<h1>The Best Online Slots with Santa!</h1>
Playing slots online that have a Santa theme is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. No matter how busy you are making plans for the holiday season, working out what you’re going to cook on the day itself or making sure you haven’t left anyone off your present list, spinning the reels with a rosy-cheeked Santa Claus looking back at you with a twinkle in his eyes is bound to put a smile on your face!
Even if you usually prefer to play online bingo, you might want to change things up a bit this time around, so we’ve put together a list of the best slot games to play with a Santa theme – enjoy picking your favourite!
Push Gaming set out to please when developing this game, which draws inspiration from all the bright colours and festivities of the holiday season. Fat Santa’s 5x5-reel grid is filled with bright, Christmassy symbols, and the background is simply captivating.
This title is set in front of a snow-covered log cabin with a wreath on the door and Christmas presents half-buried in snow on the roof. The reels sport symbols that include the playing card royals decked out in tree baubles, and the higher-value snowman, Rudolph (the red-nosed reindeer, as if you needed reminding), and elf. All the symbols are rendered as cute cartoons, and this includes the jolly man, Santa himself.
For a winning combination, land any 3 matching symbols on the same payline. When you land a Santa symbol, the merry man flies over the reels in his sleigh, leaving pie symbols in his path. When one or more of these pie symbols land on the reels, they will lock into place and act as wilds to help you land winning combinations. During the free spins round, if any more Christmas pie symbols land on the reels, Santa will gobble them up and get fatter with each free spins round.
This online slot’s top prize is 6,405x your stake – or 160,000 coins if you’re playing at max bet. The RTP (return to player) is 96.45%, which makes this a medium-volatility slot where lower-value wins are more frequent, but then there may also be an occasional big bonus payout.
Help Santa unload his riches against a backdrop of snow and sparkling Northern Lights in this 5x3-reel slot with 20 paylines, which pay left to right. But that’s not all Santa’s Riches is about. You could unlock a 6-reel, 5-row game with 50 win lines that pay in both directions for more ho, ho, ho, festive fun. Game developer Greentube has created an engaging cartoon-style slot game with plenty of action in the form of reel expansions, cascading wins, free spins and colossal mystery symbols.
Look out on the reels for the classic A-10 royal playing cards, tree baubles, stockings, crackers, candy canes, bells, a Christmas present and – of course – jolly old Santa again. You will need to land 3 or more matching symbols on a payline to make a winning combination.
When you start to play Santa’s Riches, you’ll see that half of the reels are frozen in ice – your aim is to heat them up with wins. Not only does each win thaw out part of the reels, it also triggers an arrow at the top of the game. If you trigger up to 4 arrows, Santa will reward you with 5 free games and an extra Christmas present (the mystery symbol); if you light up 5 arrows, the Christmas present symbol will appear in stacks. Illuminate 6 arrows and you’ll trigger the “Mega Christmas Present” symbol, which covers 2x2 positions. Seven arrows trigger the “Colossal Christmas Present”, which occupies 3x2 positions. Since this is a cascading-reels slot, each win explodes the matching combination, and more symbols tumble from above to fill in the gaps.
This is a low- to medium-volatility slot with an RTP of 95.25%.
<h2>Santa vs Rudolf</h2>
This NetEnt offering delivers a simple but satisfying holiday-themed online slot with a cartoon design and generous free spins that add another level of gameplay.
If you’ve had enough of the Christmas shopping and never-ending cheer, you’ll want to give this title a try… because there’s no jolly Santa here – bah humbug indeed! The lower-paying symbols are candy canes shaped like a 10, J, Q, K, and A, while the higher-paying symbols are a letter to Santa, a reindeer snow globe, Rudolph’s collar, Santa’s presents sack, and his sleigh. The wild scatters are an irritable-looking Rudolph and an angry Santa (well, they’ve both got some serious deadlines to meet, after all)! When combined, these symbols activate the free spins round.
With a 5x3 reel and 20 fixed paylines, Santa vs Rudolph has an RTP of 96.25% plus a wide bet-per-spin range of £0.20 to £400, which should suit most players’ bankrolls.
Developed by Daub Games, Santa’s Stash is set at the North Pole, with graphics that deliver all the appeal of the holidays. Symbols on the reels of this final slot in our list include a snowflake, stocking, gingerbread man, snow globe, candy cane, a stash of gold, tree baubles, teddy bear, reindeer, holly leaf, letter to Santa and Santa himself, bien sûr.
You’ll want to keep a lookout for the snowflake – the game’s wild symbol. When this lands (softly, we’d imagine) on the reels, it replaces all other symbols to increase the chances of landing winning combinations. A bonus round also forms part of the action when 3 or more Santa symbols appear on the reels – this triggers the free spins feature. During the bonus round, players get to choose from five presents waiting at the fireplace. Open the right gift and you could land up to a 10x multiplier. Pick the wrong one, though, and you’ll be sent back to the base game, empty-handed.
This popular 5x3-reel, 25 fixed-payline slot has an RTP of 94%.
