Jingle Spin is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Net Entertainment with a Christmas theme. Playable from 20p to £200 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it’s all about the 4 different feature baubles that gives you spreading wilds, free spins, cash prizes and surprises.
Visually, Jingle Spin has a festive feel to it with Santa’s dwarves sitting above the reels (more on this below). With a Christmas tree to the left of the reel set, you’ll see Santa Claus to the right of the reels holding a lever. All symbols have hooks on them and include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as various Christmas tree decorations.
You’ll see pinecones, reindeers, bells, orange & cinnamon sticks and a red/gold bauble. The red/gold bauble is the most rewarding symbol giving you 50 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The present is the wild symbol and substitutes for all symbols to give you the best possible winning combination.
The game has a Christmas bauble wheel which is loaded by 4 different feature baubles – a Spreading Wild bauble, Free Spins bauble, Coin Win bauble and Surprise bauble. With each spin, Santa spins the wheel – if there’s something in the segment, that bauble appears on reel 5. With every spin, it shifts 1 position to the left. If you get a wild on the reel under 1 of the feature baubles, you’ll trigger the corresponding bonus feature:
- Spreading Wild feature – this is played when a wild appears under the reel where a Spreading Wild bauble is. The wild becomes a spreading wild which turns all adjacent and diagonal symbols into extra wilds.
- Free Spins feature – this is played when a wild appears under the reel where the Free Spins bauble is. You will then receive between 7 and 50 free spins (the number displayed on the Free Spins bauble)
- Coin Win feature – this is played when a wild appears under the reel where a coin amount is. You will then win the number displayed on the coin – up to 125 times your stake.
- Surprise feature – this is played when a wild appears under a reel when the Surprise Bauble is. Basically, 1 of the 3 above features is randomly played.
The best of the features is the Free Spins feature as additional free spins can be won – by lining up the Free Spins bauble with a wild during a free spin. Furthermore, you can also benefit from Spreading Wilds and coin wins during the free spins to further enhance your winning potential. Finally, all positions above the reels will have a bauble which increases your chances of winning.
Variance wise, Jingle Spin is in the middle – with maximum wins of 473.75 times your stake to be won on every spin/free spin, there’s potential to win a decent amount. If you manage to get lots of free spins, the coins can quickly mount up. The game, although different in theme, is identical in terms of gameplay to NetEnt’s EggOMatic which is a good slot.
