Chilli Pop Slot Review

Chilli Pop is the slot machine by Betsoft, a special gift for those players from South Africa who like Mexican food, Mariachi songs and grasping games making a visit to an online casino a quest for new gaming experience. This 5-reel slot is an extraordinary game in all respects: it starts with a 5×3 grid which develops into a huge 8×8 field in the course of up to 26 free spins. It employs the Cluster Pays mechanics and progressive wild multipliers boosting cluster wins and awarding up to $50,000 at the max bet. At that the maximum possible win amounts to as much as $110,000 if playing for real money! This intricate gameplay with electrifying wins along with the happiest images and merriest melodies produce so much fun that the slot has very good chances to become a favorite game in many online casinos welcoming gamblers from South Africa. Like the whole family of Slots3 games by Betsoft, Chilli Pop is fully adapted to Android/iOS mobile devices.

Cluster Pays mechanics, symbols and wins

The slot employs the Cluster Pays mechanics. It makes symbols pay when at least 3 of a kind land in a cluster. A cluster is a set of 3 matching symbols sitting side by side in adjacent positions, vertically and/or horizontally but not diagonally. The 5×3 grid may host quite a lot of clusters and every cluster will pay an award according to the paytable. The paytable defines awards paid by one single symbol in a cluster (in coins); this is so because clusters may be created by 3 or more icons of a kind. The actual win in cash, dollars or bitcoin, depends on the coin value selected by a player. The total bet is always 50 coins and a coin value is adjustable between $0.01 and $1.00, thus a spin can cost $0.50 to $50. Vegetables are regular symbols. There are 8 regular vegetables awarding between 2 and 12 coins each when landed in a cluster of at least 3 vegetables of a kind. This paytable along with the Cluster Pays mechanics may generate wins from $6 to $36 at the max coin value of $1 in case of a 3-icon cluster. But clusters may get much larger and include more regular vegetables brewing an extremely hot salsa since every single symbol in a cluster pays an award. For example, a 3-icon cluster pays up to $36 while a 10-icon cluster of the same icons award $120 at a $1 coin. There is a bonus integrated into the base game and designed to turn every spin into a cascade, or a sequence of wins. It is an Exploding Wins feature: it makes winning clusters explode and disappear, thus producing vacant positions. These positions are immediately taken by new icons capable of producing more clusters, more wins and more explosions entailing new cascading of symbols. All in all, the feature looks like a minting machine coining win after win for the luckiest players. There are also wild symbols and scatters to be explored in detail below.

Wild Piñata multipliers and jackpots

Regular vegetables are assisted by Wild Piñatas when they try to create a cluster but miss a symbol or two. Piñatas are eager to substitute for any regular icons in any cluster. Moreover, when one or more wilds join a cluster, they multiply the win; the value of a multiplier is equal to the number of wilds in a cluster +1, so one wild would multiply the win by x2 (1+1), while two wilds would multiply the win by x3 (2+1) and so on, with no limit. Besides, they pay an award of an incredible scale worth calling it a real online casino jackpot. If 15 Wild Piñatas take all positions on the 5×3 grid, they award x50 the total bet. As the grid develops and unfolds in the course of free spins, Wild Piñatas can land in bigger numbers and award higher prizes, for instance, 20 wilds would pay x75 the total bet and, finally, 64 Wild Piñatas would grant x1,000 the total bet or $50,000 at max.

Pack Mule scatters

Pack mules are highly useful animals, enduring and sturdy. In Chilli Pop, they behave in a similar way. In contrast to regular icons, pack mules do not explode when appearing in a cluster. This is so because mules do not pay any award; instead they unlock free spins. In the course of the bonus feature, they do their best to enlarge the grid and develop it from the initial 5×3 size to the largest possible 8×8 formation capable of awarding the best wild prize of x1,000 the total bet.

Free spins

The bonus feature unlocks when 3+ pack mules land. There is no need to arrange them in a cluster or other special order: three mules in any position will suffice. The player is awarded 5 to 26 free spins depending on the number of mules in the triggering round. During free spins mules come in even bigger herds but this time they are up to another target. They are here not to retrigger a feature or award extra free spins; they are here to enlarge the grid and, respectively, the winning capacity of the online casino slot machine. The Cluster Pays model tends to pay bigger awards when it can create larger clusters, and the 8×8 grid is a perfect place to form, for instance, a 15-icon cluster awarding up to $180 at the max bet or twice as much with at least 1 wild entering the cluster or thrice as much with 2 wilds and so on, as far as Lady Luck may allow. Mules make the grid bigger when they appear on the reels (this looks especially eye-catching when playing in a mobile casino). The slot machine is equipped with a special trail system designed to keep track of all mules coming on the reels in the course of the feature. The trail is displayed to the left-hand side of the reels. It works as follows: Five tracked mules add 1 extra row, ten tracked mules add 1 extra column and so on until 70 mules make the grid reach its maximum 8×8 size. The Exploding Wins feature is active during free spins and makes winning clusters detonate and fade, thus opening positions for new icons.

Double Up bonus game

It is typical of Betsoft slot machines to offer an extra chance of doubling the latest win. The Double Up bonus game unlocks after any win in the base play. The game is designed as a classic coin tossing: players may bet the total win or half of it on Heads or Tails. A lucky guess doubles the stake and offers a new pick round, while a wrong guess ends the feature and restores the main game. Players may also stop the feature and return to the main screen by clicking the Collect button. The Double Up bonus add-on is inactive after free spins.


Chilli Pop (produced by Betsoft) accepts a 50-coin bet worth $0.50 to $50 per spin and awards cluster wins between 2 and 12 coins per icon and wild wins up to x50 the total bet in the base game and up to x1,000 during free spins. The base grid of 5×3 may enlarge up to 8×8 in the course of 26 free spins, creating more opportunities for cluster wins and wild awards.
