How to Play Jingle Spin Slots
Jingle Spin is a Christmas themed slot game, developed by NetEnt. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting from just 20p a spin. Father Christmas stands to the right of the reels, putting in the manual work with each spin. There are bauble wilds, free spins and even a surprise bauble on this wish-list, which can be triggered with the help of some little wooden gnomes in this festive casino game.
In this game we have a wooden gnome version of Santa stood to the right of reels, with five little smiling gnomes sat above the reels. You have 20 paylines to play with and the highest value symbols look like carvings of what they are depicting. Some of the symbols include a green bell, a bauble and a reindeer, all of which have a wooden resemblance. They look great!
Prepare for the Festive Fun
Your 20 paylines are fixed in Jingle Spin, and you can choose how much you wish to bet against these paylines.
The first thing you can do is adjust your coin value. The value shown underneath reel 5 where it says ‘Coin Value’ is the bet per payline, so this is multiplied by the 20 paylines to create your bet amount per spin. With this in mind, the minimum coin bet is 20p, and the highest is £20.
As well as the coin value, you can increase the ‘Bet Level’. This adds extra weight to all of the paylines and will increase your overall stake per spin if you change it.
Be sure to check underneath the spin button for the total bet before you start Jingle Spinning.
All of the symbols in this game, including Santa himself, look like they have been carved from wood. It’s certainly a different look, and they could pass for ornamental decorations, we suppose.
Winning lines are played from left to right, and you need to match three or more of the symbols on a payline to win.
The highest value ornament on your reels is the red bauble with the yellow pattern. Matching five of these on a payline can award you up to a whopping 1000 times your coin bet.
A slice of orange with a hint of cinnamon could award you up to 700 times your coin bet, should you land the maximum five-of-a-kind on a payline.
The miniature Christmas tree bauble with a tiny star on top could pay out a maximum of 500 times your bet for a five-reel match.
A prancing reindeer with some very well-crafted wooden antlers can pay out 400 times your coin bet if you land 5 of them on a payline. That’s almost the whole clan!
An ornamental pine cone could award you up to 200 times your coin bet for matching five-of-a-kind on a payline.
The card values from Ace to Ten have maximum payouts between 75 and 50 times your coin value.
With every spin of the reels, Santa pulls on a lever which spins the wheel behind him, too. If Santa’s wheel lands on a bauble, it will jump up to rest on a gnome’s lap. With each subsequent spin, the baubles will move one gnome along to the left, until they drop off the other side.
The features within the baubles are triggered if a Wild symbol appears on a reel below a gnome holding one.
A yellow present with a big red bow on top is the Wild symbol in the Jingle Spin slot. It can substitute for any of the standard symbols in play to create and extend winning paylines.
If the gnome at the top of the reel with the Wild in is holding a feature bauble, you will win whatever that feature is.
Spreading Wild Bauble
A red Symbol with a ‘W’ and arrows on it is the spreading Wild symbol. If you land a Wild under this one, more Wilds will appear in a circle around the triggering Wild.
You are very likely to get a big win from this to add to your prize pot!
This bauble is green with a number inside it and two arrows, depicting the number of free spins.
If this is the bauble held by the gnome and a Wild symbol appears below it, between 7 and 50 free spins can be won. They can be re-triggered too! Think of all the potential free spins from Santa!
The coin win is the golden symbol with a number on it, perhaps the easiest one to decipher. Whatever the number is on the golden bauble will be the winning coin value.
This one has a multi-coloured icon and can contain any one of the features, so you will randomly get either a coin win, free spins or the spreading wild.
A Christmas Cracker of a Slot
Played to a soft backing track with the odd jingling bell, there are plenty of twinkles in the air to help you get into the festive spirit with the Jingle Spin slot.
The wooden effect in this game is so different to what we usually see, and having Santa spin his wheel as you spin yours gives the feeling that there are two spins for the price of one. He’s also pretty generous with the baubles that come out! It’s simply down to your reel spins as to whether you will reap the rewards.
The Return to Player (RTP) value of Jingle Spin is 96.48% and it has a medium variance.
