Santastic Slots

Santastic is more than just a video slot. It’s a celebration and when you spin the reels and try to make any of the five paylines light up, you’ll notice that though this game is a little on the older side, there is a certain charm to it. 

Released a few years ago, the game is as simple a slot as you’re likely to find anywhere and though RTG did put a bonus meter into the game, it couldn’t by any stretch of the imagination be called a bonus round. 

However, there is a progressive jackpot, albeit a low one and the game has a cute theme, which makes it worth spinning the reels a few times. With a top fixed jackpot of 4 000 coins, you could emerge from this game quite satisfied, but don’t expect to make your millions playing this game.

Reviewers call Santastic an ‘oldie but a goodie’ and should you choose to spend the money in your real money account on this game, you’ll see why pretty quickly. The whole Christmas crowd makes an appearance in the game including Rudolph, a bowl of Christmas pudding and Santa himself, just to name a few. The game’s jackpot logo is the one to watch out for if you’re hoping to claim the progressive.

As mentioned, the game doesn’t make use of a bonus game but rather a bonus meter. This means that if you were hoping you’d get to deck the halls or decorate the tree for extra spins and multipliers, you’re out of luck. However, the bonus meter is quite charming and every time you work your way up this meter, you’ll stand in line to win free spins up to 25 and free jackpot spins, which is nothing to shy away from. The stocking symbols are quite useful too and finding these will multiply your payouts by as many as six times, should you use them to complete a winning combination.

The progressive jackpot, unlike what you’d find in many of today’s machines, is not randomly triggered and you’ll have to line up the jackpot symbols in order to find it. However, if you carefully consider what this means, you’ll likely come to the conclusion that this doesn’t help or hinder your odds very much at all. Whether you play with a random progressive or one that is triggered with five or more symbols, you won’t have more or less luck either way.

The question on many people’s lips is, why hasn’t Realtime Gaming updated this game? Clearly, it is a great one and has high entertainment value but it’s a little out of date. Well, we don’t have the answer to that question, but what we do know is that the game is one of the classics and deserves a place in your ‘must-play’ list, even if you only spin the reels once or twice. There is something inherently charming and pleasant in this game and though you won’t be faced with heart-racing action when you wager on these reels, you will no doubt enjoy the experience. And if you win? Well, that’s a bonus.
