Jingle Bells Power Reels Review
The Jingle bells' power reels slot is the second version of the Red Tiger's Christmas-themed casino games. The game came up just after the smash hit of the first game produced by Red Tiger. Both the first and the second games were Christmas-themed and have been a blockbuster since production.
As stated earlier, the Jingle bells Power Reels Slot features a Christmas theme with a massive grid of 8×6 pattern. In this game, Santa has more exciting gifts to offer players than the first edition of the Red Tiger productions. Generally, the game has proven what it stands for – rewarding players with Christmas gifts.
Since the first version of the Jingle bells Reels Slot, there have been updates on its bonus features. The first noticeable update is its expanded grid to an 8 by 6 grid. This expansion gives players the capacity to win more.
The pick bonus game which leads you to the Santa's grotto through the snowy path has been removed. Likewise, the pick bonus you get during free spin rounds has also been removed. Instead, you get free spins according to the number of scatters that strikes the reel in the base game.
However, the reel modifiers remain the same as the first edition of the game.
Scatters are full of gifts from Santa and even bring more Christmas charm to this new online slot. The free spin rounds are initiated by getting three snow globe scatters, and four special reel modifiers will also be awarded.
The Santa himself presents wilds as wrapped gifts, and they represent all paying symbols. They can come as 1 x 1 wild, 2 x 2 wilds, and even 3 x 3 mega wilds.
The Santa's gifts, also known as the random reel modifiers, are available during the main game and even during the free spin rounds, and they come in various ways as follows;
- Raining wilds: this wild is specially wrapped in a sprinkled gift box and guarantees you a win.
- Mega wild: the Santa also positions a 5 x 6 mega wild on the reels for you and guarantees a win.
- Winning Reels: the Santa helps you turn regular reels into glowing magic reels with only high-paying symbols emerging.
- Christmas Tree Multiplier: the Santa shakes the Christmas tree, and a random win multiplier falls off and applies to your next win.
Free spins are triggered by the snow globe scatter symbols and can award up to 20 free spins. You can also win some of Santa's gifts and exciting random reel modifiers. Although Santa can come into your game at any time, he will offer more gifts during these free spin rounds.
This means that you'll win more during the free spins round than in the main game.
Both the first and the second version of this online casino game do not offer any form of a jackpot. However, the maximum winning has been increased to 6000x of your stake.
Volatility and RTP
The live casino game is highly volatile compared to the previous version's average volatility, which implies more wins for players. There is a dip in its RTP from 96.18% in the previous version to 95.78%. This dip will significantly affect players from around the world.
