Merry Scary Christmas Slot Review

We stroll through life as highly animated beings with seemingly immobile, inanimate objects around us, hardly pausing to sense their true aliveness. Our minds have settled on their deadened presence, and resultantly they're always going to be immobile, inanimate objects to us. Until it's 4 am and you're unable to claim some shut-eye because there are whistles you've never heard before… peeping out your window crossing fingers it's Santa, only to crumble into the reality that your ankle just received a touch and the loud noises are from nowhere else. Still, inside your room. 4 hours of sleep later, it's the ultimate joy of present unwrapping time. You're frightened to the core because that stuffed bunny toy is glancing at you with evil eyes, and the Christmas decorations are singing horror carols. There's a first for everything. Let's hope this haunted Christmas is the first and last. Call the Mascot gaming provider house clearers, and they can do the trick.

Game Play

This game is played on a 5 reel, 3-row grid, with 10 paylines, an RTP of 96.98%, a max win of €92,500 and medium volatility.

Merry Scary Christmas has a minimum bet of 0.20 and a max bet of 50.00. Only the highest win per bet line will be paid, and winning combinations start from left to right.

The symbols you'll be spinning and working with are a gingerbread man, a lollipop, a bunny, a candy cane, and the royal family as Christmas tree decorations. The lower paying symbols will pay 0.30 for 5, and the higher paying symbols will pay 1.50 for 5.

This game has a Santa's Gifts feature. When 5+ colourful gift symbols are visible, it'll trigger this feature. They all transform into a Wild, a coin prize, Free Spins with a Multiplier.

The value of each depends on the type of gift symbol there is.
The Coin prize = All the gifts totalled together is the current spin's win.
The Wild with a Multiplier = When these symbols are Wilds, they can replace all other symbols. These Multiplier Wilds are multiplied with one another, and each multiplier is applied once.

Then you have a generous load of Free Spins, and the gift symbols may gift you this. Moreover, they'll be automatically played parallel to the bet with which it was activated. So there is a possibility of winning more Free Spins too. Also, a minimum of 1 extra gift symbol will be added with each Free Spin.

There is also a Risk'n'Buy additive in this game. After every spin, you can choose it. It's a choice of "do I want to risk my current win and go to the Free Spins, or do I want to buy the Free Spins at a certain cost and go to them right away?". If you choose the risk, your current winnings will be deducted from your balance in bet form, and if you choose to purchase, the value will be deducted. Unfortunately, this isn't available in autoplay, a note to bear in mind.


This stylish game has minimal features, but each one is generously loaded in its ways:

Santa's Gifts Feature = 5 gift symbols have special items inside of them, all beneficial
Free Spins = Your chance to win higher prizes, one of the gift symbols may hand this over to you
Risk'n'Buy = You can either risk your winnings or buy Free Spins


The graphics in this game are mesmerizing. They're HD, realistic, perfectly detailed and soothingly unified. Mascot knows how to utilize space well. The grid is placed in the iconic hearth. There are colourful presents in the foreground, with a Christmas tree, the cosy carpet and fireplace decorations. The Risk'n'Buy feature offering blows up in misty red, an exciting additive. The audio file the air in conjunction with the theme and the technical foundation allows for speedy playing and easeful gaming.

Max Coin

The maximum coin in the online Slot is €92,500


Round of applause for you, remaining in a haunted space to reap the rewards of facing your fears deserves a standing ovation. Not so scary, after all. Mascot softened the edges, and the joy of Christmas overpowered the liveliness of inanimate objects. Now that we're feeling stronger, shall we go in again?
