Slot games do not get much sleeker than Scrooge, a fantastically-crafted 5 reel, 50 pay line game from Microgaming. This game which is based on Charles Dickens' Christmas fable offers an unparalleled overall presentation as well as a number of interesting features, the most unique of which is the free spins bonus which is activated on Christmas Day (in the game, not real life!).
One of the most interesting aspects of playing slots which are at the cutting edge of online gaming is to marvel at the new features being offered to gamers by providers. Games like Scrooge will leave you both awestruck and anxious to see what the industry will come up with next to outdo itself. You may actually find yourself gazing in awe at the screen while playing Scrooge instead of paying attention to how much you are winning or losing.
How to play Scrooge
Start by making your ante bet of anywhere between $.01 and $250. Then click on ‘spin’ to activate the reels. Naturally, if you have the maximum 50 pay lines in play then something is very likely to happen on every spin!
The most interesting, unique feature in the game is the free spins bonus: every time there is a winning combination, you are asked to select one of the symbols in the winning pay line. The symbol will either add a free spin to your ‘bank’ of free spins in the upper right hand corner or it will move the date in the upper left hand corner forward a day. Once the day reaches December 25th, you enter the free spins bonus where you cash in all of the spins you have accumulated. Each free spin also benefits from a 2x multiplier.
The door ring is the scatter symbol in Scrooge. Have at least three of these come up anywhere on the reels to win up to $50,000 in the related bonus game where you sit to dinner with some of the characters from the timeless story. Finally, Scrooge also has a wild icon feature. Scrooge himself can replace all icons on active pay lines aside from the scatter symbol.
