There are some fantastic Christmas themed slots (aka Xmas themed slots) available online today and these games are all now widely available. There is no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than by playing on one of the following great games, all of which are available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. One of our favourite Christmas themed slots is a Microgaming slot called Scrooge.

This slot has 5 reels and 50 winning paylines and it is packed with plenty of special features. The highest valued symbol on the reels is the Scrooge Logo and this will award an instant 6000 coin prize when five of them land along any of the active paylines. This Wild Symbol will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Door Knocker Scatter Symbol.

After almost every other spin players get to pick a symbol to reveal either a ‘Plus One Day’ symbol or a ‘Plus One Free Spin’ symbol. Whichever one you happen to select will then be added to the Free Spin Counter or to the Countdown Calendar. Reaching 25 on the calendar will trigger the main Free Spins Bonus Round and then all wins during this bonus round will automatically be doubled. The Xmas Dinner Bonus can also be triggered during the Free Spins Bonus Round.

This mini side game will only trigger when three or more of the Door Knocker Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels. You can win up to 10,000 coins during this second screen bonus game and all you need to do is choose a meal for each hungry character, then just sit back and watch to see who wins.

This fantastic Xmas themed slot can now be found in more than 220 Microgaming powered casinos such as Betway Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino, 32Red Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Royal Vegas Casino and Roxy Palace Casino. Other top Christmas slots from Microgaming to keep an eye out for include Deck the Halls, Ho Ho Ho, Santa’s Wild Ride, Secret Santa, Jingle Bells, Santa Paws and Gift Rap.

When you get the opportunity you also need to check out the Ghosts of Christmas slot from Playtech. This one has some fantastic graphics and amazing animations with equally brilliant sound effects. The Ebenezer Scrooge Symbol is the Wild Symbol and also the highest valued symbol, the Scatter Symbol is the Ghost of Christmas Past Symbol and the Bonus Symbol is the Clock. Three or more Scatter Symbols showing up will trigger up to 15 Free Spins with a 3X Multiplier and three or more Bonus Symbols on an active payline will trigger the exciting Ghosts of Christmas Bonus.

There are actually three different bonus rounds in the Ghost of Christmas Bonus and you will be assigned one of these bonuses randomly. They are all simple picking rounds and they all guarantee some kind of coin prize. Play on this fun Xmas slot right now at Paddy Power Casino, Genting Casino, Gala Casino, William Hill Casino, bet365 Casino, Omni Casino, Mansion Casino or Casino.com.

Other top Xmas slots to keep an eye out for include Naughty or Nice (1 and 2), Santastic!, Santa Strikes Back, Return of the Rudolph, Rudolph’s Revenge and The Elf Wars (all from RTG), as well as Merry Xmas (from Play’n GO, launched in November 2014), Santa’s Surprize (from Saucify, formerly BetOnSoft), Santa’s Crackers (from Gamesys) and Christmas Reactors (from OpenBet/Electracade).

Realtime Gaming is a well-known online casino software provider which powers some of the best online casinos in the world and many of today’s best RTG powered casinos welcome US players. Realtime Gaming launches a new online slot, on average, every six to eight weeks and two of the very latest slots to have arrived in casinos included High Fashion and Voodoo Magic.

High Fashion is a progressive jackpot slot machine which has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines. In fact, there are two accumulating prizes pools to play for on this slot. The smaller of the two jackpots is called the Minor Jackpot and this one is currently worth just over $400. The larger of the two jackpots is called the Major Jackpot and this one is currently worth almost $2,900.

These jackpots are only ever randomly awarded and you have more of a chance of triggering one of these jackpots when placing larger bets per spin. This slot has a Model/Fashion/Catwalk theme with two Wild Symbols and a Scatter Symbol. One of the Wild Symbols is the Male Model and the other Wild Symbol is the Female Model. The Scatter Symbol is the Runway Symbol.

Free Spins can be triggered in two different ways. Five free spins will be awarded when three or more of the Runway Scatter Symbols show up anywhere in view, plus you will also be awarded five free spins when two of the Model Wild Symbols land in any position on reels 1 and 5 (the two outer reels). This is definitely an exciting new slot, but its girly theme may not appeal to everyone.

The other new slot, Voodoo Magic, has a creepy Voodoo/Black Magic/Horror theme with 5 reels and 13 winning paylines. Although you CANNOT play for a progressive jackpot on this slot, you can play to win up to 50,000x times your total bet. The High Priestess is the Wild Symbol and the Voodoo Doll is the Scatter Symbol.

Up to 25 free spins will be awarded when two or more Scatter Symbols appear anywhere in view. During this ‘Black Magic Free Spins Bonus Round’, your prizes can also be boosted thanks to an increasing magic multiplier. The great thing about this slot is that the free spins seem to trigger quite often.

You can now find both of these new slots from within the RTG download client at various US-friendly online casinos such as Silver Oak Casino, Palace of Chance Casino, Lucky Red Casino, Manhattan Slots, Club World Casinos, Aladdin’s Gold Casino, Slotastic, Grand Parker Casino, Slots Jungle, All Star Slots and High Noon Casino.
