Traditionally Christmas is the time for giving. But everyone likes to receive gifts as well. And the Microgaming online slot game Gift Rap, which has a Christmas theme, provides an opportunity for players to win gifts. Hence it is very popular at Christmas time.
Gift Rap is a five reel, 25 payline video bonus slot with 32 winning combinations. The coin denominations vary from $0.01 to $0.50 and players can bet up to 10 coins per line or 250 coins in all. The symbols on the reels are mainly the toys traditionally given to children during Christmas. These include Monkey, Spray, Teddy Bear, Music Box, Spinning Top and Hammer. The other symbols that evoke the Christmas spirit are Bauble, Bart Elf, Max Elf and Backup Elves. The sound effects also enhance the Christmas theme. The sound of a crackling fire and the background Christmas music entice players to this online slot. When the reels spin the sound of sleigh bells indicate that Santa is approaching with his bag of gifts.
Gift Rap offers two fixed jackpots of 6,000 coins and 1,000 coins. The 6,000 coin jackpot is hit when 5 Bauble symbols line up on the reels. The Bauble is the wild symbol as well and it substitutes for all other symbols in order to make a winning combination. It does not substitute for the scatter symbol however. Also it does not multiply the payouts. The Spray symbol is the scatter symbol. It offers payouts that are multiplied by the total bet. Therefore players usually play Gift Rap with the maximum bet of $125. Three scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels give a payout of 5; four scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels give a payout of 20 and five scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels give a payout of 80.
The highlight of the Gift Rap online slot game is the bonus game on the second screen. This game, known as Gift Grab, provides the opportunity for winning gifts. The Gift Grab bonus game gets triggered when three or more Rappin’ Jack Frost symbols appear scattered anywhere on the reels. The game takes players to a second screen where they see 30 gift boxes all wrapped up. Each box has a number of credits for the player. The player can keep picking gifts and accumulating credits till they pick a gift box with Rappin’ Jack Frost inside. Once they do that the game ends. However Microgaming has been generous and has put only three Rappin’ Jack Frosts in the gift boxes. That means if a player is very luck he can pick 27 gift boxes and gather a mini fortune for his Christmas splurge.
