It’s never too late or too early to start warming up for the winter holidays, and software manufacturer Netent has made it easier with the charming and cozy online slot game that is Secrets of Christmas. Regardless of what time of year it is, the enchanting soundtrack will take you back to your childhood late on Christmas Eve, and you’ll find yourself waiting for Santa Claus to arrive with all your gifts. The reels are on the outside of a lovely wooden cottage on its frosted window, and the symbols are all adorable Christmas related images such as stockings, wreaths, gingerbread houses, milk and cookies, etc. Oh, and be sure to notice the magical lights and pine branches running around the reels.
Speaking of the reels, you will find that there are 5 of them on a conventional layout with 3 rows. There is a total of 25 paylines for you to place your bet on and, as is it is most often with Netent slots, you won’t be able to regulate their number. With this in mind, bets start at a moderate 25p per single spin and they reach a maximum wager amount of £12.50 per spin. On top of that, you can look forward to a very lucrative jackpot of 1,250 coins.
In terms of the features, Secrets of Christmas is really quite conventional. For one, the Wild symbol replaces all other icons and helps form winning combinations. Of course, there is one exception to the symbols it can substitute for, and that is the Scatter symbol. In addition, keep in mind that the Wild does not offer any payouts of its own.
The Scatter does not offer any payouts either, although it can also land in any position anywhere on the reels. However, you will need to land at least 3 of these symbols all at the same time during a spin to trigger this game’s main attraction – the Freespins bonus round. As a result, you will receive a total of 10 freespins.
However, before the freespins round can begin there will be a small pick-me game for you to play first. You will find yourself in a room filled with various toys for both boys and girls. There are dolls, trucks, balls, stuffed animals, and more. Now, depending on the number of Scatters that helped trigger the special feature you will get a corresponding number of picks, e.g. 3 Scatters will give you 3 picks, 4 Scatters will ensure you have 4 picks, etc.
Furthermore, the prizes you can reveal are pretty diverse and will affect the freespins bonus round that follows; the possible prizes include up to 10 additional freespins, for example. Another possibility is the appearance of Wild reels on reels 2 and 4 for the duration of all freespins. Then you can also gain up to a 2x multiplier. Last but not least, you can benefit from the one or two highest value symbols also acting as Wilds throughout the feature.
Secrets of Christmas has certainly become something of a player favorite, and it’s not just because of its cozy and sweet theme. Of course, the visuals are of fantastic quality and so are the sound effects, but besides that, players get to benefit from pretty great winning opportunities. Moreover, this title’s medium variance will make for substantial wins.
