Explore the Scoville Scale with Arriba Heat! Slot

I’m a fan of spicy cuisine, truly. But lately, the spice game has gone nuclear. There are a bunch of spice-slinging wizards out there breeding peppers so hot they could double as self-defense weapons. Cardiac arrest from a pepper? That’s where I draw the line. I’m all for a culinary kick, not a kick in the guts that has me praying to the porcelain gods after a curry night.

Discover the pain of Carolina Reapers, Ghost Peppers, and good old Habaneros in Arriba Heat! slot from Prospect Gaming.

Can you handle the heat?

In the base game, the Enter the Fiesta feature can be triggered randomly on any spin that includes a wild. When it is triggered, all wild symbols will shift to the left until they reach the first reel, turning any symbol they encounter into a wild symbol. If an Enter the Fiesta wild runs over another wild as it shifts left, it will transform it into a 2x multiplier wild symbol. Once all the shifting is complete, the winning amount will be calculated, and any qualifying multipliers will be applied as long as there is a multiplier wild involved in your winning combination.

Three, four, or five sombrero scatter symbols will trigger the Chili Inferno bonus game and award three, four, and five lives, respectively. During a round of Chili Inferno, the Chili Collector will set up shop in the middle of the slot and eat any chili pepper symbols that appear, leaving multiplier values behind. The standard chili peppers will award multipliers with a value of between 2x and 15x your bet. The Hot Sauce Bottles will leave behind a 30x multiplier.

Each spin that neither a chili pepper nor hot sauce bottle appears on the reels will see you lose one life. Once all your lives are gone, your round is over. There is also a level system. If you collect enough chili pepper symbols during a single spin, you’ll progress through the levels. As you do, the Chili Collector will get larger, and a global multiplier will be introduced and then increased.

Is Arriba Heat! slot worth the heat?

Arriba Heat! slot features ten paylines and a betting range of between $0.10 and $30. If you’re betting at the top of that range, you’ll have a shot at up to $163,020 in winnings thanks to the 5,434x max multiplier. The slot has high volatility and an RTP of 96.11%.

Chili-themed games are always a little goofy. I’m not sure what that’s all about, but it is certainly a part of the trope. Arriba Heat! does attempt to be a little more serious in the base game. But as soon as you trigger the bonus game, the goofiness comes right back. It’s certainly not my favorite slot execution, but it’s far from my least favorite. This one has the added benefit of some great bonus features. Overall, I give this one a seven out of ten.

If you’re looking for a few other hot slots, I recommend trying out Book of Inferno and Lava Lava.
