Imagine an ideal Christmas scene: children paying in freshly-fallen snow, a perfectly-made gingerbread house and scrumptious-looking turkey, an ice rink during the frosty nighttime, and even an ideally-decorated Christmas tree lighting up in countless colors. No, we’re not describing any book or movie with this theme (there are more than plenty of those), we’re talking about Microgaming’s “Happy Holidays” video slot.
Other than enjoying this splendid atmosphere, with excellent graphics and a wonderful soundtrack, you will get to revel in all of the features it offers, and possibly even get richer in the process. Oh, did we mention this 5-reel, 243-pay-line slot offers as many as 1024 ways-to-win? No? Silly us then…
And what’s more, you get to enter this winter wonderland from anywhere you wish, thanks to the fact that it’s available on any of your preferred mobile devices! Have you gotten into the Jolly Spirit yet? Don’t worry you will, just read on below!
Numerous Fuzzy Feelings + One Frosty Feature
First off, we should talk about the Wild Symbol, which here, takes on the form of the Logo of this video slot. It can replace any of the other symbols, minus the Scatter, or the Snowman (during the Free Spins).
Like many of its Microgaming predecessors, this online slot also offers 243 ways-to-win. The reason it’s so popular may be because it keeps the action going, and there’s never a dull moment to be sure! Having said all that, try not to get disappointed once you realize that it’s very hard to get any more than 5x your win in this game.
But then, practically out of nowhere, you may encounter the Frosty Feature! It randomly triggers following any of your non-winning spins. It then proceeds to freeze all of the lower-paying Symbols on your screen. Among which, the Snowman happens to be the most plentiful, and can get you 15x that of your bet, or even more! For each of the five highest-paying Symbols on this screen, you end up with instant cash! Furthermore, if, during this Special Feature, you get even just one Scatter Symbol, you’ll also be looking at Free Spins!
Speaking of Those…
3 or more of the Scatters (in the form of Golden Baubles) trigger as many as 10 of these. Like many other games of this variety, the Free Spins Rounds is exactly where the biggest (and most generous) action happens! The reason behind this is simple: you see, here you get no Multiplier, but what you do get, is a 5 x 3 reel grid transforming into a 5 x 4 one. Can you say an entire new row of possible wins and symbols? We knew you could, ho ho ho!
According to our personal player’s experience, the most we’ve gotten is about 70x that of our bet. That doesn’t mean you can’t hit bigger though, as luck is all you need! Last, but by no means least, the coin values here range from 0,01 – 10. The minimum bet per spin is as little as 0,30, while the maximum one per spin – 30 coins! As for the maximum win, it is as high as 88,000 coins!
The Season of Giving…and Winning!
To sum up briefly, even though the base game of this “Happy Holidays” slot may lack a little fun during the base game, those lovable Free Spins, which occur more often than not, make up for it in many ways! But you don’t have to take our word, you could instead choose to play for yourself on one of our top-rated online casinos. May Santa be extra generous with you this year!
