Well, the mention of Santa Paws means this is a festive slot, but who is the owner of the paws? It turns out it is a polar bear, and he is just one of several festive animals making an appearance in this cartoon-style game.
Microgaming is behind this title, and they’ve included turkeys, owls, and snow-covered letters to look for as you play. Will the game be a winner for you, though?
There are 20 lines involved in Santa Paws, arranged across the five reels.
If you want to make your budget go as far as possible, you’ll be pleased to see a one-cent minimum in play. You could also progress through a few other coin values to reach the maximum of a dollar per line.
The polar bear called Santa Paws is the wild here, just as you might have expected. He looks friendly enough, especially since we found out five of him on a line will deliver the biggest prize in the game. This is worth 4,000x your bet.
The one symbol Santa Paws won’t replace is the penguin, who appears in a festive hat, and carrying a gift. This is the scatter.
Finding three or more penguins is a good thing, because this grants you 12 free spins. Better still, you get a multiplier worth up to 7x in these spins. The whale icon and the polar bear are both used as substitutes in these games, but again, not for the penguin. And did you know the whale is called Rudolf? It’s an odd name, but hey, it’s Christmas!
This game is very appealing and fun, but we were disappointed not to see an autoplay option included in the mix. Aside from that, there is a lot to enjoy here, and this is a very light-hearted game. Microgaming has made sure there are a few quirks that take this out of being a regular slot, and that is enough to make it an easy-going game with lots to look forward to.
So, if you want to play a festive slot game, no matter what time of the year it is, Santa Paws could be the best one for you to try your luck at.
