If you love all things peppers, then this next slot is right up your street. We are headed into the heart of Mexico and onto the pepper farm of a certain Mexican lothario, who has turned away from his womanising ways and taken to farming instead. Direct from the gaming libraries of Tom Horn Gaming we have none other than Don Juan’s Peppers and it’s going to be a hot day in the pepper fields.
Don Juan’s Peppers is a 5-reel, 40 pay line slot, which offers a spicy RTP of 96% for you to get your teeth into. Set inside the pepper fields on Don Juan’s farm, the reels are part of a noticeboard pegged out for all to see and the mountains far off in the distance. It is a glorious day to be farming peppers, but we would rather spin the reels instead. Those reels are full of cartoon like drawings including tequila, donkey’s and of course the usual card symbols make an appearance here too.
You will see that the higher paying symbols are Don Juan himself, his donkey, a guitar and of course the bottle of Tequila. Lower paying symbols are the A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9, all of which are cartoon like in design and given nice bright colours. There is a guitar track playing along as the reels spin, making you feel as if you are sat in the midst of a Mexican village. But there are other sounds too including birds and when you enter the bonus spins it almost seems like there is a fiesta happening right inside your device!
Bet Amounts – Betting on Don Juan’s Peppers begins at 1p per line in play and can be adjusted up to £2 per line in play. This means spins can vary from 1p per spin up to £80 per spin, depending on the number of lines you have in play. Adjust either the lines active or the bet per line in order to reach your desired bet amount.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol in Don Juan’s Peppers is the beautiful Mexican sunshine and it can land anywhere on the reels. The sunshine wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols in the game except for the scatter. It is also the highest paying symbol in the game offering a x300 multiplier for landing x5 on an active pay line!
Scatter Symbol – A red hot chilli pepper is your scatter symbol in Don Juan’s Peppers and it also plays a huge role within the bonus feature too. But, in the main game you need to land three or more anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus spins game.
Stacked Symbol – There is one extra special feature in Don Juan’s Peppers beyond the bonus spins, that is worth mentioning. This is the stacked symbol in the base game which is formed from the Don Juan symbol. He will appear on the reels either as a single position symbol with just his face, or as a stacked symbol with him standing atop of a pile of peppers that his donkey is carrying. This stacked symbol is a nice addition to the base game and makes for interesting viewing, as the symbol is quite comical.
Bonus Spins Feature – If you have landed three or more of the chilli pepper scatter symbol, then you will now enter the bonus spins game. You will be awarded a set number of spins that are allocated according to how many scatters were present when the feature triggered.
- 3 chilli pepper scatter symbols awards x10 bonus spins,
- 4 chilli pepper scatter symbols awards x15 bonus spins,
- 5 chilli pepper scatter symbols awards x25 bonus spins.
During the round the chilli pepper scatter becomes a sticky wild symbol. This means it will remain in place for the remaining spins and act as a wild symbol for that time. However, it will also award x1 extra spin to the total when it lands initially before turning into a sticky wild. You can add up to x20 extra spins to your round this way, but after that there are no further spins allocated.
Well, after all those spins, peppers and wins it’s probably time for a lie down! Overall Don Juan’s Peppers is a satisfying and enjoyable game, and the extra spins in the bonus round are always going to be a winning component for us. Main game wins happen fairly regularly but they can take time to build to the higher pay outs. It is a nice offering from Tom Horn Gaming and one we will no doubt revisit from time to time.
