Top 5 Pokies to Play This Christmas


It might be heating up temperature wise, but everyone is on the countdown to Christmas and chilling out!

With only a couple of weeks left to go, now is the time to soak up the Christmas spirit and enjoy the merriment by playing some Christmas themed online pokies!

It’s not a new theme of course, and you don’t necessarily have to play Christmas themed pokies at Christmas time, but we all have to agree; it’s the best time to play them.

Today, has compiled a fantastic list of recommended online pokies for you to try at Christmas, if you haven’t tried them already. All recommended pokies can be accessed at most of the top Australian online casinos.

In the list, there’s an assortment of software providers as well, to mix up the selection a little bit, but of course (and perhaps a little predictable…) top casino games provider Netent comes in at Number 1 with their new release of ‘Secrets of Christmas Pokies’3

Best Christmas Themed Pokies Are:

  1. Secrets of Christmas Pokies (Netent)

It’s impossible to get more ‘Christmassy” than Netent’s Secrets of Christmas Pokies.  Designed with 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 fixed pay lines, the game is the epitome of Christmas. On the reels you have Santa himself (Wild) as well as holly wreaths, candles, and stockings full of presents.

The in-game features are all about the free spins, which when activated, the background will shift to a burning fireplace which sets a very cosy and warm scene. Before the free spins feature actually starts, you’ll get to pick from 3 sets of toys which will reward you with even more in game features, including extra free spins, multipliers and expanding reels. Secrets of Christmas Pokies is not a game to miss this Christmas time!

  1. Scrooge Pokies (Microgaming)

The Dickensian themed Scrooge Pokie by Microgaming is the opposite of the famous tale of which this pokie machine is based on. It’s actually pretty generous and that’s just perfect for Christmas!

Scrooge Pokies is designed with 5 reels and 50 pay lines. As with most other online pokies, some symbols are more lavish than others, with wins being proportional to their rarity.

It’s the free spins feature which is the showstopper here: every time you get a winning combination, you’re asked to select one of the symbols on the winning pay line. It will either add a free spin to your ‘bank’ of collected free spins, or it will move the date forward by one day. Once the day reaches December 25th, you can enter the free spins bonus and cash all of the free spins you’ve collected. What’s more, each free spins also benefits from a 2x multiplier.

  1. Merry Xmas Pokies (Play N Go)

Merry Xmas Pokies is also a fantastic looking game from Swedish games makers Play ‘N Go and is decked out in a very traditional Christmas format. There’s holly and mistletoe on the reels and a snowy backdrop and a fabulous Christmas soundtrack.

Merry Xmas Pokies offers a ‘Prize Bonus’ feature, which is where you’re given the option to choose from 3 Christmas presents. One of these presents is where you can win up to 150 times your stake. Merry Xmas Pokies keeps in the traditional Christmas theme very well, plus offers some epic win opportunities.

  1. Secret Santa Pokies (Microgaming)

Secret Santa is a 1024 ways to win online pokie game from Microgaming. Secret Santa Pokie offers icons on the reels of everything you associate with Christmas: a roasting fire, Christmas dinner, Christmas pudding – it’s extremely Christmassy and traditional.  ‘Secret Santa’ is playing on the fun game which uses the same name: it has seven different mystery features that are won randomly.

  1. Fruit Shop Christmas Edition (Netent)

Last but no means least, Fruit Shop: Christmas Edition! Fruit Shop Pokies is a popular game from Netent. Last year, they gave us a Christmas version, the only the difference is they’ve added a free spins feature to this game (Plus lots of wintery imagery too).

Land 2 or 3 Cherries and you will be awarded with 1 free spin, 4 Cherries will award you 2 free spins, and 5 cherries will award 5 free spins! If you loved the original version of this Netent game, then you’re going to love this version!
