Winning CombinationsThere are few names in the online gambling community as well known and respected as NetEnt. They have consistently released well-designed games with interesting features and top quality graphics. Willy’s Hot Chillies lives up to this well-deserved reputation.

With the number of slots being released each month, it can be difficult to develop a game with a fresh theme. The Mexican theme is no exception to this. However, with their wealth of experience and innovative design team, NetEnt has been able to craft a simple yet good looking slot game in Willy’s Hot Chillies.

The reels sit within a portable chilli cart set against the Mexican desert. The simple illustration coupled with warm, vivid colors creates a playfield which is a joy to look at. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the visual design though, this slot is packed with features that are certain to bring you back time and time again.

The reels are populated by thirteen vibrant and quirky symbols, eight regular ones, four wilds and one bonus. The symbols are:

  • Low worth = Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades
  • Medium worth = Taco, Chilli Sauce
  • High worth = Piñata, Treasure chest
  • Wilds = Red chilli peppers
  • Bonus = Willy 

This medium volatility, 5×3 reel grid slot has the potential for popularity due to its frequent payouts and welcoming design. It will appeal to all types of slot fans and gambling styles with its betting range of $0.20 to $400.

Bonus Features of Willy’s Hot Chillies Slot

Bonus imageWilly’s Hot Chillies includes two bonus features, a series of multipliers and a free spin feature.

There are four multiplier symbols, represented by red chilli peppers with the value clearly shown, which can appear during the base game. The multipliers can increase your spin winnings by 2x, 3x, 4x, and 5x. Another neat aspect of the multipliers is that several can stack per reel, which can dramatically boost your winnings.

The second feature is Willy’s Hot Wheels. This is, essentially, a free spin round with additional elements. It is triggered by having the bonus Willy symbol appear on the first reel and multiplier symbols landing on the other reels. Unlike other slots, you are awarded free spins for each reel with multiplier symbols, so the more reels you have multipliers land on, the better.

The total number of multipliers on each reel dictates how many free spins you will have per reel. As the feature starts, each active reel will catch fire and the game screen will shift upwards to a horizontal reel. Every column of fire will display its number of free spins.

On the horizontal reel, you will find three icons, numbers ranging from 1 to 30, +3 spins, and Extra. Each offers a different prize, they are:

  • Numbers – a coin win of 1 to 30 times your bet.
  • +3 spins – awards an additional three spins to the fire column which lands on it.
  • Extra – awards you with an extra fire column, complete with the same number of free spins as the one that landed on it.

You will notice that there are flaming chillies at random intervals above the reel, this is the Chillie Multiplier. All winnings during Willy’s Hot Wheels are multiplied by this chilli, so the more you collect, the more you will win.


All in all, Willy’s Hot Chillies is a fun and inviting slot. Payouts are, generally, small but frequent due to being a medium volatility slot with a 96% RTP. However, it does cater to all types of slot fans with its betting range of $0.20 – $400.

The free spin feature is entertaining and adds an, almost, game show feeling to the slot. We enjoyed spinning Willy’s reels and recommend giving this slot a spin. You can visit the NetEnt website to try it for free before risking real money, but we expect you won’t be disappointed.
