Wouldn't it be fun if Santa Claus was actually a friendly polar bear and if his helpers and gift recipients were actually other furry animals? Well, that's that the team at Microgaming thought when they created Santa Paws, a fun game that will hopefully give you a Christmas-sized payout!
Santa Paws offers up a fairly basic slot experience. As you can immediately tell, the graphics, effects, and music are all solid, but none is particularly outstanding in any way. Likewise, the bonus features are also fairly run-of-the-mill.
The key to striking it rich in Santa Paws is to aim for the animals, for they are the icons that will lead to the cool bonus features. First, the penguin is the key to free spins. Have at least three of him come up on the screen to win 12 free spins that benefit from a 7x multiplier. Meanwhile, Santa Paws himself is the game's wild icon. Rudolf the whale is an additional wild in the free spins bonus. Last but not least, there is a gamble feature on hand for all of you risk-takers out there.
