Hot Chilli Slot Review

Hot Chilli Slot MachinePragmatic Play is the king of slots and this is evident given the frequency at which they release new games. Hot Chilli is their latest hero that is set up on the unusual 3-reels. Hot Chilli is characterised by Asian-style graphics which is an interesting trend given that this is an area less associated with spicy pepper.

With hot chilli, you will get 3x3 reels that have a total of 9 active lines. Winning chances are very attractive as the slot is capable of paying as much as 5,000x total stake. This translates to a staggering amount of $225,000 in a single round.

The interface and graphics are very beautiful but the game is a little wanting when it comes to features. Only scatter, wilds and multipliers are included in this slot. Hot chilli’s RTP stands at 96.52% which makes it an excellent slot in the 3-reel category.

Betting and Prizes

Pragmatic Play produces slots that are relatively affordable. For example, I was able to play Hot chilli with the minimum line bet which goes for $0.01. If you are comfortable tackling the high cost, then you can play the maximum line bet. These come with10 coins with each costing $0.50. Given that there is $5 worth of line bets available: then this slot’s betting range hovers between $0.09 and $45.

Hot Chilli Slot Features

Although Hot Chilli has 3x3 reels, the slot doesn’t guarantee a player the presence of symbols across its 9 positions. Occasionally, I came across some empty positions which are marked as piping hot chilli mix. To get a winning combination, I had to get at least three symbols which are of the right type. All these three must appear on the same line. A winning combo must contain the Yellow Cube icon as it is the only one capable of paying.  

Hot Chilli’s wild symbols vary and they come with 2x, 3x, 4x and 5x multipliers. They also have logos on them. In addition to forming winning combinations when mixed with the regular symbols, wilds can also pay a player directly. To get the best out of these symbols, try and get a combo with 2x wilds on reels 1 and 3 plus 5x wild on the 2nd reel.

Hot Chilli Theme & Design

Being a chilli-themed game, it is normal to see the huge bowl that contains a spicy liquid. Within the game’s area, you will come across the red boiling liquid. Occasionally, you will notice some symbols popping up from the bowl. These symbols are in the form of chillies and they have multipliers as well. There are also pieces of meat, fish, and/or tomatoes (they come in three variants) with the last symbol accompanied by a small yellow cube.


I must commend Pragmatic Play for the wonderful job that they have done on this slot. It may be a classic-style slot, but the developer has added some exciting features like the wild multipliers to improve the players’ experience.

Hot chilli has an interface that is easy to manoeuvre but the only thing that I found a little confusing is the Asian Dragons. These dragons appear out of place and do not go well with the spicy chilli. Hot chilli is a slot that offers medium volatility and it has a Return to Player of 96.52%.
