A tree surrounded by glittering Christmas gifts is appropriately at the center of the bonus feature of the NetEnt slot Secrets of Christmas.
This bonus round features a minimum of 10 free spins, but if you’ve been nice instead of naughty, your bonus can include a lot more than that.
Secrets of Christmas Slot Layout
This 25-line video slot features the usual five reels with three symbols visible on each.
The holiday-themed symbols start with Santa as a wild symbol. Combinations with the bell symbol are the most valuable, followed by a candle, gingerbread house, milk and cookies, and a holiday stocking. The playing card ranks from 9 to Ace provide the rest of the symbol set. The bet is fixed at 25 coins for the 25 paylines.
One of the most charming special touches of this Christmas slot occurs when you have a decent size win, and the win is presented in a Christmas wreath.
Secrets of Christmas Bonus Feature
To trigger the game’s bonus feature, you need to get at least three of the scatter symbols.
The bonus begins by awarding ten free spins with a normal 1X multiplier.
Presents under the tree
But before the bonus spins begin, you get a chance to massively improve your bonus with a visit underneath the Christmas tree. You get to choose among the presents under the tree and win extra benefits for your bonus round.
How many gifts you get to pick depends on how many scatter pay symbols you had in the triggering spin.
- Catch 3 scatter pays: Pick 3 Christmas gifts.
- Catch 4 scatter pays: Pick 4 Christmas gifts.
- Catch 5 scatter pays: Pick 5 Christmas gifts.
What might be inside the wrapping paper?
Inside each gift you will find one of four different kinds of bonus features.
- Free Spins: Get an extra 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 spins added to your total.
- Multipliers: Get an extra 1X or 2X added to your current multiplier.
- Wild Reels: Wild symbols cover reel 2 and/or reel 4 during all the free spins.
- Additional Wilds: Candle and/or Bell symbols become wild for the free spins.
By the end of the gift opening, hopefully you’ll have even more spins with a bigger multiplier.
During my spin, I ended up with 17 free spins at 2X.
Holiday-themed slots usually fall flat with me, but this one has a little more polish than most. I found the extra touches sufficiently charming to make this one worth a spin or three.
