Setting the Scene
We start with Scrooge grumpily closing his window to keep the cold weather and snow out. He is then seen greedily counting a large stack of gold coins with a large scowl on his face. Suddenly, there is a green flash as the clock strikes midnight and a chained ghost bursts into his room. This is the ghost of his ex-business partner. He motions towards the door and Scrooge sees the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of Christmas present, and the ghost of Christmas future. They quickly push him into his chair and light a Christmas tree in front of him. This is where we find him sitting on the side of the slot, uneasily tapping his fingers and moving his foot.
The setting for this slot is Scrooges bedroom. The player can see a 3D animated Scrooge sitting in a large, red chair. Behind him is a large grandfather clock and across from him, on the other side of the reels, is a lone burning candle sitting on top of a chest of drawers. To the right and left of the reels, the player can see the various paylines highlight in yellow numbers. The name of the slot is on top in red with a dusting of snow and also scrolls to give additional information about the bonus features available on the mobile slots casino game.
Under the reels, players can adjust their lines as well as line bets. The play can also see their win as well as total bet. Finally, the player has the option to spin, auto spin, bet max and get additional information by clicking on the brown book that says “info”.
