Independent slots studio Thunderkick invites players to brave the heat with the release of "Hellapeños," a scorching new slot that promises spicy features and blazing wins.
Transported to the fiery depths of hell, players find themselves in a glowing red bar where spicy cocktails and red-hot wins are on the menu. "Hellapeños" introduces a unique 3-3-4-4-4 reel layout, requiring symbols like bottles, card ranks, and a devilish dog to land in left-to-right sequences with no gaps to trigger a win.
Multiplier Wild symbols, represented by chili peppers with x2 values, can land anywhere on the grid and substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Expanding Devils. With the potential for up to three Multiplier Wilds on any payline, players can enjoy a maximum total multiplier of x8.
When the two leftmost reels display identical symbols, one to three Multiplier Wilds will randomly appear on the right three reels.
Expanding Devil symbols may appear on the third, fourth, and fifth reels. These symbols expand to cover the entire reel, turning it Wild if they contribute to a winning combination. If an expansion includes a Multiplier Wild symbol, it transforms into a multiplier applicable to the entire reel.
Activating the Bonus Game requires landing three or more Scatters on the third, fourth, and fifth reels, granting seven free spins. During the Bonus, Expanding Devils on these reels activate the corresponding reel for the entire round, introducing one of these symbols on each subsequent spin for heightened winning chances.
For players in select jurisdictions, "Hellapeños" offers a Bonus Buy option, enabling them to trigger the free spins bonus round at a cost of 70x their base bet.
Following Thunderkick's recent releases like "Hot Potato" and "Bones and Bounty," "Hellapeños" adds to the studio's dynamic and forward-thinking slot portfolio, setting the stage for continued growth in 2024.
Mike Collins, Product Owner at Thunderkick, shared his excitement: “Get ready for hellish fun in Hellapeños, our latest release that takes players on a fiery adventure with spicy winning chances and red-hot mechanics that are sure to thrill!
We’re excited to see the reception to this game’s unique reel format, alongside features such as Expanding Devils, Wild Multipliers and a fantastic Bonus Game that takes Hellapeños to a whole new level.”
