Secret Santa Online Slot Games
Secret Santa is a festive Christmas-themed slot from leading casino software developer Microgaming. This game features 5 reels and 1024 ways to win in place of the standard slot game reels, which forms winning combinations from any matching symbols that appear on adjacent reels.
The game offers 7 different bonus rounds that are triggered at random during the base game, each offering extra wilds, free spins, scatter pays and Rolling Reels, which award consecutive wins, among other bonuses.
Game Aesthetics and Graphics
Secret Santa is set in a cosy scene of a snowy town at dusk. Warm lights glow at the windows, and the scene has a peaceful feel to it. The reels themselves are a deep red colour and on them are a selection of colourful and highly detailed reel symbols, which depict Santa, a few of the toys he will deliver on Christmas Eve and a seasonal Christmas meal.
The ‘Secret Santa’ game logo is the game’s wild symbol. This symbol is the highest paying icon in the game, and can substitute all symbols except for the scatter. During the bonus games, the wild may appear as a standard wild, or as Dashing Wilds which will land in random positions in groups of 4.
The Yule log is Secret Santa’s scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of these scatters on the reels will result in a scatter payout.
Secret Santa Bonus Features
Secret Santa stands out thanks to the addition of 7 unique bonus features in the game. Secret Santa himself will appear randomly on the screen to award players one of these bonuses during the base game.
The first bonus is the Wild Reels feature. This feature can turn up to 3 reels in the game completely wild to create more winning combinations.
The second feature is the Wild Boost, which will turn any game symbol wild.
There is a Mystery Multiplier feature, which will award players win multipliers of anywhere between 5x and 10x the win.
Four Dashing Wilds may appear as another feature, dropping onto the reels in various random positions.
Rolling Reels will award consecutive wins when triggered, and these wins will increase the multiplier by up to 12x.
There is a Scatter Spree feature, in which all scatter symbols act as wilds and pay scattered anywhere on the reels. All wins during this feature are also multiplied by the total bet.
Free Spins Feature
The seventh bonus feature is a standard Secret Santa free spins feature, which awards players 5 free spins and a 3x multiplier to triple all their wins during the free spins.
5 of a Kind Feature
Players can also spin in 3 or more Yule log scatter symbols during the base game to trigger the 5 of a Kind bonus game. During this game, players must land 5 of the same symbol across all 5 slot game reels, at which point all of the symbols involved will transform into another symbol to create an additional 5 of a Kind win. Each 5 of a Kind combination will award players a cash prize.
