Playzido’s Lucha Chilli Slot Review

Wrestling chillies is the unusual theme in Lucha Chilli, a madcap Mexican-themed slot from Playzido. Played using a 5 reel, 25 payline game engine, it comes with randomly added wilds, rows of matching symbols and a free spins round. After the spins are over, the wrestling chillies fight. If your chosen one wins the contest, you’ll get more spins, a multiplier boost and one symbol is removed from play. Reach the bonus wheel and you could win 1,000 times your stake. Play from between 25p and £40 per spin.

Crazy theme

The theme in Lucha Chilli is ridiculous and that’s matched by the cartoon design which is an explosion of colour. With a wrestling ring in the background, you’ll see sweetcorn, taco and chilli characters dressed up as wrestlers. They’re joined by tickets, bags of gold coins and a championship belt. The Lucha Chilli logo is the top symbol, awarding 2, 4 or 10 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 across a payline. There’s also a chilli wild that awards the same payouts as the logo.

Loco Wilds feature

On any spin you could see the crowd below the reels go ‘loco’. They then lob chillies onto the reels and turn random positions wild. A payout then follows with the new wilds in place. This is called the Loco Wilds feature.

Spotlight Stealer feature

The Spotlight Stealer feature can also trigger at random on any spin. A spotlight will land on 1 row. All the positions on that row will then transform into the same matching symbol and a 5 of a kind payout follows.

Fight Night Bonus feature

Top of the bill in Lucha Chilli is the Fight Night Bonus feature. It’s triggered by spelling out the word FIGHT with symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. Pick a chilli fighter. You’ll then play a random number of free spins. At the end of the round, your wrestler will take on an opponent. If successful, you’ll get another round of free spins and a multiplier increases to 2x. The opponent’s symbol is also removed. There are 3 potential opponents so multipliers can reach 4x.

Grande Prize Wheel feature

If your wrestler defeats all his opponents in the free spins, you’ll then get a spin in the Grande Prize Wheel feature. On offer are payouts of up to 1,000 times your stake here depending on where the pointer lands.

Madcap action

We liked the Lucha Chilli online slot. The theme is ridiculous and that’s matched by anarchic design and madcap gameplay. It all comes together very nicely. Like most slots from this developer, the variance is in the medium range. You can win up to 500 times your stake if you fill the reels with Lucha Chilli symbols and/or wilds – if you add in the potential 4x multiplier in the free spins, you could win 2,000 times your stake from each free spin.

The silly theme won’t be for everyone but if you fancy donning your virtual spandex and jumping into the ring, then Lucha Chilli delivers some entertaining action. You should also try Yggdrasil Gaming’s Lucha Maniacs and Thunderkick’s Luchadora which have similar Mexican wresting themes.
