Deck The Halls Online Slot
The Deck The Halls online slot was developed by Microgaming. It has 5 reels and 30 paylines. The maximum payout is 1,000 times the line bet for a combination of regular pictures.
The Wild symbol of the slot substitutes for the common images to make combinations with them and double your winnings. The Scatter symbol activates 10 free spins.
How to play and win
Initially, you get 2,000 credits. It is the main gaming currency which is converted into coins for betting. You can adjust the value of the coin by clicking the + and - buttons in the bottom left corner of the screen. The coin value can be 0.01, 0.02 or 0.05 credits.
You can find the number of coins that you bet in the Coins section. If you want to modify this parameter, click the + or - buttons. The Lines button follows the same principle. Here you can change the number of active paylines from 1 to 30.
You can find the amount of the bet per spin in the Bet window. You get it by multiplying the following three parameters:
- Your line bet in coins
- The number of active paylines
- The value of one coin
Click the Bet Max button and the first two parameters will be set to the maximum possible values. However, this action leads to the activation of the reels. Click the Spin button to activate a spin with the defined bet.
To start the reels you can also use the automatic mode of spins. Clicking the Auto Play button you choose the number of spins from the drop-down list. Also, in the additional window, you can define the limit for payouts during the automatic spins. If you exceed this limit, the spins will stop.
The automatic mode also stops for two reasons:
- When you hit the Stop button in the bottom right corner of the screen
- If you've run out of the automatic spins
The Spins window shows you the number of automatic starts which have already been done.
A gold line is found below the main control panel. You can see the Expert/Regular button active on it. Clicking this button you can turn on the corresponding mode of the slot. The Expert mode is described above. There are no + and - buttons and automatic spins in the Regular version of the slot.
In the Win section you can see your prize for a successful spin. You can win for combinations of any symbols. The series of standard pictures has some limits which influence its payouts.
The winning combination must:
- Start on the leftmost reel
- Cross the neighbouring reels and the same active line
- Consist of the necessary number of identical symbols
The minimum number of images required for a combination is 3. However, as few as two Wild symbols are enough for a winning combination.
You can learn the rules of the slot in more detail by clicking the question mark in the top right hand corner of the screen. There is a loudspeaker adjusting the sound and a clock showing your local time near it.
Symbols and multipliers of the Deck The Halls slot
You can find the main information about symbols and their advantages in the View Pays section.
The function of the Wild symbol is to replace missing images in combinations of common icons. Besides, if there is a Wild symbol in one combination, all the payouts for a spin double.
The Wild symbol is the logo of the Deck The Halls slot. This image forms its own combinations which consist only of it. For such combinations, you win 10, 200, 1,000 or 4,000 times the line bet.
Another special symbol is an image with the bells. It functions as the Scatter symbol and is not bound to certain boxes or active lines. If the following icons appear on the reels:
- 2 images with the bells — you get 2 times the total bet
- 3 images — 3 times the total bet
- 4 images — 10 times the total bet
- 5 images — 100 times the total bet
The basic symbols are 10 images on the theme of the slot. All the winning combinations have different multipliers. As a corresponding winning combination appears, they are applied to the line bet.
The pine cones have the smallest multipliers — 5, 10 and 30. They are followed by a lantern. It earns you 5, 15 or 40 times the line bet. The Christmas tree baubles win you 5, 20 or 50 times the bet per line. A deer decoration has the multipliers of 8, 25 and 70. A glass snowflake has the multipliers of 10, 30 and 80.
You can win higher payouts for the following symbols. The winnings are indicated as the multipliers of the line bet:
- The gift boxes have the multipliers of 20, 50 and 200
- The image of a Roast Turkey — 30, 60 and 300
- The fireplace with stockings — 40, 80 and 400
- The Christmas tree — 50, 100 and 500
- The combinations of Santa Clauses — 100, 500 and 1,000
The images of Santa Claus can appear on the reels in stacks, where one reel contains as many as three identical symbols at a time. During the free spins, the Wild symbols can do the same.
Three, four or five Scatter symbols trigger ten free spins. During free spins all your payouts double. If there is a combination of the Wild symbols on the reels, then standard multipliers increase fourfold. Thanks to this, the potential payout for the free spins series can reach the amount of 2,400,000 coins.
During free spins, you have a chance to win ten free spins. To do this, you need to get the necessary combination of the bells.
