Gift Rap is a musical Christmas themed online slot game featuring a variety of children’s gifts and some rapping elves. It is a five reel slot with twenty five pay lines that was developed by Microgaming.
Gift Rap has an auto play feature which is found by clicking on the expert button. As an advanced setting, the auto play feature at top Canadian casino sites allows the reels to spin up to 500 times automatically. The spins may be stopped at any time during the game.
Bets can be placed and adjusted using the buttons below the reels where the pay lines may be activated and up to ten coins may be placed on each of the pay lines. Coin sizes range from 0.01 up to 0.50. A max bet button allows the maximum bet to be placed with one click.
The Gift Rap Regular Symbols
The five reel and three row grid features colourful graphics and cartoonlike imagery. Regular Gift Rap symbols include a teddy bear; a squeaky toy hammer; a spinning top, a toy microphone and speaker set and a wind up symbol playing monkey. The higher valued symbols include the cartoon elf rappers with a female duo and two elves rapping alone. The highest pay out for the regular symbols is 1 000 coins for five rapping elves.
All of the winning combinations containing regular symbols will only pay out if the pay line is activated and if the combination begins from the furthest left reel. It is only the paying scatter symbols that pay regardless of where the symbols are on the reels. Only the highest valued combination will pay on one pay line. Regular symbol winning combinations are multiplied by the pay line’s bet unlike the scatter that pays out an amount multiplied by the total bet.
Special Wilds and Scatter Symbols
Special symbols include a red Christmas tree bauble which acts as the wild symbol and is the highest earner paying out the jackpot prize of 6 000 coins for five in a row. The wild symbol will replace any of regular symbols when a winning combination is possible but it won’t count as either of the scatter symbols.
The online slot game has two scatter symbols which are the snow spray canister and rapping Jack Frost. The snow spray canister scatter symbol pays out scatter wins of up to 80x the total bet for five appearing on the reels. Rapping Jack Frost on the other hand is the scatter that activates the Gift Rap bonus game.
The Gift Grab Bonus Game
The Gift Rap bonus game called the gift grab is a second screen game that activates when three or more of the rapping Jack Frost’s appear on the reels. The screen displays a 5 by 6 grid of wrapped gifts and the aim is to pick as many as possible before rapping Jack Frost puts an end to the bonus game.
Every gift picked reveals a bonus coin prize. The amount of coins collected are displayed on the screen and at the end of the bonus game the amount is paid out. Just over 32 000 coins can be won during this bonus feature.
