From interesting genres to top quality gameplay, Play’N Go has a well earned reputation as one of the most consistent designers out there. Once again they seem to have delivered with another great slot experience.
Christmas is a time for family, friends, good food and of course slots. With this slot PlayNGo have borrowed some of that Christmas spirit. The game is rigged out with all the festive cheer as you can imagine. The reels are themed with candy canes, snow globes, snowmen, big creamy hot chocolates and even appearances from the big man himself, Santa Claus. The backdrop is a brick topped house and snow capped mountains in the backdrop to ensure you’re wrapped up in the Christmas spirit. It’s a great looking game and whether you’re playing in December or just looking to get into the Christmas spirit early it’s sure to give players that warm ‘christmassy’ feeling.
The game has five reels and four rows, with one to fifty paylines. The game includes 13 symbols, six of which are lower paying. It has a max jackpot of 4,000x, while the RTP is a reasonable 96.50%.
The Xmas Magic slot comes with a Santa Claus scatter symbol. Landing three of these on reels 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously will trigger the Free Spins feature with 10 free spins and a 4 times stake cash prize. On every free spin, two new wilds are added on reels 2 through 5. This creates large stacks of wilds on every reel.
If you get 3 Santa Claus scatters again (on reels 1, 2 and 3) you will trigger the feature which will give you another 10 free spins – taking your total to 20. This will lead to huge stacks of wilds for huge wins hopefully. Furthermore, an extra high paying symbol is randomly chosen to appear stacked 4-high for even more wins.
Central to the game is the free spins feature which is activated when three or more Santa scatter symbols on any reel. Players will be awarded anywhere from five to ten free spins and during the spins two wilds are added to the reels 2-5. You can also re-trigger during spins by landing 3 more scatters. This bonus has actually already been done in a previous game by the provider. Which is disappointing as it is just nothing new again.
Although this might not be one of PlayNGo’s best or well designed slots, Xmas Magic Pokie is still a good play.The background and graphics may be a little basic, however it is sure to get players into the Christmas spirit. The controls and bonuses are good, while the maximum win pot and RTP ensure that players can hope for some Christmas cheer from this game as well.
