Why play Hot Chilli?

There was some debate at JohnSlots HQ after we gave Hot Chilli a test drive. The online casino game takes place in what appears to be a cooking pot, with symbols floating to the top of a boiling liquid instead of spinning into place as in traditional reels. The debate? Is it chicken or beef broth?

That question hangs over us still but we do know for certain that there are no ifs, ands or buts about Hot Chilli – this is one sharp-looking game with a unique and entertaining theme. A word of warning, you might need some snacks by the end of it.

Hot Chilli is built on a 3×3 reel set and only offers Wilds and Multiplier Wilds as features. This might seem like it would not sate every player and that is probably true. Hot Chilli is not a game for those who are constantly hunting for bonus features.

It is, however, a fun and quirky game that certainly had us interested for a long time. Straightforward gameplay is livened with an unusual ‘spin’ mechanic and the manga-style food symbols are cute and oddly realistic at the same time.

Overall, Hot Chilli is a tasty, amusing slot that delights players with its unusual appearance and whose volatility allows players to keep spinning for quite a while.
