ALL ABOUT JINGLE SPINS SLOT
It’s that time of year when the seasonal slots of questionable quality are coming thick and fast! With a limited lifespan, it’s no wonder these games are never in anyone’s Top 10 of the year – why would a developer invest huge sums in a slot that’s only going to be played for a few weeks?!
Maybe that’s a little unfair – because whilst this run of the mill slot from NetEnt doesn’t push any boundaries, it’s still got some fun features in it – look out for Santa’s Baubles delivering extra treats on your spins, and the free spins round where you can claim 50 spins with re-triggers.
That’s NetEnt in the Xmas spirit for you! The maximum payout on any spin is 1,000x and the variance is low to medium. So this is one with popular appear rather than being aimed at the high variance fanatics.
Jingle Spins Game Set-Up
Jingle Spins has a jolly 5 reels and 3 rows, with a Xmas tree sitting to the right of the reel set and Santa’s helpers sitting above. The reel set looks like it is sat in a fireplace, and to the left is Santa himself, cranking a lever with each spin to set a wheel of fortune rolling. This wheel delivers baubles that activate features in the main game.
Jingle Spins can be played from 20p to £200 per spin and has a 96.48% RTP.
Jingle Spins Game Symbols
This is a cute-looking slot and it comes with five low value symbols – the cards 10 through to Ace. There are also five Xmas-themed premium symbols – the pinecone, the reindeer, the bells, the oranges and the red and gold bauble. The bauble is the highest paying at 10x for five on a payline.
Look out as well for wild symbols. These substitute for all others but also come into play in triggering free spins. The bonus round is set off by landing a wild underneath a Free Spins bauble held by one of the elves.
Jingle Spins Slot Features
Jingle Spins Baubles
To set off any of the four features in the base game you will need to acquire baubles! These are released when the wheel on the right of the screen lands in the bauble position on any spin. When it does, the bauble goes to one of the elves above the reels. Then, with each subsequent reel spin, the bauble is passed along the line of elves from right to left, before it drops off after the 5thspin.
Each bauble will represent a feature – cash prize, wilds, mystery spins and free spins. To activate the feature, the bauble must line up with a Wild that lands on the main reels beneath.
The win potential is not massive, even with these features. But the suspense of watching the bauble move down the line and waiting to see if a wild lands beneath is a nice trick that keeps this slot entertaining.
Free Spins Round
Free Spins are triggered fairly regularly and come in sets of 7, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 50. The amount of spins is displayed on the bauble. The good news is, as its Xmas, NetEnt have built the game so that when you are in free spins mode, EVERY spin releases another feature bauble to the elves! So that’s more chances of hitting a feature of cash prize, wilds, mystery spins or more free spins!
The Slot Buzz Verdict
- Graphics 88/10
- Gameplay 88/10
- Features 99/10
- Value 88/10
Jingle Spins is a fun little Xmas slot game. With a low-ish variance it’s good fodder for bonus money play and will have a broad appeal to slots players of all shapes and sizes. The Xmas treats that get delivered when the baubles and wilds line up are great fun, and despite the relatively small top payout of 1,000x we recommend giving this one a spin or two in the run up to Xmas!
