Festive Indulgence Theme/Symbols

With a Christmas theme, you know what you’ll get with Festive Indulgence – set against a brick wall, the reels sit on a windowsill that’s covered in snow. Symbols include A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals made from gingerbread – you’ll also see golden bells, Christmas puddings, Christmas turkeys, a female elf and Santa Claus himself.

Both the elf and Santa Claus are the most rewarding symbols – 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a payline will give you 0.33, 2.77, 11.11 or 83.33 times your total stake. The Santa Claus symbol can appear stacked on all 5 reels. The Christmas wreath is the wild symbol which replaces all symbols bar the scatter – 2, 3, 4 or 5 in combination pays 1.11, 22.22, 222.22 or 1,111.11 times your stake!

Free Spins feature

The Festive Indulgence slot comes with 1 bonus extra – the Free Spins feature. This is played when you get 3 or more Christmas present scatters anywhere on the reels – 2, 3, 4 or 5 of them will reward you with 2, 5, 20 or 500 times your stake. 3 or more will give you 15 free spins.

With all wins subject to a 3x multiplier, you can retrigger the feature (by getting 3 or more scatters on a single free spin) to give you another 15 free spins and taking your total to 30. Furthermore, the Christmas wreath wild symbol can appear stacked on all 5 reels to boost your winning potential.

Festive Indulgence closing thoughts

The Festive Indulgence slot is a simple game – however, it’s high variance so don’t expect to win big often. With the high value symbols in play, filling the reels with the high value Santa Claus or female elf symbols will give you a 750 times stake payout. If you fill the reels with wilds, you’ll win an impressive 10,000 times your stake.

Now, if you do this during the Free Spins feature, you can win up to 30,000 times your stake on every free spin – the likelihood increases too due to the stacked wilds in play. Despite being basic, it’s refreshing that a Christmas themed slot offers big win potential – I also suggest you take a look at ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers Saving Christmas which isn’t a convention Christmas slot by any means (and the better for it).
