Holiday Ride slot REVIEW

Holiday Ride ReviewWell, for some reason, and it’s not all that hard to imagine why, perhaps, Pragmatic Play has decided to launch a new version of their recent Via Del Corso. We are in the middle of the summer holiday season after all (at least in Europe), so a game like this may appeal to those who’re stuck at home for whatever reason. Perhaps the title of the original game was too “obscure”, or perhaps the timing was slightly off. Either way, Holiday Ride is exactly the same game.

You’re once again taken on a Vespa ride through Rome, although you're stuck in the same place most of the time. The Vespa ride happens when the bonus round triggers, and it comes with additive multiplier wilds that roam around per spin after they land. You get multiplier wilds up to x5 also in the base game, and the max win is still 5,000x your stake. Holiday Ride is decently charming, but we doubt this new release will make a major splash either.

Holiday Ride Slot Features

The Ante Bet feature can be turned on between any base game spin, and you will pay 40 % extra per spin if you decide to keep it on. This doubles your bonus round chances though, so it’s definitely something to consider. The top-tier symbols pay between 4 and 30 x your stake for 5 on a payline, and the Vespa Wild symbol substitutes for pay symbols to help complete and/or improve line wins.

The above-mentioned Vespa Wild has a few more tricks up its sleeve, as we shall see below, and it can land on all 5 reels. Firstly, the wild pays 40x your stake for 5 wilds on a payline, and it also pays a 10x or 4x your stake for 4 or 3 on a payline, respectively. In addition, wilds land with multipliers of x2, x3, or x5 attached, and these are additive multipliers that boost any line win they are part of.

You need 3 scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 to trigger the Bonus Round, and this takes you to a screen with 9 firework crates. Each crate explodes one after another, and this gives you between 1 to 3 free spins added to your total per crate. In practice, this means that you will get between 9 and 27 free spins per bonus round trigger. All wilds become persistent roaming wilds in the bonus round, and they come with multiplier values up to x5.

On a final note, you cannot retrigger or win extra spins during the feature, but non-UK players can take advantage of the Bonus Buy option. This will set you back 100x the stake, and you’ll find the bonus buy sign/button on the left-hand side, right below the Ante Bet sign.

The 200 Spins Holiday Ride Slot Experience

Nothing too exciting happened for us in the base game, so you can safely skip to the 0:30-mark, where we purchase and trigger the bonus round. We got 10 free spins from the firework crates, and we also landed multiple roaming multiplier wilds after some spins. You can check it all out for yourself by hitting the play button below.

Review Summary

Reskin jobs are a dime a dozen in this business, but pure re-title jobs are not something you see too often. We are reminded of how online newspapers will often change the headline of the same story throughout the 24 hour news cycle, in an attempt to keep the story fresh while optimizing for clicks. Via Del Corso had its wide release only a few months ago after all, and perhaps Pragmatic jumped the gun in that regard. Holiday Ride is the exact same game, but the title has been changed to make it abundantly clear what this game is about.

It’s a holiday ride through Italy on a Vespa, with the Colosseum seen on the left-hand side. It would’ve been more fun if you could visit different famous locations this time, but sadly no such upgrades have been made. You get the tried and tested multiplier wilds in the base game, and they become persistently roaming multiplier wilds in the bonus round. Simple as that. You can still win up to 5,000x your stake, and it will be interesting to see if the timing of this release makes a difference when it comes to the reception.
