Microgaming is definitely in the holiday spirit with the release of their Christmas–themed, high volatility, Festive indulgence online slot. The reels are cleverly depicted as the snow-frosted panes of a large window, set in a lamplit brick wall. The music is a cheerful, sleigh-bell driven soundtrack and compliments the visuals perfectly. The slot features fairly simple gameplay, offering only free spins as a bonus in-game benefit.
If you land 3, 4, or 5 wrapped gift scatters, the present pops open you will be gifted a generous 15 free spins and a coin win of 5x, 20x and 500x your stake, respectively. Landing a further 3 scatters re-triggers the feature, giving you yet another 15 free spins. The final aspect to this feature is that once the free spins round ends, a 3x multiplier is applied to your winnings to create a potentially large payout.
Festive indulgence doesn’t offer much in the way of novelty or newness. The Free spins mode is definitely rewarding, but may take a while to trigger; leaving you with not much else to do except spin the reels in a high volatility title that bafflingly opted for only a single bonus feature. The visuals and music provide a cheerful ambiance for people who enjoy festive themed slots, but it seems that in this case the wrapping is more appealing than the actual gift.
