The Christmas Eve game can be found at casinos offering Playson software. Playson are an established online gaming provider that have an impressive array of clients. Their games can most often be found as an addition to a larger primary gaming platform provider. As a standard Playson do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable or on the company website. As such we can say that the House Edge of Christmas Eve is 4.07%.
What magic will the night before Christmas deliver to you?
Christmas Eve is a 5 reel game that does not use standard paylines. Instead any 3 or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels starting from the left side of the reels constitutes a win. This is equivalent to 243 standard paylines.
The ‘Present’ symbol is Wild. Whenever the present Wild symbol contributes to a winning combination it will be locked in place and a respin will be awarded.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Christmas Eve and it is activated when you receive three or more of the ‘Santa’ scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 10, 15 or 20 free spins depending on the number of Santa scatter symbols you received. At the start of the free spins a random symbol will be selected from reels 2, 3 or 4 and transformed into a Wild symbol that will remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins. During the free spins each winning spin increases the multiplier that will be applied to the next spin by one up to a maximum of five. Each losing spin resets the multiplier to one.
Christmas Eve offers nothing that even a moderately experienced slots player will not have seen before and combines this with a House Edge that is on the higher end of acceptable. The simple truth is that you can play far better games for less elsewhere. This certainly isn’t a strong offering as far as the Playson catalogue goes.
