With winter festivities already in mind, Red Tiger have decided to remake one of their Christmas slots from late 2015, welcome to Jingle Bells Power Reels. If you are one of those people who are starting to put up decorations in November, then you will surely be pleased to see all the providers releasing these Christmas slots. Power Reels is nothing new, if a slot is not remade with Megaways, it’s most likely going to be rebranded with Power Reels, a good example would be the Zeus Lightning Power Reels.
Even if you are more like Grinch and you despise the Christmas spirit, you still should find Jingle Bells Power Reels rewarding and fun. The best gifts under the tree are the Jingle Bells Power Reels bonus features, and boy oh boy, we have a lot of them. Be sure to check your stockings as you may find wins reaching up to 6,000x hidden inside. They say that Christmas is about giving not receiving, but let’s hope that we are the ones that receive gifts, not the other way around.

Gameplay and Payouts
Besides the obvious layout change, one of the biggest differences you notice is the peaceful and discreet music that plays lowly in the background. On the original Jingle Bells, it was a dead silence, which doesn’t really put you in a festive mood, but on Jingle Bells Power Reels we get this wonderful Christmas Evening ambience, with the fire crackling in the background. When you start spinning the reels, the music gets more joyful. It’s the same room as before, only now the graphical quality has been improved. You can see the glittering Christmas tree on your right and the warm fireplace on the left. Red Tiger have pretty much nailed the presentation for Jingle Bells Power Reels.
Christmas is visually one of the busiest holidays of the year, so decorations are a big part of it all. In this case, symbols are going to be our game layout decorations. With big game layouts, providers tend to slack off with the quality of the symbols. This is not the case with Jingle Bells Power Reels as even low symbols of 10-A are neatly illustrated as gift wrappings. On the top of the symbol list, we will find a candy cane, stocking, ball ornaments, golden star and bells. For the top symbol, max payout is 600x, this is for a combination of 8 symbols of the same sort.
It’s great when a game is visually attractive, but at the end of the day, we are still looking at a video slot, that comes with a complicated math model and payouts. As always, we like to do a little comparison between the original version and the new Jingle Bells Power Reels. The addition of Power Reels has greatly extended the playing field, that should be clear by now, but with these changes also the number of paylines has doubled to 40. Perhaps the greatest change this year is the max payout, which has increased 7.5 times. That seems huge, but we have to remember that the previous payout was a measly 800x. Santa may be generous, but he doesn’t run a charity, so the Jingle Bells Power Reels RTP is a bit below the average, being 95.78%. RTP can also vary, depending on the casino you play in.
Same way as on Rainbow Jackpots, the Santa Claus can randomly decide to walk across your reels, granting you one of the available bonus features. In total there are four of these magical features on Jingle Bells Power Reels. The feature that we stumbled upon the most was the Christmas Tree Multiplier. Santa will grant you a random multiplier which will be applied to your next win, so even if you get 5 empty spins, the multiplier won’t disappear.
Next up we have the Raining Wilds. On this Jingle Bells Power Reels feature, Santa tosses in the air many Christmas presents, which are the wild symbols. With a bunch of wilds on the screen, a win is guaranteed. What’s better than Wilds? Mega Wilds, of course. Santa can grant a huge 5x6 wild symbol that can land anywhere on the reels. Last but not least, Santa can spread his magic, creating the Winning Reels. All game reels will get a golden glow and only high paying symbols will appear for the next spin.
Jingle Bells Power Reels is a gift that keeps on giving, as we are not done with bonus features just yet. Just like you can’t have a Christmas without a Christmas Roast, you can’t have a slot without Free Spins. Three or more Free Spins symbol will do the trick in acquiring these spins into your possession. Amount of Free Spins varies on the number of scatter you get, so the reward can be between 8-20 spins. Generally, this Jingle Bells Power Reels bonus works the same way as the main game, the only difference is the highly increased bonus feature frequency.
A remade version shouldn’t make you wonder which game was better, the original or new, otherwise, there is no point in creating these remakes. For Jingle Bells Power Reels it’s simple, the slot is better in pretty much every aspect. Graphics have been an improvement, the payouts have been pumped up and just generally the game feels more polished, more like an actual Christmas game. With the celebration slowly approaching, we couldn’t ask for a better start, than Jingle Bells Power Reels.
