About Fat Santa
Fat Santa is a fun, Christmas-themed slot that is sure to become an evergreen in the slots lobby. The charming snowy cottage and trees set the scene along with Santa flying in on his sleigh to the tune of a festive soundtrack. This is a classic slot with some wild elements. The base game is played over five reels and five rows, with suitably Christmassy elements as symbols. The symbols can appear stacked, enhancing your potential for a big win. Lower value symbols are Christmas baubles, with higher paying symbols represented by gifts, reindeer, snowmen, and Christmas elves. The Santa is a scatter and yields an impressive 20x multiplier for five across the reels.
There is a free spins feature in which Santa gulps down pies and grows in size, giving more opportunities to make winning combinations. When Santa is not downing pies, he flies in on his sleigh and delivers pies that act as wilds in the next spin.
The maximum win possible is up to 6,400x your stake, so when playing at the maximum stake, you could potentially land 160,125 coins.

Fat Santa has some great bonus features available throughout the game.
Free Game Feature
During the base game, landing a Santa symbol and a Christmas pie symbol triggers the free game feature. Santa will march across the screen and eat the pie, adding to the Christmas Pie Meter on the right.
As the Christmas Pie Meter fills, Santa grows in size, and free spins are awarded. To grow, Santa needs to eat a specified number of pies.

He starts at 1 X 1, grows to 2 X 2, then 3 X 3 until he grows at Level Five to 5 X 5 and fills the entire screen. For each free spin left, Santa gives you a huge Christmas gift of 1,000x your bet for each spin.
