Free Spins

The 5 reel online slot A Christmas Carol has 25 fixed paylines and comes with two types of free spins:

  1. Past Spins is a round that can involve 3 to 12 free spins. The bonus game is activated after three to five Scatter symbols Christmas Past occur on the game screen. Each spin in this round generates a guaranteed win. There is a possibility that during this bonus round, you will win free spins again
  2. Future Spins — a round that consists of 3, 6 or 12 free spins. To start it, you need to have 3, 4 or 5 Scatter symbols for Christmas Future on the reels. Each free spin generates a guaranteed winning combination on the screen. During the round, you have the chance to run the Future Spins bonus once again and also to trigger Past Spins

Symbols and Multipliers

Online slot A Christmas Carol has 10 ordinary symbols that can create winning combinations. Scrooge, a bell, a stack of coins, Christmas gifts and Scrooge´s Bank sign are themed and there are 5 silver playing card symbols. They can create winning combinations if 3, 4 or 5 appear along one of the active paylines, starting with the leftmost reel.

In addition to these symbols, this slot has 4 special images:

  • Wild -  is designed as a Christmas turkey and replaces other symbols in winning combinations, except Scatters and in its own combos, the Wild produces the biggest winnings
  • Christmas Past - is a Scatter that triggers the Past Spins round where you get 3, 6 or 12 free spins
  • Christmas Future - is a Scatter that activates the round of 3 to 12 Future Spins
  • Christmas Present - is a Scatter that turns all the Ghost Scatter symbols into Wilds

Risk Game

A winning combination on the reels allows you to run a risk game where you have to guess the correct side of a coin. Clicking the Double Up button takes you to this round. If you manage to correctly guess (Heads or Tails), you will double your previous win and have two options:

  1. Continue the round by guessing the side of a coin
  2. Transfer the winnings to your balance and finish the game by clicking the Collect button

If you did not manage to guess correctly, your winnings are lost and the risk game ends.

How to Play A Christmas Carol

To begin playing on the slot, you need to get familiar with the functions of the main buttons on the control panel:

  • "-" and "+" in Choose Coin - determine the nominal value of one credit

After setting all the necessary parameters to start auto spins click the OK button. Cancel is for returning to the normal game
  • Double Up - a button that appears on the screen after a winning spin. Clicking it starts a risk game where you are given a chance to increase your winnings. Note that the Double Up button is not available during auto spins
