Santas-Wild-Ride-Slot-MainAlways eager to keep players accessing any of their networked casino slot tournaments happy, Microgaming, whose casino software platforms are utilized by dozens of online casinos, has just announced that they have added the Santa’s Wild Ride slot machine to their every growing number of slot tournament games.

The number of online slots found in play and attached to slot tournaments on offer in many fully download casino sites using Microgaming software has been steadily growing over the last couple of years, and to celebrate the launch of this Christmas themed Santa’s Wild Ride slot onto their tournament network it will be the base slot game found on their Monthly Monster slot tournament running throughout December 2013.

Will Santa’s Wild Ride make a good tournament slot?

As you will probably already be aware some slots make ideal tournament games whilst sadly some others that can be accessed and played on several Microgaming casinos are not ideal to be played in this format.

The best features of any slot game which makes them ideal to be played in a tournament format will include fast playing bonus games which trigger regularly plus additional special base game features that will enable you to amass high scores thanks to features such as wild multipliers and the such like.

The Santa’s Wild Ride slot in our opinion makes an ideal tournament game due to many of its very unique game playing features one of which is the Random Multiplier symbol, whenever this wild symbol drops in on any activated paylines and helps to complete a winning combination it will randomly award a multiplier of either x2, x3 or x4.

Probably the main reason why this slot is an ideal one to play when it is attached to any of Microgaming’s network wide slot tournaments is its actual playing structure, for when playing this slot you are playing 243 ways to win and as such this guarantees that whenever a winning combination is formed from the first reel onwards you will have that winning combinations covered.

You will be rewarded with a set of 25 free spins when playing the Santa’s Wild Ride slot game should three or more of the Key symbols appear anywhere in view, these are the scatter symbols and once three or more of them spin in not only will those 25 free spins begin to play out an additional set of bonus features become active as you will be given the option of putting into play one of three unique ways for the wild symbols to operate during the free spins.

You can opt for the wild symbols to become Stacked Wild symbols for the duration of the free spins bonus game, and as such with a bit of luck a very high score can be achieved whenever several sets of them drop in on different reels in this stacked formation.

Alternatively you can opt for the wild symbols to be Expanding Wilds, and as such whenever just one of them appears in any reel position they can expand upwards and downwards covering the entire reel they spun in on.

The final option of how the free spins Wild symbols will work is by you selecting them to become Trailing Wild symbols and as they drop into position all reel positions above the wilds also become Wild symbols.

It will be up to you just how you set those free spins wild symbols to play out, however do think carefully which one you select for you will want to pick the option offering you the best chance of amassing a high score via the payouts awarded during the free spins bonus game.
