There are lots of exciting Xmas-themed online pokies that I can recommend keeping an eye out for over the festive period this year, and two of the hottest new Xmas pokies that are coming soon are the new Polar Paws online pokie from Quickspin, and the new Santa Vs Rudolph online pokie from NetEnt. These two online pokies both promise plenty of action, and you will soon be able to enjoy playing on them over at Casino.com.
We can start by taking a quick look at the new Santa Vs Rudolph pokie from NetEnt, which has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. The main in-play feature on this new NetEnt pokie is the Walking Wilds Respin feature, plus there’s also a Free Spins Bonus Round to win prizes from, and so much more to look forward to. The two Wild Symbols on this game are the Santa Wild Symbol and the Rudolph Wild Symbol, and they can both substitute all other symbols on the reels.
During normal play, Santa will only ever land on reel 1 (the leftmost reel), and Rudolph will only ever land on reel 5 (the opposite reel). During the Free Spins Bonus, these two Walking Wild Symbols can both land in any position across any of the 5 reels. As soon as a Wild Symbol shows up, it will trigger free respins, and on each new respin, the Wild Symbol will ‘walk’ one symbol position across the reels. The respins will only stop when the Wild Symbol has left the reels altogether, and the main Free Spins Bonus will only ever trigger when the two Walking Wilds cross paths and crash into each other. Santa will only ever move to the right, and Rudolph will only ever move to the left.
That’s not all though. You will also be collecting the Santa and Rudolph Wild Symbols each time they land on the reels during the Free Spins Bonus, and filling up either meter to the top will trigger the Santa’s Gift Bonus or the Rudolph Spins Bonus. In the Santa’s Gift picking bonus you can click on items to win up to 188x items your total stake, and in the Rudolph Spins bonus you can win up to 1,350x times your total stake over 3 lucky spins.
The new Polar Paws online pokie from Quickspin has 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines, with regular Wild Symbols, and Multiplier Wild Symbols that can boost any line wins that are in view by 2X, 3X or 4X. The main Free Spins Bonus will instantly trigger when at least one of the Scatter Symbols lands in any position on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. Collecting Elf Progress Scatter Symbols during the Free Spins Bonus can also turn the different valued Bear Symbols into Wild Symbols for even bigger wins.
I definitely like the look and feel of these new online pokies, and I can’t wait for them to arrive. Some of the other popular Xmas-themed online pokies that I can recommend keeping an eye out for while you’re waiting for these new games to arrive are Secrets of Christmas from NetEnt, Happy Holidays from Microgaming, Ghosts of Christmas from Playtech, and Leprechaun Song from Pragmatic Play.
