Top Christmas-Themed Slots

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner! Soon the fat man in the red suit will be squeezing down chimneys all over the world to deliver gifts to his most adoring fans.

 

 

 

 

Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s jolly, filled with friends and family and it signals that a new year is nearly upon us. But let’s be honest here — we all love a bit of Christmas but absolutely no one loves the dark, dim and freezing days that accompany it. This year, we may be spending a lot more time at home than we’re used to — so we thought we’d put together a list of the best online slots to keep you entertained over the festive season!

These are our favourite Christmas-themed slots to give you some festive cheer.

Very Merry Christmas

Game Overview

Very Merry Christmas is the ultimate Christmas-themed slot machine. Brought to you by Eyecon, this is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot machine decked in red, green and white. Bonus rounds, free spins and high-paying symbols abound!

How to Play

Like most online slots, you are looking to match symbols across the reels. If you land the letters M, E, R, R, Y in a row you’ll win the ultimate prize of the max £3,000 jackpot. 

You can expect a Horse, Train, Car, Squirrel, Christmas globes, Gifts, ABC Cube, Teddy and letters M, E, R, R, Y for the symbols. 

The wooden horse has the highest payout and if you land five, you win the 1,000x maximum base game jackpot. The ABC Cube and Squirrel are the lowest value symbols.

Graphics

Everything about this game shouts Christmas, from its colour theme to the symbols and the adornment of holly wreaths, pinecones and everything else that encompasses the magical Christmas cheer.

Features

The wild symbol is the snow globe and it will double winning combinations if it lands on reels two and four.

Very Merry Christmas has two scatter symbols: the red gift-wrapped box, which will trigger the Match & Win bonus and the green gift-wrapped box which unlocks the Prize Pick bonus.

Bonuses & Jackpots

Keep an eye out for the two bonuses mentioned above: Match & Win and Prize Pick, as well as the bonus round Gamble Feature.

Fruit Shop Christmas

Game Overview

Fruit is pretty much the most popular theme in slot machines, but to keep it exciting, NetEnt has peared it up with Christmas (see what we did there). This 5 reel, 15 payline Fruit Shop Christmas slot game is sure to get you in the festive spirit (and you’ll probably want to snack on some fruit too).

How to Play

Oranges, Lemons, Melons, Plums and Cherries and the usual high-ranking cards are there to be matched up! It’s a straightforward game and you can pick from the 0.01 to 1.00 Coin Value Field.

Graphics

Think of a little shop that sells ice fruit. You’ll find snow on the ground, holly on the title and a Christmas tree and snowman to keep you company. 

Features

The wild symbol is the game’s logo and it will stand in for any of the other symbols to form a winning combination and double your payout.

Bonuses & Jackpots

There’s no scatter symbol in this game and instead, you can look out for a free spins feature. Land 2 - 5 Cherry symbols and you’ll get 1, 2, or 5 free spins. 3, 4 or 5 of the Plum, Lemon, Orange or Melon symbols will also bring you 1, 2 or 5 free spins. Any winning combination with corresponding symbols will give you more free spins.

Secrets of Christmas

Game Overview

If you’ve ever fancied a trip to Santa’s cabin in the North Pole, then Secrets of Christmas is your chance. A winter wonderland awaits for those looking to win this Christmas.

How to Play

Coin values range from £0.01 to £0.50 — pick one or just press the Max Bet button. Pick between Level 1 and 10 of the Level Field and press AutoPlay to take advantage of 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 750, or 1000 automated game rounds.

Graphics

The reels have a snow-covered window as the background and you’ll be surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights and holly decorations. Symbols include Santa, Santa’s Sack Filled with Toys, Bells, Candles, a Gingerbread House, Milk and Cookies, Christmas Socks, and cards 10, J, Q, K, and A.

Features

In this game, Santa himself is the wild symbol and he’ll pop in to replace all other symbols (not the scatter) to create winning combinations. The scatter comes in the form of a sack of toys, and if you get 3 or more in any position, you’ll trigger 10 free spins.

Santa’s Wild Ride

Game Overview

Most people picture Santa in a sleigh, but Santa’s Wild Ride puts him in a badass motorcycle for this game that has 5 reels and 243 ways to win.

How to Play

Pick between 1 and 100 coins on the Coins field or the Max Bet button. The 243 ways of winning cannot be altered at all. You could also choose the Auto Spin button, which will do the hard work for you. Match up the symbols (hopefully the high-value ones) and win with Santa’s Wild Ride.

Graphics

The North Pole acts as the background, and you’ll spy a beautiful full moon and Christmas lights adorning the reels. The Christmassy symbols include the North Pole, Santa himself, Mrs Claus, the elf, mince pies, Santa’s Wild Ride logo, a sandwich, a Christmas pudding, keys, beer, Santa’s bike, and cookies.

Features

The logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes for any other symbol, except the scatter, to create winning combinations. Get a winning combination with the wild and you’ll get a random multiplier of up to 4x. 

The key symbol is the scatter and if you get two or more on the grid, you could get up to 50x your amount. Three or more scatters and the free spins feature is launched, and you’ll get a minimum of 25 free spins. You’ll also get to choose between the three bonus features below.

Bonuses & Jackpots

  • Expanding Wild – The Wild on the reels expands to cover the entire reel.
  • Trailing Wild – The Wild on the reels expands downward after each successive spin.
  • Stacked Wild – You can win a lot of stacked wilds appearing on all 5 reels.

Santa vs. Rudolf

Game Overview

Rudolph the rascal they will call him from now on! He’s stolen Santa’s hat and the usually cheerful, chubby man is fuming. Guess we’ll have to get it back from him in the Santa vs. Rudolf slot from NetEnt. 

How to Play

Choose your stakes from as little as 0.20 to 1.00 and customise the bet level further by choosing between 1 to 10 on the Level Field. You could also just switch on the AutoPlay and relax with some eggnog while the reels spin for you.

Symbols include letters to Santa, snow globes, reindeer, collars, a sack of gifts and the sleigh. As well as A, K, Q, J and 10 made from a candy cane.

Graphics

Imagine you’re sitting on Santa’s porch overlooking the alpine tundra of the snowy North Pole. All looks peaceful until you notice the quarrel going on between Santa and Rudolph who are positioned on each side of the reels.

Features

As expected, Rudolph and Santa are both wild symbols in this game and either can substitute for any symbol except the scatter to form a winning combo. Rudolph will only appear on reel 1 and Santa on reel 5. Every re-spin makes Rudolf move a reel to the right and Santa a reel to the left. 

If both of the wilds join in position they become one symbol that is locked in place. This will trigger 10 free spins. If you merge 3 of the wilds then you are up for 30 free spins. If you merge them during the free spins, you’ll get even more free rounds.

Bonuses & Jackpots

You can fill up your Santa or Rudolph metre with the number of wilds that you get. Fill up the Santa metre and you can choose between three prizes. Fill up the Rudolph-meter and you’ll get three free spins.

Sugar Train Xmas

Game Overview

Christmas is probably the only time of year where it’s completely acceptable to overindulge and with the Sugar Train Xmas 5 reel and 25 payline slot game, you’re expected to do just that. Eyecon brings us this sugary Christmas treat perfect for this time of year.

How to Play

You can stake 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40 and 50 coins per payline. Choose to play 10, 20, 50 or 100 consecutive spins or simply hit the Auto Spin button and let technology do its thing. Symbols are the rainbow, sugar train chocolate, gummy bear, frog, 3 gummy bears, doughnuts, chocolate bars, heart-shaped treats, candies, mints, sweets, and cupcakes.

Graphics

You’re in for a sugary treat with a whole host of candies in the reels, all set in a snowy background with a whole heap of magical Christmas decorations all around.

Features

The gummy bear is the wild and will substitute for all the symbols other than the scatter. A wild in a winning combination will double your prize value. 3, 4, or 5 wilds will trigger a free spins feature.

Bonuses & Jackpots

Santa’s Sugar Train can be triggered during any round and you get to claw out the sweets from the train, which have varying values. Three or more symbols will trigger a Present Pick Feature.

Xmas Cash

Game Overview

Everyone loves cash and everyone loves Christmas and so this is an excellent combination for a slot. It’s brought to us by Eyecon and it’s got 3 reels and 9 paylines to help you form your winning combinations.

How to Play

Match 3 symbols and get paid out according to your stake size and the symbol value. You can adjust the lines and reels by using the slider to customise it to your liking. 

Graphics

This game certainly gives off a Christmas feel with a green pine background, a stunning Christmas tree decorated with golden baubles and a golden star on top. The symbols in this game include the Xmas cash logo, a bell, a Christmas tree, a snowflake, a Christmas cake, a red and white Christmas sock, the head of a snowman, and Rudolph.

Features

You’ll want to get three logos to get awarded 1,000 coins, three Santa Claus for 300 coins and three of Rudolph for 100 coins. The logo also acts as a wild and will substitute for everything except the scatters, which are the Christmas tree and bell symbols.

Bonuses & Jackpots

You’ll get the Free Games Bonus with three or more bell symbols and this means eight free games and prizes for this line, and your scatter wins are x3. Three or more of the Christmas tree and you’ll trigger the Prize Pick Bonus, where you’ll get up to three picks. You’ll get a double or nothing option in the Gamble bonus.

Merry Xmas

Game Overview

Play N’ GO developed Merry Xmas — a 5 reel, 9 payline slot with everything Christmassy adorning your screen. Think snow, holly, bells and anything else in between.

How to Play

Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more matching symbols land adjacent to each other on the paylines. Winning combinations start from reels 1, 2, and 3. 

Graphics

Two candles burn on both sides of the gameplay, while animated snow falls on pine trees in the background. The symbols include a gift box, a Christmas mulled drink, Christmas bells, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, a hard candy stick, candles, Christmas baubles, and Santa Claus himself.

Features

4 wild multipliers can appear on reel three and could multiply your payout value by 2, 3, 4 or 5x. The wild can replace any symbol except the bonus symbol for winning combinations that will boost the wild symbol with a multiplier of 2, 3, 4 or 5x.

Bonuses & Jackpots

Land 3 Christmas gift symbols in any position in your reels and you’ll activate the Pick a Prize feature. You can pick one gift to earn a prize. You also get the opportunity to multiply your prize with an optional gambling round.

Xmas Joker

Game Overview

Xmas Joker is a festive 3 reels, 5 payline online video slot designed by Play’n GO that does everything to remind you that although it’s a special time of year, Christmas can be fun too.

How to Play

Choose coin values using the gingerbread man for amounts between £0.10 and £0.20. The five paylines are fixed and active during every spin. You can also choose between 10 and 50 automatic spins. As usual, the aim of the game is to get three or more symbols adjacent to each other in the reels.

Graphics

The colour theme is distinctly festive with a green background with red ribbons, and it has symbols such as stars, bells, holly, colourful candy canes, gingerbread men and the Xmas Joker.

Features

Xmas Joker has no wilds, but you can earn 50x your stake value if you get 3 star symbols on a payline. 3 bells will give you 40x and holly will give you 30x. 3 gingerbread men and 3 candy cane ribbons will give you 10x your initial stake.

Bonuses & Jackpots

You can get 10 free spins when you land three of the scatters, which are the Xmas Jokers. If you get two Xmas gift symbols during the free round you’ll get 100x your total stake value. Look for three Xmas gifts during a free spin and you’ll get 10 more free spins.
