It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas with Blue Guru Games as the firm releases its seasonal slot game, A Winter’s Tale.


Out now




A Winter’s Tale is a 5×4, 20-payline slot that includes a sticky wild free game, gift unwrapping and scatters. 


Medium to high


90, 92, 94, 95.15 per cent


Low value symbols in the game come in the form of traditional A to J royals, which offer between €0.10 and €5, when the player puts a €1 wager on and depending on the number of matching symbols that land in a single spin. 

Christmas tree baubles are the next symbols with an increased value, providing €0.20 for a three-of-a-kind win and €10 for a winning combination of five. 

The Christmas tree is its own symbol, offering a maximum payout of €15 for a five-of-a-kind win. The final regular paying symbol is the Yule goat, giving players a max return of €30 for five matching symbols in a single spin. 

Special symbols in the game include santa who is a wild and substitutes for all symbols, except the scatter, and can appear on reels two, three, four and five. 

During the base game, landing scatters adds them into the collection pot and awards additional respins. If the player lands five or more, the gift unwrapping bonus mode is unlocked. 

Within this feature, one, two or three free game prizes from the gift unwrapping awards either five, seven or nine free games respectively. In the free spins mode, landed wild symbols are sticky for the duration of the feature. 


Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager at Blue Guru said: “We wanted to create a seasonal slot that welcomes all the warmth and wistful nostalgia that a traditional Christmas brings. 

“A Winter’s Tale transports players to a true Nordic festive atmosphere, slipping in frequent opportunities to maximise wins on every single spin.”
