This 25-paylines Merry Bells game has all the requisites for a Christmas atmosphere - Santa Claus, reindeers, elves, snowmen, christmas trees, presents and whatnots. Even the overall presentation has lots of red colours too. The only setback is that the graphics aren't as good as I would expect it to be. They are more cartoonish in nature, perhaps more suitable for games from yesteryears. Come on Pragmatic, surely you can come up with a more contemporary game, perhaps with some 3D renditions thrown in, or perhaps with just astonishingly beautiful graphics and overall presentation. That would bring more joy for Christmas slot players.
The House is the Wild symbol, paying a marvelous 10,000x the line bet for 5 of them, and substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols. Sadly though, it is still a dumb Wild symbol for not doubling any wins with it, not becoming stacked, and not becoming expanded either. The Christmas Tree is the Scatter symbol, 5 of which pays nothing, yep, nothing, argh! Getting 3, 4 or 5 of them triggers 10, 20 or 50 free spins with all wins x5, and more free spins can be retriggered, at least something good to replace the missing Scatter payout. The Sleigh is the Bonus symbol, appearing only on reels 2, 3 and 4, and getting all 3 of them on any active payline triggers Santa's Presents Bonus game, to win from 300 up to 2700 coins. As for the other symbols, Santa himself pays 1000x, the Elf pays 500x, the Snowman pays 300x, the Penguin pays 300x, the Reindeer pays 200x and the rest pay from 200x to 50x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. A good paytable.
