Treasure-Snipes: Christmas Slot is a Festive Pirate Adventure
I’m a fan of Christmas, and I am a fan of pirates, the romanticized Hollywood version of pirates at least. However, I don’t want both of those things together. Similarly, I love to eat chocolate and noodles but certainly not at the same time. Although, noodle made out of chocolate with sweet toppings definitely doesn’t sound like a terrible idea.
It’s a pirate’s life for me
If you’re going to avoid walking the plank or getting marooned on a desert island, you’re going to want to avoid calling it a boat.
The slot’s wild symbol will appear stacked on the reels. If it’s involved in a winning combination, an animation will be triggered showing a full-view look at the fearsome pirate captain. Although it doesn’t add anything to your winnings, it really does add to the enjoyment of the gameplay.
A round of eight free spins is triggered with the appearance of three or more Christmas skulls. Once triggered, all the low-value symbols will be removed from the reels. Additionally, during free spins only wild, scatter, and bonus symbols will appear on reel three.
Treasure-Snipes: Christmas slot free spins are retriggerable awarding an additional eight free spins with every trio of Christmas skulls that appear on the reels.
The appearance of six or more chests on the reels will trigger a round of the slot’s bonus game. Once triggered, the slot’s regular symbols will become faded and the triggering chests will be locked in place. The slot’s fifth reel will also be locked behind a gate.
When the bonus round gets started, you will then have three spins to add additional chests to the reels. If you manage to add one, your three spins will be reset. However, if you go three spins without adding another chest, your round will be over. If you manage to fill reels one through four with chests, you’ll unlock the fifth reel for a shot at the mini, mega, super, or grand jackpot amounts. Once your bonus round has concluded, all your winning values will be combined.
The addition of the bonus game really does round out the slot’s bonus features nicely giving you a great selection of winning opportunities.
Is Treasure-Snipes: Christmas slot ready to set sail?
The combination of Christmas and pirates in Treasure-Snipes: Christmas slot just doesn’t make sense. As a result, it just ends up feeling like the developers realized at the last second that it’s December, and they’d better find a way to get a Christmas slot out. There may even be a way to do a tongue-in-cheek version of a pirate Christmas making fun of the absurdity, but that’s not what Treasure-Snipes: Christmas slot is. This is a bit of a shame because the slot has a lot going for it. It features great graphics and an interesting array of bonus features.
The slot also features high volatility ensuring that you’ll be waiting a little longer than you’d like for the tide of wins to come rolling in. The slot’s volatility is somewhat mitigated by the fairly healthy 96.18 RTP but thanks to the small 4,600x max multiplier you’ll have to be betting some serious amounts per spin to grab a big win.
