Fat Santa Review
Push Gaming developed this game with a fat Santa as the main character. It is a slot with both 5 reels and 5 rows, which makes it different from the standard slot machine. With some nice features and a nice Christmas theme, this game has plenty to offer. Read on if you want to know everything about Fat Santa!
RTP en Variance
The RTP, or return to player, for this game is 96.45%. This means that the casino returns this percentage of all bets back to the players. This is quite high! The volatility or variance is high. A high volatility means that you win less frequently, but large amounts.
The playing field therefore consists of 5 reels and 5 rows. Furthermore, a real Christmas atmosphere has been created in the background with snow, small houses, and some details such as a Christmas wreath and gifts. All options can be found at the bottom of the slot machine. From left to right are here: The paytable, the music, your balance, the chosen bet, your win amount, autoplay, and the ‘spin’ button. The ‘Buy a Bonus’ feature is on the left just above the paytable and music.
How does Fat Santa work?
The game works with paylines. Of these, 50 can be completed. This is a reasonable number, but that is because there are 5 rows and therefore more possibilities. Ultimately, the goal is to try every spin to win nice amounts by forming these paylines with the right symbols. In addition, there is of course a bonus round for which you play.
How do you play Fat Santa?
First choose a bet where you feel good. You can choose from twelve different values between 0.25 and 25 euros. The more you bet, the higher the prices are of course. After this it is a matter of turning on the autoplay or continuously pressing the ‘spin’ button and hoping for nice prizes!
The four differently colored Christmas baubles are the basic symbols, and therefore yield the least. In addition, there are another 4 premium symbols consisting of the fairy, the reindeer, the snowman, and the gift. The wild symbol is of course the fat Santa Claus, and can help forming some combinations!
The prizes always depend on your bet, the symbol with which you form the combination, and the amount of that symbol with which you form the combination. In the case of a 5 of a kind, the wild and the elf both pay out 20 times your stake. The other premium symbols also pay fairly well, such as the reindeer (16x your bet). The snowman and the present pay out 10x and 6x your bet respectively when you spin a 5 of a kind. The base symbols only pay out between 1.6x and 2x your bet if you collect 5 of the same.
Santa Sleigh Feature
This is actually a very simple feature that has been added purely to give the player something back every now and then. Sometimes Santa comes out of nowhere and leaves some wild symbols in random places.
You unlock the bonus round as soon as you spin Santa on the 1st reel plus on 1 or more other reels. The intention is that the fat Santa eats as many cakes as possible so that he gets as thick as possible. You start with a total of 5 free spins, which are expanded with 2 to 3 free spins by eating 4 to 5 cakes. The number of cakes you have to eat for this (4 or 5) depends on the level. The wild symbol (fat Santa) is getting thicker and bigger, making it easier for him to get big prizes! This can even go so far that it covers the entire playing field of 5×5 squares. This means a guarantee of 1000x your bet for every spin!
Buy a bonus feature
The Buy a Bonus feature has become increasingly popular and that is why pushgaming has also chosen to add this feature. This costs you 80x your bet, so it is certainly not self-evident that you walk out the door with a profit. Of course, in the bonus round it is possible to win back your bet thousands of times, and this is definitely worth the bet!
Max win & Rating
The maximum win can be more than 6000x your bet, and the game scores 4/5 stars with us!
The game gets a high rating for a number of reasons. In addition to the very nice theme, the game has some nice features to offer. Furthermore, the RTP is very good and due to the high volatility, huge prizes can be won! Recommended!
