Santa's Crackers Slot Review
Jackpotjoy - No Wagering
As it's approaching that most wonderful time of the year it's only fitting that our latest slot of the month should have a festive theme. With UKGC changes it'll be interesting to see which Christmas slots feature this year. However, for November 2018 we've decided to revisit an old favourite that we know is available to play - Santa's Crackers from Jackpotjoy!
Santa's Crackers is a Gamesys slot that features 5 reels and just 5 paylines. You can play from 1 to 5 lines and a cost of between 1p and £20 a line. The maximum wager therefore is £100. There are no max bet or autoplay buttons which does make the game very retro compared to some of the ones mentioned above.
Deck The Halls
The graphics are also fairly retro too. The only symbols you'll see on the reels are holly, christmas pudding, snowmen, crackers and Santa. Santa can also be found at the top left of the game with a couple of ladies pulling a cracker. To be honest the top left Santa doesn't look overly jolly and is borderline creepy.
Spins are accompanied with a twinkly chimey sound, but when you win you get a round of 'Deck the Halls' which sounds like it being played on a Casio organ. When you win you'll also see the paytable at the top of the game showing you what you've won.
Spin To Win Or Lose
Santa's Crackers doesn't have any wilds or bonus game features. This is one of the reasons we like it. So many slots these days are chockful of wilds, random features and free spins that you don't know what's happening half the time. In 'Crackers you spin the reels and either win or lose - simple!
The slot also gives you the chance to win with just two symbols on a winning line. Get two snowmen, crackers or santa for a x2 to x15 multiplier win. This balances out the limited paylines and we found that wins were actually quite frequent. This slot has a 91.53% RTP (Return to Player) at time of writing.
Santa's Crackers is available to play at Jackpotjoy, Heart Bingo, Virgin Games and Star Spins.
