A Comedic & Fun-filled Christmas Mobile Slot

Christmas mobile slots tend to come thick and fast around that special time of the year. So was the case in December 2019, as Santa vs Rudolf slot found its way into the gold rush casino site. This NetEnt game isn’t like other Christmas-themed casino games, though. Far from being a generic bauble and wreath adorned mobile slot, this one deals with an ongoing duel between Santa, and his favourite (or as the game implies, formerly favourite) reindeer. 

Comedy is at the heart of NetEnt’s Santa vs Rudolf slot. However, affordability and value for money are also high up on this game’s list of traits. The game is played over 5 reels and 20 lines, and costs as little as 20p a spin. Stakes can rise no higher than £100 a turn, so the game is very much affordable, which is what you would expect at that time of the year. This mobile slot also carries a non-progressive jackpot worth 500x a bet, has a decent RTP and only offers up medium volatility action. It is nothing less but a Christmas cracker.

Santa vs Rudolf Slot Special Features 

Players will note that the Santa vs Rudolf slot has not one, but two wild symbols. These appear as both the title characters and they can substitute for all icons without exception. Raging Rudolph appears on the first reel, while a stroppy Santa can spring up on the fifth. When they show up, they do so as walking wilds. Rudolph will walk towards the rightmost reel, and Santa the leftmost as re-spins are handed out. 

Should both Santa and Rudolph bump into one another on the reels of Santa vs Rudolf slot, they will lock and engage in a duel. A free spin feature is then delivered, with a total of 10 free games offered to players. Up to three of each icon can merge, meaning a potential total of 30 free spins are on offer with this game. 

Santa vs Rudolf Slot Free Spins & Bonus Features 

Once the bonus begins, both Rudolph and Santa can now appear on all five of Santa vs Rudolf slot’s reels. They will continue to walk across the reels as the bonus round is played out. However, if the meet in this feature, an additional four free games are added to a player’s tally. There are also two metres (one for each character) in the bonus. When one of the characters disappears from the reels, its respective meter rises. 

Filling Rudolph’s meter will hand players three free games during which random reindeer wilds can pop up across the reels of Santa vs Rudolf slot. However, filling Santa’s meter will see a click and win bonus offered. Of the five items on the screen, one contains a cash prize, while the others provide increasing multipliers worth up to 4x, or nothing at all.

Fun Facts!

Santa vs Rudolf slot features our favourite reindeer with the vibrant nose. Do you know how the story of Rudolph began?

Who doesn't know or hasn't heard of the well-known and well-loved reindeer of all time? But surely, not many people have a clue about how it all began. Here's a short version of how it all started.

The character of this famed reindeer was first introduced in a book written by Robert May titled: 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer'. It was commissioned and published by the department store Montgomery Ward for their annual book giveaway event. Did you know that May was toying with names Rollo and Reginald before finally going for Rudolph? Also, Rudolph's famous red nose almost didn't come to pass. In the year 1930's, having a red nose was clearly associated with drunkenness and alcoholism so this feature was rejected by the writer's bosses at first. In its first Christmas season, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was such a huge success that the store successfully distributed around 2.4 million copies. Ten years later, the likewise popular song version was adapted and introduced by May's brother-in-law, Johnny Marks.
