The Wombat says: Are you ready to spice up your game play, Wombat Fans? Then it’s time to take a spin on Willy’s Hot Chillies slot from NetEnt. It’s a spicy enchilada of a game with a Mexican theme and scorching side dish extras of Multiplier Wilds, Willy’s Hot Wheel and Chilli Multipliers. There´s more heat building up here than you´ll see in the Gold Volano slot. Well, OK, maybe not, but it´s close.
Look and Feel
Get ready for a journey down Mexico way! The reels are set in the Chihuahua Desert among pink flowering cacti with heaps of fun details that includes a chillies dangling from those wooden framed reels, a sombrero swaying in the breeze and a full Mariachi soundtrack. The visuals in this game are top quality as we’ve come to expect from a NetEnt release.
Willy’s Hot Chillies Slot Game Play
Willy’s Hot Chillies slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines just like the Mercy of the Gods slot, but that´s an entirely different kettle of (Egyptian) fish.
Willy offers us lucky players a max win of up to 2000x your stake and it can be played from 0.02 to 400 chilli-infused pesos (or pounds, dollars or euros) per spin. FYI: This wombat reckons it’s on the lower end of the volatility scale.
As for your reel icons, well, as you might expect they are made up of all things Mexican. The high-paying symbols are the treasure chest, the donkey piñata, the bottle of deadly-looking chilli sauce, and the overloaded taco, while the 4 playing card suits make up the low-paying symbols. It’s hotter than Fire Joker Freeze from Play’n GO!
The curly red chilli is the Multiplier Wild – and it will land stacked as x2, x3, x4 or x5! But even better, if 2x or more Multiplier Wilds land on a pay-line their multipliers are added together!
The Bonus icon is Willy himself with a sombrero and some heavy stubble.
Free Spins And Bonuses
Now here’s where Willy’s Hot Chillies slot gets interesting Wombat Fans!

Up to 12 spins are now yours for the taking with a Chilli Multiplier on the side and a cool carousel that comes with a Fire Pointer to dish out the following features:
The Coin Win will pick a number which will be multiplied by your bet and also by the Chilli Multiplier to give you a bonus win. Nice one!

Should you take a big chomp out of Willy’s Hot Chillies slot? And will it tickle your tastebuds like a pickled habanero? The answer is yes Wombat Fans. It’s got a fun theme with an unusual bonus feature that we loved. You may have to wait a while for Willy plus that Wild to land, but when you do, it’s well worth it.
