Another positive of the festive season is that it means plenty of new Christmas-themed slots hitting online casinos. Plus, you can also dig out some older titles released for Christmas times gone by. There’s certainly enough of them, that’s for sure! However, if you do not know which are the best to play and cannot be bothered checking them all out, why not just stick to our top 5 Christmas-themed video slots?
Sleighin' it (Betsoft)
Recently released, Sleighin' it from Betsoft is a video slot we’re struggling to put down. Aside from Betsoft doing Betsoft things with the stunning graphics and animations on display, this slot will appeal because of having four progressive jackpots. On any given spin you can win one of the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega jackpots.
Also, this 5-reel, 30-payline video slot offers stacked mystery symbols, wild reels and the choice of 4 different free spins rounds. In the latter, the wild reels will even wander from each spin to the next!
- Reels: 5x4 with 30-Paylines
- RTP & Variance: 96.19% with ‘High Variance’
- Max Win: 568x
Aloha Christmas (NetEnt)
Launched in 2020 by NetEnt, Aloha! Christmas remains one of our favourite Christmas slots. Why? Well, one of the reasons is it eliminates one thing many of us do not like about Christmas, the cold. Instead, the action takes place in the tropical climate of Hawaii. Another reason we love this exotic title is the fact it uses the Cluster Pays mechanic and is chock full of bonus features.
You win when forming clusters of symbols rather than worrying about paylines. During the base game, mystery or wild symbols can improve your chances of earning payouts. However, it is the free spins you will want to trigger. You get two choices here, 10 free spins with 2x, 3x, or 4x wild multipliers, or 6 spins with 4x, 5x, or 7x wild multipliers.
- Reels: 6x7 with Cluster Pays
- RTP & Variance: 96% with ‘Medium Variance’
- Max Win: 1,750x
Santa’s Fortune (Wizard Games)
Santa’s Fortune is another brand-new slot released just in time for Christmas this year. Could it deliver the gift you are hoping for? Before we start, we have to comment on the superb production values the team at Wizard has delivered with this title. It looks fantastic on all devices.
As you spin the reels, if you land a Sleigh symbol on a spin that also produces Gift Box prize symbols, you collect all of those gifts for a nice payout. On some occasions, one of those gifts will trigger the Collect Pots feature. You keep picking gifts until you find three of one of the Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand jackpot symbols. Win the latter and you take home 1,000x your stake! There is also a free spin round to enjoy on this 25-payline slot from Wizard Games.
- Reels: 5x3 with 25 Paylines
- RTP & Variance: 96.03% with “Low to Medium Variance’
- Max Win: 1,229x
Christmas Gift Rush (Habanero)
If you prefer your festive slots to offer simple gameplay, then Habanero's Christmas Gift Rush is the one for you. This is themed on that mad rush that most of us have to endure each year as we go looking for the perfect Christmas gifts for our friends and family. It has just 3 reels, 3 rows, and 3 paylines but a worthy top payout of 2,675x your stake.
The ultimate aim is to trigger the slot’s ‘Nudge’ feature that will deliver you at least 30x your stake. You activate this feature whenever you land a winning combination on the central line. The first nudge will open the payline above and the second the one below. The only other bonus feature is a wild symbol, but hey, we did say that this is a title for those of you that like easy-to-play slots!
- Reels: 3x3 with 3 Paylines
- RTP & Variance: 96.66% with ‘High Variance’
- Max Win: 2,675x
Christmas Big Bass Bonanza (Reel Kingdom/Pragmatic Play)
The Big Bass series is one of Pragmatic Play’s most popular, so it is understandable that they would use it to cash in at Christmas time. This time it is Santa that goes fishing hoping to reel in some tasty catch.
As in previous titles, the idea is to trigger (or purchase) the free spins feature. You can win up to 20 in total and during those spins, whenever you land a Wild symbol and Fish ‘Money’ symbols on the same spin, the wild will collect catch those fish and collect their values for you. As for the aesthetics, this slot features the high quality you would expect from Pragmatic Play.
- Reels: 5x3 with 10 Paylines
- RTP & Variance: 95.67% with ‘Medium to High Variance’
- Max Win: 2,100x
An Extra Bonus Christmas Theme Slot
The 9 Coins™ Xmas Edition. The slot comes with the Cash InfinityTM feature and Hold The Jackpot respins. It is effectively the original 9 Coins™ gameplay with a Christmas-themed backdrop.
There’s no need for symbol combinations as all wins come from the respins bonus. Land Cash Infinity™ and gold symbols to trigger respins and collect cash prizes as well as jackpot multipliers.
The Mini, Minor and Major jackpot wins are worth 10x, 20x, and 50x, respectively. And if you fill all 9 positions on the reels, you will land the 500x Grand jackpot prize. Why is this slot so special? It has been nominated for the slot of the year award at the next International Gaming Awards in 2023!
