Betsoft Gaming has announced the release of its latest carnival-themed, cascading slot game “ChilliPop”.
Set in an historic Mexican town, “ChilliPop” invites players to participate in a cook-off, with the entire community gathering to watch the best chefs put their own spin on the classic salsa. From the first spin, players will be immersed in timeless Mexican culture: a Mariachi strums his guitar in the shadow of a mission bell, cacti stud the streets and classic ingredients like tomatoes, garlic and onions join potent chilli pepper symbols to create tasty – and top-paying – cluster combinations.
Players will also be on the hunt for brightly-coloured piñatas; breaking open a single one will add a 1X multiplier, with further piñatas adding stacked multipliers to create maximum flavor from a single spin.
Played on a 5×3 grid at first, “ChilliPop” encourages players to get into the fiesta spirit with a secret ingredient: expanding rows and columns that can transform the playing space to a massive 8×8 grid. Made possible by Betsoft’s proprietary “trail system”, the expanding cooking pot is the centrepiece of the game’s Free Falls feature, triggered by players finding three or more smiling, sombrero-sporting mules. From an allocation of between 5 and 26 free spins, the heat then steadily increases as every further mule found progresses the trail towards the next milestone, expanding the playing grid and dramatically increasing the number of ways to win.
“ChilliPop” also allows players to buy into the Free Falls feature at any time, giving them the chance to add their own signature to this famous Mexican sauce – and to walk away with a seriously hot payout.
“Our goal with ‘ChilliPop’ was to create a game with something for everyone, blending a lively, captivating theme with Betsoft’s trademark mechanical and audio-visual excellence,” says Annamaria Anastasi, Marketing Director for Betsoft. “Like the in-game crowds that gather to watch a master chef at work, we know casino players have an appetite for high-quality games that do not sacrifice win potential for accessibility.
“Everything about ‘ChilliPop’ is designed to leave even the most seasoned slots player satisfied: from the tang of the combined cluster pays and stacked multipliers of the base game, to the transformative win potential of the expanding Free Falls feature, we are confident that all kinds of players will find ‘ChilliPop’ to their tastes.”
Like all recent Betsoft games, “ChilliPop” was built in the company’s cross-platform SHIFT development environment, which guarantees that the same great gameplay reaches players on whatever device they choose.
