A Winter’s Tale Description

The colder months are known for magic; the holidays, the glitter of frost, and Santa’s inexplicable ability to get his red rump down chimneys. It’s this atmosphere that Blue Guru Games has tried to capture in the A Winter’s Tale slot. This is a 5x4 game offering a traditional take on the Yuletide season. It's sparkly and dusted with snow - just like a Christmas card.

A Winter’s Tale is a modern video slot with a sleigh-load of features! Play with wilds, sticky wilds, multipliers, and scatters, and hope you're on Santa's nice list for the Gift Unwrapping Bonus Game. It is the ultimate test of good behaviour.

Amongst our vast selection of seasonal games, here at LeoVegas, you can find plenty of Christmas-themed games and Halloween ones, too! View them all on our dedicated online slots page or ‘strike the harp and join the chorus’ for Blue Guru Games’ A Winter’s Tale.

A Winter’s Tale Bonus Features

You'll need this video slot's scatter symbol to play its bonus games. Appearing as a wrapped present, each scatter that lands on the reels increases the tally inside the lantern to the left. Get to five and the gift unwrapping bonus game begins.

Gift Unwrapping Bonus Game

Once triggered, you’ll head to a second screen for the gift unwrapping bonus game. Here, the number of scatters you found in the base game determines how many presents you’ll get to unwrap.

A maximum of 12 gifts can be found in this mini-game, with each one containing a multiplier, a free game or an instant cash prize. This leads us directly to the next special feature, sticky wild free games.

Sticky Wild Free Games

When you unwrap free games in quantities of 1, 2, or 3, you’ll get 5, 7, or 9 Free Games during the Sticky Wild bonus round, respectively. This is also played on a new screen. Wild symbols lock to their positions here. Stuff your stocking with up to 12 prizes.

How to Win on A Winter’s Tale

As we hinted at earlier, A Winter’s Tale is a snow globe brought to digital life. Play with all the denizens of the North Pole, including the Yule goat, a traditional icon of Christmas in Scandinavian countries. The Yule goat is the most valuable symbol in A Winter's Tale, with a prize of 30.00 when you get five symbols. Find five Christmas trees and trade them in for 15.00, or win 10.00 when you get five baubles. .

The remaining four symbols are playing cards set against the backdrop of a coloured nightcap. Red (Ace) is the top position, worth 5.00 for five, while Blue (K), Pink (Q), and Green (J) pay between 4.00 and 0.10. Santa is wild and can stand in for all symbols except the gift-shaped scatter symbol.

Game Info: About A Winter’s Tale

Earlier we referred to lyrics from the classic carol ‘Deck The Halls’, but in this online slot, it’s ‘Ding Dong Merrily On High’ that plays in the background. And, while sound effects are kept to a minimum, winning combinations cause a brief, twinkling swell in the score.

A Winter’s Tale launched in time for the 2022 Christmas season, on November 30th. Drawn in watercolour, it’s a peaceful experience that’s full of festive meaning. Note the diminutive Santa (or maybe it’s an elf) dragging a sleigh in the bottom left of the screen.
