Casino game developer Swintt are gearing up for the holiday season by making its popular Golden Reindeer slot available at all their partnering casinos in Malta and Sweden.
Having been something of a staple in studio’s Christmas catalogue since its release last year, players have already enjoyed the slot’s 243 ways to win and festive Free Spins – and now it’s time for those at MGA and SGA licensed casinos to get in on the action too.
Taking place across a 5×3 reel matrix, Golden Reindeer provides everything you’d want from a holiday-themed slot. The gentle ringing of sleigh bells and whistle of cold winter wind provides the perfect soundtrack for players as they go dashing through the snow in search of top wins of 14280x their bet.
Unique symbols to feature in the game are also perfectly suited for the season, with presents, stockings, snowmen, sleighs and Christmas trees making up the slot’s higher-value icons. The theme is even extended to the more traditional ace-through-ten playing card values, with these lower-value symbols being adorned with baubles, bows and Santa hats to really hammer home the holiday spirit.
In terms of the game’s features, the two symbols players need to look out for are the titular golden reindeer and jolly old St Nick, who acts as the game’s scatter. The former is substitute wild that can replace any regular icon to form winning paylines, while the latter is used to trigger the bonus round.
In order to activate this fun, festive feature, players need to land three or more scatters anywhere on the reels within a single spin. When they do, they’ll receive between 8 and 20 Free Spins – depending on the number of triggering symbols – before being transported to a new set of supercharged reels.
With both the background and music changing to herald the start of the feature, here players will get to enjoy their bonus games with the added incentive that the golden reindeer will now add a prize multiplier to any wins that it completes.
Landing more reindeers obviously results in more multipliers being added together, with a maximum boost of 15x really helping players increase their feature wins. Golden Reindeer has already proved to be one of Swintt’s top performing slots in other markets, and the provider is confident that it will continue to spread the festive cheer on its extended re-release.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “Christmas has always been a time for giving – and this year we’re giving back to players at Malta and Sweden-licensed sites by making our popular Golden Reindeer slot available to them for the first time.”
“The game has already proved to be one of the most successful slots in the Swintt line-up and we’re delighted to be able to share its magic with a brand new audience just ahead of the festive period.”
