When it gets to that time of year, there is nothing better than staying indoors and keeping cosy. Lucky for you, we have some great slots should you need some entertainment during those cold months. That being said, you don’t need to get wrapped up for this frosty selection of slots that can be enjoyed year-round. So, in no particular order (we can't pick favourites), here are the top 5 winter-themed slots available at Bucky Bingo.
The Xmas Cash slot is a fun-filled, festive game created by developers Eyecon. Entirely Christmas themed, this is a compact 3x3 slot with a modest 9 paylines and an RTP of 90%. Featuring symbols like snowflakes, snowmen and stockings; Christmas trees and puddings, not to mention Santa and his reindeer, you will be well and truly in the Christmas spirit with this slot.
The visuals for this game are as bright and merry as they come, with greens and golds, as well as the red and white of Santa’s iconic outfit. Although the graphics are quite plain and cartoony, this adds to its simplistic charm. One of the best parts about this game is that it is so easy to play: it has simple sliders for adjusting the value of your bet and with just 3 rows and 3 reels, it won’t take a Christmas miracle for you to get to grips with this Santa-stic slot.
Another one for the holiday season—in case you hadn't already cracked that case—the Very Merry Christmas slot is the second foray into the festivities from Eyecon and is just as accessible as Xmas Cash, only with more chances to win. With 3 rows across 5 reels, 25 paylines and an RTP of 95%, this slot can be played from just 25p and offers free spins as well as a top prize of up to 100x times the value of your bet.
This feels like a much more detailed slot than it's other Christmas counterparts, as not only are there more reels and better graphics, but there are simply more eye-catching symbols for you to enjoy. From presents, snow globes and teddy bears, to a variety of other Christmas toys, there is truly a gift for everyone in this game.
This snow-capped slot is from Ash Gaming, but has all the finish and finesse of any other high-profile gaming product. The ice blue and sparkling white colour palette of the Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot is absolutely striking to look at and has some highly exciting gameplay. It features 20 paylines across 5 reels and 3 rows, as well as plenty of free spins and other bonuses to be enjoyed.
Featuring animal symbols such as penguins and polar bears, walruses, artic foxes and even a moose, there is a clear art style throughout all of the illustrations and even the standard card symbols—Jack to Ace—are as bold as bracing as the winter winds. It has an RTP of 96% and you can spin from just 20p, so get your skis and snow boots at the ready for this action-packed party amongst the peaks.
A more spiritual slot thrown in the mix here: Shaman Spirit is another one set amongst the mountains and with an equally distinctive style. Even the font of the standard card symbols alone, 9 to Ace, stands out and there is cleanness to not only the visuals but the interface as well. All of the buttons and animations have the smoothness you would expect from an Eyecon slot, but there is a slickness to the game’s overall finish that makes it feels extra polished.
The Native American inspiration is driven home by the various spirit animals and tribal characters, such as the chieftain and his feathered headdress, but one of the standout aspects is the ethereal audio. Whilst it doesn’t have a constant soundtrack as such, the pan flute and pipe filled score that plays every time you win, is some of the most original music you’ll find in any slot out there. With 5 reels, 25 paylines and an RTP of 95.4%, this slot is sure to send chills down your spine in more way than one. It really is one of the best winter-themed slots out there.
Last but not least, we have the Snow Queen's Magic slot from Playtech which is truly magical by name and nature. Whilst it consists of the standard 3 rows across 5 reels and may have a touch lower RTP of 93%, it offers 9 paylines, a hugely exciting progressive jackpot feature and spins from as little as 10p.
Again, although the interface and overall graphics may not look the most modern, the overall feel of this slot certainly won’t leave you feeling cold. The symbols are charming and simplistic: the same goes for the gameplay mechanics as well. With unicorns, crystal balls, wizards and the Snow Queen herself, this slot feels like something from a fairytale.
