Yule Be Rich Slot Machine Review

Created by 1×2 Gaming, Yule Be Rich is a 5 reel, 9 pay line slot machine
that’s found in online casinos.

The word yule was originally used by Germanic people to refer to wild hunts
and the Norse / Germanic god Odin. But over time, Nordic people began referring
to Christmas and its religious elements as yule.

Today, it’s used in many English speaking countries to refer to Christmas.

Yule Be Rich puts a clever spin on this word by combining it with what every
slots player hopes to do – get rich.

But does this game have more to offer than just a cunning title?

Find out as we look at Yule Be Rich’s atmosphere, music, animations,
paytable, graphics, bonuses, betting options, and rules. We’ll also discuss how
this game compares to other Christmas themed slot machines.

Yule Be Rich Slot Machines Overview

Atmosphere / Background

Yule Be Rich opens with a fun introduction video that shows Santa Claus
pushing his sleigh to the top of a snowy peak, then flying through the air to
deliver presents. He drops one of these presents on the snowy mountain as he
flies by, and then you’re taken to the reels.

The reels are transparent, allowing you to see all of the background, which
features a snowy hill and several snow covered evergreen trees.

You’ll also see Santa and his reindeer off in the distance flying across the
top of the screen.

The Yule Be Rich title above the reels has its letters light up, while
sparkles fall from the sides of the reels.

The pay line markers on both sides of the reels are encased in Christmas
bulbs, which is just another element that adds holiday cheer.

Also note that you’ll see the following phrases scroll across the bottom of
the reels: All I want for Christmas is… Cash; Curl up by the fire and play
slots; Have you made a yule log?; Last Christmas I gave you Free Spins; We’ve
got slots wrapped up; What do Three Kings pay?; What’s in Santa’s sack?; Who’s
coming down your chimney; and You won’t believe your mince pies.

Everything involved with the background and reels combines to create a fun,
cartoon like Christmas scene that offers holiday spirit.

Music and Sound Effects

Throughout the game, you’ll hear an instrumental version of “Jingle Bells,”
which is played by a piano and xylophone. While this is yet another nice touch,
it would be good if Yule Be Rich featured a couple more songs too.

During winning payouts, you’ll hear a jingle sound followed by a high pitched
bell. If you lose, you’ll hear another jingle that still feels like it indicates
a win.

Given that there are only two different sound effects, Yule Be Rich lacks
variety in this department.

Animations

Animations during winning payouts include: letters jumping up and down, the
gingerbread man’s arm falling off and reattaching, the snowflake spinning
around, the reindeer jumping head first into the snow with his antlers, and the
snowman sweeping the ground.

We’ve seen 1×2 Gaming slot machines that have a single animation for every
payout, so it’s good that this one features some variety.

Yule Be Rich Pay Table and Graphics

To access the pay table, click the orange button in the lower right hand
corner. Upon choosing the pay table, you’ll see the following symbols and
payouts.

Game Symbols:

Snowflake Wild

The snowflake is wild and substitutes for any symbol except
the elf and Santa to form winning payouts. It also multiplies any payout that it
helps form 2x.

Santa Scatter

Dressed in his customary red suit and sporting a white beard,
Santa triggers free spins when he appears 3 or more times in a win line.

Elf Scatter

Wearing a traditional red and green elf outfit, Santa’s little
helper is a special scatter symbol who only shows up during the free spins
bonus.

Angel

Wearing a white gown with a halo of his head, this angel delivers 750
coins for 5 symbols, 200 for 4 symbols, 45 for 3, and 10 for 2.

Reindeer

Standing on two hooves like a person, the reindeer pays 500 coins
for 5 symbols, 150 for 4 symbols, 40 for 3, and 7 for 2.

Snowman

Carrying a broom and wearing a green stocking hat, this snowman
offers 300 coins for 5 symbols, 75 for 4 symbols, 32 for 3, and 6 for 2.

Gingerbread Man

Ornately decorated with icing, the gingerbread man pays 100
coins for 5 symbols, 40 coins for 4 symbols, 24 for 3, and 10 for 2.

A

The A pays 80 coins for 5 symbols, 40 for 4, and 22 for 3.

K

This letter offers 80 coins for 5 symbols, 32 for 4, and 20 for 3.

Q

The Q delivers 70 coins for 5 symbols, 26 for 4, and 9 for 3.

J

The J pays 60 coins for 5 symbols, 24 for 4, and 7 for 3.

10

The 10 pays 45 coins for 5 symbols, 20 for 4, and 7 for 3.

9

The 9 offers 20 coins for 5 symbols, 10 for 4, and 4 for 3.

Symbol Graphics

The symbol graphics are above average, with the angel, Santa, snowflake,
snowman, letters, and numbers offering good detail.

The reason why we only rate them above average is because the elf,
gingerbread man, and reindeer are merely adequate.

One thing that we really like with the symbols is how 1×2 Gaming put Santa
hats on all of the letters and numbers. Many other slots use letter and numbers
for low paying symbols with no embellishments.

Yule Be Rich Slot Bonus Features

Yule Be Rich features a standard amount of bonuses, with free spins and a
special elf scatter comprising the list. You can take a closer look at both of
these features below.

Free Spins

Unlike most slot machines, the Santa scatter symbol must appear in a win line
to trigger free spins. 1×2 Gaming’s word for word explanation is as follows:
“Santa symbols are win line scatter symbols so [they] do need to be on win lines
but do not need to be on consecutive reels to pay free spins.”

5 Santa symbols in a win line trigger 25 free spins, 4 symbols award 15
spins, and 3 award 5 spins.

While the top number of free games that you can get is generous, you won’t
receive any multipliers like in other 1×2 Gaming slots. Of course, this can be
explained by the fact that you get a 2x multiplier for snowflake wild payouts.

Elf Scatter Symbol

One perk that you get during free spins is the elf scatter, which only
appears during the bonus round.

The benefit of the elf scatter is that he forms payouts no matter where he
lands on the reels. The elf offers the following prizes: 200 coins for 5
symbols, 100 for 4 symbols, 30 for 3, and 10 for 2.

Betting Options

You can change pay lines from 1 9, coin size from $0.01 to $0.50, and coins
per line from 1 5. This makes the minimum wager worth $0.01 and the max bet
$22.50.

You can auto spin the reels with your selected betting options by clicking
auto bet below the reels. This gives you several preset options of 5, 10, 25,
50, and 100 spins, or you can use the arrows to pick between 1 and 100 spins.

If you want to quickly max out the pay lines and coins per line, click the
Max Bet.

Other Options

The menu in the lower left hand corner offers several options that you might
find helpful.

The circular arrow button lets you review your last 100 bets if you’re
playing for real money.

The speaker button lets you adjust the music / sound effects volume to your
liking.

And the gear button allows you to change the graphics setting to high,
medium, or low, which is good for slower smartphones / PCs.

Found on the lower right hand side, another option is Show Win lines, which
shows your active pay lines across the reels.

Win Frequency

We played Yule Be Rich for 300 350 spins and found the win frequency to be
average for a 9 pay line slot.

Most of your wins will consist of low paying letters / numbers and the
reindeer, combined with the snowflake wild. While we won a fair number of times
with the letters, we also experienced cold streaks that lasted 8 10 spins.

Some of the 1×2 Gaming slots that we’ve played see free spins triggered more
often than usual. But this isn’t the case with Yule Be Rich since free spins
only occurred once in our session.

Return to Player RTP

RTP for Yule Be Rich is 95.31%, which is average for an online slot.

This doesn’t surprise us, considering that the win frequency is average, and
the free games don’t happen often.

The game’s top payout, 750 coins, which occurs with 5 angels, is also low for
a slot machine.

If your favorite thing about slot machines is winning big and often, then
Yule Be Rich isn’t great in this aspect.

Game Rules

To see the game rules, you click the question mark in the lower left hand
menu. Below you can see the main rules listed on this screen:

  • Yule Be Rich uses a UK certified random number generator to ensure that
    all spins are random and culminate in 95.31% RTP.
  • Wins are multiplied by your line stake and coins per line i.e. 10 coin
    win x $0.10 x 5 coins per line = $5.00 payout.
  • The max win in Yule Be Rich is €/$10,000, which occurs when you get 5
    angels 750 coins and use/get the following: a $0.50 coin size, 5 coins per
    line, and a 2x snowflake multiplier.
  • When 2 or more wins occur in the same pay line, only the highest paying
    win is delivered.
  • The wild symbol doesn’t substitute for the Santa scatter to trigger free
    spins, or the elf (bonus) to complete scatter payouts.

Comparison to Other Christmas themed Slot Machines

Christmas is one of the most crowded niches in the online gaming world. That
said, how does Yule Be Rich compare to other games in this genre?

Find out as we compare Yule Be Rich to Microgaming’s Deck the Halls and Rival
Gaming’s The Naughty List.

Deck the Halls Slot Machines

This 5 reel, 30 pay line slot takes a traditional approach to Christmas with
garland strewn around the reels, and symbols like bells, evergreen trees,
pinecones, presents, ornaments, reindeer, stockings, and turkey.

The background graphics are decent, but a notch below what Yule Be Rich
offers. The symbol graphics aren’t as rich, but they do a good job of detailing
a home that’s decorated for the holidays.

Further Christmas spirit is added by the music, which features “The Twelve
Days of Christmas” playing during the main game. You can also look forward to
different jingles during winning payouts.

Bonuses in this game include stacked symbols with a 2x multiplier, along with
15 free spins that multiply wins 2x. It’s possible to get 4x wins during free
games thanks to the stacked wilds.

Overall, Deck the Halls is a quality slot that’s become a holiday classic.
But it’s a rung below Yule Be Rich due to its age and run of the mill theme.

Naughty or Nice? Slot Machines

If you’re looking for a Christmas slot with an edge, then this 5 reel, 50 pay
line game has everything you need.

Naughty or Nice? shows Santa’s wild side by showcasing a blonde Nice Girl and
brunette Naughty Girl in skimpy Christmas lingerie.

Both of these women serve as wild symbols and dance around to rock music when
they appear in winning pay lines.

Mrs. Clause isn’t happy about Santa ogling these women either since she’s
featured with a rolling pin. Other symbols include traditional holiday elements
like bulbs, presents, reindeer, and a wreath.

Features include a progressive jackpot and free spins, where you pick either
the Nice or Naughty Girl as your wild symbol beforehand.

The graphics in this slot are solid, but we still place them beneath Yule Be
Rich’s visuals.

The true reason to play Naughty or Nice? is its risque theme – something that
Santa’s not usually associated with.

As evidenced by the fact that this game is part of a trilogy, The Naughty
List & Naughty or Nice – Spring Break, this edgy concept has proven very
popular.

Conclusion

Yule Be Rich may not be perfect, but it has enough elements to make it worth
putting in your slots rotation during Christmas time.

This game preps you for entertainment with a short introduction video
featuring Santa. You’re then taken to the reels, where several things in the
background combine to create a fun atmosphere.

We also like how Jingle Bells is playing in the background, although it would
be nice to have another 1 to 2 songs along with more sound effects during
winning payouts.

The symbol graphics aren’t amazing, but the background makes up for this.

Aspects that we rate as merely average include the bonuses, win frequency,
and RTP. This isn’t a game for those who want the most detailed bonuses and / or
frequent winning sessions.

But if you’re just looking for an enjoyable Christmas themed slot, then Yule
Be Rich is worth playing due to its atmosphere, background graphics, and
animations.
