They say an online slot isn’t just for Christmas, and they’d be right! Many of you play Christmas slot games all round the year, but even the biggest fans favourites like NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas slot get spun to the max when the festive season comes round. From the sublime to the ridiculous, we count down our top 10 best Christmas slots, including some new releases for this year that have sneaked in down the chimney.
10. Secret Santa Slot
Microgaming released its Secret Santa slot in 2013, but surprisingly without mention of the unwanted gifts obtained from a Secret Santa style office present swap. Instead the snowy backdrop sees us spin the reels as you hunt for the game’s bonus feature, which triggers as randomly as the gift you got from Carl in Accounts last year.
9. Santa’s Wild Ride
In the same vein as Bad Santa, Father Christmas gets to let his hair down in the Santa’s Wild Ride slot from Microgaming. Mrs. Claus has a tattoo and Santa has the word “Randy” painted on his bike, whether that’s the image you want when you play online slots is your call. Though it was released in 2010, Santa’s Wild Ride features 243 Ways to Win and a generous Free Spins feature that awards 25 free spins with a choice of three Wild Modifiers to boost each win during the bonus round.
8. Secrets of Christmas slot
We know that NetEnt loves an intro, and right from the minute you fire this slot up we are transported into a scene so Christmassy it will immediately make you want to quaff a mince pie, even if you don’t like them! With scores of modifiers to boost the free spins feature that include four different kinds of Wild, additional spins and multipliers, NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas slot boasts a decent RTP of 96.72% and has a top jackpot of £/€356,250.
7. Aloha! Christmas slot
Would you like to spend Christmas in Hawaii? Plenty won’t, but just as many would. It would be the Christmas of a lifetime, so the next best thing is NetEnt’s Aloha! Christmas slot. Featuring sun, sea and sand, there’s not much difference from Aloha! Christmas to the original game, released back in 2015. However, NetEnt has pimped up the Aloha! Christmas bonus game by offering two varieties, the Tiki Bar Spins (which sees you bag 10 free spins with multipliers between x2 – x4) and Tiki Bar Max (which awards 6 free spins with multipliers between x4 – x7).
6. Santa King Megaways slot
Like the Aloha! Christmas slot, Santa King Megaways is a reskin of Inspired Gaming’s Reel King Megaways, which is itself a sequel to the studio’s Reel King slot. The reels light up to set Santa spinning at least one Santa King mini reel, which awards cash prizes between x1-x10 your bet. When you land three gold symbols you launch the Santa King trail, with your ultimate aim to bag up to 25 free spins and an unlimited multiplier that increases x1 with each winning cascade.
5. Jingle Spin slot
Trust NetEnt to come up with a steampunk version of Christmas! For sheer originality and lack of Christmas cheese Jingle Spin makes the list in at number 5. It might not be the best, but it’s got plenty to offer as we chow on another spoon of trifle. The Santa’s Christmas Bauble Wheel takes a bow as the game’s bonus wheel, with elves passing baubles to each other to award Spreading Wilds, Free Spins, Cash Prizes and Surprises. It’s got all the Christmas bases covered!
4. Foxin Wins: A Very Foxin Christmas slot
Okay, so this is a reskin of a reskin. But adorable fox pups bouncing Wildly to complete payline wins? What’s not to love? Following the success of the Foxin Wins and Foxin Wins 2 slots, NextGen brought out the Christmas version that is exactly the same as the original, minus a few bits of tinsel and a scattering of Santa hats. But with 40 paylines, two randomly triggered bonuses and a free spins feature in which all wins are doubled, who gives a fox if this game is any different from the original?
3. Taco Brothers Save Christmas slot
The Taco Brothers could save anything if they put their minds to it. Easter, Christmas, Diwali, you name it! These three brothers have the cheek and bonus flair to deliver all kinds of gifts. It may be a blatant reskin of the Taco Brothers slot, but we love it justb the same. What kind of a Christmas would it be without repeats, anyway?
2. Christmas Megaways slot
If 2020 has been anything, it has been the year of Megaways. Every slot studio worth its salt has released a Megaways game, and Iron Dog Studio gazumps the lot with its perfectly titled Christmas Megaways slot that launched in December 2020. Using the Megaways engine’s trademark payline system that can reach up to 117,649, Christmas Megaways sees you collect stars with every winning cascade as you bid to launch the game’s Free Spins feature.
1. Ho Ho Tower slot
It may be a reskin of ELK’s own Hong Kong Tower, but in the true spirit of Christmas it brings some of ELK’s most famous slots heroes together for a celebration of all things ELK. Wild Toro, Electric Sam, Pepe off of the Taco Brothers. They are all here and, with 99 paylines and a jackpot of x3,106 your stake, Ho Ho Tower is one slot you can enjoy every single Christmas, and beyond.
