“Fat Santa is on his way, so keep your eyes peeled for his sleigh!” Which is exactly what you’ll do as you watch this Fat Santa mobile slot eat its way into your heart.
Push Gaming wrote a whole poem for this Christmas themed phone slot, and we can’t help but be enchanted by any studio that loved the holiday season this much.
“He can’t get enough of the Christmas Pies, even as he soars through the skies.”
And that’s true. He does soar over these 5 reels and 50 paylines, dropping 2 to 5 extra Christmas pie wilds over the grid, with pretty baubles, wrapped gifts, and elves covering the reels.
Much like the Jingle Spin slot is EggOmatic re-skinned, so this Fat Santa video slot is not wholly original and is a re-skin of the Fat Rabbit slot machine. To be honest, even the theme is a little cartoony and doesn’t give you the warm glow of something like the Merry Xmas slot game by Play’n GO.
“If you can feed him, prepare to cheer; the massive wins are almost here!
Bigger and bigger he will grow! How big you ask? We don’t know!”
But you won’t care when you hit the free spins bonus because you’ll remember why this real money casino game is so much fun. Every Christmas pie wild will be eaten by Santa, and every 4th pie he will grow in size.
Father Christmas, in this case, can get big enough to cover the entire 5×5 grid slot, giving you the kind of wins that would make you the biggest, best Noel.
Which isn’t bad for a medium variance game; especially when you think that the Vikings slot by NetEnt has 10,000 times your bet winbut is a VERY volatile game in comparison.
“It’s time to celebrate and shout!
Generous wins are what Christmas is all about!”
And generous wins are what you get; though we wouldn’t recommend you use the ‘buy feature’ button because at 80x your bet it’s no guarantee.
Yes, we’ve won 300 times our bet when we get Santa that turns into 3×3 Mega wild square – but in playing for it for over an hour we never got him any bigger.
Even still, getting a 3×3 Santa is no guarantee and hard to do. So be careful with this one, and enjoy a fun light base game with some huge free spins from time to time.

Wilds: The Christmas pie is the wild in the base game and can be used to replace any other symbol over any of the 50 paylines.
Fat Santa Sleigh: Randomly during any spin, St Nick and his reindeers will pop up on the screen and drop 2 to 5 extra wilds on the grid.
Fat Santa Free Spins: Get Santa symbol and just one wild on the screen and you start 5 free spins.
However, you really want more than one wild, because the first thing this greedy man is going to do is head toward the Christmas pies and eat them.
Santa is now wild and moves to wherever the next pies show up. Every 5 pies he eats he increases in size; so at first he covers one symbol, then a 2x2 symbol space, then 3x3, then 4x4 and finally 5x5.
You never (or very rarely) get to that magical 5x5, but just getting the 3x3 is good enough to give you massive wins.
Everytime Santa wild grows you also get an additional 3 spins.
Buy Feature: For 80 times your bet you can buy the free spin bonus feature.
The festive theme here is a little cartoony and a little generic, but we didn't really care as we spun a light fun base game, looking to get those magical free spins.
The Fat Santa slot on mobile is a 5x5 grid game with 50 paylines, lots of extra wilds, and a Mr Claus that will literally grow as he eats pies during the free spin bonus game. What's not to love?
Granted, you'll be tempted to buy the free spin bonus feature to try and catch those magical big Santa wilds, but we'd edge on the side of caution with this video slot; it's still a mid variance machine after all.
If you like unusual Christmas games we'd also recommend Ho Ho Tower by Elk Studios.
