Scrooge: Bonuses, Free Spins and 2x Multipliers
Scrooge cannot live up to its claims of big wins without having unique bonus features and symbols.
The Scrooge logo represents the wild symbol. This symbol can substitute other symbols to create winning combinations. This symbol also acts like a multiplier and doubles all the money you win when the wild symbols substitutes a symbol to complete a winning combination. The Wild Symbol cannot replace the Scatter Symbol to activate bonus rounds.
The Scrooge door knocker forms the scatter symbol. Scatter symbols can create winning combinations even when they appear on pay lines that are not activated. The cash that you win with scatter symbols is calculated using a standard multiplier table.
Multiple scatter symbols in most games unlock the “Free Spin Bonus Rounds”. If you have played “Santa Paws”, “Retro Reels” or “ Starscape”, you would know.
However, in this game, getting three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reel send you into the ‘Xmas Dinner Bonus Feature”.
In this bonus round you will find 5 meals that you should serve to 5 hungry characters that appear on the screen. You drag a meal and drop it in the plate before the character. When you have finished serving all 5 characters, they begin to flash one after the other on the screen and finally stop at one character. The multiplier that is fixed to the character will be applied to your cash to get you great bonuses.
The most interesting feature is the Free Spin Feature that this game offers. All the winnings in this round are doubled. However what is more interesting is how you actually unlock a free spin bonus round.
Whenever you strike a winning combination, you can click any one of the symbols in this combination to reveal an “Add a free spin” or “Add an extra Day” option. Depending on what option appears, a free spin gets added to the Free Spin tab or an extra day gets added to the “ Christmas Countdown Calendar”. When this calendar reaches the 25th of December, you enter the free spin bonus round and the number of free spins that you have accumulated will be awarded to you.
The bet amount that you play in this round is a weighted average bet that is calculated by dividing the bet amount in the game that activated the free spin by the number of days and then multiplying it by the number of pay lines that you have played so far.
Don’t worry, the game is programmed to do this automatically. All you need to do is spin and collect your booty!!
