Chilli Bandits Slot Overview

Chilli Bandits is a new casino slot from Slotmill where we head to Mexico and are introduced to a notorious gang, the Chilli Bandits. It’s not the first time we travel to the west with Slotmill. One of the first games the provider released was Outlaw, which invited us to a cowboy-themed adventure that was really cool for its time. However, Slotmill has come a long way since and has grown into one of the best providers in the business, creating innovative, good-looking slots, often featuring several various feature buys. This one’s no different, so let’s dig in!

Base Game

Chilli Bandits is a video slot from Slotmill that features 5 reels and a row setup of 3-4-4-4-3. Players can choose between a solid range of bet sizes with a Min.bet of 0.20 and a Max.bet of 50. The game has an RTP of 96.11%, placing it just above the industry average on that metric. Lastly, Chilli Bandits offers high volatility gameplay and a potential max win of 15000x the bet

Cowboy adventures are often high-paced and packed with action, and so is this one. The features are Wild Symbol, Scatter Symbol, Chilli Wild Symbols, Burst Mode, Free Spins, and Fast Track Features Buys

Chilli Bandits Slot Information

The game takes place in Mexico, where a gang of Chilli Bandits are roaming. The gang consists of Clint Heatwood, Chilli the Kid, and Belle Pepperr. These names clearly play off of Clint Eastwood, Billy the Kid, and, well, who? Perhaps Belle Star? Or more likely, the fruit, bell pepper. Whatever Slotmill is referring to, we love some good ol’ wordplay, so thanks for that! The visuals are crisp, and the animations silky clean. Add some epic western country music to that, and you have yourself a really cool setting. 

Chilli Bandits can be played on all common mobile devices and desktops. A winning combination is created by landing 3 or more matching symbols on consecutive reels, starting from the leftmost reel.

The lower-paying symbols consist of 10, J, Q, K, and A. Five-of-a-kind with these pays 0.9x-1x the bet. The higher-paying symbols include maracas, cacti, pistols, hot sauce, and money bags. A full line of 5 with one of these will pay 1.5x-3.5x the bet. Wild symbols substitute for other paying symbols, and the Scatter symbols (bonus) are used to trigger the Free Spins feature. Clint Heatwood, Chilli the Kid, and Belle Pepperr, all have different features attached to them, which we will now take a look at!

Free Spins

Wild Symbol

Wild symbols enable more winning combinations by substituting for other paying symbols.

Scatter Symbol

Scatter symbols are available on reels 2, 3, and 4. Landing all 3 triggers the Free Spins feature. If you only land 1 or 2, the Scatters will be converted into Wilds. 

Chilli Wild Symbols

Chilli Wild symbols are 4-row high Wilds that can land on reels 2, 3, and 4. If they only land partially, they will nudge to fill the whole reel. The following Chilli Wild symbols are available:

Clint Heatwood (green): Doubles the win ways.

Chilli the Kid (red): Splits up to 6 regular paying symbols. Each split symbol counts as 2 symbols.

Belle Pepperr (yellow): Converts up to 6 random symbols to the same symbol.

Burst Mode

The Burst Mode can be accessed in the bottom right corner. This one is for the impatient, as it allows you to do turbo spins without even seeing the reels. You get to choose your bet size and how many spins you want to do, and then you’ll get a new interface where you see how much you’ve won during the Burst spins and how many you’ve done. You can either choose to stop if the bonus round is won to see the feature or keep bursting through it.

Free Spins

When the Free Spins feature is triggered, a gamble wheel is displayed. If you start the bonus right away, you will get 8 spins. If you choose to gamble, and do so successfully, 4 extra Free Spins are awarded. After the first gamble, you can either take 12 spins or gamble one more time for 16. 

During Free Spins, a Chilli Multiplier is active, which multiplies the win when there are Chilli Wild symbols included in the win. Each Chilli Wild symbol that lands increases the multiplier by 1 for the remaining Free Spins. A +1 Spin symbol can land on reels 1 and 5 during the Free Spins, awarding an extra spin. 

Fast Track Feature Buys

The following 3 different feature buys are available in the game:

10x = Guarantees that the next spin triggers at least 2 Scatter symbols, with a 1 in 10 chance to land a 3rd. 

40x = Guarantees at least one Chilli Wild symbol to land.

80x = Triggers the Free Spins feature. 

Chilli Bandits Slot Conclusion

We are getting used to top-notch content from Slotmill. It’s one of the few providers that use these types of feature buys, similar to ELK’s X-iters, for example. We believe that this is the future of slots, as it allows players to participate in high-potential mechanics without necessarily having to buy the full bonus. Thus, it’s great to see an up & coming provider focus on this. 

Visually, this is one of Slotmill’s best releases. Although the setting is rather simple, it looks fantastic. The graphics are super crisp, and Slotmill has created a lively feeling by animating parts of the background, such as rolling dust. It’s a small touch, but it makes a lot of difference to the atmosphere and environment. 

The gameplay itself is not the most complex that Slotmill has produced, perhaps because it features a somewhat normal grid. We really like that, though. There’s a time and place for super advanced gameplay and mechanics as well, but a simple game can be just as good, and that’s what they’ve achieved here. Sure, the Chilli Wilds have some different features that you need to learn to fully understand the game, but that’s a simple task, and it’s all smooth sailing from there.

Chilli Bandits by Slotmill takes players to Mexico, where a gang of odd bandits and a max win of 15000x the bet await.
