Chilli Gold, released in 2012, is an slot game made by Lightning Box Games; its numerous distributors include Stars Group, SG Digital, Top Trend Gaming, and NextGen Gaming. Lightning Box Games has since made it a slot game series, thanks to a second game called “Stellar Jackpots with Chilli Gold X2”. More Chilli from Aristocrat Leisure Limited, Chilli Chilli Fire from Konami, Extra Chilli from Big Time Gaming, and Red Chilli from Amatic Industries are among the rival games.
A golden chilli pod among the symbols inspired the name Chilli Gold whose players seek two, three, four, and five matching symbols.
