Few would argue that Christmas is the best holiday of the year. How can you go wrong with Christmas? You get time off from work, you get loads of presents, you get to spend time with your family and loved one and, you get to eat real good food. And don’t get us started with Eggnog…. Did you know – although eggnog is considered these days as an American-Canadian grown-up drink for the holidays, it was actually originated in England. As many other traditions rooted in United Kingdoms that crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the United States.
So cheer the new Christmas-themed Scratch Card, Christmas Cheer. It will feel immediately familiar and comforting to you, as it features the iconic Santa’s sleigh, sans-reindeers. The sleigh is stacked high with carefully wrapped presents just waiting for you to scratch them open.
This Scratch Card game is Christmasy-simple. Fixed odds, single bet line and a low volatility rate. But Big Wins – ho ho ho – can go up to 10,000 times the ticket price. Christmas may come only once a year, but the Big Wins here continue coming and coming. Give it a try and see for yourself.
How To Play
You know the drill already – first on the agenda is setting your bet, the ‘ticket cost’, using the + and – signs at the lower left corner of the screen. The bet range is between 0.5 to 20€. And that’s pretty much it. Time to play.
Click the PLAY button at the lower right corner of the screen and you are ready to scratch. First you want to scratch the WINNING SYMBOLS, just out of curiosity, to see what you are up against. Next scratch the presents stacked on the sleigh, in no particular order.
If you get a match, between the two winning symbols and the presents on the sleigh – you win! (You can see your wins accumulating in the little WINS window at the bottom of the screen.) Now here is when it gets even more Christmasy:
– If you get a STAR symbol you just doubled your prize. Nice.
– If you get a PRESENT symbol you win all 10 prizes. Even nicer.
Before & After – it’s time to cheer!
Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Santa’s Sleigh
Throughout the centuries Santa and his sleigh have pulled jaw-dropping achievements, no doubt about that. Covering the entire world in a single night on a single reindeer-charge, individual chimney slidings included, not to mention the fantastic amounts of gifts carried on board. (Special kudos for Santa’s administrative department for orchestrating this yearly epic night, and let’s not forget the never-tiring team of buyers!)
All this preparation goes into the night of Christmas eve when Santa takes his place at the helm of this unmatched operation to deliver, to all of us, a gift, a present, and not just any random one, but exactly the one we want. This is truly phenomenal.
