Just in time for Christmas, one of our favourite software developers has released its Santa vs Rudolf slot for mobile devices. NetEnt’s Santa vs Rudolf is (as you’ve already guessed) a festive-themed game, and it comes with some similar special features to the same software manufacturer’s The Invisible Man slot.
For instance, you have Walking Wilds which involve not one, but two wilds symbols to help you create more wins, and when the two wilds collide, you gain entry to the fun-filled Free Spins Bonus.
The Free Spins Bonus lets you collect all wilds that appear for the chance to play one of two additional bonus features called Rudolf Spins and Santa’s Gifts. And, you get a little extra treat in your Christmas stocking as the Santa vs Rudolf slot game pays both ways in the base game and the Free Spins Bonus.
The most that you can win on any given spin while playing the slot is a tasty 1,000x your bet. The game uses 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines, and its RTP (Theoretical Return to Player) is 96.35%. Unlike most people would like to believe, Santa and Rudolf aren’t always the best of friends. After all, the run-up to the festive season can be stressful, and on Christmas Eve, the race to deliver everyone’s presents before time runs out must be positively exhausting. So, in Santa vs Rudolf, you have the two most popular Christmas characters fighting it out on the reels.
The sleigh is ready to take off from the wooden terrace outside Santa’s workshop, and the gifts that have yet to be loaded can be seen underneath the reels.
On the 5×3 reel set, you’ll encounter candy cane-shaped playing card symbols, reindeer snow globes, children’s letters to Santa, the sleigh, sacks of presents, and reindeer collars.
As we mentioned earlier, there are two wild symbols in the Santa vs Rudolf mobile slot, one of which is Santa and the other being Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Both symbols can substitute for all other symbols in the game.
The Santa vs Rudolf slot game does not use a scatter symbol.
One of our favourite special features, which is regularly triggered, is Walking Wilds.
In the base game, the Rudolf wild appears on the first reel where it then awards a re-spin as it moves one reel to the right. The re-spins continue until Rudolf disappears from view. The same process applies in reverse to the Santa wild, which begins on the fifth reel and moves one reel to the left while awarding a free re-spin.
However, the wilds don’t always drop off the reels in the Santa vs Rudolf online slot. Should they happen to meet on the same reel, the Free Spins Bonus is unlocked. You get 10 free games with both wild symbols being able to land on any reel. If the two wilds collide, you gain 4 more free games. You also get to collect the wilds via the meters at the top of the screen. Filling Santa’s meter gets you entry to the Santa’s Gifts Bonus while filling Rudolf’s meter gives you Rudolf Spins.Play Now
