When the holidays are just around the corner and you're looking for something to put you in the festive mood, I'm sure the first thing that runs through your head is slot machines. No? Well, me either. NetEnt thinks they can get you jingle bells ringing though, with their Jingle Spin slot machine. The game puts you right up against a fireplace with Ol' St. Nick and lets you test your luck. Will you get a sweet gift in your stocking, or a lump of coal?
Jingle Spin is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot set in front of a fireplace during the Christmas season. The game has a neat artistic look to it, and it allows people to feel cozy while they're playing the game. Symbols in the game are well done, and include standard icons done up as ornaments (10, J, Q, K, A) as well as pinecones, reindeer, spinning top, orange with cinnamon, and glass ornament. The music does a good job of conveying wonder, and you're no doubt going to be filled with holiday spirit.
The game's features are also pretty deep, as players get wild symbols, spreading wilds, free spins, win multipliers, and a box that gives out a random bonus feature to help them score wins. Without a doubt though, the coolest feature in this game is the wheel that Santa spins on the right side of the reels. Here, you have different baubles that can be awarded to the elves above the fireplace, who'll drop them into the box to award the features I mentioned above. The mechanic is very well done and gives some tension and suspense to an otherwise laid back title. The game's layout combined with the features give Jingle Spin a posted return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.5%, which is very high for an online slot and means theoretically that you'll lose your money slower than with some other games.
I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed Jingle Spin. The game's atmosphere is excellent, and the gameplay mechanics made it a must play for me. I also gave this slot a go on my iPhone and found that it worked flawlessly as a mobile slot, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to play on the go. If you're looking for a new slot to play around Christmas, then this is a great choice. Heck, I may even play this in the dead of summer!
