In brief: Some get bad case
More specifically people with immune system deficiencies can get a much more severe form of the disease with a greater burden of mites and more inflammatory changes in the skin.
This form of scabies is called "crusted scabies". For the most part simply acquiring the disorder is just a matter of exposure to someone with the disease.
