Book of Santa
Just in time for Christmas, Endorphina released this shiny new slot called Book of Santa. As you might expect, this slot is all about getting you into the Christmas spirit. The slot was released 10th. December 2019 and welcomes you into what we suspect might be Santa’s very own living room.
Book of Santa is played on a 5x3 reel set where you will have 10 paylines available to place your bets on. There you will be able to place bets between 0.01 and up to 50 per spin and the game is available to be played on both mobile, tablet as well as desktop. The RTP is set at 96% and the maximum win is 25 000 coins.
This slot offers several features such as wilds, scatters, expanding symbols, a gamble feature and a free spins feature.
Design and Symbols
Get ready to be surrounded by all things Christmas in Book of Santa. Completely without and of the hustle and bustle of the festive season, you will be welcomed into Santa's home and placed right in front of the fireplace where the reel set is set up. Of course, Santa Clause himself is there too.
Along with some festive music in the background, the symbols found on the reels have been designed to fit into the theme. The symbols of lower value consist of the standard 10, J, Q, K and A in different colours. As well as these five lower value symbols, you will see Santa’s sleigh, a golden star, a golden bell and Santa himself appear on each their symbol. Santa Clause himself being the symbol of the highest value.
There is just one special symbol in this game. The scatter symbol is shown as a hardcover book, presumably the actual Book of Santa. As usual, the scatter has the ability to substitute all other symbols on the reels, giving you the chance to get even more winnings combinations. It is also the symbol that will trigger the free spins round when 3 or more land on the reels.
We have to admit this part of the slot is slightly disappointing as there is only one main special feature going on in Book of Santa. This is the free spins feature that will be activated by the scatter symbol. However, there is also a risk-game available, giving you the chance to double your winnings up to 10 times.
During this game of chance, you will get the opportunity to double your winnings up to a total of 10 times. You will get to select a card from the four cards that are dealt facing down. If you are able to beat the dealer's card, your win will be doubled and you get the chance to do it all again. If the dealer wins, you will instead lose your winnings and the risk game will end. If your pick results in a draw with the dealer, your winnings will remain the same and you will get another go at the risk game.
Free spin feature
This free spin feature will be triggered when 3 or more scatters appear on the reels. You will be awarded 10 free spins along with a special expanding symbol. At first, a random symbol will be selected and will have the ability to expand. When enough of the selected symbol appears on the reels and a winnings combination is made, all of these symbols will then expand over the entire reel they originally landed on. What makes this feature even better, is the fact that the free spins can be won again while the feature is triggered.
Our Thoughts on Book of Santa
Every Christmas these festive slots always seem to pop up from several game providers and while we all love a little Christmas spirit, the slots rarely seem to really impress. Book of Santa from Endorphina is a good enough slot for a couple of fun rounds, but seeing there are only one (two if you count the game feature) special feature and one special symbol, it can get old pretty quick. The design is decent and there will definitely be some players who find this slot more than good enough, but there are far better releases from this provider.
