Secrets of Christmas is a 5-reel, 25 fixed pay line slot that offers a festive 96.7% RTP for players. Set out to look like you are peering through a festive window in a winter cottage, the reels spin inside the frame. Filled with christmas themed symbols and surrounded by a garland and lights, the whole game exudes christmas spirit. Your higher value symbols include a bell, candle, gingerbread house, milk and cookies, and of course a present filled stocking. Lower values are represented by the usual card symbols A, K, Q. J, 10 and 9 but they have a Christmas twist, they are all designed to look like garlands.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 25p in Secrets of Christmas and can be increased up to £125 per spin. You can amend your coin level and coin value which can be found on either side of the spin button. Remember to double check your stake amount before hitting the spin button.
Wild Symbol – A christmas themed slot wouldn’t be the same without Santa, and he is your wild symbol here. He substitutes for all other symbols except the scatter and of course he brings festive cheer with him too.
Scatter Symbol – What is christmas without presents, and what is a slot without a scatter symbol? Luckily for you the Secrets of Christmas scatter symbol is a bag of presents! Land three or more of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger the bonus spins.
Bonus Spins Feature – Once you have triggered the bonus by landing three or more of the toy sack scatter, you will enter the feature. First you will be given the choice of picking from a selection of christmas presents on the screen. The number of picks you get is dependant upon the number of scatter symbols you landed.

Each christmas gift will reveal a bonus that will be added to your bonus spins round. Once you have picked your gifts you will be allocated with 10 bonus spins and they will begin.
