It may be a mild May Monday where I’m sat writing this right now, but there’s always space in a slots player’s time for a little Christmas-related fun. Most of the festive-themed slots online play the same, and all have a nice sense of the festive season, pretty graphics, and at least one generous bonus feature.
In this 5 reel, 15 pay-line slot here we get plenty of festive symbols, including Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, the sleigh packed with pressies, a Christmas tree, a turkey, Xmas pudding, bowl of egg nog, a gingerbread man, and a candy stick. No matter what time of the year you will be playing this, you will be craving Christmas Day after a few spins on this slot.
Santa Claus is Wild?!
The game’s Wild is the Father Christmas/Santa Claus character, substituting for all regular symbols other than the Scatter. Five wilds pays a nice little 15,000-line bet jackpot, and with 10 coins per line allowed on your bets, that can work out to be a really nice little payout.
Unwrap a Present to Reveal 20 Free Spins and a 2x Multiplier
The Scattered Christmas present triggers a free spins feature that is as basic and predictable as a knitted hat and scarf from Granny on Christmas morning. However, receiving 20 free spins with a 2x multiplier is rather like expecting socks and opening a PS3. Kinda.
On the face of it, Ho Ho Ho is probably closest in tone to another Microgaming offering – Deck the Halls. In that 5 reel, 30 pay-line slot, the spins were a little less – 10 in all – but a 4x multiplier bumps things up a bit. But with a 2x multiplier on all free spins wins, and with a potential jackpot in the game of 2.4 million coins, not to mention some really lush graphics, the smarter money is on that game.
At the other end of the Xmas spectrum, Playtech’s take on Dickens – Ghosts of Christmas – is packed with great bonuses (three in all) and a tasty 10,000-coin jackpot. Microgaming also have the enjoyable festive treat of Secret Santa that will prove addictive to any yuletide lover.
