Holiday Spirits slot is a November 5th 2020 release from developer Play’N Go. Timed to hit the casinos just before the Xmas period it takes up the Charles Dickens story of A Christmas Carol. We see much of the familiar imagery, including the Ghosts of Xmas Past, Present and Future. There are no Scatter symbols and an absence of a free spins bonus feature, instead players get 3 Win Spins variations, each with its own modifier.
Value for money
Holiday Spirits makes for an enjoyable Xmas themed slot which will likely hold the attention of more casual slot players. It looks excellent and gives you a real Xmas feeling which I enjoyed. However, the low max win potential combined with a quite basic bonus round will likely fail to inspire many slots fans.
Holiday Spirits Slot Stats
November 5th 2020
How It Pays and Play
Holiday Spirits slot is set on 3 reels with 3 rows and a pretty basic 5 paylines, nothing fancy here. The volatility is rated at 6/10, so medium, whilst the max win is 1,600x. You’ll need to get the 10x multiplier, Scrooge’s Xmas gift multiplier and a full screen of Wilds to bag the top prize. Bets range from 0.1 coins up to 100 coins, making it accessible to all players whatever your bankroll.
Ebenezer’s Clock Multiplier
At any point during the game you may see the clock above the reel start to spin and it will show multipliers ranging from 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x. It will land on one of these values and apply that to any winning combinations formed on that spin.
Ebenezer’s Gift Multiplier
This can be triggered during any spin with the clock multiplier and will award you a 2x on top of whatever multiplier you already have. If it comes into play during on the Win Spins then it will also double the value of the multiplier added to your Win Spin.
Win Spins Features
There are 3 version of the Win Spins which are basically simple respins of the one of the reels. They come into play when you land 2 stacked reels with Ebenezer’s Clock Multiplier in play but no winning combination is formed making it a non winning spin. Here you see the chained ghost Jacob Marley appear out from the reels and you randomly get one of the following Win Spins:
Xmas Future Win Spins = Reels keep respinning until a winning line is formed, each spin without a spin increases the multiplier to the next level, up to a max of 10x when a win is guaranteed.
Xmas Present Win Spins = Reels respin with the original multiplier fixed in place until a winning combination is formed.
Xmas Past Win Spins = Reels respin until a winning combination is made but with each extra non-winning spin the multiplier decreases one level, down to a minimum of 2x when a win is guaranteed.
Holiday Spirit slot captures the Xmas feel really well. The reels have a Xmas tree to the left and and blazing fireplace to the right. You can see Scrooge’s chair in front of the fire through the reels as they spin. The music is suitably Xmas themed and it just looks and sounds great.
The top paying symbol is Ebenezer Scrooge who is also the Wild symbol. He gives you 16x for 3 of a kind. The next highest paying symbol is Jacob Marley (the Ghost of Xmas Past) who gives 4x for 3 of a kind. Then you have the Ghost of Xmas past giving 3x for 3 of a kind. After which it’s the Ghost of Xmas Present giving 2x for 3 of a kind.
Lower paying symbols are some Holly, a Xmas Sticking, 2 Candy Cane Sticks and a snowman snow globe.
