Holly Jolly Penguins is a Microgaming-powered slot with 5 reels and 45 paylines. With a Christmas theme, it can be played from 50p to £125 per spin across all devices. It comes with 2 wilds which appear stacked on all reels as well as a Free Spins feature with unlimited free spins available.
Visually, this seasonal game has a Christmas theme and comes with a jolly and festive soundtrack. Set in the North Pole, symbols on the reels include A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as a few jolly penguins – you have Lorenzo, Rudy, Tania, Sven, Ole, Larry, Darryl, Quincy and Quasi. Each have their own talents such as carol singing, snowball throwing and tree trimming. There are 2 wild symbols which appear stacked on all symbols and replaces all other symbols bar the scatter.
There’s a scatter, the 2 sledding penguins, which also serves as both scatter pay and a free spins trigger – if you get 3 or more scatters, you will get a prize. As the scatters appear stacked, up to 7 scatters can appear on a single spin. If you get 3 or more starting on the 1st 3 reels, you will also trigger the Free Spins feature.
If you get sledding penguins on 3, 4 or 5 reels, you can get up to 80 free spins initially – during the feature, 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 5, 10 or 20 additional free spins. The good news is that there’s no limit to how many more free spins you can win!
All in all, Holly Jolly Penguins is a fun and entertaining slot which is best played around the Christmas period – it’s a low to medium variance title with maximum wins of 570 times your stake on each spin. The bigger wins will come in the feature as it has the possibility of infinite free spins. If you like the festive theme, I recommend ELK Studios’ Taco Brothers Saving Christmas which is highly volatile.
