Many years I have been waiting for a Christmas-themed slot that would bring Christmas and fun together on the reels. In 2015, when NetEnt launched its first video slots in Christmas style, I wasn’t much impressed. Little effort brought the Fruit Shop™ Christmas Edition and Flowers™ Christmas Edition to the NetEnt Casinos. All players really got was either some fruit or flowers, a snowman or Christmas tree, and a few layers of snow. Not what I expected from NetEnt’s first Christmas video slot, but at least Flowers™ Christmas Edition is bringing a high-volatility game mixed with some Christmas spirit.
A year went by and NetEnt came up with a better Christmas game as the Secrets of Christmas™ slot truly shows NetEnt put more effort to make it a proper Christmas slot. This time, players were treated a traditional Christmas as if going back in time with milk and cookies, a house of gingerbread, Christmas stockings, candles, garlands, and a Coca-Cola type of Santa Claus. While enjoying a traditional Christmas on the reels, you’ll be treated a medium/high volatility slot as well.
While the Secrets of Christmas™ slot was a huge improvement to the attempt the year before, I was convinced NetEnt could do a better job with such a talented team of developers available. However, I also understand that Christmas-themed video slots have no priority as the games won’t be popular all year round. That’s most probably why NetEnt decided to skip 2017 as it was in 2018 that NetEnt launched its 4th Christmas slot.
I was totally right, thinking NetEnt could do better as the Jingle Spin™ slot brings a great mix of Christmas and fun to the reels. And whoever remembers the Boom Brothers™ slot will agree that the Santa could be a reincarnation of one of the Boom Brothers, and he brought some elves with him. Five of them and they are of great help. They might be wrapping presents when no player is playing the Jingle Spin™ slot, but when somebody’s asking their attention opening this Christmas video slot, they’re helping out NetEnt’s Santa.
While NetEnt to decided to bring some true Christmas fun to the reels, including some new funny slot characters, you can also expect a pretty innovative gameplay including Wild Baubles, Coin Win Baubles, Surprise Baubles, Spreading Wild Baubles, Wilds, and Free Spins Baubles with up to 50 Free Spins to be activated.
Although Santa is the most generous person on this planet, playing the Jingle Spin™ slot won’t be for free and presents won’t be awarded for free. You can always play this NetEnt for free, but no real wins will be awarded. To get to this point, you must play with real money. Fortunately, a 0.10 bet is already enough to play the Jingle Spin™ slot. This while players who like to play a bit more risky can play with bets up to 200.00. Ten bet levels and seven different coin values make it possible to pick any bet between the minimum and maximum bet.
Jingle Spin™ slot features
I appreciate NetEnt for not overdoing the Christmas details and therefore you don’t have to be worried you become insane by too many jingle bells! I also appreciate NetEnt for overdoing things sometimes as no player will complain about the many Baubles this game is enriched with. It’s all about the Baubles in the Jingle Spin™ slot and no one better than Santa himself is in charge of the Christmas Bauble Wheel. Of course, with the help of his little elves with each elf being in charge of a reel.
The Christmas Bauble Wheel will present awards such as Wild Baubles, Coin Win Baubles, Surprise Baubles, Spreading Wild Baubles, Wilds, and Free Spins Baubles. The excitement increases when you wait to see which baubles land in the Wild symbol below, triggering the prize contained in the bauble.
The game truly fits the name Jingle Spin™ with every spin bringing the joy we’re all looking for during the festive season. Santa is ready to swing the Christmas Bauble Wheel while his elves are ready to forward the baubles. Click the spin button to spin the reels while Santa will be responsible for the bonus wheel to turn. What will be happening with the baubles from the Christmas Wheel is up to the Wild symbols. The baubles will be transferred from right to left by the elves and a bauble will be dropped by the elf if a Wild symbol appears on a reel and the elf above is holding a bauble.
- Wild symbols substitute for the highest possible winning combination on a bet line. The feature contained in the bauble held by the helping elves above the reels is activated when a Wild symbol appears randomly on the reel below.
- Spreading Wild baubles are activated when the Spreading Wild Bauble drops onto a regular Wild symbol appearing on the reels and substitute for all symbols except for regular Wild symbols. Spreading Wild symbols substitute for the highest possible winning combination on a bet line.
- Free Spins Baubles held by the helping elf directly above a Wild symbol will activate the number of Free Spins displayed on the bauble.
- The coin win amounts are multiplied by the bet level in addition to winning bet lines.
- The Surprise Bauble contains any of the feature baubles.
