Ghosts Of Christmas Slots

Ghosts-of-ChristmasGhosts of Christmas is a modern slot machine, with a design that isn’t pleasant for everyone and also a Playtech creation. The theme comes from the Charles Dickens novella called A Christmas Carol. The story tells you about Ebenezer Scrooge, a bitter man that doesn’t believe in Christmas. By the end of the story, Scrooge will be transformed into a kind man, with plenty of help from the Ghosts of the Past, Present and Future Christmas. It’s a classic Christmas story, which was used by a couple of other slots as inspiration.

A game that looks like a great choice during the holiday season, it offers 5 reels and as many as 20 bet lines. A bonus game with three different levels, free spins, multipliers, scatters and wilds, these are all the features that Ghosts of Christmas gives you, plus a payout of $500,000.

Features of Ghosts Of Christmas

Wild symbols are used in the game, along with bonus icons which bring you bonus games, scatter symbols, free games and multipliers.

Scrooge himself is the image of the symbol with wild abilities. Shown as an old man that’s smiling at a gold coin, this symbol will be the slot’s most rewarding feature. It substitutes for any other symbol, a power that all wilds have and which has made countless players happy in the past. It will not substitute for a scatter or bonus icon. Wilds are also capable of creating a combo directly, only with symbols of this type, if they land in the right positions on the same line. Payouts of up to 10,000x are offered in this case.

The scatter symbol, the one with Scrooge’s dead partner, Marley, is also present and quite profitable if you get enough of them to appear. The top payouts obtained with Marley’s help go as high as 500 times the triggering bet, but you need five symbols to get that high. The prize is superior to the one offered through scatters in other slots, which rarely go over the 200x line.

Marley’s Free Games

As a scatter symbol, Marley can appear anywhere in the game. The free spins require that you get a minimum of three Marleys scattered on the reels. You choose one of those Marley symbols, and you find out how many free spins you got.


The wins you get along the way will be tripled with the multiplier of 3x that is applied during this feature. Getting another 3+ Marley symbols will give you an additional 10 free spins.

Bonus Game

The bonus game will give you a different experience, where the three Ghosts of Christmas pay you a visit. You need at least 3 Bonus symbols on an active line, forming a combo.


You get one of the three possible bonus levels, each one with its own ghost. Christmas Past gives you a classroom, Present has a house decorated for Christmas, while Future has a graveyard. Depending on the number of triggering symbols, you get between 3 and 5 picks in the bonus feature.

Betting options and jackpots

The maximum bet is not the kind of investment you would normally want to make, but high rollers will appreciate the option of using up to $1,000 per spin. A wager is composed out of 20 coins for just as many lines, with their denominations ranging from $0.01 to $50. It’s a game that everyone can afford to play.

Since you can get 10,000 coins from this slot, the top reward is worth up to $500,000 to you.

Design and symbols

The action in Ghosts of Christmas takes place in Scrooge’s house. You see the old miserable man on the left side, sitting in his night gown on a big armchair. A locked chest is on the other side of the game area. As for the reels, they have on them characters and objects, drawn in a rather weird style. Everything is done in 3D, but they’re not very realistic looking, so despite this being a fairly modern title it doesn’t look like a great choice.


Symbols: Ebenezer Scrooge (10,000 coins, wild), Marley (500x the bet, scatter), Wall Clock (bonus), Ghost of Past (500 coins), Ghost of Present (400 coins), Ghost of Future (200 coins), Tiny Tim and Bob (150 coins), Bird (125 coins), Ace (100 coins), King (75 coins) & Queen (50 coins).

Is It Worth Playing?

It’s not your usual Christmas themed slot machine, but it offers you more than enough in the features section, plus I’m sure that plenty of people love the Charles Dickens story that was used as inspiration.

Ghosts Of Christmas can be found at any Playtech casino, where you get a chance to play it for real money or in free mode.
