The main symbols in this game are the chilli peppers. They can be red or gold by color and substitute for all other symbols. The red chilli peppers come during base play on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and serve as wild and scatter symbols.
They trigger the free spins bonus and the number of free spins depends on the number of red chilli pppers that trigger it. You need a minimum of 6 red chilli peppers to trigger 3 free spins, 7 trigger 6 free spins, 8 trigger 9 free spins, 9 trigger 12 free spins, 10 trigger 15 free spins, 11 trigger 18 free spins while the full 3 central reels trigger 21 free spins.
Thanks to the fact they act also as a wild symbol, triggering the maximum number of free spins is a guaranteed big win from the start. Also all wins where the wild symbols substitute in a combination are doubled increasing your chances for a great payout.
Once the free spins start you can get the gold chilli peppers stacked on reels 2, 3 4 and 5. They act only as a wild symbols with the same doubling function and don’t trigger any extra free spins. You can definitely see the payout potential Chilli Gold x2 has in the bonus round, if you manage to get a few reels with stacked wild symbols.
There is also another bonus feature called the Stellar Jackpot. It is triggered randomly and can award cash prizes along with the mini, minor or major jackpot. Here you are taken to a space battle where you have only 3 lives to advance through 6 levels in total. if you manage to pass them all you are taken to the jackpot pick, where you need 3 matching symbols of one of the jackpots.
Chilli Gold x2 has a weak pay table if you look at the symbols payout. The highest paying symbols is the Mexican with a 1000 coins payout with a wild symbol and a 5 of a kind win.
This isn’t much and is equal to a 25 x bet win. Still considering the fact that the wilds can come stacked on 4 reels in the bonus round the payout potential increases substantially with possible wins of over 1,000 x bet.
Chilli Gold x2 has a very interesting game play and can be fun to play over long sessions. We like the fact that there are 40 pay lines and 4 rows, so you have more chances for winning combinations.
The pay table is weak and base play wins are usually small. Still they come often and the stacked wilds award extra medium wins in base play. This way your balance drops slowly and you can put in a big number of spins even with a smaller bankroll.
The bonus round has the potential to pay big especially if you get the maximum number of 21 free spins and the full 4 wild reels in the feature. All you need is luck to win big.
