Slot Name: Santastic
USA Players: Accepted
Santastic gives you a Christmas themed slot machine, and the surprising part is that RTG managed to create a pretty good experience even though this is a slot with only 3 reels. The quality of the design is miles ahead of the vast majority of the classic slots. You have 5 paylines in the game, and you can win $600 at most from it.
You will be happy to hear that Santastic is made available to all US players, and that you can find it at any RTG powered casino.
Betting & Jackpots
It’s not an expensive slot machine, using 5 coins for 5 paylines, and allowing for the denomination to range from $0.10 to $1. Your largest bet will be at $5.
The progressive jackpot is the biggest prize on the line here, while the alternative is a 600 coins jackpot, which uses two different wilds on the same line with a Santa icon.
Though this is not normal for a classic slot, Santastic gets two different wild symbols, one with a 2x multiplier, the other with 3x. They can work together, so if you have both a 2x wild and a 3x wild on the same line, the combination will pay 6x the usual amount. The only symbol they can’t replace is the Jackpot icon.
A feature called Festival Feast is also triggered, the requirement being for a combo of three symbols to form. The Jackpot icon is the only one that doesn’t trigger the feature. A random prize will be chosen, offered on top of the cash reward from the combo. You can get 3 to 25 free spins, no bonus, 1 to 3 Jackpot spins or a payout of 2,500x.
As I’ve mentioned, you will find that this is one of the best looking classic titles available these days. If we look only at the classic 3 reel slots with a Christmas theme, I’d wager that this is the best looking one available anywhere. It has only Christmas themed symbols, it has snow and red houses in the background, plus two Bonus Meters sign posts on both sides of the reels.
It’s a game that I’d love to try again during the winter holidays, when it would feel just right. It’s much better than you’d expect when you first hear that it has only 3 reels.
