Fat Santa is a 5 reel and 50 payline video slot. The 50 paylines means that there are plenty of opportunities for players to create winning lines and adds excitement to proceedings. The wagering range for Fat Santa is between $0.25 and $25. While this does allow low budget players the chance to play the game it may put off higher budget players due to the low maximum wager. The maximum payout for Fat Santa is up to 1000 times your stake which is a relatively good payout, although the low maximum wager does limit it slightly. The RTP is also slightly above average at 96.45%.

Fat Santa Slot Theme and Background

Jingle Bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way… The visuals for Fat Santa are just what you would expect. Each symbol is based around the Christmas theme of the game with ornaments and elves adorning the reels at regular intervals. The cartoon style helps to keep the theme of the game consistent. The sounds for the game all stick to the Christmas theme which really helps players immerse in the game even more.

The background is fantastic, showing Santa’s house in the North Pole all covered in snow. There is plenty of depth to the wintry scene that has been created and it really works together with the visuals and sounds to create an aesthetic that ensures that the only thing in player’s minds is Christmas!

Fat Santa Gameplay

The gameplay for Fat Santa is very similar to a previous Push Gaming release, Fat Rabbit. It utilizes a traditional video slot game with wild symbols, scatter symbols and free spins but also adds in an extra feature that can be triggered at random in order to increase engagement during the base game.

Santa’s Sleigh

During the base game, Santa’s sleigh can be randomly triggered. While there is no specific way to know when he will appear it’s always a pleasure to see Santa because he brings a gift of wild symbols to be added to the reels. This allows for extra winning lines to be created which can help to turn a losing spin into a winning one instantly.

Free Spins

There are two ways to trigger the free spins feature in Fat Santa. The first way is to buy the feature. This costs 80 times your stake and will instantly take you into the free spins mode. The second way is the more traditional way of triggering it via the in-game symbols. In Fat Santa, this means landing a Santa symbol as well as 1 or more mince pies on the reels at the same time.

When the free spins feature is triggered it will give 5 free spins to start. There will also be a 1 x 1 Santa wild symbol that will land on the reels. Every time you manage to collect 5 mince pie symbols the Santa wild will grow in size up to a maximum size of 5 x 5, which fills the reels. Each time you increase the size of Santa you will earn more free spins. If you manage to land the 5 x 5 Santa on the reels this will pay out the maximum payout of 1000 times your stake.

Fat Santa Payouts and Wagering Limits

The maximum wager for Fat Santa is up to $25. This is a lot lower than other games on the market and could cause higher rolling players to be unwilling to engage with Fat Santa. The minimum wager of $0.25 allows low budget players the opportunity to play the game to a level that they feel comfortable with.

The maximum payout for Fat Santa is up to 1000 times your stake. This is quite a generous payout although even when playing on a maximum wager game it will still only give a payout of $25,000. The RTP of 96.45% is slightly above the market average which will encourage players to engage with Fat Santa.

Fat Santa Final Verdict

The fantastic cartoon styled visuals are perfect for Fat Santa. They ensure that the theme of the game is adhered to consistently and makes the game one that pops out at you from the moment you start playing. The cartoon style is easy on the eye and while it isn’t aesthetically impressive like some other games out there it does fit the game well.

Fat Santa is a medium volatility game that sometimes feels like a high volatility game. The addition of the sleigh feature seems to be there to alleviate this feeling and engage players a little more. The free spins feature is an enjoyable one with the increasing size of Santa increasing the size of the wins at the same time, it can also be paid for to trigger instantly which is a welcome addition. Fat Santa is a game with potential but it does need a few extra features to really make it a must play game.
