Would it be a shock if we revealed the Nutcracker itself was the wild here? We bet it wouldn't. It is powerful enough to substitute most other symbols in the game, including the toy train, the teddy bear, the mouse, and the girl. It won't replace the famous Sugar Plum Fairy though. This is the scatter.

Any bonuses to look for?

The Sugar Plum Fairy might dance into position in three or more spots on the reels of the game. If this should occur, it will grant you access to the Fairy Free Spins bonus. The amount of spins given - 10, 20, or 30 of them - depends on whether you get three, four, or five scatters. More fairies spinning into view during those free games will garner from one to 30 more free games too.

The Nutcracker can appear as a stacked wild on the middle reel during these games. Whenever this occurs, the multiplier will increase. This starts at a base value of 1x, rising as high as 10x.

Meanwhile, the stacked Nutcracker can trigger the Nutcracker Gift Bonus in the base game. Open a gift box to see how many Nutcracker Free Spins you've won - between five and 10 of them. The middle reel is wild throughout these spins.
