Microgaming is one online slots developer that never disappoints – especially around the festive season. This year, the iGaming expert’s mobile players are being treated to two brand new slots just in time for the Christmas rush: Wacky Panda, filled with adorable pandas and big wins, and the wonderfully festive Holly Jolly Penguins slot!
The Isle of Man-based developer has just released its new branded Highlander slot as well, drawing inspiration from the hit 80’s film based on immortal swordsman Connor MacLeod. However, this slot might not be Christmassy enough for everyone as December draws to an end, so the developer and its team have created two new mobile-optimised slots that are sure to tickle everyone’s fancy this month.
By releasing Holly Jolly Penguins, it’s easy to see that Microgaming has really gotten into the Christmas spirit this year. This fun, spirited slot plays out over 5 reels and 45 fixed paylines, and contains everything you’d expect from a holiday-themed slot, not to mention a pack of charismatic penguins for added effect.
Various adorable penguins appear on the reels as symbols, all dressed up in red, white and green to celebrate this special time of year. A suitably festive soundtrack plays in the background as the reels spin, and big winning potential means that players could be enjoying a few extra presents under their trees this year too.
The main bonus feature in Holly Jolly Penguins is a free spins game, with a massive 80 free spins on offer – and that’s just to start with! The number of spins awarded depends on how many scatter symbols trigger the feature, but scatters also appear stacked, which significantly increases players’ chances of adding extra free spins to their bankrolls.
During the free spins game, stacked wilds will also snow down from above, appearing to cover the reels and provide the chance to grab the win of a lifetime with every spin. Free spins can even be retriggered infinitely in the new slot, which is Microgaming’s way of giving back to their players for their continued loyalty throughout the year.
Holly Jolly Penguins has now landed at Microgaming online and mobile casinos, and is the perfect game to play for those who love the festive season and all the gifts that come with it. The addition of adorable penguin characters and bright Christmas lights only make the iPhone compatible slot even more inviting, not to mention its frosty North Pole theme!
