The Merry Season Has Arrived
Santa’s Kiss is obviously a Christmas-themed slot game, which in itself is not too original. The background shows a very simple snowy landscape at night, with snowflakes lazily drifting in the wind as you spin the reels. What is interesting here is the contrast between this simplistic background and the very modern, semi-transparent reels and command bar in the foreground, framed with Christmas decorations.
Playing Santa’s Kiss is a very smooth experience, with a cheery Christmas tune playing right from the beginning. You might feel the need to mute the game after a while, but overall we enjoyed playing Santa’s Kiss from an aesthetic point of view. As for the gameplay, we’ll take a look at it in our next section.
Winter Is upon Us
Santa’s Kiss contains 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines, on which you can bet from 0.30 to 30 credits per turn. Whether you want to play it safe or take a risk, use the arrow buttons to choose the wager that fits your needs or go all-in with the max bet shortcut. Santa’s Kiss also features an autoplay game mode to put the game on autopilot, but interestingly no double-up game is available.
The game’s volatility is slightly below average, which means that you are statistically a little more likely to score small wins frequently on the reels than hit a big prize all of a sudden. The paytable is made up of iconic Christmas symbols such as presents, decorations, gingerbread men, Santa and Mrs Santa and so on, with a maximum prize of x500 available for the lucky gamblers.
Nothing Beats Big Cash Prizes
The most common special symbol of Santa’s Kiss is a Christmas tree, which plays the role of the wild card. It will come in handy to create extra winning combinations, or to form wild combinations worth a jackpot of x5000. The snowmen, on the other hand, are scatters capable of triggering an impressive x2000 prize maximum. 3 or more scatters on the reels also initiate a bonus round of 10 free spins with doubled payouts right from the beginning.
The most surprising feature of Santa’s Kiss is a cute kissing bonus. When Santa and his lovely wife land side by side, they kiss and unlock a surprise reward. There is no telling how much you can win, but the gesture is just lovely.
A Classic Theme, with a Twist
Santa’s Kiss manages to stand out from the other Christmas-themed slots on the market. The graphics are an interesting blend of low-key details and modern animations. Overall, Santa’s Kiss is fun to play and features some really impressive cash prizes as well.
If you like frozen landscapes but prefer a high-volatility challenge, then you have to try out Ice 7 Bar from Join Games. The gameplay is very similar to that of Santa’s Kiss, and you also get to enjoy a x2 multiplier with your free spins.
