A Christmas Carol Slots

A-Christmas-CarolA Christmas Carol is one of the Betsoft slot machines and at the same time it is a game themed around a famous Charles Dickens novella, which has the same name. The story tells the reader about an old man called Ebenezer Scrooge, and how the visits of three ghosts of Christmas transformed him and made him into a kinder man. It’s especially popular whenever the winter holidays are near, and there are a lot of movies that were made based on it already.

25 bet lines are part of the game, presented to you on the usual 5 reels. There are the various ghosts that bring with them free spins or wilds, there are scatter symbols and on top of that there are also payouts of up to $12,000.

Features of A Christmas Carol

The features in this game rely on two types of options, the wilds and the free spins. The three Christmas ghosts make appearances as well when they’re triggered, bringing you free spins or wilds to take advantage of.

The Stuffed Bird is the wild of the game, which is capable at any time to substitute for another symbol, the requirement being for it to be on the same active line as the rest of the icons needed for the winning combo. A combination made only out of wilds offers its own prizes obviously, in this case up to 12,000 coins being won with its help. Wild symbols are capable of replacing any other wild that has no feature abilities.


Three types of scatter symbols exist in the game, each one representing one of the Ghosts of Christmas.

Past Winning Spins

The Yellow Ghost is the trigger in this case, being needed in at least three positions anywhere on the reels. This will bring you the Past Spins, all of them with guaranteed wins in them. You get three spins from three scatters, six spins from four and twelve spins from five such symbols.


Present Wilds

This is what the Ghost of Christmas Present will bring you. Once again, the requirement is for 3+ Green Ghost scatters to be present on the reels. When this happens, all the symbols with ghosts on them that are present on the reels will be transformed into regular wild icons, hopefully bringing you more wins for that round.


Future Winning Spins

Should you land at least 3 Ghosts of Christmas Future, which are the blue ones, you will get the Future Winning Spins to start up. Just like with the Past Spins, you can win from 3 to 12 such rounds, as long as you have between three and five symbols scattered on the reels.


Betting options and jackpots

The coins you use in the game start at $0.02 and can go up to $1. You can select between 1 and 5 such coins for each active bet line, which allows the total bet to go up to $125 when everything is maxed out.

As for the rewards, the wild symbol offers the best one, with a combo of five such symbols bringing up to 12,000 coins (2,400x), or $12,000.

Design and symbols

This is a recent release from BetSoft, so you will get a very good design from it, with Ebenezer Scrooge being shown on the left side of the screen, moving around and pointing his candle in different directions. The reels are on the right, surrounded by golden borders and having quite a few symbols on them that are made out of the same material. It’s a modern looking game, released just in time for the winter holidays.


Symbols: Stuffed Bird (wild, 2,400x), Christmas Past (scatter), Christmas Present (scatter), Christmas Future (scatter), Ebenezer Scrooge (1,000x), Golden Bell (800x), Gold Coins (500x), Gifts (400x), Scrooge’s Bank Sign (200x), Ace (150x), King (100x), Queen (80x), Jack (75x) and 10 (50x).

Is It Worth Playing?

The quality is certainly there, the features are plentiful and I have no doubt that you will have a great experience if you give it a chance. The prizes are the only ones that I’m not happy about, the top payout being at only 2,400x.

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens

Inspiration for this slot machine came from the novel called “A Christmas Carol”, which was written by Charles Dickens and published for the first time in 1843, right before of Christmas that year. It was recognized immediately as a great story by its readers and it has remained very popular to this day. Many movies, books, animation series and even opera or theater works were done based on it.

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