There’s a festive feel to the design in The Nutcracker. The purple reels are set against a mansion draped in Christmas lights. There you’ll find lower value gold royal values as well as a teddy bear, a toy train, a young girl and the mouse king. The latter is the top payer. Land 3, 4 or 5 of the mouse and you’ll receive an award of 1.5, 5 or 25 times your stake.

The Nutcracker (the toy soldier) is the game’s wild. It substitutes for everything apart from the Sugar Plum Fairy which is the scatter. There are 2 bonus features in The Nutcracker.

Fairy Free Spins feature – 10, 20 or 30 free spins are awarded if you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. Look out here for The Nutcracker wild. Every time this lands fully stacked on the middle reel , t boosts a multiplier by 1, up to a maximum of 10x. You can add more free spins to your tally here too. 1 or 2 scatters adds another 1 or 2 free spins. Landing 3, 4 or 5 gets a full re-trigger of 10, 20 or 30 free spins.

Nutcracker Gift Bonus & Free Spins feature – the second bonus round becomes active if you land a fully stacked Nutcracker wild on the middle reel in the base game. You’ll then be taken to a new room and offered a selection of gift boxes. Inside these are 5, 7, 8 or 10 free spins.

During these free spins, the Nutcracker wild will be stacked on reel 3 throughout. If you land a winner, you’ll receive a respin with the winning symbols locking in place. The respins keep on coming until a free spin where no new winning symbol is added.
