Deck the Halls Slot

Microgaming released its Deck the Halls slot in 2008, just in time for the festive season. The game features 5 reels and three rows, all set within a riot of Christmas green, red and gold, with themed symbols and a lovely soundtrack playing gently in the background.

Deck the Halls features an RTP of 95.38% and a variance that is considered quite high. Its max win limit of 2400000 will appeal to many but we feel this game’s biggest asset is its gorgeous theme that even the Grinch would enjoy.

How to Play Deck the Halls slot

If Christmas is your favourite time of year then the Deck the Halls slot will surely be a favourite! This festive-themed casino slot is built on a 5x3 reel structure and has 30 paylines. It is packed with Christmas-related touches from its symbol collection to its soundtrack.

Playing Deck the Halls is easy, even for those new to slots. Players can select their bet size, paylines, and coin sizes from the buttons along the bottom of the game screen. This is also where the Spin button can be found. The View Pays option launches the paytable and info area.


From wrapped presents to fir trees, bells and the jolly Santa Claus himself, this slot feels like it’s where Christmas hangs out 365 days a year. We can also see pine cones, warm lights, baubles on the Christmas tree, snowflakes and a welcoming fire place as symbols.

The game screen itself is lined with one long holly wreath and each of the paylines are marked with colourful baubles, giving the player the real spirit of Christmas in an engaging and relaxing slot game format.

Sound Effects

The soundtrack to Deck the Halls is a range of popular and recognisable Christmas songs, which really makes us want to curl up in front of the fireplace and enjoy the festivities. When the reels spin, they trigger a delightful shimmering sound. Each win is even more satisfying as the game plays the eponymous Deck the Halls Christmas carol to signify a positive result.

There’s not much more to say about the soundtrack of Deck the Halls really. If you want to be transported back to those cosy Christmas times, this is the perfect game to play with the sound on.


The wreath-lined Deck the Halls logo acts as the Wild symbol in this game and it substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter. Winning combos that include a Wild substitution will be doubled. The Santa Claus high value symbol appears stacked in both the base game and free spins feature.

Landing three or more Scatters (the golden bells), triggers the free spins feature with 10 bonus spins. All free spins wins are automatically doubled and stacked Wilds during free spins will add a x4 multiplier to any wins.

Verdict on Deck the Halls Slot

Microgaming’s Deck the Halls slot is very much a game suited to players who love Christmas or those looking to indulge in a bit of the festive spirit around December time. There are no half measures here - this slot is Christmassy to the max.

Aside from its theme, the game offers a thrilling combination of features and win multipliers that could see lucky players feeling like Christmas has come early. The high volatility nature of the game could mean long spells without a win but when they do show up, those successes will be significant.
