Want a slot that gives you a free re-spin of the reels every time you win? Maybe opens up even more ways to win all whilst giving you lots of holiday cheer? Time to play Carol of the Elves slot.
As far as concepts go Yggdrasil kept things simple. You have a 5×5 grid of symbols, all classic Christmas slot themes. You have reindeers and polar bears, rabbits and cute foxes. You even have Ace to 9 rounding out the low paying symbols.
Then the theme gets a little odd as you have two Elves sitting above what looks like lanterns, surrounded by a Christmas wreath. It doesn’t say ‘Christmas’ so much as ‘Hope those Elves don’t get burned down’ and ‘where is this going?’
So the slot theme is a little bit of a stretch, but once you start spinning and getting those wins, you won’t care much what happens to those elves as long as they keep glowing like the North Star.
This is probably one of the less dangerous Yggdrasil slots online that have been out in a while, mostly because its around the mid-volatility variance. That means that you’ll get plenty of wins, both small and some very large.
But this Carol of the Elves slot has a secret weapon to bring big thrills because all you need is one win to see a chain reaction like no other.
That’s because a single win will start removing some of those ice blocks on the reels. So whilst you may start with a 45 ways to win slot machine, as you get a win, and on each re-spin, you start unlocking more ways to win and a bigger game.
If you manage to unblock all 10 ice blocks you’ll then be playing on a 3,125 ways to win slots and the wins will keep coming fast, and (hopefully) heavy.
The Carol of Elves slot paytable doesn’t look that generous when you open it up, but don’t forget that on every win you’ll get a free re-spin. You need lots of wins in a row to get the whole board open.
Once you are there, all the wins start charging those two precariously hanging elves on the side of the reels. One will give you multipliers on all your wins, the other will give you lives.
It’s not quite like a free spin bonus, but it feels a little like it because the lives you collect will allow you to keep spinning on a non-winning spin. You don’t usually last on this level for very long, but long enough to get that thrill that maybe you might walk away with very Merry Christmas.
The Carol of Elves slot isn’t unlike what you’ll find in our Valley of the Gods 2 review in that sense. But it is a little easier on the wallet and perfect for some seasonal cheer.

Respins and Expanding Reels: You start with 5 reels and 5 rows, only 12 of those symbols are blocked in Ice and only 45 ways to win. You get wins by getting consecutive symbols from left to right.
However, on every win, you get a respin of the reels and this continues until you get no more wins. As a bonus, each winning combination releases a star that destroys one of the blockers giving you progressively bigger wins.
If you destroy all 12 positions on the reels you open up a 3125 way to win slot machine. If you don't win before you unlock all 12 positions, they go back on ice and you have to pay to spin again.
Free Spin Lives & Multipliers: When all the blockers are destroyed you are awarded 1 extra life. This means on a non-winning spin you don't lose all the opened spaces, but get one more re-spin.
Stars from the fox, reindeer, A, Q and 10 are collected towards the extra lives features. You can increase your lives collection by 1 for every 5 stars you collect from these winning symbols. This feature end when you run out of lives.
Stars from the bear, rabbit, K, J and 9 are collected towards the win multiplier. You can increase your multiplier by 1 for every 5 green stars you collect. You keep on collecting for as long as you keep winning. The multiplier multiplies all your wins for that round.
Let's be merry and bright and drink in the joy that is this Carol of the Elves mobile slot game.
With a top win of over 5,000x your bet, but lots of fun re-spins and wins, this is exactly what we need from a Christmas slot - something easy to play, but with a generous spirit.
Granted, getting that top win won't be easy, and it won't happen often. This is a mid-variance game after all. So take our advice and walk away if you win anything close to 500x to 1000x your bet and maybe head to the Santa's Riches slot machine to continue the good cheer.
Carol of the Elves is a 5x5 real money slot machine with 45 ways to win slot with expanding reels that opens up to 3125 way to win. You get re-spins on every win and can even catch multipliers and free spins along the way.
