The biggest holiday of the season is approaching, and what better way to start the countdown than to play high-paying, Christmas-themed slot games? Good thing Microgaming grants early wishes with the launch of its newest online slot this month: Festive Indulgence.
James Buchanan, the Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, shared the company’s plan to release titles that fit the holidays. In a press release, Buchanan commented: “Microgaming continues to diversify its exclusive content offering this December, along with popular partner games. Each new release is packed with thrilling features, formats and unique themes, offering operators incredible choice…We’re looking forward to building on that momentum as we head into 2020.”
Gameplay and Theme
The new fiad and Bitcoin slot features a basic game structure with 5 reels, 3 rows, and 9 paylines. This layout is far cry from Microgaming’s signature 243-payline slots. Regardless, the game has a 96.19% RTP and a high volatile metric. These dynamics allow players to receive frequent wins from winning combinations. Low and high rollers can play Festive Indulgence from 0.01 to 45.00 coins per spin across all devices. The highest payout is 3,333x per spin.
The game has a classic Christmas design to complement the layout and structure. It’s set in a homey Christmas cabin. In total, there are 11 festive symbols in the game. Fat Santa and the lady elf are the highest-paying symbols that grant 83.33x and 666x multipliers for five and four combo appearances. The Christmas wreath springs up as the wild. It can replace all regular symbols and grant 1,111.11x multiplier for five combo appearances. The low-to-medium paying symbols are cakes, turkey, bells, and the 9 to A royals.
With bets and winning combinations, Festive Indulgence holds endless bonus features. Although some seasoned-players may find the game slow-placed, it does boast fast-moving bonuses:
Free Spins – three or more scatter symbols trigger 15 free spins. Each spin can grant cash prizes and random rewards.
Free Spins With Multipliers – 5 wilds or high-value symbols across one payline can trigger the free spins round. For each extra spin, players can pocket 3x multipliers.
