A Winter’s Tale from Blue Guru

By Dave Sawyer, Last updated Sep 5, 2023

This week seems to be the week for new festive themed slot game releases, with Blue Guru Games quickly following Pragmatic Play and their release of Bigger Bass Blizzard Christmas Catch and getting in on the act also, with the release of A Winter’s Tale.

The five reel, 20 payline game doles out piles of presents in the form of re-spins and free spins. This mellow, medium volatility game comes with a tidy top prize of over 1,400 times the bet, and plenty of wins along the way.

Blue Guru’s game designers went full throttle on all things Yuletide. ‘A Winter’s Tale’ is just what it says on the tin – an unapologetic tribute to Christmas, embracing every seasonal symbol, and providing the perfect tonic for the chilly winter months.

While spinning the beautifully frosted reels, you might forget what you came for, but the frequently triggered special features will quickly jog your memory.

The re-spin feature means that every scatter symbol will trigger an instant re-spin, giving you multiple chances to cash in for free each time you spin the reels. Fill the flickering lantern with scatters to unwrap a huge pile of gift-wrapped prizes that include multipliers, cash wins or instant access to the Sticky Wilds Bonus Game. This free games feature is massively rewarding, thanks to Wilds that lock in place throughout the spins.

If you don’t want to wait around, the Bonus Buy feature allows you to buy into both the Sticky Wild Bonus Game and the Gift-Wrapping Bonus. The game’s overall effect is magically interactive and immersive.

Kick start your Christmas today with ‘A Winter’s Tale’, and spin for wins against an animated backdrop, where snow is falling, lights are twinkling, and Santa’s pulling a sleigh piled with gifts to a cheerful Yuletide soundtrack.

Kristian Hassall, Commercial Manager at Blue Guru said: “We wanted to create a seasonal slot that welcomes all the warmth and wistful nostalgia that a traditional Christmas brings.”

“A Winter’s Tale transports players to a true Nordic festive atmosphere, slipping in frequent opportunities to maximise wins on every single spin.”
