It’s nearly Christmas! Whether you are already fully engrossed in the Christmas spirit or looking for a way to ease yourself into the holiday season, Christmas-themed slots are probably just what you need. Not only are they full of festive cheer, but they also give you a chance to win huge amounts of money.
For sure, we all can’t get enough of online bingo games, but we researched for some good slot distractions in the meantime. You have probably noticed that there are masses of Christmas slots around, so to help you, we have picked out three of our favourites.
Millions love Charles Dickens’ novella A Christmas Carol, and many people return to it fondly each year at Christmas time. However, whether you have read it or not, you are sure to love the slot based upon it from Pragmatic Play.
As the name tells you, Christmas Carol Megaways uses the popular mechanic developed by BTG. As such, it features 6 reels and can have up to 200,704 ways to win on every spin. On the reels, players will see characters from the novella, including Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Ebenezer Scrooge makes an appearance as the wild symbol while the scatter is a pocket watch.
There is no shortage of features to keep players entertained. As is standard in Megaways slots, the game uses tumbling reels to give players the chance to form multiple wins from a single spin. The main attraction is the free spins round. After landing four or more scatters simultaneously, players are given a choice of three free spins modes. The number of spins on offer depends on the number of triggering scatters. For example, with four scatters, players can opt for 15 spins with a x1 multiplier, 10 spins with a x5 multiplier or 5 spins with a x10 multiplier.
Better yet, during the free spins, each tumble increases the payout multiplier by +1x, and there is no upper limit. In jurisdictions where it is allowed, players will also have the option to purchase the free spins feature for 1000 times the bet.
This festive slot has an RTP of 96.5%, which is highly respectable, and there is a massive top payout of 20,000 times the bet up for grabs. You can try the combination of the festive features, the engaging graphics, and the potential for massive rewards in the slot section of Quality Bingo.
Inspired Gaming has turned the popular ‘Book of’ slots genre into a delightful Christmas game. Book of Christmas is a 5×3 slot with 10 fixed paylines. On the reels are symbols such as presents, sleighs, toy soldiers and, of course, Santa Claus himself. The reels are set against a winter landscape with snow gently drifting down from above.
In regards to features, the slot is very much in keeping with the ‘Book of’ genre. Landing three or more Christmas book scatter symbols awards 10 free spins. Before they begin, a standard symbol is chosen randomly to become an expanding symbol. After each spin, the chosen symbol will expand to fill a reel if there are enough of them on the reels to award a payout. Better yet, the expanding symbols will payout as long as there are enough on a payline. It doesn’t matter if there are gaps between them or where the combination starts.
The slot has a respectable RTP of 96.23% and a top payout of 2,500x. While it may not be the most innovative game, anyone who enjoys the ‘Book of’ genre is sure to have a great time spinning its reels.
Given the choice, many of us would ask Santa to bring us a big jackpot for Christmas, and Santa’s Fortune slot from Wizard Games is offering exactly that.
It is a 5×3 slot with 25 paylines. In keeping with the Christmas theme, the action takes place in front of a snowy landscape while the reels are framed in gold to add to the festive cheer. On the reels, players will see snowmen, elves, reindeer and gingerbread men. The lower value symbols are the royals crafted from candy cane, while Santa is the wild, and the Christmas tree is the scatter.
Special present prize symbols can land on the reels, and there is also a sleigh collect symbol that can land on the fifth reel. If prize symbols land on the same spin as the collect symbol, then the value of the present is collected and awarded to the player.
Santa’s Fortune also gives players the chance to win four collect pots, the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand. When prize and collect symbols land together, the Collect Pots feature may also trigger at random. Players have to choose from 15 prize symbols to reveal collect pot prize symbols. They win a prize once they find three matching symbols. The Mini, Minor, Major and Grand prizes are worth 50, 100, 200, and 1,000 times the bet, respectively.
If that wasn’t enough, the slot also offers a free spins round. Landing three scatters awards 8 free spins, and the free spins can be retriggered an unlimited number of times. In jurisdictions where it is allowed, players are also able to purchase the free spins.
Thanks to all of these features, Santa’s Fortune delivers excitement on every spin and with a bit of luck, it could award you a huge prize to ensure that you have a Christmas you’ll never forget.
