Winter Themed Slots Games

There are online slots games based on the summer and winter seasons. There are more games depicting summer, but that is because a significant section of the winter space is taken up by Christmas themed slot games. This article discusses two slot games that evoke the general spirit of winter.

The first slot game is Winter Wonderland from the leading online software provider Vegas Technology. The execution of the theme in this slot game is perfect. The reels are set in the background of a snowy landscape. The buttons for operating the slot game are made from snow. The Spin button takes the form of a snowman's head with a carrot sticking out. The symbols on the reels have a deep blue background with snow flakes. The symbols are chosen with care and fortunately high value card symbols have been avoided. There are three special symbols. The wild symbol is the Snowman, the scatter symbol is the Snow Flake and the bonus symbol is the Ski Jumper. The other symbols are the Snow Shovel, the Gift Box (Christmas had to creep in somehow), the Mittens, the Snow Cap, the Sled, the Ice Skates, the Ginger Bread Man, the Snow Scene and the Girl dressed up in woolens. Animations are an integral part of online slot games and Winter Wonderland has some interesting ones. The Snow Shovel moves along clearing the snow and the Gift Box opens to reveal a stuffed polar bear. The bonus game on the second screen is a lot of fun. Players are asked to pick a spot on the screen. The skier then comes from a distance, stops on the chosen spot, transforms into a snowman and gives the player bonus credits. The player gets three turns and the total credits obtained can be collected or traded for mystery credits concealed in a gift box. The game ends with a tune of Jingle Bells.

Microgaming has so many slot games in its portfolio that it will be difficult to find a theme not covered by it. The winter themed slot from Microgaming is Snow Honeys, who are a band of girls on a holiday to a ski resort. The reels are set in the winter background scene. The symbols on the reels include the three Snow Honeys, who despite the snow are somewhat provocatively dressed. Then there are the Ski Instructor and Warden. Other symbols include the much kissed cuddly Bunny, the Lodge, the Ski Lift and the Bear. The special symbols are the Snow Honeys Logo, the Castle and the Ski Resort. Snow Honeys has some excellent animations. The characters come alive when they participate in winning combinations. The Ski Instructor gives the thumbs up sign, the Warden peeks through his binoculars and the Snow Honeys get giggly. The bonus game on the second screen is a grand one. In the background is the Snow Castle with 12 windows. Players have to select five of them one at a time. In the foreground is the Bunny with a pile of snow balls. When the player has made his pick the Bunny whistles and the chosen window opens and one of the characters peeks out. The Bunny lets fly a snowball and smacks the character in the face. Each time the player gets bonus credits.

Winter Wonderland can be played in Vegas Technology online casinos like Go Casino and Millionaire Casino. Snow Honeys can be played in Microgaming online casinos like Platinum Play and Lucky Nugget.
