Pragmatic Play’s Santa’s Wonderland is a new release featuring Jolly Ol’ Santa Nick. It features “Father Christmas” and a variety of festive surprises. The content provider has increased the holiday season excitement with its new slot. PlayBonds.com, an online casino, has also facilitated a multi-vertical agreement with the content provider.
Santa is the main character in this high-volatility, 8-reel 8-row slot with 20 paylines. Santa’s Reindeer-led sleigh has piles of Christmas gifts ready to be loaded onto it. The maximum win is 7,500x.
For a cluster-paying grid slot, players must land five matching symbols either horizontally or vertically to receive a payout. Tumble is activated when winning clusters are formed. This allows symbols above to fall and fill in the spaces. This process continues until there are no more wins.
The paytable is made up of brightly-colored toys and baubles. There are also blue, green and red Christmas ball decorations. These low payouts can be worth 5 to 12.5x for a group of 20 to 24 symbols. High payouts include toy planes, trains and bow-tie-wearing teddy bears. These are worth 25 to 100x the stake for any 20-24 symbol cluster.
Santa can also appear on the grid as a Wild and substitute for any symbols. The jolly one doesn’t hit in the normal way. Instead, he can appear as part of the Wild Santa and Lucky Santa features. Wilds can also connect to multiple symbols simultaneously to complete clusters.
Snowflake modifiables are another exciting feature. Five snowflakes are displayed underneath regular symbols in random cells of the grid at the beginning of every spin. The clock meter is the one that loads the snowflake into the grid when winning symbols are removed. A corresponding modifier is activated when the current tumble sequence ends.
