Pragmatic Play revives spirit of the Holiday Season with new slot ‘Christmas Carol Megaways’

The game mechanics of Pragmatic Play’s newest slot will look similar to other Holiday themed titles released this year by the same developer.  ‘Christmas Carol’ features cascading symbols and free games through which players can add more cash to their bank.

Betting denomination can go from $0.20 to $100 with a max payout of 20,000x the stake.  The RTP rate is a solid 96.48%. However, players can increase the payout rate to 96.58% by activating the extra bet feature. Extra bet will simply double the chance of unlocking the free spins.

Again, the slot’s Megaways system can trigger up to 200,704 ways of winning through cascading symbols, wilds, multipliers and bonus games.

Cascading Symbols

Cascading symbols help players form more winning combinations. Every time a winning combo lands on the reel, the winning symbols freeze and new symbols replaces them. The golden timepiece serves as the wilds of the game.  The appearance of four or more scatter symbols in the view unlocks the bonus round.

The bonus round gives players control on how many free spins and starting multipliers will it be in the game. The more starting multipliers, the lesser free spins will be. The longer the duration of the free spins means the higher chances of building up multipliers. Also, bolder players can try the round’s mystery option.

In addition, players in other territories will gain access to go straight to the free games round. They can do this by availing the buy bonus feature.

While the theme is far from original, Christmas Carol Megaways is still a treat for real money online casino players this Holiday Season.  Ebeneezer Scrooge along with the other characters in the story like the three Ghosts of Christmas present, past and future, Tim and Bob Cratchit will appear in the game.

“Christmas lights and Christmas trees are starting to go up in households all over the world and we can’t wait for one of the most magical times of the year, so we’re inviting you to join in with Christmas Carol Megaways,™” said Lena Yasir, Vice President at Pragmatic Play.

“With a widely recognisable and a potentially lucrative Bonus Round, our Christmas hit will have players hoping the magic of the season never ends.”
