Wizzard once sang that they wish it could be Christmas every day; and while we can’t recreate the undercooked turkey dinners and drunken arguments with relatives here at bgo, we can at least go some way to making the band’s dreams come true with this seasonal slot from Playtech.
A five-reel, 20-payline holiday-themed title, Santa’s Surprise provides plenty of festive cheer thanks to its generous 10,000x line bet top payout award, a free spins feature that benefits from a 3x prize multiplier and a special present-picking mini-game where gifts can be unwrapped to reveal big wins.
As the name would suggest, Santa Surprise is a Christmas-themed slot from Playtech that features all the traditional holiday paraphernalia that you would expect on its reels. Santa Claus stars as the slot’s most valuable icon and its substitute wild, with Christmas trees, bells, stockings and presents joining jolly St Nick in a colourful cast of unique icons. The reels themselves are trimmed with snow and sit in front of a seasonal red background, while a number of traditional jingles – no Wizzard, not you – play throughout the game to enhance the holiday atmosphere.
There are two main bonus features in Santa Surprise, with free spins and instant cash prizes both up for grabs. The first is triggered by landing three or more snow-covered house scatter symbols on the reels, with this awarding players a line win of up to 500x and 10 free spins with a 3x prize multiplier.
The second, meanwhile, is activated whenever three or more Christmas tree symbols appear, with this taking players to a new screen where they can open a number of presents to reveal instant wins. The number of picks players receive in this feature will be determined by the number of triggering symbols, with three picks for three trees and so on up to maximum award of five.
Despite its relatively simple premise, Santa Surprise is actually a highly customisable slot that enables players to choose their number of active paylines, their coin size and their coin amount to provide a huge range of betting options. With 1-20 paylines available, coin sizes ranging from £0.01-£2.00 and between 1 and 10 coins on offer, the game can be played from anywhere between £0.01 and £400.00 per spin, while players can also double their prize money up to a maximum of £100,000 in a simple red or black picking game by pressing the gamble button at the end of any winning spin.
A seasonal slot experience that will make you feel like a kid on Christmas morning, Santa Surprise provides the perfect gift to players. The game boasts a generous 10,000x top award and a host of fun-filled bonus features, with the free spins in particular being especially rewarding due to the value of all regular wins being tripled.
