Deck the Halls is a festive themed slot game that comes with 5 reels and 30 pay-lines. It has been developed by Microgaming, who have a range of titles that celebrate various occassions in the calendar.
Now, here is a little secret about Deck the Halls. You do not have to wait until the Christmas period to enjoy playing this game. It might be full of festive imagery and symbols such as reindeer, turkeys, stockings and presents but there is much more to this slot than just a Christmas gimmick.
The two main symbols to be aware of in Deck the Halls are the Deck the Halls logo that represents the wild symbol and the Bell scatter symbol. The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols to complete winning combinations and wild symbol payouts are doubled. The scatter symbol activates the Free Spins Bonus Round when the player hits three or more of the symbols across the reels.
In the Free Spins Bonus Round, the player is initially rewarded with 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier for all payouts in this bonus feature. The player is able to re-activate the free spins if they hit three or more scatter symbols across the reels during their free spins.
Deck the Halls also comes with a unique stacking feature. The Santa symbol can be stacked in the main game and the Free Spins Bonus Round. However, the Deck the Halls logo symbol can only be stacked during the Free Spins Bonus Round. All stacked feature wins are subjected to a 4x multiplier.
Some players might feel strange playing Deck the Halls outside of December but this game is worth playing at any time of the year. I found that the multipliers could be higher and there could be more depth to the bonus feature but if you want a cheap thrill with a quick and smaller payout on the slots then this is the perfect remedy. If you want to win big on this game then you will need to bet big. Is it worth the risk? Other Microgaming titles such as the Hitman slot or the epic Thunderstruck might be more your cup of tea if you are looking for a more volatile slots experience.
