Top Slots to Play This Christmas: 2020 Edition24 December 2020
With the days drawing shorter and Santa on his way, what could be better than wrapping up warm to try a new slot? The great news for players looking for something exciting to spin over the holiday season is there are plenty of top games to choose from. To shortcut your search, and have you spinning for festive glory, here are three top slots to get you on the way.
Let’s start the list off with something seasonal from developer NetEnt. Aloha! Christmas is a remake of an older slot called Aloha! Cluster Pays, released in 2016. While NetEnt has utilized a Xmas theme, Aloha! Christmas is located on the sunny Hawaiian islands, making it perfect for some hot weather escapism.
- RTP: 96%
- Max win: 1,750x
- Volatility: Medium
As well as the warm theme, players enjoy the same cracking cluster pays system amidst island imagery such as Tikis, coconuts, and tropical fruit. As well as the cascading wins mechanic, Aloha! Christmas is stacked with features such as mystery symbols, multipliers, fantastic Sticky Win Respins, and Free Spins. Everything you need for an exciting time over the holidays.
Proving that is not all Megaways on the Big Time Gaming drawing board, the studio dropped a new mechanic called Megaclusters earlier in the year sending shockwaves around the industry. Cyberslot Megaclusters is the second slot to use the mechanic, and arguably possesses more charm than the original did. Megaclusters is all about squeezing ever more symbols into a single position, radically boosting ways to win as well as payout opportunities.
- RTP: 96.36%
- Max win: 30,000x
- Volatility: high
It might look a little complex at first, but a few spins are all it takes to get comfortable with the rules. A reaction feature means consecutive wins snowball like nothing else when on a roll. While this is going on, a roaming wild constantly leaps around the grid, helping link up wins by increasing a progressive multiplier. Landing enough consecutive wins trigger free spins which are played on an enlarged grid where massive payouts are possible.
Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic
Developer Barcrest certainly knows when they are onto a good thing, releasing yet another game in the wildly popular Rainbow Riches slot range. This one, Rainbow Riches Midnight Magic, manages to be both a modern update while retaining the classic look and feel fans have come to love. Across a 5 reel gird, expect to find plenty of the leprechaun themed magic we all know so well, along with a couple of new twists.
- RTP: 96%
- Max win: 625x
- Volatility: Medium
The newer additions include a Super Dial button which activates a Super Dial Bonus Feature. For an increase in stake, whenever two scatters land, they trigger a bonus wheel that awards cash prizes or free spins. Alternatively, when three scatters land, free spins are awarded where a magical fairy upgrades premium symbols. All up, Barcrest has done a fabulous job of sticking to the spirit of the Rainbow Riches series while adding enough new elements to make it feel fresh.
Well, there you have three of the most exciting games to keep you occupied over the Christmas period. Each one has something different to offer, from a Xmas theme to high volatility/high potential mega thrills, to hearty old school gaming. All in all, 2020 was a fantastic year for slots, and 2021 is shaping up to be even better – stay tuned.
