Upon loading the game, you will gaze at the spectacular Christmas tale. The reels are full of festive symbols with a lot of decoration on them. The spirit also sets the background of the playing window – the trees and everything around is covered with snow. Santa’s sleigh is rushing across the moon seen from a distance under the purple night starry sky. The game menu is in lime green, which is the developer’s colour.
On the reels, you will see picturesque symbols of Santa, a Christmas tree decoration – the wild. There are ginger cookies as the card royals, a snowman, reindeers and elves. The picture and card symbols look like taken from a Christmas animated film. They set the festive mood. The free spins take place inside a house by the fireplace with piles of presents on top of each other on the left. The graphics of Mystical Santa Megaways are festive, attractive and set festive Christmas mood.
As a Christmas-themed game, the spirit is reflected in the graphics. Here even the card symbols have it, being decorated as ginger cookies each one. Besides the low-value 9 to A cards, there are premium symbols. These are elves, snowmen, Rudolph and Santa. Santa is the top-rewarding symbol with 2, 3, 4, 5 and 5 on adjacent reels paying 2, 5, 10, 25 and 50 times your stake. The scatter is the Christmas tree on the purple background.
Two kinds of wilds will enhance your play and payouts. The bauble is a standard wild with its usual substituting role. The other one also plays the role of any missing symbol except the scatter. But more importantly, it applies a multiplier to your wins. You can get an x2, x3, x5 or x10 boost of your payouts with it. If you land more than one of the multiplier wild on the screen, they will multiply their value together and give you much more. This is the Multiplier Wild Symbols feature in the game.
As in any other Megaways slot, you will win when 2 or more identical symbols land on nearby positions starting from reel 1. The more symbols the better payout you will score. When you get a win, the paying symbols are removed from the screen and trigger a cascade. New ones fall from above taking their places. This has the potential to give you generous cash rewards for the price of one paid spin. The meter on the top left side of the screen displays the number of active win ways for each spin.
During any point in the game, you can have an elf appearing and leaving gift boxes on the reels. They will open to uncover one of the following 4 Elf Bonuses:
Once you succeed to land 4 or more of the Christmas tree scatters, you will get access to the Free Spins feature. As a start, you will receive 12 free spins for 4 scatters. You get 5 more free rounds for each extra triggering scatter you got.
During these rounds, the elf can appear so, any of the 4 Elf Bonuses are active for grabs. Moreover, during free spins, you will benefit from a win multiplier. It starts at x1 and the elf can increase it by 1 per spin. You can re-trigger the free spins feature by landing 3 or 4 scatters and win 5 or 10 extra free spins, respectively.
The slot is nice and offers some typical features without being anything unique. Still, it lights the winter festive mood and the spirit of Christmas with its picturesque graphics. Mystical Santa Megaways has medium variance. It is suitable for all kinds of players with its win potential of 9,720x stake.
