Santa's Great Gifts Slots
Santa's Great Gifts slot is a new addition from Pragmatic Play that runs on six reels and up to 20 paylines and comes with a Christmas theme. It's been a very long year, so the holiday spirit must relax us. Santa is ready to start wrapping presents and preparing the way to deliver presents, but he needs a helping hand. Santa's Great Gifts is a six-reel slot with a Pay Anywhere mechanic. Winning combinations appear whenever eight or more of the same symbols land anywhere on the reels.
About Santa's Great Gifts
Pragmatic Play has increased the excitement with a progressive jackpot feature where the highest level offers multipliers of only 50x to 100x. That's a big win on almost any winning spin, regardless of the symbol you get, and that's why you'll enjoy playing Santa's Great Gifts. However, you will have to be rather lucky. As you might expect, it can be challenging to level up, but if you're into buying bonuses, Santa's Great Gifts will become a viable option for fans of bonus purchases. However, the cost of the highest level can be pretty high at 500x. Other providers often include a 500x buy-in bonus option, and often the potential is much higher. Speaking of possibility, the highest max win here is 5,000x, which is pretty standard for a Pragmatic Play title. Some say they need to up the ante a bit, sometimes including us, but at least they are realistic and possible.
Betting Options And RTP
The minimum bet available to players is $0.20 and $0.25 for the Ante Bet spin, while the maximum bet available is $100 and $125 for the Ante Bet spin, with plenty of other options between the two. Santa's Great Gifts has a theoretical RTP of 97% and a max win capacity of 5,000x.
Cascading Reels Feature
Santa's Great Gifts features cascading reels. Every time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols disappear from the reels, and new characters expand from above to fill all empty slots. The slot machine uses the Tumble mechanic, meaning that the corresponding symbols disappear after each spin after the winnings payout. The remaining symbols on the grid will drop down to allow new characters to fill the vacant positions. Spins can occur in sequences, meaning multiple wins can appear after any spin.
Symbols And Paytable
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular character here is the Snowball, followed by the gingerbread, cookie, candy cane, and hot drink. The low-paying symbols fall into the pink, red, green, and blue bauble collection. There is no wild symbol in Santa's Great Gifts.
Ante Bet Feature
Before spinning, you can activate the Ante Bet feature on the left side of the reel set. Choosing to start Ante Bet will increase your current bet by 25%, but there are certain benefits associated with this. Activating the Ante Bet feature will double your chances of free spins, with more Scatters on the reels. When the Ante Bet feature is active, the Bonus Buy option will be disabled.
While playing, you will come across up to 4 colorful gift boxes that can appear on all reels. These gift boxes always land with an active multiplier. Whenever the multiplier symbol lands, it reveals a random multiplier value between x2 and x100. At the end of cascading sequences, the current multiplier values add to your total wins per spin.
Free Spins And Scatter Symbol
Landing 4, 5, or 6 Scatters on the reels in any position will trigger the Free Spins round and award 10, 15, and 20 Free Spins, respectively. An advanced feature comes into play during free spins, starting at level 1. Each time a multiplier symbol lands, it will remain in the meter. The Free Spins wheel will increase when it reaches a certain threshold, increasing the multiplier values.
