Chili Heat is a 5 reel, 50 payline progressive jackpot slot which is powered by Novomatic. With a Mexican theme, it can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 50p to £50 a spin. It offers you up to 30 free spins as well as a progressive jackpot.

Chili Heat is based on Pedro who is the coolest hothead in a Mexican town – he never misses a fiesta and his struts his stuff to the hottest salsa beats every night. Colourful and bright, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards, maracas, trumpets, sexy señoritas and Pedro himself. Pedro is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols bar the scatter – he gives you 20 times your stake for 5 on a payline.

The fiery Chili Pepper is that scatter with 3, 4 or 5 giving you 2, 20 or 200 times your stake as well as triggering the Free Games feature – you will receive 15 free spins. During the feature, additional Pedro wild symbols are added to all 5 reels to increase your winning potential. You can also retrigger the feature with 30 free spins available in total.

Chili Heat also comes with a progressive jackpot – if all 5 reels are filled with the Pedro symbol, you will win it! The jackpot can only be won if playing at the maximum stake – if playing for any less, you will win the corresponding amount.

I quite like Chili Heat – it’s vibrant, colourful and can pay handsomely in both the base game and Free Games feature. The presence of more Pedro wilds in the feature really does help. If you like Mexican themed slots, there are plenty to choose from with Taco Brothers Saving Christmas from ELK Studios and Grim Muerto from Play ‘N Go my favourites.
