Merry Xmas Slot Play'n GO

Merry Xmas is a Christmas-themed 15-payline video slot which runs on the Play’n GO software platform. The symbols fit the theme and feature Santa Claus, candles, reindeer, bells. The game’s wild card is a multiplier which multiplies wins when substituting. Players are invited to try the slot for free on this page or play the game for real money in any of the Play’n GO casinos from the listings.

In order to join the holiday celebrations, one needs to adjust their bet first. “Coin Value” alters the coin size ranging from 0.01 to 0.25 and “Coins” modifies the number of coins bet. To adjust the number of paylines played, “Lines” needs to be pressed. “Spin” starts the game, “Auto Play” turns the reels a number of times uninterrupted and “Bet Max” spins them at the highest wager.

When 3 Present symbols spin into the view, the Bonus game will be triggered. Players then choose one of the symbols to reveal the winning amount. Up to x150 one’s total bet can be won.

Some casinos don't have it, but some do, and that's how I came across this Merry Xmas game from Play'nGo. As Christmas draws nearer, I have already played quite a number of the season's games, but I know that there are still a few more games out there that I have probably seen before but haven't tried them out yet. In fact, there are many more games from other 'minor' or new providers that I haven't focussed on as yet, simply because I tend to stick to a few providers at a time, and hardly venturing out to try as many as I can. Sooner or later, I will get to them, in time.

Well, looking at the game for the first time, I was expecting the usual game play like in most other similar games, but I was damn wrong. Here is another case of Playn'Go doing a direct cloning of one of their other games. Merry Xmas makes the third game to share the same design concept and gameplay with Lady of Fortune and Samba Carnival. When I realised this upon looking at the game's paytable, my immediate reaction was "oh god, not another one!" The other 2 games were disappointing for me, which most probably would end the same way with this Merry Xmas game too. I was very hesitant to play the game, but since I have already deposited and intended to play a christmas-theme game, I finally continued on.

The paytable is exactly identical to the other 2 games. The Wild symbol doesn't pay for itself, it substitutes for other symbols except the Bonus symbols, and award a random 2x to 5x multiplier for wins with it. The Wild symbol only appears on reel 3, so don't expect much of it appearing on the reels to give wins. There aren't any Scatter symbols because there aren't any Free Spins game. Argh! The Bonus symbols appear only on reels 1, 3 and 5, and getting all 3 symbols trigger the Bonus game. A very simple game but never to my liking. Pick 1 of the Present symbols to win an instant cash reward of up to 150x the total bet. Easier said then getting. As for the other normal symbols, they are stacked on all reels, and pay from 2500x (Santa) down to 75x, all per line bet for 5 of each kind. As with the other 2 games as well, this paytable is also low.


What would you say if you had to wait 460 spins just to get the first Bonus game? And what would you say if that Bonus game paid only 10x the total bet amount, after eating about 80% of your starting credits? Sounds impossible? That was what exactly happened to my first game on Merry Xmas. I was blardy infuriated with such a damn low payout after losing most of my starting balance, only to get 10x my bet back. What the argh! That's not all. After playing a total of more than 600 spins, there wasn't any single payout that exceeded 25x the total bet amount, and that was blardy ridiculous! Merry Xmas is the first Christmas-themed game that I now hate! I thought the game 'A Christmas Carol' was very bad, but Merry Xmas takes the cake!

Microgaming have had the xmas slot game more or less all to themselves for a long time, a situation which Play N Go have now straightened out nicely with their "Merry Xmas" machine, another beautiful slot with their trademark high definition graphics, lovely fluid animations and... high quality sounds? Okay I kind of lied about the last one, the music is strangely sparse and left me feeling a little underwhelmed, but as I tend to turn off the music of most slots fairly quickly anyway I will forgive them that one!

You might find yourself a little confused about some of your wins when you start playing this game as all symbols pay as adjacent combinations meaning you can win both from left to right and right to left as well as for three matching symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. I really like this mechanic as it provides a lot of different ways of achieving a win and although you inevitably pay for this in the games paytable I think it's kind of neat that a christmas themed games rewards play with very frequent wins.


The game has four different wild symbols with multipliers ranging from 2x to 5x but it seems extremely rare for more than one to appear onscreen at once for some reason meaning that whilst a 20x multiplier (for example) should be theoretically possible if the 4x and 5x were to land on one win line simultaneously, I haven't seen anything like this occur whilst I have been playing the game.

I also found the bonus game quite hard to trigger too. Play N Go have a habit of putting their bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 only and although this doesn't necessarily guarantee it is harder to trigger than if there are five bonus symbols on the reels (it depends on the length of the reel strips) I do think that in the case of most Play N Go slots it certainly is more difficult. The bonus game has a maximum payout of just 150x your stake too which isn't as exciting as it might have been.

I wish Play N Go had decided to include maybe a free spins mode with a multiplier in this game and then I think it would have been a really good competitor as a game for the festive season. As things stand this is okay, but nowhere near up to the standards of Microgamings fantastic "Santa's Wild Ride".

Merry Xmas is a Christmas theme slot by Play'n Go. The release of this slot was during the festive season which is Christmas time. This slot has 5 reels and 15 paylines and it's very colourful.

This slot has 4 wild symbols with different multipliers. The multipliers range from x2, x3, x4 and x5. You can win very big if you get a semi high symbol in combo with x4 or 5 multiplier but it hardly happens. This slot kind of give me the feeling that it is similar to lady of fortune and samba carnival which is also slots from Play'n Go. Now first of all these games do not have free spins feature but they have bonus feature.

Landing 3 scattered rapped gift symbols on the reels will give you access to the bonus feature. This is a pick me feature and choosing one of the gifts that is presented will give you an instant cash prize. The maximum that you can win from this feature is x150 your total stake. I never managed to win that much and I only triggered the feature twice. On average win x10 – x20 my stake.

I do not like this slot much as I never win big and rarely win in general on this slot as well. Low to medium variance slot I guess. This game should have a free spins feature. As much as Christmas is happy seasons I would like to win some serious cash. Just presenting Father Christmas and gift are for kids and will make them happy not for me. Unless I find some serious cash and not candy. If you like lady of fortune and samba carnival then I would recommend you give this slot a try, but this is not my cup of tea and certainly not for the long run.
