Relax Gaming has released a festive new video slot titled Santa’s Stack.
The brand new game follows Santa Claus as he travels around the world to deliver presents and collect riches. The game uses an 8×8 layout with a Cluster Pays mechanic, and it has an RTP of 96.27%.
Santa’s Stack has high variance, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over frequent small ones, and it requires a bet of between £0.10 and £50. The pixel-based symbols in the game include elves, Santa Clause himself, Mrs Clause, Rudolph, and red, green, and blue lightbulbs.
The game comes with several notable special features. There’s the Secret Santa feature, which is triggered when a Wild symbol forms a winning cluster of five or more symbols. When triggered, the winning cluster will transform into Mystery symbols and a respin is awarded with the Mystery symbols held in place.
Whenever a win occurs adjacent to the Mystery symbols, the new cluster also transforms into Mystery symbols and awards another respin. This continues until no new winning clusters are formed, ending the respins and revealing the Mystery symbols.
The game also has a Free Spins mode, which is triggered by landing three or more Bonus symbols on the reels. When triggered, you earn five free spins, and for every additional Bonus symbol you land, you earn another spin. The Secret Santa feature is active during the Free Spins mode and Wild symbols are guaranteed to land at the start of each spin.
The number of Wild symbols guaranteed to land increases by one every spin, starting with one Wild symbol in the first spin. Landing Bonus symbols during the feature can award either an additional spin, a multiplier or a spin with a multiplier. Finally, the game allows you to purchase the Free Spins mode for 100x your bet.
Simon Hammon, the Chief Product Officer at Relax Gaming, said in a statement to EuropeanGaming: “It’s always a pleasure to design innovative games but there is definitely something extra in knowing we are bringing some Christmas cheer to people’s entertainment time as well.
“Set against an engaging retro-style winter wonderland backdrop, Santa’s Stack will be the gift that keeps on giving as we continue to drive differentiation this holiday season!”
The news comes after Relax Gaming launched its Cluster Tumble slot earlier this month. It also comes as the studio continues to enhance its aggregation platform by partnering with developers like Booming Games and Spinmatic.
Meanwhile, Relax Gaming has been striking partnerships with various operators to expand its worldwide reach. Partnerships have been struck with NetBet, Holland Casino in the Netherlands, William Hill in the UK, Casino Room, LeoVegas, PokerStars, and more.
