Naughty Santa Review
Christmas is a time of joy - but it can get too repetitive and boring. Who wants to hear the same old mantra of goodwill? Naughty Santa finally shows that it doesn’t hurt to be bad at Christmas. Habanero’s Naughty Santa sees Santa surrounded by beautiful women and he just can’t control himself. It’s literally unlike any other Christmas slot you’ve ever seen.
Naughty Santa plays on 5-reels but has 432 paylines that can give you a win. It also has free spin rounds and a multitude of features to make sure that you have a merry Christmas indeed.
As you’d expect, the background is red and full of cheer. Instead of toys and cliché Christmas items, there is alcohol and mistletoe to set the stage for Santa’s affairs. The reels contain 4 of Santa’s girlfriends. Activating the colossal symbols will expand the symbols to give a more seductive pose - all ready for Santa. Well, they try to act seductive but it ends up coming across as 'cringe', but maybe that’s what Santa wants.
The biggest positive is that the Christmas music isn’t overly cheerful and annoying. Instead, it’s in the background and never outstayed its welcome.
Everything needed is at the bottom of the screen. You can look through play menus or paytables in case you are unsure and set your bet limit at the bottom. The spin button is bang in the middle with the autospin button just to the right of it. You can set between 10 and 500 autospins with the option to cancel at any time.
The gameplay itself is simple and easy to follow. All you need to know is how much to bet and how to spin. It’s all self-explanatory without any complicated gameplay.
Naughty Santa’s RTP is at a mighty 96.78% - which is way above the standard. This added with Habanero’s Jackpot Race - makes it a game with some mighty win potential. However, it's worth noting that the Jackpot Race is only available at certain slot sites - so check beforehand. It’s a progressive jackpot that is set for a certain time and players can win it randomly during this time. To have a chance of winning the jackpot, you must bet at least 0.20 to be considered. Bets below this will not be accepted and you’ll lose the chance to take the jackpot.
Base game-wise, you can win up to 20x your stake by rolling 5 scatters. With the multiplier going up to 10x, you could win a maximum of 200x your stake. You’d expect it to be a little bit more with the higher volatility - which does disappoint a little bit. Thankfully, there are 432 ways to win, so it almost evens back out.
Christmas slots are usually dull and fun of too much happiness - thankfully Naughty Santa tries to do something else. It doesn’t succeed as much as it could, but it’s a worthy try. For the high RTP and features, Naughty Santa is definitely on the nice list this year and could surprise you. The base game win is a little disappointing, but the option of a jackpot almost cancels this out completely. For a Christmas themed slot without the cheese - try Naughty Santa.
