Santa's Wild Ride Slot

Microgaming

Christmas will never be the same after you’ve played Santa’s Wild Ride. This zany five-reel, 243-ways bonus video slot from Microgaming takes you through Santa’s journey around the world in a motorcycle! Find the keys, and blaze your way into big wins with your choice of three wild enhancements. Play Santa’s Wild Ride for free on this page, or go to any of our listed Microgaming casinos to try it for real money.

Before you go meet Mr. and Mrs. Claus, decide how much you want to bet. The - and + buttons under the coin icon allow you to select your base coin denomination. Then, change your bet level using the - and + buttons under “Coins”. Each press adjusts your total bet by 1.50. Start the game by hitting “Spin”, or use “Bet Max” to play with the maximum bet of 7.50 credits per spin. Alternatively, use the “Auto Play” section to spin continuously within the limits you set.

Once the reels are spinning, there’s no telling how much Christmas cheer you will win. If you get matching symbols along three or more adjacent reels from leftmost to right, you’ll win prize amounts shown in the paytable. The Santa’s Wild Ride Badge is wild, and when it appears in a winning combination, it will award a multiplier of up to 4x!

Get 3 or more scattered Keys to initiate Santa’s Free Spins. At the start of the round, you can choose whether you want Stacked Wilds, a rare Expanding Wild, or Trailing Wilds that leave quite a mark. To top it all off, wins from the free spin round are doubled.

Of course, Santa isn’t going to leave you empty-handed. If you get a Gift Box on reel 2 and reel 4, you’ll trigger the Free Gift Bonus. Hopefully you haven’t been naughty!

With Christmas just lurking around the block, or around the corner, players’ attention and game plays may well be leaning more towards playing Santa's game, or Christmas-themed games. We are used to seeing Santa up in the sky, riding his reindeers-driven sleigh, not literally of course, but in representations of Santa in the games. But Santa riding a motorbike? Hmm. Definitely not whilst delivering all those sacks and sacks of presents, so it's probably Santa's day off, and he's enjoying a wild ride on a motorbike instead, somewhere in dry sunny weather. Certainly not riding a motorbike in the North Pole, right? Hmm, whatever.

The logo 'Santa's Wild Ride' is the Wild symbol, 5 of which pays 800x the line bet, it substitutes for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, and doubles, triples or even quadruples any wins with it, at random. In the Free Spins game, this Wild symbol can become stacked, expanded or even trailing. Nice! The Scatter symbol pays 50x the total bet for 5 of them, which is low, and getting 3 or more of these Scatters trigger 25 free spins with all wins doubled. Nice! There are 3 choices of Free Spins games to choose from - either Stacked Wilds on all reels, Expanding Wilds, or Trailing Wilds, each mode playing and paying differently. Pick one which you prefer most, or try them all, one at a time. My personal preference is the Expanding Wilds.

In the base game, there is also a Bonus symbol, appearing only on reels 2 and 4, and each time it appears, a random cash prize of 1x to 3x the total bet amount is awarded. Maybe this prize can be a little bit more, perhaps up to 5x or 10x, but I haven't seen it or got it in any of my plays. As for the symbols in the game, Santa pays 200x, Mrs Santa pays 175x, the Elf pays 150x, the motorbike pays 125x, the Sign pays 100x, and all the other lower symbols pay 80x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. The paytable also indicates a maximum possible win of 1,900,000 coins, or 12,666x the total bet amount, which is excellent no doubt, but don't expect to get it though. Getting 5 fully Stacked Reels or 5 Expanded Wild Reels in a Free Spins game is an almost impossible mission. That indication is there simply to attract players to play the game more.

DISLIKED

Putting the impossible aside, the paytable does provide possible good wins, with its Stacked and Expanded Wilds, but how good a win is impossible to say. The symbols values are actually low, but the multipliers in the base game and the Stacked/Expanded Wilds in the free spins do allow for much bigger total wins. However, from my several plays on this Santa's Wild Ride game, I could only manage to get mostly mediocre wins of between 10x to 44x my bet amount. Only once did I get a nice 128x win with the Expanded Wilds feature.

After several plays on Santa's Wild Ride, I realised that it plays quite closely to the game Voila! The payouts tend to be small most of the time, with occasional good wins with the Wilds multipliers, and also lots of empty useless spins before a Free Spins game can come. I've had to wait for 480+ spins once, followed by 160+ spins for the next Free Spins game, but I quickly quit playing the game before I lose all of my credit balance. Did I win? Not on your life! I lost about 40% of my starting balance. If I had carried on playing, I would have lost all of it. It's typical of Microgaming games.

Christmas themed slots have been a staple of Microgaming casinos for some time now and this is undoubtedly the best of them for me. Whilst it does share some similarities with "Deck The Halls", this game was created around the time Microgaming's 243 ways to win slot games were at the height of their popularity and as a result that mechanic has been used in place of the traditonal paylines this time around. Also quite surprisingly Santas Wild Ride isn't a direct clone of an existing game either although it does share some similarities with several other popular Microgaming slots.

For me, a christmas themed game just wouldn't be right if it didn't have the possibility of awarding some super big wins and this game certainly does not disappoint in that respect - admittedly the base game payouts are nothing special although they are well within the expected range for a 243 ways slot, but the maximum win during free spins sets things straight with a massive 1.9 million coins up for grabs equating to a monster 12,666x your stake! Wow!

Unsurprisingly these wins won't be handed to you in the base game, nor in the mini Free Gift bonus round which is really more of an afterthought than anything. No, for a shot at the big time you'll be hoping for a full screen of wilds with the highest possible multiplier during one of the free spin rounds. A massive 25 free spins ar awarded regardless of how many scatters you land, at which point you'll be asked to choose from stacked, expanding or trailing wilds. These features have all been seen before in other games but nevertheless it's nice to see them all offered here, and the ability to choose your favourite is a popular feature of 243 ways games.

DISLIKED

If I had to add a criticism of Santas Wild Ride it would have to be the low payouts for the bottom end combinations - you'll struggle to see your stake returned from the lower 3 and 4 of a kind combinations, but that's simply a result of these wins being much more common in a ways based game than one featuring paylines. Personally I'm more than willing to trade a little RTP from the bottom end of the paytable as long as I receive it back by way of top end potential, so I love Santas Wild Ride!

Santa`s Wild ride is another Christmas themed slot from Microgaming software. I enjoy playing this slot because the sound effects really put you into the Christmas mood. I have played this slot only once and I remember that at the very beginning it ate all my money at the beginning. Just when I started losing hope I got big win with 4 sandwich symbols and a wild with x 4 multiplier. I had many big wins after that.

This is a very interesting slot. The thing that I really appreciate is that there are wilds on every reel. They have the power to multiply your win every time with x2, x3 or x 4. The multiplier is random every time. During the base game I have won nothing more than 30 x bet size. But, just like any other game the Santa`s Wild Ride free spins round is the one that has the potential to pay huge. To trigger the free spins you need at least 3 keys scatter symbols. You get 25 free spins and you also have to chose one of three bonuses. The first one is the Stacked Wild, which means that each reel has stacked wilds. The second choice is the Expanding Wild, this means that if a wild lands on a given reel it will turn the whole reel wild. The last option is the Trailing Wild, with this feature wilds are added to the reel randomly before each spin. I triggered the free spins round only couple of times and every time I was choosing the Expanding Wild feature.

I cannot say that I was lucky because most of the times I was getting an expanding wild on the fourth or on the fifth reel, and no good symbols on the first three reels. So I have not won anything more than 30 x bet during my whole session.
