The season of magic and hope is upon us, and this Xmas Magic mobile slot tries to capture just enough of that to keep you playing.
Opening up this Xmas Magic slot game is the equivalent of wrapping yourself up in a big blanket and putting on the latest Hallmark movie on television, whilst holding some hot cocoa.
Set on a city square, with a big Christmas tree that is only visible if you play in portrait mode, you are surrounded by warm homes, twinkling lights, and snow-capped mountains in the distance.
It’s coming up to midnight, and you know what happens next right? All the good boys and girls will get a visit from Santa Claus in this gorgeous Christmas slot machine.
Despite its warm and cosy theme, be warned that this addition to the Christmas Play’n GO video slots is very volatile. So take a few spins and play carefully.
The good news is that the mechanics in this Xmas Magic slot has enough Christmas surprises that you may not notice straight away. That’s because the highest paid symbol of the lot always comes stacked 4 symbols high. Then in the free spins, another random symbol will also be chosen to be stacked, doubling your chances of a big win.
But that’s not how you find the 4,000 times your bet max win. That’s by catching the 10 free spins bonus with 3 scatters, and at that point, Father Christmas will fly over the screen and drop sets of 2 presents down the chimneys on each spin.
And the present is the wild symbol. So what you get is progressively bigger and bigger stacks of wild symbols on reels 2-5, with two sets of high paying stacked symbol.
That’s how you get yourself a merry little Christmas on this 50 payline Xmas Magic online slot.
We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the free spins come relatively quickly and often – and seeing as that’s where you get truly big wins, that’s definitely a good thing.
The problem is that Santa is a capricious god-like myth. You only get presents if you’ve been good, and in this Magic Xmas slot, that’s not guaranteed.
Yes, the presents are added to the reels, but they don’t always land, and because the free spins come round often enough, it can be a little frustrating to watch – much like the Golden Legend slot game which has almost the exact same mechanics.
If you don’t mind playing on the risky side, this Xmas Magic phone slot will give you more than a little magic, with a slot theme that will allow you to embrace all the best of the holiday season.

Gamble: After any win you can gamble your win in a simple game. You can either guess whether the next card in the deck is red or black or you can guess the suit of the card.
If you guess right you win either double or quadruple your bet (respectively) or, if you guess wrong, then you lose your original win. You can only gamble up to five times in a row for a total prize of 2500 coins.
There's something a little bit magical about this Xmas Magic slot on mobile, and it's not just the beautiful theme that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
This feels like a very natural follow up to the Merry Xmas slot review, where you get the same warm theme but you move the setting from the country to the city, and because of that, it becomes a little more sophisticated.
With 50 paylines and a minimum bet of 0.50, this may not be affordable for everyone, especially as this is a very volatile game.
The good news is that it doesn't feel like as harsh as games like Doom of Egypt also by Play'n GO, because the stack symbols and the bonus free spins keep the action lively and the animations help keep you hooked.
Be careful with your budget, as there's no saying whether this Santa will put those presents under your tree.
