Ukraine game development studio, Evoplay Entertainment, is adding to the holiday excitement in its own special way with the launch of its latest slot, Brutal Santa.
The return of the slightly twisted, holiday-themed video slot packs a punch with a hedonistic streak and a rock and roll twist!
Forget everything you thought you knew about jolly old Saint Nick as this Santa is a tatted up biker who prefers crashing through a house’s wall rather than sliding down chimnies, and instead of a reindeer-led sleigh delivers presents from a flame-emblazoned motorcycle to those of us who have been naughty instead of nice.
A cool guitar riff along with a huge fireplace and fully decorated tree set the mood nicely in this low-to-medium variance, 3-reel 9-payline slot, where players earn wins each time Father Christmas takes a present from his red sack. If a player lands a winning combination across the three reels, Santa grabs a gift from his bag and tosses it onto the reels, if not, out it goes.
Each of the winning gifts represents a special bonus, and there are seven in total for players to unlock throughout the festive game. Gifts can create new winning combinations, trigger extra spins or increase total wins.
The bonus symbol, Waggit the Spuds-looking dog/reindeer, give 5 additional extra spins, however, the feature can only be activated in combination with gift extra spins, while the bonus symbol only appears in the main game, and only on the 1st and 3rd reels.
Extra spins are delivered in combinations of 5, 10 or 15 and for them to be activated the jolly one must remove the gift FS from his sack in a winning round. The gift FS activates five extra spins, while each bonus symbol, which appears on the reels in the extra spins activation round, gives 5 additional extra spins.
Santa’s saucy Christmas elf serves as the Chic Wild symbol, which substitutes all regular symbols and takes 3 positions on the reel, and appears only on the 2nd reel, and only during extra spins.
Commenting on the Kyiv-headquartered developer’s latest launch, Ivan Kravchuk, Creative Director for Evoplay Entertainment, said…
“Christmas comes but once a year, so we thought what better way to celebrate the festive fun by bringing out our own sinful Santa!
“Guaranteed to be this year’s most exciting Christmas caper, Brutal Santa is packed with free spins, multipliers and random gifts to keep the reels turning all holiday long.”
While the online casino games developer is a relative newcomer to the industry, having been established in 2017, the studio’s portfolio already includes a 60-title collection of popular slots, such as the ancient Egyptian-themed, Legends of Ra, Football, The Legend Of Shaolin, Robin Hood, Egypt Gods, Great Wall, Basketball, Clash Of Pirates, Talismans of Fortune, Four Aces, American Roulette, the latest in 3D + VR technology, Sprinkle, and many more.
Utilizing HTML5 technology, Brutal Santa can be played on desktop, tablet and mobile and has a return to player (RTP) rate of 96 percent.
Late last month, the supplier inked a content deal with premier online bookmaker and casino operator, Betzest, making some of its most innovative titles available to the operator’s casino customers.
