Everyone loves a classic fruit machine they can return to time and time again because let’s face it, nostalgia is the backbone on which the entire slot industry is built on.
As such, we felt it necessary to take a look at Playson’s intriguing Red Chilli Wins slot game.
We open the floor up to a standard 5×3 reel layout with players having a chance to work their way through nine different paylines.
There are some usual contenders on the reels when it comes to themed symbols including 7s, oranges, cherries, lemons, grapes, watermelons and more.
The return to player (RTP) percentage is always going to be a divisive topic, but for most slots, it can be used as a guiding light to discover the financial rewards that can be uncovered. This includes the Red Chilli Wins slot game as their reported RTP rolls in at 96.07%. That’s below the average you’d expect but with medium to high volatility, there’s a lot of excitement to be had here if you’re persistent enough.
You only have to put down $€£0.20 if you want to get the journey started before riding up to a possible maximum stake of $€£100. Oh, and if you’re really lucky, winning 7,575x your initial stake is on the table.
This is as colourful as it gets in the slot world (although we’re happy to be proven wrong), and that makes for quite an old school feel. Sure, some will say it goes a bit too far, but what do you expect for such a throwback?
The Win Both Ways function is in play here which ensures winning combinations can start from the right side or the left side of the reels.
There isn’t a whole lot else to enjoy in terms of bonus features outside of the base game, but the chilli symbol can get things moving as the wild card. It can substitute for all other symbols on the reels and it also comes with multipliers attached – which is a nice addition.
This can send out payouts between 3x or 5x when it forms part of a winning combination, although it’s only able to land on the middle reel.
Outside of that there’s nothing particularly flashy going on, which is probably just the way this slot likes to operate.
The Red Chilli Wins slot game gives us a clear indication of what the past looks like, as well as what things we’d all like to see implemented within the future of slot gaming.
Playson gives us a trip down memory lane that is enjoyable, serves up strong potential wins and gives us repetitive gameplay that could easily threaten to become addictive.
In our book, you should give this a go – if only to see what life on the other side of the slot coin was like.
