One of the most popular holidays in Canada is Thanksgiving, and the vast majority of us will be celebrating with our families and friends at the dinner table as we have done for generations. Playing slot machines based on the Thanksgiving holiday may be considered one of the many additional ways we could celebrate. Of course, there are plenty of other ways we could celebrate. If you share that opinion, we’ve compiled a list of three games that we believe you’ll find to be an especially good fit for you…
Gobbler’s Gone Wild is an Acronym
The roasted turkey has been the centerpiece of Thanksgiving dinners for years, and in this five-reel slot machine from High 5 Games, the feathered unfortunates have decided that they have had enough of being treated like second-class citizens. This year, they have decided to take a stance against the humans who chase them with culinary intents by putting up a battle that has the potential to set an entirely new standard for the holiday meals of the future.
There are multiple Turkey characters to choose from in this game, and each of them has the ability to morph into a wild if doing so would improve your chances of winning. In a twist of fate, the symbol with the highest payout in this game is a golden wishbone, which would imply that the player is supporting one of the two hunters who also appear on the reels. In any event, this is a comical and entertaining game with a terrific Free Spins feature that can be activated by getting three harvest symbols on the reels at the same time. The harvest symbols can appear anywhere on the reels. This slot machine is anything but a turkey thanks to the abundance of gobbling sound effects that play anytime you spin the reels.
A Bountiful Harvest
Microgaming’s slot machine, Sweet Harvest, with a greater emphasis on the harvest-related aspects of the Thanksgiving holiday. When you turn it on, you will be taken to a farm that has been fortunate enough to get a bountiful harvest. We are able to deduce this given that there is a plethora of vegetables seen on each of the five reels, with corn cobs and pumpkins of all sizes standing out notably. A human element is added to the game by the inclusion of three farm employees, and special symbols include a Harvest Bonus basket and a scatter representation of a conventional farm building.
Even though the Harvest Bonus symbols can only occur on the second and fourth reels of the slot machine, you will be awarded a random cash bonus each time one of these symbols appears.
If you are lucky enough to land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded three free games. During this portion of the game, two of the farmworkers will act as wilds, and they also have the ability to appear in stacked formations. If the two farmhands appear next to each other on the reels, any win that they assist you accomplish will have a multiplier added to it that is equal to two times the original amount.
Sweet Harvest is guaranteed to get you in the spirit of Thanksgiving thanks to its quaint images and pleasant soundtrack, which is done in a country music manner.
Turkey in the Wild
If you have ever wondered what type of life turkeys may have if they weren’t confined on farms, the book “Wild Turkey” presents a possibility, even though it is an unlikely one. In this five-reel game from Netent, a group of turkeys have established their own primitive tribe in a remote area of the country, and they have swiftly established their own self-contained society in which they prefer to worship a Wild Turkey totem. In this society, the turkeys are worshiping the totem as a way to bring good luck.
Yes, we are aware that this may seem a little bit insane; nonetheless, the slot machine functions properly, and the gameplay is very similar to that of a machine that would typically have a theme based on the Incas or the Aztecs. The standard playing card ranks are carved from stone and serve as the lower-paying symbols, while the higher-paying symbols are five turkeys who are getting dressed in a religious manner for their next worship service.
The golden Wild Turkey symbol is the secret to massive wins in this game. If you land 3, 4, or 5 of these symbols anywhere on the reels at the same time, you will be awarded 15, 30, or 60 free spins, respectively. Naturally, this symbol also works as a plain wild, which means that it can assist you win even if only one or two of its occurrences manage to land in a place where they can do so.
Even though this game has nothing to do with Thanksgiving in particular, we thought it would be appropriate to include it in this article because it demonstrates how risky it may be to be too lenient with turkeys. They may very well end up building a society that would make the society on Planet of the Apes look like a tea party if Thanksgiving were not there to keep them in check.
