Jingle Jingle Slot Review
Christmas! That special time of year where we end up destitute as a result of buying loved ones gifts they don't truly need. Such a joyous time of year that shops need to remind you about it from early August! Did you know that Coca-Cola helped create the image of Santa Clause we have today? Before being featured in Coke advertisements, Santa was portrayed in a variety of ways, including as a gnome! The suits were also a range of colors. After I found this out it somewhat destroyed my romantic ideas of Christmas.
I don't wanna be a real-life Scrooge though and obliterate your Christmas. So, let's focus on the positive:
- The one day of the year that the work phone doesn't ring. (If yours does, you might want to think of a career change)
- The one day of the year where whole families can gather to dine on dry, tasteless turkey and lie about how delicious it is.
- Possible office Christmas Party hookup hopes are met or dashed! So, your burning question is either answered negatively or replaced by a burning sensation a week later.
Seriously though, Christmas brings out the kindness and frivolity in the most somber of souls. So, it's no wonder that Booming Games have created Jingle Jingle, a video slot that parades itself across all platforms and devices. There's something so inherently upbeat about Christmas that I just couldn't help feeling a child-like grin creep across my face. Jingle Jingle is playful and innocent, like the Christmas every kid deserves.
Jingle Jingle is a 5 reel and 30 payline slot which makes it appealing to players who are fond of low volatility. The paylines are adjustable though (down to a minimum of 1), so this slot can accommodate risk seekers too. Every single symbol is Christmas orientated: Jingle Jingle sign, Santa, 3 kids, present, star, bauble, snowflake and lights. Jolly Old Saint Nick is the wild symbol which substitutes for everything except the scatter (Jingle Jingle sign). Booming Games have got a pretty good setup, splitting their controls between the top and bottom panels. Up top, there is Paytable Info, Balance, Bet, Mute, Quickspin, Info and Exit. Down below are Bet Per Line, Lines, Win, Spin, Auto and Bet Max. The Autoplay has no advanced settings – BAH HUMBUG!
3 or more scatters anywhere activates 10 Free Spins which are limitlessly re-triggerable. There's a Free Spins counter which displays the number of Free Spins left. The bet amount and number of active lines will always remain the same as the activating spin.
Perma 2-Way-Pay: Remains active at all times. The highest active paylines in both directions (ie right to left and left to right) are paid. An exception are paylines with all the same symbols, which are paid only once. Wild X3: If any wilds are joined by other symbols, the active paylines are tripled once!
The graphics are distinctly old syle cartoons and are charming. Music wise there are only so many times a fully grown adult can listen to the same Christmas jingle, so enjoy, then mute. The sound effects are a joyous treat though and really add to the atmosphere. Unwrapping this present of a slot on every device I tested was a pleasure. 100% in the performance department!
There's an innocence to this slot that is wonderful, and it's a delight to play. Some slots are better in many departments, but few fit together so nicely. Whether you're a fan of Christmas or not, it's tough not to get into the spirit of the season playing Jingle Jingle. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and I hope Santa gives you some great winning spins as a gift!
