Out of all the new games that are being announced these days, I found Happiest Christmas Tree to be one of my favorites. The game not only offers some excellent graphics, without relying on Royals for a lot of its symbols like others do, but it also has its own little angle story wise, thanks to the focus on the Christmas tree, and not on Santa. It’s one of Habanero’s releases, a slot machine which seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
They came up with a system which involves the use of 40 paylines for 5x3 reels. The game will rely on several fixed jackpots which can end up paying a fair amount, even up to 250x the stake, but there will be regular combinations offering rewards as well, and in the process it will help the slot be among the best paying releases this holiday season, as the RTP seems to indicate. Whether it’s via wild symbols, scatters or free spins, the slot seems to have a regular mix of features inside, so on that count it’s as much of a traditional title as most games.
Betting and Prizes
You will have to use 40 active lines and at least 40 coins for each round. The slot will allow for you to select more than 1 coin per line, just as it lets you pick the value for them. It can be a low wager type of game, with $0.40 being the starting point for its betting. It can also be an expensive proposition, if past Habanero releases are anything to go by.
The slot will have its own regular combinations to offer, but for now let’s take a look at the fixed jackpots which are going to be paid out, the best ones reaching a maximum of 250x the stake. It’s a decent sized reward, and it appears to be associated with the Bell symbol. The lower paying jackpots get images of Christmas globes, the Moon or stars, with which they’re associated in the slot’s feature that will lead to them triggering.
One very important aspect of the game is the RTP, especially since it’s one of the highest you will see in the Christmas slot category. The figure which is being quoted for this slot machine is 97.88%, so based on this alone, I would recommend you try this game out over most other slots being released for Christmas.
Happiest Christmas Tree Slot Features
Feature wise, I mostly found regular options in the game, and it all starts with the Wild Logo which may appear on all reels. It can form winning combinations, and it can be a replacement symbol as well, so it behaves in the usual manner for a substitute feature.
There are also scatters present though, and you may use those to get access to the slot’s free spins. As usual, 3 scatters will be sufficient to get you into the feature.
Theme & Design
As for the theme that’s used here, the story revolves around a very happy Christmas tree, which is fulfilling its purpose. It’s a game which uses only related symbols inside, delivering icons with toys and decorations. The Christmas tree is in one symbol, while in others you can see decorations such as bells, globes, stars or Moons. There are also toy soldiers, drums, toy trains and teddy bears among its symbols. Overall, a good theme which has been expertly implemented, and I found the game to be a lot of fun thanks to its modern design.
Happiest Christmas Tree is a must-play slot machine this upcoming holiday season, thanks not just to its theme and graphics, but to its very high RTP as well.
