Christmas Catch Features

Christmas Catch is a Megaways slot, so the action effectively takes place on a gaming grid that can be 6 reels by 2 to 7 rows, depending on the size of the symbols that fall. Winning combinations come in the form of landing matching pay symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost reel—no rigid paylines. Given that you’ll potentially be playing with a 6x7 game area, you’ve got up to 117,649 ways to win. 

When you hit a winning combination, those symbols disappear and new symbols drop down from above to fill in the vacated space, thereby giving you chances to hit further winning combos—a ‘Reaction’. 

Not only that, but whenever winning symbols are removed, a Sleigh will park above reels 2 to 5 and at least one Gift Bonus Prize will appear, although the gift will only be awarded if a Seigh Symbol is parked above the same reel.

If you’re lucky enough to have a Golden Sleigh above the reel, your Gift Bonus Prize will be multiplied by 10x! Bear in mind that any Sleighs already above reel 2 disappear with every Reaction, and the other sleighs then move one position to the left. You didn’t expect them to stay indefinitely, did you?

Your standard low-pay symbols are 9 to Ace. Landing a 6-of-a-kind can win you between 0.25x and 0.5x the stake. Your high pays are the different coloured Christmas stockings, and as always, size matters. The bigger the stocking, the bigger your win. For example, 6-of-a-kind can pocket you between 0.6x and 50x your bet! Wilds fall on reels 2 to 5 only and substitute for all pay symbols.

Free Spins & Win Exchange

If 3 Golden Christmas Pudding Scatter symbols land, you immediately win 10 free spins. 3 or more subsequent Scatters will win you 4 additional free spins, plus an extra 2 free spins for every Scatter that lands after that. You start off the Free Spins round with a Sleigh Multiplier of 1x, the second Sleigh that lands will have a multiplier of 2x, and so on… Unlike in the base game, Gift Bonuses are multiplied by all visible Sleigh Multipliers. 

If you win between 25x and 100x your stake, you’ll get the opportunity to exchange the win for a chance to enter the Free Spins Bonus Round by spinning the red and green Win Exchange wheel. If you choose to spin and land on green, you proceed to said Bonus Round. Land on red, however, and you lose your win and return to the base game. That being said, if you don’t fancy chancing your arm, you can just click ‘Collect’ and return to the base game with your win intact. 

However, if you win 100x the stake or more, you are simply given a choice between keeping your win or trading it in for 10 Free Spins. In this way, players outside the UK should be able to buy instant access to the Bonus Round for 100x the stake.

Christmas Catch - Sleigh Multipliers and Gift Boxes

Sleigh Multipliers and Gift Boxes

After each Winning Combination and subsequent Reaction, a Sleigh will park above a random reel and you’ll be awarded Gift Boxes; however, you’ll only be able to unwrap and keep them if there’s a Sleigh above the corresponding reel. These sleighs can also carry multipliers!

Christmas Catch - Win Exchange

Win Exchange

Win between 25x and 100x the bet and you’ll be able to gamble those winnings for a chance to enter the Free Spins round. Just spin the wheel and make sure you land on green. Win 100x the bet or more and you can trade that win to go directly to the bonus round.

Christmas Catch - Free Spins

Free Spins

3 Golden Christmas Puddings will catapult you to the Bonus Free Spins round. Start off with 10 free spins. Landing further Scatters will yield further free spins. Also, the first Sleigh that lands carries a 1x multiplier, and every subsequent Sleigh will carry a +1 multiplier.

Christmas Catch Review

Christmas Catch from Big Time Gaming is yet another Christmas-themed slot—can you believe it? Will it have you bah-humbuging, or jingling all the way to the bank? With a great range of features and a superb top win, one would assume the latter.

Design

‘Jingle Bells’ can be heard in the background, but only while the reels are spinning, otherwise the game’s pretty much silent, apart from the odd bell. Personally, this annoys me a little! Visually, the game is pretty standard with snow falling and various Xmas-themed trinkets doing the rounds.

Game Play

As is usual for Big Time Gaming, the gameplay is decent, even in the Base game. Christmas Catch has Reactions, Gift Bonus Prizes, Sleigh Multipliers, a Win Exchange option and more. There’s a good chance the game will get you into the festive mood.  

Win Potential

I’d say an RTP of 96.53% is really good for a high-volatility slot with a max win of 31,244x. Thanks to the wide range of features, it always feels like you’re triggering a win or at least activating something to keep you amused!  

My Verdict

Christmas Catch might be a little predictable in terms of presentation. Nonetheless, the gameplay goes a long way toward compensating for that with a top range of features that could produce a sizable payout on the right day.

He still loves the basic format but also has a soft spot for games with big bonus rounds that progress as you play. Immortal Romance is one of his favourite slots of all time.
