Is it hot in here or is it just us? Pragmatic Play has delivered a firey slot with Hot Chilli, using a deceptively simple layout to bring us a slot online experience hotter than your average Carolina Reaper.
Built on a 3×3 grid, Hot Chilli does harken back a little to the glory days of the vintage fruit slot but that’s just about all that this game has in common with the genre. We love the delicious-looking symbols and the exciting animations that come to life every so often.

Hot Chilli bonus features
Hot Chilli takes place inside an ornate cooking pot, complete with gold dragon handles. The paytable is permanently displayed along one side of the game screen, which is handy for players.
We can see a reel grid but symbols don’t so much spin in but float out of the broth below. The number of symbols also differs – unlike other games, you are not guaranteed 9 symbols on each round. When a winning combination appears, chopsticks take away the winning symbols.
Tofu, mushrooms, chunks of beef, sweet corn and shrimp appear as symbols, with the shrimp being the most valuable, awarding 11 times the stake for three in a winning combination.
The bright red chilli is the Wild symbol and it can substitute for any other symbol (except the cube of tofu) on the reels. Or should we say, in the broth.
When a red chilli with a number appears in Hot Chilli, that is a multiplier. These can range in size from x2 to x5 and the more multipliers that appear, the bigger the payout. The paytable also offers a handy guide as to how much a player stands to win at their current bet size.
There’s nothing as satisfying as a simple bowl of soup and Pragmatic Play believes that the soup-based delight that is Hot Chilli has more than enough going for it already. As a result, there is no free spins feature available in this game.
