Christmas is a time of year that – ideally – conjures up warm, fuzzy feelings of family, togetherness, blessings, love and childhood. Good food, good times and good people. It is also synonymous with giving presents – and receiving them. Small children fantasise about the presents that Father Christmas will bring them after his trek through the sky on his sled drawn by reindeer graced with the magical power of flight.
Seldom do such fantasies come true, but now they can – with Secrets Of Christmas. This cosy, feel-good video slot by NetEnt transforms the online casino into a warm home that is filled to the brim with presents – presents that are all for you! Spin the reels and turn your fantasy of receiving presents endlessly into reality.
The secret to Secrets of Christmas is that it is not a fancy set-up. On the contrary, it’s as simple as they come – 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines inside a hearth festooned with pine branches and warmly flickering Christmas lights, set against a snowy backdrop beneath a starry sky. Sleigh bells tinkle gently to get you in the Christmas mood ... Play this casino game on mobile or desktop.
Select a betting level from 1 to 10, choose what size coin you want to wager, from 0.01 to 0.50, and set the reels spinning! Secrets of Christmas has a maximum bet of 125.00 and a minimum of 0.25. The Return To Player is 96.72%. If the Christmas spirit really smiles on you, you could collect a maximum pay-out of 350 000 coins!
To prove that they are just as good at making feel-good themes as they are at creating cutting-edge block-blusters like Narcos and Guns ‘N Roses, online casino gaming techno-wizards NetEnt have succeeded in creating a Christmas environment that would bring a smile to Norman Rockwell. The base game is as Christmassy as can be.
The lower-value symbols are the 10, J, Q, K and A in the form of pine wreaths, while the higher-value symbols are such homely images as a stocking filled with candy canes, milk and cookies “For Santa”, a gingerbread house, a radiant candle and a golden bell tied with a bow. Ring 5 of those bells for 1250x your wager! The Wild is a traditional bearded Santa adjusting his glasses to see who’s naughty and who’s nice, and the Scatter is a basket full of toys and candy. Wild Santa substitutes for all other symbols barring the Scatter. Land 3 or more Scatters to activate 10 Free Spins.
To supercharge the Christmas spirit, Secrets of Christmas has a lovely mini-game built in. Before you pass from the base game to Free Spins, you get to choose from 20 beautifully rendered candies and plush toys, each concealing a different reward active in Free Spins.
You get to pick as many presents as the number of Scatters that activated the Bonus Round. Free Spins Bonus Features that you can enjoy include additional Free Spins, additional 1x or 2x Multipliers on top of the 1x Free Spins multiplier and additional Candle and Bell Wilds.
Last but not least, Santa Claus may pay you a personal visit in the form of a Wild Reel that expands to cover reel 2, reel 4 or both, until Jingle Bells stops playing, the reels stop spinning and the feature comes to an end. If you think that’s a lot of expanding, remember that Santa Claus has to let out his breath after coming down the chimney!
