If you’re looking for something fun to play to tide you over through the Christmas period then you should definitely check out the Ghost of Christmas slot game. This superb slot is super spooky and will send chills down your spine from just a few games.
Based on the classic tale of Scrooge, players are sat down within Scrooges dimly lit bedroom and there’s an animated Scrooge who twitches nervously as he awaits the visit of another spirit. A great feature of this game is that there’s tons of references to the original story in the symbols from images of Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim as well as Jacob Marley and a cooked goose.
There’s also several ghost from the Christmas story that we all know so well so you’ll get to enjoy the adorable cuteness of the Ghost of Christmas Past, laugh along with the jolly Ghost of Christmas Present and cower in terror from the ominous Ghost of Christmas Future.
The actual game itself is pretty straight forward to get to grips with, it’s a five reel 20 line job and there’s a wealth of fun features to play around with.
For starters there’s Wilds which are represented by Scrooge himself, these handy squares will substitute for all the other symbols in your combination apart from the Marley Scatter and Ghost of Christmas Bonus symbols. So you can get a wider range of winning combos from the reels.
Next in their list of fun features is the Free Spin round, this bonus can be unlocked by landing three or more of the Marley Scatter symbols on the reels.
Once you do this the reels will freeze and you’ll have to pick between the various Marley squares on the reels and underneath each one is a random amount of free spins. The number of spin that can you can get will always range anywhere from as low as 3 or as high as 10, whichever one of these you get is all down to luck so try and choose wisely when this round starts.
Plus as an extra bonus all your wins in this round are tripled, so you could land quite a large haul of cash from one free spin round alone.
Finally in their roster of bonuses is the Ghosts of Christmas Bonus round, this feature can be triggered by landing three or more of the clock bonus symbols on the reels. Once you manage this the round will launch and you’ll be either pulled into the past, present or future.
Only one era can be visited at a time and it’s essentially a ‘Pick and Win’ round as you’re shown objects relating to either Scrooges childhood, his present or his future.
The items you’ll get to choose from can be either school desks if it’s the past, presents if it’s Scrooge’s present timeline or gravestones if it’s his future. Once you’re in a time period you just have to select one of these items shown onscreen to uncover a bonus win prize that will be immediately credited to your account.
A great feature of this game is that there’s a fairly large wagering range as you can bet between 1p and £50 per round so it caters to a wide range of budgets. Plus you can also choose to spin the spooky reels manually or use the ‘Auto Play’ to run it automatically until you trigger a bonus.
Overall this slot is fantastic, its design is great and the bonus rounds will keep you entertained for hours on end.
