Head to Lapland and join Father Christmas and his helpers in Santa. It’s a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Pragmatic Play that comes with a pick me feature that offers prizes of up to 250 times your stake as well as a free spins round with stacked wilds. Say ho, ho, ho on all devices from between 20p and £100 per spin.

The design in Santa has a simple, cartoon feel – with a snow-capped forest in the background, the red reels include A to 10 playing cards alongside candy canes, bells and a reindeer. The best standard symbol is Santa’s elf who awards 20 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline.

The bearded figure of Santa is the wild – he can land on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 and replaces everything apart from the scatter and bonus symbols. There are 2 bonus features to look forward to in Santa – they are as follows:

Bonus Game feature – land 3 of the gift box scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously to trigger this feature. You’ll be taken to a new screen and shown a selection of 12 presents. Keep on picking until you find a jackpot symbol – there are 4 of these:

  • Mini = 10x your total stake
  • Minor = 25x your total stake
  • Major = 50x your total stake
  • Grand = 250x your total stake

Free Spins feature – you’ll need to find 3 Christmas tree scatters to trigger the second bonus round. As well as a payout equal to double your total stake, you’ll also get 5 free spins. These are played out on a new set of reels. The Santa wild can land fully stacked on reels 2 through 5 during the free spins meaning you could play the 5 free spins with 4 fully wild reels!

Santa is a simple but jolly affair – the visuals are nicely done and you’ll hear Jingle Bells and Deck The Halls playing as you spin. We landed the bonus features at regular intervals. The stacked wilds can have a big impact in the free spins round but you need to get 3 or 4 reels to win big. The overall variance is in the medium range.

There’s nothing particularly flashy on show in this Christmas-themed slot. If you’re looking for something to get you in the festive mood then Santa should do the trick. I also recommend NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas which is rather good.
