Who Needs Hot Ones When We’ve Got Hellapenos Slot

Most chili pepper people will measure the heat of a pepper using the Scoville scale. The scale was invented in 1912 and is basically a subjective heat test based on the taste buds of a panel of five trained tasters. Which, of course, raises the question, how do you train to be a professional chili pepper taster? I assume there is a fair amount of toilet paper involved.

If chilies are your thing, Hellapenos slot from Thunderkick may be right up your alley.

Are you ready for a chili challenge?

The chili pepper multiplier wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols, except for scatter symbols and the Expanding Devil symbol, to complete winning combinations. Any winning amount will then have a 2x multiplier applied to it. If multiple multiplier wilds appear on the same payline, the multiplier amounts will be multiplied together, and then the resulting multiplier will be applied to the winning amount.

The two leftmost reels will only feature stacked symbols between two and five symbols high. If both reels feature the exact same symbol, between one and three multiplier wild symbols will be randomly placed on reels three to five.

The Expanding Devil symbol will only appear on reels three to five. If, once it does appear, it is involved in a winning combination, it will expand to cover the entire reel and act as a wild symbol substituting for all other symbols, except the scatter symbol, to complete winning combinations. If the symbol expands through a multiplier wild symbol, the entire Expanded Devil symbol will receive a 2x multiplier.

The bonus game is triggered with the appearance of three or more bonus symbols. During the bonus game, any Expanding Devil symbol that appears will activate the reel it lands on. An Expanding Devil symbol will appear on all activated reels on every spin during the bonus game.

How spicy is Hellapenos slot?

Hellapenos is stuck with very high volatility. This means that you will not be able to count on small, consistent wins. This one is all about chasing those big wins. If you’re betting at the $50 a spin top end, you’ll be playing for up to $250,000 thanks to the 5,000x maximum multiplier. If you’d prefer to bet closer to the $0.10 a spin minimum, your winning prospects will, of course, be more conservative. The slot has an RTP of 96.18%.

You could be forgiven for assuming that there isn’t a lot to work with when selecting chili peppers as a theme for a slot. It’s an assumption that I have seen proven correct over and over again. However, Thunderkick found another gear with Hellapenos slot. The slot is wild. The graphics are amazing, with a meeting of the hell and chili pepper motifs melding together perfectly. The animations built into the Expanding Devil symbols are also a great addition and really bring a lot to the gameplay. The bonus features aren’t as extensive as I would have liked, but there’s still plenty there to keep you engaged. I give this one an eight out of ten.
