Santa’s bottomless bag of gifts

Indigo Magic knows about magic - and what could be more magic than Santa's journey around the world to deliver presents from his endless bag of presents? It's this game: a joyful Christmas experience that perfectly recreates the spirit of expectation of presents and rewards.

Down the Chimney is the most recent addition to the evergrowing roster of finely crafted slots by Indigo Magic, one of Bragg's in-house studios. Casino operators will surely appreciate this new release coming out just in time for the December holiday celebrations. It has all the features of a future best performer that will delight players with its interplay between modern sophistication and traditional Christmas charm.

It's a medium volatility game with 432 paylines, 4435x maximum win multiplier and a default RTP of 95,50% with five more RTP options ranging from 88% to 96% thanks to which it can comply with any local regulation globally. It has a 4x3x3x3x4 grid with a feed of bonus symbols above the grid where the top positions of inner reels usually are.

This unusual solution allows the players to see which bonus symbols they might be landing in the next couple of spins (if they are playing it on desktop or mobile horizontally) or in the next five spins (if they are playing it on mobile vertically). It allows for tactical play with which players can optimize their betting strategy by betting more when they can see the chance of landing an especially good or valuable bonus symbol. Needless to say, it markedly contributes to the overall entertainment experience and adds a new layer of reel-spinning fun.

Gift Box Feature

In this game, even Santa's reindeer hand out presents. The trick is to land one Rudolph symbol on the first and one on the fifth reel, and one or more Sleigh symbols on any of the inner reels. When this happens, you are rewarded with the Gift Box from the top position of the reel on which the Sleigh landed. Gift Boxes may contain instant cash rewards, up to 50 free games and one of the three Jackpots, the biggest being the Grand Jackpot worth 2000x your current bet. A random Gift Box can be won too, both in base game and during free games, which makes any spin a potential source of these goodie bags.

Free games galore!

The best rewards in the game can be, however, won in the free games phase. Luckily there are good chances for that as Gift Boxes often contain and deliver up to 50 free spins. When that happens, Christmas magic begins! First thing, whenever free games are triggered, players receive at least one guaranteed Gift Box no matter how many free games they won, which is clearly a nice present in and of itself. On top of that, Rudolph may randomly prance onto the grid in this phase to add 4 to 9 Wilds on the inner reels!

Final impressions

The game is all about the Christmas holidays and its traditional imagery: boughs of holly, golden stars and a Christmas tree surround the fireplace onto which the game grid is placed. Royal symbols are made of gingerbread with frosting and sprinkles, while for the mid-paying symbols, the studio used typical wintery Christmas items such as snow globes, bells, baubles and Advent candles. All this is presented in a more than delightful artistic style with corresponding and heart-warming background music and SFX to boot.

Down the Chimney is how Santa gets in to deliver presents and make players happy, especially in the festive season. With its rich potential to engage and entertain them, adding this gem of a slot may just be the best Christmas present casino operators could gift to their players - and themselves.
