Secrets of Christmas Slots

We all know Santa comes every Christmas Eve to deliver gifts to children everywhere. But what else might you know… and what might you discover if you decide to play the Secrets of Christmas slot game?

We were curious to know what lay beyond this title, so we decided to review the game by trying it out and bringing you a report here.

You'll know this developer, we're sure

NetEnt is the brand behind the Secrets of Christmas slot, and since they've released other major hits including Starburst, we know we are in good hands.

They've released a demo too

If you still feel that curiosity when you've read our review, the next natural step is to play the demo of the slot game.

We have another superb festive theme here

It's hard to find a new twist for a festive slot game, but sometimes, you just don't need to. You've got the chance to bet on a Christmassy slot that looks wonderful, containing all the elements you might remember from your childhood.

Another wonderful design from NetEnt too

The game looks beautiful and gives us lots of detailed symbols and images to take us through the game. It is more immersive because of this, while we know some festive slots don't give this much detail. It makes it more appealing for a longer session.

How to begin playing Secrets of Christmas

The usual five-reel format appears when the game begins, so you've got a nice introduction to the title there. Santa Claus is always wonderful to see in a Christmas slot, but especially so here, as he is the wild. He'll happily replace all other symbols except for the scatter. This is a delightful symbol showing a bag packed with toys for kids over the festive season.

Lots of paylines spread over the reels

Yes, we counted 25 of them in action, giving lots of chances for prizes to land on each spin.

This does qualify as a penny slot

It does, so you can bet a quarter per spin for the entire thing. There are plenty more coin options too though, and those wanting wagers designed for high rollers can go up to $125 a spin.

Paytable details

You can easily reach this from the opening screen, and it's advisable to check the various pages, prize values, and other information before playing for the first time.

No bonus to uncover, sadly

Hold on, though… the free spin feature we are coming to next in our review has far more available to enjoy than you might think.

Free spins and what to expect in Secrets of Christmas

Remember the scattered bag of toys? You need to find three, four, or five of these to go through to the free spin feature. You'll always receive 10 free games with a base multiplier of 1x, but there is a picking game to go through first. This gives you the same number of picks as you got scatters in the triggering combination.

You begin the game by visiting the gifts underneath the Christmas tree. You can pick three, four, or five of them, with each one revealing more spins to add to your starting amount, some multipliers, the chance of a wild reel or reels, and some extra wilds. You then play your spins according to the bonuses you have found under the tree.

What's the RTP for Secrets of Christmas?

We've got a cool return to player percentage here, reaching an impressive level of 96.7%.

Our rating: Is Secrets of Christmas a festive hit?

We think so, and it is another reliable and entertaining game coming from the NetEnt brand. We can confidently score this one at 9.5 out of 10.

What's the best icon to watch for?

The festive bell is the biggest individual payer, offering 1,250x your line wager if you can find five of them on the same paid line. However, the game also reveals t

hat the maximum prize available is 356,250 coins. We suspect this would cover a series of spins rather than just one amazing one!

Begin with a few demo spins

We played until we got to the free spin round, just so we could see how the spins worked and how we found extra prizes from the gifts under the tree.

Will you decide to play for real?

You can find out what you think of the game by trying it first, then deciding whether this is ideal to play through December or any time you fancy it.

Is there a mobile version to play too?

Yes, you can play a mobile version of the slot that is perfect for Android and iOS users.
