The tradition of Secret Santa takes place every December in homes and workplaces around Australia and New Zealand. Now you can get into the random gift action with the Secret Santa online pokie which features seven random mystery features that can occur at any time.
The game uses a 4x5 symbol layout which gives you 1024 ways to win on every spin. Jackpots on Secret Santa go as high as 2,300,000 credits which is far bigger than any random gift you're going to pull out of a bag.
Minimum bet on Secret Santa is 50 cents per spin which covers all 1024 ways. You can bet up to 10 credits per way and have the option of credit sizes between 1x and 5c. Maximum possible bet is $25 per spin.
The Secret Santa symbol is wild for all symbols except the scattered Crackers. Getting five wilds on a way pays up to 8,000 credits depending on how many credits per way you play.
5 of a Kind AGAIN!
The 5 of a Kind AGAIN! feature is triggered every time you get a five of a kind of the same symbol without a wild as part of the win. The symbols then re-spin and you get another five of a kind win. The feature does not activate with five wilds or five Crackers.
The Christmas Cracker symbols are scatters and can pay up to 50,000 credits if you're playing max bet. They don't activate any features which is a bit unusual for a pokie game these days.
At any time during regular play the Mystery Bonus can be awarded. You don't need anything on the reels to trigger the feature so this bonus is a lot like the "You Are Lucky" feature on Aristocrat games like More Hearts and Lucky 88. Once triggered you win one of seven features.
- Wild Reels : Up to three reels turn wild
- Scatter Spree : All symbols pay as scatters
- Wild Boost : A random symbol is turned into an extra wild
- Mystery Multiplier : All wins are multiplied by X5 or X10
- Rolling Reels : Cascading wins with increasing multipliers up to X12
- Dashing Wilds : Four random wilds appear on the screen
- Free Spins : Get five free spins with all wins tripled.
The fact that you never know which feature you're going to win really ties in well to the theme although we would have liked to see an option where you could choose which one you want.
