Christmas is on the horizon and that can mean only one thing, a new slot from Microgaming that will give your season added spice. It’s called Happy Holidays and If you land the jackpot on this one, then that is precisely what you’ll be having.
The theme is of course Christmas and there’s a whole host of Christmas-themed symbols across the reels, from a deliciously roasted turkey, to a snowman, a gingerbread house and a stocking crammed full of presents.
Set against a snowy backdrop, this 5×3 slot offers 243 ways to win in the base game and you can get the reels spinning for a minimum bet of just 0.30, although this can be increased to a significantly higher amount per spin for higher roller players.
There’s the usual Wild symbol which substitutes for other symbols in the base game to create winning paylines, but it is when you get to the additional features that Happy Holidays slot reveals its true plentiful presents.
The first of these is triggered by landing three or more of the golden bauble scatter symbols across the reels. This triggers a 10 test spins round which sees an additional line added to each reel to create a 5×4 matrix and an incredible 1024 ways to win.
During test spins if you land a snowman on the reels then this will transform into any other high symbol on the reels to award the player the highest possible win.
That’s not all as during the base game, if you land the Frosty feature, then every high symbol on the screen will award you a cash payout and if a scatter symbol is on the screen when the Frosty feature is activated then you’ll trigger the test spins bonus round from landing just one scatter on the reels.
