The vintage images, Christmas Carol theme, and general design all exude a warm festive atmosphere. The Christmas game from Pragmatic Play has a respectable betting range of $0.2-$125, 2,00,704 winning combination, and a maximum payout of 20,000x which is better than many slots we have reviewed. Also, the highest regular payout of 40x, though somewhat low, is still better than slots such as Rise of Giza with just 12x. If you land six of the grim reaper symbols, you receive the highest payment of 40x. While, all other symbols (ghosts of Christmas past and present, Mr. Fezziwig, Tiny Tim, and card) however, have payouts that are significantly low.
When you hit a winning combination, the Tumble feature becomes active and stays that way until you hit a winning streak. A golden pocket watch serves as the Scatter symbol and grants 23 free Spins at max along with multipliers. The Ante Bet option is intriguing since it doubles your chances of winning free spins. Like most Pragmatic Play slots, the player could buy Free Spins using the 'Buy Free Spin' feature, at a premium rate of 100x the bet amount.

The Bonus features
The Tumble feature gets triggered when you receive a winning combination. All of the winning symbols tumble down from the reels and are replaced by new ones, allowing you to form new combinations. As long as you are able to generate additional winnings, these cascading spins will keep getting triggered.
When four or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the Free Spins bonus is activated. Following that, you can select between three free spins, each with a different initial multiplier size. In each choice, you receive more free spins the more launched scatters you have:
4 scatter symbols trigger 5, 10, or 15 free spins with a starting multiplier of 10, 5, or 1, respectively.
5 scatter symbols award 9, 14, or 19 free spins with a starting multiplier of 10, 5, or 1, respectively.
6 scatter symbols give 13, 18, or 23 free spins with a starting multiplier of 10, 5, or 1, respectively.
You can also choose the Mystery option, which will determine the number of free spins and the initial multiplier randomly.
Much like all other Pragmatic Play slots, these spins, and associated features are also available in the Christmas Carol Megaways free game.
The player can choose between two bet multipliers, 20x and 25x, in which case the bonus spins are awarded normal and 2x times, respectively.
These features hold a special relevance for players opting for the Christmas Carol Megaways real money game.
Payouts and RTP
The slot has a moderately pleasing RTP of 96.58%. The game's extreme volatility would however grant very infrequent payouts. And that could be a deterrent for players indulging in the max bet of $125.00.
Maximum Win and Highest Multiplier
The game offers a max 20,000x win while playing at the max bet and availing all the bonus rounds along with the possible top free spins.
