Mexico is our destination for this colourful and amusing online slot from Lightning Box; Chilli Gold brings together the human desire for gold with the less popular need for spicy hot chillies and we end up with a high quality game with some cartoon-style graphics, some funny characters and a funky bonus feature.
Chilli Gold is one of only a handful of games we’ve played from Lightning Box but they’ve all been of a high quality; this one features five reels and forty fixed paylines and there’s some stereotypical stuff hiding away behind the reels. We can see a gentleman with a Mexican hat and poncho grasping a chilli, cacti, a donkey and rock stacks in front of a blue sky.
The lower value playing card symbols are decorated in a historically appropriate manner but the higher value icons are a pair of maracas, a parrot, a guitar, the Mexican chap and the donkey. The big shiny chilli is the stacked wild and the bonus scatter symbol but there’s also a gold chill scatter which only appears in the bonus feature.
Chilli Gold Free Spins
The interesting thing about this feature is that it’s triggered by the stacked wild chilli symbols and that means you can land far more than five on the reels at any one time. To trigger the spins you’ll need to land between six and twelve in view and for that you’ll receive three to twenty one free spins.
They’ll start automatically and for the duration of this feature gold chillies are added to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and will act as more wild symbols – also stacked.
Chilli Gold Online Playing Tips
The paylines are fixed and there’s very little we can offer here but we would suggest keeping the sound turned on for the idiosyncratic sound effects.
We like this slot, mostly because the cartoonish graphics offer something a little different from the usual fare. The animations are bright and engaging and the sound effects are entertaining.
