Extra Chilli slot is Bonanza's fiery little bro
Extra Chilli uses the Megaways™ reel format which means you could play a mouth-watering 117,649 paylines. You’ll recognise many other features used in Bonanza too, but with the addition of new stuff like a Feature Drop and a Free Spins Gamble wheel, Big Time Gaming have cooked up something just different enough to tickle your tastebuds.
In this Extra Chilli slot review we’ll be looking at the graphics, features and stats that make this video slot hotter than a scotch bonnet on a summer’s day in Tobago! *swipe brow*
Let us begin….
Extra Chilli slot graphics and gameplay
The Extra Chilli game is set in a Mexican village market and although it’s a bit light on locals, it’s got a festival feel thanks to the bright colours and bunting. The reels themselves are part of a fruit & veg stall, framed by dried garlic and chillies which are inevitably the star of the show.
Reel symbols follow the tried & tested Bonanza route. Ace to 9 card ranks are used for the lower value symbols, while green, blue, red and purple chillies make up the higher value symbols. We’ve got the same bricks of gold for the Scatter symbols, this time with a little Mexican border (no wall) and each come with letter H, O or T, or +5. You’ll find out why later on.
Sticking with the party vibe, we’ve got a bundle of fireworks with burning fuses as the Wild symbol. During Extra Chilli slot Free Spins, gold pots full of chillies represent special Scatters which trigger more Free Spins.
As usual with Big Time Gaming slots, there are little details which jazz up what could be a pretty ordinary slot theme. Bunting swings gently in the breeze. Reel backgrounds are made of wood with zigzag patterned borders. The stall is decorated with stencils and more patterned borders. Not Cinco De Mayo but hey, OJO needs little encouragement to fiesta!
Above the reels sits the Megaways counter which shows you the frankly bananas number of paylines active on the current spin. Gameplay buttons are big and clear with the big green Play, info, autoplay, stake and Feature Drop™ buttons making our Extra Chilli online slot an eazy peazy play.
The important stuff
Extra Chilli is a 6-reel Megaways video slot machine with an Extra Reel and up to 117,649 Ways to win. You can bet between 20p and £40 per spin and play your way to a max win of 20,000 times your stake. KABOOOM!
Not deposited or balance on the big ZER-OJO? You can fund your account to play Extra Chilli in all sorts of ways including deposit with PayPal. Don’t forget you get up to 50 Free Spins on your first deposit too. No silly stuff like wagering requirements, but there are a few terms just keep things super-fair.
Back to the chillies. Students of RTPs will like this. In normal mode without using the Feature Drop, the Extra Chilli slot RTP is between 96.15% and 96.41%. If you always take the Feature Gamble Wheel option, your RTP rises to between 96.26% and 96.82%. #RTPNerdOut!
Hold up! Like all our UK casino games, OJO gives you money back on every spin, straight into your OJOplus balance. Those real-time reddies - which can be spent immediately, no strings! – are how we ensure the Extra Chilli RTP is effectively higher here than anywhere else.
OJO’s guide to playing his Extra Chilli slot
OK, so a deserted Mexican market isn’t gonna set the design world on fire, but Extra Chilli is one of many Big Time Gaming slots that comes loaded with feisty features, and that’s the piñata OJO likes to smash.
To play our Extra Chilli game for real money, simply fire up the game from the OJO lobby and select your stake by toggling the left and right arrows to a number you’re comfortable with. The bet per spin is the total amount, and you’ll get that bet applied to every winline. Big!
Now you’re ready to play. Hit the big green arrow to start your first spin. You’ll come across a bunch of fresh features almost immediately, so let’s start with the reely obvious Extra Chilli slot machine feature, Megaways!
The brainchild of some Big Time Gaming whizz, Megaways laughs in the face of fixed payline slots. Bites its thumb at them. Raises a withering eyebrow at… OK, we stop. It’s the daddy, is all.
A feature also used by our Bonanza online casino game, Megways randomises the number of rows on each reel between 2 and 7, on every spin. In this way, Megaways slots get you mad variance and a crazy high number of ways to win. Like Bonanza, our Extra Chill online slot goes up to a maximum of 117,649 Ways. Although it may take a while to see a reel configuration that enables that kinda weird number, you should be OJOing things up with thousands of winlines soon after you start your sesh!
Not content with 6 reels and an *OMG* amount of rows, Big Time Gaming opened up their toolbag, plucked out an Extra Reel and superglued it to the bottom of the main reels. BOOYAA! Not only does it add another symbol to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, but it’s also the only place you can see those fizzin’ firework Wilds.
Symbol drops. Cascading reels. Reactions. Call it what you like. Hit a win when you play Extra Chilli online and the symbols vanish and are replaced by the ones above. You might get another win, you might get a few!
Extra Chilli Free Spins is where it’s at, broseph. Not just spins, but a bit of wheel action too (and you know how OJO loves a wheel!). Hit 3 Scatters in a regular spin and you’ll bag yourself 8 Free Spins. Every extra Scatter adds 4 more Free Spins.
Ready to rumble? Hold your horses, Tonto. First you gotta choose to stick or twist with the Extra Chilli Free Spins Gamble feature. You can either collect the number of Free Spins you were awarded in the base game, or spin the wheel where you’ll either scoop 4 more or say adios to the ones you had. May not sounds like a great deal but apparently the Extra Chilli slot rules say spinning the wheel is theoretically the best Extra Chilli slot strategy. But we’re talking razor-thin margins here, so OJO says just do what feels right.
Once you’re into the Free Spins bonus game, the fun starts. For every winning symbol combo, a multiplier cranks up by 1. With all those paylines, it’s not unusual to go from 1x to 3x to 5x in a jiffy, and there’s no limit to how high the multiplier can go. The Extra Reel also helps to keep the party going with 3 or 4 special Free Spin Scatters awarding 4 or 8 more Free Spins. DING-A-LING! Here comes the money train.
You’ve got a date, you’re on the bus and you’ll be there in 8 mins. Enough time to Scatter your way to Free Spin glory? EEEEK! No worries, you can buy your way into the Extra Chilli bonus game with the Feature Drop. That little panel on the right tells you how much it’ll cost ya for 8 Free Spins at any given time. The price is usually about £10 (at 20p per spin) but drop symbols can appear during regular spins that bring down the price. Once the price drops to zero, the game automatically fires up 8 Free Spins game and you’re in the market for an Extra Chilli big win. Who’s payin’ for Nandos now, baby?!
Aside from always being lit but a trained expert, and always watched from a safe distance, Extra Chilli Wild symbols do exactly what they were born to do – be whatever you want them to be! Except Scatters. They will not pretend to be Scatters ever. Remember, they only appear on the Extra Reel, so don’t go getting all sad if you don’t see any on the main reels, chief!
Is Extra Chilli mobile slot too hot to handle?
Yes. No other words needed. We don’t want your phone to melt, so OJO recommends you wear gloves! Play it on landscape. Play it on portrait. It doesn’t matter, coz the Extra Chilli mobile slot is fast, smooth and easy to use. Even OJO’s clumsy fingers can play it! And thus ends our Extra Chilli slot game review. Almost….
ZZZZING! Vegetable-based gaming with wheely good bonus features? That’s my flava! You could call this Megaways slot a twist on a classic recipe rather than a new creation, but whichever way you slice it, Extra Chill is a HHHHHHOT SLOT! Keep plenty of water handy, hombre!

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Megaways! Or WWTBAMW for short. It’s got all the same features as Extra Chilli but this time the Free Spins Gamble game uses the TV show question format instead of a wheel. Want to play? Is that your final answer?
