X-Mas Gifts Slot is the Gift That Keeps on Giving
They say that Christmas is about good cheer and giving. We all know that’s not true, right? Christmas is about presents! The beautifully wrapped presents with ribbons and bows and the possibility of getting exactly what you want. It’s fantastic!

The slot is a winter wonderland populated by one buff dwarf with a pair of pickaxes and a Christmas hat. We’re not entirely sure what a dwarf mining for precious gemstones has to do with Christmas gifts, but considering it’s the season of giving, we’ll let Belatra have this one.
The symbols that populate the reels are beautifully illustrated. In addition to frosted cookies, Santa sacks, presents, and baubles, the slot features low-value playing card suit symbols crafted from gemstones, which only adds to the confusing nature of the slot’s theme.
Are you on Santa’s naughty or nice list?
Have you ever had that dream where it’s Christmas morning and you race downstairs to find the tree all but hidden behind a giant mountain of presents? X-Mas Gifts slot isn’t that. This is more like you’re 40 and single with a solitary present under the tree that you bought and wrapped for yourself. Luckily, it is something you actually want and not a load of rubbish you’ll need to regift over the next year.
During both the base game and a round of free spins, you’ll randomly be gifted two-by-two-symbol presents. The presents will then pop open to reveal four of the same symbol, giving you the chance to complete winning combinations.
However, if you asked Santa for big wins, you’re going to need to find a few sacks! With the appearance of four or more Christmas sack bonus symbols, you’ll unlock a round of 10 free spins. If you manage to grab three Christmas sack bonus symbols during free spins, you’ll unlock an additional five free spins up to a maximum of 300.
In addition to the chance to unlock a staggeringly large number of free spins, you’ll also have the chance to supercharge your free spins wins with Christmas bauble multipliers. These multipliers will randomly appear on the reels, and if you manage to win when they do, you’ll multiply your win by up to 2,000x.
Strangely, in the slot’s information section, there is mention of a Craft Bonus button that allows you to buy a round of free spins. However, the button appears to be completely absent from the game itself. Maybe next Christmas?
Is X-Mas Gifts slot the best present ever?
Not really, no. X-Mas Gifts slot has a lot going for it. It’s got an impressive €200,000 jackpot and the possibility to score up to 300 free spins at a time.
What the slot does well is, however, marred by the fact that the theme is confusing, and it features an uninspiring 94.23% RTP rating and medium to high volatility. Additionally, for a chance at that €200,000 jackpot, you’ll need to wager a rather large €100 a spin thanks to the slot’s disappointing 2,000x maximum multiplier.
