Online slot review: Santa’s Wild Ride
We told you we’d be coming in hot with the Christmas slots this month, and our latest review is no exception! Get ready for the ultimate Christmas adventure with Santa’s Wild Ride, and who knows – it could turn out to be the ultimate jackpot adventure too!
A Christmas treat from Microgaming, Santa’s Wild Ride takes you round the world on Christmas Eve as Santa distributes gifts to everyone on his ‘nice’ list – and with 5 reels and 243 ways to win, that list could very well include your name too!
Want to join in and sleigh the Christmas jackpots? Then get ready to place your bets for a huge festive win. With a max bet of up to $7.50, Santa’s Wild Ride could be just the slot to suit your bankroll – and the top bonus jackpot of 1,900,000 coins in the free spins round could be just the wonderland payout you’ve been waiting for!
So what should you be looking out for when you’re spinning the reels with Santa? First of all, some glittering bonus gifts in the form of stacked wilds, expanding wilds and trailing wilds, all designed to give you the wild ride promised in the title. You’ll also want to keep your strength and your spirits up as you speed across the skies – which you’ll be able to do with some yummy Christmas treats. Find the cookies, mince pies, beer, sandwiches and puddings on the reels, and you’ll get an 80x multiplier when 5 matching symbols appear. Get all the way to 5 North Pole symbols for a 100x multiplier, 5 motorbikes for 125x, 5 elves for 150x, 5 Mrs Clauses for 175x, and 5 fabulous Santas for 200x! It’s the wild ride that pays, and then some.
Want to unwrap even more goodies? Then look out for the Blitzen scatter that can appear anywhere on the reels and give you a 50x multiplier for finding 5. And then there’s the wild ride itself – the wild symbol that’ll substitute for all other symbols to complete winning combos, and will pay out 800x when 5 appear on a winning payline!
Don’t forget about the free spins either – find 3 or more scatter keys and you’ll go straight to the bonus round, with 25 free spins at your fingertips. Even better, with a choice of stacked wild, expanding wild and trailing wild features, your free spins are packed chock-a-block with even more bonus Christmas cheer. And just for something extra in your stocking, you’ll find all your free spins winnings doubled too, at the end of the round. Now that’s what we call a merry Christmas!
Santa’s not done handing out gifts yet though – because as you’re helping him, he’ll help you too with a few random gifts along the way. Keep an eye out for mystery prizes on reels 2 and 4, and if you’re lucky enough, you could be enjoying even more winning Christmas magic!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and with Santa’s Wild Ride, it could be the most winning time of the year too. So come on board Santa’s sleigh – there’s plenty of room for you, and plenty of jackpots to be won too. Merry Christmas!
Happy Spinning 🙂
