Santa Spins Slot Review – Red Tiger Gaming
Another day and another Christmas release by a studio. Late November and December are always filled with the festive spirit for the casino industry. Today’s provider is Red Tiger Gaming, which has stepped up its game with the number of releases each month. There have been some memorable releases, such as ‘Mayhem‘ and ‘Gonzita’s Quest‘. I am intrigued to see what the provider will be releasing next year. When the company was acquired by NetEnt I think most of us was expecting big changes. However, the studio has stuck with its original roots and still producing high quality releases. Today we are learning all about ‘Santa Spins’, which is available to play now!
We have Red Tiger Gaming’s Christmas slot for the year; this one uses a theme centred around Santa Klaus himself. The game background is filled with snow, presents and decorations. There is a house behind the reel set, with a window where you can see a Christmas Tree inside. There are different coloured presents below the reel set and decorations on the reel border. Symbols show off the best detail with snow-covered low-paying Letters. Premiums are different decorations, a Reindeer and Mrs Klaus, I think. Santa Klaus appears as a full reel Wild, which has a fun animation of him ringing a bell for a mechanic. Snow falls & a fun soundtrack play as you spin. If you love Christmas you will love this slot.
Santa Spins has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows; this includes 20 set pay lines. This slot is medium variance with a set RTP of 95.73% and a max win capped at 995x. You can bet from £0.10 to £100.
Santa Spins Symbols & Pay Table
There are 10 symbols; this includes 4 low-paying symbols. These are represented by J, Q, K and A. There are also 4 premium symbols, these are represented by Wreaths, Bells, Reindeer and Mrs Klaus. In addition to these regular symbols is a Gingerbread House and an Xmas Spins Scatter. The highest paying symbol is Mrs Klaus & Wild symbol; 54. Wilds substitute for all paying symbols. Gingerbread House symbols can land on reels 2 to 5. The Santa Wild can appear on reel 1 only.
Santa Spins Features & Mechanics
When a Santa Wild and a Gingerbread House land on the reel set during a base game, spin will trigger the ‘Wild Santa‘ feature, Santa will turn these houses into Wilds, and up to 16 of these houses can land on a spin.
Landing 3 or more Xmas Spins scatter during a base game spin will trigger the ‘Xmas Spins’ feature. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will award 10, 12 or 15 Free Spins. During spins, the Santa Wild is permanently locked on reel 1. Any scatter that lands during these spins will award 1 extra spin.
Overall, I think this slot is perfect as the providers Christmas release for the year and includes all things festive. With a game background filled with the freezing cold winter weather. A big range of Christmas decorations such as Lights, Holly and Bells. The sound track will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit if you are not already. Snow falls as you spin, with fun animations from symbols when part of wins and Santa ringing his bell as part of a mechanic. This slot is filled with vibrant colours and so many small details. Now onto the features and mechanics;
When a Santa Wild and a Gingerbread house lands on the same spin, Santa will turn these houses into Wilds. The focus on this game is the Free Spins feature, the Santa Wild is locked on reel 1 and extra spins can be awarded if scatters land. If you like Wild mechanics you will love this game.
