Coming soon to two of our featured SA online casinos is the new Scrooge Megaways online slot machine from iSoftBet. If you hadn’t already guessed by the title, this new iSoftBet is based on the Charles Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol, which was originally published back in 1843. The new Scrooge Megaways slot from iSoftBet has 6 reels and up to 117,649 different ways to win per spin (aka Megaways), and you will soon be able to take one spin of the reels either in the real money mode or free play demo mode from as little as R4.00 up to a maximum of R400.00 per spin ($/€/$0.20 up to $/€/£20.00 per spin).
It will be released simultaneously on desktop and mobile next week, and on any lucky spin, you will be playing to win up to 12,000x times your total stake. The game will take just seconds to launch in most web browsers, no download required, and some of the best places to play if you’re based in South Africa will be Casino.com and Mansion Casino. The main bonus feature in this game is a Streak Respins feature, and the special symbols to keep an eye out for as you spin the reels are the Wild Symbols and four different Scatter Symbols – the regular Scatter Symbols, and also the Past, Present, and Future Scatter Symbols.
This epic new iSoftBet slot also comes with a Cascading Reels game engine, which kicks into action each time a new winning combo forms. Any winning symbols that land will instantly be removed from the reels, which then causes more new symbols to cascade down from above and fill the empty positions. If this creates another winner, then the same process will repeat, and the reels will only stop cascading when there are no more new wins in view.
To gain entry to the Cash Respins feature, you need to land 5 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere in view on the same spin. Once in, the Scatter Symbols that triggered the feature will lock in place, and you will now receive 3 respins. Each Scatter Symbol has a multiplier value attached, and the aim is to try and land as many of these symbols as possible before you run out of respins. Each time another Scatter Symbol lands during the feature, it will lock in place and reset the respin counter to 3.
When the respin counter has reached zero, the individual multipliers that are in view will be multiplied by your total stake to bring you one huge cash prize. During the feature, the Past, Present, and Future Scatter Symbols can land to award another instant cash prize. For example, landing the Past Scatter Symbol gets you an instant cash prize worth just 1x times your stake. Landing a Present Scatter Symbol gets you 25X, and landing a Future Scatter Symbol gets you 50X.
The game also has a couple of other fun in-play features (aka modifiers) to look forward to. They include the Bonus Awards feature and the Max Megaways feature.
