Season the cooking pot with all the spice, spirit, and sizzle of Mexican cuisine in ChilliPop, the carnival-themed, cascading slot game…
It looks like the fine people at software developer Betsoft did not get the memo about it being inappropriate for games to appear childish or use characters which might appeal to people under the age of 18. Regardless of how it appears – and it uses onion, garlic and pepper symbols resembling cartoon characters – Betsoft, whose games can be played at Betvictor, Mr Green Casino and Videslots, have certainly spiced things up with Chillipop, a cluster-based, cascading slot game with a secret ingredient: an expanding grid offering explosive new ways to win.
According to the makers: “From the Mariachi soundtrack to the potent red and green chilli symbols, Chillipop is suffused with the spirit and sizzle of Mexican cuisine!” Players try to assemble the perfect salsa, matching symbols like tomatoes, onions, garlic, and red, yellow, and green peppers to create the tastiest (and top-paying) combinations.
“Like the sauce itself, things can heat up quickly in Chillipop; any configuration of three or more adjacent symbols pays out, and as items are added to the pot, new symbols cascade down to replace them. Couple this with the wild piñata symbol – which can substitute for any ingredient, as well as creating stacked multipliers when several appear on-screen – and players can create maximum flavour from a single spin.
“The fiesta gets into full swing with the Free Spins feature, triggered by three or more pack mule scatter symbols appearing at once. Over an allocation of between five and 26 free spins, Chillipop then uses Betsoft’s proprietary ‘trail system’ to track the number of sombrero-sporting mules that players collect, with set milestones expanding the size of the cooking pot even further. From an initial 5×3 grid, the Free Falls feature can grow the playing area to a massive 8×8, with the new dimensions dramatically increasing the number of pay lines.
