enjoy, and the base game jackpot is 1000X so the game also has the potential to win big. Bets begin from 48p up to £60, and there is even a free play mode to get you started. Check it out even if you haven't played the first one.
There are many different symbols on the reel including guitars, parrots, a smiling donkey and much more. There are also some special bonus symbols that activate the extra features on the game. The main one to watch out for is the wild symbol which is represented by the big red chilli, and overall this replaces most other symbols on the reel and allows the player to accumulate more wins so watch out for it as it contributes to your game significantly. There are no scatters on this instalment, and the wild symbol activates the bonus features as well.
This is the main bonus feature, and there are lots of spins to be won. Most players love a free spins bonus round as it increases the length of the game at no extra cost. You need to land the wild symbol at least 6 times on reel 2, 3 or 4 and you can receive between 3 and 21 free spins depending on how many of the chilli symbols that you land at one time. We really like this feature as it offers a big range of free spin options and it triggers lots so watch out for those chillies!
This is the second bonus feature and is triggered randomly in the base game. There is more chance of it activating if you are placing bigger bets but if it does trigger you are transported to a screen where you must pick symbols to help you climb the ladder that is displayed. The symbols reveal a prize at the end of the round and if you make it all the way to the jackpot stage you can win a number of different prizes or perks. It's great fun overall.
