What better way for Microgaming to wish its customers a Merry Christmas than with a slot machine? This is the main role of the Happy Holidays game from the provider as its Christmas theme fits right in during the winter season. Not to mention that it offers 243 ways to win in the base game and 1,024 during the free spins as a whole new row of symbols is added to the screen.
To celebrate Christmas, Microgaming launched the Happy Holidays slot machine in December 2015, making it the perfect time for players to enjoy a Christmas-themed game. The slot is all about having happy winter holidays and so the theme shows a snowy image in the background and all sorts of related symbols on its five reels. And it is not just about the theme as the wins can easily play the role of gifts, especially when there are 243 ways to win always active and several features. The first in this category is shown as the wild symbols, which are actually represent by logo of the game. The scatter is an image of a golden tree globe and 3, 4 or 5 at the same time will trigger 10 free spins with 1,024 ways to win with the addition of a new row of symbols. During the free spins, the image of the large snowman built by two kids can transform into any of the other four high paying symbols in order to create more valuable combinations. The Frosty Feature will allow only one scatter symbol to trigger the free spins and it will award a cash pay for any of the high paying symbols as it triggers randomly on a non-winning spin, freezing the other symbols in their place. Other symbols in the game show a little girl sitting on Santa’s lap, kids opening Christmas gifts, a couple going on a sled ride and a large Christmas tree in the square. For the lower paying part, the symbols show a stocking filled with gifts, the main Christmas dinner, a gingerbread house and a plate of cookies. The background music is quite soothing and perfect for the overall theme since players will easily be able to relax and win up to 440,000 coins.
