Most of us get a dose of Christmas spirit at some point around the holidays. And when this happens, you'll probably get the urge to play some Christmas-themed slots too. That said, here are 5 games that'll fill you with Yuletide Joy and hopefully put big payouts in your Christmas stocking!
Charles Dickens' 1843 novel has been told many times, many ways through movies. But no slot has truly brought Ebeneezer Scrooge to life until A Christmas Carol. This 5-reel, 3D slot takes players into Scrooge's bedroom on a snowy London night, where he's visited by 3 ghosts. Only, these aren't scary ghosts by rather prize-giving apparitions, including the ghosts of Past Winning Spins, Present Wilds, and Future Winning Spins. The best aspects of this game are the crystal-clear 3D graphics, atmosphere, and bonuses that reflect the story.
This is the first in a series of games by RTG. Return of Rudolph sees the red-nosed reindeer in a very angry mood after a gang wrecks Santa's Workshop. Rudolph doesn't guide the sleigh in this 50-payline adventure, but rather takes out his revenge with a baseball bat. The goal is to catch the thugs, get back all of the presents, and save Mr. and Mrs. Claus. On top of a cool story line, you can also look forward to some unique features like Santa's Strike Back, Rudolph's Revenge, and Rudolph's Rampage.
If you want an edgy slot that shows Santa's naughty side, then check out Naughty or Nice. Another game from RTG, this 50-payline slot offers many standard elements of Christmas, such as tree bulbs, reindeer, and Santa himself. But Naughty or Nice also features hot women who wear the skimpiest of Christmas lingerie. This being the case, it's no wonder why an angry Mrs. Claus is featured with a rolling pin! As for the girls, you can select your favorite to get the Naughty or Nice bonus feature to boost your payouts.
If you want an online slot without an edge, Deck the Halls is the perfect pure-Christmas treat. This game is strictly about a classic holiday theme, as you'll hear the Twelve Days of Christmas playing in the background, see tree ornaments, and get a picturesque view of the tree by a snow-covered window. Special symbols to watch for include the Deck the Halls logo (wild) and bonus bells, which ring in free spins when appearing 3 times on the reels.
Produced by Rival Gaming, Winter Wonders is a 5-reel, 15-payline slot that not only features Christmas elements, but also cheerful snowmen. Santa is still the king here, though, because he serves as the wild symbol and also pays up to 5,000 coins. The scatter symbol is the sleigh, and it both multiplies your bet up to 10x and triggers free spins when appearing 3 or more times on the reels. Overall, this isn't the most in-depth slot on the list. But those who want a simple Christmas adventure that takes them to a winder wonderland will enjoy this slot.
