Some Old Time Christmas Online Slots

 

The first video slots were a little different. They did not have any bonus features but within the simplicity the slots usually had high volatility. There were many Christmas themed slot games then, as there are now. If you want to go back to the early years of online casino gaming you can try the following festive slots.

Santa arrives with the familiar Ho Ho Ho and this is the title of the first of the video slots. The bright and bold symbols create the festive cheer. They include Rudolph, Santa’s sleigh loaded with gifts, Christmas tree, turkey, roly poly pudding, cookies and milk, ginger bread man and candy bar. Santa Claus is the wild symbol and also awards the highest line payouts. Santa starts paying out with a combination of two symbols. With five symbols the payout is a massive 15,000 times the line bet. Two or more gift scatter symbols award payouts that are multiplied by the total bet. Three or more of scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger 20 free spins at doubled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered. Ho Ho Ho has the initial version of the Microgaming gamble game. You can try guessing the colour of the next card. If you are right then the payout will be doubled. If you guess wrong you will lose the payout. Ho Ho Ho has 15 selectable paylines with a maximum total bet of $300.

In Santa Paws the polar animals are celebrating Christmas. The polar bear Santa Paws is the wild symbol and also awards the highest line payout of 4000 coins. The whale with the red nose and antlers pulls the sleigh. It awards the second highest line payout of 1000 coins. It becomes an additional wild symbol during the free spins. The animals include silver fox, walrus, snow owl and rabbit. The low paying symbols are playing card icons covered with snow. The penguin awards the scatter payouts multiplied by the total bet and triggers 12 free spins with an up to 7 times multiplier. Santa Paws has the full Microgaming gamble game. If you want a go at quadrupling your payout then you should try guessing the suit of the next card. Santa Paws has 20 selectable paylines with a maximum total bet of $100.

Both these online pokies can be played at Microgaming online casinos like 32Red, Royal Vegas and Spin Palace. Some other older Christmas themed slots are Gift Rap, Jingle Bells and Deck the Halls.
