Jingle Spin Slots

When the holidays come around, it is time for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. See the family you have not had a chance to meet, go out for a walk through the snow or settle in somewhere warm and cosy. However, one man does not have the luxury of relaxing during Christmas time. Come for a tour of Santa’s workshop and watch him prepare gifts for the good boys and girls – and maybe sneak a gift or two for yourself while you are there! The slot is played on a 5x3 playing field with 20 fixed paylines. The game has three bonuses and all of them are activated using the same method.

How to Play

NetEnt’s titles always look fantastic and this one is no exception. The reels are a window to the outside world, where you can see the snow slowly falling in the pitch-black night. Santa is cranking his machine with each spin, while his elves relax on top of the window, occasionally tossing the orbs to each other or dropping them in a gift. The symbols are decent, but nothing particularly eye-catching. The user interface is the same one used in other NetEnt releases, with a red and gold coat of paint to appear more festive. Jingle Spin is played on a standard 5x3 playing field, which award pays for collecting three or more identical symbols, from left to right, that go through one of the twenty fixed paylines. The slot has three special features and all of them are triggered using the same method.

Betting Options and Payout

You can wager between $0.20 up to $200 per spin, which is a fantastic bet spread for both casual players and high rollers. The game has medium volatility, balancing between smaller, frequent pays and large, super-rare jackpots. The maximum win in Jingle Spin you can get is 200,000 coins. The RTP for this NetEnt release is 96.48%, and that is above average compared to other titles.

Symbols and Extra Features

Symbols include playing card royals – 10, J, Q, K and A, as well as a pinecone, a rain deer cookie, a Christmas tree toy, an orange slice and Christmas tree decoration. There is only one special icon, which is wrapped up gift Wild. There are three different baubles that you can get from Santa’s machine. The bauble is tossed up to the five dwarves seated above the reels. It starts with the rightmost gnome and gets thrown one position to the left with every spin. After it reaches the leftmost gnome, it is thrown away. To make use of its effect, you need the bauble and Wild symbol to be on the same reel. The bauble will then drop into Wild and trigger the appropriate special feature. Spreading Wild baubles transform all adjacent and diagonal symbols into additional Wilds. Free spins baubles can reward between 7 to 50 extra turns and you can win additional free spins during the special feature. Finally, coin win amounts pay the coin prize displayed on the bauble, multiplied by your bet level. There is also the fourth bauble called the Surprise bauble. This one can award any of the other three bauble bonuses.

Our Verdict

One of the things we like about NetEnt is their efforts to try and create new things, while maintaining their quality. We do not think the bauble system really worked as well as the developers hoped it would, but it proved a nice change of pace.
