Even for the biggest Grinch amongst you, it will be hard not to have some festive cheer when you load up Deck the Halls on your mobile device. This is one of a number of games from Microgaming that have had a really smooth transition to mobile. Whilst the game is comes in a pocket sized packet, it packs as big a punch as any we have tested.
It’s really nice to see Microgaming investing time back into their 5 reel 30 payline games again. These were once the cornerstone of their makeup, but recently they seem to have swayed more towards the 9 payline games, which are very niche targeted. These seem to provide a much broader scale of focus and will appeal to more punters, in our opinion anyway. You get a good range of free spins, wilds, scatter symbols, multipliers and even the stacked symbols that Microgaming have been famous for implementing.
You hear the word ‘classic’ pinged about a lot within the mobile slots industry and whilst we have been guilty of it in the past, we feel the word has fewer been sued more appropriately than with Deck the Halls. Although for once, we don’t refer to it as being classic in the gameplay sense, but mainly in terms of design. Each symbol is beautifully designed and drawn out to make it feel really homely and the inclusion of a Christmas tree, stockings, roaring fire, jingle bells and a juicy looking turkey just makes it feel really homely.
Let’s kick start the feature section with the scatter symbols of the bells. These will get you into the free spins and get you a pretty measly 10 to start with. You will then receive a pretty mediocre 2 times your winnings from within this section. But if you manage to get the scatter symbol within your free spins and stacked, then you will receive 4 times your win fall along with additional free spins. Not so bad after all!
The wild symbol is represented by the Deck the Halls log and this little beauty will double any paylines it lands on. Also, if you manage to fill the board with wilds you will win the huge jackpot of 2,400,000 coins which will certainly make this a Christmas to remember.
Finally, we just want to finish with a quick message about the versatility of the game. The lowest stake starts at just 0.30 coins a spin whilst it manages to work its way right up to 300 coins a spin. It’s essentially a low volatility slot which could reward you with life changing amounts of money.
