With a title like Chilli Heat, I had expected this game from Pragmatic Play to be hot, but after giving it a good browse through and a quick play, I have to say that it is one more game that isn't really pragmatic to go on playing regularly, or for long periods of time!
Why? Firstly, Pragmatic Play games are not known to be hot games - meaning, they usually do not meet the high expectations of big-win hunters. Take this Chilli Heat game for instance - the win values of all the symbols are extremely low, the Wild symbol is non-paying and doesn't even double the wins with it, getting 3 scatters only pay 1x the total bet, plus awarding only 8 free spins with no win multiplier! My first reaction to all these was "sheesh!" Nevertheless, I gave the game a try, just to see how it would play and pay, but that's about it. The game doesn't attract me at all, the payouts and the free spins doesn't thrill me, and there isn't anything else that would make me come back to play it again!
As I've said numerous times before, any game that doesn't pay for the Wild symbols, and doesn't multiply the wins with it either, are a no-no for me. Getting 2 scatters are non-paying as well, so that worsen the payouts. The top highest paying symbol? Well, get 5 of them and you win 8x your total bet amount - that's simply ridiculous! The 8 free spins are without any win multiplier, so big wins are really impossible to get! Any decent good wins, if you can consider them as 'good wins', may probably come from the Money Bag Respins Feature, with its 3 Jackpot prizes, but then again, the prizes are just not big enough! The Grande Jackpot only has a $500 prize, the Major at $50, whilst the Mini at $15, all at the minimum bet level. But of course, higher bets would increase the prizes accordingly.
Well, even though I only gave this game one play and one try out, I wasn't satisfied with it - not in any way! Chilli Heat is labelled as a medium volatility game, so most of the payouts are expected to be mediocre and average. Nonetheless, there would be players who would enjoy this game, but certainly not the discerning players, who would get better satisfaction and enjoyment from high volatility games instead.
