NetEnt have finally created a casino game based around the festive season and this Secrets of Christmas slot showcases all things magical.
This online slot is set on the back drop of a log cabin with the 5×3 reel layout spread across the snowy window pains.
Here rests the incredibly festive animations, with the A – 10 symbols created to look like wreaths, as well as the higher paying ginger bread house, candle, golden bells, cookies, and milk and stocking.
It’s a Christmas slot theme that is tastefully created much like Microgaming’s Happy Holidays 1024 ways to win slot.
However, this Secrets of Christmas slot machine only has 25 paylines, yet still manages to produce lots of quick base game wins that keep you entertained whilst you wait for free spins to hit.
Which is mainly thanks to one symbol that randomly pops up from time to time.
The wild symbol is that of the big white bearded man with spectacles himself: Santa Claus, or Kris Kringle if you like.
He will randomly show up anywhere across the five reels in the hope to make a winning combination of symbols. He substitutes for all the other symbols except the bag of toys scatter which triggers the free spins.
This is what makes this game so effective; the fact that you probably get more wilds show up than you would across many of the other NetEnt casino slots, with lots of little wins and some not so little wins.
We’ve had some very decent 25x our total bet wins pop up in the base game, but it’s in the Secrets of Christmas slot free spins where you’ll experience a true festive miracle.
The base game is the starter to the main course, the only problem is that you’ll have to spin quite a few spins to get to the festive treats hiding inside.
In our experience it can take between 100 and 200 spins to find three or more of the scatter symbols across the five reels, but it can definitely be worth the wait as there’s something extra special waiting for you under the tree.
When you do trigger them you’ll be taken to a special screen where you get to pick from sets of toys to reveal one of the following:
Depending on how many of the scatters you triggered the bonus game, it will determine how many Christmas gift picks you get, 3, 4, or 5, giving you 3, 4, or 5 picks respectively.
Once you’ve picked you then get taken to a burning fire backed set of reels giving off a warm orange glow making these NetEnt freespins nice and cosy.
You then get to spin in the hope to find some decent winning combinations, much like in the Golden Fish Tank slot game.
Here you can get over 100x your total bet by finding those wild reels and building multipliers, however expect more like 15x – 30x on average.
However, this Secrets of Christmas slot machine online and on mobile provides an overall warm festive feel that will want to make you put on a hot cup of coco, wrap up in a blanket and cosy up for a few spins.
With a betting range of 0.25 up to 125 per spin it gives players on even the slimmest of budgets the chance to have a few spins.
All in search of those wild wins and triggering those exciting and potentially magical free games.
It’s a video slot that you’ll want to play all year round, and not just during the holiday season, so go give it a try for yourself and see if Santa has put you on the nice list.Play Now at Video Slots »
