Christmas Carol Megaways is one of my favourite Christmas slots of 2021. Pragmatic Play has produced a new and unique version of the Scrooge tale. Not only that, but this slot has 6 reels and 200,704 ways to win through the Megaways mechanic. Additionally, there are free spins, multipliers and the chance to double your wins through an exciting gamble feature.
Christmas Carol Megaways is one of our many new mobile slots. When you take the time to review this game, you’ll see that the developer have created it using HTML5 technology so that you can play this game wherever you are. The game also offers up to 1000 auto-spins, so you can let this game play by itself if you need to go open your presents.
Christmas Carol Megaways has 6 reels and uses the Megaways reels to provide you with thousands of winning ways. These winning ways will change with each spin. Additionally, the game has both Turbo and Quick modes available for faster spinning. Finally, this slot has an RTP of 96.47%, which is one of the higher RTPs we offer in our slot game collection.
With the Megaways reel in place, there are no fixed paylines. This means that whatever you bet on the game, this is spread across all paylines. But, with the Megaways mechanic, you won’t know how many this is until the spins end. The game has a very high volatility level too, which means you will get some pretty big wins down the line.
Bet Lines and Betting
Impressively, Christmas Carol Megaways features a whopping 200,704 ways to win through the Megaways mechanic. However, the number of win ways per spin depends on how many symbols land on the reels after that spin. You can make a pretty wide-ranging set of bets from just 20p through to an impressive £100. So, Christmas Carol Megaways is great for players of all budgets.
Graphics and sound
This slot really has a stunning design from the in-game features such as free spins, to the actual visuals and symbols. The reels are set on a snowy London backdrop. On the reels themselves, there are a number of images and characters from this famous tale. Accompanying all of this is a jolly soundtrack, a little at odds with the grumpy nature of the main character.
Christmas Carol Megaways Game Play
To play this slot, all you need to do is get spinning. You will need to land at least three matching symbols on a payline in order to get some wins. However, Scrooge is the wild symbol, and he’ll help you to get more wins by replacing other symbols. There are also scatter symbols waiting to land and trigger the bonus features.
There are a number of different bonus features available in Christmas Carol Megaways.
The first of these is the Tumble feature. Whenever you get a win, this feature activates. All the matching symbols are then taken off the reels, which means that new symbols tumble into their spot with the potential of giving you more winning combinations. These keep happening until no more wins occur.
The only other bonus that is not free spins is the wild. This can be used to make more wins too. That is because it can take the place of all other symbols on the reels, with the exception of the scatter. When it does, it helps to make those important winning combinations so that you can claim even more wins.
Christmas Carol Megaways Free Spins
To get the free spins, all you need to do is land at least four pocket watch scatters. There are then three types of free spins offers available, each coming with a different number of spins and value multipliers. The greater the number of scatters used to trigger this feature, the more free spins you will start off with for each of the different options.
Christmas Carol Megaways verdict
Christmas Carol Megaways offers nothing really new in the way of gameplay, nor in the theme — Scrooge is a common theme during the festive season. That being said, the Megaways reel really elevates things, and there are some big wins to be claimed, especially during the free spins. With a 20,000x your bet maximum win, this is Scrooge at his generous best.
