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.
