It’s the festive period, so online casinos are decking their homepages with decorations and flashing lights, and game developers are releasing their newest Christmas-themed online slot games. But, despite all of this festivity, and seemingly every element of media offering something special for Christmas, including the popular game Fortnite releasing new themed skins, online casinos aren’t seeing their new or old Christmas games climb to the top of their hot charts.
So, which games have proven to have a fan base that’s strong enough to override the festivities of Christmas this year?
Despite new Christmas games, they’re not on top
Over at Casino Moons, the hot list is reserved for the three most popular games at the time, with another special designation given to new games. One of these new games for December is Pragmatic Play’s Leprechaun Carol, which looks to be a very exciting, highly volatile game that combines two popular themes. Of course, the Christmas theme is a popular one this time of year, but leprechauns always manage to draw a crowd due to their association with luck. But, these elements haven’t been enough to break the brand-new Christmas-themed game into Casino Moons’ hot chart.
Instead of any Christmas game or new release being able to break into the top three most popular games on Casino Moons right now, three other awesome games have been able to keep a hold on the top spots at the online casino.
3 Genie Wishes
Featuring a blue genie, a young man in a fez, a princess, and a monkey, 3 Genie Wishes was originally released in 2016 by Pragmatic Play but has been able to hold onto its fan base thanks to its exciting features.
Across three rows, five reels, and 50 paylines, the key to this game is triggering the bonus feature via three magic lamps. With these, the player then gets to select between three items to get one of four prizes, which include Raining Wilds Free Spins, Sticky Wilds Free Spins, an instant win of up to 500x the total bet, or a smaller instant win.
Betsoft’s mid-2018 release Ogre Empire has garnered praise across the online casino world for its stunning graphics and innovative gameplay, so it should come as no surprise that it’s still a wildly popular slot.
As the saying goes in the classic animated movie Shrek “by night one way, by day another,” Ogre Empire’s gameplay is centred around the time of day, offering different rewards in Day Mode and Night Mode. In the day, players can get wilds that grow to cover more symbols and benefit from the Ogre Smash. At Night, the townspeople can be freed, potentially leading to big wins from the King, Queen, and Joker.
With the sexy mother of dragons and her three almighty dragons, Dragon Kingdom is all about massive stacked characters and big wins.
Pragmatic Play has gone all-out to harness the power of dragons while also giving the user a choice to rise whichever dragon they prefer. With three or more scatter, players are then faced with a choice of free spin games, each featuring a different Super Stacked dragon with a different multiplier or players can super stack wilds or the mother of dragons with multipliers.
These three top-class online slot games have been able to avoid the winter crunch during this Christmas period, even remaining on top of the much raved-about Christmas games during the season which is rightfully theirs to dominate.
