All About Christmas Slot (Microgaming)
Golden Rock Studios is relatively new in the scene, but they have partnered with Microgaming, an older player in the industry, to create a slot titled, All About Christmas.
Golden Rock Studios has an older slot known as All Sports that was a huge success. This may have inspired them to create a holiday-themed slot, All About Christmas.
Here is my review of All About Christmas:
The developer has gone with the common 5 reels setup, and up to 40 pay lines/ways
I loved working with several features that have been provided, and they include Free spins (bonus game), Respins, Stacked Wilds, Hold and Spin feature, Random Multiplier, Multiplier Wilds, and Stacked Symbols.
Betting and Prizes
As a medium volatility game, the slot’s betting range of between 0.40 and $80 per spin is quite fair.
All About Christmas has a decent RTP of 96.15%, and for the top prize, you will get up to 2000x the stake.
All About Christmas Features
The wilds feature is the commonest on modern slots, and you will get it here as well. It can land on the entire reels, and you can use it to replace other regular symbols, in addition to helping with forming winning combos
Since it lands in a stack, you can get a full stack of wilds on the 3rd reel, where it will also be accompanied by a random multiplier of between 2x and 5x.
If Santa’s gift sack bonus symbols land on the 1st reel, the Hold & Spin feature will be activated. Any bonus symbols visible on the reels will get sticky, and it will be followed by a respin.
The slot will also give you up to 8 free spins for a start, and it possible to retrigger the feature during the bonus spin.
It is during the free spins that you will get the highest multiplier of either 3x, 5x, 7x or 10x.
Theme and Design
The reels strategically stand in front of a beautiful fireplace, and both sides, they have a great brick-wall. Several garlands are also visible.
The setup cannot be complete without a Christmas tree, alongside some Christmas presents.
The reels have several symbols that include coloured playing cards with some snow on top, bells, a cake, snowman, and Santa Claus.
If you played the original game, you have an opportunity to try out the Holidays alternative.
Personally, I find no inspiration in the theme, and the background soundtrack is a little annoying.
If you are looking for Christmas theme, many developers offer a better alternative.
The slot does not keep up with the quality that I see on many slots associated with Microgaming, and I can only recommend it to casual players.
