Secrets of Christmas Slot – NetEnt new Slots
Secrets of Christmas slot powered by NetEnt is one of the better NetEnt slots I’ve played this year but it sure does have a few tricks up its sleeve. It comes with a very interesting free spins feature where you get to ‘build’ your own free spins game with 5 picks. Initially it awards you 10 free spins but extra free spins can be won with 4x multipliers, extra wilds and two wild reels.
The graphics and animations that feature throughout the video slot is will make your eyes pop. The soundtrack is soothing and certainly gets you in the mood for Christmas. The setting of the slots plays off within a wooden lodge replete with all kinds of Christmas goodies.
With 25 paylines, 5 reels, 3 rows it can be played from as little as 25 pence per spin and pays out a top non-progressive jackpot of 350,000 coins. The return to player percentage or RTP of the slots is 96.7%. Paying symbols on the reels in this Christmas-themed slots is Santa Claus (wild), scatter (basket with toys), cards from 10 to Ace, extra wilds (bells with red ribbon), candy house, gingerbread, glass of milk, candle with mistletoe and sock with sweets. The symbol that offers the highest cash prize is the ‘Bell’, 5 of them at the maximum wager pays you a cool 1,250 coins.
There’s only one bonus mode namely the free spins feature. What makes it unique is that it gives you ‘5 Picks’ allowing you to tinker the free spins feature as you deem fit. Kudos to NetEnt for turning an otherwise run-of-the-mill Christmas slots into a spectacular one.
The main wild is Santa Claus and the other one is the bell. What makes the Santa Claus wild special is that a combination of them offers cash wins during the main game. But, it truly shines during the free spins feature if it acts as an expanding wild, that’s if you’ve picked the right combination. The wilds substitute all the other symbols to complete a winning combination except the scatter (basket full of toys).
The scatter symbol is the basket of toys, 3 or more of them on an active payline triggers the free spins feature, and boy is it an interesting one! Initially the free spins starts off with 10 free spins, a new screen opens up which gives you 5 picks. To be honest this game makes me feel like a kid during Christmas time again and here’s why. There’s a couple of highlighted gifts-you must pick one per screen, the gifts you’ve picked determines the amount of multipliers and wild reels you’ll receive. That said, the more scatters that appear on the reels the more picks you get to choose from, therefore 5 scatters equals 5 picks.
It works like this. For 3 scatters you’ll get 3 picks, 4 gives you 4 picks and 5 gives you 5 picks. Depending on the amount of scatters you hit you can get 2 wild reels, 2 extra wilds, extra free spins and 4x multiplier wins. Let’s assume you manage 1x and 2x multipliers, the total multiplier you can benefit from is 4x!
