Ghosts of Christmas
Ghosts of Christmas
If you’re the type of player that thinks “Bah! Humbug” to the holiday season, you’ll love having the opportunity to indulge in the more macabre side of Yule in Playtech’s Ghosts of Christmas slot. Featuring five reels, 20 paylines and two spook-tacular bonus features, Ghosts of Christmas is a fully 3D title that boasts its own animated intro and state-of-the-art graphics. Played out to an eerie soundtrack, the game clearly owes a lot to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with the main character being a miserly old hermit who has the festive cheer frightened into him by four ghosts.
As mentioned above, it’s abundantly clear that the team who designed Ghosts of Christmas have drawn on the characters of Ebenezer Scrooge and Jacob Marley for inspiration, with the intro depicting the former counting out his money before the latter and his ghostly sidekicks arrive to decorate the room. A haunted looking Scrooge features in the background during the base game; with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future all appearing on the reels alongside a plucked goose and other unique symbols. A spooky piece of background music also adds to the atmosphere, while players are transported to a series of Christmas visions in the main bonus feature.
There are two bonuses to be had in Ghosts of Christmas, the first a free spins feature and the second a pick-and-click mini-game. Dealing with them in order, Marley’s Free Games begin when three or more Marley scatter symbols appear on the reels, with players then having to choose one of their triggering symbols to uncover up to 15 free spins. These bonus games further benefit from a 3x prize multiplier, while landing three subsequent Marley symbols will award an additional 10 free spins. The second feature, meanwhile, is activated whenever three clock-face symbols appear on a valid payline starting from the left-most reel. This will transport players to one of three scenes – past, present or future – and they’ll have to pick from a number of items to unveil cash prizes.
Featuring clearly labelled buttons that control every aspect of the gameplay, Ghosts of Christmas is an incredibly user friendly slot to play. Plus and minus buttons allow players to adjust their line bet from £0.01-£5.00 and their number of active paylines from 1-20, making the game playable from anywhere between £0.01 and £100.00 in total. An autoplay button can also be used to launch up to 99 consecutive spins, while all pays are available under the info tab.
A haunting video slot experience that doesn’t scrooge on its payouts, Ghosts of Christmas is a beautifully designed game that’s perfect for both the holiday season and Halloween alike. Boasting a great array of bonus features, the slot has enough depth to keep even the most demanding of players occupied as they spin their way to spectral rewards.
