The Santa Vs Rudolf mobile slot may not have traditional Christmas spirit, but it’s jolly good fun watching these two fight it out to give the biggest wins.
At first, this Santa Vs Rudolf slot seems to have all the festive cheer you could possibly want: North Pole location? Check. Candy cane Ace to 10 symbols? Check. Raindeers, sleigh bells, presents, snowglobes and letters to Santa? Check, check, check.
Of course, this is one of the NetEnt slots and they don’t do ‘traditional’ Christmas, so what you have here is all-out warfare.
Rudolf has been a bad boy and he’s stolen Santa’s hat, and if he doesn’t get it by Christmas… well you won’t be getting all those gift cards you’ve asked for.
Santa and Rudolf are both wild symbols, except one will only show up on reel 1 and the other on reel 5. When they do they will give you 5 free re-spins of the reels as they move from left to right or right to left. Which is two more walking wilds than you get in the Jack and the Beanstalk slot review.
If Santa and Rudolf wilds meet on screen as they walk around, you trigger 10 free spins. Here things get more interesting because they are both punching to win.
The wilds can now land on any reel, and still, give you those free re-spins. Except once they fall off the screen, those wild symbols are collected.
You may not collect many in a free spin round, and that’s ok because you’ll get another set of free spins in less than 100 spins. But if you collect 8 of either of them you trigger one of two bonus features.
If you get 8 Santa wilds, you trigger a simple click me bonus. Here you’ll get maybe 10x to 50x your bet if you are lucky.
The person you really want on your side is Rudolf who will give you 3 free spins with 5 guaranteed sticky wilds on each spin. It’s a beautiful sight that will make you believe that one fat man can travel around the world in one night and deliver riches to everyone.
Those riches, however, aren’t huge. You’ll win maybe 1,000 times your bet at the top end of the scale. But with features that hit often and a fairly generous paytable, as long as you keep your expectation clears, you should have good fun playing on this Santa Vs Rudolf online slot.

Walking Wilds and Respins: There are two walking wilds symbols. Both will substitute for other symbols to create a win, just like in Jack and
Rudolph wild will appear on reel 1 and move horizontally from left to right, one reel at a time, giving you 5 free re-spins. Santa wilds, on the other hand, will appear on reel 5 and move horizontally from right to left, one reel at a time, also giving you 5 free re-spins.
Free Spins: If a Santa and Rudolph meet in the middle, merging together, you activate 10 free spins. You can retrigger the free spins by catching the two wilds together during the bonus games - each time they do you get an extra 4 free spins. The maximum amount of spins you can win is 30.
During the free spins, both Santa and Rudolf wilds can appear anywhere on the reels, making it more likely they will show up. Each Rudolph or Santa that falls off the reels will be collected in a meter above the reels. Each meter has 8 spaces.
If you manage to fill the meter, you trigger one of the two bonus games. Whichever one you get first, you won't trigger both.
Rudolf Spins: When you collect 8 Rudolf wilds in the free spins meter, you trigger the Rudolf Spins. Here you'll play 3 free spins with 5 reindeer wilds randomly put in place and staying sticky in place for all 3 spins.
Santa's Gifts: When you collect 8 Santa wilds in the free spins meter, you trigger the Santa's Gifts click me game. This is a 3 stage click and collect, where you pick from 1 of 5 items to reveal cash prizes, move on to the next stage, or collect. The maximum amount of final multiplier you can get is 4x.
Not quite a traditional Christmas slot, but then again, sometimes it's better to play a game that surprises you.
And unless you've played NetEnt's previous The Invisible Man game, this Santa Vs Rudolf slot will surprise you, not just with it's funny 'anti-Christmas' theme, but because you get lots of walking wilds and free spins.
The wins here are no where near as much as more volatile games such as the Dead or Alive 2 slot, but they're still as sweet as the candy canes on the reels.
Santa Vs Rudolf is a 5x3 reel slot machine with 20 fixed paylines, two walking wilds, free spins, and two bonus features within the free spins.
