NextGen Gaming is hoping to spread a little festive cheer courtesy of Foxin’ Wins A Very Foxin’ Christmas. Fresh from his recent cruise ship-inspired escapades, Foxin’ is back on home turf in this 5 reel, 25 payline game. Goodies on offer include free spins with all payouts doubled and a pair of instant win bonus awards. Play in Superbet mode to add more wilds into play. Stakes range from between 25p and £625 per spin.
The setting here is a lavishly decorated drawing room at Foxin’s house. The lower value playing cards have been given a festive flourish and are joined by rolls of cash, Christmas trees and snow globes. Mrs Foxin’ delivered gifts from her sports car is the best of the standard symbols, offering 1,000 coins if you land 5 on a payline. Helping to create those winning lines is Foxin’ himself, resplendent in a bright red Santa hat – our host replaces everything bar the scatter and delivers awards of up to 2,500 coins per payline.
The other symbol is the pot of gold coins which is the scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on the same spin and you’ll win 5, 15 or 100 times your total stake. You’ll also trigger the Free Games feature and get 10 free spins. All payouts during the free spins are doubled. Land 3 or more scatters here and you’ll get another round of free spins.
Watch out for the animated Fox or Leprechaun as they can trigger the Random Bonus feature – they can jump onto the reels at random on any spin and in the process, deliver an instant win cash bonus.
Foxin’ Wins A Very Foxin’ Christmas also gives you the chance to up your stake and play in Superbet Mode – this adds extra fox pup wilds. Add 25 coins and the pup can hit on reel 3. Pay an extra 35 coins and the pup wilds can land on the middle 3 reels. A top whack 50 coin extra and the wild pups can land anywhere.
If you’ve played the other video slots in the Foxin’ series, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect here. It’s a jolly, perky affair that has a bit of a slapstick feel. It’s all very nicely done but the tone won’t be for everyone. The features aren’t bad though and the multiplier in the free spins round can certainly help things along.
The theme may be a bit too manic for some. If you fancy some light-hearted festive fun then Foxin’ Wins A Very Foxin’ Christmas offers just that. If seasonal cheer is what you’re looking for, there’s plenty of better options out there including NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas or Play ‘N Go’s Holiday Season.
