Regular game:

There are some innovative and exciting new type of bonus rounds, but Extra Chilli from Big Time Gaming is fun to play in the base game as well. It is a successor to Bonanza, game that started the Megaways craze. Let’s say there are six reels in play, but there is no typical symmetrical reel grid. Symbols come in different sizes. On top of that, there is a horizontal reel on the bottom adding to middle reels. This results in a huge number of possible combinations, depending on the symbol size. Game shows a number of possible combinations, Megaways, at the top of the play screen. The maximum number of combinations is 117,649 which is not bad at all. 

Features:

Once there is a combination, those winning symbols disappear and the remaining drop-down, with new ones filling up the empty spaces. That is not a new feature. But, it is fast-paced and fun!

To start the bonus round, you need to collect 3 “HOT” symbols anywhere on the screen, or you can just buy it for 50 times the bet. Anz additional letter increases the number of free spins by 4. There is also a bonus feature savings option, every time “BTG” symbol lands on the screen, it reduces the price should you decide to buy the bonus. Cool!

Bonus:

Before the bonus round starts, you have a chance to spin the reel and either gamble it away or get increased number of spins. As per default, you will start with 8 spins. You should try your luck and risk it as a higher number of spins means many more possibilities for a great win. 

This because during the bonus multiplier rises for each combination made so each following combination will pay even more. This is just a great system! Imagine to hit big toward the end of the bonus when the multiplier is already around 20x. 

Verdict:

Extra Chilli is fast paced and fun to play. Unlike other games where a bonus is the best part, the regular game of Extra Chilli is also great to play. Coupled with an exciting bonus, this is overall well balanced and very enjoyable game. 

You can check how the number of free spins can further increase with re-triggers in the bonus round in this video. Great win there!  I can recommend this game to anyone, it is a guaranteed fun.
