Santa's Big Bash Megaways Review
Of course, Christmas is known as a time for celebration and what a better way to celebrate than with the big man himself. Join Santa's festivities and enter the party of the year!
Developed by Iron Dog Studio, Santa's Big Bash Megaways is a Christmas slot that plays on 6-reels with 117,649 ways to win with the Megaways mechanic.
During the party, you can gain bonuses from Rudie the Reindeer or build up the Christmas tree for free spins. If you are good, you may even find a nice present of up to 25,000x your stake of Santa.
When the slot opens up, it's clear that you've just joined the party of the year! There's a roaring fire to the left of the screen with various bottles of wine scattered around the floor. To the right of the reels, there's a Christmas tree with baubles and other Christmas decorations.
As for the reels themselves, you'll find a variety of guests at the party such as Scrooge, Jack Frost, Santa, Gingerbread Man and one of Santa's elves. They definitely look like they are ready for a party and it adds to the excitement.
The music is what you'd expect with bells and Christmas inspired music that plays throughout. It doesn't fit with the party but it definitely fits with the theme. It gets a little bit more intense throughout free spins, but nothing too drastic.
Santa's Big Bash Megaways is exactly what you'd want in a Megaways slot as it's not too complicated but still has a huge amount of excitement. The main thing is to land wins and create tumbles which can lead to modifiers or free spins!
At the bottom of the screen, you'll find the spin button and autospin to the right. Moving to the left side, you'll find the bet level and other additional information such as the paytable.
It's no secret that most Christmas slots are gimmicky, but thankfully that's not the case with this one. The RTP is a decent 96.04%, whilst the maximum win is an alluring 25,000x your stake which can be achieved through the free spins.
On top of that, this slot has a high volatility level meaning that you'll gain bigger wins - but just make sure you have the bankroll to sustain your gameplay as the wins aren't frequent.
We were genuinely surprised by how entertaining this slot was and how much fun we had. There's a stereotype that Christmas slots are cheap and tacky, but this is the complete opposite and it's clear that Iron Dog Studio put in loads of effort to create something special for Christmas that would last for years.
The free spins are unusual but satisfying to see the baubles build up on the tree and the modifiers from Rudie are welcomed. If you want a truly wonderful Christmas slot, then look no further than Santa's Big Bash Megaways.
