Holiday themed NetEnt release is a 3 rows and 5 reels video slot with 25 fixed paylines. With Christmas spirit brought to life, the Secrets of Christmas slot features some truly awesome visual and sound effects. The background looks like it came straight from a Season’s Greeting card or a story book.
Featuring symbols inspired by the most loveable holiday traditions, the slots is sure to revoke the memories of your favourite TV specials and how days before Christmas were once eagerly counted. To top it all, you will even get to pick which present to unwrap!
What We Love
The atmosphere and the symbols are amazing. The developer paid special attention to the details, making our warmest childhood memories into profitable slot symbols. Christmas Stocking, Milk and Cookies and Gingerbread House are only some of the icons that will make you wish you were a kid again. The music background is an excellent addition to the Holiday theme and classics such as “Jingle Bells” will contribute to your festive mood.
We found the bonus rounds pretty enjoyable and interesting. Once the Santa’s Gift Bag (Scatter) lands the reels, free spins together with a bonus game will be triggered. This is where the player can choose between the gifts which will in turn award further spins, Wilds and multipliers. Just as exiting as running down the stairs on a Christmas morning and going straight to the Christmas tree!
What We Do Not Like
We were trying hard not to like something about this slot, but our efforts were futile. The special features are rather nice and can be retriggered and the payment potential is tempting. After some time of trying to be objective, we found one thing that can potentially end up on the dislike list.
The Christmas theme exploitation may not sit well with some people and many can consider it cheesy. The same goes for the music. This, of course, is only an assumption of what people can consider as a slot drawback.
The fact of the matter is that people who despise the commercial side of the Holidays will simply avoid this slot. If you are willing to overlook (the relatively speaking) corny theme, you will be faced with a nice 96.7% RTP rate.
We found the slot definitely worth one’s time, starting from the theme and sound effects to the payout potential and return to player percentage. The highest paying symbol is worth 1,250 coins in the main game. This figure is of course higher within the bonus mode where you can get a multiplier. The slot is also adjusted to the wide variety of players.
With the lowest stake of $0.25 and the maximum of $125.00, Secrets of Christmas is equally suitable for more prudent players and the ones not afraid to submit higher stakes. Whichever group you belong to, one thing is for sure – the kid within you will be jumping for joy.
