This game lets you take a peek into the miserable life of Ebenezer Scrooge. As you spin those reels and make your fortune, a very life-like Scrooge sniggers and rolls his eyes in the background, evidently not aware that he is no longer the protagonist when you’re around. Instead of focusing their power on the miser, the Ghosts are there to serve you. Whenever you land on three or more of Christmas Past or Christmas Future, they burst out of the screen to grant you your free spins. The animations of the game during this feature are phenomenal and perfectly create a sense of Christmas magic that has us in awe. So as to stay true to the theme of Christmas, and the title of the game, Christmas Carols hum in the background as you play. The volume is turned up every time you win an additional feature and a wreath appears when you get a big win. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, and this game has got us in high spirits!

Payouts and Wagering Limits
People love to be generous at Christmas, and this game is no exception. The panel at the bottom of the screen allows you to change the coin value and the bets per line to allow you to make the changes you need. You can choose to bet a maximum of 5 coins per line, and the coin value can be adjusted from $0.02 per coin up to $0.50 per coin. So at the minimum bet, a total of $0.25 can be set, or you can choose to play at the maximum bet of $125.00 per spin. This game includes 10 symbols, and the few amount present means that it’s even easier to activate the special symbols that will trigger the bonus features. The Wild symbol, the chicken roast on a golden platter, will give you the best payouts of a 2,400 coin reward when you land on five of this kind. Scrooge, surprisingly, will get you your second highest payout, scoring you a total of 1,000 coins. Next is the golden bell with 800 coins, the golden coins offer 500 coins and the golden presents 400. Lastly, the bank will grant you 200 coins. The other standard symbols reward 150 to 50 coins when landing you on 5 of a kind. The bet levels increase the coin value, turning a win of 2,400 coins into 12,00 coins when you play at the maximum bet.
A Christmas Carol
Ebenezer Scrooge has nothing on us and no way will he ruin our Christmas cheer.

This Christmas take a page out of Scrooge’s book and do what he couldn’t - play fairly and optimistically. After all, if there’s anything that we can read into here it’s that you’re bound to win when you’re prepared to take the gamble. So wipe that cynical look off your face and embrace the Christmas spirit (or Spirits, in this case). You never know what you can win just for being nice.
