- Use the Free Spins Bonus to help Santa eat all the pies
- Buy the Free Spins Bonus to make things more interesting
Fat Santa slot is a Christmas game from Push Gaming that takes the mick a bit out of Santa being, well, fat. It doesn’t just do this in the title of the slot though, it even has him eating pies as part of the bonus! It’s a lot of fun, but let’s take a look in more detail to see if it’s actually any good.
Firstly, there’s the design. The graphics here are excellent and everything just screams Christmas. The background is lovely, the symbols look great and you have characters like elves, pies and of course Santa himself. It’s probably the best looking Christmas slot we’ve seen. You have a 5×5 set of reels here which is unusual, and welcome. These offer you 50 paylines in total, and your job is to get a winning combination from left to right along one of these paylines. You do this using the base symbols which are listed as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Mint or Green Bauble (lowest value)
- Orange or Red Bauble
- Elf or Fat Santa (highest value)
Fat Santa Slot Bonuses and Features
The Fat Santa symbol here is actually a Wild symbol as well. What does this mean for you? It means that if it can substitute for another symbol and form a win, it will! But it will also pay out for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline like other symbols.
Santa’s Sleigh Feature. This is a feature that can be triggered at random while the reels are spinning. If it is, you’ll see Santa fly across the reels and leave Christmas Pie symbols in random positions on the reels. These works as sticky Wilds, substituting for all other symbols in the game and replacing the symbols that land underneath them to help you get some more wins once the reels finish spinning.
Free Spins Bonus. A good Christmas slot has to have a Free Spins Bonus right? Of course it does, and Fat Santa slot certainly has one. It’s triggered in a slightly more unusual way compared to landing just 3 Scatter symbols as we usually see. This is activated when you land a Fat Santa symbol along with a Wild Christmas Pie symbol anywhere on the screen. You’ll be given a number of free spins along with some extra features. If a Christmas Pie symbol lands on the screen, Fat Santa will move to the symbol and eat it, collecting it for you. You’ll notice a meter at the bottom of the reels start to fill up as he does so. Continue to fill it up and Fat Santa will get even fatter, giving you more free spins.
Buy Feature. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to wait for the Free Spins Bonus to trigger, you can always activate it yourself. Just press the Buy Feature button and pay a fee of 80x your bet to start it. I’m not sure this is really the best way to go, but some people might appreciate it.
Fat Santa slot from Push Gaming is another Christmas themed slot that’s trying to be a bit different from the others. It has some great graphics and animations, a 5×5 grid and features which are both fun and work pretty well to provide some nice payouts. I’m a big fan of how Santa has to eat pies to get more free spins and the animations for this work really well. If there’s one thing a Christmas themed slot should really be it’s fun, and this one hits the nail on the head there. I would have liked to have seen some more features on offer in the Free Spins Bonus like some multipliers for instance, but you can get quite a few free spins so that’s the compromise. Overall, it’s a fun slot with some good rewards and a great design so be sure to check it out, whatever time of the year it is! Leave a comment down and let us know what you think.
