One of my favorite themes for slot games is when there are chilli peppers involved. I found the Chilli Gold slot game at GoldBet Casino and I played that thing for hours!
The peppers double as wild and as the bonus symbol. You need 6 of them on the reels in order to trigger free spins. I was betting $2 per spin. Playing this slot actually lifted my spirits. Maybe it was the colors or maybe it was the thought of having a margarita but it definitely wasn’t the fact that I was winning.
There were a couple of land based casino slots that had the pepper theme and they paid pretty well. Nothing great was happening but I played on and off all afternoon. After a long break, I came back and raised my bet to $4 per spin.
Believe it or not, in all that time I hadn’t hit one single bonus. The payout was decent because it kept me going for such a long time but I never really got anywhere. It was like running in place all day.
My bankroll dwindled down to somewhere around $22 and I had to verify that the bonus awarded 21 free spins. When I read that I didn’t believe it. Then I realized it was “up to” 21 free games. Six peppers only gave you 3 free spins! Good thing I checked the paytable but I wish I had done it sooner. You need 12 peppers in order to get 21 free spins.
I couldn’t even trigger the minimum bonus. At least I was able to stretch my balance and have some fun.
