Santa Paws is your typical North Pole themed slot, where you see creatures that are used to the cold on the reels. The Santa part isn’t really there, not like you’re used to anyway, the various animals shown on the reels instead having Santa red hats on their heads. It’s still a Christmas themed game, just one where the animal kingdom celebrates it. The game has its own list of features, quite interesting ones actually, with free spins that can multiply prizes by up to 7x, with scatters and wilds. It’s the type of game that has 20 win lines arranged on 5 reels, and which can pay up to $20,000 in the base game.
Betting and Prizes
There is nothing truly surprising about the betting system which Santa Paws chooses to use. You will find that there are 20 lines, that you can have up to 10 coins wagered for each one, and that the value of a coin will only go as high as $0.50. If you add it all up, you find out that you can spend $5 for one line, or $100 for all of them.
The best payout that you seem to be going after will be at 4,000x, which can turn into 40,000 coins, or $20,000. The chance to improve it further appears to come from the free spins, where 7x multipliers could take the jackpot to $140,000.
Santa Paws Slot Features
Santa Paws appears to be the main character in the game, the one which shows you a polar bear that seems to be Santa in this case. This is one of the two wilds in use inside, and the one to give the better payout when it forms a combo with its own symbols. You can get paid 4,000x thanks to it, but you can also use it as a substitute.
The second substitute is the one which has the Rudolph Orca image on it. Its own combo will only pay 1,000x, but it is as useful as Santa Paws when it comes to substituting for other symbols. This is the wild which you get as an extra during free spins.
The Penguin, the third symbol which does something extra, is the scatter of the slot. Use this symbol from whatever position it happens to appear in, as long as there are two or more. Payouts in cash will give back up to 100x the wager value. If you happen to land a minimum of three Penguin symbols, the rewards will consist in 12 free spins, along with multipliers that can get to 7x.
Theme & Design
There are two types of symbols inside, the poker cards with snow on them and the polar creatures, colored in white and wearing some sort of Santa hat or reindeer horns. The latter include owls, rabbits, seals, polar foxes, penguins, polar bears and an orca whale.
Santa Paws slot should be a relatively interesting title, with a couple of good features and high multipliers, but the design needed a little bit more work.
