A Christmas Slot with a Difference
Building on the novel theme, Microgaming have adorned the game with impressive graphics, cheerful Christmas background music and loads of big winning opportunities. Santa Paws features 5 spinning reels with 20 paylines and a heathy slot jackpot of 4000 coins. The four highest paying symbols in the game include Santa delivering gifts, a seal helper, a snowy owl and a bunny decorating a Christmas tree. The game also features a good deal of bonus features in the form of a double Wild symbols, Scatter symbols free spins and multipliers.
Double Wilds for Bigger Wins
Instead of having just a single Wild symbol, Santa Paws has gone the extra step and added as second in the spirit of the holidays. This means that the big lovable polar bear Santa Paws and his aquatic red nosed helper Rudolph both act as Wild symbols.
Both Santa and Rudolph can be used to replace any of the other standard symbols in order to form a winning combination. The only symbol they cannot replace is the penguin Scatter symbol.
Free Spins with Random Multipliers
If you are on the hunt for free spins, keep an eye out for the little gift-bearing penguin. The penguin plays the role of the Scatter symbol in Santa Paws and is the key to unlocking the very lucrative free spins round. The penguin actually pays out from just 2 symbols anywhere on the reels. If you manage to land 3 or more penguins, you will activate the free spins bonus.
In the bonus round, you will receive 12 free spins. While this doesn’t sound like much, each spin in the bonus round comes with a random multiplier. These can then accumulate and add up to 7x any winning combination!
