Stake Logic Book of Santa Slot ReviewTake a trip to winter wonderland in Book of Santa, a Christmas-themed slot from Stake Logic. Played using a 5 reel, 10 payline game engine, it comes with a free spins round complete with expanding symbols. Play on all devices from between 10p and £50 per spin.

The design in Book of Santa is as bright and jolly as you’d expect for a slot with a festive theme. A snow-capped cartoon village forms the backdrop to the snowflake clad reels. There you’ll see an assortment of Christmas goodies spinning around the reels.

The A to 10 symbols are done as tinsel wrapped wreaths. They’re joined by Christmas stockings and gingerbread men which award up to 75 times your stake per payline. The reindeer follows, paying up to 200 times your stake per line. The best paying symbol is Santa. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 of these in combination and the cashier’s stocking will fill up to the tune of 1, 10, 100 or 500 times your stake.

The symbol you’ll really be hoping to see is Santa’s book. This is the wild and replaces all other symbols. It’s also the scatter that triggers the game’s Free Spins Bonus Game feature. Land 3 or more of Santa’s book on the same spin and you’ll receive a scatter prize as well as 10 free spins.

These are played out on a new set of reels which includes expanding symbols. Which symbol becomes the expanding symbol is decided at random before the free spins start. The rewards on offer from the expanding symbol are pretty good too. Land 3, 4 or 5 of them on a payline and you’ll receive 2, 20 or 200 times your stake. You can re-trigger more free spins here too.

Book of Santa is a simple take on the classic Christmas-themed slot. The sound and visuals are decent enough and the gameplay is very straightforward. The expanding symbols can have a decent impact during the bonus round though. There’s nothing very innovative or imaginative about Book of Santa. It’s all solid enough without being very exciting.

If this ended up in our Christmas stocking, we wouldn’t be disappointed but we wouldn’t be jumping for joy either. Book of Santa isn’t a bad slot. It’s just a little plain. I would much rather play NetEnt’s Jingle Spin which offers more on the features front.
