A Christmas Carol pokie is based on the popular 19th century tale of the same name, written by Charles Dickens. It’s a story about a mean-spirited old miser Ebenezer Scrooge who hates Christmas. On Christmas Eve, he is visited by three spirits.

Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge to his childhood Christmas scenes while Ghost of Christmas Present shares with him other people’s holiday celebrations. The third one, Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, shows Scrooge a Christmas Day in the future, taking him to a funeral of a man no one mourns for. Having his tender side awakened by the previous two visions, Scrooge is now horrified to find the dead man whose funeral he has witnessed is himself. As a result, he promises to change his ways.

Having been an instant success, the novel inspired films, plays and operas, and now this old miser has also made it into the online gaming world. Witness Scrooge’s transformation from a bitter old man into a kind and generous human being as he awards Past and Future Wining Spins and Present Wilds.

Summary

A Christmas Carol features amazing graphics and animations of the quality we’re used to seeing in all products coming out of BetSoft factory. It delivers a lovely interpretation of the famous Dickens novel and a few interesting bonus rounds. However, we would have liked if Past and Future features were different in some way other than their names and direction the reels spin. A multiplier or two would make Scrooge’s presents even more appealing.

Still, the payout potential of this pokie is attractive enough to entice you to join the old miser for a Christmas celebration. Actually, A Christmas Carol is one of the better holiday themed games which traditionally come out around this period of the year. So don’t be a Scrooge, put your party hat on and greet the three spirits as they come bearing gifts.
