Visually speaking, Holly Jolly Penguins does a really good job at creating that xmas spirit. The festive soundtrack also helps in this aspect. This slot is set in the North Pole, so it stands to reason that the symbols featured here be on the same wavelength. Symbols on the reels include a variety of different penguins (we can only assume are holly jolly). Each penguin is different in appearance thus separating them in a numerical sense as well as in a visual sense. The 2 sledding penguins symbol is this slots scatter symbol: the key in unlocking the free games features mentioned previously.
