Christmas is coming thick and fast, and Play ‘n Go have already jumped on the Yuletide bandwagon, in an attempt to draw in as large a crowd as possible with their new game Holiday Season.
The Holiday Season slot is your typical Christmas themed game, so expect plenty of frees, presents, food, and champagne to be dispersed across the reels of this 5-reel, 10-line slot.
Graphically, the slot is rather primitive. The graphics are basic, and could easily have been found in a slot released a few years prior. Graphics aren’t everything, though. Play ‘n Go have included a rather entertaining free spins feature in this slot, and wagers are guaranteed to be as cheap as chips.
Holiday Season is not actually that different from other, more predictable Play ‘n Go games. Anybody who has tried one of their slots before won’t be terribly surprised with what the slot has to offer. Is Holiday Season the best Play ‘n Go slot ever devised? No. Will it be a hit this Christmastime? Possibly.
How to play it
Truth be told, there isn’t too much to shout about when it comes to the wagering setup. For starters, Play ‘n Go have only included 10 paylines across the 5 reels of this slot, and that isn’t very exciting or prosperous at all. On the upside, it does keep wagers down to a minimum.
The rather poor looking wagering menu bar can see you able to select coin sizes from $0.01 up to $2. Players can also choose to wager up to 5 coins per line. At its cheapest, this slot will cost players $0.01 per line, per spin, but you probably knew that already. At its costliest, it can set you back $100 a pop.
How much can you win?
There is a bit of discrepancy between what Play ‘n Go says you can win, and what we actually won when we tried the game. We never managed to breach 3,000 coins whilst playing the game.
However, Play ‘n Go are adamant that it is possible to win as much as 500,000 coins with this slot. For the life of us, we can’t see how that is possible. In that case, we’ll just have to take Play ‘n Go’s word on that.
Play For Real Money Holiday Season Slot With These Bonuses:
Wild symbols: Holiday Season’s wild symbols can substitute for all other symbols in the game, although they cannot substitute for scatters. Wilds can see you pocket up to 1,000 coins if 5 appear on a payline, and that’s not a bad cash prize to land by any means. Wilds are pretty basic in this slot machine game.
Scatter symbols: This slot’s scatter icons appear as champagne symbols. Scatters are worth more than any other symbol (according to the paytable), but we found wilds to be more rewarding.
Scatters can trigger a free spins feature, but you will need 3 or more to appear on the screen for that to happen. There is only one bonus round in this game, but thankfully it is a rather decent one.
Free spins bonus: Once the bonus has been activated, you will be rewarded for making it through a fairly awkward slot machine thus far. The free spins feature offers Win Spins. This means that although you only get 5 of them, you are guaranteed a win on every single spin you make in this slot.
Players will also be fairly happy to learn that they can bag as many as 3 more wins spins whilst playing this game. To do so, they need to land additional scatter icons on the reels.
Overall experience and final thoughts
The new Holiday Season slot launched this month. As we’ve said, we can praise its free spins bonus feature, which is rather exceptional. That is about the only really exceptional thing one can say about the Holiday Season slot, though.
The graphics are kind of bad, there is a woeful lack of paylines in the game, and to be honest, we strongly believe that there will be plenty of better Christmas themed slots coming out over the coming weeks. They may be worth a look more so than this Play ‘n Go title.
