When Charles Dickens wrote ‘A Christmas Carol’, surely he knew the story would eventually be turned into an online casino game, right? Perhaps that’s a bit of a wild assumption but looking at PlayTech’s slot game Ghosts of Christmas you have to admit the subject makes for a very entertaining gaming experience. And with as many bonuses as there are ghosts, the Christmas spirit has never seemed more jolly.


Launch the game and you are immediately transported into the world of Ebenezer Scrooge counting his money on Christmas Eve when the ghosts of Marley appears, announcing that before the night is over he will be visited by three more ghosts. The story is told in a short animated movie, which looks so clever it will remind you of Pixar films. This theme continues throughout the game as the character of Scrooge sits next to the reels as they spin and he cheers when you win.

Despite the advanced graphics of this slot game, the underlying mechanics are surprisingly simple. The reels feature the three classic symbols A, K and Q alongside themed symbols such as a painting and roasted duck. The ghosts of past, present and future are of course the highest paying symbols. Note for past and present you only need to line up 2 symbols to win which you rarely see in other slot games.

As you would expect Scrooge is the Wild symbol and substitutes for all others except the Scatter and Bonus symbols. Similar to some of the ghosts, you only need two Scrooges on an active pay-line to win some extra coins on top of any other wins the Wild symbol contributes to. A ghostlike Marley is the Scatter and 3 symbols anywhere on the reels activate the free spins feature with a 3x multiplier. The number of free games you receive depends on which Marley symbol you pick as each hides a different amount of free spins. If you get 3 or more Marley’s during the free spins, you win 10 more free games, meaning you can keep on playing for free!

The clock features as the Bonus symbol and 3 or more on an active pay-line will trigger the bonus game. Each ghost has its own bonus round and which one you get is determined entirely at random. The ghost of Christmas past asks you to choose 3 desks from a class room that reveal cash prizes. If you trigger the Christmas present bonus round, you get to pick presents from underneath the tree and the ghost of Christmas future takes you to a cemetery where you need to select gravestones to collect your winnings.

With a minimum bet of just £0.20 it truly is an online casino game for any budget and the many bonuses and great design make it one of the most entertaining festive slots out there.
