Waiting for the turkey to be stuffed and the chestnuts to roast? Wait no more as we give you the best 2017 mobile slots for Christmas.
A tradition as old as time (or… euh… 2014), each year we put together the definitive list of the slot machines to play to put you in a Christmas mood.
These are genuinely festive slots for mobile and online, which celebrate all that the joyful season has to offer.
So Bah Humbug types are better off chopping heads in the Highlander Microgaming game, because all you’ll find here is red baubles, green trees, and golden fairy lights.
Every year we do it a little differently. Back in 2014 when there wasn’t a great choice of Christmas phone slots, we did a Festive Fun or Summer Fun edition.

How times have changed. Now almost every single software provider fights to get your attention this festive season; but not always in the best way.
And with Eighty-six per cent of you are still enjoying the festive period and 39 per cent saying it’s their favourite time of the year, is it any wonder?
And by real, we mean, not an old game where they’ve added Christmas hats to the characters.
We got a few complaints in our post last year, when we included the Flowers slot Christmas Edition and the Taco Brothers by Elk Gaming suddenly ‘Saving Christmas’.
Basically, just because it’s an old favourite, doesn’t mean you get to cheat yourself onto the list.
The themes have to be specific to Noel, Xmas, Yuletide, and the big fat man in red.
Playtech are the biggest losers, and whilst they’ve usually managed to sneak a game or two on the list every year, like back in 2015 with Santas Gift, this year there was too much competition.
A simple no deposit bonus to try all that Vera & John has to offer.
NextGen also obviously lose out, as ‘A very Foxin Christmas’ and ‘Merlin’s Magic Christmas Respins’ which you’ll see front and centre at casinos like Rizk, are really just Foxin Wins and Merlin’s Magic Respins in disguise.
Providers like Yggdrasil and Thunderkick didn’t even put themselves in the game, having made no slot where there’s a single winter feeling, except for possible the Winterberries game, but again – feels a little like cheating.
And it’s not just small studios; big ones like Williams Interactive and IGT have never really got involved in the holiday season, because, we suppose, it’s easier to be a grinch when you have some of the most popular 2017 games online.
That’s the biggest quality we look for here. Santa can be laughing the whole way through, but it has to be on the way to the bank, not at your foolish face.
But playing them is the Christmas gift equivalent of getting socks; not without value, but not exactly exciting Christmas games for the whole family.
One of the biggest selection of slots games at only one casino
And we mean that in both ways; ie. they have to be mobile and online slots; not just one or the other.
So many great Microgaming slot games never made it on the list because of it; from Secret Santa to the Ho Ho Ho online games.
Ultimately, if these Yuletide slot games can’t be played on all devices, from iPads, iPhone, Android phones, tablets and Windows… then they are simply not good enough for our 2017 best Xmas games list.
So, without further ado, here’s our definite list of the games you’ll be playing this December.
It’s got to beat watching every single Christmas advert on TV though, right?
We start our list with a fairly low variance easy going Pragmatic Play games.
The top win here is around 400x your bet, so don’t expect to walk away as rich as the big man in red himself (how else can he afford all those toys?), but there’s plenty of festive cheer here.
That’s because this Santa mobile slot comes with stacked wilds over 40 paylines, and an in-game jackpot that pays as much as 250x your bet.
And whilst we might only have the name thanks to the Dutch and our misunderstanding of their St Nick “Sinterklaas” pronunciation, this Father Christmas is one jolly fellow we like to have around.
Perfect for: Taking a few quick spins when you’re in a rare bathroom break from the family.
This Microgaming phone slot machine has to be one of the more consistent on our list, year after year.
It is also, probably the oldest, but don’t let that turn you away. After all, isn’t Christmas time all about bringing back old traditions year after year?
The top win here is not much more than in the Santa game, but this is far more beautiful with scenes straight out of a Hallmark card, and 2x multiplier on the wild and on the free spins.
The Decks the Halls slot is a traditional game for traditional slot players.
Perfect for: Once you’ve finished decking your halls, take some well deserved festive spins.
Play’n GO game studios love the season having not one but two machines in our most festive slots of 2017 list.
This Holiday Season online game up the ante in your slot playing ways by giving you a top win of 10,000 times your bet thanks to their novel ‘win spin’ free spins; ie. every spin guarantees a win.
Add some stacked wilds, and just 10 paylines (making the minimum bet only 0.10 a spin) this is fun for everyone, regardless of your budget.
Don’t let the generic name and graphics bring you down; this is wonderful Holiday fun.
Perfect for: When you can’t get down to the pub with your mates and need to find something else to entertain you.
This is the first and only time that Red Tiger Gaming got into our list, and at number four no less, but why not add a new tradition onto the mix? Better than burning giant Swedish goats or the evil Christmas devils of Austria.
With a roaring fire to the left and a Christmas tree to the right, you can cosy up in your favourite armchair and pretend the whole world is lost in a warm Yuletide glow.
And with four random bonus features, and a click me game where you move Father Christmas across the nighttime rooftops for 800x your bet win, this has more than enough action to keep you spinning.
This Jingle Bells slot is one of those rare games where the free spins bonus rounds are the least interesting part of the whole machine.
Perfect for: Cosy nights in on the couch when the Christmas movies just don’t cut it.
Considering this is such a simple game, some of you might be surprised to find this Merry Xmas slot game, once again, near the top of our list.
But that’s because it fits all our criteria:
Lovers of bonus game slot features should probably move on, as ‘all’ you have in this Merry Xmas slot are stacked symbols with random wild multipliers, but we love it.
Sometimes, in the chaos that is Noel, it’s nice to be reminded that the simple things are what matters most.
Perfect for: When Christmas starts to stress you out, and you need 20 minutes to yourself.
NetEntertainment’s one and only true Christmas mobile slot, it’s no wonder it’s near the top of our list.
Mostly, if we are honest, because it’s a copy of the brilliant Secret of the Stones online game, which is probably one of their best.
However, as you look through the window pane of a snow capped house, you can’t help but wonder what secrets and presents lie inside.
Wonder no more as you enter for an incredible free spin round full of surprises, with extra wilds, wild reels, multipliers and more in this Secrets of Christmas slot machine.
Perfect for: In-between basting the turkey and roasting potatoes, there’s a little time to distract yourself with NetEnt.
A festive online slot with a twist, this is as non-traditional as you get.
Instead of chestnuts and roaring fireplaces, you get… high rise towers in the middle of a city.
Oh there’s candy canes, and snow, and presents, but with a slightly Asian twist as the ying and yang symbol show up, and instead of a pine, we decorate a bonsai tree.
There’s not even any free spins bonuses. Can you imagine that?
This might not be the most traditional of all the games on our list, but you know what? Breaking convention is what Elk slot studios do best.
It still feels incredibly festive, whilst giving us an alternative glow of excitement as the lights and shine of the big city bring you over 3,000 times your bet.
How you ask? By frequent hitting wheel of fortune mini-games that spin way up in the skiyto give you instant cash. It’s far more exciting than you’d think.
Perfect for: When you’ve had enough of the Christmas cheer, and want to escape, whilst still staying true to the generous festive spirit.Start Playing at Casumo »
