Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is the most famous of the lot. His nose has plenty to do with that, but maybe this slot game tells us a little more about his demeanor.
It looks like he’s not too happy, for starters. Does he have a beef with Santa? Let’s see where this unusual take on a festive slot game is going to take us. You might be surprised at what lies in store… and so might Santa!
Which developer was feeling festive?
None other than the RTG team, or Realtime Gaming, to use their full name.
Game demo info
This is another RTG game that you can try first, without risking any cash to play it. If you’re not keen, you can move on to another game without losing anything.
A festive theme with a twist or two
Christmas-themed slot games come along every year… but rarely do you see something like this. That’s part of the appeal, of course, as RTG has given us an amusing slot where things are not as they seem…
Design pointers to note
Well, it’s festive, of course, so that means elves, penguins, Santa, Rudolph, and lots of snow. RTG might have resorted to playing card symbols, but they have at least made them out of wood. Well, they look like wooden ones anyway.
How to play Rudolph Awakens slots
There are five reels here, but sadly no progressive jackpot. The paytable tells you everything you should know about the prizes up for grabs.
Rudolph is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two, three, and four. He is a larger symbol able to appear over all three spots. If he partially appears on either the second or the fourth reel, he is nudged by the game to take over the entire thing.
Paylines in Rudolph Awakens
You can play on 30 lines in this game.
A choice of bets
One cent is good enough to get started with. There is a range of coins in the game, so if you would like to bet more and your budget would work with that, you do have other options.
The game must load before you can access the paytable. Make sure you do because you can learn plenty from it before you begin play.
No bonuses are included
There is something else though.
Free spins are available to be won
If Rudolph appears in full on the third reel, you’ll get 10 free games. The nudge feature can occur on the middle reel in these spins, along with reels two and four as per usual.
The triggering wild on the middle reel is frozen in ice before the games begin. If extra wilds appear on the other two reels, those are frozen too. Frozen wilds remain in position throughout the free games. The only way they’ll unfreeze is if a helpful elf comes along to do it.
The freebies have an extra symbol that might appear too. Whenever you spot the FREE GAMES symbol spin anywhere into view on reels one and five at the same time, you’ll get another free freebies.
No RTP info is provided
This is familiar when you’re looking at RTG slot games.
Do we love Rudolph Awakens?
Yes, and it’s because it offers something different. Frozen wilds fit with the wintry theme, and there are a few other quirky twists to look forward to as well. It is certainly worth 9 out of 10 points.
What is the biggest prize worth?
A huge 50,000x your triggering bet, as it turns out. We’re unsure how this would be achieved, but it sure would be nice to see, wouldn’t it?
Play for entertainment this Christmas
Or any day, really, as this slot is entertaining and keeps things nice and light.
