It is commonplace nowadays to see slot and casino games based on pre-existing film franchises and television shows. Recent years have seen games such as Game of Thrones, or Vikings. What we don’t tend to see is many games based on Charles Dickens novels from the mid-1800s. BetSoft, however, have decided that A Christmas Carol was the perfect title to turn into a slot game.
The main character in the book is an old grumpy rich man called Ebenezer Scrooge. Here, like in the book, he has to meet the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future (more on them later) to move forward in his quest.
Like many BetSoft games, A Christmas Carol slot game has a great background, with well designed reels and symbols. It also has some great feature bonuses, so it not only looks good, but is a fun game to play. In this A Christmas Carol review, we’ll look to inform bettors how the game is played, and what the return to player (RTP) rate is.
A Christmas Carol Free Play
Before we go too far, it is important to stress that if anyone is new to playing slot games online, they might want to try the A Christmas Carol free play version, where they can practice playing the game without risking any of their own money.
The A Christmas Carol slot game is a three row and five reel video slot, with 25 paylines. The lower value symbols are the 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Matching five Aces will result in a payout of 150 coins. The higher value symbols are the Christmas Presents, Gold Coins, a Gold Bell, then Ebeneezer himself. Landing three of his symbols rewards players with 300 coins, four is worth 500 coins, and in the unlikely chance of landing his symbol on all five reels, bettors will be awarded an impressive 1,000 coins.
It wouldn’t be a very thorough A Christmas Carol game review without mentioning the bonus features BetSoft have programmed into the game. The Wild symbol is the Roast Turkey, which will replace any other symbol on the reels to help make winning combinations. Matching five Turkeys is also worth 2,400 coins.
Any wins in the main game can be doubled, or lost, in the Heads of Tails gamble, where guessing the flip of a coin correctly leads to a X2 multiplier.
Each Ghost has their own symbol and feature. The Ghost of Christmas Past and the Ghost of Christmas Future both trigger Free Spins (three symbols = five, four = six, five = twelve). Then the Ghost of Christmas Present is slightly different, and is triggered by a green Ghost appearing; land three of these,and the symbols will all turn wild.
The RTP rate for the A Christmas Carol slot game is 94.58%
