More exciting new slots are coming our way this week. Highlights are releases from Konami, WMS Gaming, Novomatic, and Push Gaming. Take a spiced-up tour of Mexico in Chili Chili Fire™ or hunt for treasures and jackpots on Reel Riches™ Fortune Age™. Something more divine maybe? Then take on the mighty Norse gods in Loki Wild-Tiles. Up for a head-banging session? Turn It Up™ just might be the right choice.

Other releases with high entertainment value include Quick Hit Ultra Pays Sun Dragon from Bally Technologies and Electric Tiger from IGT. But let’s take a closer look at the top four of this week.

Chili Chili Fire | Konami

Can you take the heat of those super-hot chilies or are you the type that folds at the first taste of spiciness? Either way, this quirky creation from Konami will entertain all players, as the reels are full of hot surprises. Chili Chili Fire™ is a Mexican themed video slot with a brightly colored game window in a 5×3 format and 30 fixed paylines.

Stacked symbols, random symbol replacements, and the new Fade Away™ feature, plus a Free Spins round will provide ample chances to hit full screens of high-value symbols and spicy super mega-wins. For starters, each reel contains Action Stacked Symbols™. At the beginning of each spin, the game can randomly replace them with one common symbol, giving more chances to score multi-line wins. The friendly señor is the wild symbol and will appear stacked at all times to substitute for all symbols except scatters.

True to Konami’s creative innovation drive, the game introduces a new pay mechanic, called Fade Away™. Triggered randomly at the end of any spin and after eventual line wins are paid, any 9’s to A’s on the reels will gradually start to fade away, only to be replaced with high-value symbols, wild symbols, or scatters. Want more spice? Then hit minimum three scatters to trigger the free spins with more frequent Fade Away™ features. Re-trigger the feature indefinitely for more big wins.

Reel Riches™ Fortune Age™ | WMS

Just another Asian-themed slot or an outstanding game? I’ll opt for the latter, as WMS has thrown in all its creative power to produce a thrilling slot with huge win potential. An intricate 5×4 game window with some stunning teaser animations and fire-breathing dragon scatters are accompanied by a typical serene Asian soundtrack. Stacked wilds and free spins with a pick-and-click game to increase the multiplier and amount of spins are already good ingredients for awe and suspense.

Hitting three or more dragon scatters in one spin will trigger the Free Spins. A second screen appears with 18 red treasure bags, containing five differently colored gems, plus additional free spins and multipliers. Players can now pick bags until they collect three matching gems. Each gem represents a number of free spins and multiplier. Unveiling three matching gems will award the corresponding amount displayed on the left of the game window.

However, the big money is in the five-level Wheel of Fortune bonus feature with five fixed jackpots, initially worth up to 1,250x the original stake. Each jackpot is marked by a colored Asian coin; triggering the feature with multiple coins will multiply the jackpot amount, raising the maximum win to well above 6,000 time your stake.

Loki Wild-Tiles | Novomatic

Fans of cascading video slots will have another field day as Loki Wild-Tiles offers a thrilling option for a gaming session in their preferred format. With dark clouds and a storm brewing in the background, the game grid with Norse ornaments has a 5×5 size with 25 positions. A Nordic sword on the side of the grid will increase the multiplier on every winning cascade.

At the beginning of each spin, 25 symbols drop from the top onto the grid. Hitting three matching symbols will pay for the win and transforms the middle symbol into a wild while the other two burst and disappear. Any new three-symbol combo after that will create another wild until no new winning combo is possible. Four- or five-symbol combos will only award the respective win. Removing all symbols on the grid will be rewarded with an extra coin win.

Hidden behind the tiles are vertical rows with the word “Bonus.” Clearing a row to fully uncover the row will trigger the bonus game with ten free drops. The game leads to a second screen with new symbols and paytable. A minimum of five or more matching symbols scattered on the grid will award wins of up to 150x your stake. A multiplier is active if the feature was triggered by clearing multiple Bonus rows in the base game, taking the maximum win for a single drop to 750x the initial bet.

Turn It Up™ | Push Gaming

It’s time to turn it up! The volume, the wilds, the multipliers, and the wins. Experience a totally new game mechanic, called Reel Enhancers, that will turn up the winning potential to a head-banging 2,500x the initial stake. All action happens on a live concert stage with the speakers blasting a catchy rock tune and a game window with five reels, three rows, and ten paylines.

Each losing spin will see different Reel Enhancers jumping into action, improving the chances for bigger wins on the next spin. Symbols are replaced with high-value symbols, which in turn are transformed into wild symbols while an increasing multiplier can go up to x10 for the next winning spin. Any activated Reel Enhancers are reset after a winning combo.

Turn up not just the volume but also the heat with the free spins feature. Activated with three scatter symbols on reels one, three, and five it will provide much higher win potential as the Reel Enhancers will not reset after a winning spin. Instead, they are advancing even further on the grid display on top of the game window.

Thought the action is over with the last free spin? Think again because the feature will continue until another winning spin while further enhancing the reels. The very best chance is to hit a full screen of wild symbols with a x10 multiplier for the maximum win in a single spin of 2,500x the initial stake.
