Scrooge Megaways Slot (iSoftBet)
Scrooge Megaways is iSoftBet’s 2021 winter release, and from the look of things, it’s like the developer was inspired by the famous Charles Dickens novel popularly known, A Christmas Carol.
The Old Scrooge has served as the main character in many holiday-themed games over the years, and in this new title, iSoftBet brings back all the memories.
If you have seen other games from iSoftBet’s, especially Western Gold Megaways, then you have an idea of what to expect with Scrooge Megaways.
I played this new slot for real money wagers, and here is my unbiased review:
The slot is set on 6 reels which is quite common with slots that use the Megaways concept. You can get as many as 117,649 ways to win but this is not guaranteed since each spin gets some random Megaways.
For the symbols, there are cascading reels, random modifiers, a wild symbols, scatters, plus the Scrooge Cash Respins (aka streak respins).
Betting and Prizes
A spin will cost you at least $0.20 per spin, but you can use as much as $20 per spin.
Although I have seen Megaways that pay much higher, Scrooge Megaways still manages to pay up to 12,000x the stake ($240,000). It is a medium volatility slot title.
Scrooge Megaways Slot Features
The slot’s reels do not include a horizontal one at the top, so you just get 6 reels and each can receive 2 to 7 symbols. Since the number is random, you can get as many as 117,649 ways to win.
To form a combo, I needed 3 to 6 similar symbols landing left to right, and this must be on adjacent reels. If done correctly, there is a prize that you get, in addition to triggering the Cascading Reels.
As usual with the cascades, they remove the winning symbols and replace them with new ones. This process will only end once there are no more cascades.
The wild is almost present on every modern slot, and it is a great feature here as it helps in forming the winning combos. Although you only get it on the middle four reels, it’s a useful feature for substituting the regular icons.
Scrooge Megaways has some random modifiers as well, and they will trigger randomly moments with the help of a feature known as Haunting of Christmas:
Bonus Award helps to trigger the Respins by bringing in additional scatters on the reels.
Max Megaways- boosts the reel (all) sizes to get 7 symbols, which is how I ended with 117,649 ways in a spin.
The streak respin feature- this one help trigger the Scrooge Cash Respins but you need at least 5 scatters in view. Initially, I received 3 respins, which reset whenever you get new symbols. If 3 respins pass without a new scatter landing, the feature ends.
The number of scatters available on that reel will determine the multiplier (this can get up to 7xs).
Theme & Design
Scrooge serves as the main role in this slot that is inspired by A Christmas Carol. Other symbols include Royals (9 to A), a top hat, a ball with chains, a turkey, plus the Wilds and scatters that serve as feature symbols.
Overall, Scrooge Megaways is one of the best designed, and well-presented slot machines from iSoftBet.
Its theme fits well with the upcoming winter holidays, and although it’s not an entirely original title, it will be an attractive game to players during the holidays.
