Who says you need to wait for a specific time of year to be filled with the festive spirit? Santa Surprise by software developer Playtech will provide you with everything necessary to feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. This online slot game comes equipped with everything from candy canes and decorated evergreens to mistletoe and candles. It doesn’t hurt that the visuals are of pretty high quality too, not to mention that you will get to enjoy some great animated features throughout gameplay. The symbols that appear in this title include the lower value playing card icons from A to 10, and the higher paying ones feature a wrapped present, a stocking, and a gold bell. Santa is here too, kids, but he has a bit more of a special role.

This brings us to the game’s layout which boasts 5 reels and 3 rows, and you will have a total of 20 paylines to bet on. But if you choose to, you can decrease their number to a lesser one; as a matter of fact, players have the option to only bet on a single active payline. This makes for a very wide betting range that starts at a minimum bet of only 1p per spin. The maximum amount you will be able to wager on these reels soars up to an eye watering £10,000 per single spin.

Special Features

Santa Surprise also comes with its very own Gamble Feature. This is always a nice touch to help spruce up your gaming experience. In this case, when gambling your prize you will simply need to guess the color of the next card.

Wild

As we mentioned, Santa is also present on these reels and he is the game’s Wild symbol. As such, Santa can replace any of the other symbols with the exception of the Scatter and Bonus icons, and in doing so, he can help complete winning combinations for more prizes.

On top of all that, the Wild is also the symbol that offers the highest payouts in this game, and since it can appear anywhere on the reels you can land up to 5 Santas on an active payline for a staggering 10,000 coin reward.

Christmas Gift Bonus

Look out for the Bonus symbol landing anywhere on the screen during gameplay. If you manage to land at least 3 of these symbols at the same time during a spin, you will trigger the Christmas Gift Bonus. If this happens you will enter a new screen with a bunch of gifts under the Xmas tree. It’s a lovely setting, with snow falling outside the window and the fire peacefully flickering in the fireplace. You will now have to select as many gifts as you landed Bonus symbols to trigger the feature. Hence, 3, 4 or 5 Bonus icons will give you 3, 4 or 5 picks, respectively. The gifts will only reveal cash prizes.

Freespins

Much like the other two special symbols in Santa Surprise, the Scatter can also land pretty much anywhere on the five reels, and like with the previous bonus you will require at least 3 Scatters in order to trigger the Freespins Feature. As a result, you will receive a total of 10 freespins with all wins being subject to a 3x multiplier.

Furthermore, you can retrigger this feature indefinitely and keep getting more free spins. To retrigger it, you will again have to land at least 3 Scatters during the same spin, and this will give you another 10 extra freespins.
