As the festive season kicks into gear, a selection of those weekly slot launches that we are all familiar with are showcasing a distinct theme. As the online casino market becomes flooded with Christmas content once more, we take a look at a number of those new entrants.

Stunning Snow Remastered – BF Games

Development studio BF Games is aiming to bring a touch of Christmas sparkle with Stunning Snow Remastered, a 5-reel, 3-row slot aims to offer a twist on the fruit-themed games, with lucky sevens and Christmas tree star symbols landing on the reels to boost winning potential.

Set against a snow dusted village adorned with Christmas gifts, Stunning Snow Remastered offers players the opportunity to activate the gamble function and bet all on one card for even bigger holiday pay-outs.

The title is the fourth game in BF Games’ Remastered series, joining Royal Crown, Stunning Hot and Stunning Hot 20 Deluxe.

“It’s great to add some seasonal spirit to our Remastered series with the release of Stunning Snow Remastered and we hope the remake brings ample joy to players during the holiday period.

“As a classic game that has been enjoyed by players year after year, we have high expectations for the performance of the remastered edition, offering the same popular gameplay but with enhanced graphics and sounds that sparkle.” – Piotr Szpoton, CEO at BF Games.

Christmas Tree – Yggdrasil and True Lab

Yggdrasil and YG masters studio partner True Lab have teamed-up to deliver Christmas Tree, which sees reels take the shape of the game’s title.

If players land five or more identical symbols in a diagonal cluster on the reels they form a winning combination. The winning clusters are removed as new symbols cascade down to fill the empty spaces.

After every three or more cascades, the player will receive a Christmas Present. Once unwrapped, it will contain either win multipliers up to x30, five free spins or from five to 1,000 bets.

A friendly snowman surveys the wintry scene hurling snowballs to turn symbols wild, and a blizzard gives players an even greater chance of winning.

“The capabilities of the superb state-of-the-art GATI technology is shown off to great effect with Christmas Tree. It’s been an exciting year for us and we are thrilled to release our second game as a YG Masters partner and to show off how well our relationship is working.

“In Christmas Tree, our developers have come up with such an innovative and immersive game that’s so enjoyable to play. It’s certainly going to be a happy Christmas for slot fans.” – Vasily Polynov, chief business development officer at True Lab.

Christmas Fortune – RubyPlay

Christmas Fortune is a five-reel slot that is brimming with festive symbols, from Santa himself to gifts, toys, ornaments and the beloved Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

Landing six Christmas ornaments triggers the jackpot mania, and if Santa thinks you are on the nice list, he may fill all the reels with ornaments, and the grand jackpot might just be yours.

Collecting ornaments as you play fills the meter and when it’s full, you’ll be blessed with super ornaments that contain bigger prizes,

“We couldn’t wait for one of our favourite holidays to bring you this game, and so we have created Christmas Fortune.

“Obviously I’m biased but I think it is one of the most Christmassy games on the market, and hopefully it helps to get people in the festive spirit.” – Ittai Zur, chief operating officer of RubyPlay.

Aloha! Christmas – NetEnt

NetEnt has given a festive twist to Aloha! Cluster Pays, with the 6-reel, 6-row Aloha! Christmas featuring cluster pays and sticky re-spins mechanics.

Boasting a 96 per cent RTP, the game also comes complete with new mystery and multiplier wild symbols.

Increased winning potential is also offered by the bonus rounds, tiki bar free spins and tiki bar max free spins, which are designed to complement the original gameplay.

“Aloha! Cluster Pays ranks highly in our hall of fame, providing the perfect setting to create a Christmas title that brings a touch of sunshine as well as seasonal cheer to brighten up the cold winter days and nights. 

Combining the well-loved features of the original with some twinkling twists and increased payout potential, we’re expecting Aloha! Christmas™ to be a real treat for players in the lead up to the holiday.” – Carl Ejlertsson, games director at NetEnt.
