Cash Truck Xmas Delivery Slot Review 2024
Wishing for a magical Christmas this year? Well, don’t hold your breath, there’s a new Santa on the block and he didn’t get the memo. Giving the Grinch a run for his money, this Santa is the new Christmas enemy number one who plans on stealing as many Christmas gifts he can get his grubby hands on.
Quickspin are throwing us right in the middle of a Christmas hijacking, where Santa and his notorious helpers chase down a truck full to the brim with gifts across a frozen lake, making sure they are not delivered to the Village on the other side.
Using the same mechanics that made Cash Truck explode, Cash Truck Xmas Delivery is a seasonal slot with quite an edge, and the modern maths model of 2022 makes Cash Truck Xmas Delivery the ultimate go-to game this Christmas.
Cash Truck Xmas Delivery Base Game and Features
Cash Truck Xmas Delivery is a 5 reel slot with 1,024 Ways to win by default. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minimum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other betting options in between the two. Cash Truck Xmas Delivery has a theoretical RTP of 96.00% and a max win cap of 25,000x.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol is the Character with the Yellow background, followed by the Reindeer, Elf, Sbowman, Gasoline, Flamethrower and Pickaxe. Low-paying symbols fall to Hearts, Diamonds, Spades and Clubs.
There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all other symbols in the paytable except Scatters.
You’ll notice when you play Cash Truck Xmas Delivery that the top 3 reels are covered and inactive, but you can unlock these by forming winning combinations within the active reels, this is called the Expanding Play Area Feature.
Cash Truck Xmas Delivery also features a Tumbling Reels mechanic. This causes winning symbols to disappear, leaving space for symbols above to fill their spaces. The remaining spaces are filled with new symbols, which creates the potential for more than one winning combination per spin.
Tumbling Reels are obviously always a welcome addition to any slot, and Cash Truck Xmas Delivery is no exception!
Expanding Play Area
Every winning combination unlocks 3 random positions, which increases the ways to win as a result.
This can be an exciting features as more and more winning combinations materialise. Obviously more ways to win means a better chance at hitting, so as this feature progresses it can be sort of like a domino effect of hit after hit.
Second Chance Feature
Triggering the Free Spins round requires 3 Scatters to land in view, but not all hope is lost if you only land 2.
The Second Chance feature clears the active play area of all symbols except Scatters. The play area is then expanded by unlocking 3 randomly chosen positions from the Locked Area.
Cash Truck Xmas Delivery: Truck Raider Bonus
Landing 3 or more Scatters across the reels triggers the Truck Raider Bonus round, awarding 3 Free Spins. Any additional Scatters will award an extra Expander symbol (per additional Scatter).
Once active, the Truck Raider Bonus will add 3 Xmas Gift symbols in random positions across the reels. All symbols will display their value in multiplies of the base game per bet.
On each new spin, a new Xmas Gift or Special symbol can appear. Any new symbols that land will remain on the reels for the duration of the Truck Raider Bonus, resetting the Free Spins meter back to 3.
The Special symbols in play are as follows.
- Expander – Unlocks 3 randomly chosen locations from the locked area.
- Booster – The Booster Symbol will add its value to all other symbols within the unlocked play area.
- Super Booster – The Super Booster symbol adds its value to all other symbols within the unlocked play area. This symbol is persistent and will continue to add its value on every spin.
- Grabber – The Grabber symbol adds the values of all other symbols within the unlocked play area to itself.
- Super Grabber – The Super Grabber adds the values of all other symbols within the unlocked play area to itself. This symbol is persistent and will continue to to collect the values of all other symbols on every spin.
- Doubler – The Doubler Symbol has its own value. This value doubles every time the Free Spins meter resets back to 3.
If during the Truck Raider Bonus you reach the maximum win capacity of 25,000x, the Truck Raider Bonus will immediately end and the 25,000x is paid.

Cash Truck Xmas Delivery: Our Verdict
Cash Truck Xmas Delivery arrives just in time for all of the festivities, but is it a preferable game to the dystopian world of Cash Truck?
From the months of November and December it just might be. Christmas Slots are no different to Christmas music in our eyes. When the festive season rolls in we can’t get enough of them, but the thought of playing them in the sombre January is like listening to ‘All I want for Christmas Is You’ in the summer – an unthinkable thing.
It’s humorous ‘Santa behaving badly’ vibes might give it some non-seasonable longevity though. Saint Nicked from Lucksome and Naughty Nick’s Book from Play’n GO are among others to strip Santa of his holly, jolly attitude for Christmas 2022. If you still believe in him then expect coal this year, because according to slot providers he’s turned into a bit of a c**k since 2021.
Anyway. How does Cash Truck Xmas Delivery measure up in terms of gameplay? Cash Truck Xmas Delivery is more of a reskin than it is a reimagining of Cash Truck, but we’re not disappointed. Cash Truck Xmas Delivery is still as imposing as its dystopian sister slot with 25,000x as a maximum win.
Overall, Cash Truck Xmas Delivery might not enjoy as much renown as a slot with appeal all year round, but it’s one of the best if you’re speaking strictly seasonal.
