5 Games to Get You in the Festive Spirit
Christmas is just around the corner and to help everyone get into the holiday spirit we’ve prepared a list of some of the top Xmas-themed games available to play here at Wildz. Check out our 5 recommendations below to indulge in some festive cheer in the run up to the big day..
Sweet Bonanza Xmas
Pragmatic Play’s fruity hit Sweet Bonanza has been given a Christmas upgrade just in time for the festive season.
Bestowed with lashings of snow, Sweet Bonanza Xmas sees the gamut of features brought back second time round - like Cascading Reels, ‘Pay Anywhere’ system and Free Spins round. Most video slots award payouts for winning combos that follow a left>right direction. With Sweet Bonanza Xmas’s Pay Anywhere system at work, players can bank a win for successful combos running in either direction - effectively doubling your win opportunities with each spin. Random Multipliers are also capable of landing on the reels at any time - awarding up to 100x your stake in any one spin. All in all it makes for some highly entertaining slot action guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Play Sweet Bonanza Xmas today for a full-on Christmas sugar rush, and the chance to line your stocking with wins worth a top 21,100x your bet!
The original, incidentally, forms part of our unique Spinback bonus feature. Should you endure five winless rounds playing Sweet Bonanza, we’ll credit you with a second-chance free spin that you can use on Temple Tumble, a popular jungle-themed video slot powered by Relax Gaming that benefits from the innovative MegaWays™ game engine.
Leading software suite Play’n GO relive the story of Ebenezer Scrooge in Holiday Spirits - a spooky Christmas affair centred around the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Scrooge was famously something of a Christmas killjoy, but the festive sprit is very much alive in this video slot.
The developer have created a cosy scene in which to base the trimmed-down 3 reel, 3 row reel format, featuring a roaring fire and lovingly decorated Christmas tree. Seasonal symbols like candy canes, stockings and wreaths, meanwhile, complete the scene.
Set the reels in motion to feast on a host of bonus features on your way to wins worth a possible 1,600x. At any time, the clock sat atop the reels may come into play, applying multipliers ranging from 2x to 10x to any win. And to sweeten the load further, whenever Ebenezer’s Gift is activated - located next to the clock, it will double the multiplier value up to a max 20x!
Holiday Spirits’ Main Event, however, is the Win Spins feature, triggered whenever identical symbols are stacked during a non-winning spin while an active multiplier is in play. The reels in question are then locked in place before either Christmas ‘Past’, ‘Present’ or ‘Future’ Win Spins kick off - each offering varying levels of Multiplier wins.
Why not try the game at Wildz today to get into the true holiday spirit and load up on some early Christmas cheer!
Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special
Essentially a clone of Quickspin’s immensely popular 2013 release, that pesky wolf returns seven years on to wreak more havoc upon the reels in Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special - dressed in his favourite Christmas jersey! But will he turn out to be naughty or nice in the developer’s festive upgrade?
Framed inside a similar straw house decked out in Christmas lights, expect to find all the impressive features that made the original such a success - like Swooping Reels. Essentially a form of Cascading Reels, the system helps out by clearing symbols belonging to winning arrangements and replacing them with new ones from above to help create new chances to win. Symbols continue to swoop on in until no new wins are formed on the reels.
The beneficial Pigs Turn Wild feature also makes a re-emergence - transforming one of the three little piggies into a Wild symbol upon every second consecutive swoop. Manage a string of six straight swoops to see all three of them turn wild to ramp up your earning potential significantly!
Come and make friends with Quickspin’s big bad wolf at Wildz this Christmas to relive one of the developer’s best ever games - with a healthy sprinkling of Christmas magic.
Christmas just isn’t Christmas without the sighting of a portly Santa Claus in his unmistakable red ensemble. Thankfully, he’s been brought to the reels in all his glory thanks to Push Gaming in the amusingly titled Fat Santa.
The 5x5 reels are backdropped by a gloriously idyllic snowy scene that could be anywhere in central Europe, or North America, for that matter. To the right we find a cosy-looking wooden chalet, while presents sit under a tree to the left and snow-capped mountains peer out from beyond.
The developer have truly gone to town on the theme, which extends to the reels with the use of iconic seasonal symbols comprising the paytable, like baubles, gift boxes, snowmen, elves, reindeer and of course - the main man himself. A gentle audio number hums away in the background, meanwhile.
Unlike many other games themed on the holiday season, the provider have bolted on a Bonus Buy feature for those of you who don’t feel like waiting round for the round to drop organically or fancy getting your hands on some early Xmas gifts.
The bonus round can be triggered instantly by shelling out the equivalent of 80x your wager - which grants you 5 free spins to kick off. Whenever a Christmas Pie symbol lands during the round, Fat Santa lives up to his name by swiftly gobbling up the tasty treat to fill up the Christmas Pie meter. This in turn increases the size of Santa symbols, which can lead to additional free spins.
Fat Santa is lavished with other features that are sure to fire your Xmas spirit.
Make use of Wild symbols, which step in for all regulars to help make winning combos, plus the Santa’s Sleigh Feature. The feature sees Santa’s sleight fly at random points above the reels, leaving behind Christmas Pie symbols in his wake which become Sticky Wilds.
Taco Brothers Saving Christmas
Hallelujah! The Taco Brothers are here - and they’re on a quest to save Christmas!
ELK Studios invite us to overload on some decidedly Mexican Xmas fare in their 2016 offering with a difference. Your mission in Taco Brothers Saving Christmas is simple: help the three brothers, Paso, Pepe and Pico, ward off the evil intentions of Captain Diaz - hellbent on wrecking Christmas and bringing misery to the snow-tipped town of Santa Maria.
Mexico may not be your archetypical setting for the quintessential Christmas slot, but ELK Studios make it work with the help of some sharp cartoonish visuals and interesting gameplay, anchored by a compelling narrative.
Will you prevail in your quest across the classic 5x3 reel-face? With a trove of features like Running Wilds, Free Spins Respins and Wild Escape Bonus and in your armoury, you have every chance! Fire up to the game today for a fresh, exotic take on a classic Christmas theme.
