Will my chilli seeds still germinate?

Hey, back with another question! I have some chilli seeds (Razmataz) + Hotwax which were sown about 21 days ago (not sure if im being impatient). Some came up but a lot of them didn't. I have them in a propagator on the window sill on top of a heat mat and the thermometer is saying about 20 atm. Just wondering since its been so long since i put them in the dirt if it would be best to dig them up and try some more seeds or if its worth waiting or not if there's still a chance for them.
I only did a small sowing of six seeds of each variety in my heated propagator. Hoping to get three plants from each batch, ended up with four out of six.
I'm happy with that.
Some seeds can take up to 28 days to germinate.
Chriscore, maybe try watering with warm water. I heard someone say that they are extremely sensitive to the cold before germination, so it has to be reasonably warm.
