While Albert Heijn renamed the Christmas stollen as 'party toll' and the public broadcaster avoids the word Christmas (or not?), Game developer Netent comes up with the ultimate Christmas slot: Secrets of Christmas.
It doesn't get any more Christmasy than this: Christmas bells, Christmas socks, Christmas candles, Christmas wreaths and of course Santa Claus are on the reels. Or well, roll … You actually look at a snowy living room window with a view of a pine forest.
All beautifully beautifully animated, as we are used to from Netent. And with an atmospheric, winter soundtrack. But is Secrets of Christmas fun to play on?
How does Secrets of Christmas work?
Secrets of Christmas has 25 paylines. The minimum bet is € 0.25 per spin.
Santa Claus counts as Wild (joker). And a scatter symbol (a bag full of Christmas gifts) completes the slot machine.
If you spin three or more scatters, the bonus round starts, consisting of 10 free spins.
But that is not all (for a long time!). Because in addition to those 10 free spins, you also get a number of Christmas gifts. One for every scatter that you run.
The gifts are displayed in the attractive living room – you can choose them yourself. What exactly a gift yields is a surprise.
A gift can give you multipliers, extra Wilds, extra stacked Wilds or extra free spins.
That makes the bonus round much more exciting than just 10 free spins and with a bit of luck very lucrative.
The 1000 spins from Mr. Casino
Mr. Casino played 1000 spins on Secrets of Christmas for this slot review with a bet of € 0.25 per spin.
Mr. Casino only scores its first free spins after 265 spins. In the meantime, some nice prizes have fallen around 5 to 6 euros. Yet Meneer Casino is already € 30 in the min.
During the first feature, Meneer Casino is mainly surprised by the unbeatably beautiful animations. That must see you.
Unfortunately, the first bonus round only generates € 2.20.
After a total of 597 spins, 3 more scatters appear. Mr. Casino first chooses his gifts. He wins extra Wilds, stacked Wilds on the second roll and a multiplier of x2. Then the free spins start, while an up-tempo version of Jingle Bells is playing.
The result is spectacular this time. After 10 spins there is a € 55.30 win on the screen. That is more than 221 times the stake. Ho-ho-ho!
The bonus round then appears twice more, resulting in € 23.60 and € 6.40.
The profit of the free spins therefore varies considerably. The one time you get very favorable gifts, such as the stacked Wilds, the other time Santa Claus is less generous.
Eventually Mr. Casino loses € 29.60.

Mr Casino thinks Secrets of Christmas is a wonderful Christmas gift from Netent!
