Secrets of Christmas Slot Review

It has been quite some time since we have seen a Net Entertainment developed Christmas themed slot. Coming your way this festive season is the Scandinavian online casino software providers Secrets of Christmas slot.

There are many Christmas themed slots out there, but so few of them have managed to capture the essence of Christmas quite like this new title. Sacks of toys, snow-laden reels, high playing cards decorated as garlands, gingerbread houses, and bells all make up the predictable imagery in this new slot.

Although we’ve seen them all before; Net Entertainment has done a stellar job of making these symbols appear more Christmassy than we’re used to. One could argue that what NetEnt have developed here could go on to be the definitive Christmas themed slot.

Developers

NetEnt is one of the three leading and biggest software developers in the online slot world. Whilst many of their slots contain innovative features, and original themes, this new one is pretty basic in terms of what it offers. What it does do, though, is take a much loved (albeit overproduced) theme and take in a NetEnt direction.

Net Entertainment has learned that music goes a long way in a slot, and taking a leaf out of their Motörhead, Jimi Hendrix, and Guns ‘N’ Roses slot books, they have chosen to incorporate many famous Christmas ditties into this new game.

How to play

As is often the case with Net Entertainment developed games, Secrets of Christmas will not permit players to adjust the paylines in the game. Instead, these are fixed at a total of 25 across the slot’s 5 reels.

You will be able to alter your coin values, and the number of coins you bet per line. At its cheapest, you are looking and spending around $0.25 per spin on this Christmas themed slot, which is perfect for those players already burdened with high expenses at that special time of the year.

Features

Wild symbols: You can’t have Christmas without Santa, and you can’t have a video slot without wilds. The two have come together here, replacing all other standard paying symbols in the slot when they appear on the reels.

Scatter symbols: Scatter symbols appear as a cluster of toys. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been naughty or nice. You will still get your Christmas presents if you land just 3 of these symbols on the reels. Those treats include both scattered wins and a free spins feature.

Bonus round: After the bag of toys appears on the screen, players will be given a choice of picking various presents from a typical living room.

The number of picks you get depends on the number of scatters you found to trigger the bonus. Each object picked will offer either additional free spins, up to two entirely wild reels, multipliers, or up to two extra wild symbols.

Free spins: Once players have made their decision, the free spins bonus begins. Players will start off with 10 free spins by default (unless they managed to win additional free games). From there on out, the free spins are played out with any bonus features you managed to acquire in the previous bonus round.

Maximum pay-outs

It is not known just how much you will able to win playing the Secrets of Christmas slot. We’ve been told that players can expect to be able to bag wins worth as much as 1,425x their total bet. That would not be outside the realms of possibility for any Net Entertainment developed slot.

It is at the high-end up of the payout range they usually offer, which makes it rather fitting at that special time of the year when you could do with big wins the most.

Summary

As we’ve said, there are countless Christmas themed slots out there on the net. Some aren’t worth your time, and others are so predictable and feature recycled graphics and imagery that they are dull. You won’t have to worry about any of that with the Secrets of Christmas slot.

Yes, the imagery is hardly original, but NetEnt has done a stellar job bringing this one to life via their top notch graphics.

Secrets of Christmas is more traditional, more realistic, and more authentic than most other Christmas slots, which might just give it the edge this festive season, and for many more Christmases to come. As for the release date, we couldn’t really say.

One would imagine that the developers want to give it a good run before that special day, so we’d expect it to find its way to top NetEnt casinos just as soon as Halloween is dead and buried, no pun intended.
