Spinions Christmas Party Review
'Twas back in 2016 when the Spinions were unleashed on the iGaming world. Quickspin developed its own little mascots and the slot was a modest success.
Now the whole Spinions gang are back for a whole new Christmas adventure in Spinions Christmas Party. Following the same 5-reel, 25 payline format from the original, Spinions Christmas Party brings back old favourites whilst adding a festive edge to it.
You'll find the slot set in the middle of Santa's workshop in the North Pole - but the Spinions have taken over. The middle of the reels acts as a screen for the multiplier Spinions that surround.
These Spinions are heavily inspired by the Minions from Despicable Me but without the annoying voices. Each of the Spinions in the crowd bob idly whilst each of them has some kind of unique look.
When you land a win as well, it becomes a full-on spectacle with each of the Spinions cheering. Amazingly, there's a soft Christmas score in the background with bells and nothing too obnoxious.
During free spins, you are taken into Santa's grotto with even more Spinions around. This is where to music gets more intense and builds up the Christmas atmosphere.
Overall, the gameplay for this slot is just like the original and is perfect for any sort of online slot player. There are only 5-reels with 25 paylines and two main features in this slot - so it's easy to follow.
Like most Quickspin slots, you'll find everything you need on the right side of the screen with the spin button and other menus you may need.
The win potential for this slot is quite hit and miss. On one hand, the RTP is respectable at 96.05% and the high volatility gameplay will work well for players who prefer larger payouts at less frequent rates.
However, the maximum win for this slot is 1,876x your stake which is quite low for an online slot. Of course, wins of 1,876x your stake is satisfying, but some players may be put off by this amount cap.
Quickspin has delivered a charming little slot with the Spinions Christmas Party, and we wouldn't be surprised if this became a regular franchise for the studio. The characters aren't too annoying and some people may actually find them cute.
Thankfully, the gameplay is rewarding and gripping with the respin mechanic mixed with free spins. The only thing that lets this slot down is the low maximum win.
Despite that, Spinions Christmas Party is a fun little Christmas slot that we can definitely see sticking around.
