Progressive Jackpot: No
Take a trip to the North Pole and explore Santa’s Christmas village in this whimsical five-reel slot game from Spinomenal. Called Santa’s Wild Helpers, this game takes Santa and all of the characters you will find with him in the North Pole, and places them in a wacky slot machine. The game is undeniably Christmas with its thick snow covered streets, festively decorated homes, and Christmas symbols on the reels.
The game may seem overwhelming at first with all the bright colors, décor, and lights all around. Once you get used to all the busyness on the screen, you will find that the game is not only fun but also rather easy to navigate. Start with changing your bet by clicking on the plus and minus symbols on the Per Line field found on the lower left of the screen. Lowest total bet is .25 and highest total bet is 250.
To spin the reels, click on the Play button to the right of the control panel. It’s the round candy-cane colored circle there. If you want to play hands-free, click on Auto Play. To speed up the spinning of the reels, Fast Play should also be clicked. Want to find out more about the game’s symbols, paytables, and special rounds?

This game has wacky but very Christmassy symbols on the reels. These include high-paying, low-paying, and even the special symbols of the game. High-paying symbols include a smiling elf, a Christmas stocking, Christmas bells, a Christmas tree, and a decorated house. Low-paying symbols are all gingerbread cookies, with one shaped like a Christmas tree, one like a rocking horse, another shaped like a house, and the last one is a gingerbread man.
Special symbols include Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer as the Free Spins symbol, Santa as the Wild symbol, and a gift as the Bonus symbol. You may also find an expanding wild every now and then on the reels, and this is represented by Santa with a gift over his head.
The game has a few bonus rounds that can help you win big and enjoy the game more. These include the following:
Free Spins – This occurs when you get three or more of Rudolph on your reels. The more of this reindeer you get on your reels, the more free spins you get:
Also during the Free Spins round, you might encounter the Expanding Wilds reel. This only happens during this round and can only be seen in the middle reel.
Multiplier Wilds – If you get more than one Wild symbol on the reels, you also get multiplied wins. 2 wilds on the same winning line will multiply your winnings by 2. 3 wilds on the same winning line will multiply your winnings by 4. If you get 4 wilds on the same winning line, the winnings will be multiplied by 8.
Surprise Wilds – This is when Santa suddenly replaces one or more of the basic symbols on the reels. This only happens during the base game.
Bonus Round – The bonus round is launched when three of the Gift symbol appears on the reels. When this happens, you will be taken to a special game where you have to choose from hanging items in the hope of filling the shadow figures at the bottom. Each time you pick a symbol, you get two more extra picks.
