Santa Slot Review 2020
Have you been well-behaved? Because Santa is Wild and everywhere on the reels. In the Free Spins round, he fills random reels with Wild. And when you finally see his sleigh full of presents, Jackpots are up for grabs in the Bonus game.
Santa and Mrs. Claus have been talking for a while to begin crafting something else, besides toys and presents. They asked the Elves and Rudolf, their most trusted friends, what they think about building a slot game. Rudolf loves slot games, so he was thrilled by the idea. His nose started shining with happiness. Without waiting too long, Mr. and Mrs. Claus started designing the slot game, and, before you could say “Merry Christmas”, the game was ready! The Claus husbands said they added some pretty interesting features.
Santa is a festive (and a little frozen) game with a 5×3 slot machine, 20 cheerful paylines and a top prize of 451x times your stake. That’s what the players on Santa’s Nice List receive.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus thought that the best symbols are the ones they know:
- Cute, Smiling Elf – Pays 20x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
- Red-nosed Reindeer – Pays 15x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
- Christmassy Bells – Pays 10x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
- Candy cane with a Bow – Pays 7.5x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
- The Ace Card – Pays 5x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
- The King, Queen, Jack and 10 Card – Each pays 2.5x your stake if you hit 5 on a payline
A perfect Christmas Tree, with red and golden bubbles and a shiny star on top is the Scatter Symbol. This festive symbol pays out 2x your total bet and can appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. The Christmas Tree Symbol is also the key to triggering the Free Spins Feature. The Scatter pays 2x total betspins.
Hit 3 Scatter symbols to trigger the Free Spins Round. In the Free Spins feature before the completion of any spin reels 2, 3, 4 or 5 can become fully covered with WILD symbols.
Special reels are in play during the Free Spins feature. The Bonus Game cannot be triggered during the Free Spins feature. The Free Spins feature cannot be retriggered.
Mrs. Claus insisted that Santa would make a symbol that looks like him. He said he’s too old for this, and, besides, he doesn’t look good in photos. Mrs. Claus said that’s not true, and, together, they created the Wild Symbol. As you probably guessed, it looks like Santa. This symbol can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, and can also substitute all other symbols, except for the Bonus and the Scatter ones.
The golden present with a big, red bow is the BONUS symbol which appears on reels 1, 3 and 5. Hit 3 Bonus symbols to trigger the Bonus Game.
In the Bonus Game there are 12 gifts present on the screen. Keep opening gifts to reveal prizes until you find a JACKPOT symbol. When a JACKPOT symbol is revealed the Bonus Game ends. The values of all revealed prizes are added together with the JACKPOT value and the total amount is paid.
There are 4 available jackpots in the BONUS GAME each with a fixed value of total bets:
- The Grand Jackpot – multiplies 250x your total bet
- The Major Jackpot – multiplies 50x your total bet
- The Minor Jackpot – multiplies 25x your total bet
- The Mini Jackpot – multiplies 10x your total bet
