Deck the Halls Slot
Deck the Halls slot game is a title featuring a 5-reel, 30 pay-line format. Released to an unsuspecting audience in 2008, the game is one of several Christmas-themed games that Microgaming has inflicted on, we mean, unveiled to the public. Some of the others include the Secret Santa casino slot and Jingle Bells.
Deck the Halls Slot Background
As mentioned in other Christmas casino slot reviews on this site, December 25th is less about that bloke from Bethlehem and more about Santa Claus these days. Our pretend saint is now the go-to guy from early October on-wards as the West’s temporal holiday gathers pace. Appropriately, Microgaming released their Deck the Halls slot game in order to capture the essence of a contemporary Christmas celebration.
It’s immediately apparent that Deck the Halls has aged like an open bottle of claret. The empty, clean spaces found on many contemporary casino slots are nowhere to be seen. Instead, every pixel of space has been used for the game’s visuals, including a red wallpaper background upon which sits large reel symbols as well as lashings of holly. Old-school buttons, complete with glass effects, also sit obtrusively below the reels. As far as in-game animations go, there aren’t any. All in all, it’s a full-frontal assault on the senses that becomes a pincer movement when a synthesized version of Twelve Days of Christmas (uh?) kicks in.
The Deck the Halls game logo signifies the wild feature and doubles the pay-out of any combination it completes. It also creates a stacked ‘wild symbol attack’ during the free spins bonus game. As usual, the wild substitutes all symbols apart from the scatter.
Represented by a bell, the scatter in Deck the Halls completes a winning combination when two appear on the wheels. When three or more appear, the free spins bonus is activated.
