How to play Christmas Megaways Slot
When you open the game you can view the rules and a full paytable by clicking on a trophy icon. Next, set your bet from 0.20 to 20 coins and click ‘Spin’ or ‘Auto Play’. If you choose the latter, you can set it at 5, 10, 20, 50, 99, or 999 spins. You can stop it at any time, or set it to stop when you land a win, lose a specified amount or activate the free spins round.
How to win Christmas Megaways Slot
There are up to 117, 649 easy to win, with the usual Megaways tumble mechanism in place. You need to land three or more matching symbols to get a payout. There’s a full paytable available, but the highest paying symbol is the Christmas tree. Landing just two will get you 20 coins, up to 500 for six of a kind. The sack of presents is the next most valuable icon, followed by, the gifts, the candle and then the bauble.
The wild is a bright shining star, and there’s a 2x wild too. Appearing on reels two - six, the wilds will substitute for all other symbols to help you to create winning combinations.
Special Features and Bonuses
Aside from the wilds, Megaways and tumbling reels mechanisms, the only bonus feature is the Free Spins Round.
You need to land four consecutive wins to activate eight free spins.
During the free spins round, any new win from the tumbling reels will trigger another two free spins, up to 14. That’s not all. For the duration of the bonus round, each reel with seven symbols gets its height locked in. Every win also adds an unlimited 1x multiplier.
Depending on your country and jurisdictions you may also have a ‘Bonus Buy’ option to the free spins feature with a higher stake.
Design & Theme
Christmas Megaways has been designed to allow operators to insert their own branding and logos. The Christmas theme is still there of course, with a snowy backdrop and presents dotted around. The symbols are also in keeping with the festive theme. Icons include baubles, presents, and red and white striped candles decorated with springs of holly, The lower paying playing card symbols are also decked with bows or bells and trimmed with gold. Christmas music plays in the background as you spin the reels.
However, there is a slightly unfinished look to the game that probably works better for the operators than the players.
There aren’t all that many Christmas-themed Megaways slots so this game already has novelty value. It’s a fun and festive reskin of other Iron Dog Megaways titles, but no worse for that. However, it’s not a typical slot as it’s made for operators to customize.
The graphics are attractive enough, yet seem a little bit cold. But it’s not all about looks of course. There are also plenty of interesting features such as the free spins being triggered by cascades. If you like Christmas slots and you like Megaways slots then you’ll probably like Christmas Megaways. However, there are many Christmas slots that project more warmth and festive cheer.
