Naughty Santa slot has a slightly different layout to traditional video slots. It features five reels and four rows. However, the bottom row only has two symbols on either side – the center is taken up with the multiplier which we explain below.
Each spin has a fixed price of 30 coins. However, there are a few options for altering your bet value. Firstly, you can change your bet level. This can be adjusted between 1 to 10. Secondly, you can change the coin value. This ranges from €0.01 to €20. Both of these options change your total bet value. The minimum bet you can place is €0.30, and the highest is a staggering €6,000.
You could find the interface a little confusing, but your overall bet value is clearly shown in your chosen currency. It also shows your remaining balance, and you can always check the “how to play” tooltip for a full explanation.
Naughty Santa has a host of special symbols and features. It has four low-win symbols which are four different colored crackers. There are also four high-win symbols which are beautiful ladies dressed in Christmas attire. The paytable for these is dynamic and changes depending on your overall bet value.
There is also two wild symbols - Santa, and Naughty Santa. These symbols can appear on reels 1 and 5 and substitute for all symbols except the scatter symbol. If a wild symbol appears in a winning combo, it will expand to cover the whole reel. Also, the normal Santa wild can randomly turn into Naughty Santa which doubles all winning combos.
Aside from the wild symbols, there is the milk and cookies scatter symbol. This can appear anywhere and has its own payout. This is also how the Naughty Santa bonus round is triggered which is explained below. The highest potential single win for Naughty Santa is €120,000 - this is for 5x scatter symbols with a bet level of 10 and a coin value of 20 (Bet value of €6,000).
The low-win exploding crackers can randomly explode. If they do so, they reveal a wild symbol underneath. Also, there is the multiplier feature applied for every spin. This is random and provides a winning multiplier of between 1x to 10x.
Finally, the high-win Santa girls also have a special feature. On any random spin, any of the four high-win symbols can randomly display as a 2x2 or 3x3 symbol which will boost your overall winnings accordingly.
The best bonus feature for this game is the Naughty Santa free spins. The milk and cookies scatter symbol is the trigger for winning free spins. Three scatter symbols award 8 free spins, four scatter symbols award 12 free spins, and five scatter symbols award 25 free spins.
During the free spins, the standard symbols and paytable is used with a few differences. For example, scatter symbols do not appear during the free spins and you cannot trigger any additional free spins. Also, the free spins are played at the bet value that was active when the spins were triggered. With a maximum total of 25 free spins, this gives you a great chance to boost your winnings.

Also, this is considered a medium volatility slot. This means that it strikes a balance between risk and consistency. You can expect to receive semi-regular wins with the occasional larger win.
