At first glance
‘Secrets of Christmas™’ is a multi-platform game made by one of the most well-known providers, Net Entertainment. Unlike previous Christmas themed games by NetEnt, this game goes the extra mile with the Christmas decorations – with premium symbols fully based on traditional items you would find at Christmas such as cookies and milk, gingerbread houses and stockings and the wild symbols being the man St. Nicholas himself. The game itself consists of 5 reels and 25 paylines, and a full line of the highest paying symbol (Christmas bell) will pay 1,250x the bet. The slot has an RTP percentage (return to player) of 96.70%, with the maximum payout being 1425x the bet. This game is therefore considered ‘medium variance’.
Landing 3 scatters or more on this game will trigger the bonus and give the player 10 free spins. The player is then given a number of presents to choose from and depending on the number of scatters landed, they will be able to choose from up to 5, similar to Secret of the Stones. These presents will award the player with random features within these spins, which can be one of the following: Extra spins, random wilds, wild reels or multipliers.
How can I play it?
The game will be released on the 15th of December 2016, and will be available on most online casinos as is expected with NetEnt games – so let’s hope you can land a big win to finally buy your wife those shoes she always wanted… or not. It will be playable on computer and mobile devices so you can spread the Christmas cheer wherever you go!
Overall, this slot seems to be a nice little game, setting a new standard for Christmas themed slots in general due to its original design. Even though it does not have massive variance, there is still a chance of hitting a huge win and I for one will be trying my luck to land some presents on release!
