Red Tiger has been on a roll recently, releasing several slots that have been popular in the casino community. Starting from this year’s Laser Fruit up to Fruit Blox just recently. For Christmas season, they’ve prepared another one for players around the globe. While it used to be an exclusive slot, this slot is now seeing a wide release on November the 20th, meaning it’s out now across all good Red Tiger casinos. Find out more in our Jingle Bells slot review!
Jingle Bells Overview & Symbols
Just by looking at the mere facts of the game, we can discover a classic Red Tiger formula. An RTP of 96.18% and the 5-reel, 3-row formula. The slot boasts a hit rate of 24%, meaning you’ll receive a winning spin roughly quarter of the time. Not exactly high on the volatility list, but not bad either. So far, so good.
The symbols themselves are quite classic as well. We have the usual suspects with the A, K, Q, J, 10 family and an assortment of premiums. The wild in this game substitutes for any other symbol, as well as pays out the most. The rest of the premium symbols are, of course, Christmas related. Candy canes, bells and socks make this for a lively and comfortable slot experience.
Jingle Bells Main Game & Features
The main game has 4 different features on display, which makes for an interesting gaming experience. You never know what to expect! First of all, we have the rather hilarious raining wilds. In this feature, Santa walks across the entire slot and throws around wilds all over the place. While we are not sure of the exact number of wilds that end up hitting the reels, the average seems to be around 3 or 4.
There are three other features to boot. One of the most impressive ones is the colossal wild drop. This causes a 3×3 wild symbol to drop down. If it lands in the middle 3 reels, it can create insane wins. In our testing, we managed to get a win of 160x, which is quite high, considering the maximum win of this slot is only 800x. Another feature can turn any reel into a winning one, guaranteeing you’ll only be awarded a win which consists of premium symbols. The last feature simply features Santa going over to a Christmas tree to turn up a multiplier, which will increase your overall base game wins.
Jingle Bells Bonus Game
There are two bonus games available. The first one is triggered by landing three free spins symbols anywhere on the reel. Afterward, you get to choose one of the bags out of 3 to open up. These will award you free spins games and the number can go up to 25. The regular features from the base game such as Santa throwing wilds can appear, but other than that it is a pretty simple and lackluster bonus.
The second bonus comes by receiving 3 Santa’s sleigh symbols across the reels. This triggers a “pathway” bonus similar to The Marvelous Mr. Green or Totem Lightning, a classic feature of Red Tiger games. All you have to do is send as far as possible to get a high winning. Of course, it is all random, but it’s worth noting that is during this feature that the possibility of an 800x wins can appear!
Jingle Bells Conclusion
Overall, Jingle Bells is a nice little slot that has a classic Red Tiger feel. While this game may not be brand new, it certainly does not feel dated and is fun to play. While this one may not be for those of us who like high volatility games, given the low maximum win, it is a slot worth trying out this Christmas season. Who knows, you might even get an epic colossal wild and get a huge win in the base game! The game is out now on all good Red Tiger casinos. Disagree with us?
