You always know that a online pokie has been successful when it produces a sequel. You’ll therefore know a game is extra good when it produces a third in a series! Naughty or Nice III continues the cheeky fun brought to you by the first two games, where Santa is joined by the ‘naughty girl’ and the ‘nice girl’, much to the annoyance of his ever-suffering wife. This time around, the duo are working at a car wash in their skimpy outfits, with bubbles everywhere. Seems that Santa is enjoying himself much more than his wife is!
The game is filled with features based around the two ladies, while progressive jackpots can give any spin an unexpected but happy resolution. Here are the best moments of the game:
Land 3, 4 or 5 Naughty or Nice III title symbols anywhere on the reels and you’ll trigger the feature, as well as winning immediate pay outs of 2x, 10x or 100x your total stake respectively. You’ll now get to choose whether to play the feature with the brunette naughty girl who wears Daisy Dukes and a Santa Hat, or the blonde nice girl who washes the car in a blue two-piece bikini.
You’ll be awarded 7 free spins and any time you land a win with your chosen wild, the pay-out will be doubled, while you’ll also gain one of the two following bonuses when you play the spins:
As well as landing the features above using the scatter symbol, you can also enter them when being awarded the ‘Lucky Feature Trigger’. This occurs completely at random and will see you enter the naughty girl bonus, the nice girl bonus or be awarded 10 free spins (during which you can entry into the other features too).
Santa is the highest paying symbol in the game, worth 500 coins for hitting the maximum five in a row. His enraged wife (so enraged that she has snapped her rolling pin in half) is next on the pay table, worth 300 coins. A dog with play reindeer horns is joined by a Christmas gift box and a car wash sign in completing the themed symbols, while playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the low end of the pay table. In all, this RealTime Gaming designed pokie features 30 win-lines on a 5×3 reel set up.
After any spin you can be randomly awarded either the major or minor progressive jackpots. These impressive prizes are more likely to head your way the higher the stakes you play for.
This game plays out on a sun-kissed island, possibly as far removed from the traditional Christmas feel as you can have. Santa seems happy though, lounging in a deck chair sipping something strong. The naughty and nice girls stand full size either side of the reels adding a sense of fun to the game, while a fifties style rock and roll soundtrack only adds to the overall atmosphere of the game.
If you’re the type of pokie players who enjoys some cheeky humour, Naughty or Nice III is the game for you. The striking central characters of the game command your attention throughout, while playing a leading role in all of the feature. As the wilds, the two ladies can give any spin a winning boost, while you’ll get to choose for the whole of the feature, with added wilds and scatters in play. The addition of two progressive jackpots only adds further excitement to each spin.
