A Christmas Carol Slots
During the holiday season, many people like to watch the classic holiday movie A Christmas Carol, and thanks to developer Betsoft, online players can now get their Scrooge fix by playing A Christmas Carol Slots. This 5-reel, 25-payline slot has two different free spin rounds and a Double or Nothing feature. Once again, Betsoft has taken a heavily used theme and made it look brand new all over again.
A Wagering System That Even Scrooge Would Like
Coin sizes for A Christmas Carol Slots range from $0.01 to $1, but players who like to bet big will be happy to hear that this slot allows for up to five coins per payline. These wagering options bring the max wager per spin to $125, more than enough for all but the biggest bettors. With a $0.01 coin, penny players can play all the paylines for only $0.25; many of the newer titles by Betsoft start at a coin size of $0.02, giving this slot game a high value for small bankrolls.
Where is Tiny Tim?
The symbols of A Christmas Carol Slots include some of the notable characters in the classic story; not only will players find Scrooge on the reels of this title, but also The Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future. Bettors will also see 10 to K symbols decked out in holiday finery, Presents, Bells, and Coins on the reels. The scatter symbol is the sign that hangs in front of Scrooge's place of business, and the Roasted Goose is the wild symbol that can replace all icons except the ghost symbols. This reviewer wonders how an iconic character such as Tiny Tim didn't make it onto the reels, but the excellent game design otherwise speaks for itself.
A Bonus Feature for Each Ghost of Christmas
Players who love games with multiple bonus features will want to give this title a spin, as it not only has three distinct bonus features, but all three of these features can trigger within one another.
- When bettors find three or more Christmas Past symbols appear on the reels, the Christmas Past Feature will trigger, and players can receive 3, 6, or 12 spins with a multiplier equal to the amount of symbols on the reels. The Christmas Past and Christmas Future features can trigger within these spins. The Past and Future features occur after the initial bonus finishes; if a Christmas Present triggers, it is played immediately, and the bettor finishes the initial bonus round.
- When three or more Christmas Future symbols show on the reels, the Christmas Future bonus triggers and bettors will receive 3, 6, or 12 free spins with a multiplier equal to the number of Christmas Future symbols. This bonus guarantees a payline win, or a feature retrigger on all Christmas Future free spins. Again, the other two rounds can trigger within this feature. Christmas Present plays immediately, and then the player finishes the original bonus, and the Christmas Past feature plays after the Christmas Future ends.
- The Christmas Present bonus appears when three or more Christmas Present symbols occur on the reels. This feature does not award any free spins but instead turns all the ghost symbols into wilds, and then the wins for this feature are resolved and paid.
The Integrated Bonus Features Give Extra Value
The three bonus features and how they interact to make this a title that small bettors will love. A Christmas Carol is a game that can look confusing at first glance, but it doesn't take long to acclimate to this title. There is good potential for some massive paydays with this slot, and it may be unwise to pass this one up.
