Santa’s Wild Ride Online Slots
Enjoy the Christmas spirit year-round when you play Santa’s Wild Ride, a high energy online slot machine with five reels and 243 Ways to Win.
243 Ways to Win with Santa
For many years online slots involved completing combinations on enabled paylines. Players could create as many paylines as they wanted, but only those combinations that occurred on activated paylines received a prize. Over the last few years online slot game creators have become increasingly aware that the need to activate paylines was causing players to lose payouts that they would otherwise have been entitled to receive.
The 243 Ways to Win was established as a way to ensure that all slot machine wins would offer payouts, regardless of whether or not a payline had been enabled. With the 243 Ways to Win, whenever three symbols appear on consecutive reels of the online slot game beginning with the reel on the left, the gamer earns a payout for more opportunities to achieve real money wins.
Online Slots Symbols
The slot machine symbols of Santa’s Wild Ride include images of elves, motorcycles and Mrs. Clause as well as the beer, sandwiches and other treats that Santa and his helpers look forward to on their journeys. The Santa’s Wild Ride Logo is the game Wild which substitutes for any other symbol to complete winning pay ways. When the Wild is involved in creating a winning pay way it can double, triple or quadruple the payout. The Wild symbol can also create its own winning combination when multiple Wilds appear on a pay way but these payouts are not multiplied.
The Keys Symbol is the game’s Scatter Symbol. The Keys symbol completes winning scatter combinations when three or more Scatters appear anywhere on the game’s five reels. When three or more keys symbols are scattered across the reels the Free Spins Bonus Game is activated. Players receive 25 Free Spins with a double multiplier.
Online Slot Game Bonus Rounds
The Bonus Free spins offers gamers their choice of Free Spin Wild features including a Stacked Wild, an Expanding Wild or a Trailing Wild. During a Stacked Wild Free Spin the Wild Logo symbol can create a symbol stack. During an Expanding Wild Free Spin the Wild symbol expands to all positions on its reel to substitute for other symbols. When a Trailing Wild is played the Wild symbol becomes a trailing Wild which replicates and moves down one position on the reels after every spin where they remain until they move to last position on the reel.
The appearance of a gift box symbol on the 2nd or 4th reels activates the Free Gift Bonus Feature. The player is awarded a random bonus amount for each displayed gift. Win amounts are multiplied by the total wager amount. The Free Gift bonus feature does not activate during the Free Spins bonus game.
