Slot Overview

Push Gaming has been on a winning streak since years ago with so many remarkable slots. With its recent addition of Giga Jar (read our review here!), 10 Swords and Dino P.D. to their series, it seems like it’s a never ending cycle of excitement. Not only that, do anticipate their new release of Crystal Catcher and Razor Returns when it releases in! These games have not only gained popularity among players but also made a splash in the casino streaming community. Push Gaming stands out as an intelligent and perceptive company, staying in touch with players' preferences and delivering engaging games they genuinely love. With an increase in potential and variance, Push Gaming has managed to capture attention, showcasing finesse, sophistication, and a diverse range of slots.

Fat Santa, Push Gaming's November 2018 release, follows in the footsteps of the successful Fat Rabbit. While Fat Rabbit featured a lush green landscape and carrots, Fat Santa set the stage with a snowy backdrop and pies as the coveted treats. Similar to its predecessor, Fat Santa is a medium variance game where the bonus feature takes center stage, although it can be challenging to trigger. However, once Santa gets his hands on the pie, players can expect an intense and feature-packed experience brimming with enormous potential!

Fat Santa boasts a 5-reel, 5-row layout with 50 pay lines. It is designed to be playable on all devices, allowing players to wager between $0.25 and $50 per spin. The game shares similarities with Fat Rabbit in terms of symbol values, pay lines, reel set, and an attractive return to player (RTP) rate of 96.45%.

Slot Feature

In terms of the paytable, Fat Santa closely resembles its predecessor, Fat Rabbit, with the exception of the characters themselves. The wooden card suit symbols are now replaced with Christmas ornaments, while the premium symbols feature Snowmen, reindeers, Christmas elves, and, of course, Santas. Among them, the Santa symbol reigns supreme, offering a generous payout of 20 times the stake for landing five across a full payline.

Sleigh Feature

To add an extra dash of excitement to the main game, Fat Santa introduces the Sleigh feature, which can randomly activate during spins. Watch as Santa dashes across the screen with his flying reindeer, tossing wild symbols onto the reels. While the Sleigh feature rarely leads to significant wins, it's a delightful surprise that keeps the gameplay merry and dynamic.

Wild Symbols

Like many other slots, Fat Santa features a Wild symbol represented by the jolly Fat Santa himself. This Wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols on the reels. Additionally, there are two more forms of Wild symbols in the game: the Christmas Pie symbol and the Wild Christmas Pie symbol. These symbols also substitute for all others, except for the Fat Santa symbol, creating more opportunities for winning combinations.

Free Spins

Fat Santa introduces a popular feature known as Buy-A-Bonus, which allows players to directly access the free spins feature by paying 80 times the stake. While this feature has been around for a while, it was popularized by Big Time Gaming and has become a trend in the industry. However, players can also trigger the free spins game in the conventional way by landing a Santa symbol along with one or more Wild Christmas Pie symbols.

Starting with 5 free spins, the objective in the free spins round is for Santa to find and devour as many pies as possible. With every group of 5 pie wilds collected, the Santa wild symbol grows in size. Initially a 1x1 symbol, Santa can expand up to a massive 5x5, covering the entire reel set. Each increase in size not only brings more chances to win but also awards additional free spins, making the feature even more rewarding and full of holiday cheer.

If you want to be healthy and happy in the new year, you should eat one of m____ p__ every day for the 12 days of Christmas!

Slot Verdict

While triggering the bonus feature in Fat Rabbit could be a challenge, the addition of the Buy-A-Bonus option in Fat Santa brings a new level of accessibility and excitement. Initially, we anticipated Fat Santa to be more volatile than its sibling due to the lower maximum bet, but it turns out to be slightly less volatile. The potential for massive wins lies within the bonus round, especially when you activate the impressive 5x5 Santa Wild symbol. Although we had hoped for something more original, the inclusion of the Buy-A-Bonus feature sets Fat Santa apart from being a mere clone and guarantees its popularity among players.
