The Christmas Slot is a festive-themed 5x3 offering developed by Green Jade Games. It has 20 fixed paylines, a 97.01 per cent RTP, and a range of bonus features including free spins, mega symbols, wilds, upgrades and multipliers.

Introduction

Get in the festive spirit with The Christmas Slot from Green Jade Games, a <b>five-reel game</b> falling squarely within the Christmas theme. Despite only launching in 2017, this developer shows its talent in every element of this quality offering.

Below the 5x3 reels is the themed user interface. In the centre is the main spin button, with autospin and turbo spin to the left. To the right are your wager and game information.

There are nine regular symbols - three each of low, mid and high pay ranking. The high-tier symbols comprise a range of wrapped gifts, mid-tier include different toys, and low-tier are baubles. The <b>wild is a sack of gifts</b> and appears in the base game and free spins, substituting all symbols except the scatter and bonus. The <b>scatter is a gift-carrying elf</b>.

Theme, graphics & soundtrack

Christmas is the time of good cheer in honour of the birth of Christ, with traditional tales telling stories of elves wrapping gifts and Santa delivering them down chimneys.

The graphics are softly rendered in the style of a painting or pencil drawing. We are in Santa’s grotto basement, with green garlands, presents at gift-wrapping stations and teddy bears adorning the space. There is subtle animation from the candlelight, while a traditional Christmas jingle accompanies the gameplay. The whole setting has an old-fashioned and warm feel.

The Christmas Slot RTP & volatility

This slot has an excellent <b>97.01 per cent RTP</b>, which is above the industry average. The <b>volatility isn’t stated</b> and it is hard to accurately judge based on our gameplay, as we have seen some variation. It is likely to be medium volatility with the potential for some very generous bonus wins.

How to play The Christmas Slot

1. The <b>paylines are fixed</b>, so just choose your bet using the arrow buttons.

2. Hit spin and let Santa’s elves work their magic.

3. Autospin and turbospin are available if desired.

Bet sizes & paytable wins

The <b>minimum bet is 0.20 coins</b>, up to a <b>200.00 coin maximum wager</b>. This range should suit both casual and high roller players.

All symbols pay for three or more:

- The <b>wild pays 500x for five of a kind</b>.
- The gifts under the tree are the <b>highest base game symbol at 250x for five</b>.
- The mid-tier symbols all pay 100x for five down to 10x for three.

The bonus picker feature makes a top win of up to 500x the wager possible.

The Christmas Slot bonus features

You won’t be short of gifts this year, as this slot had ample bonus features:

- Free spins

Three, four and five scatters trigger <b>10, 20 and 30 free spins</b>. The round is <b>played on different reels</b>, with the <b>bonus feature inactive and mega symbols in play more often</b>. The Christmas wheel will have prizes that are <b>double the value</b>; what’s more, you can <b>retrigger free spins</b> by landing three or more scatters during the round.

- Bonus picker

Land two wrapped present bonus symbols to<b>trigger the bonus picker game</b>. You will be asked to pick from three Christmas gifts; in return, you will receive a prize multiplier <b>worth between 5x and 500x the total bet</b>!

- Santa prize

If your winning combination during the base game doesn't trigger a bonus feature, you might find Santa appear to gift you a <b>random multiplier present</b>. If you are unfortunate enough to get coal, Santa will check his list twice and might change his mind.

- Mega symbols

All the base game symbols can feature as a <b>2x2 mega symbol</b> and can appear on different rows. Mega symbols feature in the base and free spins games, but are more common in the latter. It is also possible for an existing mega symbol to be transformed into a mega wild during the random wilds feature.

- Magic frame

A magic frame glowing with twinkling lights is present during the base and free spins game. This overlay moves to random positions on the reels. If a wild is framed, there are three possible features to be randomly triggered:

1. Random wilds - three to five wilds are randomly added to the reels before the result is calculated.

2. Christmas wheel - you will get one spin of the Christmas wheel before the win is calculated. There are 12 wedges on the wheel with different prizes, including bonus games, multipliers and free spins. If this wheel is triggered during free spins, prizes will be worth double!

3. Symbol upgrade - the lowest value symbols on the reels will be upgraded until a win is triggered; for example, <b>all low-pay symbols will be bumped up to mid-pay symbols</b>.

Our verdict

The aesthetics are gentle and beautifully done, giving players that warm, cosy feeling while playing. This is an old-fashioned-style slot that brings out the special magic of Christmas.

The 97.01 per cent RTP is very appealing and although the volatility isn’t known, we would expect some reasonable returns thanks to the ways you can win and boost prizes. The myriad bonus features keep this yuletide slot feeling festive for longer while still being straightforward to play.
