Our favorite slot game theme must surely be the Christmas one. Come November each year – yes, we know it’s early – we prepare to review all the new slot game releases.
The Jingle Slots game isn’t new, but it does call for a full game review as it is packed with plenty of festive entertainment. So, grab some eggnog, settle down in your Christmas jumper, and get ready for some festive action.
Developer info if you’re curious
We were, and we were glad to see the Jingle Slots game comes from Nucleus Gaming.
Expect a full demo too
This should be your first foray into the reels of the game, as there is plenty to look out for and expect during play. It makes sense to find out everything about it in practice mode first, don’t you think?
This theme is a real gift!
A Christmas gift, of course, and you knew the theme from the second you read the title, we’re sure. That title is a spin on the Jingle Bells song we all know and love.
Expect a superb design
We think this could well be one of the best designs we’ve seen from this developer. The icons on the reels are superb – there is an advent calendar designed to look like a fireplace with gifts in it. There are gifts, toy trains, stockings, and much more besides. You can also spot the usual letters decked out in decorations, as they’re designed to look like fir trees.

There are five reels here but hang on – what’s that over on the right? The five reels each have three symbols appearing on them, but to the right of the fifth reel there is a single space showing just one icon in it. This will only show Santa’s sleigh, which can potentially bring other features. We’ll cover those as we come to them.
There aren’t any progressive jackpot prizes in this slot, but there is a Santa Claus wild symbol involved. This carries a 2x multiplier for all relevant prizes. He’s a powerful guy, as we all know, and in this case, he expands to fill the reel he appears on. He can only appear on the middle reel, but he’s good to see when he does pop up.
The snowman, complete with gloves and earmuffs, is the scatter. Find three and you go through to the free games.
Oh, and we should mention the fact that four of Santa’s reindeer appear in the game too – and they are all wild symbols. Cupid gives a respin, Dasher creates another Dasher wild to join him on that spin, Dancer grants a 3x multiplier for prizes with the reindeer appearing in them, and Rudolph gives you a random instant prize. This could be worth up to 400x your line wager!
How many lines are there?
The paytable confirms the position of 10 lines in this game.
Place those bets
You can spin the reels of this title from 20 cents a time, which covers all those lines. The biggest wager is worth $20.
Don’t miss out on the paytable
This is vital to read before you begin to play. There are features here that you won’t have seen before. Reading through how they work is beneficial, before taking the game through a few practice spins.
The Santa Claus Reward feature
There are four reward levels in this game – bronze, silver, gold, and diamond. The paytable tells us that betting more can unlock a bigger reward in this feature. All levels see Santa’s Sleigh appearing on that small sixth reel, along with wild Santa expanded on reel three.
However, the four levels include one, two, three, and four reindeer, respectively, and they all display their unique bonuses whenever they appear.
Free spins in the Jingle Slots game
Three snowman scatters bring you six freebies to play. Find four or five and your free spin count goes up to 10 or 15, respectively. If the triggering spin sees Santa’s Sleigh turn up on that sixth reel, you’ll double your free spin quantity. That means you’d get 12, 20, or 30 games instead. You can also trigger more spins during the first set.
RTP details for Jingle Slots
We can keep this one short because there are no details for the return to player value here.
Our rating for Jingle Slots
How can we rate this any lower than 10/10? The free spins are superb, the various wild reindeer and their bonus talents are ideal, and you’ve got a wild expanding Santa as well – and we’re not talking about his waistline!
Potential winners should check the paytable and prizes
You should do this before you start playing, so you get a feel for how things are going to work. You will also see that the bet you choose is reflected in the prizes shown in the paytable.
