Ideal for any Christmas, Playtech’s Santa Surprise is not a one-of-a-kind slot, but it is one which encapsulates all your favourite aspects of Christmas in one title.
Santa Surprise generally tends to get a run at that extra special time of the year, but this Playtech slot is available all year round if you’re missing the Christmas and festive season.
Look and feel
Santa Surprise is everything you expect from a Christmas-themed slot.
There are candy canes, stockings, bells, presents, and of course, the fat, jolly man himself all decked out in red.
Santa Surprise utilises one of Playtech’s older formats for slot gameplay, but when do Christmas-themed slots ever get old?
The gameplay in Santa Surprise adheres to an older form of Playtech slot, but this format is still considered to be the industry standard, consisting of 20 paylines spread over 5 reels.
Players can alter their coin values, the number of coins they stake per line, and all 20 paylines themselves, allowing for real control over how much you wish to play.
At its cheapest, Santa Surprise carries a minimum stake limit of just 1p per line per spin, so you can’t get cheaper than that.
Maximum stakes can set you back a grand if you’re feeling flush.
Top prizes – like many older Playtech developed non-progressive slots – are capped at 10,000 coins in total, irrespective how much you stake on this Santa-filled slot.
Santa appears as a wild, and as usual, wilds can replace all other icons save for scatters.
Scatters (houses) are joined by Christmas tree bonus icons in this slot as the other special symbols.
Scatters will trigger a free spins bonus worth 10 spins and 3x multipliers when 3 or more symbols appear anywhere on the reels.
Bonus icons will trigger a click and win game in which players can open presents from under a Christmas tree.
The number of picks you get depends on how many bonus icons you located, which each present offering up cash prizes.
A gamble feature has also been included in this game and can be triggered after any winning spin.
