We might not get snow this Christmas time but that doesn’t matter. We’re not going to be sitting by the window gazing outside. Well, we might be sitting by the window. But we’ll be looking at our computer or tablet (or phone!) as we play the best Christmas slots around. And that’s where we’ll find our snow.
NetEnt gets in on the Christmas spirit first with its Jingle Spin slot, a new release this year that puts an interesting spin on Santa and his elves. Five mischievous elves sit atop the reel case, Santa is on the right of the reels, pulling a lever for his wheel of fortune as we hunt a range of bonus features. When we’re not looking at Santa’s cool goggles, we’re watching baubles bounce from elf to elf before they drop down onto the reels to activate one of the four bonus features. Jingle slots indeed!
A more subtle affair from NetEnt is its Secrets of Christmas slot. We get to gaze through frost covered windows and peek upon card values made from Wreaths, Gingerbread Houses, Cookies and Milk and a range of other festive symbols. As snowflakes fall down the screen, we watch Santa in action as he gives us Free Spins, Multipliers, Wilds and up to two Wild Reels. We have the chance to win up to 1,425 times our stake on each spin, so despite the name of this slot we can’t keep a secret on just how good it is.
Speaking of secrets, Microgaming gives Secret Santa a new meaning. No more is it an awkward office gift exchange, but instead it’s a five reel slot with 1,024 Ways to Win. Set against a snow-covered neighbourhood, we enjoy festive symbols such as Christmas Pudding, Santa and Turkey, but it’s the bonus features which we need to shout about. While all many of us want for Christmas is romance, our heads will no doubt be turned by the amazing bonuses on offer here. Secret Santa gives us the Secret Santa bonus game which is awarded randomly and delivers one of seven bonus features down our chimneys, including Mystery Multipliers, Dashing Wilds, Free Spins and the Scatter Spree. Now you can see how it’s difficult to keep that a secret.
Moving to warmer climates doesn’t have to be difficult this Christmas. In fact, it’s super easy. Just play ELK’s Ho Ho Tower. It’s the Christmas edition of Honk Kong Tower, but this time round we enjoy an additional chance of levelling up on the Wheels of the Sky Bonus feature. Yin and Yang symbols reward us by advancing us to the bonus round and the subtle snow drops against the skyscraper breathe new life into one of ELK’s most popular slots.
Another Christmas edition slot we’re loving is NetEnt’s Flowers – Christmas Edition. The name basically sums it up. We get the same symbols, crazy Flowers of various design, and the same features. Though this time, they’re all covered in snow. What more could we want? We’ve got baubles in the corner and there’s no escaping Christmas. Which is great, because we can enjoy 30 Free Spins, Multipliers and proof that flowers don’t die in the cold weather.
Which Festive Slot Is For You?
We’ve made our selection of favourite Christmas slots and what a choice if we do say so ourselves. Christmas editions of popular slots are always a good choice, but we can’t go wrong with new ways to depict Santa like on NetEnt’s Jingle Spin slot. But which slot has got your stockings in a twist?
