This slot is beautiful and almost looks like a Christmas card. The game background is a snowy neighbourhood scene, and the soundtrack is Christmas carols. They highest paying symbols in this game are Santa Claus with a child on his lap, two children who are opening their Christmas presents, a snowman, two kids playing in the snow, and a Christmas tree. The lowest paying symbols are a red Christmas stocking, a juicy turkey, a gingerbread house, and a plate of Christmas cookies. The Wild symbol is the game logo and the Scatter is a gold ornament with the word Scatter written on it.
You can play Happy Holidays for as little as £0.30 per spin and the maximum bet is £30.
There are two main features in this game: The Frosty Feature and the free spins bonus round.
The Frosty Feature is triggered in the base game after a no-win spin and creates superb random wins. A cold wind will blow on the reels and will freeze the lowest paying symbol to reveal instant cash prizes hidden behind the highest paying ones. When the reel is frozen, the snowman will award you the highest instant win. The amount you will receive is random and each symbol pays differently, even if they are the same. Another great thing about this feature is that you can trigger a free spins bonus round with only one Scatter.
The free spins feature is triggered when three Scatter symbols land on the reels and will award you 10 free spins. In this bonusround, the 243 ways to win will change into 1,024 ways to win as another row of symbols is added at the top of the reels. During the free spins, the snowman symbol can substitute for any other symbols to give the highest possible win. Additional free spins can be triggered simply by hitting three or more Scatter symbols.
Happy Holidays is a beautiful video slot and it is available on desktop and mobile. You are spoiled for choices when it comes to playing a Christmassy game around the holiday period, but Happy Holidays is one of the best, mainly thanks to the two different bonus features, both of which are incredibly innovative and can lead to some really impressive prizes.
