Christmas themed casino slots

Christmas themed casino slots

Published by Thisbe Savva, 12 December 2016

You might have noticed that some of our casinos online have created holiday categories to make it easier for you to find Christmas themed slot games. The first one, as far as we could see, was Dunder Casino, but also ComeOn has a game bundle called Christmas Specials (14 slots).

LeoVegas created something called Santa’s Selection and it holds 10 games, and for some reason they decided to stick Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood in this section too. Perhaps Little Reds coat inspired them. And last but not least, Unibet has a section it simply and suitably has called Christmas, this contains 10 selected slots.

Now lets take a look at a few of the Christmas themed slots

The game developer with the most Christmas slots in the portfolio comes from our boys and girls at the Isle of Man based developer, Microgaming. We have counted 7 holiday themed slots, with the first one being a slot with the catchy name Ho Ho Ho. It was launched in 2004.

The next Christmas themed slot release from Microgaming was Jingle Bells, this was released in 2006. This is a regular fruit machine slot with 3 reels, and 15 pay lines. It is not easily found in online casinos any longer. The next release hit the still young market in 2008 with a bang, and is called Deck of Halls. You can test this slot on Unibet and Dunder. It is a five reel slot with thirty paylines and it has a jackpot.

The next Christmas slot release from Microgaming is called Santa's Wild Ride, this came out in 2010. Santa's Wild Ride slot is far easier to find than the previous ones. You can play it at Unibet, ComeOn and Dunder. The video slot Scrooge, from 2012 is a slot inspired Mr Scrooge from the famous novel and movie, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Scrooge by the way, was also the inspiration of Betsofts slot A Christmas Carol from 2015.

All the Christmas Themed game releases from Microgaming that we have managed to dig up are these:

  • 2004 Ho Ho Ho
  • 2006 Jinge Bells
  • 2008 Deck the Halls
  • 2010 Santa’s Wild Ride
  • 2012 Scrooge
  • 2013 Secret Santa
  • 2015 Happy Holiday

So looking at the years Microgaming have been launching slots, we would expect a Christmas slot release from them on our new slot sites 2017.

Happy Holiday slot

This is the first year that NetEnt releases a Christmas slot which is not just a re-themed slot, for example the Fruit Shop Christmas, and Flowers Christmas. This year for the first time we get a real Christmas slot from the fabulous Swedish developers, and it is really good actually.

Being new, you can play it at almost all online casinos with NetEnt games in their portfolio

This slot has managed to capture the feeling of Christmas spirit perfectly. The music, the images, you can almost smell Christmas. It is a video slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and with 5 paylines. You can read our full review of Secrets of Christmas under our game section.

Another game developer that has taken the fast path to Christmas, is ELK Studios that has re-themed their success Taco Brother for us this year. Play'n GO on the other hand, have given us at least three Christmas themed slots. Merry Xmas that was released in 2014, Christmas Joker that came in 2015 and last but not least the Holiday Season from 2016.

Holiday Season slot

Unfortunately many of these games are not available for mobile phones as they are pre-smartphone era. However, the Christmas slot you will be able to play on your hand held device are the following:

  • Xmas Joker
  • Christmas Carol
  • Secrets of Christmas
  • Holiday Season
