Big Santa Slots
Get ready to embrace your Christmas spirit with this slot from Real Time Gaming! Big Santa features modern animations and seasonal treats to warm your heart faster than a fresh gingerbread cookie straight out of the oven! This slot has five reels and three rows, with 25 holiday-themed pay lines. This isn't the only Christmas-themed slot Real-Time Gaming has under its belt, but it's one of their best without a doubt. So sit by the fireplace, hang your stockings up, and set out a tray of cookies for Santa, because Big Santa is about to roll out some rewards! The modern animation of this slot resembles many seasonal TV specials often played on reruns in the yuletide season, invoking a coziness and familiarity that many players will gravitate towards. There is a jackpot worth up to a generous 50,000x! Plus there are bonus rounds to be activated - like oversized symbols and free spin rounds. Ol Saint Nick knows a thing or two about finances.
This game takes place at the North Pole. On either side of the grid are snow-coated decorated Christmas trees and cozy-looking cottages that only could belong to Santa's magical elves or Santa himself. The wild symbol is Rudolph, whose glowing nose proves to be the most valuable symbol on the board. He pays out 500 coins for a match of five. He is also the substitute symbol and can complete winning combinations for all symbols except for the scatter. Speaking of, the scatter symbol is a giant bag full of goodies straight from Santa himself. This bag of presents will trigger free games if you land three or more in a winning combination.
This game has both major and minor symbols. The major symbols pay out more and are the most valuable none-special symbols, while the minor ones are the less valuable symbols. One of the major symbols is Santa himself, who pays out 250 for a match of five, plus Mrs. Claus who pays out 150, and a cute little elf who pays out 100. The lesser symbols on the board feature a stocking stuffed with goodies, a perfectly wrapped present, a holiday mug full of candy canes, gingerbread cookies, and a set of jingle bells.
The coin range of this particular game is $0.25 up to $6.25 per spin. The pay lines are fixed at 25, and all of the navigation basics and game customization you'll need are located at the bottom of the screen. You can use the lightning bolt symbol to increase or decrease your spin speed. You can also choose a pre-set number of auto spins if you decide to play with that option, the auto spins range anywhere from 5-100. You can even max bet if you feel spontaneous! Plus, it's easy to adjust the volume of both the music and the sound effects. You can even pull up your game history and a detailed payable!
The reindeer wild symbol is the oversized symbol on the reels that range from 2x2 or 3x3 in size. This oversized symbol will cover anywhere from 4 to 9 positions on the board and can show up after a single spin. The free spins are another great feature, and appear when 3, 4, or even 5 gift scatters land. When this occurs, you'll be paid out anywhere from 10 to 20 free spins, depending on how many scatters you land. The free spin feature on this board isn't re-triggerable. Also, each free spin comes with a random win multiplier, ranging anywhere from x2 to x5. With the seasonal cheer sprinkled into every element of the board, plus the solid gameplay, I would say this is a good contender for one of Real Time Gaming's best Christmas-based slots.
