Based on the famous book by Charles Dickens, 'A Christmas Carol', Ghosts of Christmas videos slots is another game created by game developers, Playtech. The slots game's theme uses the plot in the book and the characters represent the various symbols on the reels. This particular online slot game has five reels and 20 paylines. The game is largely successful because of the great use of video graphics and audio in the backdrop of the game.
The game reminisces several characters from 'A Christmas Carol', with the faces of these characters being the symbols. Some of the characters which are used include Scrooge, Tiny Tim and Marley. There are three bonus features in this game, which is a boost for players who wish to try their luck. These bonus features give the player the chance to win free credits without having to make a wager. The game has a 10,000 coin jackpot if the player lands five Scrooge symbols across all five reels. The game comes in both, paid and free versions.
As mentioned before, the game works on the same lines of a regular slot machine. A player will have to bet on the 20 paylines using the credit he/she has. The player can put one coin on a single payline or 20 coins on every payline. Paylines are random patterned lines that run across the 5 reels passing through each one only once. If the player matches three or more symbols on those paylines during a spin, the game will award the player based on the symbols matched and the amount wagered.
Scrooge represents the Wild Symbol in the game while the Ghost of Marley symbol represents the scatter symbol in the game. The wild symbol can substitute any other symbol, except the scatter symbol, to make a winning combination. When three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels, it activates the bonus game feature. The wild and scatter symbols occur randomly throughout the game.
There are three bonus games in the Ghosts of Christmas video slots game. The first game is the Ghost of Christmas Past where the player must choose from a set of gifts which reveal bonus coins that get added to the overall total.

Clicking one of these items gives the player various bonus coins or mulitpliers for the next round. The bonus round feature in the game is a great way for players to earn bonus credits without having to spend any currency.
