Secret Santa Slot
The Secret Santa slot is a medium-to-high volatility casino game developed by Microgaming slots. Its theme of course relates to the popular gift-exchange ritual which pervades workplaces and households during the run-up to Christmas as people have to buy a present for someone in secret, as Santa. Clever name really.
Secret Santa Slot Background
For those of you unfamiliar with the origins of this annual holiday, Christmas was a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. People would often go to a church and sing songs before going home. Nowadays though, many of us get mindlessly drunk, put dead trees in our living room and eat flightless birds which taste of cardboard. We also worship a rotund pseudo-saint with a white beard called Santa Claus.
In the bad old days, Christmas imagery usually consisted of nativity stable scenes and even depictions of Jesus as a baby!!! Thankfully, all that nonsense has been stopped. These days, our homes and city centres are festooned with evergreen shrubbery, pictures of Santa and even crystallized water vapour. So now, people who ‘hate all religion’ can join in the fun as well! Inclusivity is after all, extremely important.
Happily, the Secret Santa slot is replete with just this kind of symbolism. The game’s background depicts a snow-covered village (probably not in the UK) and a simple red box which contains five reels. The reels feature symbols of Santa Claus, a fireplace, various gifts, a Christmas cake and a turkey. Alongside these are the ever-present card symbols.
In terms of gameplay, there are 1024 pay-lines so players will have plenty of opportunities to win something. The Wild Symbol is represented by the Secret Santa logo which flashes when it’s part of a winning line. It substitutes all symbols apart from the Christmas cracker which is the Scatter.
There are also seven features in Secret Santa:
Wild Reels – turns up to 3 reels
Wild Boost – random symbol turned wild
Free Spins – 5 free spins with, all wins multiplied by 3
Mystery Multiplier – all wins multiplied by 5 or 10
Dashing Wilds – 4 dashing wilds land in random symbol positions
Scatter Spree – all symbols pay in any position
Rolling Reels – consecutive wins increase the multiplier by 12
As well as these, the Secret Santa slot includes a bonus feature called 5 of a Kind. This pays out when a player hits 5 of a kind before transforming into a new 5-of-a-kind combination for a second pay-out.
