More about the Software Provider
Lightning Box Games was created by a group of like-minded individuals consisting of mathematicians, designers, and software developers in Australia back in 2004. When the company first started out, it manufactured physical slot machines for land-based casinos, but quickly extended its remit to include online slots.
The trademark qualities of Lightning Box Games' online slots are excellent graphics, interesting and often unusual themes, smooth animation, and unique bonus rounds. Plus, you can enjoy many of the brand's slots on mobile devices including Dolphin Gold, More Monkeys Stellar Jackpots, Serengeti Diamonds, and Moon Temple.
Appearance and Sound Effects
There's no time for a siesta because the Mexican mariachi music will have you leaping out of your seat and dancing around when you play Chilli Gold 2. Your companions during your playing experience are a middle-aged man wearing a sombrero and offering you a bite of his jalapeno and a happy-go-lucky donkey who appear on each side of the reels in front of a sunny desert backdrop.
On the reels, there are a variety of colourful symbols including a parrot, a guitar, the donkey, the man, maracas, red and gold chillies, playing and card symbols. And, at the top of the screen, you can view the current values of the game's three jackpots.
Bonuses and Special Features
In the main game, Chilli Gold 2 offers you extra chances to win with the Wild Red Chilli symbol. It only appears on the second, third, and fourth reels, and when it comes into view, it has the potential to replace any other symbol if it can help to create a win. The Red Chilli is also the scatter symbol and, therefore, when it lands three or more times on the same spin, it awards a fixed number of free games as follows:
6 Red Chillies = 3 free games;
7 Red Chillies = 6 free games;
8 Red Chillies = 9 free games;
9 Red Chillies = 12 free games;
10 Red Chillies = 15 free games;
11 Red Chillies = 18 free games;
12 Red Chillies = 21 free games.
Throughout the Free Spins Bonus, stacks of Wild Gold Chillies are added to the second, third, fourth, and fifth reels, and they can replace all symbols except the Wild Red Chillies. Plus, any wins that you gain during the bonus are doubled.
The Jackpot Game in Chilli Gold 2 can be randomly triggered on any base game spin, but you can increase your chances of this occurring by playing with higher stakes.
The Jackpot Game is made up of six challenges followed by a jackpot level. Each object that you pick in the challenges can allow you through to the next level, remove a life and award another pick, or award a prize. If you reach the final stage, you shoot at spaceships to discover whether you've won the Mini, Minor or Major jackpot.
Chilli Gold 2 uses five reels, four rows of symbols, and forty fixed paylines, and you can create wins from left to right across the reels. The game has a high RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.32%, and there are three jackpots to play for.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-optimised game controls when played on mobile devices.
The Chilli Gold 2 slot continues the fun of Lightning Box Games' hit slot, Chilli Gold by adding a spicy infusion of three generous jackpots, double wins in the Free Games Feature, and stacked wilds in both the base game and the free spins bonus. Some players might find it too hot to handle, but if you like your slots on the fiery side, give it a try today for as little as 48p per spin!
