It takes a special kind of mind to come up with a slot game like Naughty or Nice by Realtime Gaming (RTG) as it features two rather sexy Santa’s helpers, a deer with a bra on his horns, and then on top of that an Ugly Grandma that’s coming to get you. Probably because you were too loud with those two helpers or because you didn’t do your chores on time.
The Naughty or Nice slot is ancient by slot game standards as it was released in November 2009, and it shows. Not that the graphics are that bad – there are uglier slots published five years after this one – but this one kind of lacks the pizazz of the more recent titles. In short, it’s boring to play.
You just spin the reels over and over again, with Ugly Grandma ruining what’s left of your holiday spirit every time she appears, and the only thing you can do here is to wait for that progressive jackpot. Which, of course, you most likely won’t win.
It’s not that the game can’t be rewarding. When the Naughty or Nice Feature is triggered you get 10 free spins, and you get to choose which symbol do you want to use as a bonus substitute, hence the name of the slot. When you get three or more Scatters will get you 10 free games, and you’ll choose Nice Girl or Naughty Girl as your bonus substitute that doubles the win and brings +1 free bonus game. See this screenshot for an example of how much money can be won with a single Naughty or Nice Feature. Starting bank was $1000, bet size was $12.50.
Nice Girl and Naughty Girl are Wild (girls are wild, see what we did there?) and substitute for all symbols except for the Naughty or Nice Scatter. Progressive jackpot is won when you get five Nice Girls occur on a payline during a normal game. Five Santas will get you 10,000 coins and five Ugly Grandma will get you 2,500.
This Realtime Gaming (RTG) slot is, as usual for RTG, configurable by the casino. That means it can have settings which we presume to be 91% for low payout, 94% or 95% for medium payout, and 97.5% for high payout. And we seriously doubt any casino set this game on 97.5% as it just doesn’t feel that rewarding wherever we played it. But then again, with RTG you never know officially.
This slot game is for those guys who want to brag about playing one of the worst slot games and walking away with their psyche unharmed. But if you think this is the trashiest slot game ever, there’s something worse. The sequel.
