Jingle Balls Features

The game begins with four reels in play and each row is a different height. Don't pay too much attention to the number of symbols as this can continue changing throughout the game thanks to xSplit Wilds. As this modifier arrives, it changes the number of winways by splitting itself and everything to the left and right in half and this is how the maximum 614,656 paylines can be achieved.

Along those paylines, you're looking out for a bunch of regular symbols and a couple of special ones. The mundane-looking presents max out at 3x for a group of six circular gifts while a shabby-looking Santa gets you 6x for a group of six.

Wild symbols are super important in Jingle Balls as not only do they substitute for all other regular paying symbols but can be the subject of some fun modifiers. xNudge Wild will produce an entire stack of Wild symbols and xSplit Wilds can cut these in half along with other symbols on the same row, as mentioned before.

Scatter symbols are the shining star of the show, quite literally, and landing one of these will unlock the 5th reel. Another one will unlock the sixth reel and if you are in a jurisdiction that allows it, you don't even need to wait for them to land randomly. The Wish Upon a Star option will increase your base bet by 50% and will guarantee a Scatter symbol on the second real.

Bonus Games

Three or more Scatter symbols unlock the Free Spins games and there are three different stages to this, depending on how many Scatter symbols you land. It's also possible to buy straight into any one of the bonuses if you live outside the UK and are in an area that permits it.

The regular Free Spins Bonus begins as a result of three Scatter symbols and you will see a setup spin performed to determine how many spins you get, what the multiplier is for each of the top character symbols and which character symbol will be activated as your chosen symbol for the Bonus.

Four Scatter symbols produce a Bonus game that is much the same except that all characters will be active throughout the Bonus. Finally, the third Spirit Spins bonus comes thanks to five Scatter symbols and the advantage here is that all win multipliers are doubled.

Jingle Balls - xWays, xNudge & xSplit Wilds

xWays, xNudge & xSplit Wilds

These modifiers will multiply the number of win ways for one symbol type, nudge a stack of Wilds into view and split a Wild and all other symbols on either side in two, respectively.

Jingle Balls - Scatter symbols

Scatter symbols

Landing 3+ Scatters triggers the bonus game but they can also help during the Base game too. One unlocks the 5th reel and 2 unlock the 6th reel. They can also be modified by the xSplit Wilds to create a stack of Wilds.

Jingle Balls - Spirit Spins

Spirit Spins

Three Scatters award the Bonus game where a setup spin will decide the number of spins, the multiplier for each character and activate one character. Four Scatters means all characters are activated and Five Scatters get you double the win multiplier.

Jingle Balls Review

You know before you even load the game up that there are going to be several tricks in store and you'll need to focus to get the most out of Jingle Balls. The modifiers have been done before in various other Nolimit City productions but this one comes with a little bit more emphasis on the Wilds.

Design

You couldn't ask for a more depressing Christmas setup with the characters and presents all having a slightly grey sheen. The decorations outlining the reels are bright enough but they only really exist to give a pop of colour to the game. The overall feeling is slightly sad and this is matched by the music that sounds like the batteries are running out on an old Walkman. This developer isn't known for its bright and cheery outlook, so you have to share in their misery if you're going to enjoy this one!

Gameplay

All of the various ‘x’ modifiers make the Base game fun and at times a little manic as those symbols start splitting and Wilds begin to stack across the reels. The locked reels to the right of the set are enticing and if you're in an area that allows it, you may be tempted to use the Wish Upon a Star to get a guaranteed Scatter symbol on reel number 2. There isn't much difference between the Bonus games except that the wins should get progressively better with each additional Scatter.

Win Potential

This isn't the highest-paying Nolimit City game that I've seen and it's a fairly modest 12,250x payout available this Christmas. The action should come thick and fast despite the high volatility and the free spins are said to trigger once every 166 spins. The RTP is 96.10%.

My Verdict

If you are feeling a little ‘bah humbug!’ this Christmas and don’t fancy sticking on a party hat and eating some dried-out turkey, then Jingle Balls could be the perfect substitute. It's got all of the regular modifiers that we know and love from this developer and it holds your attention with the upbeat action. Don't be a Scrooge; just give it a go!
