Welcome to Bar Humbug, CAshman_eq’s take on the classic Astra slots PartyTime and Hokey Cokey.
Well if Astra can just keep reskinning slots… badly, then why can’t I :-p
Well, I say badly CAshman_eq don’t make bad slots, be sure and check it out for yourself.
In this slot play the quite depressing (but hopefully in an amusing way) lower reels, governed by his miserableness old Ebenezer. But fear not much to his protesting every now and then a little bit of Christmas magic will happen. Where you will be propelled away on Santas sleigh to the top reels. Where magical things can happen.
|Number Of Reels||6 (3 Bottom & 3 Top)||Yes|
|Nudges||Yes (Always Awards 3)||Yes|
|Magic Nuges / Nudge Setups||Yes – Nudges in wins from anything up to 5 nudges away||Yes|

|3 Holds (Same Symbols)||Matches Pair||Yes|
|Feature Entry||Ramdomly awarded with win on lower reels||Yes|
Magic Nudges are one of the quirks of this slot. Would you think that 3 nudges shown below would get you a win that is actually 4 spaces away? Well as with Partytime this slot will.
Well, they do and Astra calls them Magic Nudges. There are many different setups that allow these nudges on all wins, be it X’s or Bars/Astras and believe it or not there are actually a double fingers number of setups on the Jackpot itself. Through playing this game you will come to learn all about, and all of these setups, which you can then use in the real world, they are all here for you to learn about.
Bear in mind with the above these same setups work on the whole Astra Range
PartyTime ClassicPartyTime Arena
They are also still just as relevant to the latest slots Astra are releasing. As they are generally titled imaginatively like “Classic PartyTime”. Where they still use the exact same reel layout’s and thus nudge setups and combinations. Personally, I think this is because the older machines are getting on now, so they need replacing. Why would anyone upset a formula that has worked for so long? Just make new machines that do the exact same thing. Fair play to them I say, at least they aren’t doing the Bell-Fruit thing where they take the best bits of the slot, throw them away and then polish up a turd from what is left.
Top Reels / Feature
Here you have the chance to make the big money, or not in my little dabble below.
Rest assured the biggie will come 🙂
Playing at the same stake as the bottom reels, you are guaranteed at least one win, but you will in most cases will a whole heap more.
As I’m sure we have all seen these machines are renowned for going crazy and paying out Jackpot after Jackpot after Jackpot.
App Playing Advice
● Enhanced % mode This mode is very similar to 101% mode on my other slots. But in this case, it gives you a random payout percentage of generally between 101 and 120%. However, with this special edition over the Christmas Period (Dec 1st to January 5th) you will receive some eye-watering percentages on this slot. Can you find it?
● Go crazy (you will never be asked for any money!) – it’s entirely free to play. By the same logic, you will also never receive any winnings. It is purely a look and feel simulation, purely for fun.
Below are a couple of videos to help you get up and running with your new slot. Should you need anything further please do not hesitate to get in touch.
