A new release from the ever more famous and beloved provider Pragmatic Play, Santa Slots has a gorgeously crafted Christmas theme and it is likely going to spread across the online gambling world like fire as soon as the first proper snow of 2017 falls. The background of the reels is a spectacularly animated and beautifully looking landscape of a snowy night with tall snow-bound pines to the left and to the right. The snowflakes and their smooth motion on the dark but lovely to witness background steals the show.
The game offers 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. Coin sizes can range between 1 cent and 50 cents. The maximum number of bet coin credits for a single spin is 10. That makes for a maximum possible bet of 100 dollars. The game has a very detailed Information section, which goes through every detail of the generous and easy to understand gameplay.
Santa Claus' Payouts
There are 9 paying symbols on the paytable and the highest paying one is the blond, emerald-eyed, pointy-ear elf, all dressed up in green. He pays 20 coins for 2 symbols, 250 coins for 3 symbols, 1250 coins for 4 symbols and the game's top prize of 4000 coins for 5 symbols. Next up is the deer, probably one of those responsible for pulling Santa Claus' legendary sled forward. The beautiful creature offers 20 coins for 2 symbols, 150 coins for 3 symbols, 1000 coins for 4 symbols and 3000 coins for 5 symbols. The rest of the symbols in the game all offer 3 winning combinations that include between 3 and 5 symbols. The Christmas bells pay 100, 500 and 2000 coins. The candy cane gives 100, 500 and 1500 coins. The Ace offers 100, 250 and 1000 coins, while the King, the Queen, the Jack and the 10 all pay 50, 100 and 500 coins.
Features in the Gift Bag
The wild symbol is Santa Claus himself. He doesn't offer payouts but he is capable of replacing the rest of the symbols in the game with the exception of the Bonus symbols and the Scatter symbol. The wild Satna can show up on the second, the third, the fourth and the fifth reel. The bonus symbol of the game is a golden gift box with a red gift knot. It can make an appearance on the first, the third and the fifth reel.
3 of the bonus symbols activate Santa Slots' bonus feature. In it, 12 gifts will be depicted on the screen and the player will need to open them one by one, receiving prizes in the process until the Jackpot symbol is acquired, which will mark the bonus round's end. The collective amount of all the acquired prizes from the gifts will be added to the value of the jackpot before the two amounts increase the gambler's balance. There are 4 possible jackpots - Grand, which is worth 50 000 (250x total bet), Major - 10 000 (50x total bet), Minor - 5000 (25x total bet) and Mini - 2000 (10x total bet).
The scatter of the game is the Christmas Tree. It can make an appearance on the second, the third and the fourth reel only. 3 of those scatters will activate the Free Spins Feature of the game. There is a possibility that the second, the third, the fourth or the fifth reel can become fully covered with wild symbols. Sadly, however, the free spins round can't be restarted.
Santa Slots will make you feel like a child at Christmas - overwhelmed by a mood of celebration and euphoric at the sight of the giant earnings that are within your reach.
