It’s the fourth version of the Take 5 slot machine that we’re seeing, but this time we’re looking at the one that we’ll be enjoying during the winter holidays, so there is nothing to complain about. It’s a Gamomats slot machine with big payouts and with big wagers, with some very interesting features for a 3-reel game and with unique things to offer.
Take 5: Christmas Edition will have the 3 reels & 5 lines which have become so popular these days, but there will be some special things to note as well about it. It’s the features and the Win Repeater option that will make you happy in this case, but if you take that away, most of the time you’re going to find a very simple slot. It’s going to pay big though, as much as $500,000, provided that you have the budget to take the game that far.
Betting and Prizes
The thing that’s very cool about Take 5: Christmas Edition is that everyone can play it, no matter what kind of budget they have to work with. The minimum wager allowed will be as low as $0.50, where each line receives $0.10. Go to the maximum line bet, of $500, and you’re looking at a maximum wager of $2,500 per spin. It’s a fairly impressive betting range, and high rollers will love having this option.
Rewards can look pretty good, with as much as 200x the stake paid out per spin. The best thing is that the lower paying symbols can benefit from the Repeater feature, which gives the player up to 5 times the original prize when he fills a screen with fruit symbols. More on that below, if you want to learn how it works.
Even the RTP is pretty good with Take 5, and with the entire series actually, not just with the Christmas Edition. It’s set to 96.11%, and that’s the amount that the game is calculated to offer over millions of rounds, so not for just one session.
Take 5 Slot Features
When it comes to your regular spins in Take 5, most of the time you’re not going to get anything from it feature wise. It’s a very simple slot machine, one without wilds, free spins or multipliers. The only feature of the game comes in when you have a screen filled with fruit symbols. At that point, with 5 winning combinations formed, the game will trigger the Win Repeater feature.
The Win Repeater will give you a wheel of sorts, which spins to give you up to 4 additional wins of the same value. To give you an example, a screen filled with Plums will deliver you a win of up to 40x the stake ($100,000). The Win Repeater can give you up to four additional wins, taking the total payout to 200x the stake ($500,000).
Theme & Design
The action might get interesting at certain moments, but the theme that’s used is a very simple one. It relies on fruits (plums, oranges, lemons and cherries), along with bells, stars and 7s. The difference in the Christmas Edition is that these symbols are now covered by snow. The background image is also Christmas themed.
Take 5: Christmas Edition is a good game to play if you like the series, once Christmas comes around. It’s a clone of the other Take 5 game otherwise, only the graphics have changed slightly.
