Don’t you just love Christmas or is it another dreaded ‘C’ word to you? The excitement starts to build in August as the mince pies and Christmas cards appear in the shops and from then on it’s a non-stop deluge of advertising plugging the most expensive 24 hours of the year. Well to get yourself ready for the big day here’s a slot game that you can play all year round and win some money to pay for all that seasonal expense.
It’s designed by Microgaming who have been so good at producing slot games over the past couple of decades. Deck The Halls is a five reel game with 30 paylines for you to try and win some cash on. The cost of playing the game ranges from £0.01 to £15. Not too wide a range so you’re bound to find a level that you can enjoy betting at.
The graphics are excellent in this game and what is really impressive is the fact every single symbol is Christmas related. That means all the time, wherever you look, it’s Christmas, Christmas, Christmas and no sign of any playing card symbols. So to get you in the mood for Christmas we have Santa of course, a gorgeous looking Christmas dinner, a blazing fire with Christmas stockings hanging from the fireplace, a Christmas tree, decorations for the tree including baubles, those pine cones that get all over the carpet, a star and a reindeer, Christmas bells and some boxes full of presents you’ll probably take back to the shops on Boxing Day,
There’s also the Deck the Halls logo which is the wild symbol in this game. It can substitute for all symbols in the game (with the exception of the Bells scatter symbol) to create some winning combinations. When that does happen the resulting payout is doubled. If you get a regular win and another caused by the scatter symbol you get paid out on both wins.
To give you even more chance of getting wins, the game has a really helpful stacking feature. Seeing it’s Christmas it only makes sense that it’s the Santa symbol that is stacked when you play both the main game and the bonus round. The same applies to the Deck the Halls Logo but only during the bonus round. Even better news is the fact that all wins achieved as a result of the stacked feature have a 4x multiplier attached.
Playing the game is pretty easy with all the control buttons down the bottom of the screen. These allow you to set the stake you want to play at and how many paylines you want to activate. You can play this in regular or expert mode. The expert mode allows you to have some autoplay, either five or ten automated spins or you can set your own amount by clicking on the autoplay button. All the info about the game is in the paytable so that’s worth a good look. It’s not the most complicated of games but a few free plays before risking your real cash is always a good idea.
This isn’t a spectacular game but there’s certainly plenty to like about it. The Christmas theme is adhered to throughout and the music isn’t too bad either. The stacked symbols certainly help you get some decent wins as does the bonus game.
