Whatever your plans are this festive season, whether the whole tribe are descending on your home or your out and about visiting relatives, the chances are you’ll get some time to have a spin of the festive reels at some point this Christmas.
It could be when the family are all dozing on the sofa after a scrumptious feast on Christmas Day or when everyone’s out shopping in the sales, but if you do get the chance to spin the reels, we thought we’d choose our top five Christmas slots to share with you.
Like our Halloween slots piece, we’ve picked five festive slots from five different casinos.
Festive Slots Top Five
Santa Paws At Betway Casino
Santa Paws is a game developed by Microgaming Quickfire. It features 20 pay lines and five reels.
Part of the charm of this slot game at Betway Casino are the ‘frosty’ characters that appear on the reels.
The game features include free spins, wilds and a gamble option whilst it is in play.
Three penguins will start the free spins and when these are in play, there’s 7x multiplier on all wins. Additionally Rudolf the whale will become an extra wild during the free spin rounds.
Santa’s Wild Ride At 32 Red Casino
Santa’s Wild Ride is another Microgaming Quickfire game, this time with 243 different ways to be paid out.
There are an array of different free spin options available on this game at 32 Red Casino, all activated when you spin in 3, 4 or 5 sleigh keys. You then have to choose the type of wild that you want to use:
- Stacked Wilds – stacked on all reels
- Expanding – can expand to make all of the reel wild
- Trailing – creates a trail of wilds as it slides down the reels.
There’s also the free gift bonus when you spin in the presents on reel two or five.
Santa Surprise At Gala Casino
This is a five reel, 20 pay line slot created by Playtech.
On the reels of this game you will find snow covered houses, wreaths, candles, presents, bells and of course, Santa himself.
There are two bonus features on the game:
- The scatter symbol that triggers free spins with 3x multiplier when you get three or more on a payline. This can be reactivated infinitely.
- The Christmas Gifts bonus which is activated when three of more of the bonus symbols appear on the reels.
The Christmas Gifts bonus gives you the opportunity to play a mini game. In the game, you have to choose the number of gifts that activated the bonus. These will reveal cash prizes.
Ghosts Of Christmas At Paddy Power Casino
This is another Playtech slot with 20 paylines across five reels.
However, it doesn’t have the traditional festive feel to it. Instead, it appears to be based on the book, Scrooge.
The bonuses on these games are activated by Marley’s ghost and the clock.
When you get three Marley’s ghosts on the reels, you will then be awarded free games. The winnings on these free games are tripled and can be reactivated infinitely during the free spins round.
The other bonus is the Ghosts Of Christmas Bonus activated when you spin in three of more clocks on a payline. you will be taken to a mini game, Past, Present or Future.
Here you have to choose items (3, 4 or 5 dependent on the number of clocks that triggered the bonus) to win cash prizes.
Happy Holidays At Mr Green
The final game on our list is Happy Holidays, another Microgaming Quickfire title but this time at Mr Green.
There’s an impressive 1024 ways to win should you activate the free spins because an extra reel is added.
The standard game has five reels and 243 ways to win.
The symbols are more traditional on this slot with children opening presents, stockings, gingerbread houses, snowmen and Christmas trees to name a few.
The symbol to watch out for is the Scatter bauble because it is this that triggers the free spins.
Also, keep an eye on the Snowman too because this frosty little fella in the Frosty Feature means only one Scatter bauble is required to launch the free spins bonus.
Well that’s our top five, but what titles would you have listed?
