Chili Gold 2 Stellar Jackpots (May 2016) is a Lightning Box Games’ chili pod-inspired casino game with a Mexican setting. Alternatively called Stellar Jackpots with Chili Gold X2, it is a relatively newer edition of Chili Gold (2012) and among the slot games in the serialized Stellar Jackpots; the series consists of Dolphin Gold Stellar Jackpots (2017), Stellar Jackpots with Silver Lion, Stellar Jackpots with Serengeti Lions, and Stellar Jackpots with More Monkeys (2016). Some rival games: Pragmatic Play’s Chili Heat, Pariplay’s Red Hot Chili, and Pragmatic Play’s Red Chili. A golden chili pod among its symbols influenced the naming. The players aim for two, three, four, or five combinations.
Chili Gold 2 Stellar Jackpots Game Characteristics
Chili Gold 2 Stellar Jackpots has a 5X4 grid. The coin values are multiplied by 48 coins instead of the 40 fixed pay lines. Its two special symbols are: a red “Wild Bonus” (scatter) chili pod (named Red Chili); and a free games-triggering “Wild” golden chili pod (named Gold Chili). These two are both substituting and winnings-doubling symbols.
The ten ordinary symbols are: a Mexican male in a sombrero showing a red chili pod; a grinning purple donkey; a blue-and-yellow parrot; two colorful rumba shakers (maracas); a yellow guitar draped with a colorful scarf; a blue K; a purple Q; a green J; and a golden-yellow 9, and a golden-brown 10.
The Chili Gold 2 Stellar Jackpots credit values: $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.10, $0.15, $0.20, $0.25, $0.50, $0.75, $1.00, and $1.25.
