Santa Paws Slot

'Tis the season to be spinning this festive themed slot machine. This 5-reel, 20 payline slot machine takes its players on a comical caper through a winter wonderland where polar creatures appear to have evolved a new asset – the ability to celebrate Christmas.

OK, so it's a little bit on the cheesy side and the game itself is a little bit dated - but then again, so was that Christmas song by Wham! And everyone knows that is still a brilliant tune. As such, the overall aesthetic of Santa Paws is a little bit on the basic side when compared to some of the latest offerings from the game's provider, Microgaming. But before you let that deter you, just bear in mind that there are free spins up for grabs with a 7x multiplier. Plus, the highest standard jackpot will multiply your line bets by 4,000.

Christmas Overload

Every spin of this game is filled with the sights and sounds of Christmas, which may well put many a punter off! The fact is that this festive themed slot is overdone. The main reason for this is down to the visual and sonic aspect of the game.

To begin with, every spin is accompanied by a torrent of tintinnabulation as sleigh bells ring while the reels go round. And if you are a bit of a Grinch, then you want to stay well clear on the game's bonus round, which features an adorably cute rendition of “It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas”.

As for the game symbols, there are lots of cutesy polar critters adorned with the various paraphernalia of the season. The least valuable of these is a white rabbit decorating a Christmas tree, then an owl with a present and a sea lion with two presents. Next in line is a snow wolf mailman, which will deliver a decent payout by multiplying the bets on the winning line by 750x.

Some More Wild Characters

Christmas is a time for giving, right? Well, this slot machine gives its spinners two wild symbols, both of which will replace other symbols (except for the penguin scatter) in order to complete winning combinations. The first of these wild symbols is Rudolf. No, not that Rudolf. The red-nosed hero of this game is in fact an orca whale with a few antlers and a red nose stuck on its head. We doubt we can fly, but he will reward you up to 1,000x the line bet if 5 appear. The second wild is depicted by Santa Paws himself – a lovely big polar bear wearing a Santa hat. What's in Santa Paws' bag? Up to 4,000x the line bet!

The Slot That Keeps On Giving

Santa Paws keeps on giving with a round of free spins. This is triggered by the penguin scatter symbol, which is depicted by a penguin holding a present – and he certainly has a gift for you spinners. That is because 12 free spins will begin automatically if you find 3 or more of these penguins anywhere on the reels.

That may not sound like the most generous bounteous quantity of free spins, but keep in mind that everything you win during the free spins will be multiplied by 7.

'Tis The Season To Be Risky

Players can get more out of this game with a gamble feature. This side game is available to play after any winning spin of the reels. All players have to do is click the “Gamble” button. This will take spinners to a new game screen when a Santa Paws playing card will be shown face down in the middle. If you guess the card's colour correctly then you will double the amount of the qualifying spin. If you guess the card's suit correctly then you will quadruple the amount from the winning spin.

A Game For One Season

Santa Paws is a novelty festive themed slot machine which has a limited appeal. Let's face it, not everyone likes to be bombarded with Christmas, even in December let alone in the middle of July! Plus, the whole aesthetic of the game is quite over the top, making the game a little bit garish to behold. But, nonetheless, there are bound to be some spinners out there who will revel at the chance to play this seasonal slot machine.

Those players who can handle the Christmas overload will be able to enjoy a standard range of free spin opportunities as well as a gamble feature. The only downside is that there is no unique bonus game to take part in.
