Play'n Go are getting all fruity and festive with their most recent slot – Xmas Joker – set for release on November 19th. I've never been a huge fan of Christmas edition slots but I'm hoping Play'n Go manage to get me into the spirit of giving with this game as Eye of the Kraken is one of my all time favourites. And by giving, I mean taking money from casinos. Lets take a look at what Xmas Joker has to offer.
Preview: At a Glance
Okay so first things, this slot harks back to the days of old when fruity machines were physical beings that stood sentinel in the dark corners of pubs.
The layout is a classic 3×3 meaning quick spins and thrills across 5 fixed paylines. Hit three symbols diagonally or horizontally and you're on to a winning spin.
Symbols include gingerbread men, stars, presents, baubles and almost everything has ribbons on. You get the picture, its a Christmas game.
There really isn't much more to say about this one, so we'll take a closer look at a couple of key features after noting that the animation looks like your standard cheesy holiday slot, but that's not to say it isn't worth playing.
- Joker Free Spins: When three joker symbos appear on the reels in any position the slot will trigger ten free spins.
- Christmas Gifts: Hit two or more gift symbols and you'll be rewarded with a win anywhere between 1-100 times your bet!
- Free Spin Gifts: During the free spins mode if you hit three gift symbols you'll win a mystery prize *audible gasps*. You'll also get ten more free spins. Winner. You can earn up to 50 consecutive free spins in this mode.
