Blueprint Gaming hasn't gone overboard with the Christmas presentation, but all you need is a few fluffy hats to set the tone, and it all works a treat. Turning to the gameplay, don’t expect too much from the base game, but that is more than made up for in the always excellent Prize Collection, Upgrading Meter, Free Spins Round. However, the big standout here is the Lightning Spins feature, which adds real variety to the experience. That 95% RTP is the only negative but easily forgivable, particularly given the excellent Max Win potential. Claw-some!

Lightning Spins

Whenever our cast of Crustaceans appear, they may backed by Blue or Gold, and, as we all know, Gold is almost always better than Blue. Land four or more Golden Crustaceans, and you will be grabbing your lobster pot to gather prizes in the Lightning Spins Bonus.

All Golden Crustaceans which triggered the round will remain locked in place, with their attached cash values activated. Each crustacean contains a range of cash prizes as follows:

  • Shrimp: 1x, 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x
  • Crayfish: 6x, 7x, 8x, 9x, 10x, 15x, or 18x
  • Crabs: 20x or 25x
  • Lobsters: 50x

In addition to the standard Cash Crustaceans, four Cashpot Lobsters may appear:

  • Mini:10x
  • Minor: 25x
  • Major: 100x
  • Mega: 2,000x

Lightning Spins begins with three re-spins where only blanks, Cash Prize and Cashpot Crustaceans, Fishermen, or Golden Fishermen may land. Land only blanks and your tally will decrease by one. Land at least one new special symbol, and your total will reset to three.

All Fisherman symbols act as Wild symbols and collect the values of any cash prizes in view, before locking in place.

Golden Fishermen symbols gather all cash prizes (and values of other Fishermen) and present you with a choice of three Lobster Cages. Each Cage contains a multiplier of between 2x and 10x, which will be applied to the total collected by the Golden Fisherman.

Play continues until you run out of spins, at which point you win the total value of all prizes in view. Should you fill all 15 positions with a Crustacean of Fisherman symbol, and a multiplier of up to 5x will be applied to your total win!

Free Spins Bonus

Fishing Boat Scatters guide the way to the Free Spins Bonus.

  • 3x Scatters = 10 free spins
  • 4x Scatters = 15 free spins
  • 5x Scatters = 20 free spins

During the round, Regular Fishermen collect the value of all cash prizes in view. Golden Fishermen collect all prizes and apply a 2x-10x multiplier to the total.

All Fisherman symbols are added to a meter above the reels. Every fourth jolly Angler collected will award five additional free spins and upgrade a Crustacean to the next highest Crustacean type, i.e., all Shrimps become Crayfish, all Crayfish become Crabs, and so on.

Bonus Buy

For those who don’t wish to wait around for the features to trigger, two Bonus Buy options are available:

  • Standard Bonus Buy – Cost 75x: Awards Lightning Spins or Free Spins Bonus
  • Golden Bonus Buy – Cost 180x: Awards Lightning Spins or Free Spins Bonus in which all Fishermen are Golden Multiplying Fishermen

Bonus Buy is only available in eligible jurisdictions (not available to UK players).

Our Verdict A cracking (sorry lobsters) duo of bonus features which combine to create a real sense of big win excitement. Blueprint Gaming has done a great job complimenting the signature Prize Collection Free Spins with an equally exhilarating re-spins-style game.

Crabbin’ for Christmas Slot RTP & Volatility

Variable RTP

The fixed Return to Player (RTP) percentage of 95% is a percentage point below the industry average RTP of 96%.

Falling into the medium to high volatility category, you should expect a little turbulence on these slots’ seas, but nothing like the tidal waves of a pure high-volatility release. Games of this rating offer a balance of low-medium wins and a better chance of a rewarding payout in a short session than low-volatility releases.

Our Verdict That 95% RTP is a little disappointing but standard for games in this series. The crab-themed games tend to be a little more volatile than the fishy releases (perhaps due to the threat of those claws), and this festive instalment follows suit.

Crabbin’ for Christmas Slot Graphics & Audio


Such has been the widespread success of the Fishin’ Frenzy series that the artwork, font, and colour palette are now among the most instantly recognisable in the slots universe. The graphics team have wisely elected to stick to the tried and tested, meaning anyone who has played previous releases will feel right at home. Blue is the colour for the icy oceanscape, which dominates the backdrop, enabling the more vibrant symbols to pop nicely from the screen. As ever, the Crustacean characters steal the show and seem to be having a whale of a time in their cute little hats and mittens.

Top marks to the sound team for providing a fresh, festive twist on the familiar foot-tapping seaside soundtrack. Strummed guitars and a plodding bass set the pace whilst ever so jolly bells twinkle their way to Christmas in the mix. The reel effects stick to the traditional with their escalating whooshes, thuds, and thunderous alarm bells whenever a feature kicks into gear.

Our Verdict Blueprint Gaming always delivers a high-end experience and, much like the other entries in the Fishin'/Crabbin’ portfolio, the cutesy graphics and jaunty audio create a happy time on the reels – this time with a sprinkling of decorations and more fur-trimmed winterwear than you can shake a claw at.
