Take a ride on Eyecon’s festive loco in Sugar Train Xmas, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot. This Christmas-themed game comes with double wild payouts, a pair of pick’em rounds and a free spins feature where you can get up to 400 free spins. Hop aboard from between 25p and £12.50 per spin.
Just like the original Sugar Train slot, the sequel is packed fully of sugar-coated goodies. Symbols include an assortment of cakes, sweets, doughnuts, jelly babies, hearts and frogs. The most rewarding symbol features 3 Christmas pudding-style cookies – land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these and you’ll pocket 10, 100, 500 or 5,000 coins.
The Gummy Bear is the game’s wild – it replaces all other symbols apart from the scatters. When it forms part of a winning combination, the payout is doubled. It can also help trigger 1 of the 3 features on offer here. Land 3, 4 or 5 Gummy Bear wilds and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature where you’re awarded 15, 20 or 25 free spins. There’s up to 400 free spins to be won as you can retrigger up to 15 times.
Sugar Train Xmas also comes with 2 more bonus features. The Present Pick feature is played when you land 3 or more of the gift box scatter on the same spin. Depending on how many scatters triggered the feature, you’ll get 2, 3 or 5 selections. Once again, each pick can award prizes of up to 100 times your total stake. You can trigger the Present Pick feature during the base game and free spins.
Then there’s the Santa’s Station Bonus feature – you’ll see a green a white cane with lights on the top to the right of the reels. When the red light is lit, you’ll trigger this round. A train will chug below the reels and deliver 5 carriages under the reels. A claw will retrieve a cookie from each carriage. If it’s not dropped, a cash prize of up to 100 times your total stake can be won.
Like many Eyecon slots, Sugar Trains Xmas isn’t a thing of beauty – the visuals are brash, bold and saccharine sweet. If the design isn’t of the highest quality, the features do impress. Surprisingly, we found the pick’em rounds rather than the free spins offered the best winning opportunities. There’s a nice range of extras on offer here at any rate.
Sugar Train Xmas is of course a very time sensitive slot. If you’re looking for a simple, festive-themed game that offers some decent thrills, then a ride on the Sugar Train Xmas should fit the bill nicely as it offers wins of up to 400 times your stake on each spin. If you like Christmas, NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas is recommended.
