As a slot player it can often be the actual name of a slot that will attract you to play it, however when you come across a slot called the Scrooge slot then you would probably be put off playing it! However, this is one of Microgaming’s numerous Christmas themed slot games, and as you are about to discover, when playing it the slot may not live up to its name!
Let us get the basics out of the way first, the Scrooge slot is a 50 pay line slot which has a range of different staking options available, and being a Microgaming slot you can play it for free or for real money at any casino site that has the game available.
What makes it fairly unique other than its theme is that you can play a unique picking game once three or more bonus symbols spin into view and you have to serve up a dish of food to one of five different people and by doing so you will be awarded with a base game stake amount multiplier.
A set of two different scatter symbols can be spun in when playing this slot, one of those symbols add one free spin to the free spins meter whenever it makes and appearance and the other will knock one day off the calendar when it has been spun in.
The way in which the free spins round is finally triggered is by getting enough countdown symbols spinning in on any playing session to that the calendar counts right down the Christmas Day, when it does you then get to play off the number of free spin you accumulated.
There are plenty of slot games that are always going to be on offer to you when you play at Microgaming powered casino sites. Fortunately now most of those casinos are legally obliged, by their licence issuer, to list the payout percentage that all of their slot and other casino games have been designed to award players over the long term.
Therefore, finding out how high or in some case how low the RTP’s are is not much easier to do! However, to save you having to look up the payout percentage of the Scrooge slot we are happy to let you know it has been set high at 96.74%.
One thing which may suddenly cross your mind when playing the Scrooge slot is that due to the way the free spins are saved up when you are playing it, you may be considering playing this slot with bonus credits awarded to you when you have claimed a casino bonus and let the free spins mount up, and then stop playing and return to playing it when you are not playing with bonus funds.
However, that is something Microgaming have thought about too and as such if you have been playing this slot with bonus credits and have accumulated free spins, any play through requirements will carry forward if you trigger the bonus game at a later date when playing with cash credits!
