Holly Jolly Penguins Slot Game Background
The Holly Jolly Penguins slot game is the brainchild of developer Fortune Factory Studios, creating online slots exclusively for Microgaming (the studio behind Immortal Romance, Lucky Leprechaun and Mega Moolah). Fortune Factory Studios styles itself as a creator of slots that combine intuitive, engaging gameplay with - in their words - a dash of whimsy, mischief, and humor. Holly Jolly Penguins is a prime example of this philosophy, mixing a highly stylized presentation with exciting bonus features and mechanics. A quick look at the other slot games we have on the Lottomart site from Fortune Factory Studios - Mask of Amun for example - also bears this out.
Holly Jolly Penguins Slot Game Design
Holly Jolly Penguins is a 5-reel, 3-row online slot game with 45 paylines and a potential maximum win of 1,000x the bet value per line.
The seasonal slot whisks players away to an icy lake at the North Pole; distant snow-capped mountains can be seen far away. On the left-hand side of the lake stands a tall and fully decorated Christmas Tree; another one can be glimpsed on the right-hand side of the screen, although it's mostly hidden away out of sight. The top-right of the screen reveals an igloo with Christmas lights strung around it. Colorful Christmas presents - some opened, some not - are strewn here and there along the banks of the lake.
The 5x3 game grid dominates the screen and is set against a frame composed of familiar Christmas decorations. The reels comprise symbols featuring the holly jolly penguins engaged in various fun activities - sledding, caroling, juggling (snowballs), bell ringing, etc. In a neat touch, the royal playing card symbols are colorful, stylized, and decorated with Christmas lights.
Finally, the slot features whimsical Christmas music that plays whether you’re spinning the reels in the base game or not. The music adopts a more uptempo and upbeat feel during the bonus rounds. Ambient sounds are kept to a minimum and are used mainly when the reels come to a stop after a spin.

Holly Jolly Penguins Slot Symbols
The game has twelve symbols, all fitting the Christmastime theme to a tee; we’ll start from the bottom and work our way up.
Low Paying Symbols
- 10 - A playing cards = these symbols have a payout of between 1x - 1.8x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.
Mid Paying Symbols
- Snowball hurling, bauble carrying and bellringing penguins = these symbols have a payout of 2x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.
High Paying Symbols
- Christmas present opening penguin = this symbol has a payout of 3.5x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Christmas Tree wearing penguin = this symbol has a payout of 4.5x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels.
- Candy cane carrying penguin = this is one of the slot’s two Wild symbols. It has a payout of 20x the stake for 5-of-a-kind on the reels and substitutes for all other symbols apart from the other Wild symbol and the slot’s Scatter symbol.
- Carolling penguin = this is the slot’s second Wild symbol. Its attributes are the same. Landing 5 mixed Wild symbols (so a combination of the candy cane carrying and caroling penguins) on the reels has a payout of 10x the stake.
- Sledding penguin = the slot’s Scatter symbol, this little merry-making bird is responsible for triggering the Free Spins feature.
Holly Jolly Penguins Slot Bonus Features
The main feature in Holly Jolly Penguins is the Free Spins bonus round.
The feature is triggered when the sledding penguin Scatter lands on 3, 4, or 5 adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel. This awards 5, 10, or 20 Free Spins respectively. The good news is that the Scatter symbols can appear stacked, and since it’s possible to land up to a total of 7 at the same time, players can potentially win a mammoth 80 Free Spins from a single spin!
Also, it’s possible to multiply the number of Free Spins. This depends on the number of Scatter symbols that land on specific reels. 2 Scatter symbols on reels 2 or 3 multiplies the number of spins awarded by 2. 2 Scatter symbols on reel 2 and 2 Scatter symbols on reel 3 multiplies the number of spins awarded by 4. Finally, Free Spins can be re-triggered an unlimited amount of times as well.
Holly Jolly Penguins Slot Summary
The Holly Jolly Penguins online slot is an ice-cool entry by Fortune Factory Studios that rightly deserves its place among the plethora of Christmas-themed slot games.

Second, Holly Jolly Penguins boasts a thrilling (or is that chilling) Free Spins bonus round in which it’s possible to land 80 spins on a single spin and that has the potential to be triggered indefinitely. Finally, the online slot is an exciting and fun title to play, especially around the festive season, cementing Fortune Factory Studios’ reputation as a developer that creates cutting-edge slot games full of whimsy and humor alongside thrilling bonus features and mechanics.
