Xmas Magic Slot Review – Play’n Go

We have one of the first Christmas games for 2019. Festive releases are always created by providers, typically one per year for each most popular celebration. Such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Halloween has not even hit yet and Christmas slots are being revealed. Play’n Go has announced its last game releases for 2019, including ‘Xmas Magic’, the providers festive game for 2019. This game is set to release 21st November.

Xmas Magic is meant to be a festive game from the provider. However visually this is not shown. I was expecting something more colourful and more festive. However, instead we have dull colours and the only thing festive is premium symbols. This is a huge disappointment, the artwork could have easily been changed. Visually very disappointing, but at least it is visibly clear.

This game has a setup of 5 reels by 4 rows, this includes 1-50 pay lines. Xmax Magic is medium variance due to max win capped at 4,000x and set RTP of 96.50%. You can bet from £0.01 – £100.

Xmas Magic Slot Review Paytable & Symbols

This game has 13 symbols in total, this includes 6 low paying symbols. These are represented by 9,10, J, Q, K And A. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by snow globes, hot chocolate, candy canes, Christmas stockings and holly. There is also a present wild and Santa scatter.

Xmas Magic Slot Review Features

Central to this game is the free spins feature, this is activated when you land 3 Santa scatters on any reels. This will award 10 free spins, during spins two wilds are added to reels 2-5. You can also retrigger during spins by landing 3 more scatters. This bonus concept has actually already been done in a previous game by the provider. Which is disappointing as it is just nothing new again.


Overall, this game is so disappointing for a Christmas game. Visually is dull and basic. There are no base game features so you just play in hope of the free spins feature. The free spins feature has good potential, but the max win is capped at 4,000x. I wish play’n go did more with this idea.
