Play’n GO, slot specialist, is the first developer to bite into the festive slots that are Christmas-themed slot games. Their latest release is called Xmas Magic and it’s every moment as ho-ho-ho infused as you’d like.
As Christmas season now officially upon us, we will see how this game will stack up against the rest with same topic, that are forced to come flooding in any time soon.
Set against a brick house with snow-capped mountains in the distance, symbols include low value A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as snow globes, cups of hot chocolate, candy canes, Christmas stockings and mistletoe.
The latter is the most rewarding symbol giving you 0.2, 0.8, 4 or 20 times your stake for 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline – it also appears stacked 4-high. The golden gift box is the wild symbol which appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (not reel 1). As well as replaces all symbols bar the scatter, it pays as the highest value symbol when part of a win.
Xmax Magic is a 5-reel slot with 50 variable paylines which are numbered and always activated in numerical order. The game contains a wild symbol (Golden Gift Box) which inly appears on reels 2 to 5.
Wild symbol will substitute for any other symbol except the scatter (Santa Claus).
Three of these (Clauses) that appear on first three reels (anywhere on them) will trigger the prize that is four times the total bet and give a sequence of 10 extra spins.
On each of these spins, two new wild symbols will be added to reels 2-5. The wild symbols that were newly added will be filled onto those that came before, making the stack of wilds bigger on each reel. This raises the chances of creating big win combos.
Another ten extra spins can be retriggered during any extra spins round, which provides a successive run of 20 spins with stacks of wilds growing. This makes for a possible win of 1,000,000 coins.
High paying symbol, Mistletoe appears as four-symbol high stack in the base game and during extra spins. Triggering bonus spins will choose an additional high-paying symbol at random to appear on stacks of four.
After every win, players will be able to double their winnings by guessing the correct color or suit of a hidden card during the base game. This feature can be played up to five times in a row, resulting potentially in a total prize of 2500 coins.
The betting range in this very high volatility Play’n GO game is 0.01 to 100. Default RTP is 96.50%. it’s not as sharp as other Play ‘N Go online slots but it does the job perfectly. It’s all about the Free Spins feature as the extra wilds and extra stacked symbol will result in better payouts.
High variance as always from Play ‘N Go, filling the reels with the high value mistletoe symbol and/or wilds will result in a 1,000 times stake payout at Play N Go casino websites.
