Hot Habanero slot review
If you have played the British-themed Big Ben mobile slot or their medieval-themed game for mobiles, King of Slots, you’ll know what Cozy Games are all about: simple, easy-to-play slots which feature no-nonsense graphics and gameplay. And Hot Habanero – Cozy’s contribution to the box marked ‘Mexican’ – ticks the other Cozy boxes too.
Before you start, first select your betting limits via the ‘Value’ box at the bottom of your mobile’s gamescreen – the maximum bet here is $22.50 – and away you go. There are 15 paylines across the game’s 5 reels and all the requisite accoutrements of a mobile slot, all in easy reach of a single digit.
On the reels it’s a right Mexican takeaway, with Tacos, a Guitar, a Mexican with a Sombrero, Bottles of Chilli Sauce, a Plate of Nachos and a Pinata to keep everything company. The Wild is the Chilli Peppers icon, and it substitutes for all regular symbols in the game other than the Scatter.
Spin the Wheel to Win up to 12x Multipliers
Hit three or more bonus Mexican Scatter symbols and you will trigger the bonus feature round. This round contains a bonus spin wheel that you spin eleven times using the same stake amount. With it you can win multipliers of 2x-12x on your wins.
Unfortunately that’s your lot in the way of bonus features in this game. It would have been nice to get some hot free spins, or even a Pick ‘em bonus featuring a Pinata being bashed to within an inch of its life in the pursuit of riches, but no. However, bagging a 12x multiplier on line bets in the game’s only bonus round can reap some serious rewards – you just have to trigger it enough times, and I didn’t. As for the graphics, I didn’t find them as rich as those in the online version of this game, but the interface is simple and looked OK, even on my small Android smartphone screen.
Cozy are forging ahead right now with some serious slots efforts, both online and mobile, and we should expect a lot more from them during the future. If you like the cut of Cozy’s jib, check out their jewel-themed mobile slot, Rubies & Sapphires, while their medieval-themed progressive slot, King of Slots, is a great no-nonsense alternative for big jackpot-hunters.
