Mystery Fox Christmas Party Slot Review
Pariplay’s fox gang certainly seem to like it in Las Vegas. Having stopped in for the original Mystery Fox online slots title, the whole squad are back for the festive season in Mystery Fox Christmas Party.
In truth, little has changed from the original game here. The Vegas backdrop is now dusted in snow, candy canes and stars adorn the reels, and a bell-laden Christmas tune provides the soundtrack but, other than that, the gameplay remains essentially the same.
Just like the original title, this incarnation is all about Wilds, Wilds, and more Wilds, both in the base game – which is enhanced by a Full Reel Wild Mechanic – and in the Free Spins Bonus.
Mystery Fox Christmas Party Slot How to Play
The game takes place on a 5×4 grid with 60 paylines – a layout no doubt familiar to slot machines players. Wins are recorded by connecting three or more matching symbols on any payline, beginning with reel 1. With a betting range of 60p – £300, the game should appeal to casual players and slots high rollers alike.
Much like the game grid and backdrop, the symbols have been given a festive makeover. Blue, Purple, Pink, Yellow and Red Baubles make up the low-paying icons. Premium symbols consist of Champagne Flutes, Roulette Wheels, Cars, Safes, and Christmas versions of the Fox Gang.
The Foxette – looking dapper in her Santa suit – provides the game’s Wild symbol and will substitute for any standard symbol to create a winning line.
Foxette Wilds may appear either as a standard Wild symbol or a 1×2 Stacked Wild.
The Wild Heart of Las Vegas
Whilst Foxette certainly does her bit to keep the Wilds coming, the best of the Wild Action in the base game comes courtesy of the Heart of Vegas feature.
Found above each of the five reels is a four-star meter. Every time a Heart of Vegas symbol lands in a reel, it will light up one of the stars for that reel. Light up all four stars and the whole reel will turn wild for that spin, as well as the three subsequent spins. Fill more than one-star reel simultaneously and you will be well on your way to raising a toast to five-of-a-kind festive wins.
Mystery Fox Christmas Party Slot Bonus Round and Free Spins
Mystery Fox Christmas Party Bonus Round
In common with the original Mystery Fox, much of the excitement and big win potential comes in the Free Spins Bonus.
“The Fox Show” icon represents the game’s Scatter symbol. Landing three or more of these anywhere on the reels will take you through to the bonus selection screen. The exact choices available to you then depend upon the number of Scatters that triggered the bonus.
Three Scatter Choices:
- Two free spins with reels 1, 3 and 5 as Full Reel Wilds.
- Six free spins with reels 2 and 4 as Full Reel Wilds.
- 15 free spins with reel 3 as a Full Reel Wild.
Four Scatter Choices:
- Four free spins with reels 1, 3 and 5 as Full Reel Wilds.
- 12 free spins with reels 2 and 4 as Full Reel Wilds.
- 30 free spins with reel 3 as a Full Reel Wild.
Five Scatter Choices:
- 10 free spins with reels 1, 3 and 5 as Full Reel Wilds.
- 30 free spins with reels 2 and 4 as Full Reel Wilds.
- 75 free spins with reel 3 as a Full Reel Wild.
All free spins take place on the standard set of reels, with the only difference being the absence of the “Heart of Vegas” meter feature.

Mystery Fox Christmas Party RTP and Volatility
The top-end RTP comes in at 96.25%, a notch above the industry average of 96%, which is always to be commended. This is a customizable RTP however, with an alternative of 94.65% also available to online casinos. Always check the information section of the game at your casino of choice to discover the RTP setting.
Sitting in the medium/high category, Mystery Fox Christmas Party is ever so slightly more volatile than the original Mystery Fox. That difference really is only negligible though, with the Heart of Vegas feature and stacked Foxette Wild helping to create a relatively smooth experience.
