Oros Gaming is a relatively new name in online slot games, but the team from Nevada is certainly not new to the casino games industry. Founded by former developers and executives from MNCs as big as Video Gaming Technologies (VGT) and International Game Technology (IGT), Oros Gaming had set their initial focus on land casinos. Chilli Inferno is their latest foray into online slot games and their collective experience is reflected well by the title. Is it worth your time as a player though? Let’s find out in this brief but on-point review of Chilli Inferno.
The best introduction to any slot game is an introduction to the underlying game mechanics, so we will start with the basics first.
If you are thinking about a Spanish gastronomy-themed adventure here, then you are mistaken. Yes, the Chillis we have here are certainly spicy with different flavors, but that spice is reflected in each different Chilli’s personality! Yes, we are indeed discussing anthropomorphic Chillis with varying personalities and supernatural origins.
Although the theme in Chilli Inferno is not a novelty, it’s also not as common as Egyptian, Nordic, and Greek pantheon themes either. However, what sets the game apart from other slots in similar themes is a well-executed combination of graphics, animation, and audio. The audio is not just there to provide Spanish-themed soundtracks because each special effect is also accompanied by the appropriate sound effect as well.
If you have played an online slot game in the last five years, the game should feel intuitively simple to understand from the very first round. Paylines go from left to right and in order to land a win in the base game, you will need to match at least three symbols on active (staked) paylines.
The more symbols you match, the bigger your win will be. Five-of-a-kind is the best you can hope for, but your win’s value will differ greatly depending on the symbols you match, and whether it’s a base or bonus round. The Win booster increases the bet by 1.4x.
Match three or more symbols to win up to 20 free spins. There is no set limit in Chilli Inferno regarding how many times the bonus free spins can be retriggered.
For those willing to take on the odds, Oros Gaming promises a 100% boost in your chances of winning if you pay 40% more per bet to activate the win booster. To activate the Link&Win Booster, match six or more Link&Win symbols. This gives you three respins. You can win mini, minor, and major bonuses. Mega prizes are available for matching all the Link&Win symbols.
Everything from the numbers, the symbols, and each different Chilli’s exclusive expressions to the infernal fiery effects is top-notch in this game. Why not give it a try?
