Ho! Ho! Ho! Every Christmas many of the world's biggest and best slots developers release their new Christmas games. This week we're checking out the best of the 2018 bunch so snuggle down with a Winter Warmer and enjoy these Christmas themed treats!
We think you will find these game go nicely with the other great Christmas slot machines already available.
Overview: The Naughty or Nice series of slots from developer Realtime Gaming probably needs no introduction to seasoned slots players and now, just in time for Christmas 2018 we have the third game in the series.
On the reels you'll find the bikini clad Naughty and Nice girls along with a cocktail drinking Santa and an angry looking Mrs Santa! Cute dog, money and a car wash symbol also appear on the reels along with snow covered playing card symbols from 9 to Ace.
This is a 5 reel video slot with 30 fixed paylines. In terms of features you get a Lucky Feature (rewarding 5-7 free games), Naughty or Nice III scatters and there's a classic pick me style game in which you must choose between the two girls to reveal a bonus prize. The dark haired naughty girls are grouped Wilds on reels 1 and 2 and substitute for all symbols except scatters. The blonde nice girls are grouped wilds on reels 4 and 5 and also counts for all symbols except scatters.
When 3 or more of the Naughty or Nice logos appear anywhere on reels you will win 7 free games. You must choose either the Naughty or the Nice girl in a Pick a Girl feature for the chance to double all wins during free games and to win one of two bonus games. Each time one of the girls appears during your free games you will win another free spin.
We'd have liked to have seen Realtime Gaming move away from the slightly cheesy Naughty or Nice babes in bikinis theme really and deliver something totally new but if you're a fan of the originals then this game will appeal.
This game features both a major and minor random progressive jackpot that can be won during any spin.
Overview:Jingle Spins is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from top Swedish developer Net Entertainment.
Santa stands to the right of the 5 reels which depict a variety of wooden Christmas tree baubles. The baubles are in the shape of playing card symbols (J,Q,K,A), fruits, deer and Christmas tree. There is also a Wild symbol in the form of a Christmas present. Above each of the reels sits one of Santa's helpers.
Santa himself has a Steampunk look as he works away in his grotto - hit the spin button and Santa pulls the lever to set the reels spinning. As the reels spin a separate wheel of fortune type reel will also spin and propels a ball to one of the Santa helpers who sits above the reels.
With each spin of the reels these balls move left to the next Santa helper. The Santa helpers will drop the balls to trigger special bonuses onto their reels whenever a Wild lands on their reels.
Spreading Wilds are activated during both the main game and the Free Spins feature when the Bauble drops onto a regular Wild symbol appearing on the reel. The Spreading Wild symbol substitutes for all the symbols except for the regular Wild.
No surprise that the Free Spins Baubles trigger Free Spins rounds. You win a number of spins, from 7 up to 50, depending on the number shown on the free spins Bauble. Best of all there's the chance to retrigger free spins with no limits.
A Coin Win bauble gives you an instant win from 50 up to 2500 coins bonus.
The Surprise Bauble rewards either Coin Win, Free Spins, or the Spreading Wild randomly.
Jingle Spins is another fun slot from Net Entertainment and it plays well on mobile devices as well as desktop.
