Microgaming have some of the best licenses of any developer, turning the biggest films, TV shows and more into pokie form. One of their more unique licenses is for the Charles Dickens classic, Scrooge. This is a bright, light and fun creation that can brighten up any holiday season.
Scrooge is available on the Spin Palace online casino, where you can also pickup some bonus cash to get you started.
There are some simple cartoon graphics at play here, but with a Christmasy setting and some great sounds, this works very well. There are some high paying symbols on Scrooge, with the wild paying 6,000 for 5 of them and 1,000 for 4 of them. The second highest symbol doesn’t pay a great deal at just 600x, but there are 4 others that pay 250x or more, which provides a nice balance.
You can bet for as little as $0.01 per line, and you can even choose how many lines you want to play. Bear in mind that the high RTP is calculated with all paylines in place, and this drops if you play fewer lines.
The main bonus round is the Xmas Dinner Bonus, where you choose a dinner for the characters on the screen and then wait to see which one finishes first. This provides an average return of around 8x to 12x, but it’s not unusual for you to come away with more than 20x.
There is also a free spins round, which is where you can win the most money and where you can unlock the game’s 120,000 coin jackpot. What’s more, you can trigger the Xmas Dinner Bonus during this free spins feature.
Scrooge makes us yearn for the holiday season. It is a big, warm slice of nostalgia, and one that we enjoyed playing. The fact that we walked away with a nice profit is almost irrelevant.
