Chilli Picante Megaways Slot (Blueprint)

Chilli Picante Megaways Slot (Blueprint)Blueprint Gaming has been making great moves in the Megaways group after they got a license from the original owner, Big Time Gaming.

They have added to their list of games in this category, and the newest slot from them is Chilli Picante, a slot that comes with exciting features.

Chilli Picante Megaways is one highly volatile title, and for the theme, Blueprint borrowed from the spicy chilli inspiration, a common thing in the Mexican culture.

Game Set-Up

Chilli Picante Megaways offers 6 reels, with a random number of ways to win. Therefore, depending on the spin, you can get up to 117,649 Megaways on this medium to high volatility title.

When it comes to the features, the developer has given this slot a lot, and among those that I got to work with are Ghost Chilli scatters, free spins with multipliers, and bonus symbols.

Betting and Prizes

Blueprint did not go overboard with the real money bet options. To play for real money, I needed at least $0.10 for each spin that I made. With a higher budget, you can play for $10 per spin.

Up to 25,000xs the stake is available on Chilli Picante Megaways, which translates to $250,000 when using the highest bet amount. However, I’m not very amused by the 95% RTP.

Chilli Picante Megaways Slot Features

One of the most powerful features of this slot is the Ghost Chilli which serves as the scatters. They have the potential to deliver some very good rewards, and even help in triggering the jackpot.

Another version of the scatter will trigger the slot’s free spins feature. With at least 6 Golden Chilli symbols, you can trigger up to 25 free spins.

I noticed that while in the free spins mode, some Mariachi symbols tend to land. Each of these will collect the mentioned prizes that are currently visible Chilli icons (red and ghost versions can both be collected).

Each Chilli brings along a reward that could go up to 50x the stake. You will be luckier if several wilds appear since the prizes will be collected multiple times.

By collecting up to 4 Mariachi symbols, the slot will reward you with more free spins, in addition to a multiplier which will highly boost some of the prizes.

The first four Mariachi reward you with 10 more spins plus a 2x multiplier, the second set of four will deliver another 10 spins plus a 3x multiplier, while the third one will deliver 10 free spins, and a 5x multiplier.


Theme & Design

The storyline is not all that unique, and I have on several accounts come across slots with the Mexican theme. In the game’s background are a Mexican desert plus a tiny village.

The reels are made out of wood, and they host several symbols that include Royals (10-A), along with others that have images of Tequila bottles, music instruments, pinatas, and the Mariachi. There are a couple of chilli peppers as well (in red and ghost-like blue). The bonus symbol is what completes the line-up.


While Chilli Picante Megaways is not among the best-looking slots out there, I’m impressed by the range of features inside.

The top rewards are very motivating for plenty of players, especially when you consider the less risk associated with playing the game.

I enjoyed this new slot by Blueprint and can recommend it to all levels of players.
