Jingle Bells is a cheery looking Christmas themed slot from Red Tiger Gaming. Available on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game that’s full of Christmas spirit. Goodies on offer include raining wilds, high value only reel spins, mega 3×3 wilds and multipliers as well as a free spins feature and a cash trail that offers prizes of up to 800 times your stake. See what Santa has in his sack from between 20p and £500 per spin.

The visuals on display are bright and bold, even by Red Tiger Gaming standards – the setting is a cosy living room with a fire roaring away in the corner. Joining the lower value playing cards are a Christmas candy, stocking, baubles, star and bells. 5 bells pay 320 coins. The gift is the game’s wild – it replaces everything apart from the free spin and bonus symbols and offers awards of up to 400 coins.

Keep a special eye out for the animated Santa who can sneak onto the screen at random in the base game and award 1 of 4 mini features:

  • Raining Wilds feature – Christmas gifts will rain down onto the reels and in the process turn a random selection of symbols into wilds.
  • Winning Reels feature – the lower value playing cards are removed from the reels. The spin that follows will contain higher value symbols only.
  • Mega Wild feature – a giant 3×3 wild symbol is added to the reels offering a great opportunity to create a big winning combination.
  • Christmas Tree feature – Santa shakes the Christmas tree to the right of the reels to reveal a multiplier of up to 20x which will be applied to the win.

Jingle Bells also comes with 2 main bonus features – details are as follows:

Santa’s Bonus feature – land 3 of the sleigh Bonus symbol anywhere on the reels to trigger this one. You’ll be taken to a mountain trail. Pick from the presents to work your way along the trail. The higher you make it, the bigger the prizes on offer. Make it to the summit for a payday of 800 times your stake.

Free Spins feature – pick from 1 of the 3 sacks to reveal the number of free spins you’ve been awarded. There are up to 20 on offer. The mini features are in play during the feature. You can re-trigger more free spins too.

Jingle Bells is a jolly affair – it looks and sounds a treat and comes with a fantastic selection of features. All of the mini features have the potential to deliver big payouts. They come along at decent intervals too. We’d put the variance in the medium range.

Christmas themed slots are real hit and miss affairs but Jingle Bells is among the best we’ve come across. Superbly designed and with quality bonuses, it’s a highly enjoyable slot to play. If Santa works his magic, there could be some lovely presents hiding on his sleigh too. If you like Christmas themed slots, I recommend you play Playson’s Merry Christmas which very good.
