The Nutcracker Slots

It’s the time of year where Christmas themed slots make an appearance and The Nutcracker is one such slot from the creators at iSoftBet. The Nutcracker is played out over 5-reels and 20 pay lines and unlike many Christmas themed slots past and present there has been a tendency for creators to go mad and provide a total overload, however iSoftBet has managed to keep a great balance as it is festive but not over the top.

The Nutcracker can be played over all devices with betting starting from just 20p per spin up to £20 per spin. Players will come across the usual playing card symbols Ace through to 10 on their reels as well as a toy train, teddy bear, a girl with a toy and a mouse. The mouse is a lucrative symbol and landing 3, 4 or 5 on any one line will reward x3, x10 or x50 of the bet staked respectively.

The wild in The Nutcracker is the toy soldier and this symbol can substitute for all of the others with the exception of the scatter which is depicted by the Sugar Plum Fairy to create winning combinations. The Nutcracker provides players with two free spin features the first of which is the Fairy Free Spins where players have to land 3, 4 or 5 of the Sugar Plum Fairy on the same spin to be rewarded with 10, 20 or 30 free spins.

If they get lucky and land the Toy soldier wild fully stacked on the middle reel the multiplier goes up by one to a maximum of ten. Every time the player lands one or two scatters players receive an additional one or two spins. Landing between three and five you will then activate the free spins again which means that you have the opportunity to win up to a colossal 60 free spins in total. The other main feature is the Nutcracker Gift Bonus & Free Spins where players have to land the Nutcracker totally stacked on the third reel in the base game and they then trigger this bonus round.


Once the feature starts players need to choose from a number of gift boxes 5 – 10, and throughout the feature the stacked wild stays locked in place. Players that land a winning combination are rewarded with a streak re-spin where the winning symbols that have triggered the feature are locked in play and the re-spins continue all the time the players land matching symbols to join their existing symbol clusters.

Personally, I really enjoyed playing The Nutcracker, everything is so well executed, and the soundtrack gives the slot a truly magical feel. Having two free spin rounds is novel and do give players far more potential to win.


Whilst playing I landed the Nutcracker Gift Bonus and Free Spins feature more times than the Fairy Free Spins and I even landed five free spins which provided me with a massive x160 of my stake, not bad even if I do say so myself! With this in mind, the bigger wins will come from the Fairy Free Spins feature as this gives players the chance to win the x10 multiplier which means the pay-out could be an enormous x5,000 of the stake played.

If you love Christmas and don’t want a slot that hammers home the theme at every opportunity The Nutcracker will certainly provide enough Christmas festivities for players to enjoy. Another great slot in the spirit of Christmas is Jingle Spin from NetEnt.
