We don’t want to run the risk of getting a large lump of Newcastle coal in our stocking… but did you also notice that Santa is looking “jollier” than usual?

Well, he definitely does and it’s all due to his new pokie, Big Santa. Packing more punch than a spiked Chrissy eggnog and with more ways to win than a Boxing Day raffle, this game is all about maximising your holiday cheer.

There’s a cool Oversized Symbols feature that we’ve never seen before. Plus, a hearty looking Santa who has spent the whole year eating. But don’t let his plump silhouette or the cartoony vibe fool you. Big Santa will definitely ring your bells!

Play it now by sledding over to the Fair Go lobby. Just remember to pick up that new game bonus gift we left under the tree. It’ll help increase your winning chances and make this one Aussie Christmas you won’t soon forget!


Christmas is a time for lighthearted fun and Big Santa really takes that to heart. It’s nothing like some of the more serious new pokies we recently released. Instead, it’s cute and cuddly with an almost innocent atmosphere.

That being said, there’s more to Big Santa than just Chrissy tunes and red-cheeked elves. It’s high volatility, which means that the wins are lucrative when they come. You can also play up to 25-paylines and enjoy a 50,000-coin top award that’s anything but stingy.

As for the actual gameplay, there’s nothing particularly complicated about it. Just spin the reels, watch the symbols whirl and cross your fingers for an early present. Who knows? You might get lucky and trigger the Oversized Symbols feature… but we’ll talk more on that later.

Finally, the background is a charming little Chrissy scene complete with snow-dusted rooves and a glistening tree. So obviously this game ain’t set in Australia, otherwise there would be bindi-infested backyards and dry gums trees instead.


Unwrapped presents, myriad trinkets and gifts plus Chrissy food and Mrs Claus all appear as various low and high-paying symbols in Big Santa.

Then there’s the Rudolph wild that can substitute for other symbols to form generous winning combos and the Gift Bag scatter. This symbol pays when it appears anywhere on the gameboard. When this happens, wins are multiplied by the total bet and added to your line wins.

Worth mentioning are the Oversized Symbols, which are something we’ve never come across. How they work is pretty much in the name – both wild Rudolphs and the highest paying symbols can appear in 1x1, 2x2 or 3x3 dimensions on the gameboard!

Obviously, this means that they replace other symbols to level up your odds of winning. Because there’s nothing like an expanding symbol to make it really feel like Christmas.

Bonus rounds

So by now you’re probably thinking “Wow… Big Santa sounds awesome, but where’s the excitement”? Well, that’s a fair question. The answer is that the thrills, spills and chills are located on the Big Santa Free Games bonus round!

Free Games

The Free Game bonus round awards 10, 15 or 20 free games with win multipliers when 3, 4 or 5 Gift Bag scatters land anywhere on the gameboard. Upon being triggered, you’ll be taken to another screen, the music will change and (presumably) your adrenaline will spike!

During this round, all prizes are multiplied by the prize multiplier awarded. They’re also played at the value of the triggering spin, so don’t hold back in that base game folks. What’s more, the Free Games bonus round can be retriggered, which sets you up for additional wins so long as more scatters appear.
