As in previous years, I would like to introduce some new Xmas slots to match Christmas Eve.
A few weeks ago we already described Games like Santa vs. Rudolf, Mystical Santa Megaways or Xmas Magic in the weekly slot performances. In this article Casinova present two new Christmas slots and describe a slightly older slot again. We wanted to try the slot machine again because the first test at the launch went rather badly.
Book of Santa by Endorphina
Stakelogic designed a book game called Book of Santa last year. This year, software developer Endorphina has also released a similar slot machine called Book of Santa.
The new slot machine at g has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 fixed paylines. Five numbers and letters were chosen as small symbols. A Christmas sleigh, a star, a bell and Santa Claus can give high payouts. Scatter and wild at the same time is the Book of Santa (a book with a Christmas tree on the cover).
The gameplay is a conventional book game. 3 or more scatters grant 10 free spins. Before the free spins you get an additional scatter, which expands on the whole reel when it appears. It is therefore a Book of Ra of the game principle with Christmas symbols.
If you win, you can also use a card risk game. There you see 5 cards, one face up and the other face down. You now have to choose a card from the 4 cards that is higher in value than the card you revealed. If you can do it, the profit will be doubled.
You can bet between 10 cents and 10 €. The maximum win with a full screen in the free spins is € 50,000, which corresponds to 5,000 times the bet. The payout ratio is theoretically 96%.
A melody from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker was chosen as the background music. The playing field is shown in front of a fireplace, sparks fly up in the background. The animations and sounds are very well done. The gameplay is a book game. I had free spins with the letter “K” on 10 cents after testing after 60 spins. There was a 40-fold win.

The Christmas Slot by Green Jade Games
The Christmas Slot is new from Green Jade Games. The slot machine has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. A green, orange and pink bauble were chosen as small symbols. Middle symbols are a doll, a wooden locomotive and a rocking horse.
There are high payouts for packages with shoes, packages with men’s suits and a Christmas tree with red packages underneath. Santa’s gift bag was chosen as game. A Christmas elf with gifts on his arm serves as a scatter. In addition, a gift with a red bow was selected as the bonus symbol.
- Mega Symbols: 2×2 square symbols can appear on the middle reels.
- Magic Frame: A magic frame can appear during each rotation. If there is a wild in it, symbol enhancements to win (the smallest symbols are converted first), random wilds (3 to 5 wilds) or a bonus wheel (12 sections with coin wins, free spins or the pick-up bonus game) can be granted.
- Santa Bonus: Santa can appear in the base game and award a prize after a spin. There can be 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times the multiplier for winning the slot, or Santa gives 2.5, 5 or 10 times the total bet as a prize. There is a coal as a rivet, but before the gift he reconsiders his decision so that a change is possible.
3, 4 or 5 scatters trigger 10, 20 or 30 free spins. The bonus features should occur more frequently in the free spins. The bonus wheel winnings are also doubled. Free spins can also be extended with Scatter.
If you get 2 bonus symbols in the base game, a selection bonus game is started. You can choose between 3 different packages and win up to 500 times the stake.
You can bet between 20 cents and € 200. The maximum win on the slot is € 100,000, which corresponds to 5 times the bet. The payout ratio is theoretically 97.11%.
It is a classic low variation slot. Due to the magic frame on the field and the wild feature, you always have smaller winnings. I also had the selection bonus game after 30 spins, but there was only a 20-fold win. A lot of effort was put into the animations, and well-known songs such as Jingle Bells or Silent Night were chosen as background music. Christmas spirit quickly arises in the games.

Festive Indulgence from Microgaming
I already described Festive Indulgence as a clone of Lucky Lady’s Charm in early December, but I wanted to try the slot machine again. My first test was relatively modest.
It is a simple 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 9 paylines. 6 letters and numbers serve as small symbols, bell tarts, holiday geese, elves and Santa Clauses are the high symbols. An advent wreath serves as game and a red gift represents the scatter. Game wins are doubled. 3 or more scatters grant 15 free spins with a 3-fold multiplier.
You can bet between 9 cents and 45 € on the slot. The maximum win is € 150,000, which is 3,333 times the stake. The payout ratio is 96.1%.
The slot machine is designed in the form of a shop window. A soothing background music was chosen to suit Christmas. The animations for winnings were kept relatively simple.

What other Xmas slots were there in 2019?
I had already presented a whole series of new slot machines with a Christmas theme in late November and early December 2019. Here I would like to list the most important games again only briefly.
Bally Wulff also offers various Christmas editions of Win Blaster, Ramses Book and other games. Apart from the change of symbols, there are no significant differences.
Today is Christmas Eve. The entire Casinova team wishes you a merry Christmas and happy holidays. In the spirit of “Happy Christmas” and have fun with family and friends for Christmas.
