Willys Hot Chillies SlotsWe might just get the answer to that question when we check out the new slot game by that same title from NetEnt. Willy’s Hot Chillies has a Mexican theme, as you might have guessed, but just how hot is it to play?
A five-reel game with a prickly background
Prickly because it contains some cacti along with mountains, blue sky, and a Mexican sombrero.
The reels are where the action occurs, of course. A hot-looking chili pepper is wild here, and this can appear in stacks across the reels. The demo video we saw displayed it on multiple reels. We guess you’d be happy if that happened during real play.
The chili pepper carries a multiplier too, shown in the top left corner of the icon. This could be worth 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x. The only reel the wild chilies don’t show up on is the first one.
Watch out for the bonus icon
We guess this is Willy himself. The icon is labeled but look out for a guy with an impressive mustache and a multi-colored sombrero.
He must appear together with at least one full stack of wilds elsewhere. This triggers the Willy’s Hot Wheel bonus. Watch as each wild stack turns into a fiery column of flames. This looks good but it also triggers free games for each wild reel.
You can work out how many games you’ll play by adding the multipliers appearing on each reel. If one reel has multiplier wilds valued at 2x, 3x, and 3x, you’d receive eight free spins.
What is on Willy’s Hot Wheel?
You’ll see this above the main reel set before the freebies begin. The game zooms in to show you this in more detail. It’s possible to secure more free games, coin prizes, multipliers, and another fiery reel.
There is no guarantee of receiving a prize because some spots on Willy’s Hot Wheel are blank. However, you should find you get a few treats before that portion of the game is finished with.
What’s our verdict?
We liked the Willy’s Hot Chillies game because it has no similar games to compare it to. The Hot Wheel is the highlight for sure, and we think the slot game should appeal to those who want something a bit different to play. Check out this new NetEnt slot when you get the chance.
