Microgaming is a UK-based online casino software developer. With registration from the Isle of Man and a large following around the world, Microgaming has become one of the world’s most prolific casino software development companies.
This developer is known for their innovative casino games, and also because they release at least one new online slot every month, if not more. Microgaming is also known for releasing themed slots to celebrate specific major events and holidays, and 2013 saw them releasing their Secret Santa online slot just in time for Christmas.
New Features and 1,024 Ways to Win
The Secret Santa slot hits Microgaming casinos in December of 2013, less than a calendar month before Christmas. This developer has released Christmas themed slots before, but Secret Santa contained a new slot style and updated bonus features for players at Microgaming online casinos.
The graphics, animations and design of Secret Santa are all more highly defined than many of Microgaming’s other festive online slots, and the 1,024 ways to win feature counts any matching adjacent symbols on the reels as a winning combination.
Reel Symbols and Jackpot Payouts
The symbols in the Secret Santa slot all relate in some way to the Christmas season. Players of the slot will see Santa himself on the reels, along with presents, a crackling fire, and a lavish Christmas dinner. Stakes in this slot range from 0.50 to 25.00 per spin, which activates all of the slot’s 1,024 ways to win as well.
The Secret Santa character symbol pays the game’s jackpot of 5,000 coins whenever players land 5 of his symbol during the base game. The next most valuable symbol is the Christmas tree and gifts at 4,000 coins for 5 of a kind.
Updated Secret Santa Bonus Features
When the Secret Santa slot hits Microgaming online casino Sri Lanka in December, players were able to enjoy a range of new bonus features in the game. As well as classic bonuses like wild symbols, scatter pays and free spins, the Secret Santa slot also contains more unique features like Wild Reels and Rolling Reels, a specifically Microgaming product that creates consecutive winning combinations on the reels.
These bonus features offer players a top prize of up to 100,000.00, and are triggered at random during the Secret Santa base game. As such, the scatter symbols are there purely to award scatter pays in any position.
All Slots Casino’s Comments on the Release
At the time of the release of Secret Santa, the Vice President of Player Affairs at All Slots Casino David Brickman commented. He noted that the Christmas season is a time when many people are looking for ways to relax from their usual, busy schedules during the year.
Thus, he and his team at All Slots Casino were excited to offer their players the Secret Santa slot during December of 2013, and were confident that the game would help to enhance the positive feelings of the season and increase Christmas cheer for their players. The Secret Santa slot is still available for players at many Microgaming casinos, both around Christmas and at any other time of the year.
