Charles Dickens’ famous novel, A Christmas Carol is probably one of the most well-known Christmas stories in history. As such, many movies and even slots are based on it, centring around its protagonist, the stingy Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by 3 ghosts namely the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future who help him to see the error of his miserly ways and leave him filled with the Christmas spirit.
Playtech casinos like Europa Casino have recently launched their very own version of this classic tale in the form of the Ghosts of Christmas video slot which even offers an animated video clip which tells the story of the original novel. This is a truly well put together game and definitely looks set to join the ranks of the web’s most popular online slots in no time at all!
This 5 reel, 20 payline video slot is set against the backdrop of Scrooge’s mansion where he sits contemplatively in his armchair as the adventure unfolds before his eyes. On the reels, Scrooge is the Wild symbol and offers a generous jackpot of 10,000…and he starts to pay out when two symbols appear in a line from right to left…not bad for someone who is reputedly so miserly!
Another pivotal character Tiny Tim also makes an appearance as does the ghost of Marley as the scatter symbol which also activate the free spins feature when three or more appear. When this happens, all line and scatter payouts during the free spins feature are tripled. Three or more clock symbols on an active payline from the left reel activate the Ghost of Christmas bonus feature. This bonus feature depicts three different scenes depending on which ghost appears (past, present or future) and you will be required to make picks to reveal bonus credits.
The games is also packed with enthralling animations including Scrooge kissing a gold coin, The Ghost of Christmas drinking wine from a horn, and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come being depicted as Death, implying that if everyone in the world was like Scrooge, the spirit of Christmas would die.
