Xmas Magic Slot Review (Play n Go)

Xmas Magic SlotThe year 2019 is coming to an end, and as is the norm in this industry, developers are looking for ways of cashing in on the festivities that characterise this time of the year. One is through developing Christmas-themed video slots.

A good example is the recent release by Play n Go dubbed Xmas Magic. I’m a staunch gamer who always takes the time to try out new releases by the industry’s most prominent developers.

Here is my review for Xmas Magic:

The first thing that caught my eye is the big payouts that Play n Go offers for this particular slot game. The slot is also highly volatile although the RTP of 96.50% that Play n Go offers for this slot seems to cushion players from its high volatility.

Betting and Prizes

Xmas Magic gives you the opportunity to select the number of betting lines that you wish to play on. The slot has 50 active lines, and betting prices start from $0.01and can go to as high as $100. Although this price is not at the level with other slots from this developer, it has a good jackpot that comes at 4,000xs. This translates to about $400,000.

Xmas Magic Slot Features

There are many reasons as to why Xmas Magic has relatively high volatility. One such reason is the game’s highest value symbol (Mistletoe) that appears stacked. This symbol has the ability to fill the reels and this comes with some awards.

Xmas Magic has another symbol that offers you a Golden Gift, this is actually the game’s wild. You can sue this symbol as a substitute for all other symbols apart from the scatter. The wild is also not available on reel 1.

I was very thrilled with the game’s free spins that awarded me 10 rounds each time I managed to land three Santa scatters on the 1st, 2nd,  and 3rd reels. In addition to the Mistletoe, the slot has another high-value symbol that comes in a stacked version.

What I found very special with this slot is that in the free spins mode, each round comes with extra wilds that are added to the four last reels of the game. With these, you will notice that the existing wilds become much longer, while the stacked symbols continue to increase in size.

In the free spins mode, wilds continue to grow and this is one of the things that boost your chances of getting to the higher wins of 4,000xs.  

Theme & Design

Obviously, what we see here is an inspiration from the traditional Christmas season. It is a classic story that bears a winter setting. At first, I only noticed some boring Royals, but I was surprised to see there are other great symbols on the slot that showered me with gifts. The gifts are offered by Santa, candy cane, snow-globes, mistletoe, hot cocoa, and stockings.


It is without a doubt that Xmas Magic is one of the best releases from Play n Go in the recent past. Although I enjoyed the slot to the fullest, my only concern is its high volatility. You need to seriously consider the options here before committing a substantial amount of money.
