We head to Mexico in the Hot Pepper! Slot from Pragmatic Play, where you’ll find 7×7 reels with Cluster Pays and a huge 10,000x bet maximum win waiting.
Is this Hot Pepper! slot on mobile too hot to handle? For many, this high-variance game might be. Still, its colourful Mexican theme featuring Tacos, Pinatas, a Cheery Mexican Chappy, and mouth-watering limes will undoubtedly make you hungry.
Being a grid slot, you’ll have to find clusters of 5 or more symbols touching horizontally or vertically to get yourself a win. Sounds easy, right?
Well, it might be, but you’ll have to find clusters of low-paying symbols of 9 or more to get your bet back, with clusters of 6 or more of the higher-paying symbols doing the same.
This Hot Pepper! slot game makes it easier with the addition of Wilds and Multipliers.
On any win, your winning symbols will explode, leaving behind a pepper wild which could have a multiplier attached.
The size of the multiplier depends on how big the cluster of symbols was that triggered the win, along with how many tumbles (consecutive avalanching wins) it’s been through.
A multiplier could be as low as x1 up to a maximum of x128, which can help take those low cluster pays into ones worth winning.
The Hot Pepper! slot has a maximum win of 10,000x your bet. You’ll want to trigger the free spins early to get close to that big win by finding three or more sun bonus symbols.
This will reward you with 12 free spins where the Wild Multipliers start at x16 and goes up to that x128. It makes your opportunity to create bigger wins more possible. But don’t get too excited.
Hot Pepper! is a high-volatility slot game, meaning wins are few and far between, and you could quickly end even the most promising of rounds with 20x your bet back or less. A good round is anything over 100x your bet, and a great round is anything over 1,000x your stake.
In some countries, you can buy the bonus for 100x your bet if you have the cash and can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Regarding grid slots, Hot Pepper! is a fun slot to play, but we think Push Gaming did it slightly better with their Wild Multipliers in the Jammin Jars slot.

Pepper Wilds: Every time a cluster of symbols creates a win, it will leave behind a pepper Wild. The wild can have a random multiplier attached from x1 up to x128, depending on the random wild level it starts at. Tumbles increase the levels of the wild, with each level increasing the multipliers.
Tumble Feature: A cluster of 5 or more symbols creates a winning combination. Each winning symbol will then disappear, adding one wild to the reels and allowing more symbols to fall into place. This action helps create another winning combination of symbols.
3 sun bonus symbols trigger 12 free spins. The free spins are then played at level 5, where depending on how big your cluster win is will determine the size of your Wild multiplier from x16 up to x128.
Free spins will end at any point if you reach the 10,000x maximum win.
Buy Bonus: Depending on which country you are in, you'll see a Buy Bonus button to the left of the reels, which you can press to instantly trigger the free spins at the cost of 100x your current bet level.
The Pragmatic Play Hot Pepper! slot is a fun, colourful slot on mobile that combines cluster pays with Wild Multipliers for some enjoyable spins.
Spins that could land you 10,000x your stake, but more than likely offer around 10 - 20x with a good cluster and wild symbol.
The free spins provide an opportunity for bigger wins thanks to the bigger wild multipliers but often fall flat with what they produce.
It's a great addition to the cluster pays slots collection, but there are better games that have proven to give players big wins, like the Jammin Jars 2 slot, and the Viking Runecraft slot.
