Naughty or Nice III is the final installment in the very successful Naughty or Nice video slot series operating on the RealTime Gaming software platform. It is a 5×3 slot with 30 paylines and progressive jackpots.
Christmas always comes early when you play Naughty or Nice because the Christmas-themed slot series has the makings of a top-tier holiday classic. The fun is all the more maximized in Naughty or Nice III since the stakes are much higher this time around.
Since it is a continuation of the series, you can expect a very familiar gaming experience—the signature sultry yet playful vibe of its predecessors. Bikini-clad ladies are still the standout design elements of the game, and shirtless Santa still shows up on the reels. The control panel found below the grid was barely altered for continuity in the series.
RTG released Naughty or Nice III with the goal of keeping the fans happy, and it did not disappoint. The holiday theme is evident in the festive graphics and lively sound effects playing in the background. The animations and transitions also help build up the excitement.
Structurally, Naughty or Nice III is like a standard 5×3 slot machine. The gameplay does not ask much effort since only a few clicks are needed to run the game. However, the Naughty Girl and Nice Girl features give the game its identity and make it very interesting especially for first-time players.
The betting range is between $0.30 and $7.50. Because the wagers required are very affordable, you won’t have to worry about spending your entire Christmas bonus on this game. The maximum prize you can win from a regular game is $12,500, but you can earn more once you unlock the Minor and Major progressive jackpots.
The game has two types of Wild symbols. The Naughty Girl is the Wild that appears on the first and second reel, while the Nice Girl appears on the fourth and fifth reel. Either way, the two of them behave similarly since they replace all the other symbols adjacent to them to complete a winning combo.
The game logo acts as the Scatter symbol, which triggers free spins. At least three Scatters is needed to trigger the free spins feature. Lastly, Naughty or Nice III brings back the series’ very popular Lucky Feature that gives random prizes when activated.
