Last month Microgaming announced that four new slot games will be released on July 1. True to its word all four games were live at Microgaming online casinos as scheduled. Players have had time to check out the games and Summer Holiday seems to be the slot game that everyone is heading to.
This is not surprising because slot game has features that would immediately attract players. First of all it has 100 paylines. This is only the second Microgaming online slot with 100 paylines. The first one was Cashapillar, which was released about a year back. Because of the 100 paylines, the slot game has four rows of symbols instead of the usual three. This also creates a difference and any difference attracts. The final instant draw is it is theme. Summer Holiday has been released in time for the summer holiday.
The theme has been perfectly executed. The slot begins with an introductory video clip. The symbols on the reels appear as photographs in a holiday album. When the reels appear the experience is simply mind blowing. The lake which forms the background to the reels is so realistic and inviting that players would want to dive in. The symbols on the reels are equally realistic and chosen with care. They express two different aspects of a summer holiday. One is the various outdoor activities like boating, biking, fishing and swimming. The other is the refreshing and tasty foods that form an integral part of the holiday.
The wild symbol, which is the Summer Holiday logo, is really wild. It has been fashioned perfectly to evoke everything that a summer holiday stands for. Its animation is pure fun and a treat to watch. And there are plenty of the wild symbols on the reels. The wild symbol appears stacked and hence usually fills the entire reel. Quite often players will see two or even three reels full of the yellow summer holiday logo dancing merrily as they indicate winning combinations. When the stacked wild symbols appear on the first two reels the payouts are enormous. On the flipside when these symbols do not appear on the reels there are usually no payouts.
Summer Holiday offers a free spins bonus round that is fairly standard. The number of free spins depends on the number of scatter symbols on the reels. The payouts are tripled and the free spins can be retriggered. There is no bonus game on the second screen but players are given an intriguing choice to make after the free spins are over. They can either collect their winnings or take a chance and try to enhance them. If they decide to do the latter, then they can take the free spins again or can opt for a mystery prize.
One feature missing in Summer Holiday is the Microgaming Expert Mode that has the auto play. Summer Holiday can be played at all Microgaming online casinos.
