The wombat says: They say Christmas comes but once a year but that’s a load of old cobblers! With the Deck the Halls slot from Microgaming (of Bar Bar Blacksheep slot fame), it can be Xmas on all 365 days of the year!
Especially if you win big… Who wants to wait until December to celebrate Christmas anyway? Not this Wombat and Microgaming really have decked this game out with all the trimmings you’d expect from a yuletide slot, so it seems a waste to only spin in December. Don your Santa hat Wombat Fans, and lets’s get playing!
Look and Feel
Yes, the whole festive shebang is in offer here in Deck The Halls slot design; presents all wrapped up, big old roast turkeys, tinsel decorations, stars, Rudolph the reindeers, Christmas trees and of course the ubiquitous stockings – all decked out in festive reds and golds and full to the brim of Christmas cheer. The graphics are basic like Retro Reels Diamond Glitz and a bit on the cheesy side, but who cares? Christmas is supposed to be kitsch! It’s one of those classic designs like the Fruit Fiesta 5 Reel slot– if it works, why change it?
Deck The Halls slot is a 5-reel, slot with 3 rows and 30 pay-lines. Your symbols on the reels include all of the above mentioned festive-themed goodies, with the Father Christmas symbol ad the most valuable of all the icons – paying out 1000 coins for 5x on a pay-line. He will also appear stacked on the reels too, so you’ll get more chances of a winning jackpot!
The wild symbol in the game is the ‘Deck the Halls’ logo and it will substitute for all symbols on the reels except for the Scatter. Plus it will also give you a x2 multiplier on any wins it is a part of! It really is Christmas!
The Golden Bells symbol acts as the Scatter symbol in the slot. Land 3x or more of these yuletide beauties, and 10 Free Spins will be yours!
Scatters and Free Spins
10 Free Spins might not sound like an overly generous Christmas gift, BUT there’s lots of extras in the bonus too! All wins during the Free Spins round are doubled, and there’s a 4x multiplier in play when wins occur courtesy of the the Deck The Hall Stacked Wilds symbols!
But, best of all Wombat fans, the whole Free Spins bonus can be re-triggered. All you need to do is land another 3x or more of the Bell Scatters on the reels!
Deck The Halls slot on mobile
This wombat thinks that Deck the Halls slot actually looks better on smaller devices! The Christmas carol soundtrack has gone for starters (which we much prefer), and the play seems a bit smoother. The slot is compatible with iPads, Android tablets and all smartphones.
Christmas slots are often overlooked, but we think this seasonal-inspired slot from Microgaming is worth a go at any time of year. The Free Spins are lucrative, if not a bit difficult to trigger, so grab an egg nog, a mince pie and settle down for the duration. Tis’ the season to be spinning… fa lalalal lala…lala!
Ho ho ho it’s a 4/5. And a partridge in a pear tree while we’re at it.
