Epic Holiday Party Slots
We think you will agree that Epic Holiday Party is indeed an epic title for a slot game. But is this going to be one to remember for the best reasons? We can reveal this isn't just about a party on vacation, although a party is certainly involved. To find out more, read our complete review here, so you can see whether this is one party you would like a ticket to attend.
Developer info revealing more about the game
We have another epic game here from Realtime Gaming.
Is there a demo version of this party?
You can bet there is, so we recommend you load that up first to see how it all plays out when you spin the reels. Obviously, the experience you have with the demo does not reflect what may happen in the real game.
Have you worked out the theme yet?
The holiday part of the title is a clue, but if you're thinking of a festive slot game, you are only halfway there. They've got New Year's Eve thrown in as well, so this is a real festive game with many relevant touches to the graphics too.
Speaking of design…
Brilliant graphics really help a game with some punch, and we think there is ample punch here for sure. The party idea goes through most aspects of the game, with the suggestion of Christmas there too, yet not overshadowing the entire game.
How can you play this game?
The game has the usual five-reel format, so that much should be familiar to you. There is plenty more happening though. Next to the first reel, we have four people who look as if they're on a reel of their own. On the other side of the reels, next to the fifth one, there are four jackpots - progressive ones.
We are treated to two wilds in this game - a bag filled with gold and a snow globe. The gold can appear on reels two, three, and four, while the snow globe can only appear on the middle reel. As for wild multipliers, only the snow globe can give you one of those when contributing to a prize.
All festive periods should have a Christmas tree, and this game uses one of those as a scatter symbol.
Paylines or ways to win?
We have way wins here, so you get 243 possible ways to collect prizes per spin.
Make sure you understand the wagers before you play
This is important because there are a lot of options here. If you play the cheapest wager, amounting to eight cents per spin, you won't get a chance to play for any of the progressive jackpots. Each of the four characters we mentioned earlier connects with one of the jackpots. The idea is that you choose a character and play the bet associated with them. So, if you want to play for all four jackpots, you'll need to play a much higher bet.
This is where a few spins of the demo game come in useful. It gives you a chance to try these features to see how choosing different bet levels can affect the potential outcome.
What will you make of the paytable?
As with all other paytables in RTG games, it gives you the facts about the game before you play. We would always suggest checking that out, even after reading our full review of the game here.
No bonuses in Epic Holiday Party slots
Not much else to say there.
Free spins in Epic Holiday Party
You can get some of these, thanks to the Christmas tree scatter symbol. Find three of those and you'll get 12 free games. It seems the wild symbols are more likely to drop onto the reels in these games as well, so that's a cool thing to note.
RTP info for the slot game
RTG slots never reveal this info, but many of them appear to be around 95% in the return to player value. We tend to see that drop a little across the board when playing progressive jackpot slots, so consider that too.
Does this slot game earn a decent rating from us?
There are progressive slot games that do not ask for a bigger bet from the player to put them in with a chance to get a jackpot. So, we're knocking off a point for that here. The features are excellent though, with nothing too involved to get to grips with during the game. We think a 7/10 rating would be about right.
Who are the biggest winners?
Everyone wants to get their hands on the largest of the four jackpots, but any of them would be cool to receive. We'll let you know if we find out about any major winners appearing.
The demo game is enough to get things started
This party is great to see in full swing, but the demo game is the right way to start. It has a real sense of what it might be like to play the real version. Just treat it as an introduction rather than anything else.
Play for real when you find the party at an RTG casino
If you can join an RTG-powered casino, you should find this among the slots there. Check the wagers and see how many of those progressives you may wish to play for.
You can also play on mobile
RTG has made sure the two most popular platforms - iOS and Android - can play the game on smartphones and tablets.
