It’s that most wonderful time of the year when Christmas starts just as Halloween ends and there’s nothing but Mariah Carey on the radio. All I want for Christmas is for it to start in December but sadly that’s never going to happen. Whilst retailers are gearing up to get rid of over priced tat and we’re all happy to pay a couple of quid for a Costa Mince Pie, slot operators have been putting the finishing touches to their festive offerings. We thought we’d highlight a few to help get you in the Christmas spirit. Bah! Humbug!
Scrooge Megaways – Twisted Tale Series
iSoftbet have added to their Twisted Tale Series of slots (which include Brides of Dracula and Moriarty) with their take on Charles Dickens’ Scrooge. As a Megaways slot it boasts 117,649 paylines. On the reels you’ll find our hero, a top hat, a turkey and a ghostly ball and chain. The slot has two main features: Scrooge Cash respins which activates when five scatter symbols appear on the reels and Hauntings of Christmas. The latter is a random feature and this either guarantees all Megaways lines are in play or adds additional scatters to the reels. A Victorian Christmas scene and festive music add to the charm of the game which is actually quite fun to play. It’s currently exclusive to William Hill Vegas.
Jingle Bells – Power Reels
If you want to get into the festive spirit then this 6 row, 8 reel, 40 payline slot from Red Tiger is perfect. It’s part of the Daily Jackpot series so comes with a number of progressives including an hourly prize and a must drop daily one. On the reels are a series of festive symbols including bells, stars, stockings, baubles and candy canes. The slot is feature rich too with free spins, mega wilds, christmas tree multiplier, raining wilds and winning reels all delivered during gameplay by Santa himself. We located this particular festive treat at Betfair Casino but it should be available at all casinos running Red Tiger Jackpots.
Fishin Frenzy The Big Catch
Ok, so what has fishing got to do with Christmas? Regular slots players will already be familiar with the Fishin’ Frenzy series and will do it’s all about the fish and not about Santa. However for some reason William Hill have an exclusive version of the game with snow and holly placed on the symbols to make it festive. There are even some Christmas lights placed in the underwater scene that features in the backdrop. Does it make the game any more interesting to play? No not really! Does it make it festive? Well kind of but it looks and feels a bit gimmicky. Blueprint’s Wish Upon A Jackpot slot has also had a similar festive makeover although that seems limited in terms of just adding Santa Hats to some of the characters.
Snowball Blast isn’t a slot but a 90 ball bingo game with a twist. Pragmatic Play who power the bingo channels of the likes of PlayOJO, New Spins and Heart Bingo launched Bingo Blast in 2020. It’s a speedy version of the 90 ball classic that takes the player right to the heart of the action – the run up to the full house. To do this a whole bunch of quick numbers are drawn so as to cut out the thrill of winning one line and two lines. We’re not big fans of the game as it takes away from bingo more than it adds. Anyway for the festive season the bingo balls are replaced by snowballs and quite frankly it doesn’t improve things.
More Festive Slots
A quick search on any slot for terms like “Christmas” and “Santa” will usually pull up a whole bunch of other festive games to try. For example at New Spins we found Santa King Megaways, Santa v Rudolf, Aloha! Christmas, Christmas Carol Megaways, Christmas Cashpots, Secrets of Christmas, Sugar Train Xmas and many more. The quality of these games vary and as you may gather some are just like Fishin Frenzy The Big Catch and that’s the standard game but with snow or santa hats. Try these games and see which is your favourite whilst we’ll keep an eye for any more new additions.
