Game of the Month | December 2023

Yuletide is upon us yet again, and as we think of eggnog, cinnamon-scented candles, Christmas trees, stockings packed with gifts, and carol singers, Resorts Casino has another special Game of the Month feature for the season, selected for slot game enthusiasts. 

The Game of the Month offers players a chance to access and become familiar with new slot games on the market. Every month, Resorts Casino carefully selects one or two slot games with memorable themes and novel features – all that is required is to register to play and potentially take part in the special offers. 

Featured Slot Game

In keeping with the spirit of the season, Resorts Casino has selected Christmas-themed games that are fairly accessible and straightforward to play. These slots have plenty of bonuses and special features that deliver interesting and immersive gameplay. 

There are no requirements in regard to experience – anyone eligible to play can register and take part in these games. Much like our first featured slot, intuitive features make the experience entertaining, and the graphics create a hint of festive atmosphere.

Christmas is a rather approachable slot from game provider Everi, with a classic three-reel structure that’s reminiscent of old mechanical slots. It comes with just one payline but gives the player significant chances to win. 

The symbols are festive, with the bar appearing most often on the screen. It has been given an icy makeover for a Christmas feel, and it appears as a single, double or triple. There are also striped candy cane 7s, and Santa is the game’s wild symbol. 

The game comes with specific bet multipliers, so it is recommended that players become familiar with the potential pay table and bet amounts in order to understand how it all works before getting started. 

Three Santa wilds, for example, can result in different multipliers. If the player chooses the 1x multiplier, they can multiply their bet 500x; if they choose the 2x multiplier, they can multiply their wager 1,000x; and the 3x multiplier gives the player a chance to multiply their winnings up to 2,400x. 

This game is perfect for anyone with a penchant for classic slots. Bet amounts can be decided and adjusted with the plus and minus symbols and the bottom center of the screen. Once a wager has been set, all the player needs to do then is spin the wheel and see what appears on the screen. This can be done by clicking on the large play button on the bottom right-hand side of the game display. 

Truly reminiscent of classic mechanical slots, this game doesn’t offer a lot in terms of special features or bonus rounds. The most notable feature, and the one to keep an eye out for, is free spins – up to five free spins can be awarded at any time during the game. 

Christmas has an RTP of 93.7% and is considered a high-volatility game. It also offers a potentially hefty fixed jackpot bonus round. This can be won if the player lands three wild symbols on each of the five free respins.  

Featured Slot Game

As mentioned previously, players who are new to slots shouldn’t worry that a potential lack of experience might leave them at a disadvantage. Both of the selected games have straightforward game features. 

Although it is a little more complex than the slot game introduced above, this next slot also features wonderful festive graphics and approachable, intuitive gameplay. It also boasts plenty of interesting special features, including four unique cash spins wheels during bonus game rounds. 

Christmas Cash Spins

Ginger bread house slot game

Christmas Cash Spins was one of three games released by Inspired Gaming in 2021, and like most of the developer’s games, it has become rather popular. With a holiday-inspired soundtrack and gingerbread visuals, it manages to convey the spirit of Christmas in the form of a slot game. The game has 5×3 reels and 25 paylines. It’s a good choice for beginners with its uncomplicated gameplay and special features. 

The visuals are rather impressive and recognizably seasonal. Players are stationed on top of a snow-covered mountain and all around are cheery-looking gingerbread cottages. 

All the symbols are Christmas-themed, and the background music matches the rest of the game, without being overly repetitive or overwhelming for the player.

The minimum bet for Christmas Cash Spins is $0.25, while the maximum is $100. This makes it a game that’s adaptable for most budgets, accommodating various wager amounts. That being said, gamers are always encouraged to set a spending limit and stick to it. Ideally, they should decide on a bankroll amount before they start playing. 

After placing their wagers, players are invited to spin the wheel by pressing the play button. They should also look out for features that can help them multiply their wins. 

The game’s symbols have various values, both high- and low-paying. The Christmas tree has ornaments that include a heart, a bell and a bauble – these are all low-paying symbols. High-paying symbols include a vanilla cupcake, a red or white cupcake, a house with a blue or green door, and the game logo. 

The wild is the Christmas tree. There is only one symbol that it doesn’t substitute – the spinning wheel, which also happens to be the bonus symbol. 

The wild icon does more than substitute other symbols. It always expands to cover the entire reel, so gamers should look out for wilds that fill the second, third and fourth reels. 

Christmas Cash Spins is a slot game filled with bonuses and special features. If six bonus symbols land on the reels in a single spin, then the cash bonus feature will be triggered. Four to five bonus symbols landing to form a 2×2 square on the reels will trigger the Bonus Chance wheel. 

Triggering the cash spins bonus feature gives the player three free spins, and if they can fill the reel with bonus symbols, then different multiplier values will be awarded. 

With each respin, a bonus wheel will appear. These will vary in size – 1×1, 2×2, 3×3 and 5×3. Cash spin wheels are spun once the bonus window is completely full.

Each wheel has sections of varying multipliers. Among these, the higher-value multipliers include Mini (50x), Minor (100x), Major (250x) and Mega (1,000x). 

The gameplay is fairly intuitive and straightforward to navigate. Players increase or decrease their bet amounts using the up and down arrows on the left-hand side of the display. Once an amount has been selected, the spin button on the central right-hand side can be used. An autospin button is also available right underneath.

Game specifics, including history, gameplay instructions and symbol values, can all be found by clicking on the three-lined square button on the bottom left-hand side of the display. This can be helpful if players wish to familiarize themselves with certain details before moving further.

The game has a Return to Player (RTP) rate of 94%, which isn’t as high as some of the other slot games that are available in the casino, but it isn’t too low either.

All players are required to do in order to access these games is to create an account on the Resorts Casino website. Once personal information has been verified and the registration process is complete, players will find hundreds of slot games to choose from, including the December Game of the Month special features. 

Free demo versions are available for the majority of slots listed at Resorts Casino, including December’s featured games. This allows players to familiarize themselves with game structures and layouts before going further. Unregistered visitors to the casino’s website also have access to these demo versions.

As a special offer to celebrate December’s Game of the Month, Resorts Casino will match newly registered players’ deposits up to $1,000. So, if a player deposits $200 immediately after they sign up, the casino will give them another $200, making their total deposit $400. This can then be used for this season’s slot games and more. 

If players feel overwhelmed, Resorts Casino has a helpline that’s set up to advise them, and they can reach out at any time. The Responsible Gaming section on the website guides players on how they can make the best of their time at Resorts Casino. 

Resorts Casino is one of the oldest gambling establishments in New Jersey and everything is done with the welfare and experience of patrons in mind. The establishment advises its members to familiarize themselves the terms and conditions during the registration process and to take advantage of the various services it has to offer to ensure a safe and memorable experience. 

At Resorts Casino, registered members can take advantage of discounted entertainment, exclusive member offers, VIP promotions, multipliers and much more.
