December is here and the holiday magic has begun!
Relax Gaming, an innovative Malta-based iGaming supplier, is also in the festive spirit in its new cluster-paying slot, Santa’s Stack Dream Drop, where players can once again see its latest Dream DropTM upgrade in action.
New upgrade and impressive visuals:
In its previous slot releases, Relax Gaming used its latest upgrade Dream DropTM, which is a progressive jackpot network with a possible upper limit of $10 million. However, every slot that uses this upgrade proves to be an absolute hit!
To win, players must form matching combinations of at least five matching symbols, when they appear next to each other in vertically or horizontally adjacent places on the board on the new dynamic 8×8 grid.
The basic low-value symbols are blue, green and red bulbs, while the high-value symbols are Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, the elf, Mrs Claus and Santa. A combination of 5 low-value symbols is worth 0.2x for bulbs or 0.5-1x for premiums, increasing to a maximum of 750-1250x a player’s bet for 60+ low-value symbols, while a combination of 60+ premium high-value symbols is worth 2.000-10.000x a player’s bet.
However, if Wilds land, they replace all paying symbols!
The game’s volatility is in the highest range, with an RTP of 94% due to the upgrade. Therefore, the frequency of free spins has also been reduced. Higher bets equal a higher chance of triggering the jackpot and the player’s paid spins can be gambled on for 20 p/c to 50 eur/$ per spin.
The Secret Santa Re-Spin feature is activated when the Wild symbol places part of the winning group. When the feature is activated, the winning group will transform into Mystery symbols and the Respin will be awarded with the Mystery symbols locked in place. Each time a similar win occurs, the new winning group repeats the cycle.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when 3 or more scatters appear on the grid. The Secret Santa feature remains active throughout this round and Wilds are guaranteed to appear at the beginning of each spin. The number of Wilds that appear increases by 1 each spin. Landing 3 bonus symbols activates 5 free spins and each extra bonus symbol will award an additional spin.
The Dream Drop Bonus can be activated randomly prior to any base spin. This feature includes five jackpots: RAPID, MIDI, MAXI, MAJOR or MEGA.
The main objective of this feature is for players to discover 3 of the same jackpots, while being presented with 15 options. As soon as the goal is reached, the round will end.
In the developer’s press release for the new game, Simon Hammon, CEO for Relax Gaming, said: “We hope combining the excitement of our Dream Drop jackpots with the beloved Christmas cheer of Santa’s Stack will result in the kind of joyous experience everyone needs this year.
“Set against an engaging retro winter wonderland backdrop, I can assure players and operators alike that Santa’s Stack Dream Drop will be the gift that keeps on giving this holiday season!”
