Our good friends from Play’n GO have decided to treat us all with a timely preview of the Christmas celebration that is nearing our doorsteps.
The end of the year is quite close and we better get our tuxes and evening gowns out of the closets as we will need them in no time.
You can also wear them while playing this festive title called Holiday Season, a 5-reel, 3-column and 10-payline slot, just for the kick of it.
What We Love
Apart from the obvious Christmas theme and the entire festive subject, we feel the need to highlight the winnings at the beginning of this section. The possible maximum prize to this celebratory game is set to 500,000 coins, which is quite a whopping figure that has truly taken us aback.
Holiday Season can be a life-changing game with that kind of coins on offer, so you better be quick to give it a go. Who knows, maybe you won’t need to wait until Christmas to get your present. Maybe today is your lucky day.
Play’n GO claim that Holiday Season features guaranteed wins during the Free Spins feature, so there is every reason to hope for regular wins and great excitements once you manage to land at least three Champagne Scatters to initiate the bonus.
Another thing that we love about this game is the title. We admit to being huge suckers for Christmas and holiday season and this game is to us what candy shop is to a little girl.
The setting is great as you start by being greeted by an explosion of confetti on the streets of a decorated town. The entire feel around this game is screaming Christmas and it just doesn’t get any better than this.
What We do not Like
The game really is filled with Christmas-associated symbols and details from top to bottom, but we have to say that we expected to see more from Play’n GO.
Being the game developers renowned for their high-quality games, which feature top-notch graphics, these Swedish gaming pros have disappointed us with the lack of 3D animations and cinematic experience which would have made this game a proper gem.
Another downsize to this slot game deals with the lack of features. Holiday season is a rather simple and straightforward game which does not have any outstanding features that would make it pop out.
Bare base game without any surprises is simply not up to Play’n GO standards, while the fact this game benefits from a single feature is quite disappointing as well. Ultimately, let’s talk about the game’s affordability.
It is true that Holiday Season is quite affordable with the initial stake of $0.50, but be aware that you will need whopping $100 to get the game up to its maximum.
It is not the kind of money all gamers, and especially beginners and casual players, can afford so we are quite disappointed with the fact that only high rollers will be able to fully enjoy it and get in line for the maximum 500,000 prize.
We have seen a fair share of Christmas related slot games so far, from various developers, but we must say that Holiday Season does not rate up there with the best of them. It captures the essence of the holiday, but fails to extend the festive spirit with the lack of engaging features that would make you play for a longer period of time.
It comes with highly rewarding prize, but it is not easily activated and achieved. All in all, we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but Holiday Season does little to excite us ahead of the forthcoming festivities.
