NetEnt announces Secrets of Christmas™ slot
With 72 days left until Christmas, it’s actually no surprise that NetEnt today announces its first real Christmas video slot. It’s a bit weird to play a Christmas-themed slot while summer just ended, but the thing is that we still have to wait another month and 17 days until the Secrets of Christmas™ slot is going to be launched at the NetEnt Casinos. For this reason, it’s just a preview that has been released today with only a short description. But as always, I’m going to do my best to give you a preview review of what is going to be the first original Christmas video slot launched by NetEnt.
Christmas-themed video slots
Millions of players look forward to Christmas each year, looking for ways to get in the Christmas mood. Retailers already started to stock Christmas merchandise, the reason I could have bought my personal Christmas merchandise when in the Netherlands last weekend. I could have, but I didn’t as I do believe it’s a bit too early for that considering the fact that I’m still walking in shorts and on flip flops.
There’s no doubt that Christmas is the most popular period of the year, making Christmas-themed video slots popular as well. That’s why I am surprised NetEnt didn’t come up with such a theme earlier. It was last year that NetEnt, for the first time, introduced two Christmas-themed video slots. While NetEnt is known for its originality, there was nothing original about these two Christmas-themed video slots as two well-appreciated NetEnt slots were used and restyled. I have to admit that I was pretty disappointed, expecting more from NetEnt during this popular period.
I just couldn’t show any enthusiasm when Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition and Flowers™ Christmas Edition were launched at the end of November last year, but I have good hope for this year’s Christmas-themed video slot as the Secrets of Christmas™ slot seems like an original video slot offering a great ambiance that will bring you in the Christmas spirit for sure.
What to expect from the Secrets of Christmas™ slot
I’m happy to see that NetEnt put some more effort in their November slot this year bringing a true Christmas-themed video slot to the NetEnt Casinos. From the 30th of November, you’ll be able to play the Secrets of Christmas™ slot which brings you the classic spirit of Christmas. This year, you’ll celebrate Christmas in style with NetEnt bringing you everything Christmas should be about. No iPads, smartphones, game computers or notebooks, but old-fashioned presents that children used to love. It’s like NetEnt wants to send out a message, one that should bring back the good old times when children were delighted with simple gifts like a toy and a lollipop instead of being disappointed when they didn’t get the smartphone they asked for.
With NetEnt sending out a message, you better don’t expect a Mega Fortune™ Christmas Edition, but a classic Christmas-themed video slot including a traditional Christmas garland, warm lights, candles, decorations, hot milk and cookies. Of course, NetEnt is no Scrooge including Santa’s bag full of gifts as well, but not until several Scatters have appeared on the reels.
I used to love Christmas mornings, waking up after a restless night because you might here Santa Clause sneaking in. For some reason, I always missed out on that event, but luckily it didn’t ruin my Christmas mornings unpacking my gifts under the Christmas tree. In my country we have a Dutch Santa Claus too, bringing children their presents on the cold evening of 5th December and that’s exactly why Christmas was celebrated modestly without too many presents. That’s exactly how Christmas should be celebrated because we should not forget that spending time with your family is much more important than receiving gifts. Enjoy that hot milk with cookies in the evening surrounded by the warm light of the Christmas tree lights and candles. It’s those little moments that make Christmas, not the number of gifts under the tree. This is what Secrets of Christmas™ is all about and that’s why I feel so much more enthusiasm for this year’s Christmas-themed video slot.
Secrets of Christmas™ slot features
Playing the Secrets of Christmas™ slot as soon as it is launched at the NetEnt Casinos on 30th November, I’m sure the Christmas spirit will be there straight away. You’ll feel all Christmassy thanks to the classic sounds of Christmas, the warm ambiance that is brought onto the reels while NetEnt included some generous slot features as well.
Once you activate the Free Spins feature with the help of three or more Scatters, you’ll get a chance to activate extra Free Spins, multipliers, Wild symbols and Wild Reels. To activate the extra features, you’ll be picking some of your favourite Christmas gifts. The more Scatters, the more gifts you’ll get.
Besides the Free Spins feature, there will be Wild and Scatters, two slot features as classic as the design of the Secrets of Christmas™ bringing back the true spirit of Christmas!
