Scrooge is a Christmas themed online video slot from MicroGaming that features characters from the classic holiday story. It features 50 paylines, a wild symbol, free spins, and the XMAS Dinner Feature that awards up to 20x your bet.
The XMAS Dinner Feature is triggered when three or more scattered door knocker symbols land on the reels during a spin. You are taken to a screen with 5 hungry characters waiting for you to serve their Christmas dinner. Try to guess which one will be the winner and give that character the highest paying dinner to win 20x your bet, lowest win is 6x your bet.
Free spins are triggered in a unique way. You will notice when you load the game, that there is a XMAS countdown calendar on the top left of the screen and a free spins counter on the top right of the screen. While you play the slot, each time any symbols line up for a win, you can select one of the winning symbols to reveal either +1 free spin or +1 day. Once the XMAS calendar reaches the 25th of December, you are awarded the free spins that have accumulated and all wins are doubled during free spins. By the time that happens, there is usually over 30 free spins to play at the least. If you leave the game, you can come back any time and the accumulated free spins and days will still be there. That information is stored on the casino server, you can even log in from a different computer and resume the game.
The amount you can win during free spins is weighted by the amount bet during the whole process of accumulating the free spins and days toward the countdown. I found this out after low-rolling until the 24th and then started betting max. I definitely didn’t win what I should have with 40 free spins on a $5 bet. So stick to one bet size until the feature is triggered so that it will be fair to you.
Play Scrooge this holiday season at these MicroGaming online casinos.
