The Nutcracker Slot Review

The Nutcracker was launched way back in 2018, as one of iSoftBet’s Christmas-themed slots for that year. It is not the most visually stunning casino game you will ever come across. However, if you fancy trying your hand at something a touch seasonal, and want an abundance of wild symbols, there is something to look forward to.

Don’t get too accustomed to seeing special features aplenty in this game. There are not too many, and they are not regularly triggered. Like most Christmas-themed games, such as Secrets of Christmas, Fat Santa, Santa Paws, and Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition; the game has been designed as a money-spinner for iSoftBet at that particular time of the year. Not much effort has been made to ensure that the game remains popular in the long-term.

That might make The Nutcracker sound like it is not worth playing, but that is not true. If you want to play something with relatively low volatility, an industry standard RTP rate of 95.97%, and affordable stakes, then you will likely like what you find in this iSoftBet developed game.

How to Play The Nutcracker

The colourful reels and symbols are somewhat let down by a rather beige and boring wagering menu.

While dull, this set of options does at least allow you to tinker with your bets, stretching them from a base minimum of 0.20 up to a capped maximum of 20.00 a spin.

Some casinos extend this to 160.00 a turn, so you will need to shop around to find an edition with the extended wagering range.

High-playing card symbols, toys aplenty such as trains and bears can deliver moderate wins on the reels. However, it is the characters from the ballet itself which dish out the spoils. Wins of up to 80,000 coins can be acquired in the game, and that is not to be sniffed at.

Alongside those symbols, you can also find two special icons, and they include:

  • Wild – The Nutcracker himself (the toy soldier) can replace all save for scatters.
  • Scatter – Land the sugar plum fairy three times during a spin to trigger the game’s bonus round.

Game Rules

The Nutcracker Slot Features

There is not exactly a wealth of bonus features for you to trigger in The Nutcracker. However, the two it does carry are at least exciting and at times, richly rewarding. Here is a brief rundown of what you can expect with them:

Fairy Free Spins 

At the same time, there is a second free spin round. This is triggered with the Sugar Plum Fairy scatters. You will start with between 10 and 30 of these spins, although additional games can be won while the round is in play. This time, if The Nutcracker appears on the third reel, he will boost your wins by 1x.

This multiplier applies to all your subsequent wins and can reach up to 10x in value in total. If you hope to get your hands on the 80,000-coin non-progressive prize mentioned earlier, you will need to land 10x multipliers aplenty in this mode.

Fairy Free Spins 
The Nutcracker Gift Bonus

If the Nutcracker appears on the third reel of the game, you will access the Nutcracker Gift Bonus. Here, you can pick from symbols to win between 5 and 10 spins. While those spins take place, you will get to benefit from a sticky wild on the third reel. It does cover the entire third reel, so you should be able to land some decent wins here.

Moreover, any winning icons lock into place, triggering re-spins, which only further increases your odds of success. However, there is a second slot feature that can spice things up even more, so let us look at that next.
