Santa's Wild Helpers Slots Data
The game is played on a 5x3 board with fixed 25 paylines, and bets can range from $0.25 to $250. Theoretical return to player (RTP) of this game is just awful as it's 93.60% and it therefore doesn't even come close to the 94% mark. The only way to make money in this slot game is to trigger the free spins game and the bonus round more often than is theoretically probable.
The main bonus round is the free spins game, and you'll get 5 free spins for three Scatters, 10 free spins for four Scatters or 15 free spins for five Scatters. During the feature, any Wild that lands on reel 3 will expand to fill that entire reel. There's the second bonus feature, and you'll trigger it if you land three Bonus symbols and will then win some cash prizes. Neither of these features are able to generate huge wins, so most of the time they will just serve a purpose of bringing your balance back to positive.
The four gingerbread symbols are the low-win symbols and they pay either 25 or 50 coins for five-of-a-kind, and two more medium-win symbols actually fall in this same category as they pay only 75 coins. It gets progressively better with the three main symbols as they pay 100, 200 and 400 coins respectively, but this is still far from a generous paytable as the maximum prize is actually only 16x your bet, while with low-win symbols you won't get your stake back. Wilds multiply wins, but only if you have at least two Wilds involved in a winning payline. For that you'll get a x2 win multiplier, for three Wilds you'll get x4, and for four Wilds you'll get x8. In the main game, after any spin you can get a Suprise Wild on your reels.
Santa's Wild Helpers Slot Theme
The theme is a bit different than most other Christmas slots, but it's a good one. The game depicts all the usual Christmas symbols and characters, but in a unique style, and most players will enjoy this theme that's dominated by pastel colors and soft lights. The game loads fast, plays fast, and looks good on mobile.
