Xmas magic

Story of the game

It is Christmas time and you know what that means right? Santa is about to do his rounds and he is ready to shower all gamers with gifts as he goes on his merry journey. Set in an unknown city with Christmas lights and trees in the distance, this game reflects much of what we enjoy about the festive period, from the overall design to the little details.

The key to the game is getting Santa to appear three times on specific reels, to launch the features that can maximise winnings towards the jackpot, which stands at a cool 4,000 times your stake and is the most you can win in this enjoyable game.

Xmas Magic slot details

There are plenty of Christmas themed slot games on the go in the casino world these days. This one comes from the team at Play N Go and has five reels which make up a huge 50 pay-lines. That immediately offers some volatility to the action, but in return for that, the game comes with an RTP rating of 96.5%, which is more than acceptable in the modern slot game landscape.

Bets can be as little as a penny right up to £100, so there is something in this slot game for the bigger stake players and those who play with a smaller one. The maximum win in the regular game is 20 times your stake, going up to a jackpot of 4,000 times that initial bet.

Are there any special features?

Generally, Play N Go slots are not laced with a huge amount of features, and this game is no different in that regard. In fact, the only feature on offer is the Free Spins feature, which is activated when three Santa symbols appear on the reels, although they must be in reels 2-5. That generates 10 free spins and you can then pick up more free spins during the feature, to open the door to that huge jackpot.

What else should I know?

Although many of the symbols in the game are ones you would expect to find on most slot machines, icons such as 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, there are some funkier ones too. Things like candy canes, stockings, hot chocolate and snow globes offer lower payouts. Mistletoe is a key symbol in the game.

When you have a win of any kind you have the chance to gamble your winnings. You can play double or quits by guessing the colour of the next card to be shown. You can also attempt to quadruple your winnings by picking the correct suit rather than colour. If you are right you double or quadruple your initial win. If you are wrong it is all gone.

Final thoughts

There needs to be something special about a slot game with a Christmas theme to stand out from the rest, and while this one might not have that, what it does have is a delightful design and enjoyable game-play, which shouldn’t be underestimated. The high and low variance of required staking means gamers of all kinds can play. Xmas Magic is worth a go.
