Betsafe Casino has already added the brand new Secrets of Christmas slot from NetEnt to their casino ahead of the official release date on the 30th of November, this is along with several other new and interesting slots including Viking Fire ( Lightning Box Games) and Apollo (Leander) and the most recent Warlords slot from NetEnt.
Secrets of Christmas is a regular 5×3 reel 25 payline slot that seasoned players will recognise has features and bonus rounds very similar to the fantastic Secrets of the Stones slot, so whilst we have in essence a re-skinned slot there a couple of subtle differences in the bonus rounds along with a visually well designed Christmas themed slot.
The base game has plenty of wild symbols on the reels along with some fairly decent paying high paying symbols, with the Christmas Bell paying 50x stake for 5 of a kind.
The main attraction to this slot though is the free spins bonus round and “picking” round that occurs before this, where players can receive additional wild symbols, wild reels, multipliers and more free spins on top of the initial 10 free spins.
The bonus round can be triggered by landing 3 or more the special Scatter symbols on the reels, and if you trigger the bonus round with extra Scatters this will grant you additional picks in the bonus round for each extra Scatter symbol up to the maximum of five.
The bonus round features including the picking bonus are shown off well in the promotional video below.
Secrets of Christmas Slot – Free Spins Bonus Round
When the bonus round is triggered the player zooms inside the Christmas themed house and gets to pick from a selection of presents at a time, you start the bonus round with an initial 10 free spins and a 1x multiplier value, by revealing the presents various boosts to the bonus round will be given.
- Extra Free Spins – up to 10 extra free spins
- Extra Wild Symbols – Candle and/or Bell symbols
- Multipliers – 1x or 2x
- Wild Reels – on reels 2 and/or 4
The “picks” to really get excited about are a combination of the elusive Wild Reels along with multipliers or lots of extra spins which can result in some really impressive wins.
The Theoretical RTP (Return To Player) for Secrets of Christmas is a very decent 96.7%.
Nothing groundbreaking from NetEnt in terms of the bonus features on offer, as this is pretty much “Secrets of the Stones in a seasonal setting”, as you would expect though from NetEnt the visuals and animations are fantastic, the theme, music and sound effects of this slot are all very fitting for the Christmas period making it well worth checking out if you are already in the festive mood.
