Get festive with Fat Santa, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Push Gaming. Look out for Santa’s sleigh that can fly across the reels and drop extra wilds into play. There’s also a free spins round where the Santa wild devours pies and increases in size to boost your winning chances. Say ho, ho ho on all devices from between 25p and £25 per spin.
Like most festive slots, there’s a jolly, colourful feel to the design in Fat Santa. Set against a wintry backdrop filled with snow-capped mountains, trees and cabins you’ll see 4 lower value bauble symbols. They’re joined by a gift box, snowman and moose.
The best of the standard symbols is Santa’s elf who offers payouts of up to 20 times your total stake per payline. Fat Santa is wild. He replaces all other symbols and also delivers payouts of up to 20 times your total stake per payline. There are 2 extras on offer in Fat Santa.
Santa’s Sleigh feature – on any spin, Santa’s animated sleigh can fly across the screen and drop Christmas pies onto the reels. These are wild and in play on the spin that follows.
Free Games feature – the main bonus round is triggered by landing a wild Santa and a wild mince pie symbol on the same spin. You’ll start with 5 free spins but there’s plenty of scope to add more. If a mince pie symbol lands, the Santa symbol moves towards it and eats it. Each pie eaten adds to the Pie Meter.
The wild Santa symbol gets bigger the more pies he eats. You can also add more free spins to your total by adding to the Pie Meter. If you don’t want to wait, you’ll be given the opportunity to buy your way into the Free Games feature.
Fat Santa is a simple but entertaining take on the Christmas slot. The visuals are jolly without being too schmaltzy and the catchy soundtrack bounces along. The range of features isn’t huge but Santa’s Sleigh appears regularly. Get on a roll with the pies and Fat Santa can really live up to his name and turn into a colossal wild.
As far as variance goes, we’re in the medium range – it does offer payouts of 6,405 times your stake though! Many festive slots are overly cheesy but this works pretty well. With its glossy design and simple but playable features, we’re happy to share a mince pie or 2 with Fat Santa. If you like the theme, I recommend you try Taco Brothers Saving Christmas from ELK Studios which is excellent.
