The Top 4 Christmas Themed Online Slots Before 2020
Every year when Christmas and New Year comes around, Christmas online slot themes start to get popular once again. This year there have not been too many new Christmas themed slots released, but there are still some top titles out there released over the past few years that will get you in the mood for the festive holiday period.
1. Jingle Spin Christmas Video Slot by NetEnt – 96.48% RTP
All the action and entertainment on Jingle Spin is set over 5 reels with 20 pay lines, and there is a pretty decent RTP of 96.48%. The theme on this jolly Jingle Spin slot game is based on Santa and his dwarf helpers who work together to help you trigger free spins, spreading wild symbols, and cash prizes.
It is arguably one of NetEnt’s best 3D slot designs of 2018. The game is jam-packed with well-executed animated effects in, on, and around the reels plus a flurry of features that trigger regularly thanks to the slot’s medium variance classification.
The idea of Jingle Spin is to keep on spinning in anticipation of the Christmas gift symbols landing on the reels. At the top of the reels, you will see the dwarves working together to catch and pass along baubles that contain free spins, cash prizes, and wild symbols. As soon as one of those gift symbols hits the reels, the dwarf above that reel will drop the gift he is holding into the gift box, and you get your Christmas surprise!
Top Prize: 25,000 coins
Min-Max Bet: $0.20-$40.00 per spin
2. A Christmas Carol Slot Title by BetSoft – 95.58% RTP
Betsoft created the amazing 3D animated Christmas Carol slot game in December 2015 and it has since become one of the most played online slot titles with a Christmas theme. There are 5 reels, with 3 positions in each, and 25 pay lines to spin in scatters spin bet multipliers, and plenty of wild symbols to help you notch up as many symbol combination wins as possible.
What makes this slot different is that instead of bringing a slot with Santa, reindeers, and a happy Christmas theme to the table, BetSoft focused a Christmas Carol on the classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the 3 ghosts of Christmas; present, future, and past.
You will also be able to trigger free spins in which both the Ghost of Christmas Past and Future will make sure that losing spins during the free spins bonus can be converted to winning spins at random; while the ghost of Christmas Present will place wilds all over the reels helping you connect combinations and accumulate the biggest win possible from your free spins game.
Top Prize: 500,000 coins
Min-Max Bet: $0.25-$125.00 per spin
3. Deck the Halls Online Slot by Microgaming – 95.38%
Deck the Halls is another one of our favourite Christmas slot games because of its excellent theme and superb features, plus players have the choice to bet 1 to 30 pay lines over 5 reels. This slot’s theme is centred around all the activities that happen around the Christmas Tree – roast turkey dinner, gifts, decorations, and it also has the highest potential coin payout of all the slots on this list.
Some of the features you will come across include a bonus free spins game, stacked wild symbols, and multipliers applied to wins when the wildcard symbol helps to complete wins. On top of this, any wins during the free spins game give players x2 the value of the win. When the wild completes a win during the free spins game, then the value of the combination is quadrupled.
There is plenty of fun wrapped up into what is one of Microgaming’s most famous video slots, and you might be surprised to learn that Deck the Halls was released in December 2008 making it well over a decade old, but it is still one of Microgaming’s most popularly played Christmas slot titles and Deck the Halls still remains popular over the post-Christmas and summer periods.
Top Prize: 2,400,000 coins
Min-Max Bet: $0.01-$5.00 per spin
4. Secrets of Christmas Slot by NetEnt – 96.72% RTP
We were trying to give you a list of Christmas themed slot games from a variety of software providers, but we just had to add 2 NetEnt slot games into the mix simply because Secrets of Christmas is just such a fun online slot game to play.
There are 5 reels, 25 pay lines, you have an RTP of 96.72%, which is quite high for an online slot, and you can win over 350,000 coins if you play the max bet.
This is actually quite a strange slot game because it has such a calm and gentle theme with slow spins. At first, it almost felt as if there was nothing to it, but the Secrets of Christmas slot will soon take you by surprise as it opens up, rolls through its features, pays out huge sums of cash, and then returns back to its original quiet gameplay before the next set of features trigger more mayhem on the reels.
Features include a random Wild Santa bursting onto the reels and turning losing spins into a win. However, the big wins will come from an accumulation of combination wins in the free spins game triggered by the scatter symbols.
You will be given sets of Christmas Gifts to choose from which will determine how extra free spins will be given, and you can also reveal multipliers that will be applied to any combinations you spin in during the free spins bonus game. Other Christmas gifts will include the chance to accumulate more wins when reels 2 and 4 turn into wild reels!
Top Prize: 350,000 coins
Min-Max Bet: $0.25-$50.00
