'Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to be jolly than to win big prizes from a Christmas-themed slot game? There are lots to choose from but like busy elves, we've sorted through Santa's sack and found five of the most popular games that will get players in a festive mood.
Games For All The Good Boys And Girls
Deck the Halls comes from Microgaming and they were definitely in the mood to spread some Christmas cheer when they designed this 5-reel, 25-line game. Baubles, stockings over the fire and presents under the tree will set the scene, but the magic of Christmas really starts when the wild symbol appears, completing combinations and doubling payouts. Three or more bell symbols will ring in some winnings by triggering 15 free spins, during which payouts are doubled and the wild symbol is stacked on the reels to quadruple wins.
The stunning animations that we come to expect from NetEnt bring the Secrets of Christmas slot to life. Wreaths of playing card symbols, and decorations fill the 5 reels of this 25-line game, but look! Here's Santa himself, acting as a wild symbol and expanding over the reels during the free spins feature. Players will be ho ho hoping to land win multipliers in the free games, which is made easier by the bells and candle symbols becoming extra wilds.
A Present From Playtech
Santa Surprise comes from Playtech and when the Christmas Gift Bonus feature begins, players will be surprised by the high-paying potential of the presents under the tree. A snow-covered house opens up 10 free spins, with all winnings tripled during them and the feature can be retriggered over and over again. Santa smiles at players from the reels, bringing them Christmas greetings when he substitutes for other symbols and completes extra winning combinations.
The Play'n GO company is based in Sweden, not far from Santa's base at the North Pole. Their festive gift to slots players is called Holiday Season, and it's a game packed with wintery fun, such as free spins with guaranteed wins in each and a high-paying wild symbol. A roast turkey, a watch counting down to midnight and a young woman in a Santa outfit will appear over the 20 paylines, with wins of up to 500,000 coins to claim, compliments of Play'n GO.
A Warm Welcome To Winterberries
Sweden is also the home of Yggdrasil Gaming and players will be getting a shiver down their spine when the valuable symbols of the Winterberries slot game line up across the reels. Beautifully-designed symbols spin against an icy backdrop, but there's no chance of a frosty reception when the bonus features are awarded. Any 3 or more matching berries across a payline will trigger a free respin, with the winning symbols locked in place. The feature carries on, potentially filling all of the game with the same berries for massive rewards.
Warm up those long winter nights by spinning the reels of these hot slot machines in the run-up to the big day itself and beyond.
