Online Slot Review: Christmas Carol Megaways

The classic festive tale by Charles Dickens has been around for well over a century and now, Pragmatic Play brings A Christmas Carol to your screen with Christmas Carol Megaways! You’ll be visited by three Christmas ghosts in an effort to win the maximum payout of 20,000x your stake, and the infamous Ebenezer Scrooge is actually here to help you this time around.

Thanks to the Megaways mechanic, you’ll get to enjoy up to 200,704 ways to win, and with tumbling reels, free spins and multipliers, and an exceptional RTP (return to player), players are in for a treat this festive season with one of the best online slots around!


Christmas Carol Megaways slot is a highly volatile game, rated 5 out of 5 by the developers. This means that wins are infrequent, but payouts are relatively large. While high volatility slots tend to be better suited to high rollers, the wide betting range of 20p to £100 makes this game appealing to players of all bankrolls. The RTP of the base game is 96.48% and increases to a generous 96.58% when the ‘Ante Bet’ feature is active.

Big Time Gaming introduced a fresh take on slots gaming by replacing fixed paylines with the Megaways mechanic. Christmas Carol Megaways take place over 6 reels, and the number of symbols on the reels change randomly with each spin. The outer reels (1 and 6) can feature up to 7 symbols each, while reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 feature between 2 and 8 symbols each. When all the reels feature the maximum number of symbols, there are 200,704 ways to win! The number of ways to win is featured in the top right corner of the screen and changes with every spin.

Players who enjoy fast-paced action can benefit from the Turbo mode and will be able to set loss and win limits to ensure safe and responsible gameplay. The betting options are conveniently placed next to the spin button in the bottom right corner of the game screen. You can also change the game settings, including battery saver, ambient sounds and game sounds, by selecting the menu button in the bottom left corner, next to the info tab where you can find the games playtable.

The game has been optimised for play on all compatible devices – including desktop and laptop computers, as well as tablets and mobile phones.


The Christmas Carol Megaways slot is set in the snowy streets of London in the 19th century. The graphics are a true spectacle and are of the highest quality, setting the standard for future slots. A fitting soundtrack and some fun sound effects add to the festive cheer.

On the ice-covered reels, symbols include low-paying 10, J, Q, K and Ace symbols, and the high-value symbols are represented by Bob Crachit and Tiny Tim, as well as the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future. Special symbols include the grumpy Scrooge who appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 as the wild (and can replace any symbol except for the scatter), as well as the pocket watch which represents the scatter – 4 to 6 of which will activate the free spins round.

Standout features

Christmas Carol Megaways online slot game screen.

Tumble feature

The tumble feature is active throughout the game and is present when you land winning combinations. When you win, the winning symbols will disappear from their position on the reels, and more symbols will tumble down from the top of the screen to take their place. This gives you more opportunities to land more than one winning combination with a single spin.

Free Spins

When 4 or more scatter symbols (represented by the golden pocket watch) appear anywhere on the reels, you’ll be awarded a choice of 3 free spins, each with a different initial multiplier. The more scatters on the reels, the more free spins you’ll get in each option:

  • 4 scatter symbols will give you a choice of 5, 10, or 15 free spins with the initial multiplier of 10x, 5x, or 1x, respectively.
  • 5 scatter symbols will give you a choice of 9, 14, or 19 free spins with the initial multiplier of 10x, 5x, and 1x, respectively.
  • 6 scatter symbols will give you a choice of 13, 18, or 23 free spins with the initial multiplier of 10x, 5x, and 1x, respectively.
  • You can also choose the Mystery option where the number of free spins, as well as the initial multiplier, will be randomly selected.

For those who just can’t wait to collect the required number of scatters, you can buy the feature! To do this click on the appropriate button, spend 100 times your bet and enjoy free spins.

Ante Bet

The Ante Bet appears in a small box to the left of the reels. This gives you the option to choose the bet multiplier. The game behaves differently depending on the bet. For instance, a bet multiplier of 25x will see more scatter symbols appear on the reels, doubling your chance of winning free spins.


This festive-themed online slot offers a welcome change to all the Father Christmas games around this time of the year. The graphics are excellent and the features add a welcome variety for endlessly entertaining gameplay. The game’s RTP and win potential also definitely brings plenty of excitement and the Megaways mechanic is always a win.
