The symbols are important in the game as they help the player land wins. The symbols in the game include Santa Claus as the Wild Symbol, Santa's workshop as the Scatter Symbol and the Christmas tree as the Bonus Symbol. The wild and scatter symbols in the game are the best features about the game. They allow a player to earn bonus credits randomly during the game. Other symbols include a stocking, a gift, a bell, Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten. The video graphics and audio quality of the game is remarkable and is one of the reasons why it is so popular among slots players around the world.
There are 20 paylines in the game. This slot is fit for low limit playes as it accepts bets as low as 0.01 and can increase to 1.25 per payline with a max bet of $250. This slot pays left to right with the highest paying symbol being the Santa Claus.
In order to get the bonus round, the player must land three or more Santa's workshop scatter symbols in one reel spin. The scatter symbols need not be on adjacent reels to activate the bonus round feature. The bonus round feature in the game allows the player to win bonus credits, free of charge. Getting three or more scatter symbols gives the player 10 free spins. The bonus feature triples the amount won if the player lands a winning combination. The paylines that were active when the game shifted into the bonus round feature will remain active during the bonus round as well. The controls of the game disable automatically during the round.
If the player gets three or more Christmas tree scatter symbols anywhere on the reels in consecutive order, it will activate the Christmas Gift Bonus feature round. When activated, the game shifts into a secondary screen where the player will be asked to pick a random Christmas gift from under the tree. Clicking on the gifts gives the player the chance to win cash prizes which add to the player's overall tally. This feature can also be triggered during the free spin round.
The last bonus feature is the Santa Surprise Gamble which can be activated on any win. The player must choose the color of the card and gamble a certain amount. A correct guess doubles the win.
