Popular iGaming software developer Habanero has kicked off the holiday season with its latest offering, Christmas Gift Rush. The 3-reel 3-row video slot flaunts the company’s Jackpot Race tool and spreads the festive cheer with its enticing visual and sound effects.
The title combines a poker-style pot with a must-drop jackpot solution and wins on the centerline activate the Nudge feature. When triggered, the reels continue to nudge until there are no new winning combinations on the screen. Unlocking three lines increases the multiplier with each nudge.
The punters can treat themselves to a Christmas gift with the in-game Enable Buy option that unlocks new features for purchase with every new spin. The festive launch marks a fairly successful year for Habanero as the company managed to increase its foothold significantly across the globe. A few notable partnerships include tier one commercial deal with Codere and Loewen Play, MarathonBet, and Rush Street.
Commenting on the launch, Habanero’s Head of Corporate Communications, Toni Karapetrov said, “We’ve left an interesting present for our patrons who wish to explore the new title in the wake of the holiday season. Christmas Gift Rush flaunts the very best of modern graphics, gameplay, and soundtracks in Habanero’s trademarked fashion. It’s a cracker of a video slot if you don’t mind me saying so myself. We wish all our partners and vendors a truly magical Christmas as we look forward to a grand year ahead”.
Christmas Gift Rush flaunts a 3×3 grid with a single payline and the ability to unlock up to three as the game progresses. Players also get a chance to uncover Nudges and multipliers while the title offers up to 400x the stake with each spin. The high-volatile title has a 96.66% RTP with a maximum payout of 2,675x your bet.
Habanero is known to overcomplicate the payout mechanism and this time too they’ve stuck to the trait. The 400x multiplier isn’t much, to begin with, although the random nudges are the saving grace. Furthermore, the game arrives with four RTP settings with the highest being 97.87% and the lowest at 91.95%.
Christmas Gift Rush doesn’t have too many novel features to highlight. Payline expansion is the only interesting feature. Players start the first round with a single payline and as a winning combination forms, Nudges are triggered to move the reels around. This expands the number of paylines to three at most. Once no new combinations form, the bonus disappears.
Habanero just announced a partnership with LeoVegas casinos that introduces its entire portfolio to the Italian market. Commenting on the subject, Habanero’s Head of Business Development in Europe, Arcangelo Lonoce said, “We are delighted to launch our portfolio in Italy with a renowned operator. We hope to expand our commercial footprint beyond regional borders soon”.
The latest developments further strengthen the studio’s position in the region as they claim they’re now live with a majority of local operators in Italy.
