In the Scrooge Megaways slot, iSoftbet took the famous miser and make him a little bit more generous. That’s right, this game has 6 reels, the Megaways mechanic and a whole lot of bonuses. Some of these include respins, modifiers, multipliers and more. It’s on my top Christmas slots of 2021 because of all this and more, is it on yours?
|Volatility||Medium to High|
Excitingly, when you review this Scrooge Megaways slot, you’ll see that, like other mobile slots, this game is fully optimised across a range of different devices. The game can be played when you’re out and about easily. Additionally, you can set it up and let it autospin while you do other important things such as present wrapping in the holiday season.
Scrooge Megaways slot has 6 reels and uses the Megaways mechanic to give thousands of ways to win on each spin. Additionally, the slot has a small betting limit, a number of additional bonus features and a top win of 12,000x the bet. The RTP of 96.98% is also a decent addition to the game and helps to give you nice returns when spinning over time.
As this game is one of the Megaways slots, there is no way for you to adjust the number of paylines you bet on or play with. The number of ways to win changes on each spin so each bet will cover as many lines as there are offered. As such, the game does have a medium to high volatility level to reflect this.
Bet Lines and Betting
The Megaways mechanic means that you can enjoy up to 117,649 ways to win on a single spin. However, the reality is that this won’t be the most common number, and you’ll usually be spinning with fewer lines than that. Other features here include a bet limit from 20p per spin through to £20, which makes this a great option for the budget-orientated.
Graphics and sound
Scrooge Megaways is a beautifully designed game and takes you right back to Victorian London. The reels rest on a snow-covered London street. On the reels are a range of stunning symbols including the scatter symbol which triggers the free spins. The whole game is accompanied by a festive soundtrack as well as the laughter of people on the street to add to the ambience.
Scrooge Megaways Game Play
To play this game, iSoftbet made the setup very simple. All you need to do is land at least three matching symbols on one of the winning lines. The more matching symbols you can land, the bigger the win. I also provide a range of different bonuses here too, with a wild and four different scatters on the reels which will activate the respins feature.
First up in the bonus features is the wild. This is red and gold and can replace all other symbols on the reels with the exception of the scatter symbols. When it replaces other icons on the reels, it helps to make winning combinations. I think this is a really helpful bonus as those wins don’t always come around that often in Scrooge Megaways.
When a win does land, there’s the Cascading Wins feature on hand. This will then blast any of the winning symbols from the reels. Subsequently, this leaves some empty spaces on the reels and allows additional symbols to drop in and take their place. This means that you get a new win. The process continues until no new wins land on the reels.
The Respins activates when at least five scatters land on the reels. This offers up 3 respins with the triggering scatters locked on the reels. If a new scatter lands, it also locks and the number of respins resets. All scatters have a multiplier value attached too. The Past, Present and Future scatters land during this feature and can award as much as 50x your bet.
Scrooge Megaways verdict
Scrooge Megaways is really what you would expect given the name. It’s a reworking of some of iSoftbet’s other slots too, which means there isn’t much in the way of surprises. In fact, it’s reduced a lot of the wins too, from the 1000x scatter, it’s now 50x — emulating the game’s namesake! That being said, it has a charming Christmas feel and a fun bonus round.
