You’ll feel as though Christmas has come early with NetEnt’s Jingle Spin slots game. Deck the halls, as you get into the Christmas spirit with this seasonal slot game that joins the long list of Christmas themed slot games out there.
Visually the game is stunning with everything you would expect from a Christmas themed game such as tree decorations symbols, Christmas trees and elves, and that is accompanied by a festive soundtrack that will have you reaching for the eggnog in no time.
The game comes with 20 fixed paylines, with 20 pay symbols and the obligatory wild symbol, which is represented by a gift box with a red bow that substitutes all other symbols and there is no scatter symbol. The lower-ranked paying symbols are playing cards ranging from 10 to Ace, whilst some of the higher winning symbols are the Christmas tree decorations.
This is a medium variance slot game, that allows you to set up to 1,000 consecutive spins on the auto spin function, but which also allows the user to set when that run should stop and comes with a Return to Player stat of a generous 96.48%. The minimum bet is $/€/£0.20 with the maximum limit set at $/€/£200, so there it should appeal to both the casual gamer and the more serious punter who has a bit more cash to spend.
There is the potential to win close to 1000x the initial stake, and a five of a kind winning line will pay anywhere from 2.5x to 50x the initial stake depending on which symbols you land on a payline.
Jingle Spins comes with a nice surprise, and who doesn’t like a surprise at Christmas? The bonus feature Christmas Bauble Wheel contains extra symbols and surprise baubles, and Papa Elf turns the wheel on every spin. When a bauble lands on the arrow when the wheel comes to a halt it is handed down to one of Papa Elf’s little helpers. With each subsequent spin, the bauble will move across the reels from right to left, unless a wild appears on the reel below in which case the elf will crack open the bauble to reveal a special bonus. These bonuses range from free spins to instant cash coin wins, so it is well worth looking out for the Christmas Bauble Wheel bonus feature.
When you land a wild symbol underneath a green free spin bauble this will activate the free spin feature that will reward you with a number of free spins ranging from seven to 50, and more green baubles can appear giving you even more free spins.
Although the Jingle Spin slot game is not going to win any awards in the originality department, there is enough here to keep you entertained, and it is one of the better Christmas themed slot games on the market.
