Secret Santa Slot

It’s that time of year again, there is a slight chill in the air, the shops are packed and everyone is reaching a level of stress never before known to science as the run up to Christmas kicks into full swing. So why not avoid all of that by doing your shopping online and while you’re there, get your Christmas fix from one of the most beautifully designed and cleverly developed Christmas themed games available, Secret Santa from Microgaming.

secretsantaukThere is no progressive jackpot on this game, which obviously reduces the maximum potential winnings but with 1024 different ways to win across 5 reels, you won’t mind. The wins might be thick but they do come fast. Any player can find a comfortable betting level with stakes ranging from 1 cent to 20 cents per payline, up to a maximum of 100 dollars per spin.

You win this game by matching symbols across adjacent reels, more symbols matched equals higher winnings, easy.

Much like other instalments from the Microgaming franchise this game features heavily on Wilds and scatters with similar results to their other instalments. Wilds increase the chance of winning symbol combinations and if you match 5 of these wilds (which are the games logo) during game play you win the high fixed jackpot. The scatter symbol is represented by a Yule Log and three or more of these will result in a potential payout of 10’000 times the bet.

The bonus features in this game, of which there are seven no less, are all triggered automatically and introduce things such as additional Wilds and scatters to the reels but also free spins, scatter payouts and rolling reels so you’ll never get stuck in a rut playing the Secret Santa slot game.

Secret Santa mobile

Unfortunately, there is not yet a mobile version of Secret Santa. It seems unlikely that we will see one, since the game is already old by slot standards and is also targeted to a very specific season, namely Christmas and winter.

Where to play Secret Santa

This Christmas highlight is available at Mr Green, LeoVegas, Betsafe and 888 Casino. You’ll find at plenty of other casinos with a Microgaming platform as well – the list is not exhaustive.


This game is visually pleasing and delightfully festive so light gamers will definitely enjoy the light hearted experience. The low stakes mean it is also a very accessible game, especially for small and mid range spenders so it is definitely worth taking a look at.

There is a massive number of ways to win this game and the jackpot amounts are pretty decent too. The only downside to the game is it becomes somewhat redundant, almost annoying, post December 25th but that shouldn’t stop you today. Enjoy the run up to Christmas by playing what is probably the best Christmas themed slot game available today, maybe Christmas will come early after all?
