Santa Slots, by Pragmatic Play, is a 5-reel slot with 20 fixed paylines that must be played on all spins. This slot boasts a bonus game with gifts for bettors to unwrap under the tree and a scatter that involves six free spins that may come with one or more stacked wilds.
Santa Slots is a great looking game; this should come as no surprise to players who have played other titles by Pragmatic Play, as the developer is well-known for both high-quality graphics and gameplay. The symbols are brightly colored and well-designed, giving this title a festive look and feel. The gold gift box is the bonus icon and the christmas tree symbols starts the scatter feature. The Santa Claus symbol is the game’s wild and can be used to replace any icon in a winning combination with the exception of the gold gift bonus symbol and the christmas tree scatter symbol.
Santa Slots has several coin sizes that range from $0.01 to $0.50 and players can wager up to 10 coins on each payline, making it possible to wager up to $5 per payline. The game carries a full 20-payline differential of $0.20 to $100 for each spin of the reels. Santa Slots works with all sizes of bankrolls and betting styles.
The bonus feature is triggered when three or more gold gift boxes appear anywhere on the reels. The bettor is given 12 gifts that players open one by one, collecting cash prized until they find one of the four jackpot gifts. The mini jackpot is worth 10X the initial bet, the minor jackpot awards a 25X multiplier to the bet, the major jackpot gets a 50X multiplier and the grand jackpot awards a whopping 250X the initial wager. Three christmas tree icons trigger the scatter that gives a player six free games. During any free spin there is a chance for one or more of reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 to become a stacked wild on the reels.
Slot bettors who play on a small budget sometimes feel left out by titles that have a large amount of paylines that must be bet to have a better chance of winning; penny play can easily reach out of some bettor’s budgets by having 30 or more paylines. Santa Slots keeps the penny spins to a reasonable $0.15 minimum that allows for more spins on the reels for those with small budgets. Santa is known around the world for being a generous old soul and this year he has gifted penny players with a slot title that offers exciting bonus content but won’t eat up a players small bankroll.
