No matter if it’s the season to be jolly or July, this video slot is interesting to play all year round. I know nicer NetEnt slots to play to come into the festive mood, but the Aloha Christmas™ slot offers some exciting features to enjoy. Just as it’s original, the Aloha: Cluster Pays™ slot, clusters of symbols are responsible for the wins while the game is featuring Multiplier Wild symbols, Mystery symbols, Sticky Win Re-Spins, Tiki Bar Free Spins and Tiki Bar Max Free Spins as well.
NetEnt’s growing number of Christmas slots
It all started without a Christmas slot at all! For many years, Christmas slots were no option for the NetEnt fans. In 2015, NetEnt launched its first Christmas-themed slot with Fruit Shop Christmas Edition™ as the first. This game came hand in hand with Flowers Christmas Edition™, but I guess NetEnt agreed with me that it’s not cool to add snow to a sunflower, or any other flower for that matter. They belong to spring, not to the winter. The game mysteriously disappeared and the flowers now live happily ever after again. The Aloha Christmas™ slot is also a Christmas Edition, but this time players enjoy a better gameplay and a Christmas in Hawaii.
Secrets of Christmas™
I wasn’t a big fan of the Christmas Editions in the first place, the reason I was thrilled to see Secrets of Christmas™ launched in 2016. Looking for the true Christmas spirit, this Christmas slot is a must! This Christmas slot has everything Christmas used to be all about. Of course, there are presents, but even more important, there’s snow, Christmas lights, a gingerbread house, bells ringing, socks filled with candy, candles, cookies for Santa and Santa! This is what Christmas should be all about, nothing more and nothing less!
Released in 2018, the Jingle Spin™ slot brings you to Santa’s workplace where you’ll find a loud and quirky Santa Claus. He’s in the company of his helping dwarves that transfer baubles above the reels to give you the opportunity to unlock a series of festive features. I loved the game from the start and I can highly recommend it to get into the festive mood.
Santa vs Rudolf™
Ho ho ho, my favourite? The Santa vs Rudolf™ slot! It’s seriously one of the best slot creations from NetEnt as it used the gameplay from The Invisible Man™ slot. Instead of a collision between The Invisible Man and a police officer, you enjoy Santa vs Rudolf. For the first time in history, Santa isn’t a big fan of his red-nosed reindeer which leads to some funny events. Let the game speak for itself!
Aloha Christmas™ is inspired by the Hawaiian lifestyle and Hawaii’s famous Tiki has now turned into Santa. For every player that dislikes cold and winter, a Christmas in Hawaii could be a solution. Hawaii, however, is a rather expensive holiday destination, so NetEnt brings you there with the Aloha Christmas™ slot. Now everybody can enjoy a Christmas in summer with some extras even compared to its original as you can now enjoy a standard Free Spins feature as well as a MAX version!
Different coin levels and levels seem to be something of the past at NetEnt. More often, NetEnt offers a good number of bets ready to click and enjoy. In the Aloha Christmas™ slot, the lowest bet is 0.10. This shows that NetEnt targets all type of players. The fact that there is a standard Free Spins feature available and a MAX version, shows that NetEnt didn’t forget its experienced players in this Christmas slot. Hence, the high volatile MAX Free Spins feature and a maximum bet of 200.00. Players can choose between a total of almost 50 betting options.
Aloha Christmas™ slot features
Besides an extra Free Spins feature and Mystery symbols, the Aloha Christmas™ slot got an extra row as well. Of course, the game still runs on the Cluster Pays™ mechanic, like its original. We also see the Sticky Win Re-Spins back, as well as the Wild symbol, and the Free Spins feature. Wild symbols turn into Multiplier Wild symbols, good for some extra jolly good Christmas slot fun.
You play the Aloha Christmas™ slot with clusters of symbols with 9 or more in a cluster to create a win. Stacked symbols and Mystery Symbols will contribute to your winning cluster. Mystery symbols can turn into Multiplier Wild symbols, which add a chunky multiplier to your win.
A cluster win in the main game can randomly activate Sticky Win Re-Spins, that might lead to some merry wins. Symbols in the winning cluster that activated the Sticky Win Re-Spins and all other symbols of the same type visible on the reels become Sticky symbols and stick to the reels during a Re-spin.
Free Spins features in the Aloha Christmas™ slot
Three Scatter Symbols, fully or partially appearing anywhere on the reels in the main game, activates the Free Spins feature. As you can see in the above images, it’s up to you to choose whether you go for the Tiki Bar Free Spins or Tiki Bar Max Free Spins. The difference?
Tiki Bar Free Spins:
10 Free Spins
x2, x3 or x4 Multipliers
Tiki Bar Max Free Spins:
6 Free Spins
x4, x5 or x7 Multipliers
The MAX versions of slots and feature are known for their big hits. You basically choose for fewer hits but higher. Mainly experienced players choose to play the MAX version for its high win potential. Whatever feature you choose, just enjoy a lovely warm Christmas in Hawaii, available all year long!
