Xmas Joker is the title of a festive Christmas-themed online slot game that has been developed by the online casino software provider Play ‘n Go. The design of this slot revolves around the treats and gifts associated with the holiday season, and the game plays out over 3 reels and a total of 5 fixed paylines.
In terms of bonus features, the main feature in Xmas Joker is its free spins feature, in which players will be awarded 10 free spins. There is also the chance to trigger up to 50 more free spins by retriggering the free spins feature using scatter symbols. Extra scatter symbols also appear during this feature, awarding multipliers of players’ total bets as an extra win.
Graphics, Imagery and Sound Effects
The Xmas Joker slot is centred on the Xmas Joker, a jolly-looking Christmas elf in a red and green jester’s hat, and the game thus adheres to a classic Christmas theme. This slot has been designed in various shades of red and green to suit the season, as well as incorporating classic seasonal visuals like clusters of holly leaves and berries, bows, bells and sweet confectionaries.
Red and white striped candy cane borders frame each of its 3 reels, and iced gingerbread cookies form the pay line numbers and pay table buttons. Around the centre of the game screen, red ribbons and golden bells decorate the reel set at either side, and the reels themselves are set against a layered green textile backdrop, with the pay table portrayed in fabric in a contrasting shade of red. The games at Canadian casinos are mostly accompanied by a cheerful Christmas soundtrack to add to the mood of festivity.
Symbols on the Xmas Joker Reels
The Xmas Joker online slot from Play‘n Go contains just 5 main symbols on its reels, as is traditional with classic style 3-reel slot games. Players will find symbols of gingerbread men, Christmas baubles, candy canes, bells and Christmas tree stars while they play. All of these symbols also appear stacked on the reels, creating the potential to match symbols across all 5 paylines.
Xmas Joker Scatter Symbol
The Christmas elf symbol serves as the scatter symbol in Xmas Joker, and this scatter symbol activates the main bonus feature in the game. Players must land 3 of these scatter symbols anywhere on the slot’s reels in order to trigger the free spins.
Free Spins Bonus Feature and Multipliers
Once the Xmas Joker Free Spins feature has been triggered, players will be awarded an initial 10 free spins with which to play.
