The Santa Surprise slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Santa Surprise is 2.95% and should be valid at all Playtech casinos.
“Ho ho ho! It's time to get jolly on your naughty asses!”
Santa Surprise had 5 reels, 20 paylines and you can bet 10 coins on each of the paylines.
The ‘Santa’ symbol is wild and doubles all wins it contributes to.
There are two bonus features when playing Santa Surprise. The first is activated when you receive three or more of the ‘House’ symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10 complimentary spins with all wins tripled.
The second bonus symbol is activated when you receive 3 or more of the ‘Christmas Tree’ bonus symbol in a row on an active payline starting from the left side of the reels. When this happens you will be taken to a new screen showing a Christmas tree and 6 presents. You are allowed to pick the same number of presents as Christmas Tree symbols you received and each present awards a cash prize.
A very low house edge combined with good graphics, a great player interface and some alright bonus features make Santa Surprise the type of surprise we like.
