Overview Christmas Carol Megaways slot
Christmas Carol Megaways is the latest slot to be released from the gaming team at Pragmatic Play and has taken its inspiration from the famous Ebenezer Scrooge, who happens to be the main character in the novel and film “A Christmas Carol.” This outstanding slot is packed full of features and there is a massive 200,704 ways you can win, you will be visited by three Christmas Ghosts and there are tumbles, free spins, and multipliers all for you to take advantage of. So, if you are up for the challenge and really do want to see Christmas as you never have before read on.
Theme & Design
As stated above The Christmas Carol Megaways slot is based on the famous novel by Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol” that has also been made into a film and stage production. The slot is based in the 19th century in a snowy street in London. The graphics have been created using the highest quality graphics that are sharp and crisp. The big surprise is the soundtrack which is rather cheery particularly if you consider how grumpy the lead character Scrooge is.
Game Play & Statistics
This slot uses the Megaways mechanic from Big Time Gaming and offers players 6-reels and the number of symbols on these reels changes randomly on every spin so there is not an actual number available at any one time. The outer reels your 1st and 6th reels can hold up to 7 symbols and the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels have the capacity to hold up to 8 symbols. If you land all six reels with the maximum number of symbols this is where you will benefit from 200,704 Megaways.
The first thing that you will need to decide on is the amount that you are comfortable to bet with and this starts from just 20p per spin up to a maximum of £100 per spin and it is easy to change your bet. There is also an auto play element where you can choose up to 1,000 spins, this means that you can simply sit back and watch the game unfold. There are also both a Turbo and a Quick Spin mode on hand and you can set win and loss limits if you want to.
The return to player in offer in a Christmas Carol Megaways sits at 96.5% which is above average, and the variance has been classified by Pragmatic Play as a 5/5 in other words extremely high, therefore prepare yourself for small and occasional wins but if you do land it big you really could receive the maximum win of 20,000x your total stake on just one spin.
In keeping with all slots from this developer the slot has been created using HTML5 technology, and the slot can be played using all devices. Thanks to the quality of the animations and graphics nothing gets lost even on a small screen of a mobile device.
When it comes to the symbols you can expect to see the usual low value royal cards 10 through to Ace with the higher value symbols being represented by Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit as well as 3 Ghosts (the past, the present and the future.) The most rewarding of the symbols is the Ghost of the Future as landing 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, in a combination with reward you with 1, 2, 10, 25, of 50x your total stake.
The wild is played by the old and mean Ebenezer Scrooge, he can appear on your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, reels but only on the top row and he can also substitute for all the symbols apart from the pocket watch, which is the games scatter, to create winning combinations.
When it comes to the features the Christmas Carol Megaways hosts a myriad of exciting ones, with the most exciting game function in my opinion being the limitless multipliers and variable free spins. Keep reading to find out more.
As noted above the game’s wild is Ebenezer and this is a standard wild with substitution powers. Ebenezer was the perfect choice for the wild particularly as he has such a dramatic personality change during the story. You should note though that the wilds can only appear on the top row of your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th reels and can substitute for everything apart from the pocket watch scatter.
Next come the free spins and they come in several forms. The scatter feature is activated by landing four of the pocket watch symbols on your reels at any one time. Once you have activated the feature you will need to make a choice from the four free spins options. The first options are 15x free spins that start with a 1x win multiplier. Next choice would be 10x free spins with 5x multiplier or 5x free spins with a 5x multiplier. Then there is the final choice which is choosing the mystery spins. This last option provides the number of free spins and the multiplier at random. It is brilliant if you get 10x free spins with a 5x starting multiplier however at the other end of the scale it could be 5x free spins with a 1x multiplier which in the grand scheme of things is pretty rubbish!
The multipliers continue to grow right up until you land a win, and the best thing is that these are limitless, so they continue increasing the whole time your round is in play. The scatters continue to appear at random all through the free spins but again they only land on the top row, if at any time you land three you will be awarded with five more free spins. This entire process is limitless and can continue all the time you land sets of watches.
I think the free spins are one of best features and can be worth your while when you unlock a cascading win or additional free spins. It is also the place where you can land the biggest win as landing six “Ghost of Christmas Future” symbols will unlock a chain of multipliers and you will the be in line to land the big win.
The Christmas Carol Megaways slot is a great game that I really enjoyed playing. There is a variety of features and many ways to rack up some worthwhile win results. Personally, I would rate this as a solid 8.75/10 and have no hesitation to recommend it to other players.
