In order to win, you will need to collect enough of the same symbols starting from the leftmost reel. The symbols all pay from 3 onwards. Thus, the list of best symbols includes the bell, star, bauble, stocking and candy cane. The A, K, Q, J and 10 come with lower payouts. The game also features special symbols like Wilds, Scatters and Santa’s gifts. After any win, a chain reaction will be triggered. The symbols that form a win disappear, giving space for new symbols to fall from the top to form a new win.
When Santa appears on the reels, he offers a gift with one of the following features:
- Mega Wilds: Mega Wilds cover an entire reel and have a multiplier of up to 7x. Up to 4 Mega Wilds can appear on the middle reels;
- Festive Reels: All weak symbols are removed from the reels;
- Raining Wilds: Wild symbols are randomly positioned on the reels to create a winning combination;
- Multiplier Boost: it can only be won during free spins and adds a boost of x1 to x5 to winning combinations.
- Free Spins: Santa’s Gift feature can trigger Free Spins.
In addition, you can also activate the bonus of 8 Free Spins with 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels. A win multiplier of up to 15x is applied to all wins during the bonus and, if won, the Multiplier Boost will instantly increase it by 1 to 5x. You will also have the opportunity to trigger more free spins during the bonus.
