With only a month till Christmas, excitement and euphoria have already begun to take over our hearts!
With that in mind, Big Time Gaming (BTG), which was officially acquired by Evolution Gaming in the summer of 2021, has launched its latest Christmas-themed online slot, Christmas Catch, which arrived on the Evolution Network on December 1. This high-volatility video slot is a festive twist on BTG’s player-favorite Golden Catch slot, with the added bonus of a winter paradise landscape on the night before Christmas.
This exciting holiday release invites players to become part of a fairytale-like adventure and help Santa prepare presents just in time for Christmas. The game takes place just outside of Santa’s workshop, which means playing this winter adventure will definitely send players on a journey toward entertainment, relaxation and a plethora of rewards! Additionally, the festive soundtrack only adds to the festive atmosphere of the game.
The slot includes the Megaways game mechanic, which means it offers 117,649 winning ways on every spin, giving players the boost they need to land some big wins this holiday season. In addition, it has a solid RTP of 96.53% and a maximum win of 31,430x a player’s wager.
In terms of features, Santa’s reindeer are the main attraction here! During each reaction and spin, reindeer Sleigh symbols may land just above 2-5 reels gifting players accumulated cash rewards and multipliers. Each time winning symbols disappear from the reels, 1 or more Gift Bonus Prizes may appear on the aforementioned reels. These prizes are rewarded for every Sleigh symbol and may be worth a maximum of 500x a player’s wager, which depends on the number of symbols on its particular reel.
A bonus round to help the reindeer fly and deliver the presents on time:
To help Santa’s reindeer take off and deliver presents to children around the world just before Christmas, the 3 Golden Pudding Scatters available during the base game are used for players to earn 10 free spins, with an extra 2 for each Scatter used after the initial 3. Upon activation, the first Sleight takes off featuring a 1x Sleigh Multiplier, and with every following one, the Multiplier grows by 1, improving the player’s Gift Bonus Prizes more and more.
But that’s not all, because by collecting 3 or more Scatters throughout Free Spins, players will be awarded with 4 additional free spins. In addition, for each Scatter collected after the initial 3, the same sequence as before applies.
Expressing pride for this new slot, CEO of BTG, Nik Robinson, said: “We love this time of year because we have a lot of momentum with our annual Christmas slot, and we have sprinkled as much festive fun as we can onto Christmas Catch. And so, on behalf of everyone at BTG, we’d like to wish all slots fans around the world, health, wealth, happiness and prosperity this Christmas season.”
Also, Chief Business Development Officer for Europe at Evolution, added: “Christmas-themed slots are becoming a genre unto themselves, but Christmas Catch must be a contender for the best one ever. This is more than just a seasonal gimmick, it’s a seriously good game with the kind of hugely engaging gameplay we’ve come to expect from BTG.”
