Deck the Halls is wonderfully designed, Microgaming developed, Christmas themed video slot. The game focuses on traditional Christmas, with lanterns, fireplaces, Christmas trees, reindeer, baubles, and of course, Father Christmas all splashed across the reels. The reels themselves are decorated in garland, and the slot is very user-friendly. Players can expect to be able to choose coin sizes which range from 0.01 up to 0.05 in this slot, and bet as many as 10 coins per payline. There are 30 lines sitting on the 5 reels of this slot, all of which are adjustable. Players will therefore end up wagering between 0.01 per line per spin, and 15.00 per spin on this slot machine game. With a good run of luck, players could potentially win as much as 2,400,000 coins with the game, or at least so Microgaming claims.
Wild symbols appear as the Deck the Halls logo in this game. The symbols can replace all others in the game, barring scatter icons. Wilds can also double the value of all winning combinations in which they appear.
During the base game (and the free spins bonus), the Father Christmas icon can appear stacked on the reels of the game. This can help boost your wins, since the symbol is a decent paying icon, even if it isn’t necessarily the jackpot paying one.
Scatter icons take the shape of a pair of bells decorated in holly. These symbols can trigger a free games feature when 3 or more appear in any position on the reels during the base game. They can also dish out scattered wins worth 2x, 3x, 10x, or 100x your total bet when 2, 3, 4 or 5 appear anywhere on the screen during a spin.
Players will always start the free spins bonus round with 10 games. During the feature, any wins acquired by the player will be doubled. Deck the Halls wild symbols also appear stacked during the free spins bonus round, and any wins which contain these stacked wilds will see your wins quadrupled.
The features in Deck the Halls are primitive and basic, but they certainly help the slot machine game become one of the best Christmas themed slot machines you are likely to come across, even if it doesn’t happen to be that particularly special time of the year.
