Microgaming release Christmas themed pokie Happy Holidays

There’s just over five weeks until Christmas and Microgaming are set to release a brand new slot this December to celebrate.

Unlike Net Entertainment, who are set to release Christmas decorated versions of slots already available, Microgaming have created a brand new poker machine called Happy Holidays.

The slot, which will no doubt be available at all our favourite Microgaming online casinos, features 243 ways to win that actually turns into 1024 ways to win when the Free Spins feature is activated.

Featuring a classic white christmas theme – not quite relevant to our sweltering Aussie Christmas we experience each year – the reels are set on a backdrop of a snowy street. The symbols lining the reels feature a snowman, a beautiful christmas tree, a stocking, Santa, a gingerbread man and more – suggesting that you can come home this festive season for happy holidays.

The base game kicks off with 243 ways to win, and when players spin at least three Scatter symbols (the bauble with ‘Free Spins’ written across the middle) the reels transform seeing the addition of an extra row to create the 1024 ways to win. Players are also awarded at least 10 free spins here, while the snowman symbol changes into any high value symbol to complete a winning combination.

There is also a Frosty Feature available to activate during the base game where the reels frost over thanks to a blizzard, and here every high symbol that appears pays out quite nicely. The Free Spin feature can be triggered here too.

Sign up at Royal Vegas Online Casino and check if Happy Holidays has been released.

As per the slots we detail below, there’s no doubt Happy Holidays will be available year round upon release.
