Holiday Spirits Review
Charles Dickens would roll over in his grave if he knew that his classic novel, A Christmas Carol, has been turned into an online slot. Enriched with characters borrowed from the famous Christmas ghost story, Play’n GO have done a fantastic job at illustrating it. You’ll get to meet Scrooge’s departed business partner Jacob Marley, the friendly ghost of Christmas Past, the ghost of Christmas Present who’s a forgetful giant, and the spooky spirit of the Christmas Yet to Come. It’s a shame about the slot being a total copy of their other 3×3 reel online game but, luckily, they don’t share the same jolly festive theme.

Holiday Spirits Bonus Features
If you’ve ever played the developer’s Chronos Joker slot, you’ll notice that the bonus features, including the respins bearing multipliers of the present, past and future, are sort of identical to this game. However, this time, the Dickensian theme of the famous ghosts of Christmas ties in much neater with the festive theme here.
Central to the game’s scene is the cold-hearted miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, who appears as wild and substitutes for all paying symbols in Holiday Spirits.
Ebenezer’s Clock Multiplier
When the clock strikes one, the three Ghosts of Christmas will visit Scrooge. But before that, Ebenezer’s Clock, positioned at the top of the reels in the Holiday Spirit slot, will trigger and activate a multiplier of 2x up to 10x randomly on any spin.
Win Spin Feature
This is essentially a respin feature which you can trigger with two stacked symbols of a kind on any two reels carrying an active multiplier on a non-winning spin. The multipliers come in the form of Christmas spirits who visit Scrooge on Christmas Eve.
Expect the Christmas Past from a double stack with an active 10x multiplier, the Christmas Present with either 2x, 3x, or 4x multiplier, and the Christmas Future with a 2x multiplier. The spirit respins recur for as long as it takes for you to win andthe rewards play out as follows:
- Win Spins of Christmas Past – Double stacked reels remain sticky during the respin and on any non-winning respin the multiplier operates in descending order – 5x, 4x, 3x, and 2x, the latter assuring you a win.
- Win Spins of Christmas Present – Stacked reels stay sticky for a respin which guarantees a win but the multiplier remains the same at 3x, 4x or 5x.
- Win Spins of Christmas Future – Stacked reels remain sticky throughout the respin. Following any non-winning respin, your multiplier ascends by 3x, 4x, 5x and finally 10x, which guarantees a win.
Last but not least is the Ebenezer’s Gift feature. As he transforms into a better man, he randomly doubles any existing multipliers. This Christmas miracle can happen in the base game when the clock multiplier is in effect or during the three Win Spin features.
Holiday Spirits Jackpot
Scrooge hasn’t yet reached the level of generosity for handing out jackpots but he’s willing to pay 1,600x as a max payout for any lucky players who pass the tests of the three spirits.
RTP and Volatility
The default RTP of Holiday Spirits is a decent 96.54% but, as as per usual, be sure to check as it might differ from casino to casino. Additionally, settled at medium volatility, this game should spread some Christmas cheer on more than one occasion.
