Not quite the ho ho ho we were expecting as this Wild Stocking slot is more style than substance, with expanding wilds but little more.
The Wild Stocking mobile slot is a 5×4 reel, 1024 ways to win game that gives you an Expanding Wild in the base game and the Free Spins. During the free spins, you get multipliers on the wild symbol.
In theory, this Christmas slot should be, if not great, at least very playable. The minimum bet of 0.50 is a little high, but not dramatically so for so many ways to win, and the slot theme is beautiful.
Father Christmas is the highest paying symbol on the reels, followed by Rudolph, an elf, and a snowman. You then have a candle, a lolly, heart, spade, club, and diamond completing the paytable.
This Wild Stocking slot game has two ways to make you spend more money. You can click the Superstake button and double your bet, giving you extra prizes on the reels.
What that means we don’t know, but having played both versions we got slightly bigger wins during the bonus rounds. Slightly. To be honest it hardly seemed worthwhile as the paytable didn’t double.
Then, for 100x your bet you can buy the free spins bonus, which might seem good because that’s where you get the big multipliers. But are the multipliers worthwhile?
The good news is that the wild symbol helps give you wins throughout and the click me bonus adds 10x your bet here and there.
It keeps the base game going, but it’s only when you get 3 or more scatters and trigger the free spins bonuses that things get a little more interesting.
Because during the Wild Stocking free spins the expanding wild symbols can have a random multiplier of 2x to 5x. It helps the paytable pop a little bit, but with a low RTP of 93.49%, it just doesn’t pop enough.

Expanding Wild: The wild will expand and cover the whole reel if a win can be made. The wild will replace all other symbols on the reel to create a win. The scatter symbol and bonus symbol cannot be replaced by the wild.
Pick and Click: Three bonus symbols landing in view activate the Pick and Click game. Choose from one of 6 stockings to get a cash prize.
Super Stake: Doubling your bet gives you a bonus that delivers extra prizes.
Free Spins with Multiplier Wilds: 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger 10 free spins. 4 or 5 triggers 12 or 15 free spins. Multiplier expanding wild symbols will land on all reels but reel 1. The multiplier can be x2, x3, or x5.
Buy Feature: for 100x your bet you can buy the free spin bonus feature.
With a classic design and classic features, this Wild Stocking slot machine should be a slam dunk for a Christmas casino slot.
It's a shame that the RTP is only 93.49%, as we would have then given this slot review an extra star.
As it stands, with that super stake stealing your cash, and the wins rarely making it to over 100x your bet, we just didn't quite get the joy we were hoping for.
