Generous Santa Slot by Games OS Review
Generous Santa by Games OS — a slot machine with five reels, twenty lines and a Wild symbol. It is themed to Christmas which is a favourite for many players. The main feature of the slot machine is an interesting two-stage accumulative bonus. The maximum win of the slot is 5,000 coins.
How to play Generous Santa
The control panel of the Generous Santa slot looks very simple. Before starting the game, you need to set the values of two bet options:
- The number of active lines
- The line bet
You can do it in two ways:
- Click Bet (to set the bet size) and Add Line (to set the number of active lines)
- Hit the '+' and '-' buttons in the corresponding section above them
The second option is more convenient because you can not only increase the value but reduce it as well. The first does not allow that.
The developers provided the slot with nine betting options — from 0.01 to 1 coin. Lines, as already said, can be from one to twenty.
You can see the final total bet in the Total Bet section on the right. Below, Bet Max is found. With its help, you can set the maximum bet with one click. However, it applies only to the highest number of lines. You cannot change the bet on a line. This is why we can't actually call this wager the highest. However, it is important to remember that hitting the Bet Max button automatically initiates a single spin of reels.
If you do not want to click the button before each reel-spin, you can use Autospins on the left. This button, Like Spin on the right, is designed as a gift box. Two small buttons next to it allow you to make five and ten automatic spins directly from the control panel. If you click the button itself, you can use the '+' and '-' buttons to select the number of auto spins from 5 to 1,000 out of seven available options. A funny owl crouching next to the buttons will help you to make a choice.
On the left of the game screen, you will see two little buttons with icons:
- A speaker
- A frame
The first allows you to turn off the music. By the way, this is the famous Christmas song "Jingle Bells". The second one allows you to start displaying the game in full-screen mode.
Symbols and multipliers in Generous Santa
The slot comes with regular and special symbols.
The Wild symbol
The Wild symbol is a sled with gifts. This picture replaces any other symbols except the cuckoo to make a combination the winning one. If you collect seven Wilds on the Christmas tree, this will be the first step to the accumulative bonus.
With every cuckoo that appears on an active line, the time on the Christmas clock on the right of the screen will approach midnight. You need to collect 60 icons to open the Christmas Eve bonus.
You will see 11 regular symbols in the game. All of them are related to the theme of Christmas and Christmas tree decorations. On the reels, you can see:
- Santa Claus — he pays you 25, 200, 1,500 and 5,000 coins
- Snowman — 15, 100, 1,000 and 3,000
- Rabbit — 10, 75, 500 and 1,500
- Deer — 7, 50, 300 and 1,000
- Snake with a glass of cocktail — 5, 40, 200 and 700
decoration designed as an
- Angel — 4, 30, 150 and 500
- Sock — 30, 125 and 400
- Bells — 25, 75 and 250
- Candles — 20, 60 and 150
- Cane candy — 15, 45 and 120
- Festive hat — 10, 35 and 90
It's nice to note that more than half of the symbols (six to be precise) form winning combinations with as few as two elements. The multipliers are also pretty good. But it's a little upsetting that there are many symbols, which means that the chances of collecting a winning pattern are not that high.
All winning combos of the slot are formed as usual only from left to right starting with the leftmost reel.
Also, all coins in the game are demo and the game is free, for fun and to get familiar with the features of the slot.
You can see the full table of payouts and game rules by clicking the Paytable on the left of the console.
Christmas Eve feature
For fans of Christmas surprises, the developers of the slot have prepared a cumulative bonus, Christmas Eve. To get it, you need to go through two stages:
- Collect seven Wild symbols — sledges. With each symbol, another gift appears on the tree. The joker must occur on an active line
- Collect 60 cuckoo symbols. Each cuckoo brings an extra clock strike. When they are 60, the clock will begin to strike 12. After that, each gift from the tree will produce you one free spin with a guaranteed win
We will remind that in every spin you can get only one symbol of the cuckoo and/or sledges in your piggy bank.
The background for the reels is a wooden fence with the house where everything is certainly ready for the Christmas celebration. You can see other houses depicted in the style of a festive cartoon. The symbols themselves look similar.
The slot deserves praise for good multipliers and light criticism for the excessive number of icons. Everything else is standard here.
