Chilli Heat Megaways Slot Review

This is a Megaways™ slot in which the first and the sixth reels can have up to seven symbols vertically, the others can be eight, and the horizontal reel on top varies between 2 and 5 and spins independently. Together they are creating 200,704 ways to win. This Pragmatic Play slot is a tumbling symbol game. These symbols disappear after a win, and new ones fall from above to fill their space. This process is continued as long as you win.

The game logo is Wild. The icon only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. The symbol substitutes for all others except the Money Symbol, which is the Golden Money Bag money symbol that takes on a random value at each spin. It may appear on all reels except the top one. The other symbols are also associated with Mexico, such as the mariachi, his dog: the chihuahua, chili sauce, and the Margarita cocktail.


Land at least 6 Money icons to the reels to trigger the hold-and-win style respins. It starts with 3 spins, with reels 1 and 6 initially locked and all symbols removed except the triggering money symbols. If new Money Bag symbols appear on the primary grid, it is held in position and resets the respins counter. Then, on the horizontal reel, special symbols randomly land, producing the following money-boosting effects:

  • Left-leaning padlock: unlocks reel 1.
  • Right-leaning padlock: unlocks reel 6.
  • Up and down arrows: extends the number of possible symbols reel below it to 7 symbols.
  • Round down arrow: collects the value from all money symbols on the reel below it and adds it to the total win.
  • Square down arrow: collects the value from all money symbols currently on the grid and adds it to the total win.
  • Round X applies a random multiplier of x2, x3, x5, or x10 to the money symbols below the reel.
  • Square X: applies a random multiplier of x2, x3, x5, or x10 to all money symbols currently on the grid.

Buy Respin Feature

If you are not a UK resident, you can buy to activate the Respin feature instantly in the base game for 100x your current bet. The reels will spin with a random number of symbols on each reel.

The game disables the buy option when the Bet Multiplier 25x is active.

Ante Bet Option

You can choose the bet multiplier you want to play with. Depending on your choice, the game behaves differently. The Bet Multiplier 20x is the default mode that is regular play. The Bet Multiplier 25x doubles the likelihood of triggering the round by adding more bonus symbols to the grid. However, the Buy Free Spins Option is disabled in this mode.
