Where to play?
Merry Xmas may just be one of the best Christmas slot machines that you can play today, and I’m especially talking about the titles that have a traditional approach to this theme, and a great design to go with it. It’s offered by Play n Go, a developer that isn’t at its first attempt at a Christmas themed slot.
Merry Xmas benefits from the presence of up to 15 active lines, placed on 5 reels. The betting range is unusual since it doesn’t have rounded up numbers, maxing out at $18.75, with a starting point from $0.01. The line bet can reach $1.25, using 5 coins of $0.25 in that scenario.
Theme & Developer
As far as Christmas themed slots go, you don’t typically expect them to vary too much in the things they have to show you, and this one doesn’t do that either. There are certain things that we associate with the Christmas period, things like decorations, sweets, reindeer or presents, plus a healthy dose of snow or a roaring fire.
Most of these are present in Merry Xmas as well, but what sets this game apart is the excellent quality of the design and the number of details that were used in every single image. You don’t even get filler symbols here, so there are no card suits, gems or poker cards. I think it deserves to be considered among the best Christmas slot machines, especially if the graphics are important to you this time of the year.
Play n Go has close to 100 slot machines released so far, and a very good number of those are of the highest quality, especially if you check out the releases from the last couple of years. I’ve often been impressed with their newer releases, and in fact Merry Xmas will give you a good idea of what they can accomplish in this area. The rest of the action in their games tends to be good as well.
Base Game Features
An impressive feature of Merry Xmas comes via the wild symbol. This symbol is going to be used only as a replacement, and so you don’t seem to get any direct payouts from it. The thing that makes it special is the multiplier that it applies, which appears in its image and which varies from 2x to 5x. There is one symbol that the wild will not replace, and that is obviously the other feature trigger, the bonus symbol.
Bonus Game Features
Accessing the bonus game is a matter of having three scatter symbols, each one with a different gift box, on the reels 1, 3 and 5. If they’re all visible, then a bonus game will trigger and you will have to choose from the three symbols. The one you pick will open up and reveal to you what prize you won. The most you can get with its help is 150 times your wager for the round.
Santa’s symbol is capable of giving the player a jackpot of up to $15,625, but in order for that to happen a 5x multiplier needs to assist it as well.
Merry Xmas is one of the better designed Christmas themed slots that I’ve seen released so far, and the features are at least decent, including high multipliers and one or two other bonuses.Play Now With €600 + 200 Free Spins Welcome Package
