The characters from the novel are perfectly represented on the reels. Even their animations are in consonance with their characters. The Xmas Dinner Bonus also complements the theme.

Betting Options (10)
All three betting options, the number of paylines, the coin size and the number of coins per payline, can be manipulated by the player. The line bet range varies from 0.01 to 5.00 and the total bet range varies from 0.01 to 250.00. Therefore Scrooge is suitable for both low rollers and high rollers.
There is no progressive jackpot and this is the only drawback in the slot game. A first fixed jackpot of 6000 coins however partially makes up for the drawback.
