NetEnt has released the Wonders of Christmas slot game, a 5 reel, 20 fixed bet lines machine with a warming Christmas theme that could land you wins up to 100,000x your bet thanks to free spins with up to 1,000x win multipliers.
With snow falling and glowing wreaths on either side of the five-reel layout, NetEnt brings an air of festive atmosphere to this Wonders of Christmas slot as you wonder what wins you can truly get.
Well, with a 3, 4,5,4, 3 reel layout, it’s not your ordinary five reel slot, but you will find common A-10 symbols mixed among the high-paying Santa sleighs, snow globes, gingerbread houses, toy trains, and Christmas stockings.
It’s a beautiful slot game that hides a few interesting slot features.
One feature that can enhance your slot experience two-fold is that of the gifts that show up.
They can either be collected, with every 200 increasing a free spins win multiplier up to a max 1,000x. Or land a gift inside a golden frame, which could turn into a Wild symbol, which will turn all symbols in adjacent golden frames Wild too.
The Wild feature shows up often during your base game spins but don’t expect that win multiplier to creep up too high or get close to that 1,000x multiplier which could take 17 fillings of the progression meter to achieve.
Free Spins slots provide added value entertainment, which you get in this free spin bonus feature.
Unlike other slots on mobile, it’s not free spins of the same reels with the same symbols. Instead, NetEnt has gone along the same lines as in the Divine Fortune slot. You’ll get a new set of reels where each reel space individually spins to reveal a coin or holly symbol.
You aim to find as many golden coins as you can. With each new coin found resetting the free spins back to three, it can continue for a while. In the end, the coins will flip, rewarding you with instant wins.
If you’ve managed to rack up a good win multiplier, it will come into play by multiplying the total of the coins by the multiplier for a bigger win.
Does that happen often? Nope. But anything over 1,000x your bet is a great round here.
Wonders of Christmas is a fun addition to our Christmas slots list that can bring a few surprises, but you will need patience to see the big rewards.

Wilds: The Golden Gift symbol is Wild and can substitute for all except Christmas tree bonus scatters.
Gift Symbols: Gift symbol scatters lan across all 5 reels. When they do, they will be collected and add 1 to the Progression Meter above the reels. They will also leave behind a golden frame on the reels on which they land, which remains in place until a feature is triggered.
Land a gift symbol in a golden frame, and it will either add between 1 and 4 to the progress meter or turn into a golden Wild symbol. If it turns golden, it will turn Wild and all adjacent golden frames into Wild symbols.
Free Spins Multiplier: Once the progress meter is full, it will increase the Free Spins Win Multiplier displayed at the top right of the screen. Each time the progress meter gets filled without triggering the free spins, it will increase by x1, x2, x3, x5, x7, x10, x12, x15, x20, x30, x40, x50, x75, x100, x200, x300, x500, x750, x1000. Once free spins are triggered, the win multiplier resets to 0.
Free Spins: 3 Christmas Tree Scatters on reels, 2,3, and 4, activate the free spins bonus game. Here you'll get 3 free spins where all positions spin individually, landing a golden coin or holly symbol.
All golden coin symbols that land on a spin lock in position and stay for the duration of the free spins. They also reset the free spins back to 3. The game ends when no more coins land or all reels fill with gold coins. The coins then reveal between 0.5x and 50x multipliers, which are tallied up and then multiplied by the overall win multiplier.
If you like to play Christmas slots throughout the holiday season, NetEnt's Wonders of Christmas slot contains a few surprises.
With a low 0.10 minimum bet, you'll get to experience those gifted Wilds from time to time and hopefully hit the free spins.
However, that top win of 100,000x and that 1,000x free spins win multiplier aren't dreams worth chasing due to the high variance nature of this video slot.
