Deck the Halls is a brightly coloured Christmas themed slot from Microgaming, with the main man himself Father Christmas making an appearance on the reels. He is making his list and checking it twice, so you may all be in for a lovely surprise.
Deck the Halls is a 5-reel, 30 pay line slot which offers an RTP of 95.38%. Now that may be less loved than a Brussel sprout, but fear not for Microgaming isn’t going to have a Christmas themed slot with no treats in store.
Now, if the 12 days of Christmas song isn’t your favourite carol, then you will want to switch off the sound. If like us, you love a bit of Christmas music tinkling along, then you’re probably going to love it. The symbols all have a very festive feel too with father Christmas, a decorated tree, a fireplace, a turkey and presents all making up your higher values. Tree decorations of all varieties make up your lower value symbols and include pine cones, a Rudolph, baubles, a star and a lantern, all sat atop a fir tree branch.
Bet Amounts – Betting begins at 1p per line in play and can be increased to 5p per line in play. This can make spins cost from as little as 1p up to £1.50 per spin at the base level. But you can also adjust the coin level from 1 to 10, meaning spins can range from 1p up to £15. Obviously, you will need to adjust the amount of lines you wish to play, then the coin value and finally the coin level until you reach your desired stake. That being said £15 as a max bet amount for 30 lines in play is still very affordable.
Wild Symbol – Your wild symbol is the Deck the Halls logo and it will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. It is also your highest paying symbol offering a whopping x4000 coin win if you land 5 on an active pay line.
Scatter Symbol – A set of golden jingle bells is your scatter symbol and 3 or more of these on an active pay line will trigger the jingle bells spins. Scatter wins are also in play here in Deck the Halls. Which means that if you land 2 or more jingle bell scatter symbols, you will receive an extra win on top of your line wins.
- 2 bell scatter symbols will award a win of your stake amount plus a x2 multiplier,
- 3 bell scatter symbols will award a win of your stake amount plus a x3 multiplier,
- 4 bell scatter symbols will award a win of your stake amount plus a x10 multiplier,
- 5 bell scatter symbols will award a win of your stake amount plus a x100 multiplier.
Santa Stacks Feature – You didn’t think there would be a Christmas game and Santa wouldn’t be a wild symbol, did you? We didn’t think so, in Deck the Halls the Santa symbol is also a wild. He will appear stacked in the game as well in both the main and the bonus rounds! So, watch out for good old saint nick completing his rounds and finishing off those wins for you.
Jingle Bells Feature – Three or more jingle bell scatter symbols will trigger this feature for you. Here you will be given 10 bonus spins to play through, whether you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters. Don’t let this worry you though as the bonus spins can be retriggered from within the round. Not only that, all wins are doubled within the feature. If that wasn’t enough, Deck the Halls has one more Christmas gift for you. Land a win during the bonus feature that includes the Deck the Halls wild symbol and your win will be multiplied x4!
If Christmas has come too early for you with this game, then you probably haven’t even read this far; if you have then treat yourself to a mince pie! Deck the Halls is an extremely simple but fun game to play and who doesn’t love a bit of Christmas. There are some interesting treats in store for players with that extra stacked Santa wild and of course the x2 and x4 win multipliers in the bonus round. Brightly coloured, well thought out and affordable too, everything you want from a festive treat isn’t it?
