About Extra Chili slot
Extra Chilli was undoubtedly one of the world’s most awaited sequels at the time it was launched by Big Time Gaming, although it’s officially not. Widely considered Bonanza Part II, Extra Chili was launched in 2018 and it didn’t take long before it exploded in terms of popularity.
Bonanza had been launched a few years earlier in 2016 and was one of the first Megaways-games at the time. Extra Chili is often referred to as Extra Chili Megaways as it is built with the same Megaways-mechanism. Considered a game with an extreme high volatility, this might not be everyone’s cup of tea at first sight, but we’re sure that the Megaways way of winning and its decent RTP will make up for its variance.
Please note that there is a difference between the game’s RTP when the Feature Drop is used, so make sure to pay some extra attention when we touch upon the Extra Chilli RTP topic.
RTP, Volatility, and Other Details
The standard Return to Player of Extra Chili is set at 96.19%, which we believe will please most players, especially those that were already familiar with Bonanza. That game was launched with an RTP of 96%, so BTG decided to add some extra RTP when it dropped Extra Chili.
Even from an industry wide perspective, Extra Chili’s RTP is above average, so you can’t really complain about the theoretical Return to Player, as long as you’re aware of the fact that this is a long term percentage and that short term differences can always occur. This is what makes games of chance so unpredictable and of course so much fun!
Extra Chili Feature Drop RTP
Please note that this is one of the many games that has an added Feature Drop which is an optional feature for those that are interested in buying their way to the free spins bonus instead of spinning their way and waiting for luck to be on their side.
The Extra Chili RTP of 96.19% which we previously mentioned, is the standard percentage, but things get even better if you decide to go ahead and make use of the Feature Drop. You’ll see a price in the game’s meter that varies, and you can at any time actually pay for the free spin feature if you consider the price to be right.
The standard fee for the feature is typically 50x the bet and this will make the game’s RTP increase to somewhere between 96.26% and 96.82%, which clearly depends on what you’re seeing in the meter. The game without making use of this bonus feature ranges between 96.15% and 96.41% which is a fair percentage as well.
Extra Chili features
Extra Chili is delivered with a few very solid features that will make sure most players will sit on the edge of their seats as soon as the action starts. We’ll briefly discuss the main features of this Big Time Gaming slot game:
- Free spins bonus: as soon as you spin 3 or more scatters (which you’ll recognise by the letters H, O and T), you win the free spins bonus. Three scatters is good for 8 free spins and every extra scatter gives you an additional 4 extra free spins.
- Free Spins Gamble Feature: this is in fact one of the most interesting features you’ll notice as soon as you start making your first real wins. The Game Feature will make it possible to increase your winning free spins even more by selecting the Game Feature. For this you will need to spin a wheel and if it lands on the correct spot, you will get some extra free spins. If the arrow lands on the wrong square, you’ll fully or partially lose your free spins. So the feature can turn out to be risky.
- Feature Drop: this feature is relatively cheap if you compare it to other games as you’ll only have to pay 50x the bet in order to get a minimum of 8 “free” spins. If, in addition to the fixed scatters, BTG symbols also land on your grid while the Feature Drop spins are active, you will receive a discount on the prize, so things might just get a lot better. Playing with the Feature Drop is always interesting as it gives you a shot cut. But there’s another reason for those that are more into finding games with a high RTP: if you use/buy the Feature Drop the RTP can reach up to 96,82%.
Bonanza will always hold a warm place in our hearts and we’re pretty sure we’re not the only ones that share a lot of affection towards this BTG classic. We believe Extra Chilli is very cleverly produced by Big Time Gaming as it comes with both elements from Bonanza and some really nice new features, such as the Feature Drop and the possibility to wager your free spins in the Gamble Feature.
In addition, the Feature Drop causes the RTP to skyrocket and that is always a good reason to take advantage of it, if your budget allows it of course. We’re even mostly satisfied with the standard RTP on the whole, because it is in line with the average Return to Player of about 96%.
All in all, we believe that Extra Chili is one of the best games ever launched by Big Time Gaming and this is from an overall point of view, not just in terms of RTP. Extra Chili lives up to its name and things can get extra chili — especially when you decide to give it a try by applying the game’s Feature Drop.
