Merry XMas is a video slots game designed and released by Play N Go. The game offers players five reels and fifteen pay lines to play on with a multiplier wild and a pick’em bonus game.
Theme and Symbols
As might be evident from the name of the slots game, Merry XMas has a festive season Christmas theme to it. The graphics are detailed and the theme is enhanced by a traditional Christmas sound track. The reels are decorated with holly, and the background image is one of mistletoe with glowing candles. Symbols include bells, gifts, reindeers, candy, candles, wine, and Santa Clause himself. These are all highly detailed and include additions such as baubles, bows, and golden frames. The game also includes some basic animation features. For example, gifts will sparkle and mulled wine will steam. There are no standard poker-value playing cards.
The Winning Combinations
Each winning combination in the Merry XMas video slots game will pay out a different prize. The Santa Clause symbol is the best paying symbol of the game, and landing five of these will reward players with two thousand five hundred coins. Landing four of these will reward two hundred and fifty coins. The next highest paying symbol is the reindeer, where landing five will reward players with one thousand coins. The Christmas tree decoration pays out five hundred coins when players land five of these. The smaller wins will come from winning combinations made up of the bells, candles, candy, and mulled wine.
The Pick’Em Bonus Game
When players land three gift symbols on the Merry XMas reels, this will trigger the pick’em bonus game. The gift symbols may appear on the first, third, and fifth reels. If players land all three gifts, they will expand to cover all of the reels. In this bonus game, players will then be able to pick one of the gifts on screen. Each will reveal a different coin prize, one of which will be much lower than the other two.
The Multiplier Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the Merry XMas video slots game acts as per normal in that it can substitute any of the other symbols in order to help players complete winning pay lines and make up the best possible winning combinations with the highest payouts. In addition, the wild symbol will also reward players with a multiplier, which can range from a two time multiplier to the five time multiplier. The best payout of the game can be achieved by combining the Santa Clause winning combination with a multiplier wild, with the maximum payout of twelve and a half thousand coins.
How to Play the Game
The Merry XMas slots game is best for players who do not necessarily aim for high stakes and huge wins. It is a simple game with high graphic quality and a smooth game play offering an easy gaming experience. Players can choose their coin denominations, number of pay lines they wish to activate, and the number of coins they wish to play, and then go ahead to spin the reels and hope for winning combinations.
