Top Christmas Casino Games for 2020

Dec 21, 2020 Artyom Ustinov
It’s Christmas time again, and the iGaming industry is getting ready to contribute to the holiday spirit. Like every year, providers around the globe launch Christmas-themed slots, inspired by all kinds of stories & characters related to the popular holiday.

Of course, some of these slots have really great potential, so we decided to make a list of the best ones for the Christmas season of 2020. Let’s take a look at them.

Aloha! Christmas

Aloha! Cluster Pays™ is a popular online video slot by NetEnt. Instead of making a completely new game to honor the winter holidays, the popular provider decided to decorate an existing title. That’s how Aloha! Christmas was born.

It retained all the features that the original game has, but it comes with an increased RTP and a couple of additional perks that make it even more exciting.

Still, the most significant change is on the design level, with Christmas-like design decorating the Hawaiian tropical landscape, giving you a unique perspective of the popular game.

New Year Riches

Play’n GO has a long tradition of releasing holiday-themed slots, and its latest game is called New Years Riches. Although it’s not a Christmas slot per se, it does a great job making a festive atmosphere when played.

New Year Riches is a simple five-by-three slot featuring landmarks from popular cities worldwide during the midnight between December and January.

Designed with an Art Deco style of mind, New Year Riches offers a unique perspective on holidays, in addition to one generous bonus feature.

If the player lands three or more scatter symbols, they’ll start the New Year Free Spins feature that initially awards ten free spins but can be extended subsequently. The bonus round starts with a 2x multiplier but can also increase if you land additional scatters.

Christmas Gift Rush

Habanero also released a slot to pay tribute to Christmas.

It’s actually a simple 3×3 slot with just three paylines, being deliberately created to suit the taste of vintage slot lovers. The grid is set in a traditional Christmas setting with snow-covered houses in the background. Some of the symbols players can find on the reels are candies, presents, teddy bears, Christmas bells, and more.

If the player manages to make a win on the middle line, they will trigger the nudge feature, and the game will continue to nudge until a winning combination shows up. The multiplier will increase with each nudge, and players also have an option to buy features for every spin.

Christmas Carol Megaways

Christmas Carol Megaways is inspired by the traditional story, featuring three ghosts of Christmas pasts as symbols on the reels. The slot by Pragmatic Play uses the popular Megaways mechanic and offers up to 200,704 ways to win.

Each of the Christmas tale characters has the power to make symbols cascade, turning the symbols that make a winning combo into ice and destroying them.

Players who land four or more scatters can choose their free spins/multipliers ratio or select the mystery option and get the game to choose for them.

The game features a non-standard grid structure with eight reels and six rows. It’s a high volatility title with a max multiplier of 20,000x.

Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special

Quickspin also opted to dress an old hit in Christmas clothing. The provider selected the Big Bad Wolf slot, which is regarded as a classic game, being released back in 2013. It’s actually one of the first games launched by Qucikspin.

The creators combined the winter magic and festive feeling with a popular math model, welcoming Big Bad Wolf Christmas Special into the world.

The game features the Swooping Reels feature, which is combined with Pigs Turn Wild. A Pig symbol will turn into a wild on every second Swoop.

Big Bad Wolf also offers the free spins feature that can be triggered with three scatter symbols. Players who are lucky enough to land them will get ten free spins and the Blowing Down the House feature.
