Not the real one, of course, but you can meet him in the slot game of the same name. This is an engaging new release from Pragmatic Play, so we have high hopes for this one. Those are encouraged by the appearance of some facts about the game when it loads, shown over a frosty, snow-covered background.
Let's get into the festive mood now and see what Santa might have in store for us. Have we been good enough to win prizes this year?
Reels and win lines format
The game uses five nicely-drawn reels and offers 20 paylines to bet on.
What could you bet on Santa slots?
You can bet from one cent to a half-dollar on every line here. You also have an option to choose up to 10 coins to wager per line.
Santa slots notable symbols
It is no major surprise to find Santa working hard here as the wild symbol. He appears on every reel except the first one. He'll also replace most symbols shown in the paytable, but not the scatter or the bonus.
The scatter is a beautifully-decorated Christmas tree. This will only appear on the middle three reels.
Any bonus elements here?
The bonus symbol is a wrapped gift with a bow. Get three of these and you can choose from 12 wrapped gifts in the bonus feature. You can choose as many as the game allows until you reveal a jackpot symbol. There are four jackpots in the game - mini, minor, major, and grand. These are worth x10, x25, x50, and x250 your total bet to trigger the game. The jackpot you have uncovered is then awarded alongside the gift picks you made.
You can also win six free spins whenever you reveal three scatters on the middle reels. In each spin, reels two, three, four, or five can be taken over by wilds. These spins are played on a different set of reels, and yes, you could get wild Santas over more than one reel, too. That's why you only get six spins you cannot retrigger - you could win plenty from these spins.

We loved the Santa game because it packs in lots of festive images, lots of wilds (in our experience), and some cute elves and reindeer too. And since you can win bonuses - including a jackpot - this is one game you won't want to miss this festive season.
