Big Santa Slots
If there is one thing we know about Father Christmas - or Santa, if you prefer - it's that he's a big guy. He wouldn't look right in that red and white suit if he was skinny, would he? And we guess those mince pies keep him warm and powered up for his trip around Earth on Christmas Eve.
So, we decided to explore his exploits in the Big Santa slot game, which is available for you to play online today. Come with us as we find out more about it.
Developer information for Big Santa
This one comes from Spin Logic, formerly known as Realtime Gaming, so you can count on their experience in the industry.
You can try it first, too
No need to begin with the real version of the game - just load the demo and use the available practice budget in there instead.
You can work out the theme, we're sure
Yes, the theme for this game bases itself around the festive season, so you can see Big Santa himself along with some of his helpers.
Enjoy a Christmassy design
The Christmas feel is there right from the beginning of this game, as you spot the darkening skies behind the reels, along with a Christmas tree lit up and looking superb. The reels themselves are packed with festive symbols too, including a reindeer, Big Santa himself, and… is that Mrs Christmas? We think it might be.
How to play the Big Santa slot game
The game gets underway with the usual 5 x 3 format in play, surrounded by a string of fairy lights. You won't spot any festive progressive jackpots in this slot, but you might see some special symbols landing on the reels.
The first of these is the reindeer, and it must surely be Rudolph because of the glowing red nose. He substitutes for everything else except scatter symbols. He also pays out for three or more on a line.
The scatter shows a sack filled with gifts. There are some blocks in front of that sack, spelling the message FREE GAMES. Hmm, that does sound like a gift, doesn't it?
How many lines are there in Big Santa?
The game offers 25 fixed paylines, so make sure you're ready to bet on all of them.
Are you ready to make some wagers?
The game allows a minimum bet of a quarter per spin, covering all 25 lines. Those betting more can reach the maximum of $25 per spin.
A packed paytable supplied as usual
Spin Logic always gives players plenty of details in their paytables, and this game is no exception to that format.
Bonus features in Big Santa slots
Firstly, we have some Oversized Symbols to look for. The wild symbol, along with all major paying symbols, can appear as an Oversized Symbol. You can spot one or more on a single spin, too. The symbols can appear in 2x2 or 3x3 size, so you can cover four or nine symbol positions with one Oversized Symbol. This could mean a prize where you wouldn't normally get one, or a bigger prize than you'd have received otherwise.
Free spins on the way too?
Does Santa have any free spins in his sleigh for you? You can score 10, 15, or 20 free games from three, four, or five scatters. For each free game, you'll see a random multiplier for any prizes you manage to get on each spin. This is going to be anything from 2x to 5x, so there is more winning potential during those spins. And as you know, you might also receive some Oversized Symbols…
RTP doesn't appear
Spin Logic doesn't usually release this information, so you won't have a chance to find out what the return to player value is here.
Our rating: Did we like the Big Santa slot game?
We did - it has plenty of Christmassy action on the reels, and the Oversized Symbols certainly make the most of every spin they appear in. If you can get them inside the free games with a multiplier as well, it's even better. It certainly ranks as a 9/10 game for us.
The wild pays out the most
If you find five wilds on a line, you'll receive 500x your bet. If you do this in the free spins, with the maximum 5x random multiplier in play, you can see the potential to get much more, too.
