Iconic software developer Betsoft brings to life A Christmas Carol non-progressive 3D slots. If you forgot the story let me refresh your memory. The slot game is loosely based on Ebenezer Scrooge the main character of Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella: A Christmas Carol. In it Scrooge is depicted as a heartless miser who loathes Christmas.
Betsoft’s Christmas Carol comes with 25 paylines and 5 reels. The game offers a maximum jackpot win of 513,000 coins. One can say there’s something in it for high-value players as well. I’m not going to go all harpy on the game’s animations suffice it to say it’s off the charts. The slots features a myriad of in game bonus rounds starting with Past Winning Spins, Present Wild and Future Winnings Spins. I haven’t even played the game yet and I’m excited already! The house edge is 4%.
The game starts of with Ebenezer Scrooge holding a candle while he’s in bed. Against the backdrop of the reels you’ll see snow falling outside Scrooge’s window. At the lowest coin denomination: bet level 1 and a coin value of $0.01 it will cost you $0.50 per spin or 25 coins. This might be a bit steep even for low rollers. The maximum bet per spin is $125.
1. When you trigger 3 or more of the Christmas Past symbols the Past Spins bonus round is triggered. The more past Spins icons you trigger the more free spins you’ll receive:
- 3 Past icons award 3 spins
- 4 Past icons award 6 spins and
- 5 award 12 free spins
For the during of this feature additional Past and Future spins can be collected.
2. Christmas Future Spins: The Future Spins bonus round is triggered when you hit 3 or more Christmas Future symbols. Free spins are awarded as follow:
- 3 Future icons award 3 spins
- 4 Future icons award 6 spins and
- 5 icons 12 free spins
3. Christmas Present is an interesting symbol because it turns all the Ghost icons across the reels into wilds.
4. Turkey Wild: To complete a winning combination it substitutes all the other symbols on the reels except the Ghost Feature symbol.
If you want to double your wins you can click or press the the ‘Heads’ or ‘Tails’ button. The head of Ebenezer Scrooge appears on a gold coin. All wins are doubled instantly. But, if you loose all wins are forfeited.
My initial impression is that the Bestoft games are giving the NetEnt games a run for their money-graphically wise obviously. But, I find the Betsoft games to be slightly tighter especially during the base games. A Christmas Carol is no exception to this rule.The 3D slots is awash with some of the best visual animations I’ve come across. For this reason alone it’s worth to give the game a bash.
