Christmas Carol Megaways Slot (Pragmatic Play)
Pragmatic Play has not been left out as developers create all type of holiday-themed slots. Christmas Carol Megaways is an exciting new slot game that this developer has created in anticipation for the 2020 Christmas holiday season.
Not many developers have considered using the Megaways for a traditional Christmas-themed slot, but Pragmatic Play has pulled it so well.
From what I have seen, much of what has gone into this slot is what we saw in the Great Rhino Megaways, and the only notable changes are the graphics. This is my full review of Christmas Carol Megaways:
Christmas Carol Megaways uses 6 reels, and each reel can get a many as 8 symbols. This gives you between 324 and 200,704 Megaways.
Pragmatic Play has given this slot several great features that include free spins, wilds, cascading reels, increasing multipliers, and scatters.
Betting and Prizes
You will be allowed to pick from a betting range of between $0.20 and $100 per spin.
The rewards from this slot are not bad since the highest payout available is 20,000x the stake.
A majority of slots using the Megaways concept are generally high in volatility, and this is the same case with Christmas Carol Megaways.
However, the developer has provided a decent RTP of 96.48%, which is within the average for modern slots.
Christmas Carol Megaways Slot Features
One notable difference with this slot is that the developer has given the 6 reels up to 8 symbols, and not the 7 that is common on other Megaways.
It gives you an opportunity to get as many as 200,704 ways to win.
Wilds are among the symbols present, and the slot will use cascading reels to replace new symbols with the winning ones.
These cascades will keep on forming as long as there are wins.
Wilds (appears in a Scrooge image), will be present on the horizontal reel above. They come in handy when you want replacements while forming new/existing combinations.
To gain access to the scatters, you need to land at least 4 Pocket Watch symbols. The slot allows you an opportunity to pick the level of volatility from the list provided below:
15 free spins (multiplier starts from 1x).
10 free spins (multiplier of 5x).
5 free spins (multiplier starts from 10x).
With every new cascade, the multiplier will increase, and there is no limit on how high it can go.
Theme & Design
The slot borrows inspiration from the work of Charles Dickens, and Pragmatic Play has gone for the Christmas holidays theme.
In addition to the excellent graphics, the slot has several themed symbols that include images of Scrooge, Tim and Bob Cratchit, the three ghosts of Christmas (Past, Present and Future), as well as some Royals.
Overall, I enjoyed playing this game, and given that it offers an exciting theme, excellent graphics, and big rewards, it is a great option to all levels of players.
