5 Winter Slots to Play for Christmas

The winter holidays are coming fast. We have survived Halloween thanks to the many horror slots we got to play, and we’ll live through Thanksgiving (if you happen to live in North America). Now it’s time for the most wonderful time of the year. Between decorating the tree and wrapping the presents, find a bit of time to head over to your favorite casino online to try these winter slot machines.

Santa vs Rudolf (NetEnt)

Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer… has a beef with his boss, Santa Claus. There’s no telling what’s the reason for it but the fact remains: the two are not on the best terms in the Santa vs Rudolf slot machine.

The game is a pretty standard five-reel slot with a fun theme – what sets it apart is that its win lines pay both ways, and it has sticky wandering wilds – one for Santa, one for Rudolf. And when the two Wilds meet, they trigger a set of very generous Free Spins with sticky wild respins and special bonus spins at the end.

Ice Joker (Play’n GO)

Ice Joker is a game loosely inspired by the character of the Snow Queen from the tales of Hans Christian Andersen. But the resemblance is skin deep only: this frozen beauty doesn’t take away (your feelings) but gives (wins and bonuses).

Ice Joker is, at its base, a fruit machine, with frozen fruit scattered all over its reels. It comes with goodies like expanding wilds with free respins, free spins with big wins, and all the frozen produce you can carry.

Winterberries (Yggdrasil Gaming)

Yggdrasil is well-known for its high-quality games – and Winterberries is not an exception. Except, here the fruit is not frozen – until it wins, that is.


Three or more berries of the same kind are flash-frozen in place when they land on the screen while the reels keep turning further – free. They continue to spin as long as more of the same berries continue landing (and being flash-frozen) on the screen. To make things cooler (pun intended), each complete column of frozen fruit increases the multiplier applied to the win.

Winterberries is a fast-paced, colorful slot machine that you’ll likely enjoy.

Christmas Carol Megaways (Pragmatic Play)

‘Twas the night before Christmas when a heartless old businessman wouldn’t let a young apprentice spend the evening with his family. To change his heart, his (dead) partner sends him three Spirits to show him Christmas Past, Present, and Future. The story may sound familiar – it served as an inspiration for Pragmatic Play’s Christmas Carol Megaways slot machine.

Christmas Carol Megaways is a beautiful and atmospheric slot machine with many spirits and even more winning opportunities on the reels. It comes with the popular Megaways mechanic – its reels have an ever-changing number of symbols (and potential winning combinations), and this, coupled with its high volatility, makes it a great slot machine if you are out to win a lot. But make no mistake: like Scrooge, this game is pretty avaricious (as in it has high volatility).

Holiday Spirits (Play’n GO)

Finally, here’s another title inspired by Scrooge’s misadventures with the Spirits of Christmas, this time from Play’n GO. This time, in turn, the game is more basic – it has just three reels and five win lines. What it lacks in symbols makes up in special features, though.

The game comes with free spins for each of the Christmas spirits, stacked wilds, random multipliers, and with them comes a big pile of Christmas wins. Beware, though – this game, too, has a high volatility.
