Christmas Eve Slot
Christmas Eve Slot is a 5-reel, 1,024-pay line 'all ways pay' slot from Playson. This Crimbo-themed slot was released well in time for the yuletide festivities of 2016, and added to an already hearty line up of Christmas-themed slots. We can think of NetEnt's 'Secrets of Christmas' which was released around the same time, or Playtech's 'Santa Surprise' as prime examples.
Here Playson have aimed to regale us with a beautiful-looking slot complete with some delightful bell-led Christmas-themed tunes. The symbols here are all Christmas-related of course – snow globes, gingerbread houses, candles, bells and crystal stars. The final icing on this cake as far as symbols go are gingerbread versions of playing card values ten through to ace.
This slot has four rows as opposed to the typical three, and it's an 'all ways pay slot' which means you only have to land symbols in sequence anywhere across the reels, rather in a specific pattern. This leads to a very impressive 1,024 pay lines.
You only make one bet here – a single wager per spin. The lowest wager you can place is 0.20, and the maximum is 60.00. When you're ready to check the list to see who's been naughty (and don't forget to check it twice), hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest winning payout in this game is given for any three identical playing card values. This will win you one quarter of your line bet. The biggest payout in the game is for five 'Santa Stamps' which wins you ten times your total wager.
A Christmas Present is the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbol. If one or more wilds land in a winning combination then they turn into a 'Frosty Wild' and gift you a single re-spin. Frosty Wilds freeze on the reels for your freebie spin.
If you land three or more 'Santa Stamps' scatter symbols anywhere on the reels then you activate free spins, for which you receive a guaranteed win. Before free spins begin a 'Gift Wild' symbol will appear and stick to its position on reels two, three or four for the complete duration of your free spins.
Multipliers from x1 to x5 appear on the screen when free spins start. Each win moves the multiplier up one level until it reaches x5. Once you spin with no win, the multiplier drops back down to x1.
So, how delighted would you be if you woke up on Christmas morning and found Playson's 'Christmas Eve' slot among your online casino presents? The answer we feel might be 'slightly chuffed'. There's not much too this game, but we are always in favour of any game that adopts the 'all ways pay' philosophy. Slots games that take this approach are so much easier to play than those with a fixed number of pay lines. The sight and sounds of this game are nicely Christmassy too! Why not unwrap a few spins of Christmas Eve and see how you do?
