Santa's Gift Rush Slots
Santa's Gift Rush sounds like every Christmas Eve he has, doesn't it? And we all know the feeling of rushing around looking for gifts for everyone. Maybe we can look for some gifts on the reels of this slot game too, so if you're keen to know more, let's dive right in.
Do you know the name of this developer?
If you've heard of PG Soft, you can add this game to the others you might have heard of from their team.
Don't forget they've got a demo for you
Yes, and it is easy enough to load and play whether you're on a computer or mobile device. Santa turns up looking happy and ready for action on the loading screen.
Well, you can work out the theme, right?
It's another Christmas slot, of course, with Santa and his sleeves rolled up appearing over the top of the festive reels. More about those shortly…
Exploring the design
It's a 3D game, offering a sparkling set of reels filled with delights. While they've given us the familiar letters and numbers, they've made them all look like iced festive biscuits. Not a good sign if you're hungry though! Look out too for packed stockings, candy canes, and plenty more.
How to play the Santa's Gift Rush slot game
We begin with the usual five-reel format and three icons appearing per reel when they stop. We don't get any progressive jackpot prizes in this game though.
Santa appears with a very cheesy grin as the labeled wild symbol, so he's great to see in action. There is also a Gift Rush Symbol that appears in full height on the reels. This one looks like the front of a holiday train, and it is the only symbol the Santa wild won't replace. The train can steam into view on any of the middle three reels, but not the remaining two.
There are plenty of lines to bet on
If you're looking for a festive 30-line slot to play, this game ticks that box.
Select the coin to see the bets
Coins go from one cent to 50 cents, while you can choose a bet level too. This goes from level one to 10, meaning the quantity of coins played per line.
Make sure you read the information in the paytable
This explains all the rules and features you might see as you play. We'll take you through them here as well.
What's the Gift Rush Feature?
You need to find one or more Gift Rush symbols on the middle three reels to unlock it. This causes the Gift Rush symbol to activate above the reels. You can see Santa leaning on it.
When this reel area spins, you'll get an outcome taken from several possibilities. You might see a multiplier worth 2x, 4x, or 5x. This gives you the Coin Feature. In this case, the relevant multiplier awards that coin prize by using the bet amount that unlocked the feature.
Alternatively, you might see an elf appear there. This unlocks the Elf Feature which causes the main set of reels to go through a respin. You'll then see the elf add some random symbols to the reels. If more elves appeared in the Gift Rush area, you'll get more random symbols dropped there too.
The final Gift Rush feature involves free spins
These are awarded if you found Santa in the Gift Rush reel. You'll receive 10 spins for each triggering Santa on the reel. While playing these spins, you might see giant wilds landing on the final three reels of the game. These can be sized at 2x2 or 3x3, improving your chances of landing some impressive prizes.
Do we know what the RTP is?
We do, and it runs at an impressive level too - reaching 96.36%.
Did we enjoy playing the Santa's Gift Rush slot game?
We did, especially because of the reel at the top of the main set of reels. It may look a little confusing to start with, but it's easy to understand once you've spun a few demo games. This is worth 9.5 out of 10, only dropping a small amount because there are no progressives available.
What is the maximum prize level in the game?
PG Soft has confirmed this to be 9,000x your bet.
Play some spins for practice purposes
If you do this, you'll be able to play for long enough - using the demo credits - to unlock the Gift Rush feature. This gives you more details about how it works, so you can see if you'd like to make any real wagers.
Check out the real thing this festive season
If you're looking for a few gifts this Christmas, perhaps this Santa has them for you in the real slot game. Just be sure you adjust your wager to reach the desired and affordable level if you do play the real game.
Available in mobile casinos
If you find a mobile site carrying PG Soft games, you're good to go with Santa's Gift Rush.
