Saint Nicked slot REVIEW
Saint Nicked ReviewIt must be rough for Santa to be so darn jolly all the time, even though he only has to put on that facade one day of the year. In Lucksome’s Saint Nicked he’s depicted as a muscular tattooed badass, and he and his favorite reindeer have taken a break from the job to hit the pubs. Eventually, their drinking binge lands them in jail, which is where the bonus round plays out.
The game is packed with hilarious commentary and fun moments, and it’s definitely a contender for the Xmas slot of the year due to its refreshing ‘couldn’t care less’ attitude. The Advent Calendar feature is both fun and somewhat innovative, and it rewards players with enough patience to complete it. The 5,000x potential is decent as well, and this is a must try installment in the Holidays genre.

Saint Nicked Slot Features
The premium symbols pay between 5 and 40 x your stake for 5 of a kind wins, and the Santa Wild symbol can land on any reel to step in for pay symbols to help complete wins. The wild also pays the same as the top-tier Rudolph the Reindeer symbol. When Santa or Rudolph are part of a win, a random ‘Santastic Multiplier’ feature is triggered to boost all current line wins.
Special Sub Symbols are overlaid on regular symbols, and these come with values that are collected in the Bar Meter seen on the left-hand side. The aim is to collect enough sub symbol values on a single spin to reach either a trigger point or a safe point. The trigger point awards the Advent Calendar feature, while reaching a safe point makes this easier on the spins that follow. The meter resets between spins, either fully or to the safe point.
The Happy Hour feature may trigger at random times in the base game, and this gives you a random number of extra sub symbols added to the grid. The Advent Calendar feature allows you to pick numbers from 1 to 25 in a chronological order, and each number reveals either a cash prize or the bonus round.
You complete the calendar when you reach the star at the top of the xmas tree, and this is number 25. From that point forward only the star will be available when you trigger the Advent Calendar feature from the base game, and the safe point will be permanently locked at 60 after you’ve completed the calendar. The star always awards a random number of free spins.
You can trigger the Free Spins round also from the base game, and this is done by landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters in view. You get 5, 10 or 20 free spins, respectively, and the Santastic Multiplier range is increased to max out at x25. You get 2 extra rows at the top that are locked as the bonus round starts, and landing key symbols unlock a position above. Unlock all positions to benefit from a 5x5 grid with 3,125 win ways, and key and soap symbols award +1 extra spin.
The Bonus Buy feature is available in some jurisdictions, but not in the UK for sure. If available, you can purchase the 9/10 volatility Delux Bonus Round for 100x your stake. Alternatively, you can pay 300x your stake for a 7/10 volatility Double Lux Bonus Round. This one comes with a 60x win guarantee, so you get a new bonus round if you win less. You get only one retrigger extra chance though.

Saint Nicked Slot - Free Spins
The Christmas season is packed with reskin jobs and tedious, overfriendly Santa releases with the depth of a Coca Cola commercial. Saint Nicked is therefore a highly refreshing installment, and fans of Bad Santa (2003) with Billy Bob Thornton should love this one. You get plenty of attitude and fun action commentary, and the whole idea of Santa and his favorite reindeer on a bender is hilarious.
They take it all the way to the slammer, which is where the bonus round plays out, and the keys unlock system seems inspired by NoLimit City’s prison releases. The Advent Calendar feature is an enjoyable innovation though, and it rewards patient players who complete the whole thing. The enhanced multiplier in the bonus round can do damage to the tune of 5,000x your stake, and spending Xmas in the drunk tank is sailing up as one of the best alternatives in the genre.
If you love Saint Nicked Slot you should also try:
Santa vs Rudolf - is NetEnt’s hilarious Xmas installment from 2019, and you can picture the two drinking buddies ending up in an argument the day after if you see the game at hand as a backstory. Santa and Rudolf clash as walking wilds to trigger the bonus round, and they both come with a meter that can be filled to trigger a modifier.
Naughty Santa - is a sort of Jekyll and Hyde take on the Xmas genre from Habanero, and you get to see a different side of Santa than in most slots. You can look forward to a multiplier meter feature, colossal symbols, expanding symbols, and more of the same in the bonus round.
Brutal Santa - is an unusual Christmas installment from EvoPlay, and Santa comes crashing through your wall on his motorbike to reward the naughty instead of the nice. He’s generous with his modifier presents though, and there is both respins, multiplier action and a bonus round to look forward to.
