Open a new winning chapter with A Christmas Carol!
Everyone knows the well-loved Charles Dickens tale, A Christmas Carol, but did you know that it’s now a video slot from Betsoft as well? That’s right, place your bets on A Christmas Carol this season, and you’ll be able to go in search of the winnings of Christmas past, present and future!
Set in Scrooge’s bedroom, just as parts of the original story are as well, the slot features the character of Scrooge himself, as well as five reels and 25 paylines to play with. In terms of symbols, the low-paying playing cards will pay up to 150 coins for five Aces, while other symbols such as the Christmas gifts, gold coins and gold bell will pay out 400 coins, 500 coins and 800 coins respectively for five symbols on the reels. Finally there’s the famous Scrooge symbol, which, despite its miserly name, will pay out up to 1 000 coins for five symbols on the reels!
Aside from generous payouts, A Christmas Carol also has much to offer in the bonus department as well, starting with the turkey symbol that doubles as the wild, paying out whenever it completes a winning combination. It’s also rewarding enough on its own, as finding three, four or five will pay you 800, 1 200, or 2 400 coins respectively.
There’s also a gamble feature to look forward to if you’re feeling lucky – your opportunity to double any winnings in the base game. Simply guess whether a coin flip will result in heads or tails, and you’ll either win a 2x multiplier for your existing winnings, or the amount you’ve won will be taken away from you and stored in Scrooge’s bank – so choose wisely!
Of course it wouldn’t be A Christmas Carol without the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future – which is why in the video slot you’ll find three bonus games to match. Here’s how they work:
Ghost of Christmas Past: Find three to trigger 3 free spins, four to trigger 6, and five to trigger an amazing 12 free spins, spinning backwards to represent the past.
Ghost of Christmas Present: Find three and all the ghosts on the reels will become wild, helping you complete more winning combinations.
Ghost of Christmas Future: Again, find three to trigger 3 free spins, four to trigger 6, and five to trigger an amazing 12 free spins, this time spinning forwards to represent the future.
A Christmas Carol stays true to the Dickens tale, and provides good festive fun and cracking good winnings at the same time – everything you need in a Christmas-themed slot, and hopefully everything you need to make the season a merry one as well!
Remember, in order to end the year on a high note and start the New Year in the same way, make sure that you still stick to a budget whenever you play. We know how tiring the end of the year can be, but it’s just as important as always to set yourself wagering limits and to stick to them. Also, don’t fall into the trap of celebrating too early, particularly over party season. Make sure you stick to soft drinks while you’re gambling to help you keep a clear head – then once you’re done spinning the reels, you can switch to something a little stronger. Keep these tips in mind and whether you win or lose, you’ll always come out on top!
Happy Spinning 🙂
