Ghosts of Christmas is an online slot game. It features a stunningly realised theme based around the well known classic story A Christmas Carol. Scrooge, the protagonist of the story, hates Christmas, and hates everyone who enjoys Christmas. However, he is visited by three ghosts, the ghost of Christmas past, the Ghost of Christmas present, and the Ghost of Christmas future.
Each visit opens Scrooge’s eyes to the reality of the situation, helping him appreciate his life, and, in doing so, helping him learn to love Christmas. The Ghosts of Christmas slot game captures this story remarkably well, using fully animated 3D characters, enchanting music, and implementing a unique play system that tells the story.
The game itself uses a fairly standard five reel, twenty play line system, and allows players to adjust betting lines and the betting amount. It is the bonus mini-games, however, that take this game into a league all of its own. Ghosts of Christmas is available to play on desktop, mobile phone and tablet. Note that the game will require a modern smart phone with a good amount of system resources.
Standard Play Symbols And Rules
The design of the game features a 3D Scrooge who sits to the left of the play area, animating and moving in response to the events of the game. He is accompanied by a grandfather clock, above his head, which also plays an important part in the system.
The standard play symbols of the game are, as already said, lovingly created to reflect aspects of the story. The most valuable symbol in the game are the three visiting ghosts, past, present and future, an each will pay a good amount if matched with themselves a minimum of three times, and maximum of five times. The least valuable symbols are the traditional queen, king and ace of playing cards. To really bring in the cash, however, and to start the story in motion, the player must look out for the bonus symbols.
Tell The Story
The first bonus symbol in the Ghosts of Christmas game is Scrooge himself, holding a golden coin. He is the wild symbol, and will match with all other symbols to create winning sequences. He is also a highly valuable symbol if matching with himself in sequences. The second bonus symbol is the scatter symbol, represented by a ghost named Marley.
If matching three, four, or five times he will grant free spins, up to fifteen with an added multiplier of three at most online NZ casino sites. It is the bonus symbol, however, where the game gets interesting. The bonus symbol is represented by a clock, and if matching with itself three times will kick the story into motion. The player will see the clock above the animated Scrooge’s head begin to spin and glow, after which the first mini-game will be set into motion. A second screen will open, and Scrooge will be visited by a ghost. The first is, of course, the ghost of Christmas present, and he will announce himself in an animated appearance. The player may then select prizes, after which the story will continue when next the bonus symbols are matched.
