Secrets of Christmas

Thanks to Secrets of Christmas by NetEnt, you can be in festive spirits all year long.

Secrets of Christmas is a five-reel, twenty-five payline slot with a joyful yuletide theme. It uses traditional images of the yuletide season such as gingerbread houses, a bespectacled Father Christmas, jack-in-the-boxes, milk and cookies, and stockings hanging from the fireplace to conjure up fond childhood memories of spending Xmas with loved ones. But, there are also some more modern inventions such as twinkling fairy lights and a Free Spins Bonus where players get to pick their own gifts from under the tree to reveal multipliers, additional wilds, extra free spins, and fully wild reels. It's the perfect slot to enjoy at home once the nights start drawing in, but thanks to its festive feast of special features, you can also head out and enjoy the summer sunshine as you play it on your mobile device.

Appearance and Sound Effects

You can almost hear the logs crackling on the open fire as carollers sing outside your front door when you start playing Secrets of Christmas. The reels are presented within a window, and each reel position forms one of the glass window panes. To make things even more authentic, a fir garland with holly berries and fairy lights is draped around the window's surround, and as you spin the reels, snowflakes fall onto the windowsill below them. A wonderfully magical soundtrack featuring church bells and sleigh bells perfectly encapsulates the cheerful spirit of the festive season.

The paytable symbols include some lovely images of toy boxes, a winking Santa, gold bells, advent candles, stockings, a glass of milk and a dish of cookies, and gingerbread houses, as well as five playing card symbols which look like Christmas wreaths.

Bonuses and Special Features

Only Santa is worthy of performing the role of the wild symbol in the Secrets of Christmas slot, and when the jolly fellow appears anywhere on the reels, he can create a winning combo by replacing all symbols other than scatters.
The toy box is the scatter, and you'll get ten free games each time three or more land anywhere in view. But, before you start using your free spins, Secrets of Christmas invites you to pick three, four or five presents (N.B., the amount of picks is determined by how many scatter symbols triggered the feature). Inside each gift, you'll find either extra wild symbols, x1 or x2 multipliers, wild reels that cover Reels 2 and 4 for the duration of the bonus, or between two and ten additional free spins.
 

Paylines/Reels

Secrets of Christmas uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty-five fixed paylines, and has a very generous RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 96.70%.

Mobile Compatibility

The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-friendly game controls when played on mobile devices.
