Scrooge’s Jackpot is a Leander Games powered progressive video slot, launched in December 2017. The game was inspired by Dickens’ Christmas Carol and the infamous miser Scrooge. This time around, the old grudge is more than generous in awarding prizes, as this slot offers an in-play Wilds Feature, a Pick Me Bonus, a Free Spins Game and, above all, a progressive Jackpot that could be triggered on any spin.
The 5x3 grid is set on snow-covered London streets, with a Christmas tree on the left and Tiny Tim on the right. There are 20 paylines to wager bets from as low as $0.20 and up to $200.00 per spin. Once you’ve chosen the size of your bet, start the game by clicking Spin or enable the Autoplay mode with up to 100 automatic rounds. Symbols deliver payouts when appearing on consecutive reels from the leftmost positions to right. All wins are then multiplied by the line bet.
The game’s Wild is depicted with a candle, landing on the reels to substitute all symbols except the Bonus, thus contributing to winning combinations. Wild additionally awards prizes and hitting 5 matching icons will grant you a 500 coins prize. Another lucrative icon is that of Scrooge’s deceased friend, Jacob Marley, who will be more than happy to pay out 500 coins when 5 land on the reels. Other high-value icons are represented with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, delivering from 200 to 250 coins for 5 of a kind. Low-win icons are depicted with playing card symbols 9 through Ace, paying out from 50 to 100 coins when 5 land on a winline. The Bonus symbol is in charge of triggering the Bonus feature, while the Free Spins icons activate the Free Spins game.
Land 3 Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 to start the Festive Feast Pick Me Bonus and find hidden Christmas objects behind turkeys that could bring you prizes of up to 45x your bet. If at least 3 Free Spins symbols appear on reels 1, 3 and 5, the Free Spins Bonus will be triggered and 7 free spins will be awarded with the Candle Wilds feature present on every spin. This Candle Wilds feature is an in-game bonus that can be activated randomly on any spin during the main game. Scrooge will put 1 or 2 Wild columns to trigger huge wins. To top it all off, Scrooge could reward you with a progressive Jackpot on any spin. The higher your bet, the higher will be your chances of obtaining this amazing prize.
The game pays out steadily because of its medium volatility and an above the average RTP of 97.17%, which provide an engaging and interesting playing experience, alongside with excellent graphics, smooth animations and a somewhat spooky soundtrack. As Scrooge’s Jackpot is available on mobile, tablet and desktop, you can try it out anywhere, whenever you wish.
