Jingle Jackpot Slots - Review and Free Spins

Tim Crump in Slots 11 Dec 2016
  • Jingle Jackpot from Novomatic has endless features and a progressive jackpot
  • Enjoy nudges, stacked wilds and much, much more
Progressive jackpots aren't just for Xmas!

No self-respecting slot manufacturer can go about their business without a decent festive-themed game that’s been designed and built as a standalone development in its own right rather than a hastily-produced attempt to jump onto the Yuletide bandwagon. 

Thankfully Jingle Jackpot slots measures up well against the rest of its peer group from Novomatic, sporting some heart-warming Christmas symbolism that’s clearly had plenty of time and effort put into it, and a generous dollop of the well-balanced, contemporary game play that the world-famous land gaming specialist is famous for. 

Visuals and Sound

The reels are set against a tongue and groove-style wooden wall with presents stuck to the wall and what looks like a fake wreath above. We loved this approach. Instead of going for a classical approach with wrought iron fireplaces, real log fires and other concepts that are out of reach to most average families, this is the kind of Christmas environment that real people get to experience – and it’s all the more convincing for it. 

1,600 times stake from standard line win

Admittedly this can only be taken so far: Making a Christmas-themed slot that features families at war over the TV schedule and throwing a tantrum because they didn’t get a Playstation 4 is outside the remit of anything Novomatic are ever likely to do, but even just a touch of reality is welcome in a genre that’s produced some pretty outlandish ideas even by online slots standards.

However, it’s the soundtrack that really caught our imagination. Base game play features a lavish, Disney-style orchestral arrangement, and we unable to figure out many bars long it was as features kept kicking in before it player all the way through – a good sign by anyone’s standards. 

Our favourite interruption to the main theme was the string quartet that played We Wish you a Merry Xmas before seguing back after a round of applause for the lucky player, though Novomatic’s musical team clearly hasn’t gone overboard on the hadn’t gone entirely overboard on the festive spirit when they wrote the score for this game as there are some classic, digital pub fruit effects used as well, when large wins are totted up.

Like many Novomatic slots this one comes with 5 reels and 10 paylines, though there’s more to this game than the majority of its contemporaries. 

Firstly there’s the option to pay a little more to activate extra features in the form of wild multipliers that can be worth up to 10 times. They appear in stacked form and boost winning lines by 2,4,6,8 or 10 times. You’ll need to pay £1 a spin instead of the standard 40p to activate the double, or £4 a spin for the 10 times multiplier. 

We’d highly recommend going for the 10 times option as any games that let you pay up-front for extra feature shave a tendency to reward those that take it. 
This isn’t the only non-standard idea used in this game, either: There’s a whole host of ideas that deviate hugely from the usual scatter/wild options you find on other games, and they’re generated when you spin the Christmas Cracker Bonus which awards one of four special extras:

  1. The Rewind feature this nudges 1 or more reels up to create a winning combination. We love seeing nudges on online slots and think that there aren’t enough of them around. 
  2. The Fast Forward feature is also a nudge facility, but in this case the nudge moves down rather than up
  3. The Domino feature lets one symbol float across the reels, transforming any symbol it lands on into a matching symbol. You’re guaranteed to land a winner from the Domino
  4. Finally the All Symbols Pays Scatter lets you score winning lines scatter-style rather than on any of your 10 paylines

If all of this represents an impressive sackful of ideas, then wait until you see what’s hiding under the tree: The gift that’s too big for Santa to bring down the chimney comes in the form of a progressive jackpot. On top of everything else that’s on offer here you can actually win a life-changing amount of cash on Jingle Jackpot – which is the icing on the Christmas cake for this abnormally feature-laden festive treat.

Our Verdict

Novomatic are known for simple but highly effective games, and though this one bucks the trend by being a complex strategic challenge it’s still a regular pulse-raiser.
