Christmas is upon us and the festive-themed slot games are making their way to the fore yet again. Whether you love Christmas or not, it’s worth checking out some of these Santa slots because many have great gameplay as well as being super celebratory.
Secrets of Christmas is one of the biggest yule slots right now, having the clout of NetEnt behind it and some great gameplay, as well as being incredibly Christmassy. These are just five reason to give this slot a try, next time you’re at a bingo site that hosts it, such as Mr Green.
What’s great about Secrets of Christmas is that it captures the Christmas vibe without going overboard. The game revolves around a log cabin, dusted with snow. It’s rustic, festive and homely, a great game for playing while you’re cosy at home in the warm. You could just imagine hiding out in this cabin for the winter, living off chocolate and turkey. The symbols on the reels are festive wreaths, milks and cookies, Santa himself, stockings, bells- all the classic stuff! The soundtrack of the game supports the vibe too, with festive jingling and a gentle rhythm that fits the theme without hitting you over the head with it.
The game also shifts to show the inside of the cabin as part of the bonus round, where there’s a hidden-object-style scene of 20 fun Christmas objects and gifts to see. The animation of moving through the frosty window is very reminiscent of classic holiday movies. This is a simple pick and win mechanic but it has a very nice aesthetic and the wins range from wild reels to free spins, so you have plenty of possibilities to unlock.
This is a NetEnt game, which will mean something to any slots veteran or just to players who have seen a few sites. A vast number of slot games are produced by this company and they’re always popular. Examples include Starburst, Drive: Multiplier Mayhem, Finn and the Swirly Spin and The Legend of Shangri-La. NetEnt games always have both solid artwork and animation, plus good gameplay mechanics. You can expect quality and consistency with this provider.
Secrets of Christmas is a solid game in its own right. The game has a Return to Player (RTP) of 96.72% and a max win of 350,000 coins. This is a 5-reel game with 25 paylines, not just a basic slot with some Santa symbols slapped on. Santa is a wild symbol in this game, so you want him to appear nice and early instead of waiting for Christmas Day. The toys are scatter symbols and activate a free spin mode. Try the slot for yourself and see what you think!
