Christmas Krampus Wonder 500

by Light & Wonder

Krampus presumably put the fear of God in any naughty child throughout the 12th century but seems to have taken on a far more philanthropic role in the eyes of Light & Wonder. Christmas Krampus Wonder 500 uses this demonic claw to bring you all ill-gotten gains by robbing Christmas present values, which could total 500x and is standard for games in this series. As well as a little yuletide theft, you can also enjoy, free spins and Wild symbols that walk about.

Christmas Krampus Wonder 500 Features

I'm not quite sure what I was expecting when I saw Krampus appear on my list of slots to review. It's not a typically happy Christmas story and doesn't usually go hand in hand with feelings of joy. What we have is something similar to the Grinch that seems to have had a change of heart and instead of trashing Christmas just for the hell of it, things have been put right and karma has been restored. Christmas present values are stolen but they head straight back to the player to help build up their Christmas coffers.

But first, here is a quick rundown of the standard winning action.

There are 10 pay lines on which you can land a prize and the regular payouts come courtesy of 5 royal symbols and 6 higher-paying symbols. Top of the Christmas tree is the game's Logo symbol with a 50x payout for five of a kind. Among those symbols are some Christmas presents and these serve 2 purposes. As a standard icon, 20x is the max payout for a group of 5. However, making your way to the Free Spins Bonus, you'll see the additional prize values stamped on these presents come into play.

You need a minimum of 3 Bonus Scatter symbols to take you to the Bonus game, and this will earn you 6 free spins. 4 Scatter Symbols reward 8 free spins and 5 Scatter symbols get you 10 free spins. Your free games begin and you will now meet Krampus.

Any Christmas present in play will have its additional value collected by all Krampus symbols that appear at the same time. The reels will respin and Krampus moves one step to the left. It can now collect the values of any additional Christmas presents. This continues until the Krampus symbol disappears from view.  The symbol also acts as a Wild.

Krampus Symbols

The Krampus acts as a Wild but only appears during the Free Spins Bonus. All Present symbol values are collected by the Krampus when touching horizontally, diagonally and vertically. Krampus stays on the reels and walks 1 place to the left with each free spin.

During the base game, these have a standard value of up to 20x for 5 of a kind. But during the Free Spins Bonus, each one can be worth up to 25x.

Christmas Krampus Wonder 500 Review

Not every Christmas story can be based around feelings of joy, but not many are as dark as Krampus! German for ‘claw’, this ancient folklore figure would visit naughty children along with Santa, but while Santa filled the good children’s boots with gifts, Krampus dished out his own special form of punishment to the naughty ones! Thankfully, this half-goat figure seems to have had a change of heart and he’s taken a leaf out of Santa's book this year.


Light & Wonder could have gone really dark with this production but in general, it has been left fairly light-hearted and the only mention of Krampus is during the Free Spins game when you start collecting Christmas presents. The music is a little monotonous and the overall design isn't anything to shout about. That said, it does its job just fine.


There are regular Wild symbols to enjoy during the Base game and these are replaced by the special Krampus Wild symbols throughout the Free Spins Bonus. This has helped to keep the main part of the production feeling quite lively but watching those Christmas present values appear with no chance of collecting them does make the Base game quite frustrating!

Win Potential

It will come as no surprise that the max win is only 500x. That is standard with games like this and the idea is that you will see more action, more often. The RTP is a little low at 94.07%, compared to the original Christmas Krampus game, but this will be because you’re getting more access to the good stuff! The volatility is around the medium mark.

My Verdict

This game won't just appeal to practising pagans but it will also certainly strike a chord with those who have an alternative view on Christmas proceedings. You can't expect much in terms of huge payouts but you will see plenty going on throughout your spins as a result. It's a fairly specialist type of slot with a very specific theme—the choice is yours!
