Festive Indulgence Video Slot Review

Festive Indulgence: Demo

Eat, drink and be merry in Festive Indulgence, a simple, volatile Christmas-themed video slot from Microgaming. Played using a 5 reel, 9 payline game engine, the pick of the goodies on offer here is the bonus round that awards up to 30 free spins. Boosting your winning chances are stacked wilds and a 3x multiplier which trebles all payouts. Enjoy some festive frolics from between 9p and £45 per spin.

Classy design

The design in Festive Indulgence here could come straight from a Christmas card. The setting is the front of a traditional village shop. On the reels you’ll see A to 9 royals as well as bells, a Christmas cake, a turkey and an elf. The top standard symbol is the laughing Santa which spins in stacked formation too – it pays up to 83.33 times your bet for 5 on a payline. The wreath is the wild and pays 111.11 times your bet for 5 in combination!

Free Spins feature

There’s only 1 bonus feature in Festive Indulgence – the Free Spins feature. It can be a real cracker though. To trigger it, you’ll need to land 3, 4 or 5 of the gift box scatter anywhere on the reels on the same spin. As well as a cash bonus of 5, 20 or 500 times your bet, your reward is 15 free spins.

During those free spins, the wild spins in stacked formation. Also in play is a 3x multiplier so all payouts are trebled. Re-triggers are possible too. Landing 3 gift boxes awards another round of 15 free spins taking your total to 30.

High variance

The traditional design and Christmas theme might trick you into thinking that this was a gentle video slot. It’s anything but. This is a high variance game which makes it something of an outlier for a game aimed at players during the festive season. With the 3x multiplier, you could win 3,000 times your bet on every free spin (1,000 x bet max win with 3x multiplier).

There’s nothing on offer in Festive Indulgence that you won’t have seen in plenty of other video slots. The design is very well put together though and the simple gameplay can deliver some knockout action. Expect losing runs when your Christmas stocking will be filled with the equivalent of lumps of coal.

If the 3x multipliers work their magic during the feature round, then Festive Indulgence could turn into a real Christmas cracker. I would also recommend you play Quickspin’s Polar Paws slot which can pay 4,000 times your bet on every spin.
