New Zealand online pokies players can get into the Christmas spirit at any time of year by playing the Gingerbread Joy slot by 1×2 Gaming. This five-reel, 25-winline online video slot brings together the magic of Christmas and – you guessed it – the yumminess of traditional Yuletide treat, gingerbread, for its festive theme.

To find out if a present awaits them under the Gingerbread Joy slot Christmas tree, players must activate at least one payline by wagering a minimum of 0.01 credits. Coin values go up to 0.50 credits and players may wager up to five coins on each of the 25 paylines. So the max bet per spin in the Gingerbread Joy slot is 62.50 credits.

By choosing to wager the 62.50 credit max bet, players can make the most of the Gingerbread Joy slot jackpot of 750 times their wager. This is achieved by landing five iced gingerbread Christmas tree cookies on a single active payline.

Tasty Treats and Other Festive Fare

The reels of the Gingerbread Joy slot are set in the middle of a pine-branch Christmas wreath, hung on a wooden door. While a merry – if monotonous – Christmas tune plays in the background, players of the Gingerbread Joy slot are treated to an assortment of gingerbread cookies and a ribboned red and white candy cane. Other Gingerbread Joy slot symbols include Christmas wreath and mistletoe.

The values of the standard Gingerbread Joy slot symbols are as follows when five of a kind are landed on a single active payline:

  • Standard iced Gingerbread heart – 20 coins
  • Plain gingerbread Christmas tree – 45 coins
  • Plain gingerbread heart – 60 coins

Gingerbread Hearts are Wild

The wild symbol in the Gingerbread Joy slot is a heart-shaped gingerbread cookie with the word “WILD” iced onto it. This Gingerbread Joy slot symbol has the valuable ability to replace any other symbol – except scatters and the special gingerbread man symbol – to help complete winning paylines.

The Starry Gingerbread Scatter

Another important symbol in the Gingerbread Joy slot at online casino is the scatter – which takes the form of an iced gingerbread star with the word “scatter” iced on it in green.

When three or more such Gingerbread Joy slot scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, players receive free spins – the number which increases with the number of scatters landed. In addition to the fact, that all free spins wins are doubled in the Gingerbread Joy slot, these bonus rounds have another special feature… The gingerbread man scatter symbol.

The Special Gingerbread Man Scatter

During free spins in the Gingerbread Joy slot, another symbol becomes active that is not available during the main game – the special gingerbread man scatter. Whenever two or more of these charming cookie chaps appear on an active Gingerbread Joy slot, players will enjoy a payout of at least seven coins. Players lucky enough to land Gingerbread Joy slot gingerbread men will rake in 400 coins and, since wins are doubled in Gingerbread Joy slot free spins, this will total a handsome 800-coin win – even more than the standard game jackpot!
