The snow is falling, and in the distance you can hear carolers passing door to door, singing and spreading some holiday cheer. As you sit, tucked in tight near a roaring fire, you can feel that Christmas Spirit glowing warmly inside of you. And if you were good, at night Santa Claus will drop through the chimney and bring you your well-deserved gifts. And if you like being surprised in Christmas morning and can't wait for it, "Santa Surprise" will give you the exact same feeling of joy – spin the reels, win a huge prize and you too could feel like a child in Christmas morning.
Like other games filled with holiday cheer such as Ghosts of Christmas and Easter surprise, "Santa Surprise" features scenes of holiday joy and plays holiday music with every sound. And just as the art will pull you in, the gameplay will fill you with holiday cheer, letting you feel like a child expecting a Christmas present all over again.
"Santa Surprise" is a 5 reel, 20 line slot machine game. Like other slot machine games, the game is played using 5 spinning reels, each featuring different symbols across its face. When you click the SPIN! button, the reels spin and eventually stop, showing a random, three symbol portion at the front, forming a new 15 symbol board. If this new board includes a line of matching symbols across any of the active paylines, the player wins a prize based on the type of combination they created and set in advance for each possible matching set, multiplied by the line bet amount – with the highest prize being 10,000 times the bet!
You should note that you are betting on each of the lines individually, and that each of the lines can win or lose on its own accord, which means you can win on more than one line at the same time – or even on all of them at once! With 20 lines, each capable of winning up to 10,000 times the line bet amount, your wins can be amazing indeed!
No Christmas is complete without finding an amazing present under the tree – and unless you've been naughty, you will find one too!
Actually, you'll find more than one present – whenever you spin three or more tree symbols on any active pay-line, you win one present for each of the symbols you've spun, to take from under the tree and keep. Each present holds a prize amount based on your total bet, and when you'll win them you'll be filled with holiday cheer (even if you're playing in the middle of august!).
Another gift ol' Saint Nick can grant you is free spins. To win these free spins, all you need to do is spin the reels and have three house symbols appear anywhere on the board. When that happens, Santa sneaks in through the chimney and grants you 10 free spins, based on your line bet and the amount of active lines you had when you won them. To make sure they are unforgettable, all free spin wins are multiplied by three, making for a great Christmas miracle!
Even more miraculous – play on with our other free spins games. Visit our free spins page and find out how to claim your free spin bonus!
On each spin, you may try to double all wins (up to a limit of 1,000$). Whenever you win, the GAMBLE button will light up, and clicking it will allow you to bet against the house and double your win. Each round you are betting on the nature of the next card drawn from a pile – will it be a red card, or a black one? The odds are 50%-50%, and the gamble option allows you to turn small wins into huge ones, so don't skip it!

Tips from the pros
Playing "Santa Surprise" might seem easy, but it has a few subtleties that you should note. First, all free spins and all tree bonus wins are based on your existing bet, so the more you bet the higher prizes these bonuses will yield – so make sure to bet high.
Also, the gamble option is great, and you should use it to turn small wins into big ones – but don't push your luck too much, and make sure to change sides between wins as color cards are drawn and the odds of drawing the same color card are lowered after a win.
