Sugar Rush Xmas Review
As Christmas comes around, the influx of festive slots intensifies and you can bet your bottom dollar that at least 50% of them will be reboots of an old game with a little bit of tinsel and the odd snowflake. It's nice when a developer goes above and beyond and creates a completely new Christmas-themed game, but that isn't the case this time.
The symbols and everything else are pretty much carbon copies of the original game, except the word sugar now wears a Santa hat and there's a lot more snow to enjoy. Fairly typically, the theme tune now includes the mandatory sleigh bells that are working hard to put us in the festive spirit.
The Base game does include the potential to grab some decent wins thanks to the multipliers but having them reset between non-winning spins can make this journey feel a little arduous. Thankfully, this restriction is removed during the Bonus game and this helps to create bigger wins and a far more pleasant experience at the same time.
As with the original sugary offering, 5,000x is the top win available and a few trips to the Free Spins Bonus will be necessary to achieve this. Some players outside the UK will have access to buy directly into the bonus. The RTP is 96.50% at its maximum and the volatility is high.
The original Sugar Rush game didn't exactly tickle me pink but it did have a certain appeal for anyone who enjoys grid slots and clever multipliers. It's an odd theme that I've never fully understood but some players love it! Will Sugar Rush Xmas offer you anything that it couldn't before? No, but it's Christmas so why not give it a go?
