Evolution, the world’s largest provider of live dealer games for online casinos, has announced that its already vast portfolio has further expanded with the launch of Extra Chilli Epic Spins, a brand new and innovative live game show.
The new game is quite unique as it manages to blend live casino entertainment with slot games in a game show that was created around the theme of Extra Chili, one of the most successful slot games produced by Big Time Gaming.
This studio was acquired by Evolution in 2021 in a deal believed to be worth around 450 million euros. Big Time Gaming is the company that created the renowned Megaways mechanic, which has later made its way into hundreds of video slots from the world’s biggest suppliers.
This mechanic is also present in Extra Chilli Epic Spins and Evolution describes the experience provided by the game as “real-time slots with friends” as slot game entertainment combines with the thrills of a live game show.
The slot game has six reels plus an additional horizontal reel at the bottom, which can contain “Wild” symbols that can substitute any of the other symbols in the game, boosting the player’s chances of forming winning combinations.
The game is set in a colorful Mexican market and the hosts are also dressed to match the theme. The action kicks off with a pretty straightforward base game, in which all players enjoy the same round which contains five consecutive spins.
Additional multipliers can be triggered in the game, along with 16 Free Spins whenever the “HOT” word is formed on the reels. That combination takes the game into the “Gamble Wheel” phase, which features two physical wheels that are spun by the game host, providing more multipliers that can take the potential rewards to high levels.
