We’re less than two weeks away from Christmas, a day many people will be in the festive spirit. Shopping malls are often decorated with the most beautiful Christmas lights and Christmas trees will definitely add to the festive atmosphere as well. Then there’s the traditional Christmas music to listen to while also NetEnt is offering a way to get into the perfect festive spirit. Over the years, the Swedish software supplier added four video slots to its game offering including the newest Jingle Spin™ video slot. Keep reading to find a summary of each Christmas video slot launched by NetEnt in the past years.
Jingle Spin™ video slot
Considering the fact that NetEnt was established in 1996, I guess we can say that it took NetEnt quite a while to launch its first Christmas video slot. It was at the end of 2015 that NetEnt brought two Christmas-themed video slots to the NetEnt Casinos launching Flowers™ Christmas Edition and Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition. Secrets of Christmas™ followed in December 2016, bringing a true Christmas video slot. Not a fan of the first two Christmas slots, I was delighted to see a real Christmas video slot entering the NetEnt Casinos. However, truly excited I was when another new slot was launched this year with the Jingle Spin™ video slot being the fourth Christmas video slot.
The Secrets of Christmas™ video slot offered a way nicer Christmas slot than the two games launched in 2015 with the traditional milk and cookies, a house of gingerbread, Christmas stockings, candles, garlands, and a Coca-Cola type of Santa Claus. So if looking for a traditional Christmas, I can highly recommend the Secrets of Christmas™ video slot.
My personal favourite, though, is Jingle Spin™ and this game brings a funny Christmas atmosphere to the reels. That’s great, but what makes this game even better is the innovative gameplay offering a loud and quirky Santa Claus and helping dwarves transferring baubles above the reels giving you the opportunity to unlock a series of festive features. These slot features include Wild Baubles, Coin Win Baubles, Surprise Baubles, Spreading Wild Baubles, Wilds, and Free Spins Baubles with up to 50 Free Spins to be activated.
This video slot celebrates the holiday mood as it spreads joy with its feel-good graphics and Christmassy soundtrack, perfect to get into the true festive spirit in the days up to Christmas.
Secrets of Christmas™ video slot
Even though I like the Jingle Spin™ video slot the most, I won’t hesitate to recommend the Secrets of Christmas™ video slot either as this game is bringing a traditional Christmas to the reels. While you enjoy a series of nice video slot features, you can also enjoy a few typical aspects that fit a traditional Christmas. First, you’ll meet a Coca-Cola type of Santa Claus, but that’s not all as there will be hot milk for his reindeer friends too. To add to that, you’ll find gingerbread house on the reels and together with the stockings and an overload in presents, it won’t take long to captive all the feel-good parts of Christmas.
Playing the Secrets of Christmas™ video slot at the NetEnt Casinos, you get a chance to unpack gifts from under the Christmas tree as soon as you activate the exciting Pre-Free Spins Bonus. Once you have unwrapped all your presents, 10 or more Free Spins will be awarded while you settle down next to the fireplace and listen to a medley of classic holiday tunes.
Flowers™ Christmas Edition
Initially, the NetEnt developers thought that a snowman and a Christmas tree next to the reels was enough to create a Christmas-themed game. I can imagine they didn’t want to invest too much time in a seasonal slot as the game will only attract players during a short period of time. However, Christmas is Christmas which means players will always look for a video slot to get into the Christmas spirit.
That’s why NetEnt decided to launch two existing NetEnt video slots, turned into Christmas slots. One of them is the Flowers™ Christmas Edition in which you’ll see snowflakes falling onto the flowers. No original Christmas video slot, but at least this one is offering a medium/high volatility game which could end up in high winnings.
While the flowers are blooming as if it’s springtime, snowy business is waking up the flowers from a sunny dream. It seems Christmas has arrived taking the flowers by surprise. Some flowers more amused than the others by this act of cruelty, I’m sure you’ll be amused by the Double symbols available in Flowers™ Christmas Edition, perfectly combined with regular Wilds and Stacked Wilds during Free Spins.
The Double symbol is what makes this game interesting and they will occur in both the main game and during Free Spins. A Double symbol is behaving the same as two individual symbols and that’s why your chances to win go way beyond the usual maximum five slot symbols as five times a Double symbol results in a maximum of ten symbols. As a result of that, a payout of up to an amazing x2000 becomes available, multiplied by the coin value you are playing with. Add to that an x3 Multiplier and Stacked Wilds in Free spins, and this seasonal video slot can bring attractive wins welcome during an expensive month like December.
Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition
A true treat in summer, the summer fruits in Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition seem to be hibernating. Covered in snow and ice, they differ from the original version. Thanks to the snowman and Christmas tree, you’ll be treated a festive design. Just like the spring-themed version of the game, this Christmas Edition is offering a fast-paced video slot with a simple gameplay.
Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition brings many Wild substitutions, linked to an x2 Multiplier while a Multiplier of x2during Free Spins as well. In this seasonal video slot, Wild symbols will substitute for all other symbols during both the main game and Free Spins where it will appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. When a Wild symbol is involved in a winning combination, winnings will be doubled and if fruit symbols are involved, Free Spins will be awarded as well. Up to five Free Spins can be awarded within each spin in which wins will be multiplied by a x2 Multiplier.
