About Hellapenos

If you are the kind of person who sees the Doritos Roulette flavor as a small challenge and measures life accomplishments on the Scoville scale, this might just be the slot you are looking for.

With Hellapenos, Thunderkick has released a fiery, hot-pepper-infused online slot that features free spins, expanding wilds, multipliers, a Bonus Buy option, and everything related to hot food, such as chili peppers, hot sauce, and overheating gauges.

Hellapenos RTP

Before we delve into the gameplay mechanics and bonus features, we have some other important issue to attend to: the slot’s Return to Player.

Hellapenos has been released in one RTP setting: 96.19%. As is so often the case, CasinoWizard does not rule out that multiple payout versions will be released in the future. If that is the case, we will update this review accordingly and seek out the best high-payout casinos that offer this slot in the best-paying RTP configuration.

Update: As expected, Thunderkick did release more versions of Hellapenos as many casinos prefer to offer their players the lower-paying RTP configuration that averages a 94.17% payout.

CasinoWizard’s verdict: 4 out of 5 stars

Thunderkick delivers yet another well-polished, high-variance banger of a slot.

It’s fast, colourful, exciting, and fresh: be prepared for a wild ride that can pay off handsomely.

The relatively cheap Buy a Bonus option should also appeal to thrill-seeking players who want to take a shortcut to the real action.
