It being December and all, it’s hardly surprising that online and mobile slots developers are currently pulling out all the stops to get their Christmas themed slots out in time for the big day at the end of the month. This year we’ve seen some strange and seeming non-Christmassy slots released, with the oddest certainly being Ho Ho Tower. However there’s one developer which is keeping things nice and traditional, with a slot that promises to spread Christmas cheer in the most traditional of ways.
That’s right, we’re talking about the new Santa slot from Progressive Play which is released this week, and features everyone’s favourite festive character front and centre, in the form of Father Christmas himself (sorry Jesus). This is Progress Play’s gift to all us this holiday season, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally get our hands on this hotly anticipated game to get us in the mood to celebrate.
About Santa Slot
That’s right, it can’t have escaped your notice that Christmas is just round the corner, and with it comes all the annual deluge of new slots to mark the season. Set against the backdrop of a snow covered winter wonderland, symbols in this game include elves, reindeer, Christmas bells, candy cane, and of course, the man himself, Santa.
The 5 reel game features 20 paylines and a 95.92% return to player bonus, making it a fairly average slot in terms of gameplay. Discover the Christmassy winning potential of a game which can see players able to win up to £25,000 off the back of a single spin!
This being a Christmas slot, it makes perfect sense that there would be a few little surprise treats thrown in to put a smile on your face, and the game certainly doesn’t let us down.
Firstly, there’s the random stacked wilds. The Santa symbol in the game is the wild, which will substitute for every symbol other than the scatter. During normal play, you might find the wild randomly stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. Better yet, when you get round to the free spins game, you can additionally find stacked wilds on reel 5.
Certainly the feature we’re most excited about is the Christmas Tree Climb. In this bonus mini game – which you trigger by landing at least 3 of the scatter symbols in the game – you’re presented with a Christmas Tree covered in a pyramid of presents, with 5 at the bottom, then 4, 3, 2, and finally one at the top as you climb. The aim of the game is to land the jackpot at the top, with prizes of multipliers to reveal as you go. If you make it all the way to the top of tree, you’re in for real riches, but even if you make it part of the way, it’s a real gift of a feature.
All that’s left for us to say is that we hope that this game puts you in the Christmas spirit, and that you have a wonderful festive season.
