Wizard Games, the slot developer, is bringing a unique twist to their Christmas-themed game this year. This time, instead of the usual setting, players are taken to Vegas for the festive season in the Naughty Nik slot. Here, Santa is a bit different, living a life filled with alcohol, drugs, and women. But presents are still part of the game, waiting for players in a Vegas nightclub setting where Santa is hosting a grand Christmas party. In this game, instead of elves and reindeer, you’ll find strippers wearing Santa hats and red bikinis. Apart from this, there’s nothing else that suggests it’s a Christmas-themed slot, given the decor has no Christmas elements. <br><br>Naughty Nik is a 5-reel, 4-row slot with 25 win lines. The symbols range from classic A-J royals to handcuffs, high heel shoes, whiskey bottles, and love letters. The highest symbols are represented by a singer and two scantily-clad women. The Wild symbol is a girl with a lollipop, which can substitute any regular symbols in winning combinations. To win, you need at least 3 matching symbols adjacently on the reels, starting from the left. The bets range from €0.25 to €7.5 per spin, making it not ideal for high-rollers.<br><br>The game operates on a medium-high volatile math model and offers three different RTP settings, with the highest being 96.02%. The lower the RTP, the lower the maximum win, with the lowest RTP offering up to 16,456x the stake. On the other hand, higher RTP values can offer almost twice as much payout. The hit rate is 31.40% across all three editions, suggesting frequent wins.<br><br>In Naughty Nik, Santa acts as the Collect symbol. When Naughty Nik appears with cash symbols, it collects all visible cash values. If multiple Naughty Nik symbols appear, prizes are collected separately for each symbol. Cash symbols can range from 1x to 1,000x the total bet. When 6 or more cash symbols appear, they trigger the Naughty Nik Respins feature. During this feature, a Wheel of Fortune spins along with the main reels, awarding additional respins or doubling up cash symbols.<br><br>Players can also opt for the Buy Feature to immediately trigger the Naughty Nik Respins at the cost of 80x the total stake, though this slightly reduces the RTP. Unlike many other Christmas-themed releases, Naughty Nik by Wizard Games offers a unique take on the theme. Its action-packed gameplay and potential for high payouts make it an exciting option. It combines popular Hold and Win mechanics with a Bonus Wheel, a combination players will likely find appealing.
