Secrets of Christmas is the slot game everyone was waiting for and the star of Christmas 2016 as NetEnt release it on 15 December. Secrets of Christmas is a very good slot game with high production value, solid Return to Player (RTP) of 96.72%, medium variance, 25 paylines and a maximum possible win of 350,000 coins which would translate to $175,000 in case of max bet of $125. After launch you can play this game at NetEnt casinos such as Unibet, William Hill or Videoslots. US players can’t play as there are no NetEnt casinos that accept US players, unfortunately, which means they have to turn to Realtime Gaming titles on the list of best Christmas slot games.
The game feels rewarding although the big wins need to be waited for. In order to play this game you should first secure a large enough bankroll, and it does pay off to have a large bet per spin. Bankroll of 50 x or 100 x your chosen bet should be enough to play this game comfortably as you just need to get through the normal play and reach those free spins.
Three Scatter symbols anywhere trigger the 10 free spins, and then you get to pick your Christmas presents (three to five, depending on number of Scatters), which are in your case the extra features you’ll be getting during your free spins, such as multipliers, extra free spins, wild symbols or even an entire wild reel – which is the best thing you can get as it guarantees huge payouts.
Secrets of Christmas has nice graphics, it’s obvious this is a quality production slot by NetEnt. Everything just works, it’s a decent visual experience without anything being spectacular. The overall feel of the game is good, and the lesser software providers cannot match this kind of attention to detail and overall balance. A quality product.
The best thing about Secrets of Christmas are huge payouts. Of course, the slot game balances it out by chewing on your money during normal play, and in case of a max bet of $125 you need at least $7,000 to $12,000 starting bankroll, but dare we say – it’s worth it. A single bonus game with free spins can win you $10,000 if you get that one wild reel.
