Free Holiday Spirits slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Holiday Spirits slot by Play'n Go doesn't refer to the collection of yuletide whiskey you may have added to your drinks cabinet, but the Dickensian Christmas Ghosts. This another 3-reeler which this developer makes so well, Eye of The Kraken slot was superb, as was Charlie Chance - Hell to Pay slot and more recently the rather weird Rabbit Hole Riches game. Here we get a really lovely and relaxing room at Christmas with the log fire burning, tree in the corner along with gentle classical music for the season to set the scene. So can it be a feast for our bankroll or will it be seized by Scrooge here?
On the reels...
There are 3 reels of 3 rows with stacked symbols on Holiday Spirits slot paying over 5 fixed lines. The 3-of-a-kinds pay 16x bet for the Scrooge Wild, Old Ghost 4x, Death Ghost 3x, Jolly Ghost 2x, Lady Ghost 1.4x with Holly 1x, Stocking 0.8x, Sweets 0.6x and finally Snow Globe 0.4x. You can only win for 3OAK wins here by the way! You don't get a features in the conventional way but there are several mini-bonuses to land here.
Ebenezer's Clock Features
This is on the mantlepiece and can randomly activate on any spin revealing either a 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10x multiplier which will apply to any win on that spin. Certain losing double-stack reel permutations though may award re-spin features if the Clock is active on that spin, depending on which multiplier is showing:
Win Spin of Christmas Future - triggered when 2 full stacks of the same symbol appear on the grid when the 2x multiplier is showing in Ebenezer's Clock. The stacks will freeze and the other reel spins. If no win, the multiplier goes to 3x, then 4x and so-on. You must win on the 10x spin.
Win Spin of Christmas Present - same as above but triggered with the 3, 4 or 5x multiplier active. You get a guaranteed win with those symbols frozen at the multiplier in view.
Win Spin of Christmas Past - the reverse of Christmas Future above, so triggered when 2 stacks land when 10x is showing. You spin the other reel until you win, but this time the multiplier goes down the scale so you must win by the time it hits 2x.
Finally, you may have noticed Ebenezer's Gift lying by the Clock. If this is opened, your multiplier in play, whether in the re-spins or base game, will be doubled.
Holiday Spirits slot has very nice graphics and animations with some really pleasant Christmas music and sound effects. This means that it's very pleasant to spend time on and there's always something going on when you play this 96.20% RTP game. It's quite low in volatility though so expect a good turnover of funds rather than any spectacular wins, given a full screen of Wilds is only 80x which could theoretically be multiplied up to 20x. There's no danger you'll be worse off playing this than you would be if the mother-in-law landed on your doorstep Christmas Day...
