Christmas 2019 saw a fresh take on the theme in the NetEnt slot Santa vs Rudolph. The story revolves around Santa and his reindeer Rudolf, but this time it comes with a twist. Rudolph has hidden Santa’s cap, so he cannot deliver presents to the kids around the world. The slot has a cartoony feel to it with nicely designed symbols and a festive soundtrack.
The 5-reel, 20-payline slot is all about its two characters. They assume the role of Wilds that move across the reels in opposite directions. While playing the game, you will benefit from respins and free spins where you have access to 2 more bonus features, Santa’s Gifts and Rudolf Spins. Stay with us to learn more about the action-packed gameplay and how to win up to 1,000x your stake.
Play Santa vs Rudolph
Once you reach the North Pole, you will meet Santa and Rudolf on either side of the reels. The upper ends of the paytable are populated by theme-related symbols including snow globes, sacks with presents, Santa’s sleigh and so on. The rest of positions are filled by playing card symbols. Santa and Rudolph are Wilds that are key to triggering bonus features.
How to Play
The slot uses a standard 5x3 layout with 20 paylines to place your bets on. They can be anywhere from $0.20 and $400 per spin. Land three or more symbols on a payline in succession left to right and vice versa and you will win a prize. Players who would like to watch the show without interruption can activate up to 1,000 automatic spins.
Strategy & Tips
Rudolf Wild lands on the reel 1 and moves 1 position to the right while awarding respins. Santa Wild hits the reel 5 and moves in the opposite direction while granting respins. If these two meet in the same spot, they lock together and merge. After payouts are awarded, you will receive 10 free spins. Up to 30 free spins are available with Santa and Rudolf Wilds landing on all 5 reels.
Above the reels, you will see 2 meters filled by Wilds leaving the reels during free games. Once you fill one of the meters with 8 symbols, you will unlock either Santa’s Gifts or Rudolf Spins. The former offers cash prizes and up to 4x multiplier while the latter grants 3 spins with 5 Rudolph Wilds added to random positions on the reels.
You can play the NetEnt product even when it’s not the Christmas season as it is highly exciting. If you want to give it a spin or two it on the go, no problem, it is fully optimised for mobile play.
