The happy Holidays slot
On the eve of the New Year holidays, the world around us is changing. Many people forget about the autumn depression and begin active preparation for the best holiday of the year. Excellent pre-holiday mood is created by online casinos too, where the slots with New Year themes are becoming popular again. One of the most attractive is Happy Holidays slot, developed by a well-known Microgaming company. Here you can not only play with the goal of making money but also you will feel the magic atmosphere of New Year and Christmas.

New Year is the most long-awaited holiday. Many people associate it with magic and gifts. First of all, it is surrounded by the wonderful smell of tangerines and beautiful Christmas trees, which helps to create a festive mood. People of all ages truly believe that on New Year night their goals and wishes will come true. New Year is an international holiday, but in every country, it is celebrated in many different ways, and each family has its traditions.

For example, in Australia, people celebrate New Year on a beach or go on picnics with friends. In Italy, New Year begins on January 6. Here people believe in the good fairy Befana, who gives stars and gifts for everyone. In Israel, people eat only sweets and avoid bitter food. In Spain, on this day there is a tradition to swallow one grape every time the bell rings and make a wish. On New Year my family and I decorate the house and Christmas tree and give each other gifts, wishing success in New Year. So, let`s start playing it!

On five reels you will find such symbols: a smart Christmas tree, traditional socks with gifts and children`s winter rejoicing. Everything creates a special mood, which is peculiar only to this period of our life. The appearance of the slot machine resembles a window of a snow-covered house, in which, as on the screen, the story of the New Year`s fairytale unfolds.

Music, at first calming and light, then invigorating the bells of Christmas bells, are perceived harmoniously in a generally festive atmosphere, when one believes in a miracle and wants it to be always.
