Jingle Bells is a charming real-moneyChristmas slot from Red Tiger Gaming that offers a host of in-game bonuses and two different bonus games. If you’re used to Christmas slots being minimal in terms of gameplay features, prepare to be surprised -as this game comes with bells on!
The layout of this Christmas slot is much what you’d expect from a festive offering. Graphics and animations are simple, with an old school style and more Christmas imagery than you could shake a candy cane at!
With a low to medium volatility (variance), payouts are common but big wins are rare, although regularly triggering the in-game bonuses such as Raining Wilds and Mega Wilds can change that quickly if you’re lucky.
Playable up to $500 a spin, this 96.18% RTP slot should appeal to the high rollers, with the multiple bonus rounds only helping to impress!
All but one of the symbols appearing on the reels of Red Tiger’s Jingle Bells payout for three or more adjacent symbols, on any of the 20 fixed paylines. The only exception is the highest value standard symbol, the bells, which pay 2x stake for two on a payline, 60x stake for three, 160x for four, and 320x for five.
The lower value symbols are the conventional 10, J, Q, K, and A symbols, the highest value of which, the A, pays 20x stake for three on a payline, 40x for four, and 80x for five.
The candy cane symbol pays 24x, 50x, and 100x stake,
the stocking pays 30x, 60x, and 120x,
the baubles are worth 26x, 70x, and 140x, and
the star is valued at 40x, 80x, and 160x.
There is also a wild symbol, which features heavily in the base game features that trigger randomly. This is a busy symbol, as well as acting as wilds do (substituting for all standard symbols to help with winning combinations on a payline) the wild is also the most lucrative symbol on the reels, paying out 80x stake for three of a kind, 200x for four, and 400x for five.
There are lots of bonus games to unwrap here, Santa can sneak across the screen at any time during the base game and trigger one of four bonus features.
The Raining Wilds feature sees wilds fall at random onto the reels, while the Mega Wild bonus adds a 3x3 giant wild symbol to play. Both these wild features can lead to big wins if your luck is in. The Winning Reels feature removes all lower value playing card symbols from the reels for a spin, while the Christmas Tree bonus adds a multiplier of up to 20x to any win.
Land three Santa’s sleigh symbols and you’ll be taken to the Santa’s Bonus feature, this pick and click game sees you work your way along a mountain trail, get to the top for 800x your stake!
The free spins feature, which triggers with three or more scatter symbols, sees a brief picker round where you choose one of three sacks to reveal a specific number of free spins up to 20. These spins can be retriggered and any of the base game features can also trigger during this feature, so there are a few ways to potentially win big here.
Android, iOS, and Windows players can all enjoy the Jingle Bells Online Christmas slot machine on their mobile and tablet devices. Touchscreen control and seamless gameplay are characteristic of Red Tiger mobile slots and all those benefits are present here too.
All four base game features and the two big bonus games are both available for mobile players and triggered the same way, and the animations (limited as they are) also turn up on mobile devices.
With minimum and maximum bet limits, paylines, and the auto-spin options also available, you won’t miss out if you choose to play this game on your mobile device.

We really enjoyed the Jingle Bells Christmas slot, far more than we expected to. There are conventions around Christmas slots at this point, and this Red Tiger Gaming title defies them all with its variety of exciting gameplay features. We found each of the base game features to be potentially lucrative, and big wins to be possible in both the bonus games too!
Red Tiger Gaming has recently upped the game again with the release of the revamped Jingle Bells: Power Reels, but the original title is still more than worth your time.
If you’re looking for a slot game to keep you entertained through your time off over the Christmas period, either on desktop, laptop, mobile, or tablet Jingle Bells is a great option. And you never know, you might end up with more than just a stocking full of cash!
