A Christmas Carol is one of the most popular novels by Charles Dickens. It tells the story of the miser Ebenezer Scrooge, who hated the spirit of giving in Christmas. On one Christmas Eve the ghost of his business partner Marley, along with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, visit Scrooge and leave him full of love, kindness and joy. Microgaming and Playtech have released slot games based on A Christmas Carol.

The Microgaming online slot is titled Scrooge. All the characters from the novel are depicted as symbols on the reels. The Scrooge Logo is the wild symbol and the Door Knocker is the scatter symbol. The animations reflect the portrayal of the characters and Microgaming’s expertise. The free spins bonus is triggered in an innovative manner. The designated combination of symbols randomly adds one free spin to the counter or moves forward one day on the calendar. When the date reaches December 25 the free spins bonus is triggered with the number of free spins in the counter. The payouts are doubled in the free spins. In the free spins animations the characters, including Scrooge, get affected with the Christmas spirit. The second screen feature is the Xmas Dinner bonus. Five characters from the novel are seated for a Christmas dinner. You assign one Christmas dish to each character and receive a bonus payout. Scrooge can be played at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas.

The Playtech video slot game based on A Christmas Carol is titled Ghosts of Christmas. It has an introductory video clip that briefly narrates the story for those who may have forgotten it. There are similarities with Microgaming’s Scrooge. The main characters from the novel appear as symbols on the reels and the win animations are very appropriate. Scrooge is the wild symbol and the ghost of Marley is the scatter symbol. The Playtech slot game offers a thematic bonus game. In the bonus game the setting is randomly chosen as of one of the three Ghosts of Christmas. There you have to pick objects to win bonus credits. The slot game Ghosts of Christmas also offers a free spins bonus round triggered by Marley. In this bonus game you will be awarded a random number of free spins. All line and scatter payouts are tripled in the free spins. The free spins can be triggered indefinitely. Ghosts of Christmas can be played at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino.
