Christmas 2016: 'Tis the Season to Play Holiday-Themed SlotsPublished December 24, 2016 by Arthur M
There are lots of Christmas themed slot games around but a few of the top ones that can be found at popular online casinos are outlined here.
It's that time of year once again and online casinos are promoting their Christmas themed slots to their players and this year there are more games featuring Santa, reindeer, presents and sleighs than ever before. There's too many to cover here, but some of the most popular include Secrets of Christmas, Merry Xmas, Santa Surprise, Christmas Carol and Santa Paws.
Secrets of Christmas
This new NetEnt game can be found at casinos such as Lapalingo Casino, BETAT Casino and Playamo Casino and sees traditional images of a gingerbread house, stocking and glass of milk left out for Santa, who makes an appearance as the wild symbol. A free spins round is triggered by the scatter symbol and before they commence, players select presents to reveal the number of spins that they get and any multiplier amount that will be in effect throughout them.
Developed by Play'n GO, Merry Xmas is a brightly coloured slot, decorated with images of crackers, candles, bells, Santa and Rudolph the reindeer across 5 reels and 15 paylines. Wild multipliers are complemented by a quick bonus round that starts when three presents appear. Players just click one to get a bonus win of up to 150 times the bet amount, making this a popular game this season at online casinos such as Video Slots Casino, Mr Ringo Casino and BETJOY Casino.
Winner Casino, WinMasters Casino and William Hill Casino are all featuring Playtechs' Santa Surprise this Christmas. Playing card symbols all wrapped up against the cold sharing the reels with presents, stocking and bells, while Santa is wild and pays up to 10,000 times the line bet. Three or more bonus symbols on a line will trigger a game where players pick presents under the tree for cash rewards.
There is also a free spins round and players can choose to gamble winnings several times over by correctly predicting if a playing card will be red or black.
Available to play at sites such as bet365 Casino, SlotJoint Casino and 10Bet Casino, Christmas Carol, from BetSoft is a beautifully designed, 3D effect game based on the classic Charles Dickens tale of Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmases past, present and future.
Those ghosts each trigger guaranteed winning spins or extra features, while players can double up each win over and over by flipping the Scrooge gold coin symbol.
Released by Microgaming, Santa Paws is a 5 reel, 20 line slot that covers symbols, the reels and even the control buttons in snow. Killer whales, penguins and Santa Paws himself, who is a polar bear in a festive hat, combine to bring players free spins with extra wilds and a multiplier of up to 7x, while a gamble game can turn modest winnings into much bigger payouts. Santa Paws can be found at Platinum Play Casino, All Slots Casino and EUCasino.
Although these games are some of the hottest titles around at the moment, most of them can still be played year round.
