We’re All Going on A….
Don’t worry folks, there’s no sign of Sir Cliff Richard warbling away in this ‘Summer Holiday’ slot from Microgaming but it’s so sunny you might want to be in the Shadows. Instead we have a colourful looking five-reel slot game that has a total of 100 pay-lines. There’s a total of 37 winning combinations in ‘Summer Holiday’ so surely a few must be heading in your direction. The pay-lines aren’t fixed and the minimum cost of playing all the lines is €1 and the maximum €50, just play at a financial level you feel comfortable with.
Symbols in the game fit in well with the theme. There’s drinks, meat fruit, bread cheese and dip fishing, biking, jetty jumping, a pedal boat, a couple on the beach and dogs. It’s the Summer Holiday logo which is the wild in this game. It can substitute for other symbols in the game (except for the scatter symbol) and that can definitely put you on your way to some winning combinations. Even more so as the wild is stacked.
Watch that Duck Scatter
The scatter symbol is the duck and this can also provide some profits for you. Just two of them anywhere on the reels will see a win coming your way. There are some good wins to be had in this game. Five of the couple on the beach pays 400x your line bet and it’s 300x for five of the fishing symbol. Top prize is 750x for five wilds.
This game has an attractive look to it and is one that you will find it easy to operate. Have a good look through the paytable to find out how much you can win and full details of the bonus games in this excellent slot.
Free Spins Galore
At least three scatters symbols are needed to get you into the free spins round. Three rewards you with 15 free spins, four takes that up to 20 and five has you playing with 25 free spins to try and win cash with.
Again, the wild symbol is stacked and wins are tripled. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins if those scatters come along again. If your luck is really in you can win up to 2,250,000 coins during the free spins round.
Will You Pick A Prize?
Not happy with how much you win in the Free Spins round or just hungry for more cash? The Pick-a-Prize bonus comes up at the end of the free spins round. You can either collect your winnings, replay the free spins, or take a mystery prize which is a multiplier of between 10x and 100x your total bet.
It’s not as bad as a gamble feature and could even end up with you increasing the win you’ve just had. This is an interesting feature though and certainly adds to the attraction of playing this game, after all not every free spins round can be as profitable as you might like.
‘Summer Holiday’ is similar to a few other slot games. That includes fellow Playtech slot ‘Raging Wilds’ and ‘Royal Frog’ from Quickspin. They are all medium variance slots, need three scatters to trigger the bonus round and have a 5×4 reel layout. The multiplier in ‘Summer Holiday’ is much higher though.
Another entertaining and interesting slot from Microgaming. The theme is a good one and well adhered to. The bonus round is an interesting one, particularly with the Pick-a-Prize feature. Be careful with it but like most features in this game it can bring about some good wins.
