Vera and John Casino are getting into the Christmas Spirit with the brand new Holiday Season slot from Play’n GO which is now live and playable at the casino.
Holiday Season is 5×3 reel slot machine with up to 10 active paylines, and unusually for a Christmas themed slot this looks to be a fairly high variance slot machine with a volatility rating of “Very High” (10/10) set by Play’N Go, this puts this slot into a similar category as the very popular Book of The Dead slot in terms of volatility and should offer some decent “big win” potential.
The base game is a fairly standard affair, with wild symbols and several wild symbols stacked on the reels along with some very high paying symbols for 5 of a kind wins, but the main focus of this slot is going to be the special scatter symbols which when 3 or more land on the reels triggers the special “Win Spins” bonus round.
Holiday Season – Win Spins Bonus Round
The Win Spins bonus round is one that has appeared on several Play’ N Go slots before such as Pimped, and as the name suggest these are guaranteed wins on each spin.
On triggering the bonus round you are granted an initial 5 Win Spins, but the feature can be re-triggered by landing more of the scatter symbols on the reels during the Win Spins round.
2 additional Win Spins are awarded per Scatter symbol that land on the reels during the bonus round, up to a maximum total of 20 free spins.
The Holiday Season slot from Play’N Go has a theoretical RTP (Return To Player) of 96.51%.
Overall Thoughts on Holiday Season Slot
Holiday Season is a somewhat understated seasonal slot machine from Play’n Go, the graphics and gameplay are nothing groundbreaking, but the redeeming feature is definitely that they have chosen to make this a high volatility slot.
Because of the high volatility there is definitely some big win potential with the Win Spins mechanic and stacked wild reels on offer during the main bonus round.
Our best bonus round during our playtests was well over 200x stake, with plenty more potential on offer from the stacked wild reels.
Overall, not the best online slot release from Play’n Go but the paytable makes up somewhat for a graphically average release.
