It’s about Christmas time, and therefore is the right time to talk about Deck the Halls slot. It was released during a Christmas time in 2008 by Microgaming, and here, we are in the middle of yet another Christmas.
The theme is cheerful with soft festive music and symbols representing Christmas trees and glittering objects of Christmas tree decorations, in addition to the Santa Claus’s face, his stockings hanging by the fireplace, a turkey on a plate, etc. The slot is pleasant even to look at thanks to its bright colors. It is fundamentally a low-volatility game and provides an RTP of 95.38%.
How to play?
Deck the Halls is a game with 30 paylines and 5 reels, played in a 5×3 grid view. The coin range is from 1 to 10 per line, with a coin size of 0.01 to 0.5. The betting range is 0.3-300, and a max win value is 120,000 coins.
As mentioned above, the symbols displayed in the Deck the Halls slot are all related to Christmas. The most valuable symbols are the delicious-looking turkey on the plate, the Christmas tree, some decoration objects, and Santa’s stockings.
The Santa Claus symbol is stacked on the reels for both the base game and the free spin rounds. However, the ‘Deck the Halls’ logo symbol stacks up only in the free spins game. Stacked objects will increase the chances of a win.
- The ‘Deck the Hall’ logo is the wild symbol in this game. It can replace any other symbol except the scatter and doubles whatever you win during the stage.
- The gold bells and mistletoe are the symbols that act as a scatter. When three or more of them appear at the same time in view, they trigger a round of 10 free spins.
- The maximum win is 4000 coins, but with a jackpot, you will be able to win even up to 2.4 million coins.
Certain combinations of symbols help you win huge prizes and reap benefits in the Deck the Halls slot. Some of the highest-valued symbol combinations of the game are as follows:
- 5 Christmas trees – 500x
- 5 Santa’s red stocking pair – 400x
- 5 Turkey on the plate – 300x
- 5 gift boxes – 200x
The free spin rounds are special in the Deck the Halls slot in that they open many options for the player. Special features of the spins are multi-level and versatile, which makes them all the more interesting. Basically, 3, 4 or 5 bell symbols appearing at the same time result in 10 free spins. Your wins are doubled when you are in a free spin round, but in the win, if the Deck the Halls logo acts as a stacked Wild, then the wins are quadrupled. It’s not all if you get three scatters again in the free spin round; it triggers yet another round of free spins. The highly lucrative free spins rounds coupled with the stacked symbol features help you win even as much as 2.4 million coins.

Even though the RTP is quite modest, with free spins, a multiplier, wild and scatter features, not to mention the festive ambiance created by the Christmas cheer, the Deck the Halls slot has so much on offer to the player and could not be ignored. However, the high volatility can make an average player impatient as you sometimes have to make hundreds of spins to arrive at a free spins round.
