Before you dive in to get your presents, it would be best to understand what you can get from Father Christmas this year! So read our review and find out if this game is going to be naughty or nice!
Yule Be Rich Gameplay
The beauty of 1×2 Gaming’s Yule Be Rich is its simplicity. It has 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 paylines, and 13 symbols. 6 of the symbols are low-value playing cards (9, 10, J, Q, K and A), 4 are high-value symbols (the Gingerbread Man, the Snowman, the Reindeer and the Angel). The Wild is the Snowflake, Santa is the Scatter and so is the Elf (there are two different Scatters in this game!).
To play this game, you start by setting your bet. This requires you to do 3 things:
- Choose how many paylines you want activated (1 to 9)
- Select the number of coins (1 to 5)
- Choose the coin value (0.01 to 2)
You can make these selections on the Lines, Coins and Coin Value tabs that are located at the bottom of the game screen.
While making your bet, you should keep this game’s RTP and volatility in mind. Yule Be Rich is a medium variance game with an RTP of 95.31%. This means that you will not get those explosive and big wins you may get from a high-RTP, high-variance game. What you will get are frequent small wins and some big ones.
The strategy that works best with this video slot machine is to stretch your budget so that you can spin the reels as many times as possible. The more you spin, the higher your chances of winning are. However, at the end of the day, this is a game of luck, so there will be times you will not much, and there will be other times when you win quite a bit. So, if you are losing, it is best to come back and try your luck another time.
You win at Yule Be Rich when you land at least 3 symbols of a kind along a payline on consecutive reels from the left to the right. The highest wins come from the high-value symbols landing 5 along a payline.
Additional Game Features
This game may be simple, but that doesn’t mean Yule Be Rich doesn’t have any special features. In fact, it’s the special features of this game that win you that £10k per spin prize! Let’s find out more about them:
The Wild in this game is the Snowflake symbol. It can replace any other symbol to form winning combinations. It cannot replace two symbols – the two Scatters. If you land a winning combination that includes the Wild, then a 2x multiplier doubles your wins!
When you land the Santa Scatter on the reels, you can trigger the Free Spins feature. However, you need to land at least 3 of this symbol to activate this bonus feature.
To activate this mode of the game, you need to get one of the following:
- 3 Santa Scatters, which will win you 5 Free Spins,
- 4 Santa Scatters, which will win you 10 Free Spins and
- 5 Santa Scatters, which will win you 15 Free Spins.
You cannot trigger more Free Spins in this bonus game, so after you have finished this cycle, you will once again go back to the base game.
The Elf Scatter only appears during the Free Spins mode and it can appear anywhere on the reels. This symbols activates the another bonus feature in the game – cash prizes.
So, if 2 Elf Scatters appear anywhere on a winning line, then you can win 10x your bet. If you land 3 Elf Scatters on a winning line, then you win 30x your bet. 4 Elf Scatters on the reels win you 100x your bet and if you get really lucky and land 5 Elf Scatters, then you win 200x your bet.
Yule Be Rich Game Design
1×2 Gaming’s focus on simplicity extends from Yule Be Rich’s gameplay to its game design too. The background is a snowy landscape with fir trees laden with snow. You can see the silhouette of Santa flying through the sky with his sled and reindeer. The payline numbers are Christmas baubles.
The low-value symbols are the red playing cards, but designed to reflect the Christmas spirit with their red and white Christmas hats! And the high-value symbols are symbols of the Noel – crafted with care and look like images you would find in a children’s Christmas book!
The first stanza of Jingle Bells is the soundtrack, which is appropriately Christmassy. The sounds are crystalline, as if snowflakes have been brought to life.
All in all, we love the game design, the graphics, the sounds and music!
1×2 Gaming has created a simple but fun to play video slots game in Yule Be Rich. While you won’t see massive wins with this machine, you will get steady wins and a £10,000 prize on a single spin is not a bad Christmas present!
We would definitely recommend this game to everyone, especially those who love the Christmas season!
