Theme and Graphics
New to Pragmatic, as the name suggests, is a Christmas-themed slot. The game is set in London, with a fairytale backdrop as snowflakes fall gracefully onto a cobbled street lit by a flickering street lamp. The buildings visible on either side of the screen are already covered in snow, hinting that it’s been snowing for some time. It’s time for the three Christmas ghosts to enter Scrooge’s bedroom and make him realise what Christmas is all about. Despite the superb graphics, the slot doesn’t lag at all and opens very quickly. You’ll only need a browser and a stable network connection to get started. If you’re looking for an interesting and beautiful game with medium volatility, make sure to check out Christmas Carol Megaways. This slot will allow you to celebrate Christmas at any time of the year, and at the same time win big.
Gameplay and Paylines
The high-paying icons you’ll encounter on the reels of this game are a ghost, two men, a girl and a boy. They all have their own value; payouts also depend, of course, on the number of identical icons in a line. Combinations involving symbols from this group can win you winnings of between 20 and 5,000 coins when played at the max bet. The low paying symbols are the standard A, K, Q, J and 10. Lines consisting of these icons have a payout of between 10 and 150 coins at the maximum bet. Before proceeding directly to the gameplay, you’ll need to select your stake by using the control panel at the bottom of the screen. In Christmas Carol Megaways you will be able to bet between 0.10 and 100 coins on each of your spins.
Christmas Carol Megaways has over 200,000 active paylines which means there’s a massive chance of winning combinations on every spin. You have to catch at least 3 symbols on one of the lines to get your payout.
Pay special attention to the ghost – it’s the best symbol in this game. For five of these icons you can get a win of 5000 coins.
RTP : 96.58%
Christmas Carol Megaways is not only an interesting basic game, but also has various extra features.
• Wild, represented by an elderly man, replaces all other symbols except for the Scatter. He appears on all reels except the first and last and makes combinations that much easier.
• Scatter’s are the hourglasses. If you manage to catch at least 4 of them on the screen, you activate the free spins feature.
• Drop function. This feature clears the grid by removing all winning combinations after the player has received his winnings. The remaining symbols slide to the bottom of the screen and empty positions are filled with new symbols coming from above. The symbols added to the grid are the same size as those that disappeared. The drop function continues until the winning combinations disappear as a result of the drop on the screen. All winnings are awarded to the player after the last hit has been played.
Free Spins. Start this round by getting at least 4 Scatter symbols on the reels. The Free Spins feature offers a winnings multiplier that increases by 1x with each drop. So, depending on the number of Scatter symbols that activate the round, the game gives you the option to choose the number of free spins and the initial multiplier:
• 4 Scatter symbols give you 15, 10 or 5 free spins with an initial multiplier of 1x, 5x or 10x respectively;
• 5 Scatter symbols give 19, 14 or 9 free spins with an initial multiplier of 1x, 5 or 10 respectively;
• 6 Scatter’s give 23, 18 or 13 free spins with an initial multiplier of 1x, 5x or 10x respectively.
If you manage to display 3 more Scatter symbols during the free spins feature, the game will activate 5 new free spins. There is no limit to the number of times you can add new free spins. It’s an unforgettable Christmas!
• Ante betting option. You can increase your chances of getting the free spins feature by using the Ante Bet option on the left side of the screen. This gives you the chance to double your chances of winning the free games round by adding more scatter symbols to the reels. This will happen if you select a bet multiplier of 25x. The maximum payout this video slot has to offer is 20,000 times your bet, so if you gain this multiplier in the free spins round, the feature is immediately disabled. The winnings are awarded and the remaining free spins are lost.
• Buy Feature. In the spirit of Christmas, the game offers you another betting option that is sure to change your life. The Buy Free Spins option allows you to buy 100 times your current bet. Keep in mind that you cannot use this option when the 25x ante option is active.
