All About Festive Indulgence Slot
Fans of Microgaming will know that they are big fans of the Xmas slot – slaying it each season with a new holiday-themed game. Old classics of theirs include Deck the Halls, Santa’s Wild Ride, Scrooge, Santa Paws and Happy Holidays. Next in the line is Festive Indulgence, this 2019 release which keeps things fresh, yet traditional at the same time.
Festive Indulgence is an old-skool basic slot with just 9 active lines across a standard 5×3 reel grid. In short, nothing too extravagant, just enough warmth and decorations to keep you in the holiday mood as you spin the reels.
Festive Indulgence Themes, Gameplay, Symbols and Pay Tables
The theme of Festive Indulgence is about the Xmas dinner, avoiding the usual mix of Santa, the reindeers and Xmas trees. Sure, familiar characters will pay a visit to the screen, but the idea is to tickle your appetite for all the lovely dishes and treats we can experience only at Christmas time.
What you can see through the shopfront are the symbols of the game – gingerbread card royals from 9 through to Ace, golden bells, Christmas puddings, festive turkeys with vine, cakes, female elves and the man himself, Santa Claus. These last ones are high-value icons and will give you 750x your stake should you line them up across one of the paylines. You can set your bet at $0.01 per line and go as high as $45 per spin across all devices.
Festive Indulgence Features
A Christmas wreath stands in as the slot’s Wild card. Not only does it perform the usual replacement duties, it’s also the most lucrative symbol in the game by far. Landing 5 across a payline gives you a staggering 1,111.11x your stake. As part of a winning combo, the Wild will double your earnings.
Free Spins and Multipliers
A Christmas present is the Scatter and that’s the main feature trigger. Land 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels in a single spin and you will receive a gift of 15 free rotations with a 3x multiplier. Strangely, collecting 4 or 5 Scatters at once results in the same number of free spins. Freebies can be retriggered and another combo of 3 Scatters will add 15 more free spins.
The Slot Buzz Verdict
Festive Indulgence is a very basic Xmas slot from Microgaming. Many seasonal slots go down this route – studios don’t want to invest hugely in a game that is only popular for a few weeks of each year. So, if you want a feature-packed title to while away the festive hours then look elsewhere, but for a bit of novelty Christmas fun with a reasonably high variance Festive Indulgence will do the job.
