Santa Spins Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Red Tiger are bringing in that typical but cosy Christmas presentation with snow, colourful lights and festive decorations. There are dozens of slots that look like this, but during Christmas, all of these casino games feel equally pleasant. There is not much else to say about the visual effects, the game feels like a Christmas fairy tale with its jolly soundtrack filled with bell chimes and wintery tunes. Santa Spins is a 5 by 4 slot.
On the low spectrum of the paytable, we have the snow-covered royals of 10, J, Q, K and A. With increased values symbols that follow are a wreath, bells, reindeer and a lady Claus, who probably keeps Santa warm on wintery nights. Santa himself has assumed the position of the Wild symbol. Santa Spins includes 20 paylines.
Santa Spins is a medium volatility slot. This means a couple of things if we look at some of the stats of the game. First of all, wins are pretty easy to score, but the ceiling of potential is quite low. When we say low, we actually mean it, as the best single win you can score on Santa Spins is just around 1,000x. Give me a 1,000x win and I will be happy, you might say, and you wouldn’t be wrong, but just know that there is not much additional juice you can squeeze out of this game. Red Tiger have set the default RTP at 95.73%. The standard bet range for the Santa Spins slot is 0.10 – 100. Red Tiger have also made sure, that the Santa Spins slot is well-optimized for mobile devices.
A Gingerbread house is a special symbol that is good to have. These symbols don’t hold set values, their true worth is only unlocked when a Santa Wild symbol appears alongside them. Santa will throw gifts at these houses, turning them into Wilds. Up to 16 gingerbread houses can appear at once. Santa Wild only appears on the first reel and it always covers it completely.
There are also scatter symbols on the Santa Spins slot. Landing 3, 4 or 5 of these awards 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins. During the bonus, Santa Wild is locked on the first reel, and he remains there for the entirety of the feature. Each additional scatter awards +1 Free Spin.
Christmas is the time of giving, but it seems like a Grinch is working for Red Tiger, as Santa Spins isn’t all that generous. We have no quarrel with the visual design of this slot. Santa Spins is done well, it looks cosy and festive and it even puts a smile on your face. That smile is not there for long, because Santa Spins has some distinctive flaws.
First of all, it’s not a high-potential slot. True, not every slot needs to be highly volatile, but even many low-volatility slots can match this potential. The other drawback is the features. They don’t seem to be that well thought of. Without the presence of Santa Wild, these special gingerbread houses just take up space and create no wins. And once Santa shows up, he is not that big of a deal, especially during Free Spins, where only one reel can be Wild. With all that being said, we still had some fun with the Santa Spins slot, but we do hope that Red Tiger have some additional ideas for Christmas, because this slot alone won’t Christmas merry.
