Yule Be Rich is a super simple, Christmas-themed slot from 1X2 Gaming. Played using a 5 reel, 9 payline game engine, festive goodies on offer include double wild payouts and a bonus feature that awards up to 25 free spins. See what Santa delivers from between 9p and £22.50 per spin.
The design in Yule Be Rich is basic but very charming – set against a snow-capped forest, with Santa and his reindeer flying above, the reels have a suitably seasonal feel. The paylines are marked by baubles and the lower value A to 9 playing cards are done in the style of Santa hats.
They’re joined by a gingerbread man, a snowman, a gingerbread reindeer and an angel which is the top payer, awarding 750 coins for a 5-in-a-row combination. The snowflake is the wild, substituting for everything apart from the scatter – every winning payline that includes a wild will see the payout doubled.
A cheery Father Christmas is the scatter – landing 3, 4 or 5 of him on the same payline will trigger the Free Spins feature and with it, 5, 15 or 25 free spins. The double wild wins are on offer during the feature too. Look out too for the elf scatter which is added to the reels during the feature. – landing 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these anywhere on the reels will get you 10, 30, 100 or 200 coins.
We found the variance in Yule Be Rich to be in the middle – we enjoyed plentiful small wins in the base game and managed to trigger the free spins at regular intervals. It’s unlikely that Yule Be Rich will live up to its name and win you oodles of Christmas cash. It certainly has its charms though. The simple visuals are nicely done, complemented by a Casio keyboard style rendition of Jingle Bells.
The features are similarly basic – the double wild wins are a nice addition though. Trigger the free spins round and get lucky with the wilds and there could be some nice Christmas goodies heading your way. If you like Christmas themed slots, NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas is recommended.
