This Santa slot machine features stacked wilds, 5 reels and 20 paylines, it also has a few random surprises in store for those willing to take a spin.
It’s not the best looking Christmas themed slot game we’ve come across. NetEnt’s Jingle Spin or Play’n GO’s Merry Xmas are certainly better looking.
But what this Santa game has is lots of festive cheer packed in to five reels with the chance to win up to 250x your bet in game jackpots and stacked wilds.
Featuring Elves, Rudolph the reindeer, Christmas tree scatters, jingle bells, presents and candy canes as the high paying symbols there’s not getting away from what this game is all about.
Even the low paying A – 10 symbols have flourishes of festive holly and red ribbons.
This Santa game might only be medium variance, but the lower than average 95.92% return to player rate means you’re still going to have to budget your casino cash.
The wins might be frequent with the spectacled St Nick showing up on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 as the wild symbols and often coming stacked. However, the wins often aren’t anything to dance around the room about.
In fact what you’ll find is your casino balance declining spin after spin rather than filling up with sweet sweet wins.
The most we’ve gotten here is around 15x our bet with around less than our bet to 2 or 3 times the norm.
So can the Jackpot Bonus game or Free Spins with stacked wild reels offer any relieve for your wallet?
One of the special bonus games that can help alleviate the pressure on your wallet is the Jackpot Bonus Game.
Here when you find 3 present symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 will take you to a special screen where you get to pick from 12 presents. You keep picking revealing cash prizes until you find one that will reveal either the Major, Minor, Mini Or XX jackpots.
We’ve won around 40x our bet here with the least being around 10x by hitting the Mini Jackpot.
Not a bad top up to your balance but can take quite a few spins to trigger.
Then there are the free spins bonus rounds. You trigger these by finding three of the Christmas Tree bonus scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4.
When you do the reels will turn from red to green and you’ll get 6 free spins where randomly reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 will become covered in wild symbols.
This can lead to some decent 30x your bet wins, but they aren’t as impressive as say the Fat Santa slot or even Pragmatic Play’s own Leprechaun Carol slot machine.
A little disappointing especially as the free spins can take a good 200 – 300 base game spins to hit, so it’s not like your winning little amounts often to top you up and the big wins aren’t really worth the wait.
If you’re a game full of entertaining spins and plenty of action then this real money slot offers that.
It’s not the best Christmas game out there though with Elk Studios Ho Ho Tower and even the older Secrets of Christmas from NetEnt providing better gameplay.
Especially as here you might have to wait a good 100 – 300 main game spins to trigger any worthwhile bonuses.
It’s still a decent addition to our Xmas slots and one where it doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice to play as this Santa Claus welcomes all to take a spin.
Go see for yourself if you can coax the jolly man in red to let you win a few spins or even that in game jackpot of up to 250x your bet at our top slots sites.Play Now at Vera&John »
