A beautifully hand-drawn Christmas mobile slot, it’s hard not to get into the spirit of the festive season with Microgaming’s Deck the Halls slot.
Tis’ the season to be spinning… fa lalalal lala…lala… are you still here? Singing the song in your head? Perfect. Then this mobile slot is just the right amount of Christmas warmth for you.
Because Deck the Halls mobile slot will keep you spinning way past the festive season, giving you wins about 40% of the time, a joyful occasion each and every-time. Even if it’s the middle of July you’ll want to get into the spirit of the season for giving, especially with a Christmas slot that has so much to give.
You may, or may not, have guessed that Deck the Halls slot on mobile is of low volatility. It will give you plenty of wins to keep you entertained, but not always huge ones. This is no doubt because the Santa symbol, the one with the highest payout short of the wild, comes stacked throughout the game. Line up two of these in a row, add some wilds that multiply your wins by two… and we’ve gotten wins of 60x to 80x our bet. The rest of the wins will keep your wallet topped up for hitting those free spins.
This, like many Microgaming video slots is far from perfect of course. Much like its theme, too much of it may leave you feeling poorer rather than richer, especially if you don’t hit those free spin games – which are not easy to get. It’s during the free spins that you have the chance of some big wins, and that maximum payout of a hefty 120,000 in cash.
A little patience and some playing with your budget will be needed, as you’ll need a good 200 to 300 spins to hit the free games bonus feature, but boy is it worth it. Stacked wilds, 4x multiplier, stacked santas… everything is in place to give you one hell of a Christmas party. But generally don’t be surprised by the fact that you’ll have to be entertained by the base game for most of your game play whilst you wait for those free spins to show up.
But when the game looks as pretty as it does, it’s easy to enjoy the pleasure of the spin. You can almost smell the chestnuts roasting from that open fire, hear the clink of the glass baubles as the reindeer land on the roof and presents are magically left under the tree. This video slot is for Christmas lovers and not for Grinches, celebrating everything that is homely and warm of the season.
We think Deck the Halls online slot actually got improved on transfer to the small screen in fact, the sounds are subtle and light on the wins, rather than on the online version where you got a constant Christmas theme that can leave even the most hardened Christmas lover grinding their teeth from the repetition.
One we recommend for iPads and HD tablets especially, with a hot chocolate on a cold winter evening.

Scatters and Free Spins: Get 3 or more Christmas bells on the screen and you'll get 10 free spins, where all wins are doubled. But it wouldn't be Christmas without a few surprises. During the free spins the wild symbol not only comes stacked, but with a 4x multiplier. And this little baby, let me tell you, comes often enough to count.

That said, you'll soon find yourself gorging on the feast, thinking you are winning, when in fact the wins are only just covering your bet. But like all good Christmas experiences, when the times are happy they are very happy, with big wins coming every once in a while to give you hope to hit a big jackpot.
If you can spin long enough to hit those free spins then you are in for even more of a treat!
Beautiful, charming and a perfect companion for a cold winter's eve.
