Plenty of Presents Slot Review 2021

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, Microgaming partner Just For The Win has a gift for everyone in Plenty of Presents!

It’s always great when the festivities start coming out in the slot world.

Although the shelf life of these sorts of slots are shorter than almost every other, we still appreciate them for what they are, and it certainly helps you to feel festive in time for the holiday period.

The Christmas Slots that we’ve seen so far haven’t exactly been riddled with potential, for the most part they’re just a fun and silly way to enjoy a spin of the reels around Christmas, but the statistics for Plenty of Presents suggests serious potential.

We’re excited to see what’s under the tree..let’s just hope it’s not a lump of coal!

Plenty of Presents Base Game

Plenty of Presents Theme

Christmas themed slot games are coming out of the woodwork in the lead up to Christmas, with Plenty of Presents being another welcome addition to the festive collection.

As you’d expect, Plenty of Presents has a jolly theme to go with its jolly design. In the window behind the reels you’ll see a cold and dark night, but the warmth of the christmas tree and the presents underneath it gives Plenty of Presents that cozy feel

Plenty of Presents Betting and Symbols

Plenty of Presents has a variety of betting options for players to choose from. For those who prefer a lower stake, the minimum bet available is £0.20 per spin. For those who prefer a higher stake, the maximum bet available is £10 per spin, which is high enough for most, but low considering the maximum stakes on other slots.

The ‘super high rollers’ are probably few and far between, so the absence of stakes higher than this won’t disappoint many.

As we turn our attention to symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Plenty of Presents is the Bell, followed by the Candle, the Christmas Cookie and the Bauble.Lower paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack.

Wild symbols substitute for all symbols except Scatters and Multiplier Wild symbols.

Plenty of Presents Base Game and Features

Plenty of Presents is a 5 reel slot with 10 fixed paylines. To form a win you will need to connect 3 or more of the same symbols from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.

Christmas is all about the giving and receiving of gifts and Just For The Win are living up to that! The base game in Plenty of Presents isn’t as exciting as waking up on Christmas morning, but when you take into consideration the Multiplier Wilds and Here Comes Santa Claus Feature, it’s not far off.

Multiplier Wilds

During the base game, 3 individual Multiplier Wilds can land on certain reels.

  • Regular Wilds – Can land anywhere on all 5 reels.
  • Multiplier Wilds – x2 and x3 Multiplier Wilds can land anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4.

During Free Spins, x1, x2, x3, x4 and x5 Multiplier Wilds can be awarded.

Here Comes Santa Claus Feature

On any random spin in the base game, the Here Comes Santa Claus Feature can be triggered.

Santa can whoosh across the screen in his sleigh at any given time and drop 2-4 Scatter symbols on any of the reels, in any position.

It’s always great to have a random feature which drops in Scatter Symbols. It’s immensely exciting to see Santa Fly across the screen, but infuriating when it still doesn’t land.

It’s sort of a double-edged sword in a way.

Plenty of Presents Free Spins

Landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters on any of the reels will award 8, 15 and 30 Free Spins resepectively.

If Scatter symbols land during the Bonus round, additional Free Spins will be awarded. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Scatters award an additional 2, 5, 8, 15 and 30 Free Spins!

Jingle Wilds

Before every spin, during Free Spins, each visible Scatter symbol will trigger Jingle Wilds.

All Scatters and symbols adjacent to them will convert into x1 Multiplier Wilds. If Multiplier Wilds are already adjacent to the Scatter symbols, these will then upgrade to the next, more valuable Multiplier Wild. Symbols can upgrade more than once if they are adjacent to more than one Scatter.

All Multiplier Wild symbols will remain on the reels for the duration of Free Spins.

The x5 Multiplier Wilds cannot be upgraded any further.

Plenty of Presents Our Verdict

Plenty of Presents does well to add to the festivities with great graphics, jolly music and a warm and welcoming demeanour. In this regard, we feel like Just for the Win has pulled off a Christmas slot quite well. But how does it measure up in terms of gameplay?

Plenty of Presents shows plenty of potential at times, but in other regards its fairly disappointing. One of the worst thing about it is the illusion of a screen choc full of Wilds in the Bonus.

Scatters transform into Wilds, and for a split second you think you’ve just completed the game. There’s Wilds absolutely everywhere, and just as you’re about to celebrate your new found wealth it spins again…because the Wilds do not count for that spin, they’re simply adding more Wilds to the reels. It’s very misleading to say the least.

This aside, Plenty of Presents can certainly perform once those Wilds do actually come into play, and the wins can soon mount up if you upgrade the Wild to their multiplier variants.

25,000x is the stated win potential for this one, and while we ‘re skeptical that it could actually reach this figure, there’s no doubt in our mind that Plenty of Presents could well set you up for Christmas if the conditions are right.
