Christmas Morning Slot Review
Jump out of bed and run downstairs to see what Santa has left under the tree for you in Christmas Morning, courtesy of Red Tiger!
The morning of Christmas Day is a particularly special time, especially if you have children. Hearing the pitter-patter of little feet running to the Christmas tree to see what Santa has left underneath it, and seeing their faces light up is by far the most rewarding feeling, so much so that you instantly forget the 4am wake-up call.
Red Tiger is harnessing this feeling and incorporating it into their very own Christmas Morning slot, where stacks of Presents fill the reels to reveal High and Low-paying symbols. Present symbols become part of something bigger in Free Spins, where they contribute towards filling a special Meter that removes the Lowest-paying symbols from play.
Will Santa leave us plenty of Presents under the tree this year? Let’s play on and find out!
Christmas Morning Base Game and Features
Christmas Morning is a 5-reel Video Slot with 10 fixed pay lines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols land anywhere on the reels, on adjacent reels.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€20 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. This game has a theoretical RTP of 95.69% and a max win cap of 3,002x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Train, followed by the Horse, Bear, and Snow Globe. Low-paying symbols fall to Stars, Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, and Clubs. There are no Wilds present.
During gameplay, a number of Present symbols can land randomly across the reels. When this happens, they will reveal the same High or Low-paying symbol, with the possibility of enhancing or creating a winning combination.
Christmas Morning Free Spins
Landing 3 Scatters during the base game triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 12 Free Spins. Every Scatter that lands after the 3rd will award an additional +3 Free Spins, up to a maximum of 18.
During Free Spins, all Present symbols that land will fill a special Progress Meter atop the reel set. Filling the Progress Meter with 14 Present symbols will transform the lowest-paying symbol into Presents. This feature can happen multiple times, as long as the Progress Meter is filled.
Once a symbol is transformed into a Present, the original symbol can no longer land on the reels or be revealed by a Present symbol for the remainder of Free Spins. The Progress Meter will continue to fill until all symbols except the Highest-paying symbol are transformed into Presents.
Christmas Morning Bonus Buy
Those outside the UK will benefit from a Bonus Buy option. Red Tiger has granted players access to 2 Bonus Buy options as follows.
- Presents Feature – Guarantees to land a number of Present symbols for 10x your bet.
- Free Spins – Triggers the Free Spins round with 3 or more Scatters for 70x your bet.
Christmas Morning: Our Verdict
Red Tiger may not have captured the magic of a Christmas morning, yet there’s still some fun gameplay at hand here. We don’t come across a slot that has a Pay Anywhere mechanic that often, but when we do, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.
The Presents Feature, to put it bluntly, is just another glorified Mystery Symbol feature. If you’re happy with such a feature, then you’ll feel right at home here. However, during Free Spins, these Mystery symbols contribute towards something bigger and better.
Each present symbol that lands in Free Spins will enhance your position on the Progress Meter. When filled with 14 of them, the Lowest-paying symbol will be removed and swapped out for more Presents, eventually leaving the highest-paying symbol on the frontline.
Given how exciting the Free Spins round is, it’s hard to come to comprehend that the best max win Christmas Morning can produce is 3,002x. We’ve tried and tested many Christmas slots and we have to say that Christmas Morning sits somewhere at the bottom of the list.
