Festive Indulgence Slot Review (Microgaming)

Festive Indulgence SlotMicrogaming knows how to please their fans and since we are heading towards Christmas, it makes a lot of sense to release a Christmas-themed slot. Well, Festive Indulgence is already out and I was able to play this slot immediately it was released to the market.

Below is my personal experience with it;

To spice things up a little bit, Microgaming has incorporated a traditional Christmas as is evidenced by the game’s symbols.  

Festive Indulgence comes on 5 reels and a small number of lines, only 9 lines are available.  Hover, the small number of lines should not fool you as the slot has the potential to award large wins of up to $135,000 in one single and free spin. This translates to about 3,000xs your total stake. The slot’s RTP currently stands at 96.1%.

Just like most other slots from this prominent developer, Festive Indulgence comes with several features that include wilds, free spins, scatters and multipliers among others.

Betting and Prizes

Festive Indulgence is a fairly priced game and the least I was allowed on it is $0.01 per line.  However, there is a maximum bet amount that Microgaming has placed for this slot which is $45 at most.

In the regular spins, I was met by much smaller odds that only paid 1,000xs as compared to a high of 3,000xs in the free spins.

Festive Indulgence Slot Features

One of the areas that I strongly feel Microgaming would have done better is in the slot’s major feature. Festive Indulgence doesn’t come with anything out of the ordinary, and we get to see the usual symbols that are available on multiple slots.

The most notable of those features is the wild Wreath.  This is also the symbol that comes with the highest pay. To get the most out of this symbol, you will need to simultaneously cover all the 15 available positions with the wilds.  The slot’s wild symbol can also be used as a substitute for low-value combos.

There is also another feature called the Christmas Present. This is the slot’s scatter symbol and is found on all the reels.

However, to get 15 free spins with it, you only need to land it on three reels. With this symbol comes an increased chance of getting some stacked wilds or a 3x multiplier that comes in handy when you want to boost your odds of winning.

Theme & Design

If you are looking for a traditional Christmas experience, then Festive Indulgence is your best bet. There are numerous symbols that are on this slot like the gifts, a turkey roast, wreaths, and images of Santa, his elf helper, as well as pudding and bells.

The slot’s low-value symbols also come themed as the Royals are made of gingerbread.


Festive Indulgence has many reasons why you should try it to warm up your possibly cold Christmas.  However, I don’t consider it a long-term slot, given the short stay of the Christmas festivities. However, you can take advantage of a couple of weeks that this slot will remain relevant and make some money while enjoying all the fun that comes with Christmas.
