The Scrooge game has a wonderfully traditional feel to it, with an original soundtrack playing in the background and all of the symbols looking as if they would be right at home in a child’s book of bedtime stories. Symbols include Keys, a Ledger, Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, Marley, Tiny Tim and Scrooge himself.
A Scrooge Logo symbol is a Wild Multiplier which doubles all prizes when it is used and a Door Knocker symbol is employed as a Scatter.
The Scroogecasino game has many unique features, including 2 Scatter symbols and a very promising bonus Feature.
All of the main characters of the original Dickens tale are present and accounted for. There is Tiny Tim who will multiply the line bet by 200x whenever 5 symbols are matched. The chained and damned Jacob Marley will reward a line bet multiplier of 250x and the skeletal Ghost of Christmas Future will multiply the bet by 300x. Next up is the jovial Ghost of Christmas Present who comes with a 350x multiplier and the ethereal Ghost of Christmas Past will award 400x. Finally, the last of the character symbols is Ebenezer Scrooge himself, who will uncharacteristically give out a generous multiplier of 600x on the line bet placed.
Each of these Characters is nicely designed in cartoon form and they will spring to life whenever they form a winning line. The game also features a few more symbols, such as a set of keys, a clock, a ledger, a bag of cash and a safe box. These symbols aren’t worth a great deal, but they will top up your betting balance nicely.
There is also a wild symbol, which is represented by a wreath and the game’s title. This will fill in winning lines for other game symbols except for the scatter symbol, which is depicted as a door knocker.
Stake at the game
This slot machine has 50 pay lines, so there will be plenty of different winning combinations to take into consideration. However, if you want to keep things simple you can always decrease the amount of active pay lines that are in play. This means that you could be a right Scrooge and place a total bet which is as stingy as 0.01. Alternatively, if you are feeling the Christmas spirit then you can go for a big bet with a maximum stake worth 250.00 which is pretty high stakes in online slot terms. There is plenty of leeway in between for players to find the bet size which best suits their betting purse.
It would appear that Scrooge is certainly feeling the festive cheer, because this slot machine lays down a veritable feast of bonus features. The main side game is the Xmas Dinner Bonus and it is triggered when 3 or more scatter symbols appear on the reels. When this happens, players will be whisked away to a dinner table where 5 of the game’s hungry characters are sitting in anticipation of some Yuletide grub. You simply have to select a dish for each of character by dragging it on to their plate. Each dish corresponds with a multiplier, one of which will be rewarded when most satisfied diner is highlighted. That multiplier value will be applied to the bet which triggered the bonus round.
Revellers of this slot machine will be able to enjoy some free spins, but these are triggered in a unique way. Basically, you need to collect two symbols to initiate the free spins round: the calendar symbol which will add one day to the calendar in the top left of the game screen and the “Plus One Free Spin” icon which will add a free spin to the tally in the top right corner. Once the calendar has reached Christmas Day, the amassed amount of free spins will be triggered and all wins will be doubled.
