Reindeer Readies

Christmas shops keep their doors open 364 days a year (closed on December 25 presumably) so why can’t a Christmas-themed mobile slots game spin all year round as well? That is the thinking at Probability which has produced Reindeer Readies.

Reindeer Readies is a five-reel mobile slots game with 25 paylines. You can begin the merry making at just 0.05 coins and continue up to a top bet of 1.00 coin per line for a maximum play of 25.00 coins. There is no progressive jackpot waiting riding along in Santa’s sleigh but the in-game jackpots bring so many coins that jolly old St. Nick will not be able to squeeze down a chimney with the full bag. An Auto Spin option is available to tap so the red-suited one will be able to make all his appointed rounds.


It was Clement C. Moore who first lifted a team of flying caribou from the frozen tundra of the Arctic and presented them to Santa Claus to power his toy-laden sleigh in the 1823 poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas.” There was originally a team of eight with the special power to elevate. Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder and Blixen had the stage all to themselves for more than a century until a copywriter for a chain of American department stores created a new reindeer, one with a shiny red nose, in 1939. Since then Rudolph has gotten all the star billing and the original eight live on like back-up singers behind Diana Ross in the Supremes.

The cartoony Rudolph is the only cuddly caribou to make an appearance in Reindeer Readies and he is the star. The setting is awash with the images of the season including snowmen, elves, ornaments, bells, gingerbread men, baked goods, and turtle doves. A candle burning down to its wick is likely to remind you that you have not finished your holiday shopping yet, even if you are spinning the reels in August.


The biggest scorer on the pay table is reserved for the Christmas tree, the great German contribution to the festivities. Here the star-stopped spruce can return as much as 3000X your original stake when five spread across a payline. Even just two will light up your bank with 20X your bet. Who says Christmas comes but once a year?

Santa is as always ever busy, playing the part of the Wild and substituting where needed to make winning combinations. He is too busy to multiply your prize, however, and will not bring you any coins whether you have been good or bad on his own.

The red-nosed reindeer is the Scatter in Reindeer Readies and he can light up the reels anywhere at any time. If a small herd of three, four, or five graze the reels you will be awarded six, eight or ten free games, respectively. During bonus time all awards are doubled up so that Yule tree is now lit up to the possible jackpot of 6000X your stake. Reindeer Readies is certainly the mobile slots game Shane MacGowan would have been playing in the drunk tank in New York City.
