The royals in the game appear in the form of classic A-10 symbols. Landing six of these same symbol types pays between x0.5 to x1.5 the bet.
Meanwhile, the medium paying symbols include a prison ball, a turkey and a hat. Landing six of these same symbol types pays between x2 to x5 the bet.
Lastly, the highest paying symbol appears as Ebenezer Scrooge himself and landing two, three, four or five of these pays x0.5, x2, x5, x10 and x25 the bet, respectively.
The game’s wild symbol appears with a gold frame and a red background while the scatter symbol shows a golden frame with a window in the middle of it.
Wilds help create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols on the reels, except for the scatter symbols. This symbol can only land on the reels two, three, four and five.
The title includes a variety of features including cascading wins, Scrooge cash respins, hauntings of Christmas and a bonus buy option.
In the game, when players spin the reels and create a winning combination, the cascading wins feature is activated. Here, all symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels, allowing new symbols to fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new wins are created.
Moreover, landing five scatter symbols activates the Scrooge cash respins feature. Here, the scatter symbols that landed on activation will remain on the reels with prizes attached, awarding the player three respins. Additionally, each time one or more scatter is landed, the respins counter will reset to three.
If players manage to fill an entire reel, all symbols on that reel will be multiplied by a multiplier based on the number of scatter symbols it has. Furthermore, players can also land Past, Present and Future symbols that are worth x10, x25 and x50 the bet, respectively.
Moving on to the Hauntings of Christmas feature, this can be randomly activated, awarding one of two different modifiers: the Bonus Award adds extra scatter symbols to the reels, increasing the chances of activating the Scrooge cash respins feature; and Max Megaways will create the maximum number of Megaways of 117,649.
Finally, for players who want to take advantage of the Scrooge cash respins feature, a bonus buy option is available for x50 the bet.
