Jolly’s Gifts is a mobile slot which launched in December 2017, just in time for Christmas. The festive season happens to be the main theme of this game, which was developed by Side City Studios.
This mobile game is certainly a more traditional slot in terms of its Christmas theme than many other games, with old-school toys for girls and boys very much the focal point on the reels of this game.
Side City Studios have really come on of late, although that is largely down to their relationship with NextGen Gaming who have a small hand in the development and release of the fledgling casino software providers games. Jolly’s Gifts is a fine example of what they can do.
Rather than focusing on the boring and overproduced aspects of Christmas, the developers have come up something which stands out. The slot has also been designed to cater specifically to the mobile gaming community.
How to play
It may not look like it, but there are actually 40 paylines spread over the 5 reels of this Christmas-themed mobile slot machine.
Ordinarily, you would expect to be wagering anything from $0.40 upwards on this mobile slot, but that just isn’t the case. Using the basic (and mobile-friendly) buttons, you can readily wager as little as $0.25 per spin on the game, with top stakes capped at a respectable $250 per spin.

Wild symbols: Keep your eyes peeled for the little girl, she’s called Jolly. The pink-bowed girl appears as the wild and can be the trigger for a non-progressive jackpot prize if 5 of her appear on a line. As always, wilds can replace all symbols save for other bonus icons.
Mystery symbols: Presents appearing on the reels can often show up stacked. These are mystery symbols, and when they do appear, they can transform into any other icons in the game, which may help you out landing a win.
Scatter symbols: Appearing as an adorable kitten wearing a Santa hat, these scatter icons can trigger free spins when they land on the first, third and fifth reels on a single base game spin.
Free spin bonus: Players will start Jolly’s Gifts’ free spins bonus round with a total of 12 free games. During those spins, stacked mystery symbols will always transform into wild icons, which seriously increases your odds of landing a big win on the reels. More kitten scatters will also deliver additional free games.
Randomly triggered bonus: Known as Jolly’s Wild Re-spins, this randomly triggered bonus can occur on any wins without scatters appearing on the reels. It offers a free re-spin, with either the third, fourth, fifth or a combination of those reels turning wild. Wild reels will gradually make their way to the left of the screen offering free re-spins as they go. Once the stacked wild reels have disappeared from the leftmost reel, the bonus ends.
There is a non-progressive jackpot to be won in this mobile slot. The non-progressive prize is won when 5 wilds appear on a line and is worth 750x your total bet.
There are more than enough features in this more traditional Christmas-themed mobile slot than you would expect, and wagers are very respectable indeed. Although it may not be as widely available as you might hope, Jolly’s Gifts is a mobile slot well worth playing if you can find it, and happen to love seasonal slot machines.
