Jingle Jingle from Booming Games: Slot Review - a gift of a slot!
The lead up to Christmas is in full swing now and what better way to indulge in some festive fun than by playing a Christmas-themed online slot? This latest slot release from software studio Booming Games is all about celebrating the Christmas holidays. So when you play this slot expect to see good old Saint Nick drop by, plenty of lights and decorations, mistletoe, and of course presents galore! Let’s see if this slot is worth unwrapping under the Christmas tree and we really hope that it’s not another pair of socks!
Jingle Jingle is a 5 reel slot game with 30 paylines and it includes Free Spins, Permanent 2 Way Pay, Wild Multipliers, and Stacked Wilds.
The first feature to mention is that the game features a Perma 2-Way Pay system. This basically means that matching symbols on paylines pay out not only from left to right but also from right to left. This greatly boosts your chances of landing a nice payout when you play this game.
The Wild symbol in this game is represented by an image of a smiling Santa Claus. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter symbol to help form winning combinations. A neat feature of this symbol is that it appears stacked on the reels in sets of three and can appear partially or completely on any reel as you play the game. Not only does this symbol come stacked but if you manage to land a winning combination involving 3 or more Wild symbols then your win is subject to a wonderful 3X multiplier!
The Scatter symbol is illustrated by the game logo and if you manage to land 3 or more Scatter symbols on the reels then you’ll trigger the Free Spins feature. During this feature, you will be awarded 10 Free Spins and in addition to this, all Free Spins wins are multiplied by 3! Manage to land 3 more Scatter symbols during Free Spins and you’ll be nicely rewarded with 10 additional Free Spins.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The presentation of the game is absolutely fantastic as the game is set against a midnight sky in a sleepy little town that is covered with a stylish purple hue. The reels of the slot are covered in Christmas decorations full of mistletoe, baubles and ribbons. It really helps bring the Christmas Spirit into full swing! Symbols consist of some Little Girls who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Santa, a few Christmas Decorations, Snowflakes, Stars, and Presents. The animations are visually stunning as symbols dart up and down the reels and burst into life in spectacular fashion when you form a win.
The music is full of cheery Christmas jingles, most notably the eponymous “Jingle Bells” tune. It complements the festive theme of the game perfectly.
