Chilli Gold 2
Lightning Box originally enjoyed success with Chilli Gold and subsequently, the developers have decided to create a sequel to try and improve upon the success of the original. The focuses on a Mexican theme and the music will straight away remind you of the country. There appears to be a good depth of content with some pretty nice bonus features as well as a smooth and fluid slot experience. Overall, it feels light-hearted and fun to play. We have outlined the primary features below.
About the Developer
The game has been developed by Lightning Box and in our experience, the company creates decent slot games that are usually quite cartoonish with good bonus content and generous jackpots. We have had no bad experiences with Lightning Games prior to playing Chilli Gold 2 and the game appears to be a good effort from the company based on the success of the first instalment.
About the Game
If a Mexican theme appeals to you, then you will have will have a blast on Chilli Gold 2. The game plays across five reels, four main rows and a healthy 40 pay-lines. You can win up to a 1000X multiplier on your original bet and we found that the game is easily played on mobile devices for those slot players that are on the go. The background of the game comprises of the Mexican desert and the smiling donkey character adds a bit of charm to the game interface.
The game has some slightly unconventional betting options with the minimum bet per spin being 48p which we found quite odd. The maximum bet that can be placed is £60 so the flexibility is there for players on varying budgets.
The game interface itself is super simple and easy to operate. The reels consist of many interesting symbols including letters and numbers for the lower valued symbols and the higher value symbols featuring a male character with a moustache and sombrero, a guitar, a parrot a smiling donkey and more. We like the theme of the game and it really feels like a relaxing and welcoming place to play slots.
The game also boasts some pretty cool bonus features which are sure to keep even the most experienced players entertained for a few hours. The wild symbol is represented by the big red chilli and this substitutes for most other symbols on the reel and helps the player pick up more winning combinations.
The main bonus feature allows the player to win a big variation of free spins which are won by landing the chilli symbol on reels two, three and four. Depending on how many chilli symbols land at one time, the player can win up to 21 free spins. The second main feature is the gamble option and allows the player to risk their latest win with the chance of doubling or quadrupling their bet. To do so you’ll have correct guess the colour and suit of a random playing card that is drawn. It’s a risky feature so exert extreme caution when using it.
We really enjoyed Chilli Gold 2 overall. It is a fuss-free slot with great features and a hot Mexican theme. We found the game to be quite addictive so as always stick to a budget and watch out for that gamble feature!
