A Christmas Carol Slots
A Christmas Carol emulates the famous books of Charles Dickens and was created by BetSoft. They have cleverly crafted it into a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot with inspired bonus features and incredible details in the background and reels to bring this classic story to life. Symbols are animated when wins are seen on its reels. Even between spins, the man in bed holding a candle reacts to winning combinations, but his biggest reactions come with bonus features as ghosts appear in his bedroom. Winning combinations are increased with wilds, a past and future ghost feature and an additional wild feature that occurs during any of the bonuses. Jackpot winnings are also highly impressive offering up to 2,400 coins for 5 wild turkey symbols. Look for this slot with both mobile and PC options.
A Christmas Carol astounds with remarkable winning opportunities during standard play and bonus features. We found winnings are easy to come by but don’t always feature the best amounts. The features, on the other hand, impress each time, some even offering guaranteed winnings with each spin.
The standard wilds appearing as the turkey as well appear on any reels to offer additional combinations by replacing itself with other symbols. None of the ghost symbols are enabled to use the feature as they offer additional bonuses. The wilds don’t appear as often as we hoped, but did make an appearance once in a while during which it was unable to complete a win. The green ghost offers an additional wild feature as is known as the Christmas present symbol. When 3 or more appear all ghost symbols (including past and future ghosts) will turn wild for bigger payouts and possibly jackpot winnings.
The ghost features present the icing on the cake for the game. Not only do these provide the most astonishing animations in the background, but they also provide the bets rewards the game has to offer. Other than the present ghost explained above, players will find the past ghost represented by the young boy. He activates 3 to 12 free spins, which guarantees combinations or additional bonuses with each spin. The reels spin backwards in the game to feature the past. Future ghost symbols appear in blue with an older man. These also trigger 3 to 12 free games when at least 3 are revealed. The reels spin forward as per usual and guaranteed winnings occur with each spin. Here additional bonuses can also be activated.
A Christmas Carol embodies an impressive experience for any video slot player. We feel the 2 free spins feature could have had more differences, but both are rewarding and the animations in each definitely set them apart. The remaining features and rewards are fairly standard except for the present ghost wild feature that triggers many more opportunities when featured. Our rating: 90/100
