Book of Yuletide Features

Book of Yuletide is a fairly standard 5x3 paylines slot. It has an RTP of 96.27% and a max win of  32,760x. The 10 paylines start from the leftmost reel; however, unlike many other slots, you only need to land 2 high-pay symbols to win some dosh. Those high-pays are, in ascending order of value, creepy Santa, purple-clad elf and green or blue-clad elf. Don’t ask me why, but all three of the elves are supporting pouts that wouldn’t look out of place on an adult movie set. 

The low pays are the usual 10 to Ace, with five-of-a-kind winning you up to 15x your stake. Landing 5 of the high-pay symbols can win you anywhere up to 200x the bet. On top of that, you’ve also got the Snowman Book symbols that function as Wilds. These Wild symbols don’t only substitute for the other pay symbols, they also pay out themselves, and they serve as the game’s Scatter symbols. 

Landing a winning combination of just 2 Scatters will pocket you 5x your stake. Land 3 and you’ll get 50x the bet plus access to the Free Spins round. Land 5 and you’ll gain access to Free Spins and win 2,500x the bet straightaway. If your 3 Wilds/Scatters don’t land on the paylines, you’ll still be given access to Free Spins. You just won’t pocket any money, for the Christmas time being.

Free Spins and Pick & Click 

The Bonus round is about more than just free spins. It’s also about the true meaning of Christms: presents! Upon entering the round you’ll be given the chance to choose from 20 different presents to unwrap and they include +10 free spins, +4 expanding symbols and +5x multipliers. 

Enter the round via 3 Wilds/Scatters, and you can pick 3 gifts. 4 Wilds/Scatters allows you to pick 6, and 5 means you can choose 12! If that wasn’t all, you also start off the round with 4 free spins, a 1x multiplier and 1 symbol is allocated the role of Expanding symbol. If one lands, it’ll expand to cover the entire reel.

If 3 more Wilds/Scatters land, anywhere on the grid, you get 2 more free spins. Depending on the amount of Wilds/Scatters you land, you also get more opportunities to select gifts. 1,2 or 4 picks are awarded for 3,4 or 5 Wilds/Scatters respectively. Book of Yuletide truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Players outside the UK should be able to buy instant access to the Bonus rounds. For 150x the bet players enter the Bonus via 3 Wilds/Scatters. 500x the stake gives you access via 4. If you shell out 1600x, you’ll gain access to the game via 5. 

Book of Yuletide - Expanding Symbols

Book of Yuletide - Wilds


Land 5 Wilds to win 2,500x the stake. On top of that, during the Free Spins round, which the Wilds grant you access to, landing 3 more Wilds awards 2 more free spins, plus you get another chance to unwrap some presents.

Book of Yuletide Review

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, when we’re bombarded with an avalanche of Christmas-themed slots. Fans of Quickspin might remember the Cash Truck Xmas Delivery slot from this time last year. Could this prove to be something even more special?


The music is very much in keeping with the overall holiday theme. In the base game, you get Tchaikovsky’s ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’, whereas in the bonus game, you’ll hear a swing version of ‘Jingle Bells’. The visuals are fairly basic, although the dirty looks on all the characters’ faces brought a smile to my face—a nice contrast to the usual Christmas schmaltz.

Game Play

Apart from the Wilds serving 3 different functions—Wild, Scatter, pay symbol—the base game is nothing impressive. That said, I’m a big fan of the features on offer in the Bonus game. The chance to unwrap loads of presents before the round even starts is a nice Christmasy touch.

Win Potential

The size of my wins in the base game were pretty underwhelming, but that was very much compensated for in the Free Spins round. The 32,760x max win is pretty decent, plus at any point during play, you can win 2,500x the bet if 5 Wilds fall. Watch out for high volatility and 96.27% RTP.

My Verdict

Apart from the arguably plain visuals, Book of Yuletide has pretty much everything you could want from a Christmas slot—even if it is a bit creepy. It’s fun to play and there’s lots of potential to win big. Merry Christmas!
