Snowmania is a simple five-reel Christmas slot by Realtime Gaming that promises big wins that are capped to 2,500x your total bet! During the base game you’ll get crush win multipliers up to x5, and this rises up to x15 during the free spins feature. To add to this, the pay table alone already can deliver wins up to 125x your bet on a single payline!
Where to Play Snowmania
Snowmania, released in 2016, is played on a standard 5×3 board, with 20 fixed paylines. It’s very easy to select your bet per spin as you don’t have to worry about paylines, you simply select your bet from $0.20 to $20 using the buttons below the reels.
Realtime Gaming slots are configurable by the casino you’re playing at, and it’s safe to assume most will set this game to 95% RTP.
There are only seven symbols in the paytable, which means it’s easier to get winning paylines than if there were more of them. There are no card symbols either, all seven symbols use artwork, which is always a good thing.
All winning symbols are crushed after wins are awarded, so new symbols fall from above and may award additional wins. Crushing continues until no new win is awarded, so this can go on and on – and the win multiplier increases by each crush. It starts at x1, and then progresses to x2 after the first crush, followed by x3 and x5.
The prizes are something else – Realtime Gaming doesn’t normally give such prizes for best symbols. In Snowmania, the top symbol is worth 2500 coins for five-of-a-kind on a 20 coin bet, so that’s a 125x win on a single payline! There’s another symbol that pays 1000 coins, so this is a good paytable that can deliver a huge win on it’s own. With a x5 win multiplier, the top single payline win in this game is 625x your bet. While the theoretical maximum full board win would be 12,500x your bet, wins are capped to 2,500x per spin.
Ice Wild appears on reels 2, 3 and 4, and there’s a Present symbol that triggers the free spins.
When you land three Presents on your board on a winning payline from left to right – these are not Scatters – you’ll trigger the free spins game and will get 10 free spins.
During the free spins, the win multipliers will increase. Every spin will already start with a x3 win multiplier, which will be followed by x6 after the first crush, x9 after the second and x15 threreafter. This makes the incredible paytable even more exciting, as five-of-a-kind of the best symbol can be worth up to 1,875x your bet on a single payline! It’s no wonder Realtime Gaming had to cap wins in this game to 2,500x!
Snowmania is perhaps not the most attractive Christmas slot that Realtime Gaming released, as you’d be forgiven for playing all those fun games with cool characters such as Rudolph or Santa’s Sexy Helpers instead. But this is definitely the most profitable Christmas title RTG released. This game can really award big wins, and it’s the game to play if you want to increase your Christmas budget in a single spin!
