Can you believe Christmas is already on its way? I know I can’t, but that doesn’t stop this year’s delivery of early Christmas games. Get ready for game number one!
How Soon Is Too Soon?
The early bird catches the worm but how soon is too soon and when is it ok to start prepping for Christmas? I mean, we barely got rid of this year’s Halloween candy and Thanksgiving is not even here yet.
We have seen providers starting to drop new Christmas slots earlier and earlier but I’m not sure I’ve seen them roll in this early before.
Today is the official release of this year’s first Christmas game. BetSoft beat everyone to the punch and “Sleighin’ It” has actually been available as an exclusive at BitStarz since last week. However, November 17th is the BIG DAY and with that said, let’s try and switch up the Christmas spirit and take a peek into what Santa and his friends have in store for us this time?
Ho ho ho, here we go!
It’s Magic After All
Believe it or not, as soon as I see the snow, Rudolph and Mr Santa Claus himself, I have to admit feeling time being fast forwarded and the Christmas spirit sneaking up on me. There’s not a lot of other things that can do that so perhaps it’s magic after all.
Volatility: High/ Very High
Mystery Wild Reels Feature
Wild Reels are more than welcome when I play slots and when they are randomly triggered during the base game like it is here, bring them on! At any given time, you can get 1-3 Wild Reels added to your spin so make the most of it. It is Christmas after all.
Stacked Mystery Symbols
Hold on, there’s more in Santa’s sack than Wilds. There’s also plenty of Mystery symbols and they are stacked. Each reel comes with Stacked Mystery symbol positions, which are replaced with a random symbol before the reels start to spin.
All of the Mystery symbols are filled with the same symbol on that spin.
Take Your Pick Free Spins
If it’s Christmas, you can keep the gifts coming. When you land a scatter on reel 1, 3 and 5, get ready for a bonus round of your choice.
What Do You Want for Christmas?
This is what you will see on your screen and what a pleasure it is to be able to decide for yourself. I mean if you trigger the bonus round more than once, you may as well try them all.
Your options are:
- 20 Free Spins with 1 Wandering Wild Reels
- 12 Free Spins with 2 Wandering Wild Reels
- 8 Free Spins with 3 Wandering Wild Reels
Your fourth option is the Mystery Choice. Pick this and you can end up with 8, 12 or 20 Free Spins with 1, 2 or 3 Wandering Wild Reels.
The Power of Three
I decided to go for 8 Free Spins with 3 Wandering Wild Reels, only because I wanted to see as many Wild Reels as possible.
Go Big or Go Home
It’s never a guarantee that 8 spins with more help will get you the biggest win and unfortunately I’ll never know if I made the right choice. Regardless, I’m pretty happy with what I ended up with in the end.
Put a Progressive Jackpot on Your Wishlist This Year
A progressive jackpot will attract a lot of players. You will be happy to know that Santa has brought 4 of them this year and guess what, it’s a mystery! By mystery, I’m referring to the fact that the Progressive Jackpot feature is triggered completely at random in this game. Say what?
That’s right, folks! BetSoft is also saying that your chances of triggering it will rise with the size of your bet. When it’s been triggered, you will get ONE spin on the progressive reel. Your spin will give you the Mini, Minor, Major or the Mega Win!
Christmas Is Already Here
Ok, that’s a bit exaggerated but playing Sleighin’ It did put me in a winter wonderland mindset. There are some fun features in there as well and I think my favorite is the Wandering Wilds during Free Spins.
Whether you’re ready for Santa or not, Sleighin’ It is a fun game and I think you should give it a shot. You can find the game at Cloudbet, Kryptosino and BitStarz among other casino hot spots.
