Overview Of Wonders Of Christmas

What’s that coming down the chimney? Ho-ho-ho-holy spirit, it’s a merry little game by NetEnt! Wonders of Christmas has landed on the rooftop in a sleigh of jingling bells, just in time for the Holiday Season!

Slot Description

Wonders Of Christmas has a 3-4-5-4-3 reel setup with 20 fixed pay lines. During the base game you need to collect Wild symbols to fill up the progress bar above the reels.

Each time a Wild lands you will be awarded 1 point on the progress bar, however once a Wild lands it leaves a golden frame and if a Wild then lands in the frame it awards a random amount of points ranging between 1 and 4 points.

However, that’s not all, the gold frames also remain on the reels until such point a Wild symbol lands in it and randomly turns golden. When this happens the Wild symbol then spreads to all frames adjacent and next to it up to 5 times and as the example shows below this can easily fill the screen up as well as increasing your point progress substantially!

Each time the progress bar is filled with 200 points the multiplier increases in the following order.

x1, x2, x3, x5, x7, x10, x12, x15, x20, x30, x40, x50, x75, x100, x200, x300, x500, x1000

In the event of landing 3 scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 the bonus is triggered with the current multiplier. You start with 3 free spins and the only symbols are gold coins and blank spaces, each time you land a gold coin the spins left resets to 3 similar to many other bonuses of this ilk like Chaos Crew. The Gold Coins have values between 0.5x and 50x stake and all gold frames that were left from the base game also award a coin each. The bonus ends when there are no more spins or all positions are locked, the win is then multiplied by the multiplier collected and an extra x2 multiplier is added if you manage to fill the whole screen with locked coins.

Wonders Of Christmas Paytable

The paytable in Wonders Of Christmas is dynamic and changes with your stake, the example below is set to £1 per spin. Starting with the low paying symbols we have the 10’s paying 0.4x stake for a full line, the J’s and Q’s both pay 0.6x and the K’s and A’s both pay 0.9x respectively.

Moving on to the premium symbols the Stocking and Snow Globe pay 1.20x stake for a full line, The Gingerbread House and Toy Train pay 2.50x and the top symbol of Santa’s Sleigh and the Wild both pay 5x stake.

Final Thoughts On Wonders Of Christmas

Wonders Of Christmas has an RTP of 96.06%, the volatility is rated as High and the maximum win is a staggering 100,000x stake

Overall the game is pleasant on the eyes and the soundtrack is very Christmassy, the wins seem to come regularly with the obvious abundance of wilds, remember you will need between 2000 and 4000 of these little gift boxes to reach the 1000x multiplier depending on if they land in a frame or not so the wins are not so great without a decent multiplier, however the wilds do come thick and fast which could make this a great wagering slot to grind.

Good luck and thanks for reading and remember, It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
