Christmas Santa slot REVIEW
Christmas Santa ReviewThe visual style of Christmas Santa reminds us of some childhood Holidays season clip art cartoon, and it’s actually quite pleasing to the eye, probably due to the novelty and/or nostalgia. This idyllic exterior stands in stark contrast to the math model however, as the brutal volatility will do little to nothing to fill you with a warm and fuzzy Christmas spirit.
The exception is if you land anything close to the massive 30,000x potential, of course, and this is really a high-roller appealing beast of a seasonal title. Even the base game is capable of handing out solid payouts, due to the multiplying multiplier Christmas gifts. The bonus round can turn into quite a nerve-racking thrillride if you gather a few of those in there too. Find out all you need to know in our full review below.

Christmas Santa slot Features
The Christmas present symbols come in 3 different colors; green, red and gold, and these award multipliers of 2x, 3x and 5x, respectively. You will see the multiplier value pop out of the gift-wrapped box, and landing more than one at the same time means that the respective multiplier values will multiply for up to 30x boosts.
You will trigger the bonus round when you land at least 3 Santa scatters anywhere on the same spin. You can also trigger the bonus round from the Bonus Wheel feature in the actual free spins round. The wheel of fortune comes with 15 segments that award cash prizes up to 50x, while the golden segment triggers the bonus round again.
You will be granted 5 free spins no matter how you trigger the feature, and the free spins feature comes with 4 special symbols. You’ll see a Santa meter/ladder on the left-hand side, and your goal is to climb it by landing sticky Santas on the reels. Here is an overview of the 4 bonus round symbols you will land, and what they do:
Santa symbols become sticky and are collected by the left-hand side meter/ladder.
Christmas present boxes become sticky also, and give you a multiplier like in the base game.
Snowflake symbols (red and green) are placeholder blanks that do nothing.
The Enhanced Bonus Wheel also becomes sticky, and gives you a 2x to 50x win, 1-2 extra free spins or it retriggers of the whole feature if you land on the golden segment.
You will always get an extra free spin when you land Santas, Christmas present wilds or Bonus Wheels. The free spins round is over when you run out of spins, or when the whole grid is filled with sticky symbols. You will then win between 5x and 1,000x your stake from the Santa meter on the left-hand side. Land the maximum combined Christmas present multipliers of 30x, and you can win up to 30,000x your stake via the bonus round.
The 200 Spins Christmas Santa slot Experience
We had some pretty decent base game wins here, due to the Christmas present multipliers. When a few of them combine, magic can really happen. We trigger the bonus round at around 1:30, and you can see how it all played out in the 2-minute highlights video below.
Max Win Gaming has decided to go large and hard in their seasonal release, something that’s a bit surprising for a Festive slot that might be played for a few days tops. That being said, the game itself is surprisingly entertaining, and the gift wrapped wilds can pop up to combine into pretty solid base game wins.
The bonus round is very “hit or miss” here, not least due to the high volatility, and many times the 5 spins you get run out with nothing much to show for. If it wasn’t for the slow-motion pace, the bonus round would be over in a blink most of the time. However, those times when Santas and gift-multipliers abound, you will feel like a kid on Christmas morning again for sure.
