Thanksgiving Slots Worth Celebrating With
mon 12 oct 2020
Thanksgiving is one of Canada’s favourite holidays, and the vast majority of us will spend it celebrating with our family and friends around the traditional Thanksgiving dinner table. Of course, there are plenty of other ways in which we can celebrate, and playing slots with a Thanksgiving theme
could be one of them. If you agree with that sentiment, here are three games that we think you’ll find particularly suitable…
Gobbler’s Gone Wild
The roast turkey has been the main dish at Thanksgiving dinners for centuries, and in this five-reel slot from High 5 Games, the feathered unfortunates have decided that enough is enough. This year they will stand up to the humans who pursue them with culinary intentions by putting up a fight that could set a whole new precedent for future festive menus.
This game features several turkey characters, each of which can transform into a wild if doing so would help you land a win. Ironically, the best-paying symbol in this game is a golden wishbone, which would suggest that the player is taking the side of one of the two hunters who also appear on the reels. Whatever the case, this is a humorous and fun-filled title with a great Free Spins feature that can be triggered by getting three harvest symbols on the reels at the same time. Throw in plenty of gobbling sound effects whenever you spin, and this slot is anything but a turkey.
Sweet Harvest from Microgaming focuses more on the harvest side of the Thanksgiving holiday. Fire it up, and you will be transported to a farm that has been blessed with a bumper crop. We know that because vegetables are present in abundance on the five reels, with heads of corn and large pumpkins being particularly prominent. Three farm workers provide a human element to the game, and special symbols include a Harvest Bonus basket, and a traditional farm building scatter.
The Harvest Bonus symbols only appear on the second and fourth reels, but whenever one of them shows up, you will win a random cash prize.
Land three or more scatter symbols on the reels, and you will trigger three free spins
. Two of the farmworkers will serve as wilds during this part of the game, and they can also appear stacked. Should both farmworkers appear next to each other on the reels, any win that they help you to achieve will be improved by a 2x multiplier.
Featuring homely visuals and a nice country-style soundtrack, Sweet Harvest can’t fail to get you in the Thanksgiving mood.
If you have ever wondered what kind of life turkeys might have if they weren’t imprisoned on farms, Wild Turkey suggests a possibility, albeit an unlikely one. In this five-reel game from Netent
, a group of turkeys have set up their own primitive tribe in a remote part of the country, and they have quickly established a self-contained society in which they like to worship a Wild Turkey totem.
Yes, we know that sounds a bit mad, but the slot works well, and it plays much like one that would normally have a theme inspired by the Incas or Aztecs. The lower-paying symbols are the usual playing card ranks carved from stone, but the higher paying symbols are five turkeys who are ceremonially dressed for their next worship session.
A golden Wild Turkey symbol is the key to big wins in this game because it will give you 15, 30 or 60 free spins when you land 3, 4 or 5 on the reels at once. Of course, this symbol also serves as a straightforward wild, so it can also help you to win even if just one or two happen to land in a useful position.
While this game isn’t explicitly related to Thanksgiving, we’re including it here because it shows just how potentially dangerous it could be to give the turkeys too much slack. Without Thanksgiving to keep them in check, they could well end up creating a society that would make Planet of the Apes look like a tea party.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
The three slots highlighted here are all well worth a spin and should make it fairly effortless to get into a festive frame of mind. Play today (Videoslots Casino would be our first port of call on this occasion), and you might also win a prize or two that you can be thankful for.
