HOW TO PLAY SANTA EXPRESS
Now, as soon as you start the game, you will be welcomed by a cosy-looking game. In the background, you will see a spindly-looking bridge spanning the screen from one side to the other, while snow-covered houses and snow-covered trees make up the foreground. There are also snow-covered hills, as well. Although you are transported somewhere cold, Stakelogic managed to create an atmosphere that gives you a feeling of staying indoors next to a roaring fire, while spinning the reels.
When it comes to the betting range, Santa Express lets you pick out bets between €0.20 to €100. However, you also have the option to activate the Super Stake feature. Doing so will double your bet and double the chance of triggering free spins. Whether you opt to activate the feature or not, Santa Express remains highly volatile. Like most Stakelogic slots, this one is available in several RTP versions, as well. If you wish to play the most generous one, go for the 96.17% which is the max setting.
Now, on to the symbols. The action plays out on a 5×4 game grid with 20 paylines. There are ten Christmas-related symbols, with three to five matching ones necessary for the win. On the lower end of the paytable are the standard 10-A card rank symbols, offering up to 1x the bet. They are followed by baubles, gingerbread men, hot drinks, elves, and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer as the premiums. Five matching premiums offer payouts of up to 10x the stake. Santa Express also comes with a wild that substitutes any pay symbol and offers up to 20x the bet. However, they only appear from the Collapsing Wild Symbols feature, which we will cover next in our Santa Express review.
