Xmas Magic slot by Play'n Go needs no description theme-wise as the cheesy Christmas music blasts us when we open the game, with the reels set over a city background nestled in some snowy mountains. For some reason there's no snow on the houses though. Christmas slots can be tedious, often re-hashes of existing games like Nextgen's Foxin' Wins Christmas Edition so I always compare them with the classic originals such as Microgaming's Deck the Halls and also Playtech's nearly as volatile Santa Surprise. So will Santa be adding a few bells to our bankroll here or will it be the cheap aftershave again?
The Xmas Magic slot is quite simple with 50 fixed pay lines over 5 reels of 4 rows and single symbols except the highest, the Bow which pays 20x bet for 5-of-a-kind. Next we get the Snowman Sack or Candy Canes at 10x, Coffee or Snow Globe at 8x with six card values of which the top two are also 8x and the lowest four at 4x for a full line. Wild Presents appear singly on all reels bar the first and your scatter is Santa which appears on the first three reels. No random modifiers, so straight on with our bonus.
The 3 Santas on reels 1, 2 and 3 will award 10 free games which can retrigger once only. Your enhancement is that on the reels 2 to 5 where the Wild Presents appear, there will be 2 added stacked each spin. This means by spin 10 they appear super-stacked 20-high so naturally a retrigger will be important as this would double that amount by the end. The top pay is 20x for the Bows which appear stacked, so 1000x for a full screen of those plus Wilds is possible. The pay limit is 1 million coins or 20,000x bet. Get that, it will be a very merry Christmas!
Xmas Magic slot has kept things simple and there is huge potential in the bonus round, although it's very volatile and is really a copy of the Sofia Free Spins round on Microgaming's original Playboy slot. Your RTP is a shade over 96% and the base game is alright but seldom pays big wins. The music is pleasant, graphics and animations pretty basic and despite the potential, I'm not sure this slot would be at the top of my Christmas wish list...
