That’s why we’ve prepared a list of our top holiday-themed slot machines. Get a cold drink, sit back, and enjoy our casino games!
Spinate Grande is the first holiday-themed slot on the list and with good reason. The NetEnt release comes with 5 reels and 40 paylines and boasts a fun mariachi theme. Playable across all devices, you can enjoy the game from just 20p per spin on your desktop, smartphone or tablet. In terms of features, expect to see colossal symbols, a mini slot game and a Free Spins round. The mini slot game comes with guaranteed wins and also has the potential to trigger the Free Spins round.
In this holiday season slot game, all symbols can appear as a colossal symbol and fill a 2×2 or 3×3 block to provide bigger wins. If you’re lucky enough to land the colossal bonus symbol on the reels, you’ll trigger the mini-slot game where the bonus symbol splits into 3, 6 or 9 individual symbols, depending on how much of the symbol is showing. This mini game will contain scatters, extra spin symbols, free spin symbols and 3 different coin symbols, so there’s plenty to keep you entertained here. If you land 3 free spins symbols simultaneously in the mini slot, you’ll activate the Free Spins feature and begin with 5 free spins. If you land any additional free spin symbols during the round, one extra free spin will be added to your tally.
Aloha! Cluster Pays
Aloha! Cluster Pays is another holiday-themed slot from NetEnt. Here, the action takes place on a tropical island across 6 reels and 5 rows. The betting range is one of the widest we’ve seen, allowing players to wager anywhere from 10p per spin to as much as £200. As the symbols whizz past, keep your eyes peeled for the volcano that erupts whenever you form a winning combo.
This holiday slots game boasts a Cluster Pays mechanic where there are no paylines. Instead, you can form a win by landing symbols in clusters. The more symbols you land together, the bigger the size of the cluster. The bigger the size of the cluster, the bigger the payout – simple! You need to land at least 9 matching symbols in a cluster to form a win, with the symbols landing horizontally or vertically adjacent to one another. There are also stacked symbols that count as 2 symbols for even bigger wins.
During the base game, a win can randomly trigger the Sticky Win Re-spin feature. Here, the winning symbols are held in place while the rest of the grid re-spins for another chance to win. If the winning cluster increases in size, the new symbols turn sticky and another re-spin is awarded. The Re-spins come to an end when no new winning symbols land on the grid.
Here Comes Summer
Next up we’ve got Here Comes the Summer, a holiday-themed slot from 1×2 Gaming. Playable across all devices, the game can be enjoyed from just 20p per spin on your mobile, PC or tablet. This sunny looking slot is a relatively basic one. Despite its simplicity, there’s plenty of fun to be had with this release. As you spin the reels, enjoy the cartoon-style visuals and the bouncy soundtrack that has a clear resemblance to Madonna’s iconic ‘Holiday’.
Set against a sun-kissed beach backdrop, the reels are filled with theme-fitting symbols, including A to J royals as the low payers. The high paying symbols are represented by a sandcastle, a deck check, flip flops, a parasol, a suitcase, and a palm tree. The latter is the most rewarding, with 3, 4 or 5 on a payline giving you 1.5, 12.5 or 30 times your stake respectively.
The bonus round is well worth waiting for as expanding wilds can land as you spin the reels for free. If you manage to collect enough ice cream cones, expanding multipliers can also come into play to further increase your payouts. Variance-wise, this holiday-themed slot is medium with a bang on average RTP of 96%.
Powered by Yggdrasil Gaming, Spinata Grande is the final holiday-themed slot on the list. The action here takes place on 5 reels and 25 paylines, so there’s plenty of opportunities to score a win. As the name suggests, the slot has a cocktail theme and boasts a variety of bonus features. Expect to see extra multipliers, re-spins and 4 randomly triggered bonus features up for grabs. However, the main attraction is undoubtedly the Free Spins feature, where you’re guaranteed a win on each free spin.
Visually, this holiday-themed slot is fantastic. When you open up the game, you’ll be transported to a tropical beach bar where you can sit back, relax and watch the symbols whizz past. You’ll see a variety of theme-fitting icons on the reels including pineapples, watermelons, oranges, kiwis, strawberries and 3 different cocktails. The wild is the Spina Colada logo, which performs the usual wild duties and substitutes for all other symbols to help form a win.
This holiday slot machine also comes with a Re-Spin feature, which is triggered whenever you form a winning combo. When you do, the winning symbols will turn sticky while the rest of the grid re-spins for another chance to win. The re-spins continue for as long as new winning combos are formed.
