Fat Santa Review
After the success of Fat Rabbit, Push Gaming decided to create a whole Fat Series dedicated to fat wins and cartoony graphics. Players can expect easy gameplay mixed with satisfying wins. The developers thought that the world needed a Christmas version of this slot that’s all about Santa.
Just like Fat Rabbit, Fat Santa plays on 5-reels with 50 paylines. The entire aesthetic has been changed to fit a more festive feeling to get players in the holiday spirit. Does it add anything to the series or is it just another cloned slot?
There’s no denying that the design is delightful and adorable. You’ll find yourself in the North Pole surrounded by cosy cabins and snow. To make it even better - snow actually falls from the screen to make it feel even more atmospheric.
The slots themselves have similarly designed characters from Fat Rabbit, but shifted to Christmas. You’ll find fat Santa, Elves, Rudolph and Snowmen to fully round out the slot. They have an Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley hybrid mixed in the design which makes it feel softer on the eyes. The club suits in the baubles just adds a little more attention to detail that makes you appreciate the slot a little extra.
Arguably, the most surprising thing about the design has to be the music. It’s Christmas inspired but feels a little funkier. There are soft pianos but mixed with percussion and jazzy beats. It’s not necessarily bad, just unexpected. The reels themselves add a little jingle bell which is welcomed in a Christmas slot.
Honestly, despite having the same layout and features, the design is relatively different. It feels like it’s from the same series but not just a clone with colours changed.
Just like Fat Rabbit, this slot plays on 5-reels with 50 paylines. It’s traditional with spins and wins so there’s nothing to worry about. The gameplay is the furthest thing from complicated and can appeal to all different types of slot players.
Spin, autospin and the bet level can be found underneath the reels. Menus such as sound and pay tables can be found to the left. You can mute specific sounds or just all of it depending on your preference. Autospins can be set at 100 with bets going up to 25.00.
Now, the win potential is almost identical to Fat Rabbit. The RTP remains at a solid 96.45% with the win potential being 10,222x your stake which can be won during the free spins round.
The biggest difference has to be the departure from high volatility in a favour of a medium to high volatility level. It’s clear that it’s trying to appeal to even more players at this volatility level. If this sounds like something you’d want, then Fat Santa is the one for you.
It may come as a shock to find that Fat Santa doesn’t feel like a clone of Fat Rabbit, rather just another title in the series. Sure, the gameplay and features remain almost identical, but the aesthetic and design is vastly different. It keeps consistent within the tone of the series but doesn’t blatantly copy the other game.
The RTP is the same, but the payout is slightly less. This is aimed at more casual players who like a mixture of high and medium volatility level. If you want to play a game full of merriment and Christmas spirit, then Fat Santa is one to try. For those of you wanting a more risqué holiday season, try out Naughty Santa as well.
