How to play Christmas Carol Megaways Slot
You can play the game for between 0.20 to 100 coins, using the arrow buttons to adjust your bet.
The game is played on a six-reel grid with varying numbers of symbols running vertically down each reel. An extra four-symbol row runs horizontally along the top.
As you spin, between two and seven symbols will land on each reel.
How to win Christmas Carol Megaways Slot
You need to land three or more matching symbols to earn a payout. When this happens, the winning symbols will tumble down, making room for new symbols and potentially more wins.
Scrooge is the wild and will substitute for all other symbols, apart from the scatter, to hopefully create more winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is Scrooge’s pocket watch and will activate the free spins feature if you land four or more.
Special Features and Bonuses
There are a couple of bonus features to add interest and potentially increase your payouts significantly.
Triggered by landing four or more scatter symbols, you do not immediately get the free spins. You first need to choose the number of spins and level of volatility from the following:
15 free spins with a 1x multiplier
10 free spins with a 5x multiplier
5 free spins with a 10x multiplier
You can also choose the random fourth option, where you could get any combination of the above. This means you could potentially get 15 free spins with a 10x multiplier but could get five free spins with a 1x multiplier.
Engaging this feature increases your bet by 25% but doesn’t change the value of the symbols as you might expect. Instead, more scatters are added to the reels, increasing your chances of triggering free spins.
Players in certain jurisdictions may also be offered a ‘Bonus Buy’ option. Instead of waiting to trigger the free spins, you can cut to the chase by paying for ‘free’ spins and gain access to the progressive multiplier described above.
Design & Theme
Set in Ebenezer Scrooge’s mansion, the background shows stacks of books, purple velvet curtains and a rather grand staircase. The reels are trimmed with snow and candles and are lit up with a ghostly glow. All your favourite characters from Dicken’s tale pop up as symbols, from Tiny Tim to the Ghosts of Past, Present, and Future. The graphics are rendered in a vintage animated style, evoking the novel well. There’s generically festive music playing in the background.
As it’s a reskin, the gameplay is familiar but the theme works well for the festive period. The sheer number of ways to win provide regular if small payouts.
Plus, it may be themed around Scrooge, but there are some generous bonuses to be had here. A max win of 20,000 times your bet is always going to be appealing and if you don’t want to wait for the free spins round to be triggered, you can buy free spins to hurry it along.
While there’s nothing groundbreaking about Christmas Carol Megaways it is as well-made slot suitable for a variety of players.
