Low value symbols are represented by the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.05 and x0.5 the player’s wager.
Meanwhile, green, blue, red and purple Christmas stockings depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.2 and x50 the player’s preferred bet.
Gold Christmas pudding scatters are also available, triggering 10 free spins when three drop in on the same spin, and two additional spins for each Christmas pudding that appear beyond those three.
Finally, wild Christmas tree symbols can appear, substituting for all symbols other than the Christmas pudding scatters.
Throughout the game, winning symbols will disappear after providing their payouts, making way for new symbols to drop in and increase the win potential.
When these winning symbols disappear, special Christmas present bonus prizes can appear in their places before the new symbols drop in. These present prizes can only be collected by a random reindeer feature that occurs above the reel set.
On random spins and cascades, a reindeer with a sled can appear above the board. This reindeer will collect any Christmas present bonus prizes that have shown up on the spin or cascade it appears on.
Each reindeer will sit above a certain reel on the board, moving one space to the left with each cascade that occurs before disappearing off the reel set after it has collected wins on the very first reel.
This reindeer feature can also present multipliers on its sled that will further enhance the payout potential of any Christmas presents it collects.
In the free spins game mode, reindeers and sleds appear throughout the feature, starting with a multiplier of x1 on the first spin and increasing by a value of one for the next spin or cascade that occurs.
Furthermore, players can buy access to the free spins feature for the price of x100 their stake.
