The cozy months are coming again and so is Christmas. Various software providers, including NetEnt, are happy to take this opportunity to develop an online slot that is all about Christmas. As always, NetEnt has now transformed an existing video slot into a Christmas slot. This time they chose The Invisible Man. The features will therefore be exactly the same. Where Santa and his reindeer are good friends in real life, they have a big fight in NetEnt’s Santa vs Rudolf video slot because Rudolf, the reindeer, has stolen his hat. The slot can be played from November 28, 2019 at our accredited NetEnt Casinos and for the people who have never played The Invisible Man slot, we will explain everything below.
How does the Santa vs. work Rudolf slot machine.
The game is played on a standard playing field of five reels, three rows and 20 fixed paylines. Santa vs Rudolf also uses the “Win-both-ways” mechanism. This means that there is a winning combination with three identical symbols from left to right and from right to left on a payline. The game is also available in the Touch® variant and can therefore be played on any device from £/$/€0.20 and up to £/$/€100 per spin and has a payout percentage of 96.3%. Santa and Rudolf are both Wild symbols and represent every other symbol. During the basic game Rudolf will only land on reel one and Santa only on roll five. As soon as a Wild symbol lands, the Walking Wild feature will be activated. This means that the player gets re-spins and the symbols move each spin one position to the left (Santa) or to the right (Rudolf) until the symbols reach the final reel. During the free spins feature – which we explain below – the Wild symbols can land on any reel.
Santa vs. Rudolf Free spins feature.
When Santa and Rudolf land on the same row, they meet each other and the player gets 10 free spins. As already written above, the Wild symbols can land on any reel here. You will also see two meters above the playing field: one for Santa’s Gift and one for Rudolf Spins. Every time a Wild symbol lands it will be added to the corresponding meter. When a meter is full the corresponding Bonus feature will be activated:
- Santa’s Gift: when Santa’s Gift is activated, the player is shown a pick-and-click game. The game has three rounds and can give a bet multiplier, cash prizes or a free spins multiplier. When the player has Santa’s hat, he is immediately sent to the next round.
- Rudolf Spins: the player receives 4 Rudolf Spins with five Wild symbols placed at any position every spin. These are not Walking Wilds and will therefore disappear every spin and be placed in a random position again.
Symbols and symbol value of the Santa vs. Rudolf slot machine.
Santa vs Rudolf has ten regular symbols, five of which are low symbols: A, K, Q, J and 10, which are completely designed in candy cane style. The five high symbols consist of Rudolf’s bridle, Santa’s sleigh, bag of gifts, a snow globe and a Christmas letter. How the symbols are designed and what the associated values are can be seen in the table below.
