Welcome to the North Pole

The slot is located in the North Pole with a white background of snow-covered hills, polar bears and mountains, but's that's not all you'll find!

So what did I think of Polar Paws?

Polar Paws had arrived in time for Christmas of 2019 along with other slots such as Santa vs Rudolph from Netent. The game has balanced volatility, but the odds of payouts of 40x or more are 1 in 209. The odds of winning 100x or more are 1 in 1,487. In short, you want to play this one for fun and not necessarily because of the impressive payouts. The extra spins are tough to trigger but are probably the best way of collecting higher amounts.

Big win on Polar Paws

If I were you, then I would probably give this game a pass. If you're looking for a Christmas slot, then why not have a look at Secrets of Christmas from Netent instead.

This medium volatility slot has an RTP of 96.84%.
