Piles of Christmas Presents – Sans The Kitsch

Now you can have a tasteful, Merry Xmas all year round, with the emphasis on the ‘x.’ This slot offers multipliers of between x2 – x5, your choice of x3 different Xmas presents and the chance to win up to 12,500 coins on a single spin!

Gameplay

From among the piles of Christmas themed slots, this is definitely one of the best! Firstly, the animations are gorgeous, with snowflakes falling against a winter wonderland filled with fairy-lights, candles and pine trees. Another ‘bonus’ is that the music is a pleasant, happy melody that is NOT a Christmas carol! Actually, this slot game is fairly simple and straightforward.

There are 5 reels, 3 lines and 15 paylines from left or right. There are 7 base symbols that have traditional, gold brocaded Christmas themes, including Santa (which pays out up to 2,500 for x5 symbols), a reindeer that pays up to 1,000 coins, bells and even a mug of mulled wine.

There are four Wild symbols, that are each a different multiplier  of between x2 – x5 and if they land on any payline, they’ll multiply your total win for all winning paylines. Plus, there’s also a double gamble feature, where if you win, you can choose to guess the mystery reindeer card’s colour for double or nothing, or the card’s suite for quadruple your wins.

Special Features

There is only one special bonus feature, which is hard to get to, but is triggered by getting a present bonus symbol on reel 1, 3 and 5. Once triggered, you get to choose which of these mystery presents you want to open. They each have a different prize inside, so a win is guaranteed, but one is set to multiply your wins by up to x150 your bet.

Verdict

The Merry Xmas slot is simple, straightforward and doesn’t play around, so to speak. It’s got a great, tasteful atmosphere and despite the relatively average RTP of 95.8%, the wins are really outstanding, even in the base game: after playing for just ten minutes, for example, we hit a win of 3,700 coins without any assistance from a multiplier or the gamble feature.
