Being linked to the fast growing jackpot system, there are 3 different progressive jackpots in the game. There is a mini jackpot, minor jackpot, major jackpot and a mega jackpot. Any one of these jackpots can pay out completely at random after any spin. Obviously if you win any one of them you would enjoy it. Additionally the mega and even sometimes the major jackpot can reach levels that would be life changing for most players. They are frequently in the tens of thousands of dollars from a single rand spin.

Stacked Mystery Symbol
Each reel contains a stacked mystery symbol position that are replaced with one random symbol before the spin. All Mystery symbol positions are filled with the same symbol during that spin. A mystery symbol can be filled with any regular symbol, and at random and can end in a big match win.
Wild reels are symbolized by Christmas gift. the gifts are stacked on the reels and will take the entire reel and will substitute for all symbols except bonus.
Mystery Wild Reels Feature
Similar to the look of the main wild, the mystery wild can be triggered in any base game spin. 1-3 will be awarded randomly. Once awarded the mystery wild will with be held in place until the other reels stop spinning and all combinations are counted and paid.
Santa’s Gift Bag
The obvious symbol one always associates with Santa is his red bag of gifts. In Sleighin It slot it acts as the bonus scatter symbol. The scatter will only appear on reels #1, #3 or #5.
Upon trigger of the bonus round you will pick one of 4 options as follows:
- 20 Free Spins with 1 wandering reel.
- 12 Free spins with 2 wandering reels.
- 8 Free Spins with 3 wandering reels.
- Mystery Choice: 20, 12, or 8 spins with 1, 2 or 3 wandering reels.
See below for the wandering reel explanation.
During the free spins rounds only, the stacked wild gifts are a wandering reel. The gifts can move with each free spin, are wild and will help match wins on paylines. Some may refer to this as a walking wild symbol.
Free spin rounds can not be re-triggered during the free rounds.
Betting Range Per Spin
Bet amounts are adjustable per spin. The range starts at a penny per line or 30 cents, up to $1 per line or a total of $30 per spin. What we found disappointing was you could not do 2 cents per line or 60 cents per spin as it jumped from 30 cents to 90 per spin. We put up with that and actually did well on one f our test sessions at 89 cents so it worked out in the end.
Sleighin It’ slot is rated at a 96.10% return That is decent and clearly games in that range most often are the kinds of rtp we look for in games.
Recap or Final Conclusion
The Sleighin’ It slot has so many ways to win we enjoyed the game a lot. Once you see how many different ways the wild gifts and bonus symbols help you will too. We especially like having 4 different choices of how to play the free spin rounds. In fact we plan on playing this game more to see if we can determine the best strategy to use on that. It’s a tough call with that many choices.
Having a theme centered around Christmas and Santa can help put anyone in a festive mood. Whether the holidays are near or not, you too will have fun by giving this game a try. See below for the featured casino where you can try this game or see our reviews for casinos that have Betsoft games.
