Who is Jolly? Is this a festive game, given the mention of gifts, or is there a different theme in store here? The logo for the slot from Side City gives away very little, except a nice wrapped gift. So, we must look to the game itself to find out more. It does indeed turn out to be a Christmas game, with a girl called Jolly who might just appear as an expanded wild on a reel. If she does this, you get up to five respins. The last two respins you get will automatically trigger a win, so this is a lovely feature to unlock.
There are gifts and cute toys over the reels here, and the four suits you will see in card games, too. The game also delivers a 5 x 4 appearance rather than a 5 x 3 one, so there is a lot going on. The cute character wearing a Santa hat is the scatter, and this needs to appear on every odd reel to award 12 free games.
Jolly’s Gifts also has a mystery gifts feature, where these gifts can be replaced by other symbols. If you are playing some free games, you will get more wilds in place of the usual gift boxes. With 40 lines to try and win on, the look of the Jolly’s Gifts festive slot game is very appealing.
