Old Saint Nick is the star of the show in Wizard Games’ latest festive slot release taking place in the North Pole, Santa Bonanza.
Santa Bonanza is a 5×3 reel slot with 25-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s bet.
88 – 96.02 per cent
Low value symbols come in the form of playing card royals, with Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces. These symbols can offer between x0.5 and x4 the player’s bet, depending on the number of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Next up, stockings, bells and wreaths depict the medium value symbols, offering between x1.5 and x8 the player’s preferred wager.
High value symbols are represented by snowmen, elves and reindeer. When the right number of paying combinations appear on one turn, these symbols can provide wins between x2 and x12 the player’s stake.
Christmas tree scatters are available on reels one, three and five, activating the free spins feature when three land on the same spin.
Before the free spins begin, these scatters will provide access to a pick-and-click feature that offers enhancements for the bonus game mode.
Finally, Santa wilds can drop into play, substitute for all symbols other than the Christmas tree scatters. Throughout the game, these wilds can appear with multipliers to be applied to any wins that the wilds contribute to.
Before the free spins game mode begins, the pick-and-click feature sees players select from nine different Christmas presents with hidden prizes behind them.
These presents can offer extra spins or increased multiplier values for the wilds that appear in the bonus game, while the feature ends when the player reveals a Santa that waves goodbye, taking players to the free spins with all awarded enhancements.
Furthermore, players can activate a boost feature throughout the base game to enhance their chances of landing scatter symbols. This increases the player’s stake by 20 per cent without impacting paytable prizes.
The free spins feature can also be bought for the price of x100 the player’s chosen stake.
