Xmas Drop Features

While this 5x5 slot benefits greatly from a visit by Santa and his Wild gifts, there are still 19 other ways to win a prize. This is down to the regular Royal symbols, of which there are five, and five Christmassy icons. The highest prize comes courtesy of the sleigh bells and these award 20x for a group of five.

As you may have gathered, there is more than one wild symbol in this game and they are the Wild Gift and Wild Santa.

Wild Santas can land at any time and if they are capable of connecting a win below them, Santa's mouth will open and stretch to make the rest of the reel Wild. If this happens to pass through a Wild Gift, a multiplier of up to 200x is added to any wins that connect through the gift.

The bonus action comes courtesy of Free Spins Scatter symbols and three of these will trigger the first game. This goes by the name of Night Before Xmas and you get a better chance of landing Wild symbols throughout your spins. 

Four Scatter symbols will release the Santa Claus is Coming to Town game and every time Santa lands on a reel, the reel is activated and guarantees that a Santa Wild will drop onto that reel for the rest of the remaining spins.

If they can form part of a win below them, these symbols stretch to cover the reels to help connect winning combos wherever possible.

If Santa’s Wild mouth stretches wide enough to cover a Wild Gift below, then Multipliers up to 200x will be added to any win that the symbol is part of.

Xmas Drop Review

If Xmas Drop struggles to get you in the holiday spirit, then this could be because you are living at the top of a mountain waiting patiently to head down to Whoville and steal everybody's presents. It's a fun and potentially potent little game that could see your stocking filled in time for the big day.


The snow is unrelenting and everything in sight has a lovely wintery glaze. Santa looks jolly even though he's stood out in the cold and that belly seems to have grown since last year. When he lands on the reels as a Wild symbol, his mouth stretches open to gobble up any potential Wild Gifts and this is one of the highlights of the show for me. The music is suitably festive and should help to keep your ears just as happy as your eyes during your slot session.


The main modifying action comes courtesy of the Wilds and then potential Multipliers as well. It can occur at any time and only becomes more frequent during the bonus games. This makes everything feel seamless and enjoyable, so hats off to Hacksaw Gaming for keeping me entertained once again.

Win Potential

If you have managed to keep yourself off the naughty list, you could walk away with a max 12,500x win and it's good to know that the volatility is medium. This means that you should see some fairly regular winning action to keep your balance bolstered throughout. The bigger wins will come courtesy of the Multipliers and large stretches of Wild symbols. The RTP is fine at 96.22%.

My Verdict

I tried to resist getting into the spirit of Christmas too early, but there is just too much festive fun to be had with all of the Christmas-themed slots around at the moment. Thanks to Xmas Drop, I'm going into full-on Christmas mode now and this one is going to be my marker for what other developers should be aiming for.
