Christmas comes early in this jolly slot from NetEnt. Santa vs Rudolf slot features two best friends going at each other while offering you huge game wins with every spin you take on the reels.
This slot has you spinning for wins on a 5-reel, 3-row setup with 20 Paylines for triggering game wins.
You will find Angry Santa and Rudolf symbols to be most entertaining and rewarding. They serve as wilds – helping you trigger decent payouts.
Extra bonuses come in the form of extra free spins and random wilds along with its win-both-ways mechanic that gives more ways to land winning combos.
How to play
Get the reels spinning with 0.20 credits up to a maximum of 400 credits. Game symbols include a letter to Santa, a snow globe, Rudolf’s collar, and candy cones shaped like playing cards. The best paying symbol here is pegged at 25x the stake with 5 of Santa’s sleigh lined up.
Santa Vs Rudolf Slot Special Features
The game offers a double dose of wilds in the form of Santa and Rudolf. They will both substitute for other game symbols and offer Wild Re-Spins.
Wild Re-Spins Feature
The Rudolf wild symbol can only be landed on reels 1 and will move horizontally, 1 reel to the right at the beginning of each wild re-spin. The Santa wild can only be landed on reels 5 and moves 1 reel to the left on each re-spin.
Free Spins Features
If both wild symbols meet in the same position on the reels, they will lock together in position and merge. Wins will then be calculated and paid out.
After that, the Free Spins feature will come into play and you will be awarded 10 free spins. Merging 3 Rudolf and Santa wilds will offer you up to 30 free spins.
You could also win 4 additional free spins if both wild symbols merge during a free spin.
You will also find 2 meters on the reel representing both wilds. When a Rudolf or Santa wild is landed and moves off the reels, it will fill one space on its corresponding meter.
You will have to fill 8 spaces to get the meter full and when that happens before the end of the free spins, an extra bonus feature will be triggered.
Rudolf Spin Feature
Filling the Rudolf meter will trigger the Rudolf Spin feature. Here, 3 free spins and 5 wilds will be randomly placed on the reels for each free spins.
Santa’s Gift Features
With the Santa meter filled, the Santa’s Gifts feature comes into place. 3 items sets will be offered and you will have to pick one which could be either a cash prize, a win multiplier, or end the feature. The multiplier can increase your total wins by up to 4x.
You won’t find any massive jackpot offers on the reels but the game makes up for it with decent game wins.
Return to Player (RTP)
This is a medium to high volatility slot with an RTP of 96.35%.
Santa Vs Rudolf Slot might be NetEnt’s most exciting Christmas slot yet. The game has you hitting small base game payouts and if you’re lucky, you could trigger bigger wins with the bonus features in play.
