Christmas comes just once a year, but that hasn’t stopped the world’s major slot producers from releasing a huge number of Christmas themed slots onto the market. Some of them are absolutely fantastic, while others are average at best – just like the presents you’re likely to receive on 25th December. But is Secrets of Christmas a great slot, or does it fail to hit the mark?
It certainly wouldn’t be fair to call this slot from NetEnt a bad one, but it also really doesn’t bring anything new or unique to the world of Bitcoin casino slots. That said, Secrets of Christmas does have a fantastic soundtrack, and the visuals are extremely well put together – bringing the spirit of Christmas straight to your screen. But with so many Christmas themed slots around, a new slot really has to do something special to stand out from the crowd, and aside from a great design, Secrets of Christmas fails to “wow” us entirely.
There’s nothing revolutionary about the gameplay of Secrets of Christmas. It’s a five reel slot, and you’ll be able to adjust the amount you bet per spin, however you can’t adjust the number of paylines, meaning that you’ll always have to play all 25 of them. There’s an Autoplay feature at this slot, and all prizes can be found on the paytable.
The wild symbol at this slot is Father Christmas himself and, like most wild symbols, can replace other symbols on the reels to create winning combinations. There’s nothing else special attached to this wild symbol, although you should find that it spins into view quite regularly.
The main bonus feature at this slot is the free spins, and these are activated by spinning in three or more scatters on the reels. When this happens, you’ll initially receive ten free spins, however before they start, you’ll be able to choose some mystery features – the exact number you can choose depends on the number of scatters activating the free spins. These can include extra free spins, wild reels, or multipliers. The free spins feature is undoubtedly the best aspect of this slot, and it can lead to some particularly nice prizes.
If you’re a fan of Christmas, then you might find some cheer in this slot. For everyone else though, it really doesn’t bring anything new to the table, and is likely to be forgotten about pretty quickly – or at least until Christmas comes around again. The free spins are definitely the highlight, however the rest of the slot is rather average. If you’re still interested in playing this slot though, it will be released at various Bitcoin casinos by NetEnt on 15th December.
