Exploring a new online slot machine can be a lot like unwrapping a Christmas present. Unwrapping the Wild symbols and other mechanics and eventually triggering a bonus can reveal a lump of coal or prizes to please the player at a level that causes joy. You never know what the Wilds, Multipliers, and Free Spins will bring!
Stakelogic is getting into the Christmas spirit for those who want to give themselves the gift of mystery and surprise this holiday season with a trip on the Santa Express. No matter if you have been naughty or nice, there’s something on the Express for everyone. If your favorite online casino carries Stakelogic games, look for your name on a stocking and see what’s been stuffed into it – it might be the Santa Express.
This 5×4 title is set against a wintry backdrop, so players can enjoy their warm environs while looking into the fantasy world of a winter wonderland. There are 20 fixed paylines and the top prize is 20,000x your bet. Holiday visitors on the reels include reindeer, ornaments, elves, and some nice hot chocolate.
Cascading Reels with Sticky Progressive Multiplier Wilds
There’s something extra special that happens after a win occurs. All of the symbols involved in a win will disappear but before they are replaced, a Wild symbol will be placed on one of the reels. After the random wild is placed the rest of the slots will be filled in with new symbols tumbling down like huge snowflakes to fill in the gaps and present another opportunity to win again from the same spin.
That Wild symbol takes on magical powers as it stays on the slot board with every subsequent win – that’s good news but the great news is that the symbol has an increasing multiplier that can go up to 10x with each win leading up to that ultimate value increasing 1x.
If you land three or more scatters on the reels it might mean you’ve been good this year, but either way, you’ll catch some free spins. A random number of gratis games will be awarded: 8, 10, 12, or 15 will be granted.
If that sounds good, it’s about to get even better. A random symbol – it could be a high-paying icon or a low paying one – will become a chosen symbol and become worth 2x its paytable stated amount. Regardless of which symbol is chosen, a randomly chosen win multiplier will be applied to all spins in the feature game with the possibilities being 2x, 3x, 5x, and 10x. That makes wins with the chosen symbol worth up to 20x the stated paytable amount awarded during the base game.
Retrigger the Bonus Game
Land three more scatters to trigger 5 more games and a 2x multiplier – land four scatters during the bonus game to win 8 Extra Free Spins and a 10x Multiplier – land all five scatters on the reels during the free spins to get 10 extra spins and a 20x bet multiplier.
The Collapsing Wild feature from the base game carries over into the bonus round.
If Santa hasn’t smiled at you yet, you can go ahead and grab the biggest present under the tree if you really want to, nobody will think less of you if the SuperStake function tempts you to double your bet to increase the chance you’ll trigger the bonus.
Psst… If you really want to you can just up your ante a lot more and buy the bonus feature. Nobody’s looking, you can do it.
Stakelogic CCO, Olga Bajela said: “Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year and with Santa Express players have the chance to unwrap some truly big wins. For those that have been well behaved, Free Spins and Multipliers await.
“But we have spread the festive cheer even to those who find themselves on Santa’s naughty list, with the option to Buy the Bonus and enjoy some Free Spins regardless.”
