Now that it’s November and Halloween is well and truly out the way, attention in the mobile casino world has inevitably turned to the next big event in the calendar — Christmas. The festive season is traditionally a very busy time for online and mobile casinos, given that most people are off work with little to do other than hang out with family. So casinos and developers alike are going to be vying for players’ attention running up to the big day.
In the deluge of new slots set for release of the next couple of months, one that really aims to promote Christmas cheer is the upcoming Secrets of Christmas from NetEnt – a developer well accustomed to making player pleasing slots. In this post we look at what to expect from the festive slot – scheduled for release on the 20th November – and whether it’ll be bringing good tidings to all.
Secrets Of Christmas Slot At A Glance
The game will have the typical NetEnt layout of 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines. Coin size and bet levels are adjustable – from 0.01 to 0.50 and from one to 10 respectively – meaning that you can bet anything from 25p all the way up to £125; very much the kind of ‘fits all budgets’ gaming that NetEnt is so well known for. The highest possible payout for the game is a pretty impressive £178,1225, which despite the game not having a progressive jackpot, does make it a potentially life changing slot.
The Christmas tone is set with the background of the slot being a hall fully decked in seasonal finery, with carols music playing throughout. In addition to this, symbols include gingerbread houses, candles, Christmas bells, wreaths, and of course Father Christmas himself. One of the most attractive features of the slot is the relatively high RTP rate of 96.72% coupled with a satisfying medium volatility.
Special And Bonus Features
The main bonus feature in the Secrets of Christmas slot is a extra spins round which is triggered when you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters at the end of a spin. Initially, the round is set at 10 extra spins with a 1x multiplier, but this is where the game puts its own spin on the extra spins concepts.
On entering the extra spins round, you’ll get to go through the ‘Extra Gifts Room.’ In this room you’ll get to choose 3, 4 or 5 gifts (depending on the number of scatters which triggered the round), which will spin to reveal how your extra spins round is going to go down.
The gifts you can receive include 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 more extra spins, 1x or 2x multipliers (which add together with your existing ones), wild reels on reels 2 and/or 4, and additional wild symbols. You can have up to 34 extra spins in total!
