Santa Surprise

There is a real lack of quality Christmas themed online slots with the majority of them often containing dull and unrelated symbols. Santa Surprise breaks this tradition by boasting a bright and colorful design, beautifully designed symbols, and not to forget extremely rewarding bonus features – no matter whether you have been good or bad this year. Santa Surprise was actually released back in December 2010 but it remains one of the most played slots every year that passes.

If you’ve played any ‘Christmas themed slots’ before you were likely very disappointed with the poorly designed, and often unrelated symbols featured in them. This is where Santa Surprise comes to life and really gets you in that Christmas spirit with beautifully designed symbols.

The main symbol to look out for is Santa himself. The Santa symbol is Wild and substitutes for all other symbols except for the Scatter and Bonus, and offers a jaw dropping 10,000 coins should you be lucky enough to land five on a payline. Next is the Scatter symbol which is a house covered in snow, with 500 coins up for grabs for five on a payline and it is also used to activate the free spins mode. There is also a Bonus symbol (yep you guessed it, it activates the games bonus round), Christmas bells, a stocking, a present, and Ace to 10 playing card symbols which are decorated in Christmas style (Ace has a Santa hat on it, King is wrapped in a scarf, Queen has holly attached to it, Jack has a stocking hanging off it, and the 10 has Christmas candles).

Santa Surprise Bonus Features

Gamble – If you’ve played online slots before you are sure to have already come across a gamble feature. In Santa Surprise you can choose the gamble option after any base game win. When you do so you are taken to a new screen where you are presented with a playing card and must decide if it will be Red or Black when flipped over. If you guess correctly you will double your winnings, if not you lose your winnings.

Free Games – As with most Playtech free spins games in order to trigger it you will need to land three or more Scatter symbols (House) anywhere on the reels in one spin. Players are then rewarded with a total of 10 free spins, which each come with a 3x multiplier attached – a very big present!

Christmas Gifts Bonus – To trigger the Christmas Gifts Bonus Round players must land three or more Bonus symbols (Christmas tree) consecutively on a single payline. You are then taken to a different screen where there is a Christmas tree with six presents underneath it. You get to select several of these presents depending on the number of Bonus symbols you landed ie: 3 symbols = 3 presents, 4 symbols = 4 presents, 5 symbols = 5 presents. Each present contains a random prize, with varying totals, all of which are accumulated at the end of the bonus feature and added to your balance.
