Santa swaps his reindeer for a Harley-Davidson in a 243-payline festive treat
Santas Wild Ride Slot Review
What We Say -Cars and Planes may have developed dramatically over the last half-century. And yet Santa persists in using that grotty old sleigh. Microgaming obviously feel it's time he changed, and this game sees him swapping his humble bells for an ultra-powerful Harley Davidson. Many of the symbols are rich in food content, although this particular Santa likes his beer and overstuffed sandwiches alongside the more traditional mince pies and cup cakes. Even Mrs Claus, it would appear, has become rather less wholesome. For those who like their Santa to be very much on the Bad side, this is an extremely amusing slot, and is full of deft touches - we like the motorcycle ignition keys, moulded into the shape of a reindeer, for instance.
It's not just a matter of fun graphics and sound, though, and there are some inventive twists throughout the game. The Wild isn't, in itself, any different from your typical everyday Wild. However, its Mystery Multiplier (which can be as high as 4x) means you never quite know how great a Wild combo is going to be. There are 243 paylines, as well, so you can unwrap some stonking combos. The really valuable prize, though, is the Free Spins Round. It's not just the very generous 25 spins handed to you, but the fact that you can choose a more exotic brand of Wild to play with throughout the free spins. So you can have Stacked Wilds (a mainstay of Microgaming's range). Alternatively, you can get Expanding, or even Trailing Wilds that slip down the reel, leaving Wilds behind them.
Everything adds up to a fast, funny and varied game. Of the Christmas-themed slots we've tried, this is one of the ones (along with Secret Santa) that we could see ourselves playing again and again - well into January and beyond.
How to Win - The Santa's Wild Ride Logo is the Wild, and substitutes for most other symbols. It comes with a mystery Multiplier between 2x and 4x. Three Sets of Reindeer Key Scatters activate Free Spins Bonus Round - offering 25 free spins and a 2x Multiplier, and a choice of additional Wilds - Stacked, Expanding, or Trailing. Two Santa Gift Scatters earn you a bonus prize.
