Jolly days are ahead, whether you like the holiday spirit and belong to the Christmas craze or you simply like to use these days to relax and enjoy your free time with a bit of fun, slot-style. We can’t help you much with Xmas shopping or party planning, but we can give you the best suggestions when it comes to choosing which online slots to play at Springbok around the holidays.
As adults, we no longer believe in Santa Claus, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy Xmas-themed video slots. There are excellent products in our lobby, powered by Real Time Gaming. Here are some of the top recommendations for December 2019, bringing interesting characters and lucrative prizes on your way.
Rudolph Awakens / Return of the Rudolph /Rudolph’s Revenge
Let’s start with the famous Rudolph vs. Santa series which includes several stellar slot games, including Rudolph’s Revenge, Return of the Rudolph and the most recent one, Rudolph Awakens. The series revolves around an unfortunate, yet hilarious conflict between the red-nosed reindeer and Santa. They are designed as tough guys who will even use weapons to settle their dispute. As dramatic as it sounds, RTG deals with this theme in a cartoonish and fun way, which is quite refreshing considering how traditional and unoriginal Xmas slots can be.
Rudolph the reindeer started a riot Rudolph’s Revenge, a slot released in 2011, with 50 paying lines over 5 reels and 3 rows. This one is a feature-rich video slot boasting Scatter bomb symbols, free spins in the bonus rounds, multipliers and a progressive jackpot. In Return of the Rudolph, we have another example of a slightly dark twist on a well-loved theme – the red-nosed reindeer is not happy about pulling the sled and doing all the dirty work for Santa. He’s back and ready to rumble in another progressive video slot with Scatters, free games, multipliers and stacked Wilds.
Last but not least, the battle continues in Rudolph Awakens. This one is released fresh for 2019, and it comes complete with awesome graphics, familiar characters, great animation and nudging Wilds for easier wins. Rudolph Awakens is not packed with a progressive jackpot, but does come have a 50,000 times the bet per line maximum payoff.
Naughty or Nice / Naughty or Nice Springbreak
Who says Christmas slots can’t be sexy? To reinvigorate the Christmas spirit, RTG developed Naughty or Nice and Naughty or Nice Springbreak video slots in which the main protagonists are young ladies in pretty tempting Mrs Claus costumes. In real life, there are naughty girls and nice girls, but here you don’t have to choose because you will see them showing up on the reels together. The original Naughty or Nice slot features a regular 5x3 configuration and 50 win lines. It’s quite sparkly and twinkly, with Christmas decorations around the reels. The girls will play the role of substitutes to help complete the winning combos and if you land the Scattered Naughty or Nice logo 10 free spins will be added to your account.
Naughty or Nice Springbreak is a sequel, released in 2014. It brings a Christmas-in-the-sun theme and despite the festive story, it’s safe to say you can play it all year round. You will see the two ladies enjoying the beach life with Santa, while Mrs Claus is not happy about it. This one is a 30-line game with 5 columns and 3 rows of symbols, mainly playing card denominations if we exclude the character symbols. The logo is the Scatter here as well, and it triggers the main special feature – a round of freebies, 12 if you go with Nice Girl and 10 if you go with the Naughty Girl + additional Wilds. Lots of fun guaranteed.
Being released in 2013, one could call Santastic ‘oldie but a goodie’. First of all – that name. Isn’t it genius? This is a very celebratory video slot, quite traditional and family-friendly. It has lovely graphics, showing all the nice things we love about Christmas – snow, teddy bears, candy, cakes, stockings full of presents, as well as Rudolph (but a much friendlier version than the one presented in the Rudolph vs. Santa series. Santastic runs on a 3x3 engine and has 5 betways. Pay attention to the bonus meters on the sides of the reel grid, as that’s where you can keep track how lucky you are after each spin.
Santastic brings the Festive Feast feature, triggered by any three-of-a-kind combination. One of the prizes displayed on the bonus meter is awarded, anything from 10 free games to 2,500 times the bet. There are two Wilds, a Double and a Triple. They will double and triple your win, respectively, as long as they take part in it. When both complete the same combination on the same spin, a multiplier of 6x will be applied. Ho, ho, ho!
Swindle All the Way
The fact that the slot includes two escaped robbers lurking around a quiet suburbia around Christmas time, looking for a way to snatch something valuable, gives out some undeniable Home Alone vibes. Swindle All the Way is a premium RTG online slot game with 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines offering an upbeat audio track and colourful graphics, playing with the comedy of seeing two sneaky bandits in Santa costumes. The iconic duo will appear as Wilds, substituting for any other regular symbol, whilst the Scatter which is depicted as the Swindle All the Way logo.
Hit 3 or more Scatters and you’ll enter the bonus round where you’ll have to click on reels 3, 4 or 5 to find out if any burglars are hiding behind the windows. Try to retrigger the feature, which will win you 10 additional free games. The spins are capped at 60 and you can also benefit from a multiplier of 33x as a maximum. Before you start thinking about going rogue and putting on a lazy Santa costume, don’t forget that Swindle All the Way has two progressive jackpot pots and these can be won on any regular game spin.
The Naughty List / The Nice List
Children are prompted to write lists of presents for Santa which will become reality if they behave nicely. According to Real Time Gaming, naughty people get to have their lists, as well. The Naughty List is a cheeky video slot with 5 reels, 4 rows and 50 paying lines. There are plenty of opportunities to win, including brilliant extra features such as two progressive jackpots, Santastic Free Spins and the Lucky Feature. The graphics are polished and sophisticated and look amazing on every type of screen.
Its counterpart, The Nice List slot, is set in a comfy family home with a decorated tree and a prepared Xmas dinner. The playing card symbols are designed as Christmas cards which is a nice touch. Also, the machine comes complete with 1024 paylines across 5 reels, which is more than rewarding. The Nice List Book symbol is the Scatter and if you collect 3 on a single spin, you will activate one of the two available extra features. One is a Present Pick bonus game with instant wins and multipliers, and the other adds extra Wilds on the reels. Naughty or nice, Santa won’t forget to put you on his list this year, because that’s what Christmas is all about!
