The Ghosts of Christmas online slots game is based on A Christmas Carol, a classic novel by Charles Dickens about an old miserly man named Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by three ghosts. An introduction to the game tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas past, present and future. The graphics are 3D and display cartoon-like characters and paraphernalia from the classic tale. The symbols include Ebenezer Scrooge, the ghost of Marley, Tiny Tim, the three ghosts, small clocks and more.
Playing Ghosts of Christmas Online Slots
Ghosts of Christmas was developed by Playtech and is played on a five reels setup at bet365 NZ. There are twenty different pay lines that can be bet on. If two or more winning combinations occur on one active pay line then the one with the highest valued win will pay out. If winning combinations land on multiple active pay lines they will all pay out.
All winning pay lines run from the furthest left reel apart from the combinations of Marley’s ghost scatter symbols. A max bet and an auto spin feature is available to either automatically bet the maximum amount on all the pay lines and to set a predetermined amount of spins to spin continuously.
Ghosts of Christmas Wild Symbols
The symbols displaying Ebenezer Scrooge are the symbols that act as the Ghost of Christmas wilds. The wild symbols can help create winning combinations as it acts a replacement for any of the other paying symbols except the scatters and bonus symbols. If two or more of the wild symbols land on an active pay line they pay out an amount according to the pay table. If this happens alongside a winning combination produced from the wild then the combination with the highest winning amount is paid out.
Scatter Symbols and Free Spins Bonus
Marley’s ghost represents the Ghosts of Christmas scatter symbols and landing three, four or five consecutively on any pay line on the reels will activate the free spins bonus round. Up to fifteen free spins are awarded by selecting one of the symbols. All wins produced from a free spin are tripled and an additional set of free spins can be re-triggered if another three, four or five scatters land on the reels. There is no limit to the number of free spins that can be re-triggered. Two or more scatter symbols landing in any position on the reels will pay out an amount multiplied by the total bet. Marley’s ghost pays out and activates the free spins regardless of whether they run from the left or the right side.
Ghosts of Christmas Bonus Game
When three or more of the bonus symbols land on an active pay line the online slots bonus game is triggered. These symbols display small clocks.

The themed games include the Ghosts of Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas future. Each theme has a different variety of objects that must be chosen but the aim and rules are the same. Each of the objects holds a mystery cash reward of varying amounts.
