Santas Wild Ride

Imagine Christmas without Santa. Doesn’t sound right, right? But how about spending Christmas with a very revolutionary Santa? Does that sound appealing at all? If you’re at least a bit curious what it would look like to have an alternative Christmas this year, you should go to your favorite Microgaming casino. They have prepared a special treat for all those who are looking for a new, revolutionary spirit in Christmas holidays – a video slot titled “Santa’s Wild Ride.”

Try not to judge this entertaining slot – it’s not aimed at making fun of Christmas, but merely at introducing another formula for cheerful holiday spirit. “Santa’s Wild Ride” is played on five reels and offers 243 ways of winning. This is due to the fact that winning combinations don’t have to appear along a particular payline, but only left to right (except scatters, which pay any). As for its characters, they are traditional, with an unexpected twist: Santa is still the chubby elderly guy, but instead of sleigh, he’ll ride on a Harley; the elves still have pointy ears, but they have replaced gift wrapping with bike repairing; then there’s beer and sandwiches, some traditional cookies, and a hot, blonde, tattooed Santa’s assistant. If all this is not enough to stir the blood down your veins, then pay attention to those special symbols, such as wilds and scatters, and features that include free spins, multipliers and instant credits.

If you want to play this slot to win, you’ll just have to place some money into the machine. The coin selection isn’t all that great: there are only three denominations on offer; however, this is compensated by the fact that you can place multiple coins, up to 5 of them, meaning that bets can reach $7.50 per spin, which still doesn’t satisfy highrollers, but we can’t exactly say it’s a microscopic sum, either.

In terms of special symbols “Santa’s Wild Ride” offers quite a decent variety. Namely, there are wilds, which replace other normal symbols and award a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, or 4x; then there are scattered Blitzin’ Harley keys, three or more of which award 25 free spins. Now, in those free spins, you can select one of three different wild symbol features: Stacked Wild (stacked across all reels), Expanding Wild (spreads to the whole reel), as well as Trailing Wild (when it slides down the reels, it creates a trail of wilds). Also, all prizes won during the free spins will be doubled. But apart from all these, there’s another feature which gives away instant prizes – it’s called Free Gift Bonus, and you will get it whenever Santa’s special gifts appear on reel 2 and/or 4. A nice treat to top the excellent feature offering, don’t you think?

Well, if you’re really that into traditional Christmas slots, then “Santa’s Wild Ride” may seem a bit extreme. But it’s still as cute and adorable as any other festive game. And its great generosity and cheer will definitely make your Christmas holidays complete.

    Santas wild ride is absolutely one of my favorite Microgaming slots and christmas themed slots. Free gift bonus feature triggers pretty often and free spins are harder to trigger but when they trigger there's gonna be huge winnings almost every time. Base game is also nice and fun and i like these graphics they kinda old school. I play this slot every christmas and sometimes even summer time lol :)

    I like this game a lot and the reason for that is the free spins feature, which is really generous I think. Rarely you can get 25 free spins from 3 scatters from other slots. Design isn't really my favorite but then again I wouldn't expect much from Christmas themed games. I've had a couple of winnings around 100x bet but I think this game has great winning potential.

    Pretty decent 243 way slot from microgaming. Has pretty cool audio but graphcis could be a bit better. Potential winnings on base game are pretty small and the present ''feature'' is pretty useless and waste of time. But the free spins are good, can choose from 3 different ones to get your wilds landing on to the reel and get big win !

    I really don't like this game very much and 97% of the time avoid it . Ocassionally around the Holidays I'll take a stab or two at it . It can pay well if your lucky at the time , but not one to park and play for long periods of time . The bonuses are hard to get in my opinion and you seldom see them and even getting free spins wont make back what u put in to get them. It is fun and different with option choices for bonuses . If you have some coin to lose Id recommend trying it a few times but if you don't Id stay clear of this game there are many more that can pay well and often enough to keep even a small budget playing .

    For me this game has been my nemasis for soooo many years. It can go 1000s of spins without hitting a bonus. I have gone 2250 soins before on a £0.60 stake losing £300 before hitting a bonus that paid £11. Yes i have had a few 500+x stake wins but they are very few and far between. Also i have played this game after i have had bad months on a site and still lost 100s of pounds. Overall its just too high varienence unless you just love wasting money then this is the game for you

    This is one of my favorite games. I won about $500 from a 30 cent bet during the free spins. I hit the Santa and the wilds all across, that was such a site, great win. I have had some great winning streaks here hitting free spins numerous times in a game session, increasing my bet to $1.50. I have hit free spins many many times playing, but I have also played here and not hit them. :) Highly recommend this game because of the free spins, you get 25 of them and it is one exciting ride when you get them.

    Santas Wild Ride in my opinion is definitely one of the best Christmas themed slot games online. I really love that standard Microgaming graphic. Also one of the best things is those 243 ways to win, and all that ways gives you more chances to win. Unfortunately I can agree with bgdadu that free spins are very hard to get, but when I get them I usually get some good wins. All in one this is very good game. My rate is 4/5

    Lately I received a lot of free spins on this slot on some casinos.After I played it on 32red and casino la vida.The free spins are triggered very hard and they don't usually pay that well.Maybe I should increase the bet a little bit.Who knows...I hope I will get lucky on this one, especially because it's Christmas time now
  • This game is getting on a bit now, but when it was released this was widely regarded as being one of the highest variance games Microgaming had released up to that time - it offers 3 different free spin modes, each with their own wild feature, but all 3 are high variance. Best of all, you get 25 free spins regardless of which one you choose! There are stacked wilds, expanding wilds, and trailing wilds (as featured in Avalon2). My favourite is probably the stacked wilds, but I suppose in many ways its all academic - you either get lucky, or you don't! The base paytable is definitely nothing to get excited over, but thats is so often the case with these 243 ways games afterall - its definitely all about the feature.
