Christmas is the grandest of the festivals and therefore a Christmas themed online slot game must reflect that grandness. Secret Santa was a video slot released by Microgaming some years ago. It is not flamboyant, but in its quiet way it makes a grand impact. Secret Santa is live at online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and Spin Palace.
The background to the reels is a perfect Christmas Eve setting with snow falling on the rooftops of country homes. The reels have a 5x4 structure with all ways to win, leading to 1024 paylines. The high paying symbols are traditional Christmas icons. You start with a smiling Santa and go on to a decorated Christmas tree, a fire lit hearth, toys in stockings, a delicious turkey platter and an even more delicious plum pudding. The win animations bring the Christmas scenes alive. The turkey is carved, cream is poured on the plum pudding and chestnuts are roasted on the fire. The game logo is the wild symbol. It also awards the highest line payouts. The scatter symbol is the cracker. The low playing symbols are the playing card suit icons but in bright colours.
There are two bonus features in Secret Santa. 5 of a Kind Again is a unique feature and a very interesting one. Five of a kind wins without the help of a wild symbol will payout and then transform into another symbol and award an additional five of a kind win in the same spin. This feature is available only in the base game. Five wilds and five scatters will not transform. Because of the 1024 ways to win such five of a kind combinations occur quite often.
The secret aspect of the video slot comes through a randomly triggered bonus game that awards one of seven mystery bonus features. The Wild Reels feature turns up to three reels totally wild. In the Wild Boost a randomly selected symbol will be turned into an additional wild. The Free Spins feature awards 5 free spins with tripled payouts. The Mystery Multiplier multiplies all payouts by 5x or 10x. In the Dashing Wilds feature four wilds land in random reel positions. In the Scatter Spree all symbols pay as scatter symbols. The final feature is the popular Microgaming Rolling Reels that awards consecutive wins with increasing multipliers.
In Secret Santa the maximum line bet is $2 and the total bet is 50 times the line bet. Considering the number of features available this does not seem too steep. The top line payout is 800 coins and the top scatter payout is 100 coins.
