Written by E. T. A. Hoffman and published in 1816, the story follows a young German girl dreaming of her prince and his battle against a Mouse King with 7 heads.
This slot is made up of 5 reels and 20 lines, and the Bonus symbols include a Wild that can stand in for any other icon in order to help players create a winning combination, except the Sugar Plum Fairy Scatter and the titular character. The latter awards the Gift Bonus if it appears on the 3rd reel, and it is also able to stack.
3 or more of the Scatter symbols landing on the reels will get the Free Spins feature going. While this part of the game’s action is unfolding, the Stacked Nutcracker icon on the 3rd reel increases the Multiplier being added to win totals, and, should any additional Sugar Plum Fairy Scatters appear on the reels, you’ll get awarded extra Free Spins.
As is the case with all the titles that this casino software developer has made available, The Nutcracker can be played on all mobile devices, in both landscape and portrait mode, as well as on PCs.
The Chief Commercial Officer for the premium online and mobile casino game software provider has said that his company was well aware of how iconic a tale this one is before they took on the challenge of reinterpreting it. He went on to explain that, thanks to mechanics proven to be popular with slots fans, and a substantiated mathematics model, he was sure it was going to be a big hit.
The slot includes both classic features and totally original ones, and manages to stay true to theme throughout. The Return to Player Rate is an excellent 95.97%, and it is of a medium- to high-variance. Superb visuals and a well-chosen soundtrack are sure to get you in to the Christmas spirit!
