Hit software provider’s latest Christmas-themed release prepares to get players in the holiday spirit with a plethora of prize-packed presents and a ho ho hold-and-win feature
The festive period is almost upon us and that can only mean one thing; popular software provider Swintt’s Premium slot line-up is getting ready to give players an extra dose of holiday cheer with the addition of a brand-new Christmas-themed release in Santa’s Pots and Pearls.
Being the latest title in the studio’s popular SwinttPremium line-up, Santa’s Pots and Pearls features classic sounds and symbols players will recognise from traditional land-based slots, only this time the icons come with a festive twist as candles, mistletoe, bells and jolly St Nick all add to the atmosphere.
Alongside those high-value Christmas star, players will also find a trio of special icons including fox wilds, presents and pearls. The former will substitute for any regular icon and expand to fill its reel if a winning payline is present while the latter pair can be used to trigger the slot’s two features.
Starting with the present scatter, these sought-after symbols appear only on reels one, three and five, and when three arrive at once, players will get to unbox an instant-win gift with prizes on offer including 30x, 50x and 100x multipliers of the current stake.
Next up, Swintt’s popular Pots and Pearls feature also makes a welcome return. Activated whenever six or more pearl symbols appear anywhere in view, players will be transported to a new set of reels and given an initial three free spins as they bid to win further prizes or one of four big local jackpots.
As players spin, the number of spins will tick down by one unless a new pearl symbol appears on the reels, at which point it will remain locked in place as the counter is reset. This process will continue until either all 15 spaces have been filled or no new pearls are present, at which point the value of all visible symbols are added together and awarded as a prize as players are returned to the main game.
During the Pots and Pearls feature, players may also encounter symbols containing the words ‘Minor’, ‘Major’, ‘Maxi’ and ‘Mega’; and should they successfully collect three pearls displaying the same value, they’ll instantly be awarded the corresponding jackpot prize.
Being a Premium release, any wins collected during the base game can also be gambled in an optional risk feature. Here, players will be offered the opportunity to double the value of their current prize by guessing the colour of a hidden playing card, with the feature only ending if an incorrect pick is made.
“With Christmas being just around the corner, this month Swintt is inviting players to unwrap a thrilling feast of festive features in Santa’s Pots and Pearls, the latest holiday-themed addition to our hugely popular collection of SwinttPremium games,” the Chief Executive Officer for Swintt, David Mann, said. “Boasting expanding wilds, mystery prizes of up to 100x and the return of our fan favourite Pots and Pearls mechanic, the slot offers multiple ways for players to get their hands on a little pre-Christmas bonus and we’re sure it’s going to prove the perfect winter warmer when it goes live later this month.”
