Here’s a game that will certainly keep you busy. That’s because there isn’t just one set of reels to keep your eyes on but two. This retro feel game uses symbols you’ll be very familiar with but also some red-hot green and red peppers that spice up the game. There are some big wins to be had here with Mystery Wins and Bar Prizes to keep an eye out for.
Most games just have one set of either three, four or five reels, some have even more. With this slot game with software by Novomatic, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Instead, we have two sets of three reels each having three rows of symbols and five win lines. They sit next to each other In the middle of the screen with two sets of paytables situated above them and the control buttons underneath the reels. The background to the game shows us a posh bar that is probably set in a casino, the bar is on the left and there’s a posh sofa on the right.
The five win lines in this fruit machine related game are a fixed amount but you have two big decisions to make before spinning the reels. You need to decide whether to play the first set of reels, the second set of reels or play both. Then you need to work out how many coins to play on each spin and this can be between one and 250 coins. The minimum bet when playing both the reels is 0.02 and the maximum 50, just sit down and work out a budget that you can feel safe playing at.
The symbols in this game are composed of cherries as the lowest paying one (always the bridesmaid the poor old cherries), the green and red peppers, a bell, and the single, double, and triple bars. All basic in look, no 3D graphics on show in this game but there are some bright lights indicating where your wins occur. Unlike in many slot games there are no wild symbols in this slot and the scatter symbols are absent too.
There’s no free spins round either but that’s often the case in these retro style games. There are some good wins to be had though with three triple bars paying 200 coins and three double bars awarding you 100 coins. As you increase your stake the amounts you win are shown on the two separate paytables at the top of the screen.
The lack of those bonus games what players in the old days were used to. At least in the Sizzling Peppers video slot there are at least you can get a bonus or two. For starters, there’s the Mystery Win and this comes along when you get a mixture of either two Red Peppers and one Green Pepper or two Green Peppers and one Red Pepper. There’s also the Bar Prize which doesn’t see you being awarded some cold water to sort out the burning mouth you’d have after some Red or Green peppers. It’s another mystery cash prize which comes along when you get a mixed combination of the single, double, or triple bars on a win line.
This game has a 95% RTP and the game has a medium to high variance so you will need to be a bit patient for the big wins to come along. With the lack of bonus games apart from those the Mystery Win and Bar Prize, this isn’t too complicated a slot game despite its strange look. It’s still a good idea to have some free Sizzling Peppers slot games to get used to how the game works. Then take a look through the game rules to find out how much the winning combinations pay out and the exact rules of this slot game. It’s also possible to set an autoplay of up to 100 automated spins of the reels which is handy if you need a break from the screen.
There are some other slot games you can play for real cash that have similar gameplay, though they will struggle to look like Sizzling Peppers. You can try your luck on the Playtech slot Purple Hot which has five reels but uses fruit as its main symbols. Just like this game there’s no wild symbol to look out for but it does have four jackpot tiers. There’s also another Playtech slot called Reel Classic 5 which has a higher RTP, no wild or scatter symbols and has lots of fruit symbols.
A unique looking game that will have you looking to the left and the right to keep track of how you are getting on when indulging in some online gambling. It lacks a free spins or pick ‘em round which is a little bit disappointing but the Mystery Win and Bars Prizes can keep your account balance ticking over nicely. It’s good to see the retro symbols back and Novomatic love including games of this type. There are better games out there but this is still worth adding to your play list though probably nowhere near the top.
