All About Holiday Spirits
Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is one of the all-time great Christmas tales. Play n Go had a great year with numerous great releases culminating in October with the long-awaited sequel to Reactoonz. And they ended 2020 on a good note.
Holiday Spirits is a traditional three-row, three-reel game about Ebenezer Scrooge and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future. It’s graphically stunning, like most Play n Go games. The reels are set in Ebenezer’s warm and inviting room, with a festive Christmas tree and fireplace in the background.
To win, you need three matching symbols on a payline, and the minimum wager is $0.05.
RTP, Variance, and Highest Payout
To appeal to a broad audience in the spirit of Christmas, the variance is moderate and the victories are widely distributed. The RTP is 96.54 percent, and the highest payout is a modest 1,600x. To earn close to that sum, you’ll need to be lucky with multipliers and free spins.
The icons on the reels are all Christmas-themed or from the Christmas Carol story. Symbol payouts are modest. You’ll discover three premium icons, providing from 1.4x to 3x for three-of-a-kind, in the premium icon set. Meanwhile, Ebenezer’s companion, Jacob Marley’s spirit, proposes 4x bet.
These low-value symbols give 0.40x to 1x for three of a kind. Watch out for Ebenezer Scrooge, the Wild emblem that replaces all others. He is the game’s highest-paying symbol, earning 16x stake for three on a payline.
Gameplay and Specs
On the surface, this is a 3×3 game, yet it is filled with features. Play n Go is generous with multipliers and free spins, which means more frequent wins and more enjoyment. How it works:
An ancient clock hangs over the reels. This clock is Ebenezer’s favorite, and it may occasionally activate Ebenezer’s Clock. When the function is activated, any win will be double. They range from 2x to 10x.
In addition, if Ebenezer’s Clock is activated, a random gift is given. When this happens, the Gift doubles all wins. So now we have possible 4x, 6x, 8x, or even 20x multipliers from Ebenezer’s Clock.
On a non-winning spin, the Double Stack bonus is triggered if two reels contain the same icons. This will activate one of three Win Spins features:
A 2x multiplier activates Win Spins of Christmas Future. The non-stacked reel will respin until a winning combination is landed. With each non-winning re-spin, the win multiplier increases from 3x to 10x.
3x, 4x, or 5x multipliers activate Win Spins of Christmas Present. They lock and respin the non-stacked reels. The respin must win.
Only triggered while the 10x multiplier is active. The non-stacked reel keeps respinning until it wins. The win multiplier starts at 10x and lowers with each non-winning re-spin, eventually down to 2x.
Holiday Spirits is a fantastic festive game with a timeless tale and fantastic visuals. The medium volatility ensures there are regular occurrences on the reels, and the combination of multipliers and free spins adds to the excitement. It takes three Win Spins features to reach near to the 1,600x top payoff, and while that’s a little amount in the context of current slot games, it’s still worth a go this Christmas.
