Secret Santa Mobile Slot Review
So… it’s Christmas… the winter chill is in the air… and you’re stressing over what to buy who, where to shop, and where to get the Christmas turkey; well what better way to de-stress than playing Microgaming’s new slot, Secret Santa; especially designed for mobile players!
Secret Santa is a festive game from Microgaming, the founder of many “must-play” video slots around. With over 850 games currently available today, they’ve made a name for themselves within the online gaming industry, and they continue to flourish, where others fall.
The game features a TON of Christmassy bonuses, and a nice, festive soundtrack throughout the game, and it’s one of the best Microgaming festive-games released to date!
Secret Santa boasts some eccentric graphics across its five reels and 1024 pay-lines. Microgaming are well-known for their 243-ways-to-win pay-line structure, but 1024 is taking things to the next level – in fact, this many pay-lines means that you’ll win with matching symbols in adjacent columns rather than in specific patterns.
The game is designed with snow-covered houses and fields making up the majority of the background, and while the musical soundtrack may seem a little too cheesy, it’s well-done, and makes the game really quite enjoyable for players!
You don’t need a special App on your smartphone or tablet to begin playing – simply open up Secret Santa from your Internet browser, and you’ll be able to begin playing right away!
There are seven bonus features, and these are ALL awarded randomly. When this happens, you’ll see a big present appear in the centre of your screen, which will reveal your bonus: the following is a table from onlineslotsguru.co.uk that shows the bonuses available:
Wild Reels – three reels will be turned completely wild and the prizes for that spin recalculated.
Wild Boost – all symbols of one type will be turned wild and the payout recalculated.
Scatter Spree – all symbols act as scatters which mean that as long as there are at least three on the screen, they will be worth a payout.
Mystery Multiplier – your win will be multiplied up to a maximum of 10x.
Rolling Reels – the symbols which formed the winning combo will disappear, allowing more symbols to fall into place. Each new win increase the multiplier by 2x up to a maximum of 12x.
Dashing Wild – the reels will respin and four extra wilds will be added in random locations.
Free Spins – you’ll receive five free spins with all wins tripled.
Five Of A Kind Feature - If you land a winning combination of five symbols (not including wilds or scatters), you will be paid out and then see that the symbols will turn into another random set of matching symbols. Essentially, it’s two five-of-a-kinds in a row.
Pros Fun and VERY Christmassy, this Microgaming slot is ideal for all types of slot players.
Cons The one demographic this slot ISN’T suitable for, is those who dislike Christmas!
