Bring in the Christmas Cheer With Jingle Wins

Celebrate the festive period by firing up Jingle Wins by Wizard Games, a new Christmas-themed online pokie available right now.

Christmas is right around the corner which means this is the perfect time to talk about a Christmas-themed pokie. Jingle Wins is a festive pokie from Wizard Games that is available at Wolf Winner where a $5,500 bonus awaits. This is the first game from Wizard Games, let us see if they hit the jackpot.

Jingle Wins Fundamentals

They say not to judge a book by its cover but Jingle Wins is a massive hit regarding how it looks. The game looks superb from the Christmas-themed symbols to the cosy background complete with a roaring open fire.

Those symbols spin around a 5×4 layout with 30 win lines. Wizard Games opted for a medium variance model, too, but that is where the positives end.

Jungle Wins comes with RTP ranges, which nobody is a fan of. Three Return To Player levels are available. Most online casinos use the 96.18% version, but there is a 93.99% and an 88% edition, too. Always play the game with the highest RTP.

The RTP you play affects the maximum possible payout. The highest is 1339.55x, meaning $267.91 at the $0.20 min-stakes, and $2,679.10 at the $2 max-stakes. Those stakes are not enough for high rollers but this game is not aimed at them.

Jingle Wins Symbols

It should not be a surprise to learn all the Jingle Wins symbols are Christmas themed. Royals are the lowest-value symbols, but they look cool like baubles. They pay between 0.2x and 2x for landing three to five matching symbols.

A gingerbread man and candy cane are the next tier of paying symbols. Land three for 0.35x your stake and 0.60x for matching five.

The star and Santa Claus are the highest-value symbols in Jingle Wins. Santa pays 1x for three and 5x for five.

Symbol Three Four Five
Santa 1x 1.5x 5x
Star 0.5x 1x 4x
Gingerbread Man and Candy Cane 0.35x 0.6x 3x
Royals Baubles 0.2x 0.4x 2x

Three other symbols land on the base game. Look out for the Free Spins logo landing on Reel 1. Pair it with at least one of the Bonus symbols on Reels 2-5 and you receive seven free spins. In addition, the Bonus symbols act as wilds.

What Are The Games Bonus and Features?

Landing at least two wilds anywhere on the board starts the Santa Surprise feature of Jingle Wins. Santa Surprise highlights the area between where the wilds landed and all symbols in the highlighted area turn wild! Wild Wizard calls this the Wild Boxing feature. Furthermore, this feature is quite easily retriggered during the bonus round.

Landing a Free Spins symbol on Reel 1 and at least one bonus symbol on Reels 2-5 starts the free spins bonus round. Seven free spins are yours regardless of how many bonus symbols land. However, you cannot retrigger the free spins.

Random symbols sometimes turn into x2 multiplier wilds, although this is quite rare.

Purchasing the bonus round is possible, but not in every jurisdiction. You have four bonus buy features, each awarding 10 free spins. Paying 100x, 175x, 350x, and 900x your stake gives you 1, 2, 3, or 4 wilds guaranteed. In addition, choosing 2-4 wilds guarantees the Santa Surprise triggers.


There is something charming about Jingle Wins, especially at this time of year. Christmas is a fun time and that is what this poker machine is about, fun. Wizard Games hit the nail on the head when they set out to achieve a fun game.

But, and here is the but, they got the mathematics all wrong. The 96.18% RTP is not too bad but the others are borderline criminal. A medium variance machine should pay out more than 1,339.55x, too.

Do not play Jingle Wins to get rich because that will never happen. Play it for a relaxing, fun time, play it for those reasons.
