Ghosts of Christmas Slot Review

Take on the role of Scrooge but be careful not to be a stingy old man. Be generous or else the ghosts of Christmas will pay you a visit. Now that we talk about it, you may want to trigger them so they can come out and shower you will bonuses. Yeah, let’s be a Christmas villain!

On the left side of the screen, we see Scrooge sitting on his armchair, anxiously twitching his hands and legs while a clock located above him makes loud ticking noises. If you look to the right you’ll find the game’s dashboard. At the sides, you will see individual buttons corresponding to the paylines. The controls can be found at the bottom.

The slot follows the classic reel spinning model. Hit spin and see the reels roll, each one stopping immediately after the one before it. The high-paying symbols in the game will become animated if they participate in a winning combination. Other similar games include NetEnt’s Secrets of Christmas and Push Gaming’s Fat Santa.

Everybody loves Christmas and so should you. Hop on your favorite online casino and give it a go. This is how the slot works.

How to Play Ghosts of Christmas

The game features 3 lines and 5 reels and 20 non-fixed paylines. The controls, from left to right, are the info section, payline and bet per line selections, last win and total bet indicators, max bet option, autoplay function, and finally, the spin button. All of them light up if you hover the cursor over them.

Due to the non-fixed paylines, the slot’s bet limits can start as low as $0.01 (minimum 1p bet, 1 payline) and can go as high as $200 (maximum $10 bet, 20 paylines).

The game’s low 92.33% RTP isn’t something we found nice about the slot but it is partly counteracted by the regular wins thanks to its medium volatility.

That said, the game also offers a 10,000x line bet which can award a win up to $100,000.

The game is equipped with only 3 low-paying symbols which come in the form of card values Q, K, and A. Following are 5 high-paying symbols which consist of a turkey, a framed image, and then the past, present, and future ghosts.

The Ghosts of Christmas slot features 3 special symbols. These are:

  • Wild – Scrooge is the slot’s wild symbol. It can substitute all symbols except for the scatter and the bonus to form winning combinations.
  • Scatter – Marley is the slot’s scatter symbol. 3 or more will activate the free games feature.
  • Bonus – Represented by the symbol of a clock, 3 or more on an active payline will activate the Ghosts of Christmas bonus. 

Game Rules

 Ghosts of Christmas Features

This Playtech slot is equipped with a few bonus features which, despite the low RTP, can be very rewarding on their own.

Marley’s Free Games

The feature will activate whenever 3 or more scatter symbols appear simultaneously in any position of the reels. The player can be awarded up to 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier.

Before the free games start, the player will be asked to choose one of the scatter symbols. These can award either 5, 10, or 15 free spins

If 3 or more scatter symbols appear during the free games then the player is awarded an extra 10 free spins. The free spins can be triggered infinitely.

The 3x multiplier applies to all wins during the free games except for those of the Ghosts of Christmas bonus. 

Free spins
Ghosts of Christmas Bonus

The feature will be activated when the player lands on at least 3 consecutive bonus symbols (clock). 1 of 3 bonuses will be randomly triggered. Each bonus only differs from the others visual-wise as the rewards are the same. 

During the bonus, the player will pick a set number of items each one revealing a bet multiplier. The total win is calculated by a single multiplier consisting of the sum of all individual picks.

The number of bonus symbols that triggered the event also represents the number of items the player will pick during the bonus mini-game. 

The bonuses and the items the player will pick are:

  • Christmas Past – A classroom with desks.
  • Christmas Present – A living room with presents.
  • Christmas Future – A snowy terrain with a series of headstones. 

Finally, free games can’t be triggered during the bonus.
