The long-awaited Christmas season is about gifts and relaxation, and therefore, online entertainment developers cannot ignore this topic. The creators of video slots do their best to set up users in a festive mood long before the New Year. The first slot machines with Santa, deer and elves appear every year in October-November, and by mid-December gambling sites are full of Christmas slots, like a Christmas tree decorated with balls. In order to make it easier for players to navigate the variety of seasonal choices, we have compiled the top 5 best video slots for the New Year 2019. Happiest Christmas Tree by Habanero This slot does not use animated characters, there is no hint of Santa and his helpers. The central role went to the New Year tree, which appears in almost every home for the holidays. In the Happiest Christmas Tree game, the image of an evergreen beauty combines the functions of both wild and scatter. But the developers divided the symbols of the lower and upper order very clearly: everything that is used to decorate the Christmas tree is assigned to the first group, what is put under the Christmas tree as gifts – to the second. The bonus game in the Happiest Christmas Tree slot deserves special attention, in order to enter which the gambler will have to collect his own collection of Christmas tree decorations. A set of multi-colored glass bells, balls, crescents and stars takes the player to the Prize Pot, where they have to turn over the Christmas wreaths, which in European countries are usually hung on the doors of houses during the festive season. Having found three identical toys under the wreaths, the user multiplies his winnings. The set of bells can deliver the most joy, it allows you to increase the bet by 10 thousand times! Leprechaun Carol from Pragmatic Play The developers from Pragmatic Play cheated a little when they chose an Irish leprechaun as the main character for the New Year’s slot. In fact, the creators of the game made a continuation of the story about the mythical dwarf, which was presented to users a few months before. The processing of the slot machine, apparently, took place in a hurry, so some of the details look rather strange. For example, a rainbow against the background of a winter landscape, which decorates the playing field and is used as a wild, or mushrooms on a snowy meadow, which determine the value of the multiplier during a series of free spins. However, the Leprechaun Carol slot machine is able to set the gamblers in a Christmas mood, thanks to a large number of pleasant surprises. As many as four types of bonuses are activated randomly in the standard game mode. Three more types of free spins (from 3 to 20 free spins) guarantee big wins. Under such conditions, hunting for pots of gold no longer looks like a strange undertaking at Christmas. Jingle Spin from NetEnt There are no inconsistencies with the Christmas theme in the Jingle Spin slot machine, however, an experienced gambler, having launched this slot, will definitely remember another project from NetEnt – EggOMatic. The new game completely repeats the mechanics of the 2013 slot machine, and yet, it deserves the closest attention of users when choosing online entertainment for the New Year. Jolly Santa Claus in aviator glasses is responsible for starting the reels in Jingle Spin. With a special lever, he activates five coils in the central part of the screen and the Wheel of Fortune behind him. On the wheel, additional bonuses fall out in the form of Christmas balls, which are sent to Santa’s helpers – elves sitting above the reels of the video slot. From time to time, elves release valuable symbols from their hands, increasing the size of the win. The same balls launch a series of free spins, the number of which can reach 50 free spins! Selfie Elfie by Playtech Unlike the unremarkable twin elves in the Jingle Spin slot by NetEnt, Santa’s main helpers in the Selfie Elfie slot have an expressive appearance and a memorable character. The game has a brutal character with stubble and a black eye patch and a charming elf girl, but the whole plot revolves around a young narcissistic elf who does not get tired of taking selfies and joint photos with other characters. His portrait is used as a wild, and during the random bonus feature Selfie Elfie Respins, the main character is photographed with Santa, his wife, a deer or other elves, thereby increasing the number of wild symbols on the reels. The slot machine provides a series of free spins of 8 free spins when three scatters with the logo of the slot appear on the reels. In this mode, the young elf continues to take selfies, replacing individual icons with wilds. Replacement icons are determined by spinning the wheel over the playing field. Among other bonuses, three additional free spins for Selfie Elfie can fall on the wheel. Fat Santa by Push Gaming Big Santa is in a hurry to celebrate. Still – after all, at the long-awaited celebration you can profit from Christmas cakes! The favorite treat not only gives strength to the old man in the red suit, but also makes him bigger right before the eyes of the gambler. In the free spins mode, Santa eating muffins is able to cover the entire 5×5 playing field, promising new free spins and gifts. In the standard mode, a happy Santa throws pleasant surprises for the player in the form of additional wins and wilds. The Fat Santa video slot also has a Buy-A-Bonus feature that allows you to switch to a bonus at any time for a fee of 80 times your current bet. This is what has become a distinctive feature of the Christmas slot mechanics from the previously released Fat Rabbit game, which won the hearts of many gambling fans in 2018. Many developers have taken care of the release of Christmas-themed video slots on the eve of 2019 in advance, so gamblers will certainly not have problems choosing online entertainment during the holiday season. For those who will not find anything suitable for themselves among the latest releases, there is always a collection of New Year’s slot machines from different years, which includes hits from the best world-famous studios.
