Play ‘N Go’s Xmas Magic Video Slot Review

Xmas Magic: Demo

Christmas-themed slots are usually rather gentle, low variance affairs. Play ’N Go has bucked that trend with the release of Xmas Magic. It’s a hugely volatile 5 reel, 50 payline game that comes with a free spins feature where 2 wilds are added to reels 2 through 5 on each free spin. Look out too for stacked symbols. Say ho, ho, ho from between 50p and £100 per spin.

Unfussy design

Considering the festive theme, the design in Xmas Magic is rather understated. The reels appear on roof tiles. Joining the A to 9 royals are candy canes, Christmas stockings and mistletoe which can spin in stacks that are 4 symbols high. Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 mistletoe symbols in combination for a payout of 0.2, 0.8, 4 or 20 times your bet.

Golden gift box wild

Helping to create the winning combinations is the golden gift box which is the wild. This can land anywhere apart from reel 1 in both the base game and the feature. The wild pays like the high value mistletoe symbol.

Free spins with stacks of added wilds

The smiling Santa is the scatter symbol. When he arrives on reels 1, 2 and 3 on the same spin he delivers the Free Spins feature. You’ll pocket an award equal to 4 times your total bet as well as triggering 10 free spins. On each free spin. 2 new wilds are added to the stacks of wilds that are on reels 2 through 5.

Landing 3 scatters during the feature add another 10 free spins to your total. Just like in the base game, the mistletoe spins in stacks that are 4 symbols high. 1 other symbol is also selected at random. This too will spin in 4-high stacks

High variance from Play ‘N Go

Many schmaltzy Christmas slots have about as much bang as a soggy Christmas cracker. That’s certainly not the case with Xmas Magic. This is a super high variance slot which is just what we’ve come to expect from Play ’N Go. If you’re looking for a slot to get you in the festive spirit that also offers high risk but potentially high reward action, then give Xmas Magic a look – you could win 1,000 times your bet on every spin or free spin.

If you like the Christmas theme, ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers Saving Christmas would be my choice.
