Rudolph Awakens Slots
Everyone knows the most famous reindeer in Santa's flock - Rudolph, of course, complete with his red nose. But if you think everyone in Santa's team gets along famously, well… that isn't the case. At least, it doesn't seem to be, as this amusing slot game reveals.
If you want to find out more about the possible bad moods and confrontations that might occur at the North Pole, the Rudolph Awakens slot tells us more.
Who came up with this quirky festive idea?
Realtime Gaming has developed a few neat Christmas slots over the year, but we think this might be one of their best yet.
You can try a demo of the game too
This is always a good thing, especially if you are keen to check out the various features you can expect to see in the game before paying to play it.
A neat twist on a familiar theme
Christmas is a theme that most - if not all - software developers have tackled. Few have placed any sort of twist on that theme though - not like RTG has done with this slot. It carries with it a sense of humor and an inkling of what might be going on behind the scenes…
A chilly design
It looks as if the relationship between Rudolph and Santa has deteriorated in this game. That's not the only chilly thing about the slot though, as it is set in the North Pole and features a snow-covered scene. The playing card icons look as if they have been made from wood, while there are penguins and elves among the other symbols to be found here.
Basic features to expect from Rudolph Awakens
This is a five-reel slot, but it doesn't qualify as a progressive, unfortunately. The special icon to look for is, of course, Rudolph. He appears as the Rudolph Wild on the middle three reels of the game.
Reels two and four carry special features with this wild. If one appears on just one or two spots on the reel, it can nudge from that position until it covers the entire reel. Only then are prizes for that spin calculated and awarded.
How many paylines does the game have?
There are 30 of them.
Is this an affordable game?
We think many players will appreciate the one-cent minimum line bet in action here. There are other coins available too, so it is possible to wager more on every spin if your budget allows for it.
If you haven't played the game yet, make sure this is your first stop once you have loaded it ready to play. It shows you all the symbols and explains the features of the game, as we are about to do here.
No bonus in this slot
Don't be disappointed, however - we haven't covered the best feature yet.
Could you secure some free spins in this game?
You could, and the trigger for making this happen is to find Rudolph occupying all three positions on the middle reel. This awards 10 free spins. The Rudolph Nudge feature occurs only on reels two and four in the base game, but in these spins, it can happen on reel three too.
That full-height wild is frozen for the freebies. If wilds appear on the second and fourth reels, they'll stay frozen there for the duration of the games too. This continues until an elf comes along to free Rudolph from his frozen prison.
Watch out too for another special symbol to appear. The role of this symbol is simple to see, as the message on it says EXTRA GAMES. You can get a further three free games whenever this icon appears on the first and fifth reels simultaneously.
RTP hasn't been revealed
We'll let you know if that changes, but most RTG slots aren't released with this info.
