Top 10 holiday slot games

9 December 2019

Here in the U.S., Thanksgiving just wrapped up and the Christmas season is here in full force. As the time of Santa’s gift-giving continues to near each day, we take a look at the top 10 holiday slot games for the 2019 season.

10. Merry Xmas
Play’n GO’s Merry Xmas slot is a five-reel, 15-payline game with wild and scatter symbols.

After a winning spin, players can opt to play the Gamble round to multiply the prize even further if they can correctly guess the suit or color of secret card.

When three Christmas gifts have been delivered anywhere on the reels, it's time to choose and unwrap a special bonus present.



9. Naughty or Nice?
While enjoying the slot featuring Santa’s helpers, Naughty or Nice?, players have the opportunity to choose between naughty or nice when three or more scatter wreaths appear in order to win 10 free games.

If one or more of Santa’s helpers are involved in a winning combination, then the prize is doubled.

In the free games, if one of Santa’s helpers appear, players receive a bonus of either an additional free game, an instant prize of up to 20x the original bet, or the reel will be held for the next game.

8. Happiest Christmas Tree
This game includes a Prize Pot feature, where players will pick from 12 wreaths until three symbols are matched.

In this slot featuring bells, toy trains and a nutcracker, three Christmas tree wilds will unlock free spins in a festive bonus round.

Toni Karapetrov, head of corporate communications at Habanero, said, “We place a lot of emphasis on ensuring our games are immersive, entertaining and topical. The Happiest Christmas Tree certainly ticks all three of those boxes and we can’t wait to gauge the reaction from players as they start playing this festive fun-filled slot.”

7. The Nutcracker
iSoftBet’s five-reel, 20-line game features a wild symbol that can replace any other symbols, except for the scatter, to form winning combinations and The Nutcracker himself.

Landing three or more scatter symbols will trigger the Fairy Free spins, during which the stacked Nutcracker on reel three will increase the win multiplier and any further Fairy Scatter COO at iSoftBet, said, “The Nutcracker is an iconic story that everyone knows or has heard of. Based on a proven math model and game mechanics that we know players love to play, it includes both classic and original game features and remains true to the fairy tale theme.”

6. Jingle Spin
NetEnt’s Jingle Spin is a five-reel, three-row, 20-fixed-line slot that celebrates the holiday mood. The game features a free spin mode that includes infinite re-triggering free spins.

The game takes place inside Santa’s workshop with all of his helping hands.

“Jingle Spin captures the magic of Christmas and, with people getting in the holiday spirit, is a fun addition to our other festive titles,” says NetEnt Director of Game Products Bryan Upton.

5. Snowmania
Players on the Snowmania slot see Christmas stockings and holiday treats spin on the five reels.

Symbols in winning combinations are crushed and new symbols appear, giving more possible winning combinations.

The win multiplier increases with each win, up to 5x. Christmas present symbols can trigger 10 free games with up to a 15x payout.

4. Rudolph Awakens
The 30-payline online slot, Rudolph Awakens, can see players win up to 50,000x the bet.

Rudolph is a nudging wild that expands to cover the entire reel and can trigger 10 free spins.

The sleeping Rudolph is frozen in ice and remains in place until the elf rescues and awakens him.

3. Raging Reindeer
When there was just 34 days remaining until Christmas, iSoftBet released Raging Reindeer for the public to enjoy.

The Christmas-themed slot is a 4x6 game comes with 4,096 ways to win.

Jingle Spins can be activated when three Raging Reindeer symbols land simultaneously. Also, in the bonus round, more Raging Reindeer symbols hitting the reels will lead to a sack of free spins.

Players can form winning combinations even on non-adjacent reels in this slot by using Rudolph symbols during Jingle Spins.

“With a festive theme and an exciting bonus round, our latest title is primed to release Rudolph’s wild side and deliver plenty of wins for iSoftBet fans during the season of goodwill,” said Michael Probert, chief commercial officer at iSoftBet.

2. Santa vs Rudolf
NetEnt is bringing the holiday spirit with Santa vs Rudolf. The 5x3, 20-payline slot will have players helping Santa find his hat, hidden by Rudolf, before he needs to deliver presents around the world.

The slot game comes with two bonus features, Santa’s Gifts and Rudolf Spins. It is also filled with respins, free spins, wild substitutions and walking wilds.

“Santa vs. Rudolf continues the humorous trend with goofy antics from our two favorite holiday heroes battling it out for seasonal supremacy. This narrative will be hard to resist even amongst the scrooges in our player base! Happy Holidays!” said NetEnt Director of Games Bryan Upton.


1. Brutal Santa
Brutal Santa is a three-reel, nine-payline slot from Evoplay Entertainment.

In the game, Santa rides a motorbike and players earn wins each time he takes a present from his sack. After a win, Santa places the present on the reels, if not, he will throw it away.

Players have seven bonuses to unlock throughout the game, and each gift represents a special bonus.

Creative Director at Evoplay Entertainment Ivan Kravchuk said, “Christmas comes but once a year, so we thought what better way to celebrate the festive fun by bringing out our own sinful Santa!”
