Chilli El Toro by Greentube is an online slot that makes use of BGT’s Megaways mechanic to provide players with thousands of possible ways to win.
But the developers have been pretty restrained in their application of the random reel modifier, and this 5 reel game can produce a maximum of 7,200 ways to win. Not that many when you consider there are some Megaways games that have up to one million. But also not an insignificant number when compared to non-Megaways games.
As you might have guessed, the design revolves around Mexico, and bulls, with a chilli Wild thrown in for good measure. The paytable of Chilli El Toro features unoriginal but stylishly designed cards from Nine to Ace, as the low-pays. The premiums are roses, tequila, cacti, and bulls. The betting range is on the low side, from 0.50 to just 7.50.
The Wild is a hot chilli pepper which will stand in for regular symbols to help complete a winning combination.
The Scatter is a pinata in the shape of a sheriff's star. This triggers the Free Spins when three or more are in view anywhere on the grid.
A good range of bonuses keeps things interesting in Chilli El Toro. The first is a random multiplier active in the base game. Above the main grid is a three position horizontal reel. Different symbols with random multipliers attached, up to x 25, land here on every spin. When these symbols form a win, the multiplier attached to them is applied to it.
The bonus round starts with 10 Free Spins. These are added to every time two or more pinata Scatters land, with 2, 3, 4, or 5 Pinata Scatters awarding 2, 3, 4, or 5 extra Free Spins. The round starts with all wins being automatically multiplied by 2. This increases by +1 every time more Free Spins are won and can reach a maximum of 20.
After wins, players can choose to try and double their prize money by guessing the colour of a face-down card with the gamble feature. But a wrong guess will see them forfeiting their win.
Chilli El Toro is a well-designed, stylish game. It might not be as packed full of ways to win and bonus features as some other megaways games. But there is still enough happening on the reels, both in the base game and the Free Spins, to keep the player entertained. Just keep in mind that running with bulls is not a risk-free pastime, so gamble responsibly, always set a loss limit before playing, and never risk money you need for other purposes. Good Luck.
