Where to play?
Santastic is a cute little Christmas slot game by Realtime Gaming (RTG) that’s just simple enough and fun enough to go with the holiday spirit. By simple we mean it’s a 3-reel 5-payline slot game with a maximum bet of $1.25, just what you need for relaxing during the holidays. Even if minimum bet is $0.50, this slot game won’t be chewing on your bankroll and you might just win $50, $100 and the like, while waiting for the Christmas turkey or while waiting for the kids to wake up. Our friends over at Sweet Bet have a range of casinos you can try out.
Santastic slot will bring you reindeer, elves, cake, candy, snowman, Santa, stocking, North Pole sign and teddy bear symbols as well as Double and Triple symbols and the Jackpot scatter symbol. Double and Triple symbols are effectively Wild symbols, but you also get some extra money, which is nice.
Whenever you get three of a kind, which means you have to have three same symbols one one of the five paylines, the Festive Feast feature will be triggered and on the Bonus Meter you get one of the following: no bonus, 3 free games, 10 free games, jackpot spin, jackpot spins, 25 free bets or 2500x bet. Most of the time you’ll get no bonus but it doesn’t reduce the playability of this game as the Festive Feast will get triggered very often.
The reels don’t spin unnecessarily. As soon as you click Spin, you’ll see the result of your spin with minimal fuss. The reels spin normally only during Bonus game or Jackpot game, to increase the anticipation. One thing we do resent is the long waiting period whenever a Bonus Meter feature is triggered, though you can just click on Spin to get it over with quickly. But the flashing “feature is triggered” text is unnecessary.
When you get some Bonus games, the feature can be re-triggered and you can win some more free games (free spins): 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 15 or 25. So whenever the feature is re-triggered you’ll get at least one extra free game.
Jackpot game can be triggered either by winning the Jackpot spins on the bonus feature, or when you get a Jackpot symbol anywhere on the reels. All the other symbols will be greyed out, and only Jackpot symbols will count. The progressive jackpot was about $200 during our test play. Santastic won’t make you a millionaire but you might make a couple of hundred, and if you lose you won’t lose much. The balance is just right – in either case your holiday spirit won’t be ruined. The only way to make some serious money with this slot is to hit the 2500x bet on that Bonus Meter.
Santastic does exactly what it’s supposed to. It’s a fun little slot game for that time when you need a break and some time for yourself during the Christmas holidays. It isn’t such a high-production game such as A Christmas Carol but it remains so popular all over the world, including the USA as US players can play Realtime Gaming slots.
You’ll find the Santastic slot over at 5Dimes, or in their Grand Casino to be more precise, which is one of six casinos they have under their umbrella. So head on over to 5Dimes and play the Santastic slot game. The best bonus you can get for this game though is at Lucky Red, it’s 400% up to $4000.
