Type Of Game: 5 Reel Slot
Scrooge is, as the name would suggest, a slot game themed around the infamous Dickens novel of the same name. Although probably more suited to the festive season the games playability and bonus features makes it a slot favourable amongst players whatever the month (although you may find it no longer listed in the summer months).
The game boasts 50 paylines across 5 reels and you can bet from as little as one coin per line to ten with coins valued from as little as 1p to as much as 50p each. Across the reels you will see Jack Frost, Tiny Tim, the ghosts of Past, Present and Future, clocks and an array of symbols that all have relevance to the book.
Bonus Features On Scrooge
The bonus feature on the Scrooge slot is activate when the Xmas Countdown (top left hand corner) reaches December 25th. A day is added to the date if when you spin in a winning combination you choose a symbol that reveals the Calendar. Your free spins counter to the right of the screen at the top increases should you reveal a Free Spin icon. You can keep adding to your free spin count right up until you hit Christmas Day when the free games are activated and all wins are doubled creating plenty of festive cheer.
There is another bonus feature available on this game too, the Xmas Dinner Bonus, and this is activated if you spin in three, four or five Door Knocker symbols anywhere on the reels. Should you do this then a new screen launches with five dinner guests and five meals, each of the latter display a multiplier. Simply allocate a meal to each guest and then one guest will be chosen at random and that multiplier is used for your initiating bet to create a scrumptious win! Multipliers are 6x, 8x, 10x, 15x or 20x your initial bet.
In addition to this you have the Scrooge wild symbol too which adds to the winning potential as it substitutes for any symbol (with the exception of the scatter icon). The Door Knocker is the scatter symbol as well as the activation for the Xmas Dinner Bonus round.
All in all Scrooge is an impressive game to play both audibly and graphically and with two bonus rounds, scatters and wilds, the winning potential definitely puts you in mind of a generous boss! The only pitfall, at a minimum 50p per spin, it might be a bit weighty on the purse strings if you want to play the maximum number of lines.
