Where to play?
Happy Holidays was released by Microgaming in a category of slot machines that is overcrowded, yet at the end of each year there are a lot more titles added to it. Even with all that competition, Happy Holidays will be considered by many to belong among the best Christmas slot machines available right now, with the quality of the traditional style design being one of its big strengths.
In Happy Holidays, you will be playing with 5×3 reels, getting a lot of chances to win each round, since 243 bet ways are employed. You have to set up wagers which involve 30 or more coins, the most you can use for a spin being 300 coins. The coin value goes up to $0.50, and so the complete betting range allowed is $0.30 to $150.
Theme & Developer
The theme of Happy Holidays is pretty obvious, and you can figure it out from the title alone. The winter holidays are considered by most people to be a magical time each year, with Christmas being the star around which everything revolves. This Christmas themed slot focuses on Santa’s visit, but also on children having fun in the snow or opening their presents, on socks stuffed with gifts, gingerbread houses, delicious foods or sweets and huge Christmas trees. It’s a very traditional Christmas style of design, and at the highest quality, so I’m sure that players will love to play it.
The quality of Happy Holidays shouldn’t be a surprise for any player that has tried Microgaming’s popular slot machines in the past. They rarely have such high end graphics in their slot machines though, so they seem to have pulled all the stops with this game. I believe that this is the best Christmas slot in their collection.
Base Game Features
The logo of Happy Holidays, shown as a tree decoration, will be the one behaving as a wild feature. Most of the times, this symbol will act as a replacement and will help you get more prizes, though it will be the smaller ones that will come this way. The bigger payout, which it offers when you have a combo with only wilds in it, will bring you up to 1,500x your line bet. As a wild, the symbol is not capable of replacing a scatter symbol.
The base game has one other feature of note, the one called Frosty Feature. It is triggered during randomly chosen non-winning spins, so it can improve an otherwise bad round. This feature is not offered during free spins. If you get it, then even a single scatter Globe can trigger the free spins. At the same time, there will be cash prizes offered for the symbols that are showing you Santa, the kids, the Snowman or the Christmas Tree.
The usual scatter symbol that can trigger free spins is present, but before you get to that part of the game, you will get prizes from these symbols. These are Christmas Tree Globes, which pay 1x to 100x your wager, if you have two to five symbols.
Bonus Game Features
The scatter symbols I just mentioned, with the Globe, will give you 10 free spins if at least three symbols trigger the feature. The reels change in them, so you get 1024 ways to win instead of 243. You also get Snowman symbols to transform into one of the four high paying symbols during this feature.
The maximum payouts are offered via the scatter symbol, and their top value will reach $15,000. Regular combinations will pay $7,500 at most.
This is one of my favorite Christmas themed slot machines, and it’s all due to the gorgeous design that follows the traditional look of the winter holidays.Play Now With €600 + 200 Free Spins Welcome Package
