Our top 3 Christmas themed slots
Only a few more days until arguably the most magical holiday of the year, Christmas. Twinklelights don’t tickle everyone’s fancy, but for Christmas lovers all around the world it’s a wonderful time to spend with our families and loved ones. But let’s not forget that hosting that perfect family dinner involves a lot of planning, organizing, shopping around … and more planning. To take a break from all the hustle and bustle we’ve been getting ourselves in a more relaxing Christmas mood by playing our favorite Christmas themed video slots. Curious what our top 3 is?
Our top three Christmas themed slots originate from two game providers: NetEnt and Micro Gaming. The first two slots are both created by NetEntertainment: Flowers – Christmas Edition, and Secrets of Christmas. NetEnt’s original version of Flowers has been around for a while, but the Christmas themed version was released late last year. Although some players loved the slot’s Christmas makeover, it didn’t quite hit the spot for the real die-hard Christmas lovers, and so NetEnt launched their first original Christmas themed slot this year: Secrets of Christmas. Last but not least, number three on our list is the MicroGaming slot Santa’s Wild Slide.
Play Flowers: Christmas Edition for real money!
The original slot has been around for some years now. It was launched back in 2011 and was remastered together with Fruit Shop for a joint Christmas Edition release late 2015. The slot kept all it’s original features but rather than a summer vibe it’s now sporting a winter wonderland theme, including snow covered symbols and Christmas ornaments. Christmas Edition is a 5 reel, 3 row video slot with double symbols, wild substitutions, and free spins featuring stacked wild symbols. To activate Free Spins you’ll have to hit 4 or more Free Spins Symbols. These symbols can appear as single symbols (which show 1 cloud), and as double symbols (which show 2 clouds). Double symbols can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. The return to player percentage of this slot is 96.3
Play Secrets of Christmas for real money!
The latest edition to the Christmas themed slots of NetEnt is Secrets of Christmas. It’s their first original Christmas themed video slot. Everything about it screams Christmas, from the North Pole sign to the the Santa Claus Wild Symbol and gingerbread houses. Symbols are displayed in a cozy window whilst snow flakes trickle down. The slot has 5 reels, 3 rows, and a total of 25 fixed bet lines. Hit three or more scatter symbols in order to activate 10 Free Spins. Before the Free Spins kick off you’ll enter the bonus game. You can pick from 20 Christmas gifts from the toy room to win extra Free Spins Bonus Features. The amount of gifts you can pick equals the amount of scatters you hit in the main game. Examples of extra features you can win during the bonus game are extra free spins and multipliers.
Play Santa’s Wild Ride for real money!
Santa’s Wild Ride features a Santa who’s, well – a bit more on the Wild Side than we’re used too. He’s cruising around town on his motorbike whilst other symbols such as beer pints and his sidekick are featured in the slot. The slot also features a gift box symbol which will aware you with a random amount of coins. When spinning three blitzing key scatters, you’ll be able to choose between three Wild Features:
– Stacked Wilds: appears stacked across all reels
– Expanding Wilds: Can expand to make the entire reel wild
– Trailing Wilds: Creates a trail of wilds as it slides down the reels
