Where I am, I don't need any Summer Holiday, because every holiday is a summer holiday in my country. But I've stayed for several years in a cold country before, so I know exactly the kind of joy and rejoicing Summer can bring. Everybody would cramp the beaches, to enjoy the warm sun and the warm sea breeze. The ladies would aim in getting a good sun tan, with some ending up with sun burns instead. The guys, hmm, there couldn't be a better time for drooling over beautiful 'chicks' in skimpy bikinis. For most people, there's nothing like a good summer holiday, yet for some others, there's nothing better than a good Summer Holiday game. Is this one of them?
The logo 'Summer Holiday' is the Wild symbol, paying a low 750x the line bet for 5 of them. It comes stacked on all reels in the base game as well as in the Free Spins game, and substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter symbol. The Duck is the Scatter symbol, paying a nice 200x the total bet for 5 of them. Getting 3, 4 or 5 Ducks trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins with all wins tripled, and more free spins can be retriggered. The other symbols in the game pay from 400x to 40x the line bet for 5 of each kind. This paytable is low even for a 100-paylines game.
What is nice about this game, is that there's an additional feature after each and every Free Spins game played, the Pick-A-Prize feature. 3 options are available - Replay the Free Spins game, Collect the win, or try for the Mystery Prize, which can randomly pay from 10x up to 100x the total bet amount. Honestly speaking, if the Free Spins game paid very badly, then it may be best to choose the Mystery Prize next. I did this once, when the Free Spins game paid less than 10x my bet amount, so I went for the Mystery Prize and ended up with a better 35x my bet amount win.
The first thing that I didn't like about this Summer Holiday game was the absence of the 'Autoplay' option, then followed by the minimum starting bet of $1.00 per spin, which is very high indeed. Lastly, the 2 Free Spins games that I got paid 51x my bet amount, with 1 retriggering of the Free Spins game, and 6x my bet amount in the second Free Spins game, which was a complete disappointment. Luckily I went for the Mystery Prize after that and got a 35x bet win instead. All in all, Summer Holiday still wasn't that good to me, or for me either.
