New Year's Bash Review
You'll struggle to find anyone who doesn't love celebrating the New Year. You gain the chance to get a fresh start and celebrate the passing of a New Year in style with your loved ones.
This is exactly what Habanero thought when developing New Year's Bash. This luxury slot plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines and features a free spins mode that can reach up to 90 spins - what's not to love?
When the slot opens, you'll find yourself on a balcony of a beautiful building looking out at the scenery to see various fireworks and decorations for the celebration. There are also building in the view that looks decadent and there are subtle animations that fit in brilliantly with the slot.
As you can imagine, all the symbols are related to celebrating with champagne bottles and fireworks from across the world such as London and New York. It's all completely fitting and done tastefully well.
Thankfully, the music is subtle and not too obnoxious with bells, violins and classically whimsical music fueling the slot.
This slot is absolutely perfect if you are a newcomer to online slots and want something straightforward with rewards. The main feature is the free spins round that is completely easy to follow without too many complicated aspects.
It should be worth noting that the buttons on the bottom bar can be a little confusing especially with the bet level. They also don't stop once you've reached the max or minimum as they revert to the next number which can be dangerous - so just be careful when setting this.
It may come as a shock that this slot actually features low volatility meaning that you can expect frequent wins but nothing too large. The RTP is a respectable 96.75% - but this can be lowered if the Jackpot Race is attached to the game.
As for the maximum win, you can win up to 21,265x your stake according to the developers through the free spins round. We were surprised that we triggered free spins multiple times within our 200 spins of the demo.
New Year's Bash is a delight to play and wonderful for newcomers or seasoned players who prefer simple gameplay. The design is spectacular and the gameplay is thrilling at times.
This combined with the win potential makes it an absolutely wonderful slot. If there were multipliers or additional features, then this would've been even better.
However, don't let this put you off in the slightest as the slot is thoroughly rewarding and a must-play if you love fun slots that don't take themselves too seriously.
