Christmas Catch Slot Review

Christmas Catch Slot Overview

With a title like Christmas Catch, you could be forgiven for expecting this to be another entry into the festive fishing genre. However, on this occasion, you would be wrong. There are no Fish in evidence in this thoroughly Christmassy release, but rather a cast of Reindeer – ready, willing and able to haul in the Instant Win Gift Boxes delivered onto the reels. Joining the Prize Collection system in this festive feast are a dynamic Megaways Grid, Reaction Wins, Wilds, and a progressively rewarding Free Spins Bonus. Get on the right side of Rudolph in this one, and you may be unwrapping a 31,430x max win!

First up, if you have played Golden Catch from this developer, you have effectively played this game. Nevertheless, we preferred this bright Yuletide theme to the original, and it’s nice to see a developer go for a full reimagining rather than tacking a few hats and Santa suits onto a carp or two. Ignoring any similarities to previous titles, the gameplay is excellent, particularly the combination of Reaction Wins and a Collect System. Bringing balance and solid win potential to the base game, this mechanic receives a healthy Multiplier boost in the Bonus Round, which more than lives up to expectations. Better than average in terms of RTP and Max Win potential, those seeking a festive twist on their gaming are well advised to check this out!

Christmas Catch Slot Features

Reaction Wins

Following any win, all winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new symbols falling from above. This process repeats for every winning combination, creating the possibility of rewarding Reaction Wins!

Christmas Tree Wilds

May appear on any reel and substitute for all standard symbols to help create winning combinations.

Sleigh Prize Collection

Following all wins, one or more Cash Prize Presents will appear in one of the vacated positions. These Prize values will be collected and added to your balance if a Sleigh is atop the reels at the time.

Sleighs may randomly appear above reels two to five on any spin or reaction win. Following each Reaction, Sleighs above reel two will move off the grid, whilst all other Sleighs shift one reel to the left – creating the possibility of multiple Prize Collection wins in the same Reaction Sequence.

Look out for the special Golden Sleighs in the base game, which collect all Cash Prizes and apply an 10x multiplier to the total!

Free Spins Bonus

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a round, raisin-based dessert. Christmas Pudding icons duly serve as the Scatter Symbols.

  • 3x Scatters = 10 free spins
  • 4x Scatters = 12 free spins
  • 5x Scatters = 14 free spins
  • 6x Scatters = 16 free spins

Landing three to six additional Scatters during the round will see four to 10 additional free spins added to your tally.

The Free Spins Bonus looks much like the base game, but those lovely Reindeer-driven Sleighs are turbo-charged by an escalating Multiplier. The first Sleigh to show up will have a 1x multiplier, the second 2x, the third 3x, and so on, up to a potentially unlimited amount. If two or more Sleighs sit above the reels, their Multipliers will be added and applied to the win.

Win Exchange and Bonus Buy

Following any win of 100x or more, you may swap 100x worth of your win for 10 free spins.

For wins between 25x and 99x, you may risk your entire win for a chance to grab 10 free spins. Land in the Green section to move into Free Spins, but land in the Red, and you will lose it all.

Alternatively, you can purchase 10 free spins for 100x the total bet via the Bonus Buy tab. Bonus Buy is only available in eligible jurisdictions (not available to UK players).

Our Verdict The galloping Reindeer and their Sleighs are always welcome in the base game - and are even friendlier in the feature. Things begin slowly with the 1x Multiplier, but the win potential quickly moves through the gears. Combine a re-trigger or two with those ever-increasing Multipliers, and you may be well on your way to a spectacular win.

Christmas Catch Slot RTP & Volatility

Variable RTP

The fixed Return to Player (RTP) of 96.53% compares favourably with the industry average RTP of 96%.

Falling into the high volatility category of games, Christmas Catch’s sleigh ride is of the rocky variety. Games of this rating come with their share of ups and downs but provide a better chance of a big win in a short session than low-medium-volatility releases.

Our Verdict Christmas hats off to Big Time Gaming for an RTP of 96.53%, which represents excellent value for money. Happily, this is also a fixed RTP and will be the same across all online casinos. The friendly, snowy setting doesn’t scream high volatility, but the gameplay may take you on a rollercoaster reel ride.

Christmas Catch Slot Graphics & Audio


A picturesque wintery street provides the setting for the game, with the reels laid out onto the red-brick façade of Santa’s Workshop – complete with a flashing neon sign. Snow covers the rooftops, whilst a slightly out-of-focus cityscape adds depth to the scene. The bright and shiny card values will be familiar to anyone who has played a Megaways release from this developer, with the high-pays and Special Symbols carrying the burden of bringing the theme to the game grid. However, they receive plenty of help from the glittering fairy lights border and Rudolph and his chums, who gleefully trot across the reels.

A gentle music box eases you in when first loading up the game, but the soundtrack soon gathers pace once you hit that spin button. Xylophones, strings, and twinkling bells all combine to play that festive favourite of Jingle Bells. The reel effects have a satisfying rattling of hooves effect, interspersed with the light explosions and electronic chirps of the Reaction Wins and the neighing Reindeer, who like to make themselves heard.

Our Verdict This is another lovely-looking slot from Big Time Gaming, with the simple but effective setting recalling a traditional Christmas card scene. A little variety in the high-pay symbols wouldn’t have gone amiss, but we loved the vibrant Present symbols and Christmas Tree Wilds. Jaunty and as festive as it comes, the soundtrack will soon have you nodding along and dreaming of the 25th of December.
