Online gambling games developer BetSoft has announced that it’s latest Slot3 multi-channel slot will be released on November 28, describing the new game Chillipop as a “cluster-based, cascading slot game with a secret ingredient: an expanding grid offering explosive new ways to win.”
The theme appears to be Mexican cuisine with delicious flavours, spices and colours, all backed by a Mariachi soundtrack. Players try to assemble the perfect salsa, matching symbols like tomatoes, onions, garlic, and red, yellow, and green peppers to create the tastiest (and top-paying) combinations.
Like the sauce itself, things can heat up quickly in Chillipop; any configuration of 3 or more adjacent symbols pays out, and as items are added to the pot, new symbols cascade down to replace them. Couple this with the wild piñata symbol – which can substitute for any ingredient, as well as creating stacked multipliers when several appear on-screen – and players can create maximum flavour from a single spin.
The fiesta gets into full swing with the Free Falls feature, triggered by 3 or more pack mule scatter symbols appearing at once. Over an allocation of between 5 and 20 free spins, Chillipop then uses BetSoft’s proprietary ‘trail system’ to track the number of sombrero-sporting mules that players collect, with set milestones expanding the size of the cooking pot even further. From an initial 5×3 grid, the Free Falls feature can grow the playing area to a massive 8×8, with the new dimensions dramatically increasing the number of paylines.
Claimed RTP on the game is 95.38 percent, and features include Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers, Bonus and up to 26 Free Spins.
