Fat Santa Slot Machine
Push Gaming’s is on a streak: they have announced another yet slot for this year, the Fat Santa. This slot is expected to further boost Push Gaming’s popularity, a company that is slowly going towards the top of the list of game software providers, and this due to the high-end production and intense features that bring some massive payouts. In fact, Fat Santa’s gameplay is quite similar to the Fat Rabbit’s one, so if you have fun playing Fat Rabbit, you’ll really love this Christmas-themed slot.
The Fat Santa is, naturally, the Wild symbol that can substitute all other symbols to form winning combos. Other than being one of the two highest-paying symbols, Fat Santa has some other roles in this slot. It is worth mentioning here that the second symbol that pays just as the Fat Santa symbol is the Santa’s Little Elf Helper.
The symbols in the game appear fully staked, so they bring great winning potential. The Sleigh Feature is the main protagonist, though. It can come randomly and when triggered, you’ll see Santa flying over the reels with his reindeers, throwing Wilds left and right.
Interestingly enough, with the current trend of buy bonus features, Fat Santa will be the first Push Gaming's slot where you can use the Buy-A-Bonus feature and go straight to the Free Spins feature for 80x the stake. But you can also trigger the Free Spins the conventional way, by landing one or more Wild Christmas Pies Scatters along with the Santa symbol.
During the Free Spins feature, you’ll get 5 Free Spins where Santa will try to eat as many Christmas pies as possible. When Santa eats 5 Christmas Pie Scatters, as expected, he will grow and expand 1x1 to 5x5, meaning he can cover the entire reel set. As he grows, he gives additional Free Spins.
Theme & Design
The theme in the Fat Santa slot is far than obvious. This Christmas-themed slot couldn’t portray the theme better, as it implements all Christmas-y elements: the Christmas tree ornaments, the reindeers, the Christmas presents, the Snowman, the Santa’s Little Elf Helper, and the Christmas Pies. The cartoonish graphics are perfectly capturing winter and the holiday season, and in the background, you can see small wooden houses covered in snow and decorated with Christmas lights. Also, you get to see the inside of the house and check the Christmas tree and the presents underneath it.
Wagering & Paylines
The game has 50 paylines, the bets range from $0.25 to $25 and the RTP is quite generous, 96.45%. As mentioned, Santa and his Little Elf Helper pay out the most, 20x the stake for five-of-a-kind. The Reindeer pays 16x, while the Snowman 10x. During the Free Spins, you can get additional wins which can increase the payout for 1000x the stake.
With the Buy-A-Bonus option, Fat Santa can give you a quick win, although the payouts are good enough in the base game as well. The stunning visuals, the crisp graphics, and the pretty interesting features make this slot highly appealing and worth a try. Push Gaming has once again created an attractive game that we highly recommend.
