Deck the Reels!
As far as the interface of the game is concerned, you’ll be able to see that it’s made up of five reels and three rows, which is a fairly standard layout to play a video slot on. Not only that, but it’s here that you’ll find the various different icons of the game. These begin with four different Christmas-themed symbols, which are a plate of iced cookies, an edible gingerbread house, a cooked turkey resting on a platter of vegetables, and a knitted stocking filled with gifts. Five more icons join these, and this starts with the image of the Christmas tree surrounded by ice skaters. As well as this, you’ll find two kids sledging down a snow-covered hill, a snowman being constructed by two other children, and two youths unwrapping their gifts. The final one is that of a child sat on Santa’s lap with her Christmas list.
As well as the reels, rows and icons, Happy Holidays also includes a total of 243 different ways to win, and these are not able to be customised in any way. However, all players do have the chance to change around the amount of the bet they place. This is done by using the plus and minus buttons at either side of the ‘Bet’ box. This value starts from its minimum of $0.30 per spin, while it can be increased up to a maximum of $150. This, therefore, is the maximum overall wager you’re able to place per round, and there’s the inclusion of an ‘Auto Play’ button, which allows you to spin the reels up to 100 consecutive times at the same wager level.
Have a Great Christmas!
When you’re playing the Happy Holidays game, you’ll find yourself able to take advantage of some special features. The first of these is the game’s wild symbol, and this is represented by its logo. As a wild icon, it will substitute for all other symbols except for the scatter and freespins symbols. Should you manage to spin five of these on to a winning pay line, you’ll be rewarded with a maximum pay out of 7,500 coins altogether, depending upon the wager placed initially.
And, of course, as noted, there is also a scatter symbol included in game play. This is represented by the golden bauble, and they will provide a pay out wherever they show up on the reels. All wins from this symbol will multiply your total bet staked by a specific amount, so if five scatters appear in any location, you’ll find yourself receiving a maximum pay out of 15,000 coins. If you manage to spin at least three of these onto the reels, you will also trigger the game’s freespins round, and this is played with a total of 1024 ways to win activated. During the freespins round, the icon of the snowman being built can transform into any of the other four higher paying symbols in order to award you with the highest possible win.
Finally, there’s also an extra special feature included in the game, which is called the ‘Frosty Feature’. This can be triggered during the base game only, and it is randomly activated on any non-winning spin. During this round, only a single scatter is needed to activate the aforementioned freespins round, and the round will also award a cash pay out for any of the five high paying symbols making an appearance.
