Playtech fans may know that The Ghosts of Christmas is actually a clone of an older game, namely Santa Surprise, but given a much better aesthetic presentation with better quality graphics. The game concept remains the same, albeit with slight twists here and there, to make it appear 'different' from Santa Surprise. The game plays with the same 20 paylines, uses the same symbols values, the Bonus game now comes in 3 different screens, all with the same pick-and-win concept, but the Free Spins game has been changed from the old 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier, to 5 up to 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Personally, I would prefer the old fixed 10 free spins option, because getting only 5 free spins much too often can be very depressing indeed, to say the very least.

Scrooge is the Wild symbol, paying 10,000x the line bet for 5 of him, substitutes for other symbols except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols, but is a dumb Wild symbol nonetheless. The Green Ghost is the Scatter symbol, paying a nice 500x the total bet for 5 of them, and getting 3 or more of these symbols trigger Marley's Free Games. Pick one of the symbols to reveal the free spins number, from 5 up to 15 free spins, with all wins tripled. The Clock is the Bonus symbol, it doesn't pay anything for itself, but getting 3 or more consecutive symbols on any active payline triggers the Ghosts of Christmas Bonus game. As for the symbols, they pay from 500x to 50x the line bet for 5 of each kind, but still maintaining a good paytable.

There are 3 separate screens randomly selected for the Bonus game - in a classroom, in a living room, and at the graveyard, but all playing in the same way, by picking 3, 4 or 5 items to win cash prizes, depending on the number of Bonus symbols triggering the Bonus game. Prizes here are hardly ever big. The most that I could get was only 10x my total bet amount, the most common being 2x to 7x. Very low payouts indeed, not exciting at all, but the Bonus games do tend to come regularly, thereby providing some extended play time.
What I dislike most about this Ghosts of Christmas game is the difficulty in getting those blardy Free Spins game! Those 2 Green Ghosts would appear on and off, but the third one hardly ever come at all, adding more dissatisfaction in waiting for it to come. I've played this game over the years, but never really liking it that much, simply because I tend to get only 5 free spins most of the time, 10 free spins occasionally, but hardly getting that 15 free spins at all. That is most disappointing to me. The game Santa Surprise gives 10 free spins each and every time, I like that better, and with much better payouts too.

Slots that use Christmas as its main theme are my favourite, but I cannot say the same about the Ghost of Christmas. Using Scrooge as a main character says it all. This is a slot that is based on the very famous novel of Charles Dickens, Christmas Carol.
This is 5 reels and 20 pay lines slot where you can see symbols that are all somehow connected to this festive holiday. Most of the times I was landing good symbols but they were not paying a lot. I have not won anything that is more than 30 x bet.

The first thing that I have noticed when I started to play this game is that it is very easy to trigger the bonus. I got 5.10 win in the bonus where you have 5 presents and you open all of them. It kind of does not make sense. Next bonus I had to select 3 headstones to reveal cash prizes and I won 10 euros. After all of the headstones were revealed I saw that I opened the one with the highest prize of only 5 euros. I triggered the bonus again but this time I could select 4 headstones and I won 7.50 and the prizes were smaller this time too. This is called the Ghost of Christmas bonus. This bonus is triggered regularly but its potential is not so enviable.

The only thing that I liked with this game was the 3D movie at the beginning of the game. It shows some ghosts that are haunting Scrooge, but he remains the same in my story. I did not get a dime from him, he was really tight fisted. I really liked the graphics, the sound effects and I think it is a very well thought video slot game. But, the payouts are so lame and you lose interest in the game pretty fast.
Ghosts Of Christmas is another one of the newer Playtech video slot games. This game comes with 20 pay lines and 5 reels. As would be expected from Playtech, the graphics and the animations are superb. We already used to that with Playtech. What I have noticed in this game is that it reminds me of Bet on Soft 3D games. I have nothing against that because I'm a big fan Bet on Soft 3D games. But I'm a bit disappointed that the Playtech here copied another software provider.

Otherwise I have no other criticisms on this game. The short film that you see when you start the game is very interesting. The game has simple rules and that is the only difference with the already mentioned Bet on Soft 3D games, which in most cases have little more complicated rules. Playtech offered two bonus features here. There is a free spins bonus where you can get up to 15 free spins. Then there is one more bonus you can come, if on one of the pay-lines you have at least 3 symbols with a clock. I was a bit disappointed when I discovered that in fact this is a classic pick up bonus. Ever since I discovered Ghosts of Christmas I played it in several casinos. I've had a few wins greater than 100 x bet. My biggest win so far has been about 150 x bet. Not bad but then I played with a bet of only 0.2 euros so I cashed only 30 euros from these wins. This is a game with slight variations so that you will not quickly lose money here. This allows you that sometimes you can try with bigger bet.

All in all it seems to me like one very charming game. But I think it lacks originality and seems to me like a cheap copy of Bet on Soft 3D games. However for Ghosts of Christmas I give a passing grade with 6 stars.

Christmas arrives and with it the taste for playing Christmas themed slots, and maybe it's my impression, but it seems that Christmas slots are almost always more generous than others, as if they came with gift included hehe.

Playtech has been inspired by tales of Christmas and created Ghosts of Christmas, a slot in the format of 5 x 3 reels and 20 paylines, based on the story of old Scrooge and the three ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future ; it is not the first slot based on this tale I play, but I can say that I liked it, perhaps even more than the one created by Microgaming, and the reason for this may not be their special features, but rather the amount and frequency of the appearing of scrooge's wild symbol, which has been key piece ever to sustain my balance while I make turns in search of a big prize appears. Payouts are possibly not large, but are somewhat offset by a good hitting average during the base game. Special features in this slot are Ghosts of Marley's Christmas Bonus and Free Games.

- Ghost of Christmas Bonus: this figure is triggered by the occurrence of 3 or more clock symbols consecutively on some active payline from left to right, starting at the reel 1; the wild symbol is not eligible to participate in the activation of this feature. Once triggered this round, the screen makes transition to a scenario where you may see any of the three ghosts, past, present, or future, who present 5 books, gifts, or headstones, for you to choose; all elections have a prize, some larger than others. Activating these bonus rounds did not seem an extremely difficult task for me, and the best rewards I got here were approximately 5 times the value of my total stake, fair award just considering the frequency this feature is activated with.

- Marley's Free Games: this feature is activated by the appearance of 3 or more scatters in any position, identified with the image of a man in chains, which apparently is the ghost of Marley, the truth at this point is I do not remember that part of the story. After activated, you must do pick on any of the scatters to find out if you qualify for 5, 10, or 15 free spins, whose profits will all be multiplied by 3x. To be frank, considering how difficult it has seemed to trigger this characteristic to me, I think it should give 15 spins instantly, since I could spin the reels over 400 turns to access this instance and I got only five free spins and have only 2 small winnings on them; a disappointing detail in a game that I still consider quite fun.

Anyway, it's impossible not recommending this game and even more so close to this important holiday.
