Xmas Magic Slots
Xmas Magic is a game that is sure to trigger some childhood Christmas nostalgia, with classic festive symbols and Santa Claus wild symbols. The 5-reel, 50 payline game was developed by Play‘n Go, and features free spins and stacked wilds as well as a 1,000x jackpot.
The game is set in a town square surrounded by brick houses with a Christmas tree taking the centrepiece. Symbols start from the lower value A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card royals. The symbols of higher value have a festive theme, these include snow globes, cups of hot chocolate, candy canes, Christmas stockings and mistletoe.
A line of 5 mistletoe symbols is the highest paying combination, paying 20x the total bet, this is followed by the Christmas stockings and candy canes that receive 10x, the hot chocolate and snow globes that receive 8x and the card suits that receive between 8x to 4x for 5 on a payline.
When setting the stakes, there is an option to set how many paylines you want active, from 1 to 50. The coin value can be set from €0.01 to €0.10, and the amount of coins can be set from 1 to 5, making a range from €0.01 to €25 per spin. In addition, there is an autoplay feature which allows you to make up to 100 spins with settings for stop conditions.
To further increase winnings, there is a gamble feature where you can double or quadruple your winnings. This feature can be used after landing a winning combination, when you will see an option to gamble the winnings of the round in a card guessing game. You can either choose to guess the colour or the suit of the card, to potentially double or quadruple the winnings, respectively.
Free Spins Feature
The free spins are the highlight feature of the game, these can be triggered when you land 3 Santa Claus scatters on reels 1, 2 and 3, awarding you 10 free spins.
During these 10 free spins, two extra wild symbols are added after every spin to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to help form more wins. If 3 more Santa Claus scatters land, then this will trigger an additional 10 free spins.
Secrets Of Christmas
This Christmas slot is themed with charming Christmas imagery such as bells, holly, stockings, milk and biscuits and Santa Claus. Developed by NetEnt, Secrets of Christmas is easy to pick up, as it features a 5-reel 3 row setup with 25 paylines, with additional free spins and bonus features that are guaranteed to engage you on every spin.
Set in a wooden lodge the reels are decorated with holly, and the symbols include a gold bell, a candle, a gingerbread house, a glass of milk and some cookies, and a stocking. The lower value symbols are A, K, Q, J and 10, which are made up of holly with twinkling lights.
It would not be a Yuletide themed game without Santa Claus, who comes as a wild symbol, substituting for any other symbol to create winning combinations. The scatter symbol is a sack full of toys, which can award free spins.
At the bottom of the reels there is a control bar in which you can set your stake before you start spinning, the coin value can be set from €0.01 to €0.50 and then the bet level from 1 to 10, making a range of €0.25 up to €125.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Landing three scatter symbols, the sacks of toys, will provide 10 free spins, but before these are triggered, you will have to play a bonus round. In the bonus round, you will need to pick from 20 wrapped Christmas gifts to see what additional bonuses you can receive during the free spins. The number of gifts you can open is equal to the number of scatter symbols you landed, these bonuses include:
- An additional 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 extra free spins
- Multipliers of 1x or 2x to the amount that is won at the end of the free spins
- Wild reels in reels two and or four that remain entirely stacked with wild symbols for the duration of the free spin round
- Additional wilds, where the candle and/or the gold bell will act as wild symbols
For each scatter landed, there is a chance to add one of these bonus features to the free spins, these are combined during the free spin round. For example if you land 5 scatter symbols, you may pick 2 wild reels, 5 and 10 extra free spins and a 2x multiplier, giving a total of 25 free spins playing complete with two wild reels and a multiplier of 2x at the end.
Santa VS Rudolf Slots
This whimsical slot alludes to the turmoil and chaos that can occur during the festivities. We all have fond memories of family get-togethers on Christmas, but everyone will be familiar with the disgruntled relative or the family member who took celebrations to excess, and this themed game pokes fun at that part of the holidays.
The quirky slot is set in the North Pole, with the characters standing either side of the reels, Rudolf defiantly wearing Santa's hat, whilst a bare headed Santa stands scratching his head on the other side of the reels.
Santa vs Rudolf is a 5 reel 3 row video slot, with 20 fixed paylines, but there is a lot more than meets the eye in this game. For those who like slots where there are many additional bonus games and features to be discovered, this game includes a win both ways feature as well as free spins, wild substitutions, walking wilds and more.
You can set any stake between €0.20 and €400 per spin, and this slot also has the option for autoplay which can be set up to 1,000 spins, with win and loss limits.
High value symbols include Santa’s sleigh, gifts on a tree, a pet collar, a reindeer snow globe and a Christmas list, whilst the lower value symbols are the card symbols 10, J, Q, K and A. Both Santa and Rudolf are wild symbols, substituting any other symbols to make a payline.
Win Both Ways
Win both ways is a feature that allows winning combinations to be formed from left to right and from right to left, think of it as a tug of war between the two characters on either side that doubles your combinations. This feature is even better when you have a walking wild in the reels as it can pay multiple times.
Both the Santa and Rudolf wild symbols are walking wilds, which means that landing either of them will trigger a respin, the Santa wild starts on the fifth reel, and after each round moves one reel to the left, whilst the Rudolf wild lands in the first reel and moves one reel to the right.
If the two wilds crash into each other, they trigger the free spins bonus round.
Free Spins Bonus Round
The bonus round includes ten free spins, during which the wild symbols can land anywhere on the reels. If the walking wilds crash into each other again during the free spins, then you win four more free spins, in addition to this, every time either a Santa or Rudolf wild falls off the reels, it fills a respective meter. If either of the meters are filled at the end of the bonus round, then a further bonus is awarded.
The Meter bonuses
If enough of the Santa wilds have fallen off the reels to fill up the Santa meter, you will get to pick from three sets of prizes, each awarding coins and multipliers for the following spins.
If enough Rudolf wilds have fallen off the reels to fill the Rudolf meter, you are awarded five free spins, which include five reindeer wilds that are put in random places across the reels.
