HOW TO PLAY EXTRA CHILLI EPIC SPINS LIVE SLOTS
So how do live slots even work in practice?
The game itself works on a loop of rounds, and each round consists of 5 spins. As a player, you can only choose to bet or not – just like in normal slots. Putting up a stake once qualifies you for 5 spins.
From there on, things work as you would expect from a slot machine. Matching symbols aligned from left to right award prizes based on the number and value of the winning symbols. All players with an active bet in that round are paid out according to the game’s paytable.
Interestingly, the Epic Spins game uses the Megaways mechanic. This randomizes the number of symbols per reel with every spin, and it also means there are no fixed paylines. You can find out more about how Megaways slots work here.
Crates and Pinatas
Like any self-respecting modern online slot, this game spices things up with a few special features.
Occasionally, a large crate may appear in the middle of a game round. It opens to reveal one of two possible prizes – a multiplier or a letter.
The multipliers simply increase any winnings in that round of the game by 1-5x. You can receive several multipliers during a single round of Extra Chili Epic Spins, in which case they stack for potentially massive payouts.
Alternatively, the Crate may reveal letters H, O, or T. If this happens three times in a single 5-spin round and you spell out the word HOT, the Free Spins and Gamble Wheel features are triggered.
The Pinata is essentially a supercharged version of the crate. Pinata multipliers range from 10x to 20x, and a single Pinata with letters will immediately complete the word HOT.
Free Spins and Gamble Wheel
Extra Chilli Epic Spins free spins are awarded to all players with active bets during a round that managed to spell out the word HOT. 8 spins are awarded from the get-go with a shot at earning more.
As you might imagine, free spins use the stake you used for the initial round to determine payouts. Crates and Piantas can also appear during this bonus round, so there’s a chance to stack up even bigger multipliers. Also, the free spins round can be re-triggered (but only once.)
Once no more free spins are available, the presenter will walk over to a small wheel. It’s split into purple and red sections, and players are given a chance to predict which of the two the wheel’s pointer will land on. Everyone participating makes an independent decision, and if they get it right they get two additional free spins.
Once that’s over, the wheel will spin a second time. It works much like the first time around, except there are four sections to choose from, which makes it quite hard to predict. If you do, though, you get 2 spins for free yet again.
