Santa’s Wonderland Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Santa’s Wonderland Slot (Pragmatic Play)Pragmatic Play is developing several new online slots for the holiday season, one of which will be a standalone offering named Santa's Wonderland.

The traditional element of Christmas is a huge source of inspiration for game creators all over the world, and we can see that in the way this video slot was done.

Here is all the information that you need to hear before playing Santa’s Wonderland:

Game Set-Up

Santa's Wonderland will have 8x8 reels and a Cluster Pays mechanism. This game has five types of modifiers, and other features like wilds, tumbling reels, and a level-up system involving multipliers.

Betting and Prizes

For those real money spins, I needed to pick from a betting range of between $0.20 and $100 per spin.

The returns that Pragmatic Play promises are quite attractive, and up to 7,500x ($750,000 top jackpot) can be paid from a single spin.

It’s highly volatile though, but one that also offers a good RTP of 96.23%.

Santa’s Wonderland Slot Features

Cluster Pays must form with 5+ matching symbols close to each other in Santa's Wonderland for you to be paid. Tumbles will appear after each cluster, providing you with the opportunity to hit more symbols and make more combos.

You have a meter that enables you to grow and level up as you play the game. I collected winning icons in the Midnight Riches clock, and once I had 140 of them, the feature was activated. You start with a 3x multiplier and work towards collecting additional symbols that will allow you to advance to the next levels:

Depending on the level, you get between 116 and 132 symbols, with a multiplier of between 6x and 15x.

The major feature symbols you'll meet on the reels are Santa Wilds. They will be paired with normal symbols as substitutes to deliver you new wins.

Besides, you'll come across 5 different sorts of modifiers that are activated by special snowflakes that can be revealed by forming clusters on top of them (they're buried beneath random symbols). There are various modifiers to claim depending on the one you locate:

Blue Snowflake: removes all regular icons from the game area and replaces them with new ones via the tumble mechanic:

Green Snowflake: grants you up to 15 extra wilds.

Red Snowflake: adds a giant sign (3x3 to 5x5 positions), making it easier to create a cluster.

Purple Snowflake: turns a single type of icon into a bonus wild in all locations where it appears.

Yellow Snowflake: this one adds 2x2 icons to the game area in several locations.

Theme and Design

It's a game that focuses on the classic appearance of Christmas, so what you'll see on the reels will come as no surprise. 

The visuals are quite nice, with cartoon-style symbols appearing on the reels. The actual symbols include four Christmas baubles (red, blue, orange, and green), toys (train, plane, and teddy), while Santa Wild serves as the feature symbol.

Conclusion

Santa's Wonderland appears to be a wonderful slot machine to try out, particularly if you come across it during the festive season as the theme matches your mood.

There are a lot of cool features inside, as well as some great prizes which make it a good game for all levels of players
