Online Christmas Slots Fun with Santa Paws

Renowned casino game developer Microgaming has been going since 1994, and is known for detailed game design and gorgeous graphics. They’re all about pushing the envelope and injecting some humour into their slots games, including the festive season versions. Nobody does it better, and the Santa Paws online Christmas slots release is perfect proof of that!

Santa as a Polar Bear

What if the patron saint of Christmas, and everyone who helped him, were animals rather than people? That’s the basic premise of Santa Paws, and in this 5-reel, 3-row Christmas slot Canada gets to meet the polar bear Santa Paws, as well as an owl holding a present, and a rabbit, a wolf and a seal in appropriate seasonal attire.

The lower-value symbols are the usual playing cards, decorated with a thick layer of snow to continue the theme. Christmas jingles tinkle in the background as the reels spin, and they are set against a very snowy scene. The graphics and functionality are perfect on all devices, so you can enjoy these online Christmas slots on any tablet, smartphone or desktop you wish.

Spinning with Santa Paws

With these exciting Christmas slots Canada players can choose how many paylines they want to activate for each round, from 1 to 20. The betting range for each line is CA$0.01 to CA10.00, meaning you can stake anywhere from CA$0.01 to CA$200.00 per spin.

The top jackpot in the base game is 4000x your wager, and the theoretical Return to Player percentage is an impressive 96.52%. If you’re very busy, you can activate the AutoPlay function and keep the reels turning independently. You won’t have as much fun as if you’re spinning the online Christmas slots reels yourself, but you also won’t miss out on any winning opportunities.

The basic gaming in Santa Paws is exciting and rewarding enough but, as always, Microgaming has added some special features to give a bigger boost to your wins. The 2 Wild Symbols are Rudolf the whale – not the reindeer, although he is wearing a pair of novelty antlers – and, naturally, a polar bear. They can replace all icons except the Scatter, to make up many more paying combinations, and since there are 2 Wilds instead of the usual 1, you stand to win even more.

The Scatter Symbol is represented by a happy gift-bearing penguin that will bestow 12 free spins whenever 3, 4 or 5 land in any reel positions at the same time. The free spins can be retriggered from within the bonus round, if more penguins land.

Gamble Feature Fun

On every successful spin, you can opt to activate the Gamble Feature where you try to double or quadruple your win by predicting the colour or suit of a randomly generated playing card. If you’re wrong, you lose everything, which definitely adds more gambling thrills to the online Christmas slots. Indulge in a few rounds of Santa Paws at your favourite casino today, and spin on into the spirit of the season!
