The Top Bonuses For the Happy Holidays Slot.
This is the latest festive slot from Microgaming. The holiday season is a busy time of year for them I guess, as this game follows in the footsteps of other Christmas and New Year slots like Santa Paws, Secret Santa and our personal favourite- the Deck the Halls slot machine.
This game should get you into the festive spirit and it’s calm background music should reduce your stress levels if you have been running around madly buying presents and getting ready!
It’s a 243 Ways to Win game like Untamed Bengal Tiger and its sister slot Untamed Giant Panda. Or a newer 243 Ways game where you can switch between Survivor Mode and Zombie Mode is the Lost Vegas Slot. In theory, you can win up to 88,000 in the free spins round which is triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols (the Christmas Bauble symbol). Once you get into the free spins, the Ways to Win shoots up to 1024. This is really where the money is, but you may need to be patient as it can take a while to get in.
In terms of variance, or volatility, this game is medium variance. It’s not as volatile as the Great Blue slot or Deck the Halls, for instance, but it certainly isn’t low variance either.
Happy Holidays Slots How to Play it.
Happy Holidays is a 243 Ways to Win Microgaming 5 reel slot machine which came out just before the StarDust slot. Bet from $/€/£ 0.30 a spin, it’s a new festive slot with all the latest animated tricks and bonus rounds. You might also want to try the Bikini Party slot if you like this game- another 243 Ways to Win but this time with an innovative Re-Spin feature. Head over to 32Red online casino to play this game.
3 or more golden Christmas baubles (you know, the things you hang on your tree) will get you in to the free spins round where you can win up to 88,000.00. You’ll get 10 free spins at 1024 Ways to Win in here (up from 243 Ways to Win). The snowman symbol can morph in to the present giving Santa Claus, the kids opening pressies, the guys on the sled or the Christmas tree to give you the maximum possible win. All bets in the free spins round are at the same level as the game that preceded the bonus (ie the one in which you landed the 3,4 or 5 scatters). There is an extra row that is added to the game in the free spins round which is what take you up to 1024 Ways to Win.
There’s also the Frosty Feature in which a bonus is triggered randomly- all high symbols pay mystery prizes. During the Frosty Feature, only one scatter is needed to set off the free spins.
Our only complaint about the free spins round is that you can’t retrigger from within the bonus. A shame that.
5 scatter symbols will ney you 3000x your bet, and 5 Happy Holidays symbols gets you 1500x. Not a bad pay back for the top wins.
Not a bad addition to the festive range for Microgaming, although we still prefer Deck the Halls even if it is looking a little bit jaded. We just like the older game play more, and we like the fact that you can re-trigger the free spins (a feature that Happy Holidays lacks unfortunately). You can play them both at UK Casino Club.
Having said all of that, the animations have been improved. We did find it quite hard to get into the free spins round- but maybe we were having one of those days. You need to get in to the bonus to stand a chance of bagging the big wins.
