A Christmas Carol Slots
Have you heard of a guy called Scrooge? He must surely be one of the most famous characters ever created. He was the brainchild of a writer by the name of Charles Dickens - one of the most famous writers we know of. Scrooge appears in the novel A Christmas Carol, along with many other famous characters. Can we meet them all in the slot game version of the same story?
The slot was created by Betsoft and is one of their great 3D titles you can check out over the festive season.
Is there a practice version you can look at?
You can do more than look - you can play it to see what the slot game holds in store for you. Use the practice credits pre-loaded into the game to see how it works.
We needn't tell you much here - we've already revealed the festive theme revolves around Scrooge and his story.
Should we expect an impressive design?
We should, and we are not disappointed. We find ourselves inside Scrooge's bedroom… in fact, he is looking suitably miserable in bed! He's holding a candle too, looking out at the reels, or possibly through the window beyond. There is a snowy scene out there on Christmas Eve.
Learning the basics of A Christmas Carol slots
There are five reels, set off center, with no progressives involved in proceedings. No festive season would be complete without a bronzed turkey, and you'll see just that acting as the wild here. It is also given a label, making it even easier to spot. Wouldn't it be great if we had smelly slots?! Only the ghosts cannot be substituted by this turkey.
There are three scatters in this game, and if you know the story behind this slot, you can probably guess what each one is called:
• The Ghost of Christmas Past • The Ghost of Christmas Future • The Ghost of Christmas Present
You need three of each ghost to trigger the associated feature.
Paylines are fixed
They are, indeed… and there are 25 of them.
The smallest coin comes in at two cents, while you can also head north to reach a dollar. Each line can take up to five coins, so there are multiple betting options available in this slot game.
Everything is explained in the paytable
Just look for the VIEW PAYS option at the top of the screen. This gives you the chance to access the table to read more about the game.
Does the game have a bonus feature?
Yes, and the Christmas Present ghost is the key to triggering it. Find three of those and all ghosts appearing on the reels will go wild. You are then awarded any prizes that result from the extra wilds on the screen.
Two chances of some free spins
Finding three, four, or five Christmas Past scatters will get you three, six, or 12 freebies. You can expect to secure at least one prize on every spin here. It can be triggered again, along with the chance to score other features.
Unusually, you can also trigger the same quantities of free games whenever you find three, four, or five Christmas Future scatters. The same rules apply, with a prize in every spin.
RTP value for A Christmas Carol online slot game
It looks to be at around 94.58%.
Our rating for this game - is it a turkey or a winner?
This is a clear winner for us, with 9 out of 10 awarded. We'd give it 10 out of 10 if there was some variation in the free game options and perhaps a second screen bonus too.
How can you trigger some good prizes?
The trick seems to be to find as many scattered Past or Future icons as you can. This would lead to more of those free games where one prize is guaranteed on each spin.
