Jingle Spin is a fun new pokie game from the team at NetEnt. Although the game does have a Christmas theme, it holds its own all year round as an enjoyable and engaging pokie. It doesn't have an overwhelming festive feel, so you don't need to abandon it once January hits. It's got some great special features that are quite unlike anything else out there at the moment. Some players might find it a little frustrating at first, as the special features can sometimes take a while to hit, but huge wins are possible if you get lucky. Read on to find out all about this original and innovative pokie. Read our full review below.
If you love NetEnt pokies, you're sure to enjoy this brilliant new game. You might also like to check out egg-o-matic pokies. This classic pokie game employs a similar feature, with the bonus symbols being placed over the top of the reels and dropping down into the game when certain symbols land.
Jingle Spin Design
You'll notice when you launch the game that there are two slightly unusual details. One is the large wooden wheel alongside the reels. It's being manned by Santa Claus, and you'll notice it turns with each spin once you start playing the game. You can find out all about this special wheel further on, but this makes up the first special feature of the game. The other thing you might notice is the elves sitting above the reels. There is one elf sitting atop each of the five reels.
How to Play Jingle Spin
While this game might look a little confusing when you first play it, you'll soon realise it really isn't. Although it is different to most other pokies, you will actually play it in exactly the same way as any other game. This is a fixed payline game, so you don't have to worry about choosing how many or which lines to bet on. There are 20 fixed paylines, and you will be betting on all 20 of these with every single spin. This gives you 20 chances to land a winning combo with every spin of the reels. You'll actually have more than 20 chances to win, due to one of the game's special features - more on this shortly.
Jingle Spin Special Features
As mentioned earlier, there are some fun special features in this game. You will already have noticed the large wooden wheel that Santa Claus turns ever time you spin the reels. The wheel has holes around its perimeter, and some of these holes are empty while others hold special symbols. These special symbols display things like cash amounts, free spins and special wilds among others. Every time you spin the reels, Santa turns the wooden wheel. A large ornate arrow indicates where the wheel stops. If the wheel stops with an empty hole under the arrow, nothing happens. You win your standard payout from any winning combos you've landed on the reels, and take your next spin as usual. If, however, the wheel lands with one of the symbols of the wheel under the arrow, that symbol then transfers to the reels. Remember the cheerful little elves sitting on top of the five reels? This is where they come in. Each time the wheel lands on a symbol, whatever it may be, that symbol shoots up to the elf on the right-most reel - reel 5. This elf then holds the symbol for the next spin. With each spin, all the elves pass along the symbol they are holding - if any - to the elf to their right. Once the symbol reaches the elf over reel 1, it is thrown off the screen.
You're probably wondering what the point of these special symbols being tossed around by the elves are. Well, this is where another of the game's special features comes in. You'll notice that as well as the regular game symbols, there are also wilds. These wilds take the form of large gold gifts, tied with red ribbon. These act in the same way as normal wilds, substituting for all regular game symbols to give you more chances to build winning combos. But that's not all - they also collect the special symbols held by the elves. If one of these wilds lands in the reel below an elf holding a symbol, it not only acts as a regular wild, it also collects the symbol from the elf directly above.
These special symbols come in various forms. The yellow symbols displaying a number award you this number in cash. While most of these symbols are for fairly low amounts, you will notice some higher numbers that award you generous instant payouts if you're lucky enough to first get one up on the reels and then to land a wild gift box underneath it. As well as the instant payout symbols, you'll notice green symbols with a number displayed in a circle with arrows. These are the free spins symbols. You can win different numbers of free spins, and these are awarded in exactly the same way as the instant payout prizes. Finally, as well as the free spins and instant payouts, there are also some other fun special symbols. You'll come across special expanding wilds that fill an entire section of the reels, giving you the potential to win huge cash prizes. There are also mystery symbols that award a random prize when they are triggered.
Jingle Spin Free Spins
As mentioned previously, the free spins feature is triggered by landing a gift box wild directly underneath an elf holding a free spins symbol. The symbol will drop down into the gift box and your free spins will begin. When it comes to free spins pokies, fans are certainly in for a treat with this particular game. Free spins can be retriggered and are awarded in the free session in exactly the same ways as they are in the base game - by a relevant free spins symbol dropping into a wild gift box directly below.
