Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to play with Spin Palace all the way – hey! Alright, not my best work, but writing jingles is not my bag, baby. Another year has come and gone and if you’re getting on just a bit, then I’m sure that you’re under the collective impression that 2018 has been the fastest year to date. How fast has this one gone by? No, really, how fast? We had another Wimbledon, that’s always fun. Russia hosted the FIFA World Cup, Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle (eyes rolling), while the Castro era came to end when Raul Castro stepped aside and allowed Miguel Diaz-Canel to ascend. Out in Colorado, a man survived both a shark and a bear attack! Now if that isn’t lucky, then I don’t know what is! We can’t speak about luck without speaking about Spin Palace Casino, the online entertainment hub that has also seen the back of another year and now along with all of you, enters into the festive season. With Christmas just around the corner, we thought it is best to get the holiday cheer started by letting you know about their fantastic range of Christmas-themed online slot games.
Santa’s Wild Ride
Let’s step back to 2010, the year in which this online video slot game was released. The name does say it all as Microgaming gives players a really delectable taste of the holiday season with old St Nick upping the ante like you won’t believe it! Santa rocks what looks to be a Harley while the rest of the reels are adorned in treats, not necessarily ones affiliated with Christmas itself, but certainly with this time of the year. Across 5 reels you’ll see lusty pints of lager, mince pies, full-house sandwiches, cookies, dessert, elves – you name it. Santa meets fun and winning possibilities in a slots game that offers 243 ways to win, up to 25 free spins coupled with a choice of three wild features and a free gift bonus meant only for reels 2 and 4. All in all this slots game can rain down a maximum total of 190 000 coins.
Deck the Halls
With this video slot game, Microgaming decided to go more traditional and in the same breath, more old school too. Santa’s at it in this one, but the theme is a lot more warm and homely, and the maximum take-home if you should ever be so lucky is 2 400 000 coins! Expect to see warm fire places, baubles, gifts under a tree, and Santa responding to request letters. Things are kept straightforward but exciting through free spins with multiplied outcomes, wild symbols and stacked symbols in the form of Santa himself.
If you’re really looking for sheer simplicity with high value potential returns, then look no further than this one. Released way back in 2006, Jingle Bells is proper old school gaming and this is because it is a full-on three reel slot machine. Put another way, it’s a classic slot machine. Three reels and five paylines is all you’ve got at your disposal, yet the possible remuneration is quite something. Classic slot machine symbols adorn the reels so expect to see your typical BAR’s, 7s and cherries. The Christmas theme is made clear by way of the jingle bells symbol, which depending on the paylines they fulfil, can deliver big payouts going from 1 000 coins all the way to 6 000 coins. Now imagine you’re betting max at $5…
The North Pole comes into full swing in Santa Paws, a playful slot machine with a pleasant theme and some fantastic Microgaming staples. This one is for those video slot purists and the game itself, while quite old, is the equivalent of a fine wine. A polar bear, a penguin, a seal, a rabbit, a killer whale and an owl all account for the cute characters you’ll find on this game’s 5 reels and 20 paylines. From a feature perspective, wins are begotten through wilds, scatters, free spins and a gamble feature. Up to 12 free spins with a 7x multiplier could lead you to prosperity and thanks to two unique wilds, the possibility for even more. I’m a big fan of the gamble feature, a gaming attribute seen less these days and thus requiring that you play older games to utilise it. The good news is that Santa Paws has it all!
This one carries some seriously big potential in the form of hidden talent. From the outside, Secret Santa looks like yet another slots game paying homage to the season to be jolly, but don’t be fooled would-be players, chip away at this one and you could find yourself with a smile wide enough to crack a mirror. Firstly, this online slot machine offers 1024 possible combinations, a massive scale-up of Microgaming’s original 243 ways concept. What I really like about this game is the way its bonus features work; there’s no aligning or collecting of certain symbols or anything along those lines – see what I did there? Your ability to capitalise on the bonus is completely and utterly random and this is because it can occur at any point. Once you’re through though, you’ve got 7 mystery features to benefit from, and this is where the game really showcase its inventive qualities. Dashing Wilds, Scatter Sprees, Rolling Reels and other enticing names will pop up, each one geared towards hopefully giving you a better payday.
And there you have it boys and girls, the Spin Palace Online Casino list of Christmas-themed online video slot games, ready to add more cheer to your year!
