The 5 reel, 3 row and 20 payline slot was developed by Pragmatic Play, and is presented in a red reel rimmed with gold frames against a dark blue night background with snow covered trees and twinkling stars. There is a soft jingle in the background that is an adaptation of “Jingle Bells” and the symbols are colourfully illustrated.
The lower value symbols are the royals 10, J, Q, K and A, whilst the higher value symbols are a traditional candy cane, a pair of bells, a deer and an elf. There is a Santa wild that can match any of the other symbols to create a winning combination; this symbol only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The Santa symbol can appear as a single wild in a reel, but also frequently appears as a stacked wild, which makes the whole reel wild, improving the chance of forming more wins.
In addition, there is a bonus symbol that is a golden gift box and a scatter symbol that is a tile with a Christmas tree and the word “scatter” on the bottom.
Stakes can be set between €0.20 and €100, with an option for an autoplay functionality that spins up to 100 spins automatically.
Landing the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 will trigger a gift round, or alternatively, Santa can randomly pass by on his sleigh and drop bonus symbols on the required reels to activate the gift round. The gift round takes the game to another screen where there will be 12 gifts with hidden prizes that you can open. These include coin prizes and jackpots such as the Grand, Major, Minor or Mini, which are worth 250, 50, 25 and 10 times the original stake, respectively.
The free spins can be triggered by landing the scatter symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. This awards six free spins, and although the bonus game cannot be triggered during the free spins round, the Santa wilds can still be landed. If you can land the stacked wild Santa on all four reels then you can win 200x your original stake for each spin.
The bells and candy cane can pay on combinations of 3, 4 and 5 symbols, whilst the elf and reindeer can pay combinations of 2, 3, 4 and 5. The elf symbol pays the highest, with a maximum of 400x for a combination of 5, 125x for 4, 25x for 3, and 2x for 2.
